Fashion Forecast for 2017

Fashion Forecast for 2017 by contributer Rosie Arkell-Palmer, fashion assistant at AnOther Magazine

1. SATIN
Welcome satin to your wardrobe; velvet's sexy younger sister. Ditch the pyjamas, this trend is glam: ruched tops, ruffled dresses and maxi skirts in jewel tones. If in doubt look to Sies Marjan's spring/summer '17 collection for a how-to guide. 

  H&M , £24.99

H&M, £24.99

2. ORIENTAL
For some escapism, look to the exotic styles of the East. Wear vintage silk kimonos over jeans, shirts with bell sleeves and oriental embroidery on anything and everything. 

  Attico , £1,140.00

Attico, £1,140.00

  ASOS , £85

ASOS, £85

3. CHUNKY HEEL
We're stomping into 2017 with a chunky heel, elegantly balanced out with a slender ankle. If this green snakeskin pair from make-up artist-of-the-moment Isamaya Ffrench's collaboration with Finery are a little too out-there for you, then dip your toes into the trend with this classic black pair from Spanish footwear favourites Uterque.
