Trendsetting April: Top 5 picks from The Design Collective that make a bold statement

We’ve officially stepped into the month of April, a time that automatically fills us with hope,  enthusiasm for the summer, and has us raring for some big and small changes. Earlier we turned out discerning eyes on our home, but this week we’re ready to peek into our closets. 

Many times, our wardrobe gets split into four different unique sections: capsule pieces that serve as a foundation to any look, once-in-a-blue-moon occasion wear that’s reserved for weddings and big events, workwear staples, lastly, statement buys. Basics may serve as the building blocks to a look, but it’s the statement showstoppers that make it Instagram worthy. This month, we recommend it’s time to jazz up your wardrobe with eye-catching pieces that define your style and make you stand out.  

Ahead, we’ve curated five such pieces that’ll surely win you the title of a fashion maverick.
