Dazzling diamantes and floor-skimming metallics traditionally reserved for evening attire have been liberated from their after-hour confines and are sweeping into sartorial consciousness as appropriate attire for, well… anytime!

Cut loose in a suitably shimmery midi, step into the limelight with a sequined blazer or bedazzle your tee-and-jeans combo with the sparkliest of accessories.

ASOS SEQUIN MIDI SKIRT

Minimalism may have dominated on the catwalks for the past decade, with muted colours and shapeless silhouettes, but ‘70s-inspired DESIGNS have trickled down from high-fashion and the last couple of seasons have seen a resurgence of high-octane glamour, glitter, sequins and feathers.

In the trenches


A new decade may call for reimagining the classics, but some things need little updating.

BRAVE + TRUE SAFARI TRENCH.

When it comes to the trench, we’ll never say no to the classic cut, but reimagined iterations have been trickling in for the last few seasons, as the darlings of the design world work hard to ensure it maintains a modern edge.

This year trench coats are coming through in unique materials – including silk, organza and leather. It’s not just the materials that are getting a revamp, with the trusty trench also being paired in unique ways, such as the popular dress and trench combo.

Structured check trench coats make the perfect addition to your transeasonal wardrobe, so you can turn heads come rain or shine.

MORRISON EMMANUELLE TRENCH

It pairs well with a white tee and wide-leg blue jeans, or buttoned and wrapped up with a pair of straight-leg trousers and heels.

If we’re seeing trench coats made of organza and covered in checks, it’ll come as no surprise that we’re also getting clever with colour.

There’s nothing quite like colour to brighten up a chilly day and now we’re giving our trench coats the same treatment.

Meanwhile the classic double-breasted military trench makes its welcome return, with its timeless and universally flattering silhouette.

In 2020 however, it might be time to swap out the soft military trench for a crisp cotton iteration featuring a strong lapel, wide belt and sharp, interesting details.


 

Jack-et of all trades


It’s time trade in those cute cardigans for some heavy-duty winter warmers – we’re talking about jackets and coats. Metropol gets the lowdown on all of the latest jackets we’re seeing coming through in fashion.

 

TRELISE COOPER MAKE MY HEART BEAT COAT

 

TIME TO TAN: Gone are the days of minimal layers and getting a tan… winter is the season to wear tan. The Cocoon Jacket from Ketz-ke is a stylish option that is super soft and snuggly on the inside and sophisticated on the outside.

LET THERE BE LEATHER: The leather jacket is a statement piece that has reigned supreme for decades. Change it up by opting for a non-traditional colour like red or blue. There are even vegan leather options on the market or just go for a faux.

LONGLINE, HERE FOR THE LONGRUN: The longline winter coat is a must-have for the 2020 cold season. With coats that go down to or past your knees, you won’t be feeling that winter chill creeping up your back. Button it up or leave it loose, either way will bring elegance to your closet.

TICK FOR TRENCH: If you find the right one, a trench coat can be a beloved wardrobe piece for years to come, after all, this is a classic that never seems to go out of fashion. The popular double-breasted silhouette is strong transitional piece which will take you through winter and into spring and summer. In 2020, we’re seeing arty detailing, like leather panelling, ruffled bodices, open slit sleeves and double lapels.


 

Rinse & repeat


Like anything in life, a strong wardrobe is built from good foundations; the basics of strong, affordable pieces that we wear on rotation and whose look we can adjust easily with trending accessories. We check out the mainstays of the fashion game.

 

 

White tee: This is a classic – an item that you can truly wear with almost anything. Dress it up or dress it down, whichever you choose will look great. There’s also no worry of colour clashes because it pairs with everything well!

Denim jacket: Combine this with the above two suggestions and you’ve got a failsafe outfit. This type of jacket works well over a short or long sleeve shirt, a dress or even a sweater (the jacket might have to be oversized if you’re doing the latter).

Little black dress: If your ‘little black dress’ is referring to the one you haven’t worn since high school, it’s time to grab your purse. There should only be a few garments in your wardrobe waiting for a rainy day and this isn’t one of them. Like the denim jacket, it can be worn for any occasion, accompanied by the correct accessories of course.

Black jeans: A good pair of these can outlast the years. Wear them to work, brunch, clubbing or around the house – they’re perfect for any occasion. Just throw on a belt to add some serious style.

Black boots: We know we go on all the time about loafers and how amazing they are. But if they’re the belle of the ball when it comes to dressy shoes, then black boots take the cake as the foundational staple of shoes.

The easy jeans: Jeans won’t ever go out of style, so having more than one pair will never be a bad idea, especially when they are a slouchy, high-waist, straight leg fit. Finish them off with a pair of killer heels or some dad sneakers and you’ve got two completely different looks!
