AW17 Trend Spotlight: Five Fashion Must-Buys

VIDEO: Not sure what to wear for Autumn/Winter 2017/2018? Celebrity Stylist Nicky Hambleton-Jones simplifies it for you with her 5 top fashion trend picks this season in our NEW style video.

AW17 Mens Trend Spotlight: Spliced

Cut and paste takes on a new meaning with the fusion of fashion taking place in menswear this season. Contrasting sleeves, unexpected cloth combinations and panelling are united to create hybrid apparel which taps into the growing demand for high/low dressing.

AW17 Mens Trend Spotlight: Moss Green

Navy, grey and black may be every man’s key neutrals but if you’ve yet to introduce shades of moss and olive into the mix, this season is the time to go green. From tailoring to down-time dressing, it’s the go-to neutral to elevate your style and add just a hint of a tint to lift the darker tones in your wardrobe.

AW17 Trend Spotlight: Tailoring

On the runway, tailoring was oversized with strong shoulders at the likes of Ellery and Isabel Marant. The trouser suit and skirt suit are making a comeback this season and in a more corporate style than the printed statement co-ords we have seen in recent seasons for occasion dressing.

AW17 Mens Trend Spotlight: Orange

For AW17/18 it’s orange which gets its moment in the spotlight but this bold bright is surprisingly wearable. If you’re already adventurous when it comes to dressing, then take your style up a notch with tangerine-tinged outerwear that packs a punch.

AW17 Trend Spotlight: The Dress

The dress is firmly back on the fashion radar after several seasons where separates took the lead in our styling selections with evening skirts dressed down for daytime and wear-anywhere pieces styled up and down depending on the occasion.

AW17 Mens Trend Spotlight: Camel

Rich and earthy desert tones are warming up menswear for the AW17/18 season with camel taking the sartorial lead. The fashion-forward way to wear camel is to combine with burnt caramel and dark brown tones but if that’s on the adventurous side for you, play it safe by using this on-trend neutral to lift a dark look.

AW17 Trend Spotlight: Silver Shine

As with many trends, the key is to wear the look top to toe and while the high octane sparkle of sequins, metallic leather and lurex in one outfit may work on the runway it doesn’t necessarily work in real life. But this trend can be wearable and taken into daytime dressing with muted metallic pieces – look for lurex knits and gunmetal tones as an alternative to high-shine silver.

AW17 Mens Trend Spotlight: Checks

As checks are at the forefront of men’s trends for Autumn Winter 2017/2018, it’s time to get adventurous. Take your pick from plaid, windowpane, dogtooth and classic two tone checks – anything goes where gridlines are concerned – but don’t just stick to one at a time.

AW17 Trend Spotlight: Autumn Florals

Floral prints are never far from fashion’s favourites whatever the season as the pattern is no longer limited to the warmer months and is instead a year-round staple in our wardrobes. The key though is to tweak the style of your floral print pieces as there’s a wealth of horticulturally inspired prints to inspire and update your style each season.

AW17 Trend Spotlight: Red

Red is without doubt the colour of the season and this fiery hue is definitely not one to be reserved for festive fashions as day wear and office attire are on red alert this autumn/winter.

On the runway the message was more is more when it comes to this key colour trend; top to toe red packs a punch whether all in one shade or a mixed palette of bright scarlet with deep red wine tones.
