Top three must have trends this winter

Remember when skinny jeans were a “new” trend? They seemed scary and a bit too tight, and we all swore we’d never trade in our bootleg jeans for them. Fast forward at least a decade later, and skinny jeans are a staple in every one of our wardrobes. Some of us (ahem) have 20+ pairs!

But as the fashion gods would have it, the trends are changing once again. This year, we’re starting to favour wide-leg pants, straight and flared jeans, oversized jackets, even more oversized pants, and puffer jackets that look a couple of sizes too big… just the way we like them.

Here’s a breakdown of three key winter trends you’re probably already loving and if not, you will be by the end of the winter season (or this blog).

Teddy coats

Last year we got a little snippet of the teddy coat trend, but the options were few and far between and usually a bit too pricey. Then came winter 2018, bringing with it teddy coats in every shape and colour imaginable. The best part? They are a trend in almost all of our favourite stores, from Glassons to General Pants, so you can find one that suits your style and budget. Opt for a longer version if you plan on wearing them with skinny jeans or pants, or a mini dress. Wearing high-waisted jeans and a crop? Go for a short version!

Camo

First there was stars, then there was gingham, and now there’s camo. It’s the superstar print of the season! This is great news, because camo is effortlessly cool and also distracts the eye, making it very forgiving. If you’re loving camo print at the moment, you’re in luck. It’s available in a range of different styles and shapes, like Destiny’s Child-inspired military sets from Bardot, and super crop denim jackets from Glue Store. Regardless of what you go for, one thing remains the same: it’s very street, and should be styled as such.

Sportswear

If there’s one trend that reigns supreme in 2018, it’s sportswear. Think of it like the modern take on activewear, which is a look we’ve all been loving (and taking to brunch) for the past few seasons. The difference here is that our sportswear is extremely oversized, very puffy, and really, really comfy. Experiment with this look by adding a puffer to your wardrobe, or just go for it head-to-toe by wearing your puffer with tube tops, military pants, sneakers or combat boots and graphic shades.
