We live in uncertain times. But one thing is assured, these seven wardrobe essentials will have you covered for the next 365 days. We’ve checked in with our international style pundits to bring you a handful of trends you’ll be tracking in 2017.
Stripes are still strong in 2017. Once again, this print offers the fashion default, working with any outfit you can throw it at. The difference in 2017 is that lines and stripes are no longer pretty and parallel. Expect the unexpected in abstract stripes that go up, down and all the way around.

C/MEO Collective There Is A Way Long Sleeve Stripe Knit Top,

Sneakers and trainers are full of texture and vivid colour, stunning detail, and non-conformist materials this year. Think glitter and satin, leopard print and neon paired back with floaty fabrics and evening wear, as well as your everyday denim. Above all else, have fun with your kicks. Make sure sneakers this year really shout ‘style statement!’

Puma Creeper Sneakers, $146.80, available at Shopbop.

Free-hand splashes of paint-inspired abandon have taken their place as the print of 2017, and we can’t get enough of this artistically inspired aesthetic in everything from shoes to sweatshirts. If you’re lucky enough to have a toddler at home, go DIY on all your plain, unworn duds of 2016!

Gone are the off-the-shoulder styles. With a nod to Dallas, bigger is better in shoulders this year, with strong, broad silhouettes proving popular. Power suiting is du jour for the workday, and on the weekends, add ruffled and ribboned shirts, celebrating Laura Ingles with a touch of 80’s attitude.

Rachel Comey Black Frill Peplum Frida Jacket, approx. $871, available at Avenue32.
Topshop Floral Mesh Frill Blouse, approx. $59, available at Topshop.
Salmon pink is the most popular shade this year is set to see. Other members of the pink family proving popular include crimson and fuschia. If this is not your colour of choice, add it in small doses, such as a salmon shade bag or even necklace or earring to add up-to-the-minute impact.

2017 came out kicking! Women’s marches and a new President saw women get vocal – in voice and sartorial choice. This trend will continue throughout the year with emblazoned t-shirts and bags taking centre stage. Slogans are the new logo, so be heard this year without saying a word.
