It's becoming increasingly exhausting differentiating between men's and women's wear trends, considering designers couldn't be bothered to, and rightfully so. The gender lines in fashion have long been blurred, and while these trends came off the runways of Menswear Week, they are perfectly good for women to rock too!

Remember when Bonang stepped out in this?

Many on social media thought the Quiteria & George creation was by Cape Town designer Mzukisi Mbane of Imprint. We can see why....

Imprint's collection was dominated by stripes, prints, checks and bright colours, something echoed in collections by other designers and brands including Nicholas Coutts where the checks were the name of the game...

It's a clear indication that these trends are here to stay, but if you're looking for something perhaps more adventurous, there was also the shimmery fabrics, bold and bright colours, presented by the likes of Nao Serati, as we pointed out last weekend, as well as the gang at Rosey & Vittori...
