It's always clearer to me right at the beginning of the new season. FWIW, these are the silhouettes and combinations that look fresh to my eye:

  • Bootcuts worn with trendy blouses and knitwear
  • Denim on denim
  • Culottes
  • Cropped pants and jeans paired with high shaft booties
  • Sleek no-nonsese tailoring and polish
  • Modern Retro Looks - hence, Retro Futurism (think the '60s and 70s especially)
  • Pastel and light coats
  • Toffee as a dominant neutral
  • Knee-high boots
  • Mid-calf boots
  • Hybrid footwear
  • Dressy jeans
  • Capes and capelets

Of course, this is a very subjective list. What looks fresh to you?
