2017 is the year of the millennial. True to its brief, the year pays homage to fashion-forward, experimental and fun fashion trends. They’re also moving pretty fast (again true to the millennial). We’ve listed out the 7 key trends you’re about to fall for and where you can shop them too. Ready, set, shop?
The Advent Of Minimalist Jewellery
This trend stays true to the classics.Sure, statement jewellery can make any outfit appear more fashion-forward. But, have you ever noticed how simplicity is just as glamorous without screaming, “Look at me“? This chain and pendant necklace by Swarovski is all things nice and understated, and we’re adding it to our treasure chest.

Mini Bags Take Reign
You can only fit your lipstick, cash and phone into this one! Flashback to a few years ago, and you’ll probably remember that every designer handbag was bigger than the next. However, in 2016 things took a sudden turn and we saw the advent of clutches, satchels, and box bags that paved the way for the minimal trend. Add-to-cart this denim mini, and you’re ready to take on 2017.
Let The Granny Glasses Grow On You
If you’ve spotted the granny glasses on every celebrity’s Instagram handles, then you should know that there are new glasses in town. Yes, these oversized wiry or clear plastic frames have taken over the fashion world by storm. Whether it’s A-list celebrities or the fashion elite, we’ve seen a number of people sporting this trend.
Incorporate The Very-In Gingham
Gingham is officially 2017’s hottest print. Embrace the gingham trend without jumping in full force. If you’re not ready for head-to-toe gingham, work the look with your accessories, accentuating your neck with a cool gingham scarf, or with the famed checks on your footwear. Or maybe this bag might do the trick?

Sling-back Shoes For The Win
Did you know slingbacks are back? (There’s a tongue twister right there) We aren’t complaining because who wouldn’t want the comfy strap and flats? Also, this smooth suede sling-back with wide-leg trousers and a white-flannel shirt make for a fashion-forward ensemble. Shop now!

Get Yourself The Scallop Bikini
Summer’s here, so it’s time to you ask yourself a very important question: Are you ready for bikini-season? Or are you thinking of all the seafood you’re about to dig in? Well, merge these two thoughts and buy yourself a bikini with a wavy scallop trim. This trend’s doing the rounds and Sao-Paulo based blogger Helena Bordon approves.
Heidi Scallop Bikini, £133
Amp Up Your Bottomwear
It’s all about A-line cuts, vivid prints, and pretty accents like bows (yes, bows!) for pants this year. It’s lot easier to stand out from the crowd with these bottoms because they’re anything but basic. Patchwork denim elevates street style to a sophisticated level by making things more interesting. If Victoria Beckham loves them, then so do we!
