Fashion Trends That Matter Right Now
Before heading to the next mall sale, check out these holiday and fall-winter 2017 trends that could make you feel confident, or even make you turn heads and standout.
Pantsuits and uniform dressing
Power dressing from the ‘80s and ‘90s is back! But instead of looking like a stiff uniform, they now come in more experimental shapes and sleeker silhouettes.
Puffed jackets, faux fur and vintage looks
Besides puffed sleeves, padded jackets return to add volume to sleek silhouettes. Faux fur makes a statement this season in multi-colored and leopard printed jackets adding flair to any subdued outfit. A resurgence of vintage inspired logo tanks and tees make another appearance this season too. For men, oversized varsity jackets, quilted bombers, faux leather motos and faux-shearling coats are the key outerwear styles of the season. Acid wash and distressed denim play a prominent role in Fall’s offering, adding a bit of edge to the delivery and is offered in a variety of silhouettes including jeans and jackets.
Long tops and statement shoes combo
Whether it is a long trench coat or an oversized T-shirt; that is all you need, and oh, but with statement shoes like knee-high boots!
Pants and dress
On the other side of the spectrum, there is also a conservative trend for those not comfortable to not wear pants. If you have a dress that you find to be too short, you can wear it with skinny jeans or other slinky bottoms.
Thanks partly to the popularity of ‘80s-themed sci-fi series “Stranger Things,” Space Age-inspired, shiny fabrics are back. Nothing could be flashier in a party than a second skin akin to that of “Star Wars’” C3PO.
Arts and crafts
People want to be something else nowadays, for example, besides being an office worker, they are also an artist. Many also are into do-it-yourself stuff, and this manifests in today’s trends like the continuing patches trend and other touches that give garments artisanal quality.
