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.

The New Stripes

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.

The New Sneakers

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!’

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.
