The looks that will be big this year.
Just like what everyone said in 2016, stick straight hair is so 10 years ago. That's why we're calling it -- this year, tighter and bolder curls (think corkscrew and coiled locks!) will take center stage once more and become the base for all the crazy hair trends that will emerge.
Still crossing over nudes and bolds
No one really suspected that when nude shades became the biggest thing early last year, it would share the crown with big, bright, and bold colours -- but hey, it happened! From mixing and matching wild and loud prints with muted tones and pieces to balancing a pastel-inspired beauty look with a strong, monochromatic ensemble, we're still expecting a myriad of paradoxical yet pleasant trends to make its way both on the runways and the streets.
Denims, chokers, and '90s grunge, in general, made their resurgence in 2016, which made us hope and yearn for more throwback trends to hit the runway once more. And one era that hugely influenced the modern fashion scene is none other than the '80s. We already have crop tops and animal prints present, so this year, why not make power suits, funky (faux) fur, chunky accessories, and even scrunchies a thing again? Give it a modern twist, perhaps?
Tips on how to wear the fresh shade of green
Every year, Pantone announces its highly awaited Colour Of The Year, and for 2017, it’s Greenery. After the numerous highs and lows of last year, it’s only fitting that a bright and zesty shade, which symbolises the reinvention and reinvigoration of the spirit – a fresh hue that not only stands for nature but symbolises a rebirth as well – be made the "it" colour for everyone to draw inspiration from for the rest of the year.
If you're wondering how to wear the colour all year, because Greenery looks more like a spring shade, don't worry. Ahead we listed down the versatile and stylish ways you can wear the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year, as well as other tones of green, without transforming into a field of grass on a warm summer day.
Wear it in a minimalist way
If you thought that there wouldn’t be a neutral version of green, well, you thought wrong. This khaki shade is the perfect hue to incorporate into your style if you like a more minimalist approach to clothes, allowing you to be right on trend without sacrificing your personal aesthetic and colour scheme.
Stick to accessories
Think that green won’t pair well with any of your current outfits? You’d be surprised at how versatile it actually is. So if you don’t want to “wear” green, the best way to incorporate the Colour of the Year is through your accessories. It will add a beautiful balance in your ensemble, and if you live in a tropical country like us, you’ll always be ‘in season’.
Go bold this 2017 and make Greenery the new white. In other words, switch up a few of your wardrobe staples for this bright shade and mix and match it with your other clothes. You’d be surprised how it can add a nice pop to your overall look. Plus, the hue has the perfect undertone to make all Asian skin tones glow from within.
Go for the dress route
When in doubt, a dress will always be your best bet as it’s easy to style. So instead of wearing a classic LBD, change it to green, and pair it with your favourite pair of white sneakers or nude heels for an elegant finish.
