Four trends to watch out for in 2017

 Ranti of

Hey guys! So I’m back in school now which means more stress on my neck and fewer posts. I’m going to try to have a new post on the blog every 4-5 days. Please bear with me! And totally by the way, I got a new laptop which I love so much rn, My old laptop was definitely hanging off a cliff! So 2016 was a great year with a lot of old trends resurfacing and new ones coming into place. There were some trends I immediately fell in love with with and some, eh not so much. So this post is about four trends that will most likely make their way into 2017 or rather that I want to make their way to 2017 so I can rock the hell out of it!

1. Pleats – These have been around since as far as I can remember. Even when I was a little girl, I was always dressed up in pleats and stuff, but in 2017, pleats were a majorly highlighted trend. I especially love the metallic pleated skirts and culottes, they made me fall in love with pleats all over again!

2. The Slip – For me living in Nigeria has put some constraints on how I dress, especially because of the weather. Layering with a cami top or dress is something I have longed to do for a while now but haven’t got the chance too, soon though. The velvet and charmeuse silk camis caught my eye and that was when I started looking out for this trend and then fell in love with it!

This look above incorporates about 3 of the trends I mentioned, exaggerated sleeves(not overly exaggerated but I love the effect the black ties make), the slip dress and mules!

3. Sleeves – By sleeves, I mean overly exaggerated sleeves. Bell sleeves, Ruffles, Sleeve appliques became very popular in the last year. I have actually always been attracted to bell sleeves, then the ruffles took my heart then the appliques. Sadly I have only tried this trend with overly flared (not exactly bell sleeves) and I can’t wait to try it in 2017.

This picture was from my last post here, and the sleeves here are exaggerated enough right?


4.Mules – The plain way to state this is, “I love comfort”. I’m not really a heel type of girl maybe because I haven’t found the perfect one yet. I wear them a lot but they always make my feet hurt! So when I discovered mules, a stylish and sorta unconventional way to wear your slippers or slides, I immediately jumped on it. Though I’m still very picky on the type of mules I like as some are definitely not my style!

I’d absolutely wear these but Im pretty sure their out of my budget lol, Via NORDSTROM

I’d wear all these below probably with the exception of the burgundy. I’m not a overly high chunky heel sort of person! Via Mansur Gavriel


Who else is with me on any of these trends and which other trends do you want to make it into 2017? Do let me know in the comments.

  1. Gurl U’re so on track with dis post, all d best in skul. Pleats z a evry season thing, i doubt dat will ever go out of style but i think what makes it special each tym z how it z incorporated in designs, I wanted to rock d exaggerated sleeves nd slip trend last yr but I couldn’t so m glad d season isn’t over, even if it z I’m not one for just sticking to trends, i love mules too they’re pretty stylish. Oda trends I’d love to see dis yr are colour blocking, m obsessed with dat, den mixture of two odd colours will b pretty cool too.

    1. I definitely want to rock the slip trend so bad too but thank God we are not trend followers so even if the season is over before we get ours, We’d still rock it and kill it!

  2. Yes I agree with you, these trends would be huge this year. I’m not really into the slip dress or slides (although if I find a really cute pair I just might change my mind). I’m certainly going to be rocking metallic pleats (as soon as I can find one) and exaggerated sleeves.

    1. Metallic pleats are definitely my favorite of all that I mentioned but I don’t know where to get one from too ( at an affordable price)! Thanks for stopping by girl!

      1. Brilliant stuff, man! What you have to say is really important and Im glad you took the time to share it. What you said really spoke to me and I hope that I can learn more about this. Thanks for sharing your opinion. I am yet to find anything as enihtigenlng as this on the web.
