Early nights and drinking more water? We’re far more concerned with what 2015 means for our wardrobe resolutions. No. 01 Earn your fashion stripes with Valentino, Stella McCartney and Marni’s nouveau take on the classic print.
No. 02 Say ‘ahoy there’ to sailor-inspired accessories.
No.3 Check in with gingham and follow the yellow brick road all they way through to summer.
No.4 Refuse to be a wallflower. Keep botanicals big, bold and brash à la Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane.
No.5 Make it less about the artistic movements and more about arts and crafts.
No.6 Get stitching, as embroidery decorates some of the best pieces of the season.
No.7 Lighten up. Fashion’s frivolous side ain’t going away – as evidenced by Charlotte Olympia’s genius Piñata handbag.
No.8 Be first in line for your geometry lesson, with professor Roksanda Ilincic.
No.9 Take inspiration from your kitchen counter by marvelling at the marbling. Style cues can be found in the most unexpected places, you know.
No.10 If in doubt, there’s always monochrome.
No.11 Make a commitment to 1970s suiting. Ditch OTT fur and heavy-rimmed glasses for matching belted jackets and streamlined trousers. You have Derek Lam, Nicholas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton and Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen to thank.
No.12 Dare to flare.
No.13 Be serious about keeping warm. Shearling is the only acceptable way.
No.14 Embrace your inner hippy with a smorgasbord of dyeing techniques; tie-dye, dip-dye or splatter-dye.
No.15 2014 is a wrap, so take inspiration from that in the way you dress.
No.16 Hubble-bubble, toil and trouble, find some prints and wear them double.
No.17 Going dotty has never been a more judicious manoeuvre. From Kenzo to Versace, circles reigned supreme.
No.18 Denim, denim in the air, denim, denim everywhere. Reacquaint yourself with your BBF – blue best friend.
No.19 If the year starts off with a flop, make sure it’s of the hat variety.
No.20 Open your mind and expect the unexpected with classic pieces taking on modern guises.
No.21 Channel chilled-out vibes with boho’s epic resurgence.
No.22 Chase your dreams – or at the very least catch them.
No.23 Fall back in love with fringe.
No.24 Go XXL when it comes to jewellery. Bigger = better.
No.25 Break the rules. The only requirement? Confidence! That, and a wardrobe full of clashing prints.
No.26 Make love, not war. Unless, of course, we’re talking about your wardrobe, in which case cargo, khaki and army green should be your new uniform of choice.
No.27 Celebrate our wonderful country through Karl Lagerfeld’s witty perspective.
No.28 Practical purchases don’t have to be ugly – look after your spine with Gucci’s python backpack. Straps on both shoulders, please.
No.29 Master the art of peacocking with animal prints in eye-popping shades.
No.30 Get noticed in neon. It isn’t hard.
No.31 Show them who’s boss.
No.32 Pump up the peplum. You should be a professional by now.
No.33 Don’t underestimate specs appeal; add some classic frames to your repertoire.
No.34 Pack up your pencil skirt. It’s all about the happy medium, with Fendi, Gucci and Dsquared2 opting for calf-skimming, A-line styles.
No.35 Change your perspective. Undesirable weather? It’s a fashion opportunity, darling.
No.36 Let it slide, with this year’s most laid-back footwear.
No.37 Keep last year’s culottes on high rotation, channeling 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone by teaming them with flats.
No.38 Run circles round the rest in Balenciaga trainers. Hey, you can’t help it, can you?
No.39 Embrace the ‘athleisure’ trend, even if you have no intention of ever going to the gym… like ever.
No.40 Dive right into the swim trend without ever getting wet. Blow-dry? In tact, thank you.
