Maximalism is making itself known at every runway in a major way, and it is encouraging people to be more daring with their street style choices.
The simplest way to add a little pizzazz to your look, without having to put in too much effort, is to layer up with something that stands out on its own. Thankfully all the jumpers hitting the runways are all about this.
Think bold patterns, fabrics and certainly don’t shy away from colour, and you will be right where you need to be to embrace this trend.
To ease your way into this trend, we suggest going for a Marni striped mohair-blend jumper. The striking royal blue shade with the horizontal stripe pattern, makes it a simple and easy way to embrace maximalist dressing.
For something a little more casual, and affordable, the ASOS Design oversized hoodie in orange, fit with graphic designs, achieves a great laid-back look.
Pair these jumpers with neutral shades, and your streetwear look will be reminiscent of the many numerous fashion week looks that have been flooding our socials.
When layering up for a more finer event, we suggest opting for a blazer that offers a little more than your usual black-tie styled number. Besides, if you are going to go all out and dress-up for an event, you might as well make the most of it.
The beauty of maximalist dressing is it does not always mean bright coloured clothing is the answer. Sometimes, as many brands are proving, the key is picking the right material and detailing it in a uniquely pronounced way.
Comme des Garçons proves this magnificently and have done so with many of their blazers, the designs stick with the traditional black blazer but have unique elements, such as tulle trim.
Homme Plissé Issey Miyake’s green blazer, while a simple shade, is bold in its design of being a technical-pleated blazer. It is both striking and mesmerising, and yet is not too outrageous for anyone unsure about embracing an alternative style to the typical blazer.
If you are someone who likes to stick with neutral shades and hues, the reclaimed vintage oversized blazer from ASOS may just be the one, as it relies on pinstripe and colour blocking to stand out.
So, no matter how extravagant you want to go, there is sure to be something for everybody in this latest trend.
When dressing for a cool weather day, jackets are a must. They offer that little extra layer when outside, and are easy to take off as soon as you hit a room with a little more warmth.
As well as bursts of colours and patterns being noticeable as of late, bomber jackets have also been quickly climbing the ladder as a wardrobe essential – and the mix of the trends has become unstoppable.
In the recent Milan Fashion Week, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada were all seen embracing this maximalism look with confidence, and unlike what has been seen before, all the jackets were accentuated and steered away from sleek tailoring.
Also on the runway, was the Diesel ripped-detail panelled bomber jacket in sage and olive green. The mix of detailing is what makes this jacket stand out, and here at Monde we love seeing how brands and designers are getting more creative with different design elements.
But it is not only the bomber jackets making a comeback, track jackets, such as the Palm Angels colour-block jacket, are also proving the more striking and eye-catching, the better.
So, all we can say is …embrace the trend with confidence and you will be looking like a sure thing.
