January dressing is tricky. It’s a fresh new year and most of us have made resolutions for our best future selves but then we open our wardrobe and it feels a little, well, blah.  

As firm advocates of slow fashion, buying timeless classics and not succumbing to the latest trends and being no stranger to tighter January budgets we love a little wardrobe re-organisation at this time of year, scroll down for ways you can bring out your timeless classics and style them up with a modern twist in a 2024 vibing way.


What are some of the fashion looks we're loving for 2024?

1. Fresh and interesting colour palettes - cobalt and mint are getting all the heart eyes here in the office. 

2. Lots of layers perfect for these 4 seasons in one day days we are getting at the moment. 

3. Chic suiting in airy fabrics

4. Plenty of stripes. 

Keep scrolling for all the street style inspiration you need to inspire your January wardrobe, whatever you have planned for the month ahead. 


Bright Trainers

2023 embraced colourful sneakers and they continue to be a style favourite for 2024. This year it's all about bright and cheerful in-your-face yellow.

Add an Unexpected pop of colour

Even the most paired back outfit can be made super interesting with a bright pop. Check Molly Blutstein’s choice of chocolate brown paired with scarlet. LOVE! and yes! incase you were wondering red is sticking around for 2024.

We love a fancy collar bejewelled... Peter Pan... or a bow... Show them off and watch them update your look in an instant.

 Patterned Tights

Patterned tights are the accessory to try. Wear them with a minidress or skirt and add loafers to get the preppy vibe.
