The world is your playground this winter, so wrap yourself in big florals, bold checks and polka dots and embrace the chill.

COUCH SURFER

Give your ditsy, bitsy flower prints a time-out and try this season’s gutsy new couch florals. This particular iteration of eclecticism takes the essence of your nan’s two-seater and works it with on-trend checks for contrast.

CITY SLICKER

Listen up, folks: refined country-chic is where it’s at this season. Wear your jacket cropped, your trousers wide, and a bum bag across the chest, leaving you hands-free to tackle the asphalt terrain.

WESTWORLD

Second-skin boots and a cinched waist create a modern Western silhouette for the urban cowgirl within. Layer a patterned dress underneath to blend genres, then finish with a statement bag.

SPOTIFIED

Take polka dots beyond their retro ’50s vibe and into 2018. Choose graphic black and white, then add a burst of colour by way of gem-toned suede to bring the vintage-inspired pattern to life.
