Getting clued up on the latest trends is a given as we approach the new season, but what about the ones that are here to stay? Here are eight trends sticking around for 2017 and how to style them now.
Drawing inspiration from 2016’s easy breezy sportswear and loungewear styles, this new season is all about easy elegance with contrasting silhouettes making unexpectedly perfect pairings.
SHOP: Satin Panel Joggers / Tie Sleeve Jumper
SWEET WRAPPER METALLICS
Shining light on your look day or night, metallics burst onto the scene last season in all their glittering light. Next year ditch your sequins and subtle sparkle in favour of sweet wrapper-esque separates and reflective accessories. Shine on.
SHOP: Foil Cami / Metallic Shopper Bag
Head to toe colour might be scary to those who are most comfortable wearing all-black, but last season’s greys and camels are making way for a whole new cohesive look. We’re talking cobalt blues, fiery reds and primrose yellows for the ultimate colour block.
SHOP: Red Puffer / Leather Look Mini Skirt
Sporting silhouettes have arguably been the most desired of the past 12 months and the luxe approach is breathing new life into the trend for 2017. Think hoodies teamed with feminine frills for the ultimate street style statement.
SHOP: Cropped Hoodie / Frill Hem Skirt
Playing on 80s accessories, the wide belt is the ultimate finishing touch we can’t wait to take into 2017. While the mercury remains low, wrap yours over your tailored suits and maxi coats, while eveningwear sees a metallic piece make the perfect pairing with your one shoulder dress.
SHOP: Square Stretch Belt / Wide Buckle Waist Belt
Pastel lovers rejoice; pink isn’t going anywhere next season. Add pops of bubblegum with hoodies and sweats, or go for a tonal look with a structured blazer and matching trousers.
SHOP: Pink Blazer / Lace Up Sleeve Sweater
Forget 90s layering with polo necks and tees, next season sees 2016’s love of mesh elevated to new feminine heights. Think chiffon frilled tops under your pinafore, or sheer dresses added to your day ensemble for a party-ready feel.
SHOP: Frill Tee / Long Sleeve Bodysuit
Floral threads were a big deal this year and they’re stepping up in 2017, woven on your heels and adorning your party silhouettes. Day or night appropriate, the sewn pattern has never been so desirable.
