Staying on top of the trends can be tough. Fashion moves at a speedy pace these days, and when your time and budget are both precious, it's not always possible to test out everything on your seasonal shopping list. Still, you don't have to sit out completely—it just takes knowing which trends to cherry-pick, and which to leave behind. In order to help you narrow things down, we're touching on five major trends that are going to take over in 2017.
Part of what's so great about each of these styles is they're easy to mix and match with what you already have. With the addition of one layering piece or a new top, you can dress up or down while still touching on the same styles that currently have the industry buzzing. Curious to see what five trends made the cut? Below we break each of them down for you, along with some shoppable pieces so you can get started!
Read on for the only five trends you need to try this year!
After its appearance on the runway and some of our favorite street style stars, corset-dressing has arrived as a major trend. Style yours over a T-shirt or button-down to give it the 2017 twist.
The '80s Way
It's back to the future—or past, rather—with the '80s-inspired exaggerated shoulders, metallics, and more. With most major fashion houses on board, expect to see this all over.
The New Athleisure
With the rise of femleisure and the infiltration of sportswear (and leggings) on the runway, don't put away your workout gear just yet. Instead, dress it up with girly or high-fashion pieces, and wear it anywhere your heart desires.
No matter what you're wearing, this year, it will be your jewelry that makes a major statement. Oversize, sculptural, eye-catching earrings are the styles you'll see on the fashionable women you admire.
Contrary to last summer's shoulder-showing tops, this year, we've migrated into sleeves that make an entire outfit. Bell styles, frills, and more dress up even the simplest outfit.
