Revitalising and symbolic of new beginnings, Pantone has rightfully chosen Greenery as the Colour of the Year 2017. A nod to nature and the upcoming spring season, Greenery is a neutral palette suitable for both men and women, and provides a sense of calm in the chaos of contemporary life.

Stay tuned for tips on how to incorporate green in your regular wardrobe.

 

ARTY PRINTS

Prints and patterns inspired by art (think paintings or a particular artist’s work) were seen in runways throughout last year. Many brands such as Valentino, Céline and others came out with stunning arty prints and showed us how to brighten our wardrobes. Good for us, art references are here to stay.

Spring is the season of showing skin and we love us some strappy shoes! These can go from classic to full-on glamour, depending on how you style them. Nothing shows off your ankles and outfit like a good-looking pair of strappy heels.

 

CRIMPED HAIR

The 90s are no stranger to trend-making and the crimped hairstyle is no different. A throwback to a raging obsession of that era, crimped brings back the girl-next-door with a modern twist. Easy to pull off, the crimped hairstyle can be adapted to any number of occasions and outfits.

 

LYN SLATER: PROFESSOR, BLOGGER & STYLE ICON

63-year-old Lyn Slater was a professor at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service when she was ‘accidentally’ discovered by photographers outside Lincoln Center in a Yohji Yamamoto suit and Chanel bag. She says that fashion was never a choice but rather an integral part of her personality throughout her early and professional life. People would often mistake her for a fashion blogger and she started giving it some serious thought. Accidental Icon was born, as a result and the rest is history.
