2016 has been a fabulous year in terms of fashion and style. But now that 2017 has already begun, we should be looking ahead and thinking about new trends that will define fashion this year. We compiled a list of 10 fashion trends to watch in 2017, and we really think some of them are going to get quite popular. So check them out and see if they suit your taste.
10. Ankle Boots with Chunky Heels
In case you don’t know, Louis Vuitton was the first to introduce ankle boots that had really chunky heels. The trend spread like crazy and all the designers started following suit, making the chunky combat boots a must-have in every fashionista’s wardrobe. You can pair them with your favorite jeans to feel fully dressed-up. Or if you want to feel a bit edgy, you can wear them with an elegant dress.
9. Tops That Go Off Your Shoulders
Yes, we’re talking about those off-the-shoulder tops that sit right above your cleavage and show off your rounded shoulders and seductive collarbones. The trend started off quite some time ago, but we’re not yet ready to let it go, as it still makes for a great occasional style-switch when you’re looking to wear something different. You can either go with solid colors for such tops or choose unconventional textures and knits to stand out.
Though many people consider it out-of-trend now, but chokers can be a great accessory to add flair to your looks. It’s one of the most versatile accessories that you can wear with many different dresses. May it be a t-shirt or a party dress, a choker will add a bit more definition to your overall style and give you that extra edge.
7. Graphic Tees
No, we aren’t done with graphic t-shirts yet. There are times when you simply want to get a little rocker look instead of going all elegant or chic. That’s when a graphic tee will save your day. You can pair up a graphic t-shirt with leather pants or jeans for a casual look, or wear them with a mini skirt. Complete the look with chokers and chunky heel ankle boots and you’re all set to rock the party!
6. Military-inspired Dressing
This trend isn’t very new, but it’s catching on faster now than any other year. There are lots of options to choose from when it comes to military-like dressing. You can pick up a double-breasted coat tailored especially for you, and you can choose some great sailor-front pants. Striped tees will look great when teamed with bomber jackets. You can experiment with different looks to find the one that suits you the best. Having at least one type of military look in your wardrobe will do.
5. Statement Jackets
Have you ever gone out under-dressed just because you couldn’t decide what to add to your look? Well, if you are someone who doesn’t need too much confusion, statement jackets are the way to go. These head-turning jackets add that extra oomph and attention to the rest of your clothes, making heads turn when you go out into the crowd. Wear a plain t-shirt and jeans, and then put on a statement jacket to know how quickly it changes your look from plain to chic.
The mule is the one shoe trend that you definitely need to follow this year as it’s going to be one of the biggest fashion trends of 2017. You can choose anything from flat mules, heeled mules, espadrille mules to low block-heel mules and sneaker mules. They come in all shapes and colors with canvas, embroidery, satin, and velvet options too. The half-loafer, half-slipper mule is a must-have this year if you care about fashion.
If you want to follow a fashion trend that has been tried and tested, you cannot go wrong with striped looks. Stripes, when you wear them properly, give you a modern and smart look and make you stand out from the crowd. Just like you can’t live without a white t-shirt and blue jeans in your wardrobe, you should also not forget to add some striped clothes to your collection. The trend has been here for three seasons now and will continue.
The trend of long pants with super-wide legs was first seen in the 60’s, but the fashion industry picked it up again in the recent years. Palazzos have made a really big comeback, and every fashion-conscious girl has got at least one in her wardrobe. Palazzo pants are light, comfortable, and very versatile. You can wear them with shirts, tees, and what not. Choose your look.
Sneakers have been and will remain one of the trendiest items in your wardrobe for some time now. Reason? Well, sneakers are easy, versatile, comfortable, and effortless. You can buy multiple pairs and still not have enough, as they are now available in leopard, satin, and glitter looks too. Sneakers give you that outgoing, casual look when you need it.
