7 trends to bring into the new year
These fashion finds will give you a head start.
Waist-cinchers (yes, actually) and bustiers were a big hit on the SS17 catwalk – and they are no longer to be worn underneath but rather on display. Wear this bustier on top of a t-shirt for a cool everyday look, or layer over a power-shouldered shirt for a more eye-catching, dressy effect.
THE MINI HEEL
Kitten heels have become the sophisticated and everyday-compatible choice when it comes to heels. The question for next season is – how low can you go? We’re in love with this ‘so low it is almost a flat’ style.
Chic grunge is having a moment – again! – next season. This time we look more to the 80s than the 90s. Enter tulle skirts and sheer dresses, paired with chunky boots for maximal effect.
LOOK, NO HANDS!
No matter what bag you choose to invest in next season, make sure to not wear it in your hand. Attach it around your waist, wear it across your body or invest in a chic and practical backpack.
Yup, the season’s uniform is khaki green (pun intended). The khaki colour scheme – ranging from sandy beige to deeper army greens – was taking over the fashion weeks’ catwalks. With this pleated midi skirt you’ll nail two trends in one.
THE WHITE SHIRT, DECONSTRUCTED
The white shirt is a wardrobe classic we always return to. But next season we put a spin on it with doubled or split sleeves, cut-out shoulders or ruffle details.
WALL STREET STRIPES
Stripes come in all shapes in SS17. From bold, graphic lines to understated minimalism and classic French Breton style. We’re especially fond of the pinstripe look – for blazers, coats or suited up in a head-to-toe outfit.
