For a girl that loves (and lives in) neutral tones, I am trying to be more adventurous this year.

For a girl that loves (and lives) in monochromatic tones, I am trying to be more adventurous and introduce more colour this year.

I have picked the right season to give it a whirl with the huge resurgence of colour, hello, burgundy, green, bright red and pink. So, watch this space

For now, I will stick to my trusty colour palette to share with you five of my favourite trends that I will be wearing non-stop this winter.

1. Bell Sleeve

We have seen this trend bubbling away for the last few seasons, and this winter it is obvious it’s not going anywhere. This Seed dress is the perfect example of the bell sleeve done right – it is so wearable. As much as I love the look of the super exaggerated and long fluted sleeve, they can be hard to wear in everyday life. That’s why this dress has it all, the sleeve finishes at the perfect point on your hand, and the shape also flatters lots of different body shapes with its bodycon material and tailored cut.

2.The High Waist 

Ladies, it is all about that high-waist. Be it, denim, pants or skirts. High-waisted pieces are the way to go. What’s not to love?! It is super flattering, and I love that it gives you freedom to tuck in your shirts, knits or tee’s to make them the hero (yes, the old shirt tuck is a big trend too). The key to getting the look right (and not looking like Mum jeans) is making sure the fit of your pants is on point like these flattering Seed pair.

3. The Puffer Jacket

Puffers have dominated the runways in recent seasons and now is the time for us give this look a try. Shorter lengths that accentuate the waist get my tick. This muted pink version is the perfect addition to your weekend look. I love teaming it with these skinny jeans and blush sneakers for a head to toe tonal look.

4. The Ruffle

Ruffles combined with the asymmetrical neckline have to be two of my favourite trends. It is a feminine but sleek look. I like to make ruffles look less ‘pretty’ by pairing the trend with denim or leather.

5. The Sneaker 

The sneaker will continual to be extremely popular in 2017. It was more about the plain and minimal sneaker in the past, but now we are seeing interesting embellishments, colours and even logos to make them unique. These kahki and stripe sneaks hit the mark.
