Off-the-shoulder tops and athleisure everything may have dominated our closets in 2016, but what can we expect in 2017?
We’re not exactly mind readers, but thanks to the designers’ Spring ’17 runways, we can paint a pretty clear picture of the next year in fashion. These looks set the pace for the new year, and it’s going to look a little different from the style world as you know it.
Prepare for bolder prints, more frills, and some serious wardrobe disruption.
Here are the top 5 fashion trends we’ll be indulging in this year:
This year Pantone selected Greenery as the official 2017 Color of The Year – so expect to see the colour everywhere! Greenery has already made appearances on the Spring 2017 runways, standing out in the collections of designers like Gucci, Kenzo, Bagelencia, Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and Cynthia Rowley.
As the new year kicks off, it’ll only be a matter of time before the beauty and interior design industries start picking up on the striking green hue, so get ready to reconnect with nature in 2017 and have fun styling this delightful fashion trend.
You can never have too much pink in your closet, and rose-colored everything is making a huge comeback in 2017. Brands like Céline, Valentino, Gucci, Loewe, and more sent out an assortment of rose-hued ensembles for spring 2017, solidifying the color’s “It” status among the fashion set for many more months to come.
Not two, but one! This year Asymmetry is bang on-trend, and there is nothing sassier than showing a little shoulder. Shoulders were the go-to for Spring 2017. If a designer had a chance to show them off, they took it.
From off-the-shoulder tops to shoulder cutouts to asymmetrical necklines seen at Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler, JW Anderson and Simone Rocha – it felt like no runway was left out of this trend.
We’re calling it: pleated skirts are one of the biggest street style trends on the scene right now. Championed by Alessandro Michele at Gucci and worn by bloggers, influencers, editors and celebrities alike, everybody seems to be in love with the pleated skirt.
From refined midi lengths and fluid fabrics to eye-catching metallics, these skirts are fun, flirty and a cinch to dress up or down. Best of all? They are perfect for office wear!
Athleisure was a major trend in 2016 and if, like us, you loved this trend bringing the worlds of style and sports together, we have good news for you… Athleisure is going nowhere. YAY!
All your sporty basics is still on trend. This year though, designers are adding a luxurious twist. Yes, Athluxury is the new Athleisure.
In 2017 it’s all about wearing your athleisure basics in unexpected lush textures, colours and silhouettes. Indulge in a plush metallic sporty bomber jacket or team your NIKE Roche or Stan Smith sneakers with a beautiful feminine sheer skirt. Add a touch of lux to your athleisure look and you’ll be right on point.
2017’s fashion trends have stylists, buyers, editors and everyone else super-duper, spin-around-your-closet excited. So, let your imagination roam free this year, style your outfits with audacity and cheek.
But most of all, HAVE FUN!
