Style Spy: The AW17 Trends
Four cities later, here are our picks of the top trends spotted on the New York, London, Milan and Paris catwalks to invest in now….
The tonal dressing movement has infiltrated stylish women’s wardrobes everywhere. The most refined and simultaneously impactful way to try this trend is by using nature’s tones.
From languid to razor-sharp, strength and femininity this season was embodied in The Suit.
Tailoring has been top of the agenda for the past few seasons, but the trend is set to go global for AW17. Pronounced shoulders, double-breasted cuts and elegantly pressed slacks mark the new, everyday uniform (in, and out of the office).
If the runways were not convincing enough, the style set has confirmed that – whether it’s a coat or in the form of separates – the pieces to have are checked. Tartan and check is a weirdly adaptable fabric, capable of taking on a different personality depending on how its cut and styled; The lesson here is that this autumn there’s a tartan out there for every clan.
The Flat Boot
Heels will always hold a special place in our hearts, but the newest footwear of fancy is the refined combat boot. With dresses, mini skirts or your favourite straight-leg denims; the lace-up boot will be your shoe this season….and next!
Return Of The Waist
The wave of feminism that struck in the run up to the AW17 shows hit the catwalk. Cinching belts ensured that the eye-line was firmly fixed upon a commanding womanly waist. This is power dressing as we never knew it before.
