2. All red everything

3. Dazzle

The dazzle trend is all about dressing up and going full on glam, in a contradiction to the recent era of evening wear consisting of street style. So get Christmas party ready with the high street steals, to be found at Miss Selfridge, H&M and Boohoo.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”664″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”665″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”666″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”668″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”669″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

4. Sport Luxe

The uniform of the new era of supermodels: Kendall Jenner, the Hadids and the like, the sports luxe trend does not appear to be leaving any time soon. Featuring in collections from Versace, Puma and Tommy Hilfiger, you’ll be hitting a home run with your outfits by incorporating some sporty styles.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”670″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”672″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text]

5. Capes

An emblem of superheroes, the cape trend builds upon the reoccurring pattern within the AW17 season: giving power to women. Designers frequently use their platform to make political statements and this year it appears to be the rise of activism against Trump’s recent anti-feminist policies with capes featuring in the collections of Balmain, Burberry and Bottega Venneta.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”673″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

6. Suits

Striking shoulders and slim line cuts were the styles being sent down the runway this season. Inspired by the female boss empowerment of Hillary Clinton, nothing says business like a well-fitting suit.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”675″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”676″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”679″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”676″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
