We’d like to wish each and every one of our customers a ‘Happy New Year’ for 2017, from all of us here at Robinsons.
Now that the tree is down and the Celebrations have been cast aside in favour of some much-needed healthier alternatives, the time has come to look ahead to the trends you will be wearing in 2017. Spring/summer collections from some of fashion’s biggest names have already arrived in store at Robinsons; these are the trends to shop now.
2016 was all about baring your shoulders but 2017 sees them covered up in the most statement of styles. Eighties style power dressing makes a storming return for SS17, with puffed shoulders, sculptural sleeves and, dare we say it, even shoulder pads making a comeback to add some serious attitude to everything from dresses to outerwear.
A kitten heel is often considered fashion’s ultimate footwear faux-pas but nothing could be further from the truth for 2017. Our penchant for a lower heel gained momentum last year and the next take on the trend is this most ladylike of accessories, replacing last season’s loafers with just a hint of a heel. Avoid verging into twinset and pearl territory by styling yours with straight-leg denim, oversized sweaters and ever-so-slightly unruly hair.
SS17 is the season to be outspoken in slogan T-shirts that let you put your point across without saying a single word. Last season’s logos, patches and embroidery have been replaced with wording that gets the message across loud and clear.
Gold lame isn’t just for Christmas. AW16’s metallics are sticking around for the season ahead, only they’re migrating from the dance floor to the daytime. Brighten a dull January with some subtle shimmer, adding a chunky knit to balance out the glamour with just a hint of the ordinary. The silver pleated skirt has become something of a wardrobe staple and the style more often reserved for festive soirees will keep you ahead of the curve when recycled with a black polo neck and heeled ankle boots.
Seeing the world through rose tinted spectacles isn’t hard in 2017, with various sugary sweet shades of pink sweeping the rails. Fuchsia reigns supreme, with powder pink and raspberry bubblegum hues added for good measure.
