Welcome to 2017 and the hottest new fashions across the country. From head to toe, department stores and fashion boutiques have you covered. Here is a look at what will be big on the streets in 2017 and even a trend or two that will be kicked to the curb.
The Bubblegum Shades
Although the color pink made a prominent mark in accessories and beauty products in 2016, it isn’t stopping there. In 2017, pink will be steadily making its way into your closet and dresser drawers. Brands like Valentino, Gucci and more feature an assortment of rose-shade fashions for spring. Some designers are even presenting their fashion show models in various shades of pink from head to toe.
Khakis Take Over Skinny Jeans
Some say that skinny jeans are on their way out and that khakis are the new denim. Some designers do offer khakis in various styles as Alexander Wang gives them a slouchy feel while Marcus Wainwright, of rag & bone, has a slightly sheer and preppy look. Workwear inspired khakis filled the 2017 fashion runway shows making them a popular choice for many occasions. However, you can bet that skinny jeans won’t go without a fight and may very well march into the fall shows.
Stripes are Everywhere
Stripes are a popular trend for 2017. Stripes have been a favorite print for both designers and consumers. The fashion director of Saks Fifth Avenue, Roopal Patel, claims they have nine lives and will continue to carry forward. Striped fashions can be found in all sizes and colors this year. This totally wearable trend ranges from slacks to knit dresses to chunky sweaters and oversized shirts.
Eye-Catching Footwear is Back In
Crazy prints and embellishments are the new shoe fad for 2017 as classic clean sneakers are not exciting anymore. Fashionable updates to sneakers include glitter, leopard and the satin look. In addition to printed sneakers, the highly-embellished remake of Crocs is growing in popularity. Crocs are viewed as the chosen footwear for professions such as chefs and nurses.
Athletic Wear Inspires
Spring 2017 is looking to hold the title of “easy elegance” according to Bloomingdale’s fashion director of ready-to-wear, Brooke Jaffe. Jaffe says the overall influence of athletic-inspired pieces will continue to be popular. Several designers have jumped on the trend with sporty athletic gear for casual days including Tory Burch. Burch’s assortment of elegant, yet country club-ready, athletic apparel are already turning heads thanks to her mix and match prints.
