A New Year essentially marks new beginnings. While we still hold on to our dearies, it’s time to let go some things from the past that don’t fit in anymore.
One of the most variable elements today is fashion. With the concept of see now buy now taking over the consumer’s purchase pattern, it becomes inevitable for a fashionista to be abreast of all the fashion updates.
So this one’s for all the serious shoppers who are looking for that head start on the upcoming trends for the year ahead.

With all the prominent designers flaunting striped silhouettes on the Spring/ Summer 2017 runways, the nautical trend is sure to see a rise. Although stripes have been in for about two seasons now, we suggest, if your closet is devoid of that “It” striped piece, you still have time to binge on them. Be it striped bottoms, or an asymmetric striped dress, stripes will be hot this summer. Banker stripes too will be on an all time high.
Athleisure is all set to get a facelift in 2017. With a host of luxury global brands confirming to the power of athleisure, it’s time we add some luxe appeal to the term calling it Athluxury. As the industry biggies launch dedicated collections to appeal to the senses of its carriers, we say don’t shy away from splurging on chic and comfort clothing, as most of your expensive and OTT pieces might just be rendered redundant.
3. Flared Pants
With retro drawing major attention, it’s time for the re-entry of the 80’s superstar, the flared pants. Though skinny and ripped will continue to feature, we say, if the blood of a true fashionista is running in your veins, then you better make that shift to bell bottoms and flares. Pair your crops and long layerings with flared pants to secure your fashionista reputation come 2017.
While 2016 showed some logo flaunting by the brands, with 2017, it will be all about slogans and messages. Undermining their importance a bit, brands will be focussed on putting across a certain message with their silhouettes. So, you better grab the slogan you identify with and flaunt it in the coming year.
5. Studded Quirky Sneakers
We hope you wore your classic white Stan Smith’s to your heart’s content the whole of 2016. If not, then girl we are sorry to break the news to you, but white sneakers may not be able to hold on for long. With their more quirky, studded, metallic and glitter counterparts making a huge roar, 2017 is sure to get them to the limelight.
You definitely cannot keep a diva away from her heels for two long. However, with the industry moving towards comfort, heels continue to rest in the dated category. 2017 will welcome the platforms, to cheer up all the disheartened divas who love their extra inches of confidence. Elevated loafers, square platform shoes may well be the road ahead.
7. It Phone Cases and Bags
Most of you will agree, that a phone is all you need when you step out of your house. In 2017, make sure along with you, your phone is dressed up in novelty and quirky cases, like the ones from Moschino or more classic ones from Louis Vuitton.If bags are still your primary obsession then be prepared to ditch your classics giving way to a whole range of wild, funky and cool standout pieces. Say no to your blacks, please.
