Last year brought us a lot of things, many of which were fashion-related. Think: awe-inspiring collabs, fashion house designer musical chairs, slits in the butts of jeans, and a whole slew of throwback moments. So what major fashion changes could 2017 possibly bring? Since we’re already a couple of weeks into the new year, we thought it was time to see what’s going to be replacing our chokers and mom jeans in the approaching months.
To help, we asked five of our favorite stylists to weigh in on what they predict is going to blow up. Happy shopping!
“Fashion has always been about risk-taking but, for the first time, devotees won’t have to look too far outside their own closets to emulate one of 2017’s biggest trends. So much of what designers Stuart Vevers [of Coach] and Alessandro Michele [of Gucci] have championed in their latest collections transcends the runway by reminding consumers that fashion is much less about what you wear, and more about how you wear it. By mixing high-brow and low-end pieces—as easy as borrowing your dad’s old band T-shirt or anorak—you can create head-turning looks in the vein of Gucci and Coach.” —Heather Newberger, stylist
