5 Style Trends To Watch Out For in 2017
So, 2016 just ended, and along with it a plethora of fashion trends that were big on the scene. But in 2017, we’re all starting anew and it’s time to scour the closet and racks to find the right items to match the styles of the day. Who wants to be stuck in last year?
There are many trends set to make waves this season, but here are five in particular you may be seeing a lot of. Get ready to make the switch.
Goodbye, Athleisure. Hello, Athluxury
Remember the laidback, relaxed sporty style we all loved in 2016? Well this year, designers are raising the bar higher. Put away those sport tops. In 2017, you'll be seeing a lot of sporty, but country club-inspired apparel that’s defining workout wear with a sophisticated twist. They're not calling it athluxury for nothing. Tory Burch is leading the pack with Tory Sport, an elevated athletic clothing concept line. She’s getting a run for the money, so to speak, from other sportswear favorites, including Under Armor, the fave brand that recently collaborated with Tim Coppens, and Outdoor Voices, which enlisted A.P.C. to help with its deluxe workout wear.
Pink is the new black
The ultimate It Girl color continues to reigns supreme this year as accessories and beauty products gleam with the bright, bubblegum shade. You might be seeing the world in rose-colored glasses — literally — as brands like Gucci, Céline and Valentino are all unveiling a fresh assortment of pink styles for spring.
Platforms are still fashionable
We all love our sneakers,; but it's time to switch gears and go for something fresh. And flat. Platforms were hot items a few years back, but designers are bringing the style back to life with new, bigger embellishments and brighter colors. We adore the sky-high loafers from Gucci and the square-toed shoes from Balenciaga. And look out for many interesting, irregular platform designs that will soon hit the market.
Sleepwear x Streetwear
Celebrities like Jessica Alba, Beyoncé, and Kendall Jenner were caught boldly sporting their lingerie last year, smartly overlaying thin camisoles on top of turtlenecks and tees, or just wearing the slinky pieces on their own. This year, it's all about robes. But a word of caution: make sure you know how to make this trend work. You might like the sexy fabrics, but you may not always need to look like you just stepped out of a boudoir. Styles from Dolce & Gabbana and Natasha Zinko have captured hearts so far, and. corsets are also coming back to life, here will be unique ways of wearing them over your shirts and dresses, not under. So, take note!
We’re back in the 80s, ladies
Statement shirts, washed denim and extravagant ruffles are looking like they are going to take over in 2017. Women can still enjoy a strong hint of androgyny, thanks to boxy, structured tops that will soon replace last year’s romantic off-the-shoulder pieces. And preppy khakis, slouchy trousers and power suits are on deck to take over workwear. To make a statement, arm yourself with over-the-top baubles like long earrings. The bigger, the better. That sounds ancient, you say? Well, some fashion trends never go out of style. Neither should you.
