We are more than a month into 2017 and the fashion world has already seen some trends that will continue to make a statement this year. Although we have less than 11 months left of this year, I am almost certain that the pieces mentioned below will make it into your wardrobe before we ring in a new year. Keep on reading if you are interested in learning about some of the trends that have been turning heads so far.
You heard me right – micro bags are one of this year’s hottest trends. The only problem with micro bags is that on first glance they seem incredibly useless – what can you use them for, other than carrying a lipstick and maybe one stick of gum? But many designers paired them up with larger bags, meaning that these micro bags are used more as money purses and an accessory to your larger bag. Carrying two handbags can seem a little counterintuitive and unsafe but if you attach them together then not only will you be on trend, but you’ll also make sure that you never misplace either of them.
Statement jewelry never goes out of style. Whether it is the year 2016 or 2017, you can bet that accessorizing is always on trend. The way to rock this look is to always remember to not over accessorize. But with strategic styling, you can always make sure your women’s jewelry game is on point. From incredible statement necklaces to delicate rings, you can add jewelry to any outfit to make yourself look immediately ten times better and more put together.
Alleluia for the return of comfortable footwear! Now, we no longer have to wear ugly running shoes or strange misshapen fake Uggs in the quest for our feet to be perfectly comfortable – instead we can follow in the footsteps of Instagram-to-Vogue models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, and step into some comfortable Adidas Originals with a massive sigh of relief that we aren’t trying to cram our toes into pointy heels. If you want to go really old school and channel the early 2000s golden punk pop era, then you could go for some Vans or Converse, which are coming out in a series of more and more attractive styles including rose gold, which brings me to the next trend.
It’s true – somehow rose gold is still in style after a good year of it being on top. These days it’s moving more towards home decor, clothing (check out Katy Perry at the Grammys) and accessories. A cross between copper and silver, it adds a pleasant warmth to the metallic goods in your life. Go for a rose gold rain coat, rose gold shoes, and a rose gold metallic shimmer on your eyelids – you’ll look glossy, feminine and slightly astronaut-like at the same time, which is, of course, the best combination in the world. Although you probably shouldn’t wear them all together because too much of a good thing is very possible when it comes to rose gold.
