Fashion Trends 2017
A Must-read Guide for the fashionista!
Fashion trends change rapidly and that what keeps things interesting! Each year brings about its own signature trend that eventually becomes the prevalent style. Let us review the fashion trends that mark the current year.
Mule shoes are in high fashion. Comfortable and classy- it is a must have style for working women. Flat mules, low block-heel mules, heeled mules—mules in all fabrications and colours including velvet, satin, canvas, and embroidered ones have caught the international fashion scene’s attention this year. Designer mules are the perfect go-to shoe for an instantly glamorous uplift and can work well with any piece from long skirts to cropped trousers, a flirty flowing dress or even shalwar kameez!
Sneakers will continue to be extremely popular this year. You can never have too many. Glitter, leopard, and satin updates to sneakers effortlessly dress up a casual outfit and give you a reason to buy multiple pairs. They will lift up any outfit you wear with casual trousers, jeans or tights!
Stripes are the most wearable trend this Summer. Bright, bold, fat or thin, stripes are all over the map. Whether they turn up on playful skirts, fitted blazers or slim pants, the effect is fun and flirtatious. They’re on everything from funky bags to glamorous evening dresses and will get you lots of admiring glances. A favourite of many top designers, both horizontal and vertical stripes were spotted on the runways including Rag and Bone, Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler and Adam Selman. They can be a girl’s best friend; especially vertical stripes which help make legs look longer and a slimmer body. Dress the stripes up with heels by night or pair it with trainers during the day. Don’t accessorize too heavily. Cut back on the jewellery – one piece, such as a bracelet or a statement pair of glasses will do.
Corsets had such a huge moment last year, but we don’t see designers continuing this into 2017.
A change is coming in the denim world. Skinny jeans with stretch have reigned supreme for a long time but we anticipate a shift toward contrast denim styles in vintage silhouettes.
Heels four to five inches or higher have been a trend that we have seen rapidly decrease. Women nowadays are way more focused on comfort and practicality and value investing in a shoe that is both stylish and comfortable enough to walk or commute in which is why there has been such an increase in demand for sneakers and low block-heels.
