6. THE CANADIAN TUXEDO
Consisting of a top and trousers both in denim, the Canadian Tuxedo was evident on the runways of so many designer brands, including Celine and Brandon Maxwell. Net-a-Porter has bought into the separates, as it expects its clientele to wear it in the same way.
The mini has taken a bit of a back seat to midi hemlines for the past few seasons, but after Versace opened its show with not one, not two, but three minis, it's safe to say thigh-grazing frocks are back. Net-a-Porter agrees, with 300 styles set to land starting in the New Year.
