New year, new trends. I like to focus on the future instead of the past, so I’d rather not dwell over those awful sneakers or that not so flattering shade of matte lipstick we have bought in the spring of 2016 that we thought we would rock everyday. It’s in the past, and the future is there for a good change, so don’t be afraid of trying out new make up or updating your wardrobe with different materials and styles. I am sure everyone will find something amazing from the new trends that they will fall in love with and inspire them to try out new things and step out of their comfort zone. New year does not necessarily have to mean new me, since I love a lot of 2016 trends, like contouring, velvet strap dresses and metallic details and I would like to keep wearing these for the upcoming year aswell. However I am very keen on wearing new accessories, jackets, shoes that will be loved by everyone in a few months. So I decided to put together a post where I gather some of the best trends we can look forward to in 2017!
The last few years I have noticed, that most people started wearing black to “represent their soul”, but I am 100% sure that everyone has some fun and goofiness in them that they could show by wearing vivid colors instead of the boring, dull black that makes everyone blend in. 2017 is the year where we can all spice things up with these colors and maybe even match them with the seasons. For example during spring you can wear pastel colors and leave the dark greens or blues for autumn and keep the eye-catching, happy colors until summer. Personally, I like to wear colors because I do believe in the energies they give throughout the day. I have experienced that when I wear a full black outfit I am much more exhausted. On the contrary, wearing a bright red jumper, or a green blouse fills me up with positive energy that radiates off of me.
To be honest, I have always been a huge fan of stripes, and I do own a fair share of stripy tops that are my daily esscentials so I am only glad that they will design more in different sizes, width and colors. Allthough many stylists say that horizontal stripes make you wider, but who doesn’t want to break the rules and wear a good navy striped dress? I sure as well do. I advise you to try on a striped piece of clothing and then decide if you feel comfortable in it, rather then listening to nonsense. Plus this detail is a great way to wear on those days we don’t want to wear any jewelry, because stripes themselves are a great look.
3.Floral all the way:
Florals have started to come already back by the end of the year since I have already picked up a few items for Christmas. They came in different patterns and colors which describes my personality well, in addition it brings back the 60’s style when everyone liked to dress the way they wanted to and be careless without anyone judging them, so why not live such a happy era again in 2017? It also reminds of festivals and the summer which I would gladly accept in this horrible winter. A great floral dress could be worn for a BBQ party with some friends or for a romantic walk by the seaside with your beloved one. Play around with this pattern, you won’t regret it!
Since Obama’s visit to Cuba last year, a big influence is about to start. Cuban people will finally be able to break out in fashion as well. This had already gotten many designers to create pieces that have inspired them from the Caribbean country using many bright colors and looks that make Cuba so special. I can’t wait for summer to wear these chick looks that are really original and have a great aesthetic. We can thank Cuban women for wearing and creating an amazing style.
We have already gone through the off the shoulder tops, but why not upgrade? These looks are much more special and unique with only showing one shoulder by the sleeves hanging loose, or the neckline is cut different to show off the shoulders in a new, sexy way that we hadn’t worn before. These can be worn very fashionably with a simple black pair of jeans, making a statment by a great design, or you could pair it up with a leather skirt for a night out with the girls. A blazer that has the right amount of padding in the shoulders can also give you a better posture making you look more confident, just make sure not to go overboard with it, because it can take away the femininity from your look.
I wish you a very happy New Year with tons of loveale fashion pieces!
