The air might be heavy with the remnants of 2016 but the times have very much moved on. With the arrival of the new year comes the chance to start afresh, wipe the slate clean and move on to something different. While 2017 has yet to unveil what kind of a year it might shape up to be, you can get ahead of the curve and figure out how your immediate environment might look over the coming months. These fashion trends are set to make big news in the coming year, changing the way that we dress for every day of the week. Take note and start getting some inspiration; you’re bound to be picking up these looks before long!
Pretty in Pink
Pink just had an update. Gone are the days of sugary sweet shades and flushed florals; now, the color is as chic as they come, offering a much needed boost of brightness into your everyday wardrobe. From the SS17 runways right down to the high street, pink has popped up in collection after collection, offering a playful take on everyday neutrals. There is a shade of pink out there for every type of complexion and whether you’re a fan of bright colors or prefer something a little more muted, you will find the tone to work for you. 2017 is most definitely in the pink.
Bold and Bright
Nautical stripes have had their day; now, it’s all about bold, ‘90s inspired lines. Sporty stripes are going to be a big thing for the months ahead, transforming the most basic of clothing options into items with attitude. Bold, primary colors have dominated the world of stripes for the upcoming season, adding serious edge to the traditionally refined style. If you’re feeling really daring, go ahead and mix and match your stripes; the bolder you go, the better.
We’re not talking sweatpants and hoodies here; sportswear has been given the luxe treatment for 2017 and now, it’s doing serious style business. Athluxury is a big deal this coming season, blending the effortlessness of your sports gear with the elegance of a tailored suit. Think slouchy suit pants, loosely tailored jackets and luxe sweats. Adding in bold pops of color here and there will only elevate the look, making your outfit really stand out from the crowd.
Making a Statement
Of course, 2017 isn’t all about the clothes. If you’re a fan of sporting a bold, costume jewelry piece, this year is going to make you really happy. The coming months are all about statement earrings and cuffs, making the accessory the most important part of any outfit. Over the shoulder, up the ear and eye popping pieces were seen across the runways last year and now, the glam look has filtered down to the high street. Get out your costume jewelry pieces and layer them up. When it comes to this trend, more is most definitely more.
While florals and spring time seem to come around every year, 2017 has something of a different take on the look. Gone are the days of delicate, feminine prints; now, florals are back in a much badder guise. Taking inspiration from the mod looks of the 1960s, 2017’s florals are bold and bright, finished off in statement color combinations and a variety of sizes. Whether you’re a fan of the small print or are in the market for something a little bolder and brighter, there is bound to be a style out there to meet your tastes.
Blow It Up
Enhanced sleeves made an appearance towards the end of last year but in 2017, they’re back in a much bigger guise. Taking influence from the shapes of 1980s catwalks, this season’s sleeves are voluminous and pumped up, making a statement all on their own. While mutton sleeves, bell sleeves and bishop’s sleeves might look like a hard style to master, they are a great deal more wearable than you might have thought. Give your basic top a sleeve statement and ease your wardrobe into the coming months.
