PUFF-SLEEVE GLORY

Puff sleeves are definitely not new – in fact the fashion was born during the Rennaisance and also featured in Edwardian times, helping women accentuate the smallness of their waist by widening the shoulder-arm area. We saw them turn up in the ‘80s (think Dynasty) and now they’re back with a vengeance. So puff your arms out with pride And enjoy the ride.

Tassles, fringe and shedded layers, whether reminiscent of Westerns or 20s flapper glamour, are back in a big, often exaggerated way. Whether the fringe is on your skirt, shirt, jacket or boots, it’s in this winter.

GIRLS WILL BE BOYS

In a gender-adventurous age, it’s not surprising that women are being encouraged to play with masculine fashion elements in their everyday style. The trend of suits, ties, masculine shirts and blazers tempt ladies to pilfer their partner’s wardrobe for key items – or just buy their own.

Perhaps as a way of countering this uncertain year, designers have dug out the gold materials to bring some glimmer and shine into our lives. Dresses, jackets, skirts and accessories all welcome, but remember, not everything that glitters is gold!

CHECKS PLEASE

Checks, tartans, ginghams and squares are all part of the fashion formula this winter, whether you go for country tablecloth check shirts, tweeds or Scottish highlands kilts. Ironically, the challenge is to never let the checks make you look square, by contrasting them with other accessories and materials that offer a distinct sense of 2020 cool.
