Meghan Markle’s wedding dress wasn’t the only bespoke creation under the roof of St George’s Chapel in Windsor earlier today: for example Amal Clooney wore what has to be the best guest outfit of all (a stunning marigold number created especially for her from Stella McCartney) and Meghan’s dear friend Priyanka Chopra had a lilac skirt suit crafted by the team at Vivienne Westwood. However, thanks to the varied and vast guest-list in place there were some quality opportunities to see some more wallet-friendly investment options in place. Okay, so you won’t see any Topshop below, but you will find some go-with-everything heels that are well worth the cost-per-worth you’ll get out of them (Kate Middleton clearly agrees) and plenty of pretty midi dresses that are going to see you through the wedding season and so much more to come.

Many of the key buys for 2018 are reworkings of ’80s and ’90s classics, such as Versace scarf prints, leather belt bags, pastel double-breasted suits and white shoes. This week, Kris Jenner hijacked her daughter Kylie’s Instagram account to show her collection with Kylie Cosmetics—she wore all black with a chunky gold Chanel chain belt and micro sunglasses. Kris is often overlooked in the fashion department, but this Instagram story reminded me that no one does diva ’80s glamour quite like Kris. Looking at old pictures of Kris, I found her wearing a lavender double-breasted jacket, leopard-print swimwear and all this season’s key accessories. Keep scrolling to see—and shop—Kris Jenner’s best throwback looks.

Our favorite part about looking at what people wore 50, 60, or 70 years ago is not the ability to point out what’s so different about our styles. We’re much more interested in our similarities. And recently one particular decade of fashion history made us realize just how little has actually changed when it comes to the ebb and flow of fashion trends. In fact, we’d be willing to bet that a lot of the styles you emulate today were the same ones women in the 1940s wanted to wear, too.

The decade itself saw a wealth of iconic looks, including Katharine Hepburn’s penchant for high-waisted trousers and tailored pieces, as well as Dior’s New Look, which came in the later part of the decade but forever remained a fashion reference. And there’s much more beyond that.

Take a look ahead at just a sampling of the 1940s fashion moments that speak directly to modern women, and shop some pieces inspired by it.

Up next, take a look at a love-it-or-hate-it style decade with an influence that can still be felt today: the ’80s.

When it comes to new denim trends, keeping an open mind is always my objective going in, especially when it’s one that’s endorsed by Net-a-Porter. But this look is one that’s certainly a departure from the rest of my denim collection, which mostly consists of straight-leg styles, cropped flares, and the occasional pair of skinny jeans. So back to Net-a-Porter, they just posted a story on their site pinpointing “the new jean shape”, and I was intrigued to see that the look that was all over the runways of S/S 18 (including Alexander Wang and Monse) has officially hit the mainstream: baggy-yet-tapered jeans (many of which are distressed). Another way of classifying them is high-waisted boyfriend jeans.

This emerging denim trend is a shape we last saw in such a big way in the ‘90s (which explains the resurgence, since everything from that decade is cool again), and it’s basically the antithesis of skinny jeans. So what’s the key to pulling it off? Opt for a pair with a slightly cropped length, pair with heels, and keep the rest of your outfit clean and simple. Now all you have to do is choose a pair—below are the ones my open mind is currently considering.

This is a good “starter” option. Available in sizes 23 to 32.
Polished enough for the office. Available in sizes 0 to 12.
’90s, but make it 2018. Available in sizes 0 to 10.
I’d gladly wear these with crisp white tops all summer. Available in sizes FR34 to 44.
This Saint Laurent pair looks just vintage enough. Available in sizes 24 to 31.

It Might Take Me a While to Get Used to "The New Jean Shape"
