Keep, Keep, Toss.
If there's one thing we know about fashion, it's that trends really do come and go every year. Each January, we clean out our closets and make space for the new and more exciting things we are told will improve our lives (and do). There's always those few obvious things we know won't last us through the next year. Like that dress you bought, which Gigi wore, which looked awful because it turns out you're not Gigi.
It's deciding what to keep which is the hard part. One-of-a-kind purchases? Keep. Anything leather? Keep. That's a given. You'll have those forever.
So what 2016 trends do we think are here to stay for 2017 (like it or not)?
F L A T S
I personally envy any woman that can go 9-5 in a stiletto. Praise be to Gucci for bringing the sensible back with their sought after leather slippers.
V E L V E T
You either love it or you hate it. We love it and are happy to say it's sticking around.
S H I R T I N G
Shirting came in large for 2016 and will keep coming back around.
F I S H N E T S
Whether you like it or not, fishnets are happening. Wear them peeking through or over the top of your jeans. If you can pull it off, we salute you.
L A C E + L U X U R Y
Right off the runway to you. Lace, romantic layers and luxury everything. Invest in pieces you can't live without and keep them forever. Your grandchildren will thank you for it.
D E N I M
This goes without saying. Denim in every shape and form has dominated this year as always and is going strong.
