Here’s our end of year trend wrap-up, featuring the looks we’ve spotted again and again in 2017. When the style set tired of winter layers, they opted for slinky slips instead. When that cold weather hit again, they didn’t stop – layering slip dresses with sweaters underneath and vinyl coats atop.2017 was the year that plaid blazers became the unspoken outerwear rule of fashion week attendees the world over. Fitted, cropped, oversized, with shoulder pads – we saw it all!Power dressing this year was all about embracing a head to toe hue, and red ruled. Those not quite ready to go red all over opted instead for statement blazers or leather-look red trousers.Who would have thought a tourist favourite would become a top trend for 2017?
