With the prevalence of Instagram, trends have found a way to be prominent in little fixtures in our everyday lives. It’s almost like we can’t escape them, but that’s not exactly a problem since some have absolutely stolen our hearts. I’m not a strictly trends person because I feel that personal style comes from how you interpret fashion, but that doesn’t stop me from indulging in the ones that are irresistible. Here I count down the biggest trends that are making waves for SS17. Take a good look and even scoop a few of the goodies that catch your eye.
Stripes are the universal trend that can be worn with anything. It’s as much of a staple as solids are in your closet as it can dressed up and down. Stripes give you that classic look, but it can also be quirky and fun if styled the right way. The best of two worlds.
Mules are the perfect everyday shoe since it can me worn all day long. It’s also a great day to night transitional piece to have in your arsenal. They give you that effortlessly stylish look that every woman yearns for. Slip them on with a pair of jeans for a more casual look or a stunning dress for the night time.
Nothing is better than a statement jumpsuit! This is another wonderful day to night piece that can be worn with flats or sandals during the day, then with a sexier heel at night to turn things up. It’s perfect to sport to multiple occasions, brunch, meetings, dinner etc, and it takes the hassle out of getting dressed as its one stunning piece to slip on and go!
OFF THE SHOULDER
This trend is probably the most prevalent trends at the moment. You can find it in so many different styles and textures. It’s great for those spring/summer days when you want to show a little more skin. Pick up the style in a top and/or a dress and you’re good to go. It’s definitely a staple everyday piece that’s going to have longevity in your closet.
If you’re someone looking to add a little drama to your look, then Bishop sleeves are definitely for you. The trend, reminiscent of a Bishop’s robe, is a great way to stand out from the crowd. There are also less exaggerated styles for those of us who may be a little intimated. Pair this trend with some killer trousers or a sleek skirt and you’ve got yourself a major look.
Matching sets are probably my favorite trend that’s happening right now. Flaunting this look is such an effortless way to kill the style game without looking like you’ve tried too hard. You can go for a printed set or a bold solid color set. Either way, you’re going to be gaining major style points.
There’s a chain strap over-the-shoulder bag for every girl. They come in so many variations which make this trend easy for anyone to pull off. I especially love chain strap bags because it pulls together any look and gives your outfit a delicate touch that is very flattering.
Every girl needs a slip dress in her closet! These silky numbers are the perfect solution for finding something easy to wear when you “have nothing to wear”. I love that they can be worn casually as well as dressier. It’s great layering piece and is just right for those days when comfort and style is a priority.
Who doesn’t love a bold color?! Statement colors are for the girl who isn’t afraid to create a moment and wants to share her cheerfulness inside and out. These daring garments are an important part of every fashion girl’s wardrobe because it adds an element of surprise to each look. Besides, wearing bright colors is a confidence booster and that’s always a good thing. If flaunting all bold colors is too much, then you can sport it in little doses here and there throughout your outfit. Think pops of color in your shoes and accessories.
FRAYED HEM JEANS
You can’t go wrong with a pair of frayed hem jeans. This trend is having a huge moment right now and rightfully so. It adds a spark of quirk and joy to every look and it’s super easy to wear. There’s a great range of frayed hem jeans for the daring and classic woman. Grab a pair!
