Now that we're three months into 2014 and with the dreary winter weather starting to lift, it's time to start thinking about a new wardrobe!
But where do you start? With the fashion world moving at a rate of knots and the high street claiming the next big thing is always just around the corner, it can sometimes seem like a mountain of a task.
Thankfully we have some results in which will hopefully make life a lot easier when choosing something that just can't fail but to impress! The results come courtesy of Internet giant eBay, who have announced its shoppers most sought after fashion outfit of 2013.
The site, which has more than 19 million users worldwide, revealed that jersey dresses, Parka jackets, black boots and Hobo bags were all the big winners with their users, clocking in more sales and listings than any other fashion items last year. They also look great as an ensemble.
So lets have a look at these items in a bit more detail shall we?
Effortless and light, a piece that simply never goes out of style and depending on it's colour, it can act as a go-to piece for lots of ladies. The skater dress in particular was a big hit in 2013 and will continue this way throughout 2014 purely for the reason stated above.
The parka jacket was a massive hit in the Autumn/Winter of 2013. Because of it's laid back look it can also work in the summertime. Parkas look great with short shorts, a crop top and wellies, perfect for the festival season and for anyone looking for an extra layer of warmth!
Black boots have and always will be a timeless piece that every girl should have in her wardrobe, much like the LBD! They look great with a pair of jeans in the winter and add an edgy vibe to a floral dress or t-shirt and shorts combo in the summer.
Everyone wants a bag big enough to carry the world as well as keeping stylish and easy. The hobo bag is just that; relaxed and casual, an approach that many of the trends will be taking for SS14, particularly since the jungle trend, which will tie perfectly with this particular piece.
To celebrate these findings, have a look below to watch Katie and Ralf create their own take on the must-have outfit of 2013.
