trend-predict-featured 2017 is here at last,  and with the New Year comes a new season of trends. 2016 was the year of 70's inspired runways, pleats and strappy lingerie dressing, but what will 2017 be remembered by? The team here at LBD decided to share our trend predictions for this year's hottest trends to give you a head-start.

1. Jumpsuits

Virgos Lounge Arch Jumpsuit in Black Thanks to a certain Ms. Clinton, we predict that power dressing will be back with a vengeance this year. What better way to stick it to the man than in trousers? Shop jumpsuits.

2. Bright Blues

Paper Doll Crochet Lace Dress in Metallic Blue We've been noticing a lot of pastel and bright blues on the catwalks this season, so we anticipate primary colours to be out in full force throughout 2017. Shop bright blues.

3. Molten Metallics

Alesha Dixon Knot Dress in Gold The metallic trend we saw creeping in at the end of 2016 is here to stay, well into the summer of 2017. It seems that everyone can’t get enough of the sleek silhouette and looking like you’ve just been dipped in molten metal! Shop molten metallics.

4. Ruffles

LBD Collection Selena Velvet Bardot Dress Victorian influences ruled the catwalk for the SS17 season, and those ruffles are trickling down to the high street ready to rule the summer season. We love ruffles for adding a stunning touch of volume to your outfit. Shop ruffles.

5. Sheer & Embellished

Honor Gold Ruth Cocktail Dress in Black Nothing makes a simple dress look more expensive than embellishments. Simple sheer dresses doused in delicate beads and sequins are the perfect way to make an impact during those long summer evenings. Shop sheer and embellished.
