We have rounded up the key autumn/winter 2017 trends that fashion editors will be wearing this season. Take note – and you’ll look like you’ve just stepped off the front row.

Baker Boy hats

Along with the beret, the Baker Boy hat is having something of a moment. Use it to give a fun twist to your day-to-day ensembles.

Feathers

Feathers look set to be one of the biggest trends of autumn/winter 2017 – and there’s no way chicer to tap into the trend than with these Prada heels.

A checked blazer

Balenciaga might have started the heritage suit trend but the checked blazer has now taken on a life of its own. Swap your denim for this refreshing outerwear this autumn.

White heels

street style trends

Elegant white heels were definitely the shoe du jour on the New York Fashion Week front rows. From Céline to Tibi, keep it glossy and simple and Colgate white.

Cowboy boots

street style trends

From Calvin Klein to Miu Miu, cowboy boots were a big hit on the catwalk last season and they now seem more wearable than ever before. Choose darker hues to prevent the look feeling overly Western and wear with skirts and dresses rather than jeans.

A high-necked chunky knit

street style trends

An easy and very cosy trend to cash in on this season. Wear chunky polo-neck jumpers with floaty skirts or skinny jeans and statement accessories.

String bags

street style trends

While basket bags are still in favour, the humble string bag is the one to be seen carrying now. The best bit? You can get in on the trend for less than you’d pay for a cup of coffee.

Corduroy

street style trends

If you’re bored of your denim, this is the trend for you. Corduroy was seen all over the catwalks of Prada, Marc Jacobs and Mulberry – and we’ll be wearing ours from head to toe.

A bum bag

street style trends

Whether you style yours across your body, around your waist or sat on your hips, the bum bag is definitely a great way to update your look for the new season.

A slouchy suit

street style trends

Trouser suiting is going nowhere fast and this season, it is all about loose-fitted, slightly oversized shapes. Wear bare now and with polo-necks come winter.

Street style star Pernille Teisbaek on her Instagram-worthy wedding and how to master Scandi chic

To say stylist, street style star and co-founder of influencer talent agency Social Zoo Direct, Pernille Teisbaeck, has had a busy 2017 would be an understatement. So far the stylish Scandinavian, who has over 489,000 followers on Instagram, has had a baby, got hitched and published a book (aptly titled Dress Scandinavian: Style Your Life and Wardrobe the Danish Way) and there are still four months of the year to go. ”We’re also renovating our house,” she tells The Telegraph, ”so it’s been a crazy year.”

Teisbaeck married partner Philip Lotko in a seaside ceremony on an island off the coast of her native Denmark in as picturesque a setting as you would expect. And the dress, which was a pearl-laden Vera Wang gown, was equally as beautiful. But despite her impeccable taste, she says that choosing a wedding gown wasn’t straight forward. ”I was already pregnant last year, so the crazy hormones went into my mind and I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to wear or how I wanted to look,” she recounts.

So how did she eventually land on the dress of her dreams? ”I was looking at all these different blogs and Tumblrs, and I found this dress,” she remembers. ”I wasn’t sure if it was from an old collection, but I found out that it was Vera Wang and current, so I contacted her straight away and asked her to make it.”

Teisbaeck paired the exquisite embellished creation with custom Manolo Blahnik shoes made from the same material as the dress, and wore her hair pulled back into a loose tousled bun at the nape of her neck – emanating the type of nonchalance, typical to Scandi style, that she’s known for.

On the subject of why she thinks Scandinavian style has gained to much traction in recent years, Teisbaeck accredits an ”effortless chicness” and to it being ”wearable, comfortable and classic, and not particularly seasonal.”

”When you look at Italy or Spain for example, women dress themselves in a much more feminine, sexy and colourful way,” she continues. ”And the way we dress ourselves is slightly more androgynous. There’s something about not showing your boobs or your butt that is kind of appealing because there’s something left to the imagination.”

Teisbaeck, who is often in jeans and an oversize blazer, or a pleated skirt and a chunky knit, has mastered the art of looking simultaneously elegant but comfortable and polished but laid-back. ”For me it’s about feeling super comfortable in what you’re wearing, and then you have that ‘glow’,” she describes. ”When you put something on and go out the door and you’re insecure because the dress is too short or the pants are too tight, you just don’t have that same ‘glow’.”

What are her top tips for tapping into her strain of Scandi style? ”Less is more,” she says. ”When I think my outfit has too many things going on, I will look at myself and take something off to make it a little calmer.” Although that’s not to say her ensembles aren’t dynamic, with her use of delicate gold jewellery (she’s a fan of Copenhagen-based designer Sophie Billie Brah), a chunky gold watch which she inherited, and one of the myriad pair of jazzy earrings she owns pepping up even the simplest of pieces.

You need basic things in your wardrobe like a white T-shirt or a well-fitted blazer

”And, go for the basics,” she continues. ”Even though I wrote a book on this I’m not very good at it,” she admits. ”You need these basic things in your wardrobe like a white T-shirt or a well-fitted blazer. Nobody wants to buy them because it’s boring, but then you end up with a wardrobe where nothing really works together.”

Teisbaeck also adheres to the adage ‘quality over quantity’, twice a year embarking on ruthless wardrobe clear out that sees the things she hasn’t worn in recent months culled.

As a street style star, Teisbaeck is often spotted sporting the latest offerings from her favourite designers, but she’s not short of praise for the high street, namely H&M, which she says is brimming with good knitwear and basics. ”Lots of these high street brands do really good quality things,” she says. ”I love that you can get cashmere and good silks and it doesn’t need to be The Row or Céline.”

The style maven and fashion plate also seeks out second hand bargains. ”Never before in my life have I bought so much second hand clothing,” she tells The Telegraph. ”I shop for it mainly online from places like Vestiaire Collective – they have amazing pieces that you can spice up with something that’s more current, and then add something basic and then you have a good mix of everything.”

She also advocates ”never closing down a trend,” citing mom jeans as one of things she swore she’d never wear but that is now a key player in her wardrobe. ”Right now I’d say I’d never wear neon, but I’ve learnt not to shut down a trend, because you will probably end up wearing it at some point.”

Artistic Shoes Were Street Style Favorites for NYFW Spring ’18 Shows

The kickoff (pun intended) to fashion month has commenced with New York Fashion Week where many major shoe trends are still underway. A blitz of style influencers, from editors to bloggers to fashionistas and more, hit the city’s streets in impeccable footwear, showing that trends like denim boots, socks with sandals and pink shoesare all still hot. Art-inspired shoes also made a lasting statement among the street style stars, with designs from the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci leading the pack.

Dolce & Gabbana’s jewel embellished sandals which were spotted on a guest feature ornate detailing reminiscent of Rococo art. The colorful print — in bold red, blue, yellow and green — was inspired by the majolicas, or painted pottery, from the town of Caltagirone in Sicily. One attendee wore metallic blue Gucci heels with spikes dotted around the entire shoe. The gold pointy studs are both edgy and artsy, while the shoe’s kitten heel is right on trend with the season’s new favorite.

And for another guest, it was still about wearing socks with sandals though their shoe selection simultaneously hit the art-meets-feet idea. The “Bella” yellow patent leather sandals by Frances Valentine featured a jeweled geo heel that lent a distinctly creative aesthetic.

New York Fashion Week is officially in full swing. From our list of “It” items to watch, we’re already checking off a street style favorite: plaid blazers. The fashion crowd swapped their leather moto jackets for a more polished form of outerwear on Thursday, and we loved the varied approaches to styling the fall must-have. We spotted an hourglass-shaped design by Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga, as well a belted-at-the-waist technique for a similar silhouette. Other showgoers opted for a two-piece set in plaid, from a fitted-jacket-and-skirt combo to a super-oversized ensemble with hints of floral details for a cool contrast. If you don’t already have a plaid blazer in your wardrobe, consider this visual proof that you need one ASAP.

Stockholm Fashion Week SS18: the strongest street style
