Still in style: 2014 trends still going strong in 2015

January, also known as the month of the Great Purge, is a time to get rid of bad habits, bad relationships … and crochet cardigans! While we encourage an annual sartorial edit, these trendy 2014 pieces aren’t going anywhere in the next 12 months.

Graphic Sweater

Fashion-forward sweatshirts and pullovers inject a playful element into every wardrobe (cheeky slogans optional).

Gwen Stefani MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela printed graphic sweatshirt, $260, farfetch.com
Sonia by Sonia Rykiel tromp l’oeil sweatshirt, $400, net-a-porter.com

Leather Everything

Leather separates – both real and faux – come in a range of colours and finishes and are must-have transitional pieces to take you from snow-covered streets to spring sidewalks.

Olivia Munn IRO Cora leather panel shirt, $354, iroparis.com
Tibi leather culottes in stone, $1,100, tibi.com

Chic Sneakers

Last year’s must-have flat, the sneaker, remains au courant with metallic details and stud appliqués. Even self-lacing sneakers, an urban shoe myth inspired from Back to the Future II, may hit shelves this year, or so says Nike designer Tinker Hatfield.

Cara Delevingne Acne Studios Adriana metallic smiley face trainers, $650, acnestudios.com
Mary Katrantzou for Adidas Decathlon silver stud ZX 5000, $435, marykatrantzou.com

Head-To-Toe White

Winter white is the epitome of elegant cold-weather dressing and easily transitions into warmer temperatures. Choose pieces with a consistent tone, but mix textures (think silk blouse with knit sweater) to avoid looking bland.

Emma Watson Joe Fresh floral lace-front tee, $29, joefresh.com
Emilio Pucci side ruffle peplum skirt, $507, farfetch.com

Crop Tops

Printed, embellished, monochromatic or metallic – these midriff-baring tops continue to be a style must-have. The take-away? Don’t stop the crunches.

Topshop semisheer lace crop top, $65, topshop.com

Architectural Earrings

Bigger, bolder and stronger – a statement earring is the hottest accessory, both on and off the red carpet.

Jacquie Aiche bar stud and starburst ear jacket, $380, jacquieaiche.com
