Everyone knows that with a new year, comes new fashion trends. This makes some of us as giddy as 16-year-old with a fake ID, whilst others would rather make like Sia and hide. Whatever your take on the hottest fashion trends of 2017, one thing’s for sure, you really, reeeeeallly don’t want to screw this one up. And neither do we.
So to get your pins in the right pants, and your prints on point, we turned to the pros. Kate Anderson, kickass director and head designer of SIG, one of the cool AF Aussie fashion brands we’re officially crushing on this year, has done the hard work for us.
Here are 10 fashion trends you’ll be rocking in 2017.
See what we did there? Top-to-toe nautical is officially in for 2017 (BYO boat). Whether it’s dresses, tanks, or the perfect short, expect 2017 to include waists that allow for fold over options, and brands like SIG 2017, Rosie Assouline, Banana Republic, Altuzarra, Zimmermann, and RED Valentino are some of our top picks to up your stripe game by the boatload— too much?
Khaki is always a good idea, not to mention versatile AF, making it possible to take your look from day to night with ease. The perfect lazy girl trend, Creatures of Comfort, Public School, Carolina Herrera, Yeezy, and J. Crew have got your back (and your front).
Yes, we mean yellow. And yes, we mean you. Whether it is the brightest of bright canary or a more demure lemon, all 50 shades of yellow are in for 2017. Check out Delpozo, Coach, Jason Wu, Erin Fetherston, Creatures of Comfort, and Kate Spade New York to see how it’s done.
In 2017 if it isn’t off the shoulder, it just isn’t right. Strategically placed cut outs have a place this year too, however the overall rule of the game for this one is to show just the right amount of skin. When it comes to nailing it, SIG 2017, Prabal Gurung, Self-Portrait, Rodarte, Brock Collection, Tome, Monse, Hellessy, Vetements, and Tibi are #goals.
Forget the flare, 2017 is all about the slit when it comes to updating your sleeves. Side note: that doesn’t mean taking a knife to all the threads you brought in 2016, leave that to the pros like Hellessy, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Lacoste, Michael Kors, and Prabal Gurung.
White Shirt Dress
It’s always good when your fave investment piece bucks the trends of change, and hangs around for another quality trip around the sun. You heard it here first guys, your white shirt dress is here to stay for 2017, and because you can never have too much of a good thing (obvs) check out SIG, Rag & Bone, Lie Sangbong, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Banana Republic, and DKNY if you need an update.
Unless you lived under a rock last year, you would have seen good ol’ Kimmy K rocking one of these on the front cover of Vogue. Surprise, surprise (not really) this is set to trend (in a major way) in 2017. Wear it over your shirtdress and take this look out on the town with you, hit up Misbhv, Tibi, and Sally LaPointe to see how the pros do it.
Before you rip off all your clothes and strut, the nude look is in for 2017. By look we’re saying exactly that, look nude, don’t be nude guys (unless you really want to) and check out looks by Yeezy, DKNY, Alexander Wang, Wes Gordon, and Cushnie et Oche this year.
Let’s Get Physical
No, we don’t mean active wear. We know, what will you brunch in now? Let us tell you. 2017 is all about that sporting style; cue jerseys, trackpants and oversized t-shirts. Get your game on with SIG, Band of Outsiders, Rag and Bone, Narciso Rodriguez, Lacoste, and Boss.
Just quietly, we’re pretty sure 2017 is going to be our favourite year ever. Our final trend sees you hitting the streets in your bathrobe, and not because you locked your hungover self out of the house. Silky, structured and super cute are all in for 2017, and wearing your trench as a dress also counts. SIG is showing us how it’s done when it comes to this trend along with Lacoste, Jonathan Simkhai, and Band of Outsiders.
