This January, take a fresh start to the new season with four palette-cleansing essentials. From the structural shirt to the hi-gloss jean, we’ve revived the classics for an elevated look that’s less about trends, and more about versatile staples to mix and match. Here, Topshop Creative Director and Vogue stylist, Kate Phelan, introduces the key pieces to invest in now.
"Stronger, tougher looks are key, with a focus on fabrications like vinyl and plastic. Pieces like the hi-gloss jeans have a strong graphic element."
“A classic lightweight coat is essential. It is the best investment you could ever make. And this season? The ultra-classic trench looks right again.”
“There’s lots of emphasis on sleeves – sleeve detailing, sleeve volume – you’ll start to see that everywhere. The gingham-oversized shirts really stand out.”
“Sportwear has evolved into something much softer, embracing pastel palettes and feminine details”
