bubble skirts

A new skirt silhouette is on the rise, far from the a-line mini skirts that have been long in trend. Known as the Bubble Skirt, it is exactly that 🫧 With a folded hem, it puffs out accentuating curves, and adding a unique silhouette to any outfit.

On the streets of Seoul, they've been spotted as mini's, maxi's and worn in all different styles - streetwear, sporty, or adding a feminine touch. This skirt style will totally level up even the most minimal-looking outfits.

Under Glasson’s Le Vacances collection, you’ll find their take on Bubble Skirt in three colours. They also offer it with a co-ord; completing the styling for you 🙌🏻 All can be styled casually or one for your date-nights, and if you really want to take it up a notch, try the Bubble Hem Dress 🍸🖤

coquette details

These days, it’s all about the fine details. Coquette is in, adding daintiness to EVERYTHING 🎀 Spot micro-floral prints, and ribbons throughout all pieces...

Don’t forget about the shoes - they too can totally change up an outfit! Instead of opting for sneakers, why not go for a pair of ballet flats, slickback-style flats, or Mary Janes. These are the shoe trends of the season! 

Shop the Trend

You can tell the Coquette trend is everywhere with how many different offerings to choose from - casual tops, evening blouses, or even a loungewear set. If you can't lose your edgy street style, choose a ribbon graphic, like this sweater - made for F/W!

The best place for dainty shoe styles are at Charles & Keith (they’ve also got the cutest bags too 👛) These are my personal favourite finds - Bow Ballet Flats, Mary Jane Flats and Chain Link Flats.

the it-girl bags

Shoulder bags, in particular, a rectangular shape is THE accessory to complete an outfit. Keep all your essentials in this 90’s inspired style and stay on top of trends. If you want to be ✨ extra ✨, opt for the colour, metallic silver!

Texture is everything in fashion too! With the iconic COS quilt bags that quickly became a hot trend, more brands are making their own, offering a rainbow of colours.

You can actually find all the it-girl bag trends at ITNO Accessories (Platypus-exclusive). ITNO Accessories offers the rectangle shoulder bags, puffy bags AND they even come in silver 🩶 Their styles remind me of exactly what the Korean IT-girls are carrying around! And the best part? All at affordable prices 💸

pops of red

The colour in style? RED 🍓 It’s no doubt a vivid colour that can be hard to pull off, but you can always start out with pops of red. The easiest way are through accessories; the shoes and bags.

Pair the reds with white, cream, black and grey! Or an upgrade from these minimal colours... navy 💙  Underrated but ALWAYS a colour combo that will have you staying on top of trends!

To start adding pops of red to your wardrobe, take a trip to Zara; they've got a few red bags in-store - Gathered Shoulder Bag and Minimalist Shoulder Bag. When it comes to shoes, I instantly think of the Adidas Gazelles, a sneaker style that is everywhere! With so many colours to choose from, of course, there’s a red pair too.

Red cardigans are a hot statement piece too! A classic button up knit cardigan like this one can do no wrong when styled minimalistically with a pair of dark-washed jeans - casual but chic! And if you’re feeling the chill this winter, add cosiness with Princess Polly's red scarf.
