Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) can be held and dusted for 2017, but it will also inspire us in the months to come. In particular, the trends on the streets outside of the shows will affect wardrobes and outfits this winter. So if you want to have a stylish season, then look no further than Sydney for inspiration. From bright yellow reflections and contrasting monochrome looks to the new must-have shoes and statement sleeves, these are the top trends at MBFWA ’17. Invest in them now and your closet will keep you chic every cold day this year.
1. Pops of Yellow
This MBFWA was full of sunshine and we’re not talking about the weather. If a touch of color was needed this season, the street style kit turned yellow to help. The light shade emphasized many stylish outfits with a playful touch and caught everyone’s attention. Happy, vibrant, and fun, the color was an unexpected departure from the neutral and whimsy tones typically seen this time of year. Of course, the bold hue required balance, and as such appeared best when confined to a single, meaningful piece of clothing.
A touch of yellow can be a great way to add some energy and life to your outfits this season. All you have to do to hit the look is to orientate yourself by the stylish ladies from MBFWA who rocked it. Instead of opting for dresses, skirts, pants, or tops in yellow, follow their instructions and focus on sweaters, jackets, and coats. The invigorating shade highlights these pieces even more than usual and becomes the focal point of your outfit. Remember to keep the style minimal, e.g. B. a simple raincoat or a puffer jacket so as not to detract from the attention for the sunny shade. Likewise, the rest of your outfit should be more casual and reserved. Jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt, sneakers and a shoulder bag go perfectly together.

2. Bomber with statement details
While blazers and leather jackets always have a place in our wardrobes, at the moment everything revolves around the bomber. The military style jacket has established itself as a must have for the past few seasons and continues to be one of the most popular types of outerwear. This season, the style shone again as many women took to the streets in the garment outside of MBFWA. Of course, they weren’t the same old bomber jackets we’ve seen a hundred times. These bombers featured meaningful details that enhanced their looks and increased their fashion sense.
By investing in a bomber jacket with eye-catching details, you can look as chic as Sydney’s top street style stars all season long. All you have to do is pick the perfect one for you. Choose between styles with eye-catching details such as embroidery, patches, rivets or contrasting colors. For a great trend look, keep an eye out for bombers with lace-up details. The unexpected element is utterly chic and a great alternative to colorful and bold embellishments. When you’ve found your perfect bomber, rock it all season. You can wear it with anything from jeans and boots to a dress and heels, as long as the color matches.

3. Sock boots
When there was any doubt that the sock boot was the most popular new shoe trend in fashion, MBFWA put it to rest. The chic shoe was in effect at Fashion Week and looked incredibly stylish the entire time. If you are new to the shoe style, a sock boot is a hybrid that combines a boot with a sock. The result is a snug, stylish boot that adheres to the ankle for a super slim and flattering look.
Sock boots are the perfect boots for winter and ideal for evenings. In addition to being incredibly chic and flattering, these boots are comfortable and keep your feet warm. Rock them for your next cocktail night and you won’t regret it. Remember, these shoes are meant to be flaunted, so don’t cover them with long patterns. Instead, pair them with a medium length dress or short pants. The little flash of skin on your shins balances the look and helps define your stylish sock boots. Also, keep your silhouette a little loose to complement the ultra-slim look of these shoes.

4. Episcopal sleeves
The bishop’s sleeve may be hundreds of years old, but it is a perfect match for MBFWA 2017. The sleeve, which spreads out in a cuff towards the wrist before folding, was spotted on dresses, shirts and tops all week. The voluminous and meaningful style was a must-have outfit feature that worked well with both daring designs and more understated styles.
Like the 2016 bell sleeves, bishop sleeves are a fun fashion trend that anyone can wear. They can also go with a number of looks including casual, formal, and sometimes even office attire. It is therefore seriously worth investing in this versatile trend. To get the most out of your runner sleeves, simply choose a shirt in a neutral shade. This way you can wear your new, trendy top with jeans, pants, skirt or slip dress.

Minimalism is far from dead, and while yellow bangs were popular at this year’s MBFWA, so were monochromes. The trend brought things back to basics on the streets of Sydney last week, favoring simple blacks and whites over everything else. While the look could be achieved by combining white and black clothes, the street style put preferred pieces that included both hues. Whether it was a white blazer with black lapels or a black dress and white shirt, the monochrome designs looked sophisticated and chic.
While anyone can rock black and white from head to toe, doing it in style requires some thought. Look for pieces that convey a particular style rather than just picking pieces that combine the dark and light hues. If you prefer a feminine and classic aesthetic, go for a lace design with contrasting trim. However, if you prefer a contemporary look, consider designs with a sharp silhouette and more noticeable contrast.
