As the year of 2016 has almost passed, we should take a peek at the up and coming fashion trends for 2017, or to be more specific, at the accessories that will restyle your look. Keeping up with the trends is not always that available (we’re talking about the budget limitations), since you can’t spend all of your money on new outfits that come and go with every season. However, there’s no need to buy completely new clothes when you can buy fashionable accessories and create new and trendy outfits. Therefore, we’ve come up with the list of top five fashion accessories that will be under the spotlight on the 2017 fashion scene.
The star from the 90s, the choker necklace, has made its way back and is planning to stay for at least another year. If you’ve been following the trends, you probably have your own collection of chokers. Although the classic black choice made of satin, plastic or velvet will always have the place in the fashion world, you might consider taking it to another level in 2017 by opting for heavy metal chokers that you’ll be wearing both with your fanciest outfit and your casual white tee and jeans. What makes these next-level chokers so great is the fact that you can combine them with almost any type of neckline, from a strapless gown, to a casual turtleneck.
One of the main features of earring trends for the next year is mismatching. This jewellery trend has made its way from the runway to the streets, so you can find a single earring options in almost every jewellery store. The trick with mismatching earrings is that the more different they are, the better effect and more unique look you will achieve. There are endless possibilities, and if you’re not used to experimenting, but you’re willing to try, this a perfect way to start. Another trending feature for wearing earrings is multiple piercings and earring stacking. Unlike mismatching, stacking requires more attention, so you’ll have to combine different earrings with more care.
Among the top must-have fashion accessories, belts cannot be left out, since they play an important role in completing any type of outfit. Belts are one of those accessories that can transform old outfits into new ones in no time. Obi belts have been one of the focuses of New York Fashion Week. These thick belts can be used in a variety of ways to form a fashion statement, so you can’t enter 2017 without one. A simple, but elegant black dress can be complemented with a bright leather obi belt. Skinny belts are another popular choice and you can wear them both around your waist and hips.
The list of top five fashion accessories wouldn’t be complete without mentioning glasses. For an elegant and chic look, you should opt for a pair of cat eye glasses that will accentuate your eyes and makeup. If you want to achieve a more unique and funky look, glasses with brightly colour frames with unusual patterns are just what you need. When it comes to sunglasses, they are another item on the must-have list. If elegance and authenticity is your first choice, you should go with Carrera sunglasses. On the other hand, round dark glasses will go perfectly with jeans and a casual tee.
A more stylish version of fanny pack for the following year is also referred to as “belt bags”. The new edition entails purses on belts around the hips, which can also be worn over the shoulder. Furthermore, an innovative minimalist line of handbags presents an elegant design in different styles. You can opt for a handbag that can be used as a tote, cross-body, backpack and satchel, and you’ll get both style and functionality.
Simple, but stylish accessories can make a lot of difference when it comes to restyling old outfits. The following year will open up many possibilities, and you are only to follow your imagination in combining new with the old.
