Time to start afresh? Ease into 2019 with five new-in daywear looks for January, hand-picked for off-duty days and long, lazy weekends spent recovering from the last month’s festivities. Expect key knits in neutral palettes, wear-with-everything denim and the coats that’ll see you right through till spring.
1. Cool Tones
Updating your everyday wardrobe doesn’t come easier than this. Comprising a grey cowl-neck knit and smart-casual peg leg trousers in classic navy, this relaxed duo makes a welcome addition to any style line-up, with cool white trainers and a baker boy hat adding the fashion flourishes. Heading outside? Stay warm in a blue wool-blend coat.
2. Shirt Tales
High on impact, low on effort: the shirt dress offers a step up from everyday jeans-and-jumper combinations without compromising on comfort. Designed with an on-trend gingham print and coloured in a bold berry shade, this tie-front midi is effective as it is easy to wear – we like it best with a cable-knit cardigan and tan accessories.
3. Colour Block
How to counteract the downcast days of January? Fill it with colour. Spliced with stripes of yellow, pink, grey, oatmeal and blue, this feel-good knit (matching scarf available) offers an instant mood boost, as well as freshening up your favourite pair of jeans. Finish with trainers for the perfect weekend look.
4. Soft Touch
As the cold takes hold, we’re leaning towards luxe knits to seal out the elements. Offering an alternative to the darker designs in our wardrobe, spring-evoking pastels are catching our eye this season, from blush-toned jumper dresses to cosy cardigans in cool grey. Layer together and style with opaque tights and ankle boots for effortless chic.
5. New Neutrals
Palate-cleansing neutrals regain their relevance as we move on from the glamour and grandeur of the past season, evoking a fresher feel in your day-to-day wardrobe. Nude-hued coats worn with roll-neck knits in ivory make for a modern pairing on cold winter days, their soft, muted hues elevated with tan leather ankle boots. Wear with blue denim or, for a new-season update, swap skinnies for a pair of cord trousers in a rich burgundy hue.
