Wake up ladies, 2017 is upon us! And as you reflect on the year that went by, don’t forget to think of some of the godawful fashion choices you made last year. This year, we resolve to make sure that you make all the right fashion decisions. So while you pull out last year’s skeletons from your closet, here’s what you should replace them with. Follow our fashion predictions to the T to avoid history repeating itself.
Trust us when we say that dungaree dresses will be a major trend this year. While dungarees have been a part of most celebrity street style images recently, the dungaree dress is the most obvious fashion upgrade. Wear yours with a plain crew neck tee (go for one with full sleeves) or a crop top. Make sure you pay attention to your footwear game with sneakers or knee-high gladiators.
Floaty crop tops
One way to get over your obsession of crop tops is by investing in this year’s hottest trend – the floaty crop. These feminine, billowy crop tops are a great way to dress up or down any outfit. Wear them with high waist maxi skirts and stilettos for a chic date look or team it up with printed pants and sneakers for a casual day out with friends. There are infinite ways to style this wardrobe must-have.
Long line tops
Make space in your closet for long line tees. Keeping up with the ‘borrowing from the boys’ movement, this rapper-inspired trend has made its way to womenswear as well. Wear one with leather leggings and a chic choker for a casual look or team it up with a midi skirt and stilettos for a more put-together one.
Taking forward last year’s obsession, prints are all the rage this year too. Go for tropical prints and bright colours to put your best foot forward this summer. Go for bold blooms, palm prints or elegant leafy options to shine through the year. Include everything from printed skirts, dresses, shorts and pants in your wardrobe. Make sure you keep the rest of the elements of your look simple for the prints to stand out.
