Never mind the Balenciaga ‘Triple S’ trainers, which are sold out everywhere. Consider this: would your Dad actually wear them? Because that’s the criteria all so-called ‘Dad’ trainers (or even Grandpa trainers) should be judged by and we’re not sure that the streetstyle favourites previously mentioned fit the bill. After all, there’s nothing understated about them, they’re chunky, and truth be told,  they probably fit into the ‘ugly’ sneaker trend just as well. But besides the 80s and 90s nostalgia of them, they are undeniably comfortable and an delightfully subversive addition to a dress that will garner compliments.


So if your Dad won’t wear those, what will he wear? We’re imagining simple, and most importantly, unisex styles so you can give the phrase ‘Daddy’s girl’ a sartorial twist with a matching pair of your own. Like the ever popular Stan Smiths that Phoebe Philo chicly revived which were named after the male American tennis player of the same name; or the Gazelles creative types seem to wear uniformly in their favourite or most versatile colour. And speaking of versatility, a neutral colour palette will maximise wearability. And if your Dad, like mine, wouldn’t be seen dead in a pair of sneakers; wear the trend in his honour.

Some trends grow symbiotically. Take peanut butter and jelly, or a cinched waist and statement sleeves. Ever since the waist became defined the shoulders and arms became big, puffy and oversized to exaggerate the silhouette. The statement sleeve has taken centre stage both on the catwalk and on our Instagram feeds. Early adopters include Leandra Medine sporting Rosie Assoulin's signature oversized sleeve tops. 

This season the trend expanded to the masses, from balloon to billowing and bell-shaped the impressive sleeves this year a offered in great variety to suit all tastes and arm sizes. For an uber romantic aesthetic head over to Roksanda Ilincic who presented elegant feminine dresses embellished with aethereal bell sleeves. Ellery focused on length rather than volume while Balenciaga and Jacquemus showed exaggerated 80's puffer sleeves. Over at Gucci, Anna Sui and Simone Rocha the interpretation was dramatic balloon sleeves. Thankfully we can now find most of these styles from high street brands like Zara Topshop and Mango without breaking the bank. 

Although a summer trend the statement sleeve is an absolute winner for this season. It can instantly lift any old boring wardrobe item by giving it depth and volume. It also is quite cleverly elongating and thus complementary for any figure. So unless you're prone to dip your sleeves into your dinner - statement sleeve tops and dresses will be one of your favourite purchases of the year! 

Check out our exclusive edit of the best statement sleeve items on the market this season!

Lyst just released the most popular brands of 2017! Think of the brand that made fashion news every single day of 2017. Yes, it’s Gucci! Gucci was the most searched brand in Google too… Consumers searched Gucci more than the regular terms ‘shoes’ and ‘skirts’.

This year's S/S trends are full of colour. The bold, blocked out coats and lavender... well just about everything is set to be lavender. Balenciaga is known for bold and bright prints and the label's footwear is no exception. The sock boot has been on the scene, and streets, throughout winter and unlike many poor soles it won't be shoved to the back of the wardrobe for summer. Balenciaga here is a perfect example of how the sock boot will transition into summer. Bright, floral (groundbreaking) and chicly stilettoed. Dreamy. Image: Balenciaga

As a marketing tool Balenciaga have used the help of paparazzi for their SS18 lookbook. The photographs perfectly capture the brand in all its glory, revealing reality which itself achieves perfection.

Demna Gvasalia is unstoppable! From the Ikea inspired bag to Triple S sneakers, whatever he designs becomes instantly viral. During the menswear fashion week, Balenciaga sent a bag solely made from shoelaces down the runway. Seriously, just shoe laces! Gvasalia always finds a new technique or trend and I’m guessing, this year it will be shoelace bags! Coming with multi and black colour options these bags have a price tag of $2,650. Wether you are willing to pay this much for a shoelace bag is up to you, but these will totally be the hit of 2018. #shoelaces #bag #balenciaga #demnagvasalia #design #trend #fashionweek #style

We’ve got Scotland on the brain today because it’s Burns Night and it just so happens that the kilt is a key skirt shape for Spring Summer 2018. The former is a celebratory day in honour of Robert Burns, who’s regarded as Scotland’s national poet and the brains behind ‘A Red, Red Rose.’ Which is as good an excuse as any to indulge in a little haggis or a couple of hot toddies tonight. Take a look at the Balenciaga’s runaway show back in October. Iconic Scottish model Stella Tennant strutted out in an oversized stripe shirt, hybrid boot/leggings and the real star of her outfit? The tartan skirt in between, embellished with a silver charm belt. More polished than punk, even in Creative Director Demna Gvasalia’s progressive world.  


The kilt is traditionally a menswear garment, made of a clan’s unique tartan, with a sporran (purse) on top and nothing underneath. But the skirt has understandably crossed over into womenswear with a few tweaks of its own and a rebellious attitude thanks to punks and grungers appropriating it. Now you can find a kilt in a range of fabrics, patterns and colours, and then you can pick your ideal length and placement of pleats/leather straps. Mini lengths do still bring Catholic school-girls to mind, but also cult ‘90s film Clueless; while midi lengths are look-at-me elegant. And with checks never really out of style, you’ll wear your kilt year after year. 

Check out the gallery above for kilt styling inspiration and then shop your favourites from our edits of top picks below.

Any trend that doesn’t really require ironing gets an extra thumbs up from us. Enter ruching (ruche), defined by Oxford Dictionary as a decorative frill or pleat of fabric, which sometimes has a drawstring attached so you can control and adapt it. You’ll remember the horizontal pleats (creases?) and fabric gatherings that took centre stage on the most memorable dresses in Pretty Women and your favourite ‘80s films. And for good reason because they showed off the wearer’s figure to mouth-opening effect, creating covetable curves. Ruching is one of Dolce & Gabbana’s bombshell signatures, while Kim Kardashian-West wore a sheer ruched minidress to the 2016 VMAs which spawned countless copycats. Balenciaga’s Creative Director Demna Gvasalia has given the technique a revamp, and most importably for our wardrobes, real daytime appeal by using it in his recent collections. 


We’re most taken with ruched dresses, rather than tops, because they are winning one-and-done outfits. They’ll help you flaunt the fabulous figure you’ve been honing at the gym in a more notable, fashion-y way than a basic body-con dress. Whether the decorative detail is confined to the bust, employed to whittle your waist like an infinitely more comfortable corset, or all over: modern styles come in all lengths, shapes and colours with barely a whiff of the ‘80s. You can cover up or go sheer (visible underwear is another key micro trend, by the way, that Bella Hadid is owning) and the silhouette created will wow. Perfect, then, for any Valentine’s day dates you'll have coming up; during the day or after dark.  

Shop your top picks from our edit of ruched dresses available now below.

The day I fell in love with Balenciaga I was in his home town. My friends and I had ventured to the small fishing town of Guetaria for pintxos, wine and the Cristóbal Balenciaga museum. His life across San Sebastián and Paris and oh those dresses. It was meat to be. It was love. Image: Balenciaga/Elle

One of most popular items of last year was the fanny pack rounding up to 57.000 sales! There are few reasons why the fanny pack has made such a notable comeback. The retro accessory which had received such a faux-pas connotation in the past, got a resurgence when male icons started sporting it: from Kanye West to Virgil Abloh and A$AP Rocky. 


Female fashion influencers like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and fashion editors such as Lisa Aiken donned Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Balenciaga fanny packs in multiple street style snaps. The truth is the 2017-18 version has little to do with the dad on vacation look of the 90s. The packs are worn cross-body instead of around the waist with many designer options as well as high-street offerings. By all accounts, fanny packs are selling out like crazy and have yet to reach their peak. 

Head to our gallery for more fanny pack inspiration and shop your favourite styles from our expert edit below!
