The Six Most Wearable 2017 Fashion Trends

By Becca Z. Towery

My REAL Style readers, are you ready for our official weather—and the clothes to accompany it? This Issue, I want to share some forecast ideas and trends in the fashion world. Fashion Week has passed, and there are a lot of bright new looks now blooming. I don’t know about you, but I have had my eyes on the new trends since they debuted on runways last fall. Tons of my favorite designers, and yours, showed pretty, edgy, groundbreaking, inspiring—and totally wearable—looks that we can now get our hands on. What is YOUR favorite look or trend this season?

Let’s take a look at REAL Style’s fashion roundup to get some outfit ideas, and start planning and plotting our style for this season…starting with the Floral trend you see in the photo: YuJia, Multicolor Floral A-line Frill Sleeve Midi Dress (available at www.stylewe.com).

Floral Patterns – Whether it’s in a blouse, skirt or dress, the floral look is in this season. For many years, I wouldn’t be caught dead in a floral print, but florals have been gaining in popularity for the past few seasons, and they’re all over the place this spring, so I finally decided to go with the trend. Why don’t you join me and mix a feminine floral top with a tougher distressed denim this season.

Bell Sleeves – It’s all about the sleeves this season, and bell sleeves are taking the world by storm. Go big or go home! This isn’t the most practical trend going right now, but it is fun, and almost anyone can wear them.

Stripes – The trend this spring is towards seaside stripes — think beach umbrellas and weathered awnings. I like this trend because you can wear strips as bold or as subtle as you like.

Cold-Shoulder / Off-the-Shoulder / One-Shoulder Styles – You didn’t think the cold shoulder was going anywhere, did you? If it’s not about the sleeves this season, it’s about the shoulders! Ladies, we’re celebrating springtime by baring a little skin. Bare those shoulders, because this season it’s all about shrugging off your sleeves. Off-the-shoulder silhouettes make for the perfect beach-to-bar outfits. Pair off-the-shoulder tops with high-waisted trousers or denim, a mid-length skirt or opt for off-the-shoulder white eyelet dress.

Raw Hem / Step Hem / Cropped Flares – The tops aren’t having all the fun this season. We’re also changing up our pants — namely the hemlines. If you love denim as I do, you have likely noticed the trend towards raw hems and step hems. Crop flares are also trending.

Wedge Sandals – Wedge sandals have been trending for a few seasons but they’re as hot as ever this season. They are the unofficial mascot of spring and summer. These staples are a savior when the weather heats up (Heels you can wear all day? Yes please!), and cork just makes a natural choice. Put Wedge sandals at the top of our shopping list this spring.
