Time to hit refresh…
The Christmas decorations have been taken down. Mulled wine doesn’t seem as appealing anymore. And you’re trying desperately to remember those #goals you set yourself for Twenty Seventeen. Let’s face it: January is pretty dismal.
That being said, there’s no incentive quite like new year to make us re-evaluate our style situ. Work wear update? Feel like creating a French-inspired capsule wardrobe?
With a plethora of new collections and buzzed brands to get swatted up on, there’s been no better time to experiment in the sartorial stakes. From the eye-popping colours, cuts and cult icons about the takeover your social feed – Grazia picks the seven best resolutions every fashion girl can actually follow this year...
Make like Julia Roberts
From L-R: Julia Roberts attending the 1990 Golden Globes in an oversized mens suit from Giorgio Armani; Céline SS17 show
Power shoulders are back - and they’ve never looked so good. Think early ‘90s Julia Roberts (oh, the hair!) meets Céline girl Spring Summer 2017.
From L-R: Dior; Michael Kors SS17
Slogans made headlines during Fashion Week – from ‘We Should All Be Feminists’ emblazoned on white t-shirts at Dior to Ashley Williams’ 80s-esque sweaters. You can even custom-make your own embroidered tee at Double Trouble, for just £39. Pair with some faded flair jeans - sorted.
Frilly shirt, £29.99, Zara
Oversized sleeves and accessories were big news at shows from Chloé and DKNY to Mulberry. But we’ll be turning to the reigning high-street brand – Zara – to stock up on all things oversized. Ideal 'brunching outfit'.
Back to basics
Layering is key this season. To nail the new normcore vibe seen on the runway, invest in an oversized trench coat a la Burberry, mens blazers and big khaki kaftans.
Invest in a pink pick-me-up
Pink drink jumper, £69, PSC
The bubblegum hue gets a punk makeover this year (see Molly Goddard and Gucci), that even those allergic to all things pink can be swayed. We’ll also be ordering this cute cover-up from cult brand PSC, before they sell out.
Shop the (new) look
From L-R: Susanna Lau in Molly Goddard; Pandora Sykes wearing Alice Archer and Attico co-founder Giorgia Tordini
If you’re after a style re-vamp, fill your wardrobe with the hot new brands to name drop in 2017. Unique embroidered dresses from LFW star on the rise Alice Archer? Attico's ward(robe) staples? Dreamy.
Slide into spring
Robert Clergerie's 'Gigy' slides, £270, Net-a-Porter
Don’t worry if you’re still not convinced about ‘fancy’ crocs this season – we’ve got our eyes on neon pool slides to soft pastel suede sandals from Robert Clergerie at Net A Porter.
