1. 80S PARTY STYLE Think metallics, disco leggings and the one-shoulder dress - the '80s is back, everyone! This is pure night-time attire - short minis and neon spandex. It's definitely not for the shy types. 2. NEW UTILITY Fashion with function is all the rage for 2017. Designers have cottoned on to the fact that we have shit to do, so we're workwear inspired pieces were big on the catwalks, with relaxed shapes and muted shades. 3. SLOGANS & LOGOS SAY NO MORE. It's time to let your T-shirt do the talking. Shop KAE. 4. THE DECONSTRUCTURED SHIRT Hallelujah, the trusty shirt isn't going anywhere. On the contrary, it's getting even more interesting. The off-the-shoulder trend is still going strong, but now we're getting ruffles, over-sized sleeves, peek-a-boo cut-outs and even cropped shirts hit the runway. It's official: Shirts are not boring for 2017. 5. RUFFLES. ALL THE RUFFLES. Basically if you're not wearing ruffles on, you might as well stay indoors. And don't be scared - it's not all girly - we caught a glimpse of black leather ruffles at Alexander McQueen, and punky ruffles at Preen. 6. GRAPHIC STRIPES Statement stripes were spotted everywhere during the shows - if you're not into florals, perhaps we can interest you in a full-on striped ensemble, because that's the thing, these stripes aren't subtle - they're full on.
