The 6 Fashion Trends for 2017 To Wear Now

While 2016 was marked by the return of the '90s (think everything from chokers to slip dresses), 2017 is all about making a statement with power sleeves, shoulder-length earrings and block heels.

 

1. Not-so-classic white shirts

This wardrobe staple is getting revamped. Instead of your traditional style, think statement sleeves or off-the-shoulder tops. You can even forget the buttons. Pair one of these shirts with your favorite pair of jeans and you're ready to look fashionable while still feeling comfortable.

2. Gingham

This preppy pattern usually marks the start of spring and summer, but it's getting an edgy twist to making it a year-round staple. Instead of the typical blue and white check, it now comes in a black and white combo with a slightly bigger grid. Pair your gingham skirt with a simple black top, a cool leather jacket, booties and tights for the ultimate transitional look from winter to spring.

 

3. Pink and yellow

When it comes to the runway — and even celebrity dressing on the red carpet — it seems pink and yellow reign supreme. It's all about shades of soft blush and mustard hues or even neon yellow. If you're not so sure about rocking a bright yellow dress or jacket, try adding just a touch of these colors with your accessories.

 

4. Shoulder-duster earrings

It's time to use your jewelry to make a bold statement. In the world of accessories, this year is all about dangling, bedazzled earrings. With so many different styles and colors, this is a trend that anyone can pull off. Wear it with an off-the-shoulder top or dress for a chic and fashionable look.

 

5. Mini bags

When it comes to purses, the smaller, the better! Just because these bags might be tiny doesn't mean they can't make a fashion statement.

 

6. Block heels

Here's a trend that both you and your feet will love. Forget about sky-high heels, 2017 is all about lower, more supportive, block heels. From sandals to mules, this style will be the "it" shoe all year. The best part is, a low heel like this will make any shoe super versatile. Wear them with jeans for a more casual look or a dress for a night out.
