Bristol Fashion Week SS17 trend report: Experimental

Style It Out

This is less of a trend and more a general movement in fashion towards a more individualistic way of dressing. Gone are the days of wearing a head-to-toe catwalk look, now it’s all about mixing and matching your pieces (whether designer, high street or vintage) in a new and original way. Spearheaded by the super-bloggers, keen to flex their fashion muscles and show their credentials, this new way of dressing allows creativity and imagination to shine. Unexpected layering and pairing, customising and brave accessorising are key so think outside the box and be fearless- there’s no wrong moves here!

Fun footwear

River Island £50

These River Island sandals shouldn't work but they do! 'Ugly' shoes are just the thing for this look. After Christopher Kane sent Crocs down the runway, all bets are off and anything goes in the footwear department! Wear now with ankle socks for a truly editorial take on the trend.

Layer up

Topshop £36

This skirt ticks the denim trend but the unexpected paring of the tulle layer moves it in to experimental territory.
Set yourself apart from the rest of the fashion pack and create this look yourself by layering sheer dresses over short.

Slogan Chic

Calvin Klein @ John Lewis, £35

Slogan t-shirts are everywhere for Spring and are a great styling tool for this look. Show your personality with a political slogan or go for a vintage brand like this Calvin Klein gem, Layer under evening dresses for an unexpected daytime look.
