Here at Robinsons, we’re strong believers in the age-old adage of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. It’s an ethos that more and more designers are getting on board with too, stretching out the trends across three or four seasons, rather than recommending a complete wardrobe overhaul to coincide with each new collection. With the festivities finished and January almost here, we’re shunning the suggestion that a new year has to mean a whole new you, or rather a whole new wardrobe. Instead, we’re concentrating on the outfit elevators that will raise your fashion game and your spirits through the grey days of January.
The pleated skirt has stolen the spotlight in recent seasons but we’re sensing a switch in shapes for the new year. More than a secretarial staple, the pencil skirt works with the same trainers and tees we were pairing our pleated skirts with throughout last year, only with a more structured shape we can’t get enough of.
After the excitement and sparkle of Christmas, the dark days of January can feel positively endless and painfully dull. A colour injection can go a long way in combating the winter blues, so make the most of our Mulberry sale and swap your classic black handbag for a pop of ocean green or violet. It’s a failsafe way to breathe new life into your favourite looks of last year.
There is nothing we love more than a perfectly cut pair of jeans by Jacob Cohen or True Religion. However, if you’re keen to update your look for 2018, switch things up once or twice a week in trousers. This Sarah Pacini style is cut slim through the legs and smartens a coordinating knit.
From lending new life to this season’s checked blazer to totally reinventing cable knits, there’s little a primary colour pop can’t do. Chunky knits aren’t going anywhere but the ones we’re coveting now are red, yellow and blue. Worn with grey checks, they’re a seasonal game changer.
Think of beige as a palette cleanser after weeks on end of glitz and glamour. While our love of black is eternal, beige is a brighter for January. Nothing is as chic as a beige coat by MaxMara, or a pair of beautifully cut beige trousers worn with a high-neck sweater.
