A Year in Review: Our Favorite Fashion Trends of 2017

A Year in Review: Our Favorite Fashion Trends of 2017

On Jan 15th 2018

Welcome to 2018! In the world of fashion, we’ve been seeing so many exciting and unexpected trends coming out of the past year. But what pieces should you still be rocking in the new year? To help you decide which trends to keep investing in, we’ve rounded up our top 3 favorite fashion trends from 2017 that will carry you through the new year.

 Dazzling Decades

Dazzling Decades In 2017, we were taking inspiration from our past. Whether it was the 70s-inspired suede or 90s-based velvet, this year was all about mixing styles from different decades.

Want to try the trend?

While bolder fabrics like velvet can seem intimidating at first, here’s a quick trick to incorporating the material seamlessly into almost any outfit: try it on your feet! Velvet booties are totally in this winter and are a great alternative to the more traditional suede or leather ankle boot. Plus, velvet booties with a chunky heel like our Hollywood Velvet Booties are unbelievably comfortable, so you can wear them all day, every day!

Extreme Earrings

Extreme Earrings Dainty jewelry may still be a classic staple in any wardrobe, but 2017 saw the rise of big, bold, and beautiful earrings! Gold hoops, dangling chains, tassels, and unexpected pops of color have been all over the runway, and we’re glad to see this fun trend brightening up our winter looks.

The great thing about this 2017 fashion trend is that it’s so unbelievably easy to incorporate into already existing outfits. Fun sets like our Mixed Tones Dangle Ball Earrings and the True Hoop Chain Earring can be used to add a bold pop of color, or add a gentle nod to the trend, depending on your own personal style.

Leather and Vinyl

 Talk about unconventional! This year, we’ve seen a huge rise in the popularity of vinyl and leather skirts, dress, pants and leggings. There’s something about an edgy bottom and a cozy knit sweater that just looks so chic. That’s what makes this one of our favorite fashion trends from 2017! Leather and Vinyl

Want to try the trend?

Leather pants can be super cool, but they sometime lack comfort. Our Sleek and Shiny Joggers offer the best of both worlds, using a leather look material that’s still super comfy and easy to wear. These can be dressed up or down by swapping out heels for sneakers and a graphic tee or blazer on top.

And there you have it folks! These 2017 fashion trends aren’t going anywhere in the new year, and we’re looking forward to seeing them styled in the future. The great thing about so many of these trends is that they change and evolve throughout the years, so a piece you wear today may still be a style staple down the road.
