7 flattering fashion trends to try in 2017

Think Austin Powers circa 2002

Experiment with these fabulous trends this year. (Not all at once, obviously)! Read on and be inspired

1. MULES: Mules are taking over every sidewalk from London to Paris, and not just because they’re comfortable to wear all day long. Get a pair in blue, navy or bright red. Suede is also hot right now.

2. THE ’80s SHOULDER: This is one ’80s look we are happy to welcome back into our wardrobes: the super-flattering asymmetrical one-shoulder fitted top. Buy one in black for maximum versatility.

3. PLEATS: Pull out your golden-oldie pleated skirt for a simple, elegant look. Don’t have one stashed at the back of your wardrobe? This is the perfect excuse to head to your favourite vintage store.

4. BIKER JACKET: You don’t need a motorcycle to pull off a leather jacket. If you can find one with stud detailing, even better. For a feminine touch, pair it with a frothy skirt or pretty dress.

5. SLEEVE SLITS: This is the perfect fashion trend for shy arms. Up your accessory game with bangles and rings for some extra pop.

6. PATCHES: Add a little character to your favourite denim jacket with this cheap and cheerful trend.

7. SORBET TONES: Nothing says fashionista like a popping orange-sorbet ensemble. If head-to-toe sorbet isn’t your thing, accessorise with bright, feminine colours. Try pinks, yellows and subtle reds.

Here’s to a super-stylish year ahead!
