It's true that dressing for work everyday, especially if you work in the creative industries, can cause anxiety that you just don't need in your life. We’ve all experienced ‘decision-making stress’. It's actually why Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs used to wear the same "uniform" to work every day, so they’d have one less decision to worry about. 


There are plenty of times when a simple trouser and shirt combo will do, but we tend to fall into the outfit trap of looking samey, especially during the winter season, sporting the same sweater a few days in a row. 

How to create the perfect work capsule wardrobe…

Dressing for work shouldn't be difficult if you simply invest in a few key items. For example, opting for a versatile suit or a few blazers is a great idea because you can change the look up with shirts, jumpers or T-shirts. Then go for a really great pair of trousers coupled with work-ready sweaters. 

If you want to step outside of the usual blazer and trousers uniform, opt for a midi skirt, a pair of corduroy pants or, if your workplace allows it, a statement jumpsuit. If you own the key ingredients it should be fairly easy to mix and match in order to create an elegant outfit Monday to Friday hassle-free.

Dressing for Spring is always an adventure as you dabble between winter and lighter items to suit your mood and temperature degrees. Then, there are those that seems like they were created for transitional weather take the windbreaker for example. Although it had a bad rap it recently made a great comeback. Perhaps it's due to our love for athleisure that has allowed designers to offer us a brand new range of elevated windbreakers and athletic accessories. 


Take Alexander Wang's super sporty version of eye-catching windbreakers both full-length and cropped styles. Sacai and Louis Vuitton also served us with an array of embellished styles including patterns and sequins. Last fall, innovative funky windbreakers made an appearance on the runways of designers like Isabel Marant and Valentino. 

But, more recently Paris street style proved that these jackets were among the standout trends. The brightly coloured styles from the 80's and 90's are gaining massive popularity especially paired with other streetwear faves like vinyl pants and dad sneakers. 

Celebs also gave their own styling tips. Take Kaia Gerber who was spotted in a windbreaker zipped over a turtleneck with jeans and her favourite white sneakers. Gigi Hadid appeared in NYC sporting a vintage windbreaker with plaid trousers and boots. 

Pair your own windbreaker with a spring dress, dad shoes and a cross body round bag for the perfect daywear outfit that you can wear to your brunch or to run errands. Opt for an old-school version and don it over a crop top leggings and sneakers for the ultimate athleisure version. 

How will you be sporting your windbreaker this Spring?

Transitional weather periods require transitional wardrobe. And one of the transitional weather absolute favourite staples is the trench coat. From royal, Kate Middleton to reality star Kim Kardashian West and blogger/ journalist Pandora Sykes (you are seeing the expansion of the fashion spectrum here, right?) are opting for multiple variations of the trench coat. Whether you choose the Bottega Veneta one that Lauren Bacall wore in the SS18 show or the uber trendy winter floral print at Michael Kors, this piece is bound to add more than a few points of elegance to your look. 


There's great variety in form but most importantly in the fabric. High gloss details or full on shiny leather trenches. Tightly cinched or left in a looser silhouette. One of the most spot on colours for trench coats this season is khaki, but get ready for some impressive numbers in red, off-white, camel and baby blue.

The allure of wearing lingerie as outerwear is nothing new, but as we transcend into Spring the most popular trend of last season is emerging yet again: the Spring slip dress. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez welcomed the sexy throwback trend from the 90s without fail. Likewise, in the 1990’s Andy McDowell, Rachel from Friends and pretty much every starlette of the time sported this very easy to incorporate trend. Its popularity stems from its versatile nature. 


An ivory floor length slip can make for a wondrous wedding dress, a red slip dress can look amazing on a night out while a black slip worn with a white tee and a pair of sneakers is your ultimate daywear go-to! 

When it comes to styling layering a piece of fabric (plain white t-shirt, blouse, shirt) is not only chic but very practical too. It's one thing having a strap fall when worn as lingerie at home it's quite another if that happens while working or commuting crammed in the tube. That multitasking white t-shirt lets the slip stay in place whilst providing cover. 

For that extra piece of layer wear it over a slogan hoodie that will elevate your style know-how while keeping you warm at the same time.

Have a look at out exclusive edit of all the slip styles you need to own this season!

Nanushka was born in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, more than a decade ago, but is finally getting under the spotlight. If you spend your days cruising on Instagram, you definitely saw the brand's design: maybe a dress, a coat... fashionistas love it! From Song of Style to NYC Bambi, without forgetting the French it-girl Caroline de Maigret, they all wear Nanushka.  

It's hard not to fall for its amazing outerwear, their famous lilac wrap dress. 

We had the chance to meet Sandra Sandor, the designer behind the brand, during Paris Fashion Week, for an exclusive interview, to chat about the story of the brand and what we should expect in the future. 


Shopcade: What brought you to fashion ? 

Sandra: Actually, it was a given way for me because my mother was a children's wear designer in the 70s prior to the fall of the Iron Curtain. Dressing was always a very important self-expression form for me. I wasn't sure that I wanted to become a designer until the age of 17. Then, I thought that I really want to try to study fashion design and it was very interesting because you know, in Hungary, there is no history in fashion and there aren't many fashion schools. I really wanted to study fashion somewhere where it was very relevant. 

After studying in the London College of Fashion, I went back to Budapest were Nanushka began, back in 2006. 


How do you define Nanushka's style? 

S: We usually think of ourselves as a bridge between intuitive and functional design. The clothes that we will keep loving and will become our wardrobe staples are those in which we really feel comfortable in as well. So, we try to execute this also in the design from the choice of fabric. We try to make everything washable. Nothing gets very wrinkly. It's comfortable wear for every season and good for both seasons. Of course, we do have fur coats for winter, but it has a soft feel.  

I don't think trends are ad-hoc things they reflect our surroundings and the people around us. Nanushka, from a design perspective is trying to be relevant for the era we live in. 


Where did you draw your inspiration from?  

S: My main source of inspiration as a designer it to try to create harmony, while mixing very distant cultural references, like Western with Oriental or Far Eastern. Actually, these two have been permeating through our collections. Sometimes even for three seasons, we kind of have a theme that carries over and we maybe add an extra inspiration. As a designer, I don't want to jump in too quickly. The next season is already coming, but I like to keep the inspiration flowing for longer. Mixing the Wild Western boots with Far Eastern culture has been going since Resort 18, carried over to our SS18. For Pre-Fall 18/19, we added 90s Berlin colors and silhouettes, as well as vegan leathers. 

Also, as a general inspiration, the traveling state of mind really inspires me. When you travel, you're very receptive, very open and almost like a child state of mind, and comfort becomes essential. 


How do you want women to feel when they wear your clothes?  

S: I really want them to feel confident, easy, effortless


Called the label to watch by fashionistas, how do you feel about social media ?  

S: Social media really helped us grow. We kind of think of ourselves as a lifestyle brand. We try to make our social media platform a moodboard of our brand and also a source of inspiration. Influencers is our secret in a way. We never pay for partnerships, but we work with influencers who represent our brand values. I think it's important for a brand to give to the right people, no with the biggest followers, because their followers are similar to ours. 


What's your favorite piece of the current collection ? 

S: From the SS18, our tiger-inspired print made with watercolor painting, and digitally printed on fabric fabric is my favorite. We made a pair of long pants from it called Nevada pants, inspired by pyjama pants from Coco Chanel in the 30s or 40s. She was the first woman to wear pyjama pants as a daily wear I think. 


What should we expect for the future collections ?  

S: The values and clashing cultures as a source of inspiration will definitely remain, I think it's important to highlight where I come from. Hungary has always been an intersection of East and West. The German Empire had a big effect on us, as well as Turkish culture and the Parisian Belle Epoque. At the turn of the century, travel was open for everyone. Hungarians and artists came to Paris to get some inspiration and change their values etc. So, when you come to Budapest, you'll find a Turkish bath on one side of the street, next to Brutalist buildings on the other side. So it's a mix of cultures. 

But going back to how I imagine my future collections, I think we're going to develop, while our core brand values and sources of inspiration remain. And spice it up with the season's trends. A good balance. 


If you had to pick only one piece you created, which one would it be? 

S: Hard question! But I love outerwear and our brand is really known for that. So I would probably pick a coat, specifically a robe coat. 


What are your do's and don'ts when it comes to fashion ?  

S: I don't really believe in do's and don'ts. I think you can get away with anything if you put it in the right context. 


What is the must-have of every outfit?  

S: The right pair of shoes, they define the whole outfit in the end. But I could also say that a good pair of jeans is a must.

One of the most immediate trends to emerge from fashion month was anything and everything plastic. Whether it was see-through opac black made of PVC or vinyl, plastic interpretations were appearing everywhere during AW18. Think long practical raincoats at Burberry, moto futurism at Valentino or Chanel's chic 1960's see-through version including capes and boots. 

Even Yeeze caught in on the trend and presented thigh-high tubular boots. Most designers were looking at the trend ironically, attempting to elevate the plastic fabric which is associated with food preservation to a fashion trend. Kind of like 2010's obsession with trash bags. 

Street style was also heavily focused on plastic wear especially when it came to rain gear. Admittedly this trend is challenging to wear IRL even though the synthetic fabric has made its way into our mainstream attire starting from the collections of all our sartorial favourites.#000000"> 

It was Karl Lagerfeld who truly gave PVC an haute couture dimension not only by the artistry with which he crafted the clothes but also by styling them with modern Chanel tweed suits. They were word under feminine hooded rain capes in plastic, denim jackets and skirts were trimmed with plastic fringe while he created low-heeled boots in clear plastic as a luxury alternative to our common rain boot. Similarly, Demna Gvasalia and Acne Studios opted for sleek plastic raincoats. 

This season the trend dominated New York and London alike. Philipp Plein was most experimental by layering faux fur and metallic pieces while Jeremy Scott opted for Space age and taking cues from Barbarella in the 1960's.When it comes to styling, work the trend around your everyday essentials instead of adopting a head-to-toe look. 

Take influencer Yoyo Cao's example by layering a transparent overcoat over a classic camel trench, white tee and distressed denim. Try a plastic trench belted with a Gucci belt or simply invest in plastic accessories: From a see-through bag to a hat or boots, there's always a more nuanced way to incorporate plastic in your everyday attire.

Earrings were the major statement last season, and now they are even a bigger statement for Autumn Winter 2018. Oversized is not big enough as earrings are now longer, larger and more eye-catching. If you are looking for a statement piece, go for the biggest and boldest option that you can find because your ears will be the focus for the following season! #earring #fashion #statement #trend #streetstyle #style #AW #autumnwinter #autumn #winter #fall

Shiny and metallic fabrics are the biggest attraction of Fall Winter 2018 styles. Parkas and jackets that are similar to thin foil was a major trend of the runway. Literally brighter than our futures… This metallic trend is big and bold for 2018. If you love making statements, this will be your favourite trend. #shiny #metallic #trend #streetstyle #style #autumn #winter

Fashion is prepared to keep us warm during the winter. Huge blankets ruled the runway in the past fashion month. Many designers adapted our cozy blankets into a fashion accessory. This new ‘must’ of fashion is my favourite, because nothing keeps me warm during cold weathers and this can potentially be my solution! #blanket #winter #autumn #fall #trend #streetstyle #style #fashion
