Happy New Year people! Trust you had a restful time during the holidays. I’m glad that 2016 has finally left us after almost choking life out of us. On the fashion scene, chokers and bare shoulders were the order of the day in 2016, however
and fortunately, experts say that while some trends from the past year will be retained, we will be seeing many new fashion trends in 2017.
If trends are your thing, it would be a wise decision to cop some of these trendy pieces ahead of the fashion year!
Here are the trends to expect.
Last year was no doubt, the year of bare shoulders. This year however, we will be seeing statement sleeves on pieces including jackets, dresses and tops.
Power shoulders will also be making an appearance this year.
Athleisure: Like in 2016,this will continue to be trendy this year.
Shirt Fabric: Stripes and Gingham will be a thing this year.
Beige pants: Beige pants and khaki will be more in style than skinny denim this year, so stock your wardrobes.
Tees With Logos: Activism will make an appearance in fashion this year as logos, emojis and embellishments will be featured on tees.
Colored Suits: For men, colored suits will be a big deal this year.
Dungarees: Thanks to celebs like Chance The Rapper who was seen wearing dungarees many times last year, experts say that overalls will be more widely accepted this year.
Women are getting more concerned about comfort and gradually leaving shoes with heels above 4 inches behind for mules (sneaker mules, heeled mules, espadrille mules), kitten heels, low block heels, sky-high platforms, crocs and embellished sneakers.
Accessories, Bags & Others
Colored Hair: When Kanye unveiled his unnatural colored hair look last year, most people thought it was one of his ways of dealing with depression, till Olamide dyed his hair too.
Now we know we will definitely be seeing a lot of people with unnaturally colored hair this year.
Layered haircuts will also take centre stage this year.
It is also believed in many quarters, that pink will be a big deal this year, although Pantone says that greenery is the color of the year.
Like with pastors’ prophecies, not all of these trend predictions will come to pass, however, we look forward to those that actually will!
Which trends are you looking forward to?
