Feeling fired up yet? Become a fashion frontrunner.

Let us take you through the season’s trendiest styles.


Choppy and shaggy is sassy.

Channel your inner rockstar and get ready to sport feathery, textured layers.

The modern shag is a softer version of a mullet, with face-framing chin-length layers in front and gradual layers at the sides. It’s low maintenance and super versatile.

You can wash and wear it. Scrunch with a texturizing spray for an edgier look. Use a straightener to flip the layers or create loose waves with a curling rod.

Rock a fresh, new haircut and sport a modern shag like Billie Eilish and Bebe Rexha. Head over to your fave salon now to rock this fierce haircut.

Paint the town red.

Auburn is the ultimate autumn shade. Autumn 2021 wants you to turn up the chic.

Think burnt orange or a pumpkin spiced latte hue with hints of cherry red.

Get inspired by Riverdale’s Cheryl Blossom and The Queen’s Gambit’s Beth Harmon for their glam take on this in-vogue hair hue. Even Gigi Hadid has followed suit!

Ready to make a statement?

Go platinum.

This season is all about stylish streaks. Dark hair with beach blond highlights is the way to go.

A middle part with curtain bangs and face-framing platinum highlights on each side is super snazzy. Blackpink’s Jennie Kim pulls it off like a legend.

You can also go for soft, blended and almost-white highlights, just like YouTube star, Zoe Sugg.

Now’s the time to get your hair done!

Glow on!

Dewy skin is in. Wondering how to get that glass skin glow? The secret is out: double-cleanse and double moisturise!

Follow this simple routine. Remove traces of make-up with a cleansing balm first.

The Inkey List’s Oat Cleansing Balm is highly recommended because it’s gentle and suitable for any skin type.

Then lather up with a foamy, ceramide-rich cleanser like CeraVe soothing cleanser.

Apply a vitamin-rich antioxidant serum like Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop.

Once your skin has absorbed it, layer on a lightweight cream to double moisturise.

We totally swear by CosRx Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Cream.

Get your skincare essentials from LOOKFANTASTIC and pay in 4 over 6 weeks, 0 interest when you use Zilch.

Flaunt salon-perfect lashes.

Dramatic, doll-like long lashes are ultra-trendy.

This sultry look creates an elongated eyeliner effect, making your eyes appear wider and more alluring.

Applying a coat or two of mascara just won’t do.

You’re gonna need a professional to help you out with that.

Good thing you can go to any salon and tap and pay over time with Zilch!

Wing it.

Smouldering eyes are captivating. Using a liquid liner to create a cat-eye is how it’s done.

Don’t get us wrong, the full cat-eye is a classic, but celebs like Zendaya have also been wearing a subtler, smaller flick—also known as the “kitten eye”—as of late.

And you can do the same. Wing it like a pro with a hyper-precise liquid liner. Heroine Make-up’s SP Smooth Liquid Liner in Jet Black has got you covered!

Go Zilch it at Amazon!

You can either pay in 4 over 6 weeks with 0 interest or pay all in one to earn Zilch Rewards which you can use to discount future purchases.

Bold is beautiful.

Add a splash of colour to your wardrobe. Colour blocking is back in the game, but this time, you can go brighter than ever.

Pair a lemon yellow blazer with a mustard skirt. A royal blue dress with teal heels. A chilli red leather jacket with maroon cigarette pants. Anything goes!

This fresh and zesty orange number will take your OOTD to a whole new level.

Get yourself these 90’s-inspired crop top and maxi slip skirt co-ords from ASOS.

Pay in 4 over 6 weeks, 0 interest with Zilch. So you can have your cake and eat it too!

Be a denim darling.

The grunge aesthetic is back. That means wearing denim from head to toe. This casual, laid-back look is called the “Canadian Tuxedo”.

But here’s the twist: remember those low-rise jeans that Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan popularised in the early 2000s? They’re back in style again.

So strut your stuff and go Zilch this distressed denim jacket and hip-hugging jeans at Boohoo. And yes, you can pay in 4 or pay all in full!

Dress to the nines with this season’s cream of the crop.

The time has come for this trend to make a major comeback.

Hold your breath because cropped tops are trendy again! That includes cropped jackets and cardigans as well.

Too shy to show some skin? No worries. You can pair a cosy, knitted cropped jumper with a flowy long skirt for an equally sassy “high-low” silhouette.

Get this dainty lavender cropped jumper and high-waisted ombre wrap skirt from I Saw It First! When you Zilch them, you can split your payments into 4 over 6 weeks. 0 interest! Easy as pie. Sweet!

There you have it. Now, you’ve got everything you need to know to slay this season’s top trends.

So strike a pose. Take a beauty shot. Flaunt your bangin’ OOTD.

Remember, the world is your runway and in here, fashion rules.
