We are all living in exceptional times and our social calendars look different than they normally would. The good news is that clothes and accessories are a great way to express yourself and lift your mood. You don’t even need to wait for spring to freshen up your look. Here is a round-up of the best fashion style trends to incorporate from right this minute onwards.

Pins and Brooches- Lady Gaga showed off an incredible gold dove-shaped brooch at the Presidential inauguration ceremony during her performance. Although her outfit was quite conservative by her standards (she once wore a dress made entirely of meat), the pin was eye-catching and fashion style people are already trying to copy it. Brooches are not just for women, lapel pins are a great accessory for men’s coat lapels. Louis Vuitton’s show also included menswear with oversized lapel pins.

Market totes- You can carry your groceries home in style for this season and onwards. Straw, woven market bags and their crocheted cotton counterparts are big news for spring. Since your grocery store might be the runway for your fashion display at the moment, something that suits the occasion is the ideal accessory to win style points. Look for options in tan, brown and white.

Tailored coats- A structured piece of outerwear is your best friend for chilly spring walks and the last winter cold snaps. You could be wearing almost anything underneath a beautifully cut trench coat or an oversized Crombie. They make women seem petite and shapely and men look dashing. One well-chosen statement coat can do more for the way you look than any other garment. You can even just make the statement that you want to be sublimely comfortable with an on-trend knee-length asymmetric puffer coat or a cosy teddy bear shearling jacket.

Fashion does not have to hibernate, even if you feel like it.
