Every New Year brings new trends, and 2017 is no different. But dressing in style is easy once you know which trends to follow, and which to ignore.
In fact, you can choose trendy pieces that even have the potential to stand the test of time when you pick the ones with real staying power. So, before you start shopping at Elegante, here are some tips to make sure that every piece of clothing you choose will ensure that you are the most stylish golfer on and off the course.
A big trend for 2017 is accessible to anyone: stripes. They can be thick or thin, vertical or horizontal, and straight or curved. It is also perfectly acceptable to pick bold, contrasting colors or chose tonal and subtle options.
Stripes are also easy to wear day or night, as they are as appropriate in the office as they are for a night out on the town. Just dress them up or down with your other attire choices and a selection of accessories, and you’ll be ready for any occasion.
Florals are often a feature of spring, but 2017 may see these popular prints having a little more staying power. Just like stripes, you can choose bold color combinations or something a bit more subtle. Additionally, these prints can be work or weekend appropriate depending on how the outfit is pulled together.
So don’t be afraid of embracing a bright sunflower print, a traditional mix of picture-perfect roses, or a fun geometric floral-inspired, there are options available to please almost everyone.
Standard army greens and classic khakis are also popular this year. And this includes items with traditional military cuts as well as some unexpected options. So, you can pick options that offer style, utility, or a bit of both.
These colors can also function well as neutrals, making them suitable to combine with some of the other fashion trends in early 2017 like stripes and florals.
The Key to Longevity
One of the keys to longevity in your fashion choices is to make sure that certain parts of every piece are classic. For example, choose a trendy pattern like florals or stripes, but make sure the cut of the piece is a classic look. For example, standard trouser cut pants are often suitable for the office regardless of the current trends. So, if you chose to get a striped pant with a trouser cut, you may be able to keep them in your wardrobe rotation for longer than a trendier cut.
Additionally, if you want to follow some trends, but don’t want to commit a lot of money to do it, choose accessories that are up-to-date. For example, a floral print on a bracelet is very now and can be found cheaper than many items like shirts and skirts. Then, when the trend passes, you can simply stash the piece for later (some trends always circle back around), donate it to charity, or keep wearing it if you prefer.
By focusing on trendy accessories, you can make sure the majority of your attire are higher-quality items in those classic cuts that are always an option to wear. Then, you just update your accessories and your outfits always feel fresh.
