Spring summer 2017 is all about taking a fashion risk, switching up your usual look and stepping out of your comfort zone, whether it's getting dressed for your morning coffee run, or for the important spring social occasions like birthdays, weddings and the Spring Racing Carnival. The season is full of clashing prints, shimmering metallics and pops of summer brights and asks questions like, "why on earth can't we wear metallics during the day?"
Although it might seem daunting to step away from your trademark looks for a while (or add some colour to your wardrobe!) one easy way to try something new is 'trend swapping'; taking a trend you loved in the past, and giving it a slightly more courageous spin for this season. Think of it like taking baby steps toward your new fashion-forward approach.
Still not sure? You can run back into the safe arms of the original trends, which are still going strong right through 2017.
