CATWALK TRENDS WE’ LL BE COPYING IN SS17

It’s preview season, and that time of year when we get to see the catwalk trends we’ll all be copying when spring arrives. The front rows have been packed with famous faces, and the design houses have wowed once again. So what have we learned from London, New York, and Paris fashion weeks? Here are some of the hottest trends to look out for next year.

CATWALK TRENDS WE' LL BE COPYING IN SS17

90’s cuts

Remember the crop top and the sweetheart neckline? We’ll they’re back. We’ve already had bombers, puffa jackets and boyfriend jeans. And now it’s time to welcome back another 90’s staple. Channel YSL and wear Bardot crops with low-slung jeans for a quirky, smart casual look.

 

White out

PAUL SMITH PRESENTS SS17 COLLECTION AT LFW

Catwalks are usually drenched in black, but next year is all about lightening the mood with crisp white garments. Follow in the footsteps of the models and dress head-to-toe in a single shade for an easy, chic ensemble. White denim crops up on most of the spring/summer catwalks. Adopt a new take on double denim by pairing pristine jackets and jeans.
Geek chic revamped

Remember those days when you needed to pack an anorak for your school trip? If you’ve kept your old school cagoules, you’re guaranteed to tick all the right fashion boxes next spring. If you’re keen to inject some edge, go for bright colours.

 

70’s vibes

ANYA HINDMARCH'S FUTURISTIC VISION FOR FASHION

Fashion is cyclical. Every era has more than one moment in the spotlight. If you’re looking to update your lingerie collection in 2017, embrace the energy and optimism of the 1970’s. Think bold colours, prints, and retro patterns. It’s only a matter of time before the catwalk trends filter down onto the high street. For ideas, check out pieces like those available from b tempted.  

 

Feathers

Fur is big news this autumn/winter, but it’s set to make way for feathers when the warmer weather arrives. You’ll find colourful, feminine plumes on everything from hats to skirts. Look out for pastel shades like lilac, lemon, and mint.

 

The belt is back

MARGARET HOWELL'S SS17 COLLECTION DURING LONDON FASHION WEEK

Belts are back with a vengeance for spring/summer 2017. The designer catwalks showcased floaty maxi dresses with cinched-in waists. Copy this look for an ethereal outfit or go for more formal styling with a slim belt and a pencil skirt. Experiment with colours and textures. Teal is a great alternative to black.

 

Stripe it up

We’re used to seeing leopard print on the catwalk, especially in the autumn/winter collections. Next spring, we’ll still be lusting after prints, but it’s time to earn your fashion stripes. It’s time to pay tribute to the beauty of the zebra and embrace those beautiful monochrome markings.

We may only be in the early days of fall, but it’s never too early to start planning ahead. The world of fashion is forward-thinking, so you always have a glimpse of what’s to come. By the time spring arrives, you’ll already have a suitably stylish wardrobe ready and raring to go.
