Very 2017 (statement pieces).
We know: You’re not quite ready to give those over-the-knee boots and button-front skirts a break. But the new year is the perfect excuse for some fresh outfit inspo, so we thought we’d lend a hand. Here, some trends you’re guaranteed to see in 2017.
Nope, this isn’t your nana’s applique. We’re talking traditional yet modern stitching on everything from jeans to blazers that creates a pretty, folkloric vibe. We have florals on denims, blouses etc. Pair your floral jacket with black skinnies and with blouse. Up this look with ankle boots or dress it down with a pair of sandal.
From bright new hues to eye-catching embellishments, these aren’t your typical walking shoes. Think of these fresh kicks as a welcome upgrade to your plain white sneaks. (And don’t worry: You can still wear them with just about everything). Pair your fancy sneaker with a shirt dress for a laid back look or you could go sporty by pairing this sneaker with a pair of joggers and tennis jacket.
Asymmetrical hems and frayed edges made a splash in previous years, but they’re sticking around in a big way. In your next shopping trip, opt for vintage high-quality denim that frays nicely, rather than super-stretch polyester skinnies. For a casual day look, pair your raw-hem denim with a stripped buttoned-down shirt and sneaker.
It’s no coincidence that this trend comes hand in hand with the rise of bodysuits, which are perfect for layering under these see-through fabrics. Sheer dresses, tops and skirts are all having a huge moment, and bound to keep heating up well into summer. This is one statement piece every girl/lady should have at the moment. Depending on how you choose to wear this, pair your sheer top with skinny jean and a chunky heel sandal.
Of course, we all wear these in private, but sweatshirts are now making a statement in public as an outfit anchor. Wear one (preferably without chocolate stains) atop a pleated midi skirt or tucked into a pair of high-rise pants for the ultimate cool-girl ensemble. The sweatshirt creates a sporty statement look when pair with metallic pleated skirt and ankle boots.
Move over, matching sets. The new year is all about switching it up, and what better way than rocking two contrasting pieces?
