I’m getting ready for SS18 and that means a whole new wardrobe to prepare! Although I love trying on new clothes and keeping our style moving, trying to look on-trend every day takes time. That’s where the Effortlessly Stylish trend steps in.
But what does it take to be effortlessly stylish and how can you start straight away? Explaining the essentials to master this season’s most fabulous look is leading knitwear retailer, QUIZ…
Dressing to dazzle with jumper dresses
There’s such a huge variety of dresses, it’s hard to pinpoint which one you want to wear every morning. The jumper dress makes the ideal effortlessly stylish fashion piece, as it just seems to look good with everything. Comfy and chic in one, it takes no time to match garments with this dress style, plus, long sleeves mean you don’t need to scour your closet for a complementing coat either!
Wear yours with neutral pumps or ankle boots and a pair of black tights, or pull on knee-high, suede boots for a knock-out look that takes no time to prepare. If you’re in the mood to show off your curves, wrap a chunky belt around your dress to nip your waist in.
Knitwear is in whatever the season — but to make it an effortless trend, choose a few staple pieces, then mix and match them with jeans and skirts. This year’s biggest trends include cable-knit, striped and oversized jumpers, so bear these in mind to keep your outfits on fleek.
Layering your look
Sometimes, the hardest part of creating an outfit is deciding how cold or warm you might be in what you’re wearing (e.g. going from a small office to a windy street). Get rid of this problem and make dressing easier with layering. For example, you can wear a polo-neck jumper underneath a square-necked top or go for a turtle-neck sweater under a smart blazer to create an office-ready look. Couple with your favourite pair of jeans and an ankle boot to fully master the look.
Rocking the effortlessly stylish boot
Boots keep us warm, comfy and on-trend throughout the year — but which style is in vogue right now? The sock boot features a pointed toe, high heel and textured fabric that fits to the ankle, which makes it an easy shoe to quickly pull on with jeans during the day and a stylish skirt on a night. When it comes to colours, black is a great choice as it can be worn with pretty much any outfit. Choose a pair with a chunky heel so that they’re suitable for all occasions.
Accessorising with minimal effort
In SS18, you’re going to want to make a statement — and accessories are a quick, easy and effective way to achieve this. Tassels, chunky metal and huge hoops are all ideal this season and can be matched with most outfits. Choose a black or gold pair to make sure that they complement your ensemble and keep them in your bag to slip in for after-work drinks.
When it comes to bags, you’re going to want something that you can match with a wide range of outfits so that you don’t waste time on a morning digging out the perfect style and colour. Black is an ideal option to go for if you’re hoping to use it every day — buy one with a cute pattern to keep things interesting or get a brightly coloured one, such as red or gold, and put it with matching shoes. Pair with jeans and a dressy top for a cute look.
Basically, all you need to do is invest in a few fashion staples to master the effortlessly stylish look.
