Off-the-shoulder tops and frayed denim may have reigned supreme last year, but 2017 is a new year and that means a whole new crop of fashion trends. Before you hit the stores to start your spring shopping, take a look at what fashion insiders are predicting to be big this year.
The athleisure trend isn’t going anywhere, and either is your comfort. Style them with your favorite denim or dress up your outfit with a pair of satin sneakers. If you’re into the more casual route, take inspiration from the Band of Outsiders runway show above.
Mules came back into style last year and they’re here to stay for 2017. Whether you have your eye on flat mules, heeled mules, or even sneaker mules, you’ll be right on trend this year.
While images of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde probably just popped into your head just reading this title, don’t worry this year’s color palette is a little more subdued. Brands like Céline, Valentino, Gucci, and Bottega Veneta all sent a pretty rose colored hue down the runway signifying that this color is here to stay.
4. Statement Earrings
Big and bold earrings, (we’re talking even past your shoulders) are the accessory of choice this year. Toss out last year’s choker trend and opt for some glam earrings instead.
While stripes never really go out of style, this favorite print is getting a revamp. Instead of your classic striped boat-neck tee, we’re about to see bold, bright, and textured stripes on dresses, knits, and tees.
6. Bras As Shirts
2017 is all about bras coming back into the spotlight. No more hiding under your tee, this year bras are your shirt! While you can definitely make this look less Madonna and more Victoria Beckham, it’s best reserved for a date or a night out with the girls.
7. Strong Shoulders
Remember those 15 off the shoulder tops you bought last year? Sadly, this silhouette has been replaced with strong architectural shoulders mirroring the 80’s (without the shoulder pads of course). For some inspiration check out the Balenciaga and Saint Laurent’s Spring 2017 shows.
8. Statement Tees
Remember when graphic tees were a thing? Your typical graphic tee has gotten an update since junior high, and no longer will we see “whatever” emblazoned on the front. This year tees are going political and girl power is the reigning theme.
