An early Christmas gift: 2017 in Preview

Christmas is about giving and receiving, right? From all loved I’ve received from you this past year, I thought I’d do a fun 2017 post as an early Christmas gift (gotta keep the Christmas week theme going, lol). So here is 2017 in preview:

2017 in preview with fashion trends 2017, beauty trends 2017 + makeup and fashion inspiration | The Fashion Folks

What we will be wearing…

Here’s the full preview post on fashion trends 2017. I, of course, still stand by all trends I mentioned. There will be a lot of stripes, floral prints, colorful clothes, 1980s fashion and tees with text! Except those, neon (more 1980s fashion that is) will make a comeback and ruffles will continue from the off the shoulder trends! Beige, khaki green and mauve have all been huge color wise this year (yup, you know what social media fashion I’m referring too) and these colors are going high fashion next year. If you want to see more from the fashion of 2017, I suggest checking this tag and all the posts of the fashion weeks!

What we will look like…

Here’s the full preview post on beauty trends 2017. There will be color pops, metallic, smudgy eyes, neon makeup and a lot of braids. Dark lips with neutral makeup will be a hit. I don’t know if we’ll see an end to all the heavy makeup trending at the moment, with full on of everything (contour, brows, falsies, full brows), but trends often come in circles. So sooner or later a more neutral makeup will probably come (but please let us keep the brows this time though). A lot of designers did soft makeup looks during the fashion weeks. The makeup was colorful, and there was still quite a lot of it, but there was no harsh edges and the colors matched perfectly. So perhaps that’s the next step in the direction!

Who we will be inspired by…

Instagram fashion is not going anywhere anytime soon. So there will still probably be a lot of denim, shirts, denim jackets, it-bags with contemporary details such as suede and lace. The other part of Instagram fashion that follows the footsteps of Kardashian/Jenners, will probably keep on doing so, as the families popularity is still going high! Fashion bloggers will still keep things high and Aimee Song, Chiara Ferragni and Julie Sariñana (and others) will continue to serve the inspiration. So go social media if you want to be where it happens!

If we could dream…

Or if I could wish, I hope I’ll see more individuality in fashion the coming year. More style than trends and more variation of styling than new clothes for new outfits. We are consuming fashion and trends in a higher pace than we or the planet can bear, which is madness. I won’t be impressed by your style when you keep on working new clothes, I’ll be impressed when you can style it in 15 different ways and make it look new each time. As new production and high consumption won’t be the sustainable way of fashion, we have to turn to creativity to keep things satisfying.

That’s where individuality comes in. To dress after your style with touch of trends, rather than the contrary. To dress after your body and your preferences than buying new tops every other week for the sake of looking trendy. There’s nothing wrong with your top from three years ago, just with some personal touches you can still make it look classic and fantastic. Trends are fun, but personal and lasting style is even better!

Folks, hope you enjoyed this preview and have the best weekend ahead! Xx

  1. Really excited to see what trends 2017 will bring! Especially when it comes to makeup. 2016 has definietly been a year of heavy makeup, contouring, defined brows etc. which makes me really happy, as I enjoy wearing a full face of makeup on a daily basis (I kinda need to, with my skin lol). I wouldn’t be surprised to see us shift towards more neutral makeup next year, although I do think that heavy contouring etc. will still be popular for a little while. I would definietly like to see more individuality in fashion and beauty, also! Thanks for sharing, my lovely. xoxo


    1. Heavy contouring will probably remain for awhile indeed. As contouring makes the face looks more defined and gives some structure (which is the ultimate beauty ideal atm), it’ll will probably remain as a “fake it till you make it” part of makeup. Where it looks natural but it’s quite the heavy makeup behind it! Xx

  2. Great read!! Absolutely agree with your closing paragraph!

  3. Metallic smudgy eyes and plenty of braids sounds SO gorgeous! Really lovely point on hoping individuality will make more appearances in the new year, by the way – it’s what keeps fashion interesting and fresh!

  4. Although I’m a fan of ’90s trends (or ’90s everything, to be honest, haha), I have to confess I’m excited for this ’80s comeback. There are many fun trends from that era that I’d like to try 🙂 Thanks for the preview, lovelies!

  5. Excellent post, as always, girlie! I couldn’t agree more with your closing statement. I’m really hoping that we’ll be seeing more individuality embraced on social media, as it pertains to style and fashion. I’m all for puling inspiration from various sources, but I’m getting a little board of seeing the same running theme/trends on IG. If there is a trend of the moment, I’m not at all opposed to embracing it, but I’d LOVE to see how we can all implement that trend into our own original and unique styles; it makes things that much more fun and interesting! I think it’s also more challenging, too, and really gets the creative juices flowing! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best weekend ahead!



    1. So true that social media gets a bit “same old” when everyone are working the same trend in the same way. And all fashion bloggers kind of look the same no matter what style they usually embrace. So more individuality next year please! Xx

    1. Haha I’m not too convinced at the moment too, and I didn’t even live in the 80s so I don’t have any cringeworthy memories of it. But it’s something that’s a bit off with it. Will probably change my mind sooner or later though! Xx

  6. Love all your summaries babe, but this one in particular because of your wishes/ dreams for next year 🙂
    Youre totally right and I think I could also adapt that more – not only to follow the trends but “to make them mine” or to style them my way! 🙂

    Love it,
