Opening your closet and knowing that you have all the styles and pieces you need this year, is a wonderful feeling. But reality strikes when you stand in front of it and think, “I have nothing to wear!” Though half the year has gone by it isn’t too late to refresh your wardrobe. If you’re looking for a few pieces that’ll give your look a 2017 upgrade, we’ve put together 9 wardrobe essentials you need this year!
Platforms That Amp Up Your Look
Sneakers might be our go-to footwear option, but platforms have really taken the fashion world by storm! Far from boring, this statement style is comfortable and can be taken to work as well. Wear them with high-waisted culottes and a tucked in blouse to give yourself a 2017 update.
Is there a better way to wear your mood? Since we millennials are all about voicing our opinions and sharing them with the world - a slogan tee is a great way to share your feelings with pride! Wear a slogan t-shirt with boyfriend jeans and espadrilles for the ‘cool girl’ look.
Wide Legged Pants
This year was big for wide-legged pants! They’re available in a variety of lengths and styles - which makes it an experimental trend you just can’t ignore. They’re just the kind of pants we’d wear to work and then drinks after!
Sneakers For Every Occasion
Keep the running shoes aside and invest in a pair of sneakers that are trendy and comfortable. You’ll be surprised how this versatile piece can amp up just about anything you wear. Sneakers have an old school, edgy vibe that adds a lot of character to an outfit. So what are you waiting for?
This year was all about statement sleeves and dramatics tops. After the off shoulder trend, we saw the drop shoulder, ruffled sleeves...and the list goes on! Investing in a top that has statement sleeves or even a dress for instance, is a great way to refresh your wardrobe. You can work the trend for a not-so-basic look.
What once used to be a tablecloth is now a trend all the fashion girls are obsessing over. A gingham dress or a top isn’t just a trendy piece your closet needs, but the trend also strikes the right balance between cute and sexy - it’s what perfection looks like!
When was the last time you saw someone wear a pair of skinny jeans? Not anytime soon, we’re guessing. That’s probably because they’re so last season! Comfortable is the new cool and this applies to denims as well. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans and straight fit denims - all sported by our favourite celebrities are proof enough that this is the it thing we totally need!
Mules For An Easy Breezy Style
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must’ve noticed celebrities sporting this footwear style at the airport. Comfortable, chic and the easy in, easy out style are enough reasons to love this trend! Team them up with cropped trousers and a basic t-shirt for a casual, chilled out look.
Cinch Your Waist With A Corset Belt
Sometimes all your outfit needs is a more structured fit. And the corset belt is all about that! You can wear them with a shift dress, an oversized tee or a pencil skirt to accentuate your curves and make your outfit look more defined. Get ready to cinch your waist, ladies!
