Well admit, this is a tricky one to pull off in most situations: work Meetings, weddings and meeting the parents for the first time, to name just a few. For our modesty’s sake, we’re going to be wearing this one loose and layered over another dress or outfit. Easy, right?
Get the look: Layer a sheer midi over a sleek playsuit for your new go-to evening look.

Earn Your Stripes
A trend that both Adidas and Tony the Tiger undoubtedly approve of, fashion’s favourite pattern is having a real moment in 2017. This season bolder is better, with bonus points for mixing colours, shapes and sizes.
Get the look: Think big and supersize your stripes – this isn’t a season for keeping it subtle.

Some said it wouldn’t happen… but it has. The decade that forgot fashion is finally in fashion and it’s time to channel your inner (icon?). Think one-shoulder ruffles, nipped-in waists and more metallics thank you thought possible.
Get the look: The 80s trend works well for eveningwear so add some sparkle to your Friday night.
