Tone-on-tone purple


As the Pantone Colour of the Year states, ultraviolet is going to be huge in 2018 (we show you how to rock the colour here). Experiment with varying tones and shades of purple just as how the street style stars are doing it.

Shop the trend: Versace vintage silk shirt, $923 and Giamba hooded coat, $922

Play with deeper tones of purple versus lighter lilacs for a good contrast when it comes to tone-on-tone dressing. Don’t forget to mix and match different textures and fabrics as well. Pair this hooded coat with a silk draped waterfall shirt for office-ready look.

Get your shine on and cop a glossy vinyl coat for extra style points. You can also integrate this hyper-shine trend to your everyday closet by trying patent trousers and PVC sock boots.

Shop the trend: Helmut Lang patent trench coat, $1,923

This black trench is mid-length with a classic collar and a double-breasted front. We’re a fan of the silver eyelet waist belt which can be switched around to match with other outfits.

Coloured plaid

Judging from the A/W ’18 presentations we’ve seen so far, saturated plaid is cued to be one of the biggest trends next season. Get in on the trend early with this laminated neon pink trench.

Shop the trend: Burberry gabardine cotton-blend trench coat, $2,461

This coat features an iteration of the iconic House check in laminated garbadine and neon pink rendering. Tailored to a classic double-breasted silhouette, we think this coat could also double as a raincoat (how nifty!) with its laminated outlayer.
