5 Stylish Ideas for January 2018

5 stylish ideas January 2018.png

I don’t know about you all, but my feelings about winter go pretty much like this every year:

November: Ooh, that chilly, crisp air, those foggy mornings, sweater weather, yay!

December to January 1st: Smiling at the snowflakes outside, bundled up under a soft blanket, book in hand.

January 2nd: ….. are you kidding me, can we just get to summer already??!

So ok, we’re still saddled with another couple of months of drab, grey, rainy, windy weather. But the good part is that now is a great time to take advantage of that New Year energy to step up our style game! There are countless looks and trends to try out in the upcoming months (hello, January sales!), so here’s a little inspo to help get you started:

Glitter all the way

Glitter and sequins are huge for AW17/18! So why not have a bit of fun with them, and walk the line between classy and edgy? This bare shoulder dress is to die for, and I can’t think of a better complement to it than a biker-inspired leather jacket and a show stopping pair of sandals:

Ultra Violet breeze

Pantone’s 2018 colour also happens to be a favorite of mine. You can use Ultra Violet for a punch of vibrancy, or you can layer it in a more breezy, translucent fabric for an ethereal vibe. Slip a velvety, ruby coloured dress underneath and complete the texture trifecta with a furry coat. Boho-chic is not just for summer!

Crimson love

Red has been everywhere this winter, and the good part is that you won’t need to forget about your cherry coloured pieces come spring. There’s always a way to incorporate this rich shade in your look, whether it’s through a big, bold coat or a plush matte lipstick:

On the fringe
Thanks to the popularity of the 70’s in recent seasons, fringe is BIG this winter. And who can blame you for wanting to sport it? It’s fun, it’s swishy and it’s such a statement in and of itself. One small suggestion- if you do choose a fringed piece, go all out with it and own it. It’s not for the shy, so wear it boldly and have fun!

Not so plain plaid
Plaid is amazing for winter, and as one of the star prints of 2018, I think it’s worth a double take. From a super preppy look, to boss lady chic, to a 50’s darling, plaid is a really easy way infuse that British air into your look. My tip: don’t make it too propper- plaid is already classic, so pair it with an out there piece to keep it from looking stuffy.

I hope you liked my suggestions for fun winter 2018 trends and stylish ways to wear them. Now I’d be super happy to hear if you tried any of my ideas and what you thought of them!

      1. I used to be so into clothes. Not so much anymore because my lifestyle doesn’t require it. I still love looking at them! Thanks for the opportunity.

      2. So sweet of you, Julia! I’m so glad to be able to do it, and thank you for always coming by ❤

      3. It’s fun to see what you have in mind. Happy to check out what you are up to. I am very into yoga pants now!!! HA! I did step it up yesterday when attending my niece’s concert. I wore a pink velvet top. I’m loving the return of the bell sleeves. Loved them the first time around and enjoying them once again!

    1. That’s awesome, we could all do with some pops of fiery red in our wardrobes, I think. Thanks for stopping by! Xx

    1. Hahah, that’s true, a bit of glitter can’t hurt! Plaid is indeed quite popular this year, and I’m really happy about it- it holds a lot of creative potential
