1. Suit up

A wardrobe essential for many, pantsuits (and blazers) were out in full force on the streets of Milan this week. From crisp and tailored silhouettes to relaxed and casual fits, there’s no denying a pantsuit can pull together a look in a jiffy. 

2. Make it mini

The mini bag trend is here to stay, and it’s a liberating feeling carrying nothing but the essentials. From hand-held purses to adorable minis with straps and handles, consider a bright-hued iteration for a welcome pop of colour.

3. The coat dress

A classic trench or longline sleeveless vest can make an entire outfit—never mind what’s underneath! Pair with below-the-knee boots and don’t be afraid to show a little skin—after all, the sun is coming out to play. 

4. Lovely lilac

While we appreciate the vivid blues, greens, pinks, and oranges seen on recent runways around the world, lilac is undoubtedly having a moment, a hue that is fun and sophisticated at the same time. Dare we say, it could even be the new millennial pink. 

5. Monochrome moment

The universally-loved beige is a great starting point when it comes to a monochrome look—because after all, sometimes bright is boring. Don’t be afraid to add interest to your all-tonal outfit by mixing varying shades together—and play around with black and white accessories for a finishing touch. 

6. Cool collars

These days it’s all about the necklines—from bold Peter Pan-esque bibs to stylishly exaggerated point collars. Consider a shirt with puffy sleeves or graphic details for a stand-out look, or let your collar do all the talking on its own. 

7. Micro sunglasses

They may be a polarising hangover from the 90’s, but micro sunglasses don’t need to be teeny tiny. Choose a rounded or oval shape for extra shade, and revel in the opportunity to show off your brows. Just like the mini bag trend, once you start, you won’t be able to stop.
