Goodbye 2018 hello 2019...

Its done. Christmas, twixtmas and the end of the year have all passed and we’re feeling fresh and ready to start anew! Whether you’re busy making resolutions or deciding to start the year by giving yourself a break, this will always be a time of reflection and looking forward to things to come.

We always have that “back to school” feeling come January 2nd but starting the year in style always gives us the confidence required when striding back into the office. We’ve looked back at the 2018 trends and done the work for you on what to invest in now to help make your first purchase of the year a smart one that will last you through to spring.


    The leisure trend isn’t going anywhere fast so investing in a fresh pair of trainers is as smart a decision as you can make right now. Keep your style simple and classic but think about the details and choose something that will add interest to your outfit.

    Wildside add a hint to the leopard print and metallic trends in this all new colourway and for the boys? For menswear Park Run with the new gum sole is our new take on our cult sneaker style that you’ll wear and wear until you need a new pair or why not go for a woven version that will take you through to the summer months?!

    Croc is hot

    When it comes to bags croc print is the finish du jour – we cant get enough! From bucket bags to cross-body’s and the all new Crocket pouch – croc is where it’s at if you’re looking for a new bag to start the year.

    Go bold

    When it comes to the seasons hottest hues the general consensus is focus less on print more on pop! Your spring seasonal wardrobe will be a beautiful base of luxe neutrals but your new season standout is a real pop of colour in the form of yellow, red or perhaps a flash of neon. You can always combine both as seen on the bright yellow snake print Mid West – a real seasonal allrounder. Whether you love print, full on colour or just a flash this trend is about standing out so choose something that will pop from the rest of your outfit. And of course…the ever chic leopard print is here to stay.

    Sneaker soles

    Comfort is king with this simple menswear trend. Classic styles have been adapted with sneaker soles to provide the ultimate hybrids with an added edge. From hiking boot to brogue there is an adaption to suit your everyday style. Stride into the new year in comfort! We’re particularly keen on the Password brogue.

    Western inspiration

    We’ve mentioned the trend for western boots before and this trans-seasonal style is one you can buy now but plan to wear all season right through to the end of summer. There are so many ways you can work this trend and there is an option whatever your style might be but we recommend going bold with one of the latest styles to hit down. Check out Go West in luxe natural or navy snake or Wild West in the ultimate studded camo print.
