A new year can only mean one thing: a brand new wardrobe!

If you’ve still got some Christmas money to splurge, we’ve got you covered when looking for new trends to kick off the season.

This week, we headed to Topshop in St Stephen’s, where the lovely Daisy May talked us through her top picks and favourite outfits from their new range.

“At the moment, the style is very floaty and floral, but we like to add harder details like chunky boots or a leather jacket to complete the look,” Daisy explains as she picks out her top pieces.

“A lot of fashion at the moment is also inspired by the past, particularly the 80s, 90s and even the 60s.”

With this in mind, we move to the fitting room to find out what she has put together.

OUTFIT1

The first outfit (above) is quite an everyday look, that can either be dressed up with a pair of heels or down with an oversized jacket.

“A key colour this season is red: it’s still festive, yet vibrant enough for the new year,” says Daisy. “Meanwhile, embroidery detailing is very on trend right now, it seems to be all about the denim.”

Coat £79 / Top £22 / Skirt £35 / Boots £75

OUTFIT2

A cosy jumper tucked into a mini skirt paired with a warm jacket makes this outfit great for January’s changeable weather.

“The tartan skirt definitely screams Clueless,” says Daisy in reference to the 90s chick flick.

“Mustard has been a popular colour for quite a while now, and it looks like it’s here to stay.”

Jacket £85 / Jumper £37 / Skirt £36 / Boots £75

OUTFIT3

A great way to mix and match your wardrobe to create something new is to layer. Daisy pulls off this sixties-style pinafore dress with a modern floral blouse and chunky heels.

“Here, I’m mixing spring prints with a block of colour.”

“This is a perfect example of grunge meets girly,” Daisy smiles as she twirls around in a gorgeous floaty number.

“By adding a biker jacket and boots to a flared tea dress, you can really play down the pretty and add a bit of edge.”

Another era that seems to be making a comeback is the 70s. It may sometimes be remembered as the decade that fashion forgot, but Daisy looks gorgeous here in her flared-sleeved shirt.

“Bright colours are definitely in right now, and again, embroidery seems to be a huge deal.”

To complete the outfit, Daisy keeps it simple with some nude boots.

OUTFIT6

If you’re after a smarter outfit, ditch the jeans and opt for a pair of high-waisted cigarette pants.

“Smart trousers aren’t just for the office,” Daisy advises. “They can look great for a chic everyday look.”

She dresses them down with a pair of studded boots but keeps it on trend with a floral blouse.

OUTFIT7

This season it’s all about the details, as the ensemble above demonstrates.

“The tassels on these jeans are enough to dress up any plain T-shirt, whilst I think the frills and neck tie on the blouse are quite Edwardian.”

Blouse £39 / Jeans £46 / Boots £75

Our final outfit is Daisy’s favourite: “I recently bought this dress and these boots and often wear them together.”

Delicate vintage florals and statement footwear definitely seems to be the current trend.

“This outfit incorporates key colours and flared sleeves, plus you can add some edge with a pair of knee-high boots.”

Dress £49 / Boots £69
