This seasons newest big trend is here and it’s a great one; versatility! It seems we’re all on the hunt for wardrobe pieces that are not only on trend but are versatile and can be used to achieve multiple looks with the same garment, able to be layered, dressed up and dressed down.
“Why the increased demand for versatility?” Glad you asked. The increasing consumer demand for sustainability in fashion, the increasing desire for value for money and getting the best out of your wardrobe. And after a long few years of being stuck inside and solely wearing lounge wear, we’re all bursting with excitement to start styling ourselves again - dressing for joy!
Some of our favourite on-trend pieces which are undeniably versatile include our Blue Moon sateen skirt and top, Boss pant and matching blazer, and Throwback Mini Smock. Keep reading for some styling ideas! Our Boss Pant and Boss Blazer are gorgeous worn together or separately. The Boss Pant is great for year-round wear, the perfect glamorous addition to your office wear, or worn casually on the weekend with an oversized tee or cute cami. Alternatively, dress these gorgeous pants up with a corset top! The matching, vibrant green Boss Blazer can similarly be worn at the office or on the weekend dressed down for an effortless casual look with your favourite denim jean and sneakers. Dress this dreamy jacket up with a black pleather pant, corset top, or for the daring ladies, simply a bralette underneath!
For special occasions and nights out, our Blue Moon sateen skirt can be worn as a set with the beautiful matching Blue Moon top. Separate these pieces and mix and match the skirt with another corset top such as our Lace Corset, Cowl Front Bustier, Tie Shoulder Bustier or Ballerina Corset. Alternatively, throw on an oversized white tee and some white sneakers and this sateen skirt is the perfect smart-casual daytime look. If you’re looking to separate the set and dress the top down, pair it with your favourite pair of denim jeans, black pleather pants or casual skirt. So many cute options!
Lastly, jump on the retro trend this autumn with our gorgeous Throwback Mini Smock! The flowy style is perfect for a range of body shapes and occasions. Wear the smock style casually with sandals or sneakers, and dress it up with a little pair of heels. The long sleeves and above-knee length are perfect for this autumn weather. Throw on an effortless denim jacket for cooler days, and even a pair of stockings and winter boots for a warmer winter look.
Earlier this month, the Privvy team had the opportunity to sit down for a style night with the wonderful stylist and personal shopper, Kirstyn Chapman. During the session, we took a deep dive into styling for different body shapes, incoming trends, styling multiple looks with the same garment, and taking items from day to night.
This autumn and winter, we are seeing an abundance of fabulous trends including retro patterns, ‘boss-lady’ attire, versatile pieces and joyful fashion so keep your eye out! With so many gorgeous options and versatile pieces, how will you choose to style them?
