The Buyer Takeover: 5 Trends You Need To Add-To-Bag on Black Friday| November 22, 2017
Black Friday 2017 is about to take off. As part of our Buyer Takeover, we give you a heads up on what threads you need to be buying into RN. With over 1000 styles added onsite every week, you might go a little crazy when flash sales and discounts happen over the weekend through ’til Cyber Monday. It’s fine though babe, panic buying on Black Friday is inevitable.
We caught up with Buying Manager, Rebecca Smith. This boss gal trials new concepts, executes new ideas and signs off product on the Tops, Bottoms, Denim & Jeans departments. To make the cyber rush that little bit easier, Rebecca gives us the lowdown on the 5 trends, along with handpicked styles, that are hot right now. You can thank her later!
Red to Toe…
This trend was huge on the AW17 catwalks from Fendi, Roksanda, Giambattista Valli to Alberta Ferretti. This is not about using red as a highlight or flash of colour, instead it’s about matchy-matchy red worn head-to-toe – the bolder the better. After all, red isn’t just reserved for Christmas.
All The Stripes
Stripes are always in style but recently they have taken on a new bold in-your-face personality with strong colour blocking influenced by the PJ dressing trend. To make this really easy to wear I would team the wide leg striped trousers and duster jacket with a graphic t-shirt and trainers.
This look can be really versatile as it can be worn with a bralet and heels for an evening look too. Stripes are also going to carry through as a big trend for SS18 so they’re worth the investment now.
Think Metallic Dynasty. Head-to-toe sequin dresses, soft liquid metallics and bold shoulders inspired by Gucci, Pucci, Saint Lauren and Michael Kors. The perfect Christmas look to make you want to party hard. Clash your textures using faux fur or faux leather to really take hold of the 70s trend.
SS17 was a warm up to the tailoring trend that has been huge for AW17. From Prince of Wales checks, military details to clean cut blazers, your busy lifestyle is covered. This trend should be part of every girls’ 9-5 dressings.
Sports luxe has been a supermodel wardrobe staple for a while, sported by Kendall, Gigi and Bella – and it’s going nowhere fast. You only have to look at Tommy Hilfiger, Versace and Fenty Puma. The options are pretty much endless with this trend.
