Every year, magazines, Instagram pictures and the high street are awash with new trends of the season that have filtered down from the catwalks and design houses.Written by Alexandra Landes on 7th July 2014
Fierce & Finished
Fierce January sales – Yes, there is still shopping to be done girls
January sales – Yes, there is still shopping to be done girls. House of Fraser and Debenhams are always excellent for bargains.
Essay deadlines – With the end of the first week of term came deadlines, now we are into week two we feel free as a bird! Enjoy it while it lasts.
Pale and interesting – January is the month to embrace our lack of glowing, bronzed skin. So step away from the self-tan and rock opaque tights instead
Downton Abbeyonce – This innovative tumblr account uses Beyonce lyrics to illustrate Downton Abbey clips – hilarious and bizarrely effective! Fans of the two will appreciate the ingenuity behind this concept, and it is an excellent way to procrastinate.
Versace's second range for H&M – Exclusively available online from January 19th. The bold colours will work much better for the S/S season and will ignite excitement for your summer wardrobe!
Sleek up-dos – In particular, ponytails. The hairstyle is back, but this time the look is much more sophisticated; swept up high and slick, with minimal accessories and lashings of red lipstick.
January sales – We can't be bothered to thrift through piles of clothes that contain every size bar our own any more, bring on the spring collection!
House hunting – Forget 'Zuki says relax', I'm a fresher looking for a house, and I'm panicking
Christmas bath bombs – Thanks to those Santa shaped bath bombs from your distant relative, your bath now resembles a crime scene. If anything they're TOO much fun…
Refresher's flu – Like the one in the summer. But worse.
American TV breaks – We don't want to have to wait a month to find out what's happened in our favourite TV shows! Grr…
Weight loss adverts – please save these for a time when we don't have piles of selection boxes to still get through!
CBB – The Celebrity Big Brother house is filled with wags, failed talent show contestants and Sonia from Eastenders. Enough said.
