We love scrolling Instagram and seeing all the amazing fashion trends, but sometimes it can be difficult and even downright intimidating to style them. Style expert, Erica Wark is helping us turn the hottest trends into wearable fashion to get you inspired the next time you’re shopping. Shop the looks below and get ready to become your own IG inspo.

Black and White

There are so many ways to mix and match white and black. This Y2K-inspired checkered print sweater adds texture and dimension. Pair it with these simple cream-coloured high-rise wool pants from Banana Republic to brighten up the outfit. To finish it off, add some fun accessories like a cute pair of sunglasses and a structured tote bag.

Bold Colours

Bold colours never go out of style. If you’re looking to dabble in injecting some colour into your wardrobe, a suit is a great option because you can wear it as a set or separate the pieces to wear them individually to ease your way into it. Keep the monochromatic vibes going with your accessories, like these slingback heels and mini bag from Zara.

Cargo Pants

Cargo pants are both chic and relaxed, making them super easy to wear every day. Forget the oversized 90s-style cargo pants and go for a more modern cut, like this pleated pair from The Gap that features flat cargo pockets. Finish the look with cream-coloured accessories to make the olive green in the pants and shirt stand out.

SHOP: Side Cinch T-Shirt; $24.99 at Gap | High Rise Pleated Cargo Pants with Washwell; $99.95 at Gap | Crossbody Pouch; $24 at Oak and Fort | Rebel Combat Boots; $130 at Aldo

Wrap Coat

The wrap coat looks good on everyone, thanks to its versatile silhouette. The key is you don’t always have to wear it wrapped—you can keep it open and tie it up in the back to switch things up. This cream-coloured version from Zara is the perfect length and will keep you cozy all winter long. Add a timeless pop of colour underneath with these stretchy faux leather straight pants from Dynamite.

SHOP: Belted Long Cozy Wrap Coat; $199.95 at Dynamite | Mock Neck Tank Top; $21 at Dynamite | Gisele Faux Leather Straight Pants; $35 at Dynamite | Belt Bag; $95 at Ela Handbags
