Ahh 2017, a new start and new trends! I don’t know about you, but I am SO excited to see what cool things this new year brings us and to sharing another year with all of you very lovely people. Today, I wanted to show you a bit of a haul mixed with some up and coming trends for this year I just had to get on top of ( Plus, this gives me a reason to add to my wardrobe and I’m sticking with it lol ). So, here are a few trends I’m living for in 2017!
Ok, I know ripped denim has been huge for a few months now already and I love huge holes and knee openings, but I’m talking about denim that is ripped around the leg openings ( ankles?? How do you describe the holes you put your feet in in a way that isn’t ‘leg openings’? ). The frayed, destroyed and uneven look goes amazingly well with booties and heels. Regular denim looks good with those things too, but the distressing right next to the shoe really brings in some fun, cool-girl detailing I can’t get enough of!
These high waisted skinnies are from American Eagle Outfitters, but almost every retailer is selling some form of these grungy babies. From Zara, Urban Outfitters, and Ragged Priest to H&M and Forever 21 you really can find a perfect pair!
HOODIES. MAJORLY OVERSIZED HOODIES.
In the last few months I’ve seen a HUGE surge of oversized hoodies popping up all over, not only as loungewear, but styled into super chic outfits and I’m LOVING IT!! The simpler and bigger, the better with these ( bonus points if you roll up the sleeves a few times ). This one if from H&M and I feel like it’s slowly become one of those things I reach for when I want to look good, but not like I tried ( Basically every time I have plans lol ). No good outfits? Oversized hoodie. Feeling fat? Oversized hoodie. Don’t wanna wear pants? Extra long oversized hoodie. Problem solved! Some of my favorite ones come from stores like Shaddowhill, Wildfox, ASOS, and H&M. Also, most basic Hanes sweatshirts in a size up work perfectly and any kind of uniset merch ( for all of you who want to wear your favs and still rock the trend, I got you! ).
THREE WORDS: TAN, CREAM, BLUSH
These have been consistently three of my favorite colors and I see no signs I’ll be changing them any time soon. They’re also three colors that look amazing on everyone ( A plus! ) AND look so good on anything with ribbing ( A HUGE plus! Ribbed things are my jam… and probably make up at least 1/3 of my closet lol ). I’ve been living by this rule lately that I try to keep my basics in these three colors and black, so it’s really been helping me not to get stuck wearing my one favorite outfit when I don’t have time to match everything. They’re chic colors, I guess that’s why they’re so popular right now.
I have no idea if this is an actual trend or just one I love, but tiny backpacks are one of my favorite things as of late. I’m always the girl who has the bag that could probably hide an elephant or a coffee maker ( a completely random example, but now that I’m looking at my coffee maker I do honestly think it would fit in there ), and tends to carry her whole life on her shoulder, which is great don’t get me wrong! Being prepared for everything that could come my way is what I live for, but it’s also nice not to have 10 lbs hanging off of you too sometimes. In comes the mini backpack ( or mini bag, those things are adorable )! It’s perfect because, even if I anted to fit everything in there, I physically couldn’t. It’s liked on those shows where the professional organizers make hoarders throw away their things… except the purse is the organizer and I’m the one trying to shove three palettes, to lipsticks, and a highlighter in my bag. The one I have is in black faux leather and has a cute little tassel design to add that extra something. I got it from Forever 21, they actually have some great bags right now! Some other places I love are Urban Outfitters ( I guess this one is obvious, huh? ), ASOS, and Coach.
