These 2017 Trends Are Not Southern Girl–Approved

Being a born-and-bred Southern girl myself, I spend a lot of time in that region of the country. And being a fashion editor, I spend a lot of time observing what people wear in that region of the country. Fashion trends among Southern girls can admittedly be a bit of a head-scratcher. Even though they love to shop and look stylish and be in-the-know about what the current trends are, I've found that they aren't the quickest to adopt new trends into their wardrobes. Instead, they tend to go for pieces that skew more classic, like sundresses and skinny jeans.

Of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to what you know and love, especially when it comes to something as personal as what you wear every day. That said, when compared to style-minded women in other parts of the country, I'm simply pointing out that Southern girls, in general, tend to have more of a classic, timeless aesthetic than overly "trendy." Accordingly, I broke it down to the specific 2017 trends that Southern fashion girls are avoiding, and those that they're wearing instead.
