“The only thing that is constant is change.” These words ring even truer for fickle fashion. Trends experience momentary popularity in a particular season – the ubiquitous bell-bottoms of the seventies were not in vogue again for decades – while others seem to persist. The ones that persist are the timeless, the classics, the ones that never truly go out of style.

As the end of another year approaches once more, our favourite designers inspire us with the cuts, colours, and patterns fashioned into their SS17 collections. From the runway, we bring you some of the best styles you can assemble in your everyday looks to the most glamorous occasions!

A new year begets a new you – be daring, be confident, and always be dressed in your best. So break away from the status quo, reinvent your wardrobe with these trendy styles and turn heads everywhere you go!

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

 -Yves Saint Laurent

1. Khaki

A colour and style that was initially conceived and inspired by the military, khaki has eased its way into fashion. Khaki says effortless, yet structured and disciplined. Highly versatile, khaki can be worn as a sophisticated trench coat, a simple tank, to comfy joggers. The wonderful thing about masculine khaki is that you can still ooze femininity, look hot, and feel an amazing sense of empowerment all at the same time!759279f1ea0b62e877e93eca3074c209aruna

Sequins! Glitter! Shine! Welcoming in a new year is not complete without some sparkle! Strut your stuff in a bareback sequined gown, or elevate your everyday look with a shiny pencil skirt. The glitz and glamour of a shiny accessory or outfit proves that anyone can be the life of the party, so infuse some shimmer into your wardrobe and feel fabulous!

Bold vibrant prints and splashy floral designs are always a visual treat – transporting us to an idyllic island getaway far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Some prints are soft against the warm summer skin, while others take on bold shapes and almost psychedelic colours. Whether it’s your day off in the city or a well-deserved vacation in tropical paradise, grab that floppy straw hat, put on some shades, and throw on those wild floral prints!

Pink has the potential to dominate at both ends of the spectrum – soft and pretty or loud and adventurous. Pair a bright fuchsia dress with nude heels for a night out with your partner, or a peach tulle dress with delicate strappy heels for Sunday brunch with the girlfriends. Bring out the feminine side of you with a dash of pink and slay the fashion scene!
