For a number of reasons, 2016 is a year that most of us would rather forget about and move on from. There are a number of topics which left people unhappy, but one cheerier aspect of the previous year was that the booming fashion industry showed no signs of slowing down.
This is demonstrated with 2016 showing the highest engagement levels with fashion shows since the early 2000’s, it appears many of us constantly wanting to see what is on-trend. Going into 2017 it appears that there are going to be a number of new & exciting fashion trends which will be seen over the next 12 months.
Black is Back
After being on the periphery with the majority of designers, it appears 2017 is the year where we can pay homage to the timeless, slimming, slick and trustworthy black. With our outfits we will no longer just be seeing the small additions of black, but instead you can expect to be covering your body in black head-to-toe.
It seems as though stripes have always been a popular trend for a number of years now, but usually changes is the type of design we see. The trend of pinstriped suits seems to be pulling itself back into the wardrobe of the businesswoman and we can see more urban outfits incorporating statement stripes – be it with a skirt or sweater.
Keep it Cropped
It seems as though 2016 was the last where we are going to see the scant crop tops. However, it does seem there is still a demand for clothing which is cropped – and it the designers have fulfilled this demand with the cropped jumper. This is trend which is perfect for an urban look which is relaxed and stylish – and as a bonus: you’ll be comfortable too!
The camouflage look has been made popular over the past year with a number of celebrities rocking the look, from Kanye West to Cara Delevigne – it is certainly a style which can be worn across the genders. It looks like 2017 is going to carry this trend over, with camo t-shirts and even socks, you can fill your wardrobe with as much camo as your heart desires.
Skinny joggers are definitely an item which may be frowned upon by many people, mainly due to the fact that joggers are designed to be comfortable lounge-wear. However, it appears that with the popularity of the sports luxe trend, the skinny joggers which stick tight to the skin are certainly going to be popular in 2017.
