Fashion Trends for 2017

Fashion trends for spring/summer 17 have models, buyers , designers and all other manner of interested parties mega excited!.

Why is that you ask? Pretty much 2017 is developing as a very upbeat season in fashion.

There have been a variety of ‘new take’ interpretations on the 1980’s (just think big frills, big shoulders, lots of bling!) and a fully flourished colour range that is probably one of the largest used in a decade. Lots of fuschia, scarlet, purples, greens of all shades and more!).

Happiness and smiles have literally been oozing from a huge amount of designs this year. Some trusty stalwarts of many summer lineups are back again, stripes and floral patterns, except this time they are even more striking and defining, enough to make even the most hardened fashionista look again.

This season is espousing a DIY culture where you, the buyer makes the rules! Fancy being a punk goddess in one of the many transparent, peekaboo dresses that fashionistas have dreamt up in wild materials? GO for it!


Want to go more mix and match outfit? No problem, this has been rubber stamped by some of the top fashion houses on the block this year and there is oodles of inspiration on the web to choose from. Céline’s Phoebe Filo even sent her models on to the catwalk in mis matching shoes! And they pulled it off.

Want to accessorize? Not a problem, there are some hot trends in bags right now too! Micro bags are BIG this year, lots of different takes on the theme too. Eco friendly bags from companies such as Elvis and Kresse are also very hot right now,  the full EK range is available in various places online but we found the best prices on twelo

Hobo bags? Still cutting it and been featured on many catwalks this year too.

Last but not least, oversize bags! Made trendy on the catwalk by a number of big designers, shop around and you can find some real bargains without having to spend Gucci money!!
