Runways have been bombarded with brightly coloured “seaside stripes” which have a real summer feel to them. Think beach umbrellas and think old weathered deck chairs in a British seaside town! Picture yourself on a warm summers day, an ice cream in hand, wearing something that really captures the time of year. Beach colours and stripy shirts, like this Penguin shirt are going to be an outfit staple for Spring and Summer. This new trend is the cousin of the nautical stripe, so don’t worry, your beloved stripy T shirts and jumpers are still going to be salvageable for another year!
The athletic look:
Athletic inspired outfits are going to come into their own in 2017. After hitting the runway with an “easy elegance” vibe, expect to see people swapping out their jeans and shirts for sports t-shirts and joggers. No longer do you have to suffer in the name of style! This new comfy trend is definitely giving the “fashion is pain” saying a run for its money. Now sportswear isn’t just about getting fit or being comfy, it’s about getting with this seasons latest trend!
In collaboration with the athletic inspired clothes, expect to see lots of trainers and sporty shoes to finish off an everyday look. The beauty of wearing trainers is that they go with pretty much anything and everything, be it an outfit ready for a night on the town or a casual day out, trainers have your back! Not only are there so many styles, brands and fits for these shoes, the comfort element is unrivalled.
Men and women’s accessories are going to be quirky and bold in 2017. We are going to see a shift in focus to tribal patterns, chunky XXL beads and intricate designs, juxtaposed with a Rock and Roll vibe to suit everybody’s style persona! These bold accessories are going to scream out “we want to be noticed” and give every outfit that little bit of extra grit that is going to be at the forefront of everybody’s minds this year!
