Sweater and skirt by Gucci

For FW17, designers had a multitude of answers for the question of what women will wear for the new season. As we watched in awe over the runways, we were thrilled to see that the moral of the season was style diversity and substance. So, no matter what your style, there is truly something for everyone. Here are the key trends to try now.

Deconstructed Decadence

Wonderfully disheveled and deliberately undone, take your cues from the likes of Ellery and Hellessey for a quirky flavour of deconstructed dresses, blouses and re-assembled voluminous silhouettes to add a freshness to every day attire.

Flower Girl

No longer synonymous with ditsy prints and wedding guest dressing. For FW17, dark blooms take a bewitching turn with black accents, graphic posies and intriguing silhouettes, thanks to the likes of Ganni and Cinq à Sept.

Shop The Look

Midi Maxi Power

If you’re undecided about your hem length, FW17 urges you to have it all. Be it midi, be it maxi, this season you can really have your cake and eat it too, with designers such as Gabriella Hearst and Peter Pilotto often bringing you two hems in one.

Rethink Pink

The colour of the season took hold of runways far and wide for FW17. Designers from Miu Miu to Rejina Pyo created pieces ranging from the slinky to the structured in this powerful, feminine hue.

Tailored Treasures

No explanation needed here. Tailoring connoisseurs such as Stella McCartney served a no-frills take on power women this season, providing pantsuit perfection like never before.

Velvet Vigor

Velvet is here to stay. Fact. The fall catwalks told us so. Invest in Self-Portrait’s jaw dropping velvet outerwear and For Restless Sleepers’ perfect pyjama suits for a decadent injection of plush opulence.
