FIVE TRENDS YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW

Fashion

31 July 2018

Sans Pareil went along to New Zealand’s biggest shopping centre Sylvia Park, to bring you five of the biggest trends this season.

1 | SOMETHING SPORTY

You thought Sports Luxe was dead? Nope. It’s here for another season and this time it’s got designers creating items especially for it. Which is awesome, who doesn’t love when comfort comes into fashion? So, time to get your Sporty Spice on and pick up some fun sporty pieces that are too cute just for the gym. If you’ve got a budget there are some great pieces in Sterling Women, like this cute Nike Crop. Otherwise, if your budget is smaller –  Factorie have done a collaboration with FILA and they have produced some very cute items. See below.

2 | AN OVERSIZED COAT

If you do decide to get that cute FILA top, you’re gonna need something warm to shelter you from the winter weather. Keeping with comfort, this season’s must-have is an oversized, snuggly coat. I’m especially loving these ones below, and they have colour palettes which will go with almost any palette. Glassons is always great for getting on trend staples – we’re lovin’ the faux shag fur, and this ZARA 70s-inspired shearling coat will also keep the coldest weather at bay. 

3 | SNEAKERS

Yes, we’ve already talked sportswear but this trend is so big and EVERYWHERE it needs its own section. Sneakers have been popular for a while now,  and have had every designer label from Balenciaga to Dior releasing their own version. And why not? Sneakers are the perfect staple to any wardrobe – and bonus points they actually support your feet while you’re running around. Woohoo! Speaking of Balenciaga kicks, if $1000 is a bit steep for you to pay for a pair of their iconic chunky Triple S Sneaker, then these alternatives are very similar and very cute. You can find these also in Sterling Woman, and other great sneakers from Converse, Skechers and Platypus

 

4 | STATEMENT TROUSERS

You may have noticed this trend in one form or another, because absolutely everywhere is doing it. This winter is all about a statement pant. Check out some of my fave picks below. I love the comfortable chic pants at ZARA, high-waisted crops at Supré, and the statement stripe at Glassons

5 | STATEMENT SLIP-ONS

It all started when Gucci let drop a VERY stylish range of slip ons with uniquely stunning and often embroidered detail. The trend has (luckily) trickled down and there are some very gorgeous alternatives out there – like these Isabella Anselmi from Merchant 1948 | Overland. 

How dainty are these?!And if you really want to go bold there is a plethora of kawaii designs in ZARA right now. I love love love this pair on the left!

 

So there you have it! Five easy trends to bring your wardrobe into the current season, thanks to Sylvia Park.
