30 street style moments that defined the year
Wait, we wore what again?
Strength by strength, hoodies and sweats have proven indispensable. This year, the logo you opt for couldn’t be more crucial.
That fine line between dowdy and supreme layering. Dress-over-jeans will always be one of fashion’s greatest mysteries.
We don’t mean to be biased, but Balenciaga indeed has had a flagship year.
It’s not too late to trawl your mum’s closet for those vintage kitten slingbacks...
Kids. Supreme. Need we say more?
The beret never really went away, but it sure had a stellar showing in 2017.
We won’t go as far as to say that it’s the year of Irene Kim, but between the model-personality really blowing up and, dressed in arguably the biggest trend...
When ugly officially won over the hearts of many.
Just about the strongest contender for collab of the year.
We admit: When the fanny pack earned it’s cool cred, we weren’t too bummed about it.
The only way to do knee high boots were if they were skin-tight. Scratch that, sock-like.
And we’re all still blind for Lallo, AKA Alessandro Michele and his Gucci Gucci.
You already know about pink. How about blush on pink?
We want a vacation too. Or at least a camp-collar shirt in a dope ass print.
Even kids get Balenciaga, alright?
Now Teva-looking sandals are socially accepted. Only with socks though. (Yes, we know those are actually Pradas)
Not just Teva-esque sandals with socks, but heeled ones too.
Some call it the death of Supreme’s street culture, others, a toasty down jacket.
Thought 2016 was the year of elongated sleeves? In 2017, they were groundbreaking.
Sock sneakers, triangle bags. What did we say about Balenciaga owning the year again?
When we thought statement sleeves couldn’t get larger, Marques’Almeida gave us this pleated wonder.
If not pink, then fire engine red.
When fashion officially stole the Puff Daddy moniker. Sean Combs who?
Presenting the oversized blazer and the demise of the LBD.
We asked, you voted. All in favour of the Off-White belt that trended as a neck strap at Seoul Fashion Week.
Skinny came back in a big way. For sunnies, that is.
The Burberry check is back. Back again.
A look at the monumental and blow-up style sightings of 2017
They say a lot can happen in a year, but whoever "they" are have probably yet to dabble in the fashion of now. In a span of 366 days, the dress-over-jeans ensemble and kitten heels of the '00s had successful homecomings. Socks became indispensible to sandals before moving on to commandeer sneaker silhouttes — only, to rise up further making sock boots a thing. Ugly ousted chic with one triple-soled kick, while pink returned all grown up, banishing black. The kids wore Balenciaga, while adults embraced snap-off pants.
You get our gist: It’s been a whirlwind of brand spanking new trends, and the old becoming covetable again. So from fronting bum bags, triangle top handles, "chav" checks to championing sweats and logo-slapped collabs, the year's street style milestones in a nutshell above.
