8 Fashion Trends to Look Forward to in 2017


1. Stripes and more stripes
You might think there is nothing new or trendy about stripes but my dear friend you are wrong. Stripes were LIT on this year’s runways! These little guys can make or break every outfit – from a preppy nice girl to a classy business woman, whoever you chose to be today.


2. Small purses
Forget those bulky backpacks we carried around in 2016 and downsize to necessities only. Tiny purses are the new large backpacks – hop on board! The smaller the better. And let’s face it: we carry around so much unnecessary stuff all the time! Give yourself a little break this year.


3. Sneakers
Your feet are about to have the best year of their life. Sneakers are the talk of fashionistas this year. So many companies stepped up their design game in 2016 and will be going strong all through 2017. Watch out world: we are on our way to a chic comfort!


4. Geometric designs
You and I both have at least one friend who got a geometric tattoo last year, am I right? Well, fashion is following this trend and is making it its own. Geometric and asymmetric prints and designs are crazy in this year! Make sure to pair it up with simple tops/bottoms in order to keep the focus on the pattern.


5. Pink
Ladies! The time has come for our pink souls to rejoice. This magnificent color is all over the runways – we can’t get enough and we don’t want to. Incorporating pink in your jewelry or clothing will make your inner (and outer) fashionista pop! It is easy to overdo it with a bright color like pink so stay sane and balance your outfits out.


6. Off the shoulder tops
Taking its start in 2016, the off the shoulder top is still going strong in 2017. More bold choices of off the shoulder tops have been spotted on the runways and well, they are stunning. The elegance of the open shoulders paired with fine jewelry can not be beat. What do you think?


7. Block heel
Let’s hear it for comfort one more time! Some seriously cute block heeled shoes were spotted on the runways and all we can say is YES! Whether you like simple designs or busy shoe tops with stones and trinkets – you will be totally comfortable walking around on your 2-3 inch block heel this year.


8. Khaki
Dust off your dad’s old jacket because khaki everything is back. We have to admit – we missed it. Add some subtle color (a little bit of pink maybe?), accessorize, and rule us all! Make sure to put a lot of thought into accent pieces – khaki tends to ‘wash’ away the skin color and the world needs to see our beautiful faces.
