5 things to buy now

When it comes to 2019 trends, the key word is maximalism. Think conversation prints, colourful coats and supercharged silhouettes. These five things tap effortlessly into the new-year’s trend memo, and are super-savvy pieces to buy (and wear) now.


1. A Fresh Coat of Colour

The simplest shortcut to reinvigorate your wardrobe, a boldly hued coat will lift the spirits and drive away winter blues. Opt for single-breasted styles with the room to wear plenty of chunky knits beneath them.


2. Blazers of Glory

Blazers are big news. Try a double-breasted style, opt for tweed or even a bold colour or print. Keep yours relaxed by partnering with denim, for the perfect mix of casual with formal, or rock a suit this season – you could even try it with trainers.


3. Conversation Starters

When it comes to print this season, the kookier the better. Look closer at our Emma print and you’ll spot tiny monkeys amongst the design. Wear it head-to-toe with our dress, or tuck the shirt into this season’s over must-have: a pair of wide-leg trousers.


4. Far & Wide

After years on the straight and narrow, it’s time for skinny jeans to move over and make way for wide-leg silhouettes. Incredibly flattering to wear, balance the proportions of wide-leg trousers with a slimmer top.


5. Abstract Animal

Zebra and tiger join the menagerie of animal prints, with off-kilter colour palettes refreshing the trend for the new season. Wear yours top to toe or as a simple accent – a leopard-print blazer is a key way to buy into the trend.
