2017 may be a new year, but it is also the time for new trends to be introduced in the fashion world. 2017’s new fashions are about to bring on a few changes in our wardrobe. As observed in many fashion weeks that took place all over the world, designers have begun modifying the fashion of last year to be more colorful and playful. Let’s see if these trends will last or fade away as quickly as they were brought back.
Some designers are bringing it back to the ‘80s by incorporating bold colors, animal prints, and ruffles in their new clothing lines. Many of the designers believe that this is going to be the biggest trend of 2017. Along with that, stripes seem to be the best next thing, especially multicolored stripes. Roopal Patel from Saks 5th
Avenue says, “Stripes are equivalent to what a white t-shirt used to be back in the day.”
The fashion world also has been moving further away from making and promoting formal attire to sell and make more casual and comfy clothing. For example, heels are becoming a less popular footwear choice amongst many women, since many would rather wear flats and shoes that are much more comfortable to walk in. The days of uncomfortable heels and dresses will soon be long gone; we are at the forefront of a new era, the era of comfort. A new style of “athleisure” is becoming more popular because women prefer to wear more laid back and cute attire.
Designers are also trying to revamp the classic button down shirt look by extending the sleeves to create a new off the shoulder look and exaggerating the “shirt dress.” This may be one of the trends that won’t last very long in the fashion world because of how difficult it might be to wear on a daily basis.
In the world of accessories, long pendant necklaces are making a comeback. Designers are using these necklaces to pull together outfits. This new trend may be the one that will replace the choker necklaces that were very popular in 2016. Along with that, exaggerated earrings are exploding all over social media and are expected to become popular.
The fashion world is quite volatile and is always changing. Let’s see what 2017 actually has in store for fashion and also see which of these trends last and which fade away. We’ll also hope to see what trends continue to take over the fashion world.
