Fall/Winter 2017 Fashion Trends

Keeping up with the latest fashion trends isn’t as easy as you may think. Lots of times the fashion seen on the run way does not translate well to the average person’s wardrobe and the style may very well be lost in the process. Struggle no longer ladies! Here I break down the latest high fashion trends seen in this season’s Paris fashion week, to a much more wearable alternative. These are the Fall/Winter 2017 fashion trends to copy! Happy styling!

1. The Color Of Red.

This red is not the commonly assumed Fall maroon. A brighter, cherry red is what is trending. This is most easily worn as an outer layer. A pea coat, rain coat, or puff coat/vest would be ideal. It also dresses well in combinations; a red sweater with red shoes or a red pant with red nails.

2. A Secret Weapon: Metallics.

Metallic fabric alone can be daunting and I wouldn’t blame you if you turned around and ran the other way. This winter, give it another look in the form of a detailed purse, ballet flat, or mini skirt. Pair your metallic pieces with monochromatic outfits, such as the always bold, all-black ensemble.

3. Not Your Grandma’s Couch: Plaid And Checkered

Plaids have always been a go to “throw on” over a basic tee with a pair of jeans. That is remaining strong this fall and winter, however, plaid is also being seen in skirts. Not your knee-length private school uniform kind of plaid, but the 70’s style checker print in a mini skirt, paired with a cute neutral knit.

4. The Always Loved Distressed And Messy Look.

This trend became popular last fall and winter when artist Kanye West began his fashion line. The simplicity and the undone look attracts many people to his everyday, wearable style. This year many more designers followed in his footprints. This is seen in the unfinished hem on denim jeans, jackets, and button up tops. Pair these frayed jeans with an oversized, broken-in knit sweater.

5. You No Longer Have To Suffocate Your Legs In Skinny Jeans. WOO!

A personal favorite trend of 2017 is wide leg pants! A straight wide leg or bell bottom will keep you trendy and able to move freely throughout the day. Be sure to pair this with a more fitted top to balance out the width in the leg. Tuck in your top and style with a pair of short booties and leather jacket.

6. For When You Have Your Beyonce Days, Choose Leather.

Leather has come back in full force and this will be no different for the fall and winter. Choose a leather paneled legging to give you longer looking legs with a mix of texture to catch the eye. You can also pair a leather skirt with a pair of leather booties in the evening. If all else fails, go for the leather jacket.

7. Stay Extremely Warm And Stylish This Fall And Winter With Shearling Detail.

Most commonly seen worn as a coat, shearling detailing will keep you warm while avoiding the dreaded outfit ruiner that a jacket can tend to be. Shearling coats can be dressed down with a pair of jeans, but can be worn in the evening over a black dress. Also keep an eye out for shearling skirts that will definitely be trending.
