Fashion - May 2017 Image

By Khiara Elliott

The Autumn Winter Fashion Weeks have given us insight on which street styles are in and which ones are out.

Here are five of the top street style trends picked out by fashion heavyweights Vogue, Elle and InStyle.

1. Fishnet stockings

Personally, I feel that the fishnet trend is a little done but it seems the style isn’t going anywhere with designers stepping it up a notch with fishnet socks and shirts.

Try something different and go for a larger gap style stocking to really draw the eye.

2. Sports luxe

Dubbed “athleisure”, the cross over between comfortable and stylish will continue to dominate throughout the cooler months.

The next big staple piece is set to be stripes – think the big stripes down the button down track pants of your youth. They’re making a comeback.

3. Wide belts

Another style that was big almost a decade ago is returning in 2017 – the wide, wrap around belt. Cinching is a trend that will never die and the return of the wide, tie up belt is a testament to this. The corset waist is on the way out to make way for a more modest way of accentuating the figure.

4. Fur coats

Here at Docklands News, we are all about the faux. Firstly for the protection of animals, secondly because faux is a whole lot more affordable!

Find a coat reminiscent of old Hollywood and make your winter glamorous. I picked one up for $30 from H&M!

5. Mules

Another trend that seems to be here to stay, but this one I’m not mad at. The mule is a simple and elegant shoe that can be paired with almost anything. Whether they’re for work or just to chuck on with your jeans, stock up again this season on a staple pair.
