It’s no secret that fashion trends are just that – well, trends. What was hot last year is probably not so much this year. It can be difficult keeping up with all of the new changes every year. Some welcome it. But, I think it’s safe to say that a lot of the trends that come out of fashion week are not practical for the average woman. That is, unless you walk the catwalk. Read on to find out about the must-have fashion trends this year that can be worn every day.

Fashion Trends: Spring/Summer 2017 Must-Haves

Think Pink

Spring/Summer 2017: What Are This Year’s Must-Have Fashion Trends?

The new “it” color this season is a very bright, pastel pink. However, any shade of pink will work this year. Pink isn’t necessarily a trend because it’s flattering to any skin tone. A huge plus for all of you pink lovers like me! Adding a pop of pink to your ensemble can be in the form of accessories, shoes, or outerwear. Wear a monochromatic look or go tonal from head to toe with different pink shade variations. Pink structured handbags are all the rage. Choose a soft pink or a vibrant fuchsia for an on-trend look.

Leggings

Spring/Summer 2017: What Are This Year’s Must-Have Fashion Trends?

I remember back in the 80s when leggings were everywhere. We’d wear leggings with a long tunic over top to cover our not-so-great areas. Well, leggings are back in a big way, but the tops aren’t so over-sized and sloppy looking. They’re a little more form-fitting and sleek. However, don’t confuse form-fitting with skin tight. Many of the newly designed tops have a hi-low hem that is visually appealing but also covers the backside. Whether worn with a shorter dress and a wedge, high-heeled boots, or sandals, leggings can be dressed up or down which make them a versatile staple for your wardrobe.

Colorful Stripes

Stripes in every size, shape, and color were a constant on the catwalk. Don’t be afraid of stripes either. Some of us may worry about them making us look bigger than we are. However, designers have restructured stripes so that they enhance your silhouette instead of detracting from it.

Whether plain or embellished, stripes will be in style and on trend.

Button-down Shirts

Button-down style shirts used to be popular. For some reason, they disappeared for a while. They’re back with a vengeance to update a casual or workplace outfit. They can be worn in or out or with an obi belt to accentuate your waist. Many of the new button down shirts have taken on that high-low hem which works back with leggings beautifully. Shirt dresses are also a fun new trend that’s easy to wear and accessorize.

Statement T-Shirts

Graphic tees with slogans are back in style. Wear one of your favorite phrases or inspirational messages. One of the cool must-have fashion trends! Do you have a favorite inspirational quote? What about live, love, and laugh? If you’re unable to find a tee with a graphic you’d like to sport, buy a plain tee and iron on a decal. Or make it even more special by having it embroidered.

Bralettes

Bralettes are easy and comfortable. They are very versatile – can be worn as your everyday bra or as a layering piece for those not-so-modest tops. Pair one with those plunging v-neck shirts or wear one under a half-zipped hoodie. The designs of the new bralettes are meant to be shown such as the lace straps.

Platforms

Platform shoes with chunky wedges are back. No more squeezing your toes into a pointy high heel unless you prefer that look. Anything goes in terms of embellishments and decoration. Shoes can make an old outfit new again.

Wedges are a way of wearing a high heel without the usual pain of your typical pumps. If you choose to wear a 5-inch heel, a wedge will make it feel as if you are wearing a 3-inch heel because of the platform at the toe. They’re a great way to make your legs look slim and sexy!

Crossbody Bags

Spring/Summer 2017: What Are This Year’s Must-Have Fashion Trends?

Crossbody bags have become so popular that they’re pretty much a classic these days. Even the big totes in retail have long straps for a crossbody option. Must-have fashions trends that are easy to add to any outfit!  

An easy budget tip – choose a crossbody bag that’s pink and you’ve killed two birds with one stone. Some of the crossbody bags are not large enough to hold everyday necessities. Look for one that has plenty of organizational pockets that are spacious enough for daily use.

Fashion rules have pretty much gone out the window. Wearing white in the middle of winter is no longer taboo. Basically, you wear what you feel like and when to wear it.

Luxury Phone Cases

Designer phone cases have become more popular than ever.

Designer phone cases have become more popular than ever. With the help of Coach and Louis Vuitton, your phone has just become a chic and sassy accessory. Some of the designer phone cases are very expensive, but you can get good deals at an outlet store. One of my favorite keychains is from a Coach outlet store in Atlantic City.

Hoodies

Spring/Summer 2017: What Are This Year’s Must-Have Fashion Trends?

Hoodies, one of the must-have fashion trends, are so huge, it’s often difficult to find a sweatshirt without a hood. This sporty look isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Zippered hoodies fall under the same category. The zipped ones are more versatile for layering with a bralette, for example.

One Shoulder and Cold Shoulder Tops

Spring/Summer 2017: What Are This Year’s Must-Have Fashion Trends?

While these have been around for a bit, they continue to be a staple of your wardrobe. They’re easy and comfortable to wear, and showing some shoulder has become the new sexy. Have you ever heard an “ugly” or unattractive shoulder? Shoulders quite possibly could be the only part of the body nobody complains about. Great for us!
