“It is no longer in vogue to simply copy or emulate a look straight from a runway show,” celebrity stylist Sarah Edmiston says. “Now, more than ever, the focus is about how to make the fashion work for you and not the other way around.”

It’s great to be influenced, but knowing what works for us should form the base of it all.

For fashion writer and influencer Anna Vitiello, trends are not necessarily behind us, but we are now approaching them in a new way, which does lead us to consider more when it comes to making a purchase.

“I am not against trends, far from it – they have such a place in fashion and are exciting, and they inspire us to keep evolving – but, as with consumption, it is about changing our perception of what those trends mean to us. It’s great to be influenced, but knowing what works for us should form the base of it all. This is where personal style comes into play.”

“Establishing a capsule wardrobe is the first step – and how you style and put those pieces together translates to your personal style,” Gramston advises.
