Oversize boy-style garments are back with a vengeance. What better time to take a page from your boyfriend’s look! Opt for classic, elegant pieces and luxe fabrics to maximize the impact. Ralph Lauren, in particular, has nailed this fashion-forward trend, with women’s suits that revisit traditional masculine classics. To top off the look, go for glam makeup featuring bright red lipstick and bold eyeliner.

This year marks the return of trends that shaped the 1960s. A blast from the past, the trends for 2015 have evolved, featuring bold and dazzling styles. According to Figaro magazine, this year’s fashions boast a rock & roll twist on the flower power of the 60s. Out with the classic; in with the mini, patterns, colors, and a modern vibe! Look to Brigitte Bardot for starlet inspiration. Break out the bangs and the cateye glasses!

Burberry and Prada have both come out with shearling coats—a must for keeping chilly weather at bay. In leather or suede, it’s a look that’s classic and elegant. For a bolder touch, go for a style with a large lambswool collar or opt for an unusual shade like burgundy. Quality is important, as a coat is a key piece that will complement all your outfits. A great investment for 2015! 

Folklore worldwide

Fashion trends for 2015 also reflect the influence of different cultures around the globe. Colour, embroidery, detailing, and patterns are everywhere. Look to traditional folk costumes from countries around the world for inspiration in creating a look straight out of a fairytale! Dolce & Gabanna and Vilshenko are two of the designers to watch. Opt for simple hairstyling, makeup, and accessories to showcase the details in your wardrobe pieces.
