If you are not really into updating your wardrobe according to the Fashion Week trends but would like to know just the basics of what's in for the season or year, then you have come to the right place. Being a Fashion Blogger, I am constantly looking at the ramp walks, the Fashion Weeks and off course the other Fashion Bloggers. So here are some of the trends from 2016 that are still going strong for 2017.
The choker game is still going strong in 2017. Most celebrities and fashion bloggers strutted the main fashion streets wearing various types of chokers. From the Hadid sisters to the Kardashians, this is one accessory which makes even a drab tee come alive.
Chokers have been long associated with high fashion from the Victorian era. These days chokers come in all textures from velvet, lace, denim, plastic or leather. They can be dainty or chunky, gothic or more girlie depending on your preferred style.
2. Basic Tees
Basic tees are huge for Spring/Summer 2017. From the Gucci's almost sold out tee (find pic below) to simple captioned tees, basic tees are the way to go whether styled with denims or skirts.

A basic white tee is a one of those timeless pieces which you shouldn't be living without. It is like a little black dress in your wardrobe, except for a more day to day use. The fit should ideally be a lived in one, with either a straight neck or a v-neck. A pocket detail could be an added embellishment but a simple one is effortless and classic. Captioned tees are another alternative to the basic tees. You can be bold and strong or subtle and soft.
Ruffles are going to continue to be big in 2017. From ruffles on skirt, dresses to shirts - the bigger the better, the more the merrier. Whatever you decide to buy for the year, a ruffled top is a must have for any girl looking to stay on trend. Whether its a crisp white ruffled shirt or a printed ruffled blouse, its a statement piece for sure.

4. Metallic Skirts
Metallic pleated skirts were a big hit in 2016 and continues to be so in 2017. They have the right amount of oomph while still keeping it demure for a day time brunch look. Either paired with a sneakers, 'ugly-goodlooking' mules or soaring heels, they are definitely guaranteed to make heads turn as you walk into a room.
5. Bell sleeves
Large bell sleeves are another must have for your wardrobe for 2017. All top bloggers to celebrities are seen sporting the oversized sleeves in dresses, shirts, sweaters and blouses. The style crowd, fashionistas and fashion editors love a bit of drama in their outfits and what better drama than a large bell sleeves. Worn either under a jacket or a slip dress, oh so stunning is the statement that comes to mind.
