Finding Styles For All Ages
With spring just around the corner, it is the perfect time to do our due diligence and style up for it. It’s a glorious season which deserves to be welcomed with the fashion equivalent of a red carpet. The runway predictions for the spring and summer season have been truly inspired, and more importantly inclusive. Inclusivity is essential, because fashion should be accessible and relatable to men and women of all ages – as they say, ‘style at every age’.
To that end, we have done our part at bringing you the best possible suggestions for your spring wardrobe additions, so let’s bring a breath of fresh style air to everyone’s closets.
The millennial gals
When in your twenties, feel free to experiment. Feel free to incorporate different styles into a single outfit, mix and match various bold patterns and embrace trendy pieces. Pleated skirts are still going strong, but why not play with them and add a stylish graphic sweatshirt, even one with a hoodie. Fast fashion brands such as Zara have come out with a great selection of just these pieces, so make sure to add that pop of color – athleisure style.
The contrast between romantic and athletic will give you a relaxed yet polished vibe, and if you’re on the market for something incredibly trendy, there is no accessory that will work harder for you than a pair of white ankle boots. This is also a time to play with color-blocking, so definitely give this recurring trend a go.
The casual chic 30s
Women in their thirties have the ability to take the best of both worlds – mix trendy pieces with timeless ones and create on-trend looks which still exude a level of seriousness – an adult vibe, if you will. The checkered pattern has proven to be one of the most dominant ones this season, both on the runways and off.
An oversized double-breasted blazer is one of the best investments to make this spring. It’s both conservative and playful, and with a pair of dark straight-leg jeans, it can be the embodiment of both business casual, even more so if you throw a gorgeous bodysuit in a neutral hue into the mix. Bodysuits are incredibly useful as they can serve as that understated staple garment that allows you to add as many layers and colors as you want, and still look stylish. Classic pumps and a designer bag – a key investment in your 30s are highly recommended for that semi-serious and utmost chic look.
The classy 40s
We can’t help but notice that women, as they grow more mature, also tend to favor timeless pieces and begin to lean towards carefully curated fashion which often finds minimalism as the final stop. That’s why we could not be more thrilled that wide leg trousers in neutral hues as well as classic culottes are having such a massive comeback, particularly with fast fashion retailers. They can be worn with the chicest floral loafers or mules, classic heels in a contrasting color and even minimalist tennis shoes and still look stunning.
Now, one can either go with the old but new preppy style with a long white shirt and a crew sweater, or you can take an even chicer route and opt for a plethora of breezy blouses in neutral hues and top the looks off with long fitted blazers. The contrast in the length of the blazer and the culottes will give every look a stylish twist.
All the future moms
Thankfully, the days when all the styling options future moms had revolved around boxy, shapeless Mumu-like dresses. Now, most maternity jeans are more stylish than those ‘regular ones’ and it’s time to add a pop of color in the form of gorgeous long maternity tanks. Show that baby bump with pride, and the length of the top will do a great job at concealing the waist insert on the jeans, making you look flawless in turn. Mid block-heel suede ankle boots (even murky floral ones) can be a total outfit enhancer. Throw a stylish sweater or even a blanket shawl over, a chic tote in hand and you will be one stylish mom-to-be.
Boys will be boys
For all the fellas who still reference lines from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and want nothing more than to channel their movie heroes, we have great news – Hawaiian shirts are back. True, they might look a bit over the top on the runways, but you can simply go with a pair of jeans, and ‘stay in character’ with a pair of loafers instead.
For those of you who’ve outgrown this phase, it’s time to embrace suits, whether fitted or slightly slouchy and oversized. Of course, there is door number three, if you’re not feeling that neither novelty shirts nor suits are really representative of your style persona. Behind door number three hides the mighty athleisure which gives you the chance to rock tracksuits with blazers, sneakers with wide leg trousers and a white tee, old-school denim jackets. With athleisure, the world is your oyster.
The little ones
Finally, let’s not forget about babies and toddlers. There are entire departments and stores dedicated solely to making these little humans look as stylish and trendy as their parents. From retro dresses that will make your little girl look like a mini version of Audrey Hepburn, to checkered suits that will make the boys look like members of the royal family, there has never been such a great time to upgrade your little one’s wardrobe with a touch of chic instead of simple onesies and sweatshirts like now. If you intend to shine, you need to be coordinated with your beloved little ones, so make them look as sleek as you are.
