Anything worn in high school and college seems to have returned to the fashion scene. Sweater vests have re-emerged as a standby for fashionistas everywhere. The origins of the sweater vest date back to the 1880s, but they’ve experienced popularity surges over the decades. In their most functional sense, these knits are ideal for layering in the winter or snuggling up in at home.

Here’s how you can style your sweater vests for a classic yet chic look:

Pair an oversized sweater vest with a white button down as seen on Deepika Padukone. You can wear it with straight leather pants and some high heels to complete the look.

Pair a form-fitting ribbed sweater vest with a detailing to the waistline as seen on Victoria Beckham. She styled the vest with a frilly collared blouse, slim fit trousers, high heels and a clutch.

Cropped fitted sweater vests with roll neck —- Kate Middleton combined her sleeveless knitted piece with a minimalist outfit consisting of a white blouse and gray wide-leg pleated pants. She kept the look preppy with small pearl earrings and plaid pumps.

The hottest trends for this fall and winter seasons is the cropped jackets be it in any style or texture as bringing an unexpected twist to a classic clothing piece will turn heads this winter season!

Many designers are sticking to the early ’90s era as their inspiration for this year, many clothing pieces are coming back for another moment in the spotlight. One of these pieces is the cropped jacket.

Style them with flared jeans, pants, straight pants & mini skirts!

Designers are rethinking this classic as it has become a major 2018 trend. Get a silk scarf that you can use in multiple ways, including as a a bag strap or even as a nontraditional ankle strap!

This season’s totes are well quite super-sized, which I’m not complaining about. They’re perfect for travel and for the woman who’s always on the go.

Opt for hands-free with all the fanny packs and necklace pouchettes. Best for men and women who are always doing something. Some are too small to even fit your cards but other can fit the necessities.

Designers have spared no expense when it comes to jewellery. Let’s just say right now bigger = better. With floor scraping earrings and gigantic necklaces, this trend calls for confidence and unapologetic boldness.

Ditch your phone and keep your hands warm. At least that’s what designers are hoping for. Gloves are available in all different colours and lengths but for those who are glued to their phones, Chanel is selling fingerless ones similar to  those Karl Lagerfeld alway wears.

Chunky and ornate cuffs are stylish for many reasons, one being they look like a work of art. Wearable art is on trend in the fashion industry. They’re an easy way of incorporating jewel tones and exotic motifs into otherwise basic looks.

A simple modification on a tried and true accessory that looks radically original. Elegant, there’s something decisive of this look. The long and dangling varieties sweep the collarbone and create a romantic asymmetry.

Leopard print accessories have been gaining popularity. This might not be everyone’s favourite print but opt for a smaller accessory in this print and test it out.

An updated and industrial spin on the classic belt! Chunky hardware and straps give a belt an extra dimension of texture and infuse it with an urbane sensibility. It can transform any look like the classic turtleneck and jeans combo and endow a simple outfit with an upscale mood.

Both a necessity of life and our guilty pleasure, shoes can make or break an outfit. Here is a list of the biggest shoe trends this year as exhibited on the latest runway shows.

Mules — These pointy-toe high heeled slides are on all the most stylish feet these days, including those of the high priestess of fashion, Victoria Beckham.

Phillip Lim

Slingbacks — Super comfy, yet dressed up looking at the same time, slingbacks should be a perennial in your closet. Reminiscent of the 80s, modern iteration includes block as well as kitten heels. The colours run from good ol’ black to pretty pastels.


Ugly sneakers — Aka Dad sneakers are everywhere this season. They’re big and bulky but give you height and are comfortable to boot. The trend started by Balenciaga can now be found at Zara.

Malone Souliers

Kitten heels — Aah the comfort of having a low heel that gives you an elegant high heel gait without the teetering! Going with formal attire to a daytime look, these versatile ladylike shoes are sheer bliss.


Clear Shoes — PVC, acrylic, clear vinyl who knew high fashion was headed towards plastic. After Kim K-West started sported her Yeezy sandals a few seasons back bringing them into fashion, last year Chanel took the trend to another level with its lucite boot, worth a pretty penny. Now clear shoes come in a whole lot of variations and price points.


Curvy Shoes — Starting with the YSL shaped heel, this trend is now moving towards curvy heels. It’s more interesting than your basic, straight heel.



Cowboy Boots — Kick up some dust in a pair. They’ve recently been spotted on several street style stars at various Western Fashion Weeks. You too can follow the trend in the F/W season by mixing cowboy boots with feminine dresses and skirts.

Michael Kors

All white — The industry’s penchant for white shoes continues. With this year’s deadly summer heat, there are plenty of chic, Tipp-Ex white sandals on offer. One particularly desirable pair was introduced by Michael Kors, while another great super comfy shoe is a super white wedge by Gucci.


Embellishments — Maximalistic is the name of the game right now, especially with Dolce & Gabbana’s embellished shoes. This trend can be easily DIY-ed. Glitzy shoes can add pizzaz to a masculine-looking suit and even spruce up your everyday jeans and t-shirt.
