A Love Is Blind
Now that 2017 is finally here, you can officially argue the point that you haven't done any shopping this year and have it be valid. Since we know our loyal readers (that's you) are always on the hunt for the items that are on the verge of trending as opposed to the trends all their friends are already wearing, we gathered the shopping items that fashion connoisseurs absolutely need this 2017.
The spring 2017 runway collections presented colors, textures, and themes that had us wide-eyed and hopeful for the new year of fashion ahead. If we can summarize the ultimate fashion-girl shopping list into on word, it would be this: lively. From pink pants to rainbow accessories, statement sleeves to long-forgotten logo-adorned pieces, we apologize in advance for the number of items you're about to buy. Would this be the appropriate time to say sorry, not sorry?

Go bold this year with rainbow-colored accessories ranging from shoes to bags. Keep an eye on designers like Rosie Assoulin and Sara Battaglia for accessories that win in this trend category.
This once cliché trend is officially back. Designers from Gucci to Dolce & Gabbana are putting out T-shirts with their names printed all over them. Could this be the new wave of band tees?
And we mean bright pink! Designers from Valentino to Attico sent out the vibrant hue in silhouettes ranging from frilly to sleek.
If Lanvin, Marni, and Alessandra Rich agree, so do we—costume jewelry is officially cool again and when styled right, can look insanely chic sans the price tag.
Thanks to Stella McCartney, J.Crew, and Joseph, utilitarian pieces are the items you need to achieve the freshest 2017 style. We personally love the paper bag trousers option.
UNUSUALLY SHAPPED BAGS
Your classic polished workhorse bag is no longer welcome in the New Year. This time around, the stranger the shape (and pattern) the better.
Statement sleeves have been around for a few seasons now, so either pull out your favorites you already own or get the one below because, well, we don't think it needs much of an explanation.
Phillip Lim and The Row have made us fall in love with this foreign-looking slipper style. Recently seen with fun add-ons like this printed heel back or embroidered flowers, there is nothing boring about these new flats.
Streetwear is apparently not going anywhere, and we aren't mad about it. This season, push the boundaries just a little and pick up an oversizedsweatshirt. We recommend styling yours with cropped leather trousers and sneakers.
Prada and Rosie Assoulin (currently obsessing over) made a strong case for gingham and checks perfect for those summertime picnics and long lunches. To avoid the stereotypical sweet tone of the print, opt for shapes that are a bit out of the ordinary.
Lace-up ankle details are just where this trend starts—anklets are where it ends. When it comes to footwear this year, the sky is the limit and we are loving the look of an overaccessorized foot.
These vintage-inspired blazers are breathing new life into the tailored menswear trend this year and we are very on board. This micro-plaid pattern is a classic, but varsity styles and school-girl-inspired trimmings are welcome as well.
Balenciaga, Gucci, Prada, and beyond put out bold floral dresses that make you feel like you're experiencing one for the first time. But for now, this embroidered Zara one will do the trick.
