I can’t believe that January is already almost over! It seems like just last week we were putting up our Christmas tree. Before any more time slips away from me, I wanted to take a minute and share with you my favorite trends of 2017. Many of these trends have carried over into 2018 and some can be easily restyled for several years to come.
I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to fashion and I don’t abide by any sorts of “rules”. If I see something that I like, I’m more than willing to give it a try. Some of these items were never really out of style they just weren’t as prominent. This just goes to prove that history repeats itself.
I would have never thought about giving this trend another try but the more I saw it, the more I fell in love. They are great for mom life because they’re so much more comfortable and convenient than rompers. They’re also much more durable. Here are some of my favorites:
I don’t care what anyone says, leopard is a neutral. This print is a timeless classic and never seems to find it’s way out of fashion. You can wear this as boldly and as proudly as you’d like. Shop my top picks:
Bell Sleeves and Statement Sleeves
This was another trend that took some warming up to for me. As you’ve seen in recent months, I can’t get enough. They can add a whole new level of interest to your look without going too over the top. Here are some that I’m currently crushing on:
This again is another print that never really goes out of style. It is a great neutral print that is perfect for casual wear. Shop my favorites here:
Seriously this is the best trend ever! Sneakers are my go-to for pretty much everything. They’re comfy, stylish and great for chasing after your little ones in. These are my everyday picks:
Being only 5’1″ this trend can be a little tough for me to wear. I love the casual chic look of a cozy cardigan paired with a basic tee or cami and your favorite jeans. They’re great for anyone and everything. I’ currently loving these:
I hate strapless bras and uncomfortable bras in general. I’m absolutely obsessed with the lace bralettes from Free People right now. I also love how exposed bras are actually cool right now! I think you’ll love these too:
Statement jewelry was fun…for a while. But I’m loving that dainty, delicate styles are trending again. They are much more timeless and not to mention easier to mix, match and layer as you choose. Here are my favorites:
Distressed and Frayed Hem Denim
I don’t think I bought one pair of jeans that weren’t distressed last year. Well, maybe one. This trend gives you an instant care-free lived in vibe that I absolutely adore. This trend has been popular for years and I don’t see it fading anytime soon. Shop my favorites here:
This one took a while to grow on me. It really depends on quality to make this trend work or not. I love how it can add an element of luxury to your look with minimal effort. It looks great mixed and layered with other textures as well. Here are some pieces I’m loving:
