January Fashion Edit

440 440 Velvet

January can be a pretty weird month, even without making any resolutions. Most of us are trying to get back to the norm routine as quickly as possible in order to move forwards. Yet when we take a look at our closet, things feel a bit stale, if you know what I mean. But no worries. I got this! It’s all matter of perspective. Therefore if you’re in a bit of a style rut, the key is to figure out the pieces that will ease your wardrobe dressing into spring/summer 2019. Of course, keeping warm is still much of a priority. Thus, keep scrolling for some street fashion inspiration.

That's a fantastic looking outfit - a forest green sage trench coat over dark pink sweater and red pants. She looks stunning in a simple way. Image by Next.

So, let’s take some notes on style. First of all,¬†trading the sequins for some stand-out prints is pretty much a given. If you have a sweater with such a print, great. If you don’t then look for a shawl instead. Personally I have a few shawls, some with a stunning print and you won’t believe how much of a difference they make when I wear them with a more than ordinary outfit. They upgrade the outfit in an instant and keep me warm! ūüėČ

A black floral short dress paired with opaque black tights and ankle boots plus an ochre yellow shawl cardigan looks like a great idea even in the middle of winter. Image by Matalan.

I love a great casual outfit like that - a white textured sweater over of navy check flannel shirt, some distressed denims and knee high boots. So what if it's snowing?! Image by Matalan.

A red check shirt over black denims and a black beret hat oozes a bit of French style, doesn't it? Image by Matalan.

A clash of stripes. A white sweater with black horizontal stripes clashes against a long wrap green skirt with vertical white stripes. They're paired with some black ankle boots. Image by Miss Selfridge.

Then, there is layering and plenty of stripes and checks to last you a lifetime (sort of)! Therefore, don’t be afraid to clash prints. A fail-proof tip to remember in case you’re unsure of the result, is to put together an outfit where the pieces share at least one color. If you also happen to have an accessory in that shared color, add it on to make everything come together.

A red check coat looks stunning with a white blouse under it and black pants over a very thin stripe print ankle boot. Image by Bonmarche.

I like this lighter in color version of a checker coat paired with a dark yellow turtleneck and some dark denims. Image by Matalan.

A woman dressed in camel and coffee colors always looks chic, just like her. Her print blouse spices it all up just a bit. Image by Next.

Coffee and caramel colors are surely winner colors for we’re in for a lot of beige fashion coming spring of 2019. Having said that, millennial pink is still here and so are colors like red and green. Therefore, why not pair a little red with a little green and some hot pink to make you feel alright?! Pairing pieces with from opposing color families can make a real difference sometimes.

Casual party dresses and skirts can also be worn as long as you dress them down with i.e. a pair of sneakers or combat boots and an oversized coat. And let’s not forget the a-line skirt that always ensures a beautiful and feminine look that works all day any day.

A yellow shearling coat might be the best buy for this upcoming new season. Image by Miss Selfridge.

Now, I know the budgets after Christmas are always tight but it sale season here in Greece. Therefore, if you do spare some money for a couple of good buys, then I recommend a light hue check coat or a shearling coat. Whichever feels more right to you. Also keep in mind that yellow and green are going to be huge this up-coming spring season. And it can look awfully fresh and modern when combined with white, therefore a yellow shearling coat could be your next buy.

Finally, you may want to consider switching your black ankle boots to white ones. It will strip away winter’s fatigue in a flash and add on a little rock edge to it!

So there you have it! Hope you raid your wardrobe and try out new combinations for anything goes!!
