Published 03 November

As the state emerges from a long hibernation, we’re starting to think more about coming together, heading out and enjoying the good life again – and with that comes welcome thoughts of warm weather, strappy shoes and fewer layers.

 

Thankfully, updating your look each season doesn’t have to mean a major overhaul; often, it just comes down to a few thoughtfully chosen on-trend pieces that can help you adapt to the season and keep your look current. Here, we explore some of the freshest styles hitting the racks right now.

 

A TOUCH OF ROMANCE

With ruffles, frills, lace and billowy sleeves all starring, we’re sensing a definite hint of romance and femininity in women’s fashion this season. Adding to the romance are silk and sheer fabrics in a mix of pastels, neutrals and pinks. Mixing it up, you’ll also see vintage-style florals, gingham and bold checks appearing

PUMP UP THE VOLUME

When it comes to volume, right now there’s no such thing as minimal. From wide-leg pants and multi-tiered maxi skirts to puffy balloon sleeves, bigger is better. Voluminous culottes, baggy paper-bag jeans and oversized sweaters are also making their mark.

PRINTS CHARMING 

Forget what you wore as a teenager, tie-dye prints are having a new moment. This time around they’re appearing in more palatable neutrals and pastels, on everything from leggings and skirts to eveningwear. Another ‘70s throwback that’s been given new life is the paisley print, which you’ll now see in subtle earthy hues, violets and teals – for guys and girls.
