Trends That Are Set to Blow up in 2017
It's never easy planning outfits for today, never mind trying to plan for next season! To help you decide which trends and looks are worth a bit of extra time and investment next season, I’ve pulled together a few noteworthy pieces gracing the Instagram feeds of all the big industry insiders. From statement stripes to cropped sweaters and daytime metallics, here are a few predictions of what will be big in 2017...
Black is the New Black
You cannot go wrong with black. 2017 is set to pay homage to this majestic, timeless, ageless, slimming, forgiving, comfortable and 100% trustworthy color. We're not talking about more LBD's (little black dresses) hitting the high street, more little black everything. Let your inner 16-year-old My Chemical Romance obsessed self out with ALL black outfits, accessories, and make-up. It's time to perfect that smokey eye, girls.
Many fast fashion trends come and go, but statement stripes are one thing you can always count on, season after season, year after year. Whether you embrace bold pinstripes for the ultimate power woman statement or go all psychedelic with bold technicolor, stripes going to be huge next year.
Say hello to a wave of ’80s flavor that's running through loads of 2017's collections Think super vivid color and loud neon hues offering a not-so-subtle alternative to the more tradition block colors.
Don't go throwing out all those 'cold-shoulder' and 'off-the-shoulder' tops just yet. But, be prepared for a new silhouette you’ll definitely want to hear about. One-shoulder necklines are set to be huge in the new year. The architectural lines are show-stopping on their own, but just take a minute to think about the endless layering potential. Yes, please.
All Cropped Everything
Forget skimpy crop tops and cropped tank tops. 2017 is all about the cropped jumper. We're loving this relaxed, street look - chiefly because it's so comfortable! Clothes you can sleep in AND wear all day? We'll have twenty.
Yeah, you read that right. Skinny Joggers are ALL the rage right now, and it's a trend that is set to keep growing in 2017. The sports luxe trend is huge at the moment because everyone wants to be able to look on-trend and fashionable, while also been hugely comfortable and relaxed! Tailored or 'skinny' joggers will be everywhere next year so keep your eyes peeled!
We've seen a few hints of this creeping through this year, but in 2017 this trend will definitely blow up. Think all-over embroidered boots, bomber jackets, and handbags. Floral designs and Aztec prints will dominate, keeping in fresh and vibrant.
While pastels have been big this year, it's been all about block color and accessories. 2017 will, however, see the introduction of pastel prints all over the catwalks and the high street - and we're not talking about pretty florals. Think intricate graphic designs and pop-art-esque shapes.
Boots to boot!
2017 is going to be THE year for boots - in particular, the block-heeled mid-calf ankle boot, (a bit of a mouthful, we know). Think about adding the wow factor with your footwear by selecting boots that are the focal point of your outfit. Crushed velvet, bright patent, and tassels will all feature heavily.
The time has FINALLY come for your to reach out to your 15-year-old self and let out some of that teenage angst... Why? Because the raver pant has officially returned! The preferred garb of noughties-child ravers and class-skippers, this iconic pant has received a muchly deserved refresh on the runways, and it set to make 2017 it's year! Team up with your cropped sweater, embroidered handbag, and patent boots and well, you're 2017 ready.
Feel like you're ready now? 2017 is set to be a whirlwind of fashion faux pas revivals! This means that that ludicrous, joseph-and-his-technicolor-dream-coat inspired blouse that you've been too embarrassed to wear out for the last few years can finally join your everyday wardrobe. The socially unacceptable will soon become the envy of all your friends, so try and let go, throw caution to the wind and just. wear. it.
