March marks the start of our Autumn, or Spring for all you lucky Northern Hemisphere dwellers. At the start of every new season, I like to cull anything I haven’t worn in a while and start looking for new pieces to invest in. When I’m stuck for what I want to buy next, I always turn to Pinterest and check out what new trends grace my feed.
I’ve noticed ever since Covid that trends are much slower. Gone are the days of having a style pop up, only to be updated and be outdated months later. For this reason, I feel much better about spending a little extra on quality pieces that I know will see me through the rest of the year. With that being said, here are the big fashion trends I’ve found that will last the distance (and save you money in the long run).
1. Relaxed Suiting
Matching blazers and trousers are here to stay. Since this trend has been around for a while, there are a heap of different styles to try. Monochrome beige, pink linen, shorts instead of pants – you name it, you can get it. I love a suit styled with a bralet for Spring or paired with a turtleneck and scarf for Autumn.
2. Sweater Sets
Sweater sets are another trend that has been around for a couple of seasons, but I love that they’re now being sold together making them more affordable. You can go super girly with fluffy, candy-coloured sets, or more “cool” with dark green or beige basic styles. This trend makes getting ready in the morning super easy – just chuck one of these on with a pair of jeans or trousers and you’re good to go.
3. Corset Tops
This is one of the more niche trends to try. I have always been a fan of the corset top trend, but now the styles are much more minimal and can look really sophisticated with a pair of relaxed fit trousers. I think the key here is to stay away from the tops that have cups built in because A. it’s hard to get the right fit and B. they’re not as sleek.
The most timeless of all the big fashion trends mentioned is the trench. A great one can last you a lifetime. They’ve been popping up everywhere lately – over shorts, jeans and even dresses. I think it’s this seasons new blazer and another trend that will be sticking around a while.
5. Knit Trousers
The last trend I’m going to mention is knit trousers. Made popular thanks to Covid, these are the more sophisticated version of sweatpants. Appropriate to wear out of the house, but equally as comfortable and easy to style with a pair of heels or classic sneakers. I can’t wait to wear these as we head into Autumn, with an oversized jumper and jacket.
