The Debrief: We've got your January shopping list sorted...
Starting out on a new season is always a bit like being a rabbit caught in the headlights. So many options to choose from, magazines pushing umpteen looks and a zillion catwalk shows and trends to try and decipher. Don't freak out - we spoke to the major players on the high street to see which key item they reckon you should buy for SS15. Buy one of each, and you're pretty much set for the season.
Here are the big boys for Spring...
Culottes From Urban Outfitters
'Culottes are key for ss2015, but they're going to be in more interesting fabrics than we've seen before. Check out our new denim pair from Light Before Dark.'
Flares From ASOS
'Flares are a must-have item as we are obsessed with all things 70’s! This is in honour of the late Ali Macgraw’s bohemian style - we love the signature 70’s glam going out look.'
A Denim Jacket from Topshop
'We are focusing on denim, with key new shapes and styles - it’s all about authentic denim fabrics, washes and styling, and offering something more directional.'
A Sci-fi Parka from COS
'There’s an air of sportiness at COS for s/s15. This voluminous, translucent parka parka feels like a cloud and can be worn at two lengths.'
Psychadelic Co-ords from French Connection
Coat, £175, skirt, £85
‘Coordinates will be a wardrobe essential this season and we have the perfect statement set - a leopard moth print calf hair jacket and skirt.’
A Suede Dress from River Island
'Seventies is a huge trend for SS15 so we're really feeling super soft suede pieces. In particular, this chocolate brown dress that has a real retro vibe.'
Patchwork from & Other Stories
'One of the spring trends for & Other Stories is ‘American Dream’ - patchworks and fringes are two key elements. This top, reminiscent of American quilted blankets, is part of our nostalgic collection.'
