HOW TO | Challenge Your Wardrobe Habits

It’s incredibly easy to get stuck in a wardrobe rut, always reaching for the same pieces and trusty outfit combinations. But when it comes to your wardrobe habits, say goodbye to boring this season with these tips for challenging the norm.

Stark Contrast:

Whether it is with textures or colours, pairing contrasting pieces is this season’s new alternative to tonal dressing. From stark white jeans worn with black jackets and tees to textured woollen knits layered with cotton blazers, pair opposing pieces together to create a modern look that oozes sartorial cool.

Wear Joggers:

Occasionally fashion trends make a nod towards comfort and this season, the pant style to try is the jogger. And we’re not talking active-wear, but rather slick chinos, denim and even fleece styles. To nail the look, scrunch up the cuffs and wear back with sneakers. Layer your top half with anything from a print shirt to a sweater and puffer vest.

Experiment with Layers:

You know how to layer a jumper over a shirt or tee, but this season longer lengths make for a cool styling statement. Look for long line tees and basic sweats with hemlines that sit well below your hips but no longer than mid-thigh. Layer with your regular jackets and tops.

Get your Ankles Out:

If you are looking for an easy way to update your look, it’s all about the ankles this season. Channel your inner European by going sans socks with a cool pair of sneakers and cuff your pants to expose your ankle. Keep your cuffs neat but not too flat – they should look effortless – and folding upwards twice should do the trick. This will work on everything from chinos to jeans, and will instantly up your cool factor.
