Over the past few seasons we’ve seen a definite shift in fashion’s approach to shape; the way in which our clothes fit us, work for us, and make us feel. Who’d have thought the previously prim midi skirt would be the go-to shape to covet, or luxe silk, sports-inspired joggers the trouser type to rock for night? Silhouettes have softened, our capsule classics have been revisited and refreshingly revamped, and cuts are cleaner, simpler. Everything is suddenly so wearable.



Think shirt dresses, all-occasion jumpsuits, roomy yet super-soft knits and flared hems on skirts. Fluid-fitting blouses and timeless shirts in boldly blocked hues are back in a big way, and coats are either designed to cocoon and effortlessly layer-over everything we own, or belt up at the waist to both cheat and accentuate an hourglass silhouette.

Our new hero trousers don’t restrict, they float and skim over hips and flatter our body shapes, sitting neatly at the ankle. Skinny jeans are here for the long haul, but cuts that consider our bodies are now well and truly in. Flared finishes and full skirts add elegance, whilst balancing out our bodies and accentuating our slimmest part (the waist), and the must-have sweatshirt in all it’s various forms offers just the right amount of cosy cool to all types of looks (try Whistles and Mango for cute motifs and luxurious textures).
