There are no big trends this season, with the exception of slingback pumps from Prada, everything orange, and lots cable-knit sets. For the first time in a long time, I can say that this is the season where styling comes before the trends. There is less attention on what you buy, but what you do with the pieces you buy or already have. I have clients with wardrobes filled with clothing that they have never worn with the tag still on, and I am happy that this time is helping a lot of people to realise that it is not about the trends, but about the personal style and pieces that make you feel good.
Here are a few styling ideas that will be helpful to you this spring that focus not on trends, but on the enduring style principles of monochromatic looks, tailored pieces, and oversized silhouettes.
Whether from a desire for simplicity or while you are trying to figure out your style, a monochrome outfit will work in every situation.
Choose one tailored piece in your outfit: either the trousers or a blazer, and you will definitely be stylish from day into night.
Playing with volumes will forever be a favourite part of styling for me. Sportmax, Isabel Marant and Louis Vuitton have showcased styling ideas on how to achieve the look in their ready-to-wear SS21 collections and I’ve gathered a few others to share with you as well.
