Fashion Trends We’re Looking Forward to in 2017

Woooo new year, new season—ergo, new you. What that means is an improved and a very-2017 (and not, ugh, 2016) wardrobe update that hits all of spring’s major trends. Although, let’s not dismiss 2016 in its entirety—it’s more of an evolved look rather than a complete fashion overhaul. Take utilitarianism, for instance. The core elements are still there, like the khaki textiles and no-nonsense attitude, but there’s more of a polished flair in the form of a clean-cut (albeit exaggerated) shape and playful parachute toggles, used to highlight the silhouette.

But then again, long, navel-grazing pendants can most definitely be seen as backlash to the never-ending choker trend that dominated the good part of 2016. Take a look at the fashion trends we’re looking forward to the most in 2017.

The Best Faux Fur Pieces to Rock This Season

When it comes to fur in fashion, a coat is the first to come to mind. And while we saw plenty of those on the runway (striped and dotted at Fendi, a bubblegum pink one at Gucci, a patchworked piece at Proenza Schouler), what we didn’t expect to find was a flurry of fur flourishes that decorated everything from detachable collars at Jason Wu to cross-body stoles at Diane von Furstenberg.

And instead of getting into everything that makes fur one of the most divisive topics in fashion, we’re jumping right to the benefits of its appearance (emphasis on appearance), like how it can introduce texture (read: dimension) to an outfit or how ‘grammable a cute fur pom can be, or how it can make you feel real fancy. As such, we rounded up 17 pieces of faux fur everything. We threw in a few coats, a shearling skirt, and paneled tops, along with tiny touches of fur, like the trim of a hood, the strap of a purse, or a perky pom on top of a beanie or sneaker. Scroll through to check out (and shop) our favorites, below.

Luggage Brands Celebrities Love

Many celebrities never surrender fashion, even when they’re just strolling through a domestic airport terminal. That’s why we almost always see stars step off the airplane looking runway ready. And if a pair of shoes is the statement piece of daily life, than the suitcase is certainly the focal point for any travel uniform.

A number of luxury brands have become popular with Hollywood’s glitterati: Olivia Palermo always totes Rimowa luggage, as does Cara Delevingne. Milla Jovovich, Gwyneth Paltrow, Macklemore, Diane Kruger, and Cameron Diaz are other A-listers who have been seen rolling the distinctive bag.

Gigi Hadid and Jessica Alba, on the other hand, have both been spotted with the LOMS cream-colored carry-on. And a slew of stars such as Emmy Rossum, Karlie Kloss, and Cindy Crawford love Tumi’s fashionable and functional pieces.

And it’s not just the women who take their baggage seriously. Eddie Redmayne always has his vintage suitcase on hand, while Alexander Skarsgard is partial to a Mulberry trolley. Channing Tatum and Ben Affleck were both seen rolling through airports with their Tumi pieces, while Josh Duhamel loves his all-black LOMS rolling bag.

Starlets like Vanessa Hudgens, Elle Fanning, and Malin Akerman have been drawn to Patricia Nash suitcases.The brand has built its reputation on high-quality leather bags that are perfect for globetrotters.

11 Under-$150 Holiday Clutches That Look Insanely Expensive

As much as we love cross-body evening bags and teeny-tiny top-handle totes, there’s nothing that comes close to permanently replacing our beloved clutch. Small, sure, but it radiates a level of chicness that more than makes up for its diminutive size. It communicates an ability to edit and downsize your essentials (no one will ever know how much you actually hoard receipts or every kind of lip balm under the sun), and it paints an image of you at your best—living the best life, as though you’re off to attend just one of the many fancy events you’ve been invited to for the night.

And now that we’re heading into the holiday season, let’s bring that image to real life with 11 clutches that all ring in under $150, but look ridiculously expensive. Yes, we did the impossible. Looking for a festive party-ready purse to hold in your grip? We found rainbow glittery envelopes and iridescent beaded clutches. Into something more subdued? We found understated pouches (that will literally go with any outfit) and elegant satin options. Start shopping, below.
