See the latest straight from the runway!

The Bench Fashion Week Holiday 2017 just concluded and we're still on a high from the event's immense energy and inspired sartorial swings. Below, we summarize the trends we spotted to help you take note of the emerging styles en vogue this season. Read on!

1. Detailed Denim

Plain denims are a thing of the past. This time around patched, cuffed, raw, embellished, and stitched with other fabrics are the way to go. Don't be limited to jeans, though. Your denim jackets and tops definitely need an upgrade, too!

2. Fringe

Now here's a fun detail to add to your wardrobe basics. Add some flair to your step with some fringe. It can be as subtle as Banggo Niu's, as grand as Rhett Eala's, or something in between like Pio Pio's; whatever the case, you're sure to stand out! But if you're sporting the trend for a whole day, you may want to dial it down a bit by pairing it with more casual pieces like a denim (as seen at Pio Pio) or bomber jacket. Reserve the full-on, dramatic fringe for a more dressy gathering.

3. Head scarves

Scarves aren't just made to be tied around your neck or on your bags. They're this season's hottest hair accessory! Learn from these brands and elevate how you wear your scarves. Wear one tied across your forehead, pushed back like a headband, or as a ribbon atop your head. Headscarves are effortless and wearable accessories you can easily take from day to night.

Here's more proof that preppy dressing is back. See how Bench and Kashieca made it work for strappy heels and pumps? Borrow the heels and socks styling technique from the Koreans and lend a surprising element to your footwear. But if you're unsure how to mix prints with your heels, that's alright. Just match your socks to your footwear and voila, you've got yourself a DIY sock boot!

Apart from florals, ribbons provide a subtle, soft, and feminine touch to any outfit. Tie one under your collar or around your waist, but make sure your fabric strips come in bold colors to make them pop against your outfit.

6. Stripes

Stripes are the talk of the town this season. What started with banker stripes has now evolved into something bolder and louder. And we're not complaining! We all know stripes have the ability to add inches to your height when worn right!

7. Tiered Ruffles

Statement pieces are every fashion girl's best friend. And this season, we're thankful for designers who understand our need for grandiose volume! But you don't have to stick to tiered skirts, sporting them on your sleeves is a fresh way to wear the trend. So whether you're into printed paradise, statuesque tiers, or prefer to let your sleeves do the talking, Bench Fashion Week officially cemented tiers as a detail to delve into!
