Predicting The Fashion Trends of 2017

Fashion can be fickle and 2016’s trends must fall by the wayside to usher in new looks for 2017. Here, your complete guide to what to wear in 2017 and the one piece from this year that you should definitely hang on to.

1)Wear Color – Because 2017 is about getting out of the comfort zone, and retiring black to the back of the closet. Leading the trend is Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia, whose color-blocked looks (including spandex pants, encasing the shoe), will be a key moment for spring.

2)Wear Pink, specifically – Despite what Pantone says, pink is the color for 2017. Celine offers a fresh caped dress in pepto-pink for spring, while Chanel, Chloe, Gucci, Loewe, and Valentino weren’t far behind with their take on the true color of the season.

3)Shoulders – Baring them was very 2016, and a voluminous architectural shoulder and sleeve is the way to go for 2017. Look to Rodarte, Jacquemus, and Saint Laurent for ways to wear this new shape.

4)Sport – Athlesiure may have defined this year, but sport will determine the next. Put away your loose yoga sweats and try a stronger, sexier take, a la Courreges.

5)Utilitarian – Khaki and cargo pants will reign again, yet it is a polished utilitarian look we’ll see next year. Take a cue from Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Marni, and Stella McCartney.

6)Stripes – Stripes are never out of style. For 2017, they’ll either take the form of super-skinny pinstripes, or the exact opposite. Keep your eye out from these great wide-striped wide-legs from Derek Lam.

7)Bows – As fashion becomes more romantic again (thanks to Alessandro Michele at Gucci), a number of brands are turning to their softer side. We’ll wear big, sweet bows from Coach, Fenty x Puma, and Erdem.
