How to Have a Fashion Moment This Season

“What’s my style is not your style, and I don’t see how you can define it,” the inimitable Iris Apfel once said. “It’s something that expresses who you are in your own way.”

If you do just one thing as we head into this new fashion season, let it be that you adopt Iris Apfel’s defiant attitude as your own. Take your inspiration from the fashion week runways, if that’s what you want to do. Channel your favourite street style star, if that’s what tickles your fancy. Be as fiercely independent as Saoirse Ronan’s pink-haired Lady Bird. Have a big fashion moment, or don’t. Just do you, in the best way possible.

With that in mind, here are the bold and beautiful fashion moments we’re using to spark our inspiration, imagination and creativity this season.

Try the bold hues of Gen Z Yellow.

A scroll through your Instagram feed will prove millennial pink isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean you can’t prep for the colour revolution. The team at Man Repeller have identified a new hue that is kicking ass and taking names in 2018. They call it Gen Z Yellow, and it ranges in shade from buttercream to marigold. Our take? Yellow is unapologetically fun. No millennial pink, no problem.

Pick up some feminist fashion.

Speaking of unapologetic, with International Women’s Day being celebrated on March 8, 2018, there’s no better time to wear your feminist heart on your sleeve. Or your shirt, quite literally. This year, the theme is “Time Is Now,” and it’s all about celebrating the activists who are working “relentlessly to claim women’s rights.” So, pick up some feminist fashion, and then join the conversation or a local event. Playing your part is always in fashion.

Stick with hoop earrings.

Swipe right on hoop earrings, because with hoops, you’ll find there’s a little something for everyone. Silver or gold, big or small, thin or thick – the options are endless. Plus, hoops transcend seasons and trends. The pair you buy today can take you from work to the gym to a party. You’ll still be wearing them two, five, ten years from now. And you’ll always be coming up with new ways to wear your hoops, thanks to their timeless aesthetic.

Add sportswear into the mix.

They say too much of a good thing is never enough, which might explain why sportswear is still having a moment in the style spotlight. For us, though, sportswear is less about logo-embellished tracksuits and more about fusing function with fashion. Sneakers, naturally, fit the bill. Backpacks? Add them to the list. And while you’re at it, throw on some luxe joggers, an easy-breezy tank top and a slick anorak jacket, and you’re après-gym ready.

Take your cues from this muse: Lady Bird.

If you haven’t seen Lady Bird yet, get yourself to a theatre, stat. Only then will you be able to truly appreciate the spunky attitude of the title character, played by Saoirse Ronan. Lady Bird is a teenager trying to find herself, which means she’s trying new looks to figure out what works – whether that is the aforementioned pink hair, a peace-sign choker, or a prom dress. Taking your style cues from Lady Bird doesn’t mean you have to imitate our pink-haired heroine. On the contrary. Instead, it’s about experimenting with what you love, not what’s in fashion or in the moment.
