Formerly the fashion and beauty director at Marie Claire, and now fashion director at, Kelly Fung, is an authority on all things fashion-focused.

“Always in trousers? Give it a go in a pleated skirt, in a daring glitter fabric of course.

“Now’s the time to really experiment, the bolder the better, because why not? It’s celebration time.”

And what should you be wearing to ring in the new year?

It doesn’t matter, because the biggest trend of 2018 is you. Fung says it’s all about individuality.

“2018 sees a continued embrace of identity and individuality; it’s

about really expressing who you are through what you wear.

“Rather than specific trends, designers and fashion houses have been exploring inclusivity of skin colour, age and sexuality – this social consciousness has been seen from catwalk to checkout cart. In short: it doesn’t matter what you wear, as long as you’re sporting the real you.”

Luckily, with an even bigger product offering for next year at, expressing yourself will be easier than ever.
