2017 is here and I am so excited for that it’s ridiculous. I’ve had my 2017 diary sitting here just waiting for me to fill it up with all the exciting things I want to get up to.
But I digress.
Today’s post is all about the fashion trends you should be expecting to see (and perhaps try) in 2017. Now you know from my Brightly Black days that I write about trends to inform you and not to guide you. You do not always have to follow every trend that comes out (and I mean these days some of these trends are a tad bit ridiculous to be practical anyway lol).
I write this post to let you know what to expect in fashion in the upcoming months, and if you are a trend-follower and want to always stay trendy then go ‘head girl! Do your thing and make the streets your runway. Just make sure that you are following trends for your own happiness and not necessarily because you feel pressured to look trendy. Okay, now that I’m done with my Oprah speech let’s get to it.
If you aren’t a huge fan of stripes then I’m sorry to inform you that stripes are going to be a major thing in upcoming moths. Big, bold and defined stripes are coming in all colours of the rainbow in 2017. I am personally looking forward to this trend. My wardrobe palette is so neutral that I feel like a healthy dose of extravagant stripes will help make my outfits pop a little.
Yes, yes, yes! I’m all for this trend. Being a person that’s afraid of colour I will gladly participate in this trend. Though I honestly do not feel like neutral colours should ever be considered as trends, to be honest. This trend reminds me of the 2016 utilitarian trend I wrote about before if you’d like to read more on that visit the post here.
Neutral colours to me are timeless, so if ever there was a trend that we should all participate in it’s this one. Khaki is one of those colours that will match with absolutely everything else you have in your closet and so if you are looking for a versatile colour that won’t leave you wondering what on earth to match it with, this is it!
I put florals and neutral colours in the same boat. Neither one will ever stop trending so they shouldn’t be considered trends in the first place in my opinion. But yes, expect a little more floral than usual this coming year and expect florals to come back with a little more femininity than usual too.
If you thought sheer clothing was one of those trends staying in 2016 then think again. I’ll admit that I am a bit afraid of how far people are going to take this trend, oh boy!
The 80’s is back! The one-shoulder, off-shoulder, cut-out-shoulder trend is going to be very prevalent in the following months. I will admit now that this is one trend that I am going to find really hard to fall inlove with. I can’t wait to see how my favourite fashionistas take it on and make it their own.
White Shirt Dress
The shirt dress! I already have a small collection of shirt dresses I have been gathering up through the years so I am super glad I will be able to rock them in 2017 without looking like I just walked out of the early 2000’s. I encourage everyone to try out this trend. Shirt dresses are easy to transition from day to night and look great on absolutely every body type.
Robes being a super trend in 2017 comes as no surprise. We have watched sleep/loungewear slowly creep into everyday/normal clothing for a while now and this seems like a natural progression.
Pink seems to have been dominating the runway this year and will be hitting the streets in 2017. From pretty, soft pinks to saturated fuchsias pink is going to be challenging the ever-trending nude and neutral colours this year.
Waist cinchers are also another trend I had assumed would stay in 2016 but surprise surprise!
