Trends of the week

Puffer Jackets

We all need a coat that is sure to keep us warm as we brave Storm Barra this week but how far do we go with an oversized jacket without it looking like we’re wrapped in a duvet. Well, earlier this week, Billie Eilish stepped onto the red carpet in Los Angeles for the 2021 Variety Hitmakers Brunch wearing a burgundy floor-length puffer jacket.  Lucy and Abigail discuss their thoughts on puffer jackets and whether the casual coat option can be made stylish.

 

The pair discuss how obsessed they are with the sold-out North Face Borg coat (shown above) and how temped they are by the dupe that is available online at H&M men’s £34.99.

Y2K

The rise of Y2K trends is a direct reflection of the world’s growing interest in vintage fashion, that only being elevated by TikTok where we’ve seen Gen Z styling together outfits from the early 2000s. Think Paris Hilton in the Simple Life and all your favourite rom-com’s we all grew up watching, these trends are becoming more popular as we head in 2022.

Double denim is no longer a fashion crime and thanks to Blumarine who brought denim butterfly crop tops to their Spring/Summer 2022 runway as well as extreme mini skirts. The collection is made for a Barbie dream world or to be seen on the likes of Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa.

What do you think? Is the Y2K trend here to stay?

Ski-wear 

If Molly-Mae wears it then we have to wear it, right? We are all obsessed with Pretty Little Thing’s Creative Director Molly-Mae Hague and her new ski collection is leaving Abigail and Lucy undecided whether we can actually wear the pieces day-to-day and not just when hitting the slopes.
