The schools breaking up signals the start of summer proper but it is impossible to ignore the tempting whispers of the new season trends that are slowly edging their way onto rails. It’s a process that begins quite slowly at first, an accessory here or a dress there, then before you know it autumn/winter pieces have infiltrated spring/summer stock entirely, tempting you to take a look at what we will all be wearing in a month or two’s time.


The first flurries of new season stock bring a sense of anticipation for any fashion lover. It seems just weeks ago that AW17 styles were sweeping the runways and now here they are, ready and waiting to transform your wardrobe for the season ahead.

It’s never too soon to shop, so here’s a peak at the new season trends set to steal the spotlight this coming season. Which ones are on your wishlist?


Chris de Burgh is no ordinary muse but ‘Lady in Red’ must have been on every fashion designer’s playlist last year, because the fiery shade is big news for AW17. Taking the hue into the new season means going full throttle, layering your look in a single shade and contrasting with one colour clashing accessory. Expect to see all red everything on the street style stars come September’s fashion weeks.


Cinched silhouettes are poised for a comeback, with wide waist belts set to whittle waistlines this winter. Accentuate womanly curves with slender belts or add a little swerve to svelte silhouettes with wider styles.


One of the trends set to ruffle feathers in AW17 is posh plumage. Marabou, ostrich, peacock; take your pick. All that really matters is that your eveningwear is worthy of a bird of paradise.  


New season Boutique Moschino brought with it gold studded leather looks that we just can’t get enough of. From a Moss-style mini skirt to a wear forever leather shift dress, your rock and roll tendencies are well taken care of with autumn/winter’s luxe leather trend.


Showing you mean business is easy this season, thanks to sharp suits in various shades of grey. There’s even talk of Prince of Wales checks making a comeback but we’d rather leave that element in the eighties. Instead, look towards MaxMara and ESCADA for a more modern, feminine take on the power suit trend.
