The holidays are a time for family, friends, and of course, fashion! Put the ugly Christmas sweaters down and get ready to hear all about what’s trending right now in the countdown to the new year. The weather outside may be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your look has to be! Make this holiday season your most fashion-forward yet. Below, we’ve outlined what’s hot right now, and some of the biggest looks may surprise you.
Certain holiday outfits are considered classics, and this year, a number of them have made a return. Only now, they’ve been updated into modern, chic looks that you’ll scramble to get your hands on! Remember the classic velvet dresses from years past? They’ve been reimagined as velveteen suits in stunning colors, such as crimson and emerald. A well-tailored suit can make your legs look incredible, and the material is so thoroughly associated with Christmas, it evokes a timeless, nostalgic feeling that is perfect for the holidays.
Red is huge this year. “Power” reds are being seen everywhere, on celebrities and street fashion alike. Bust out the bold with a powerful scarlet velveteen suit, and start the new year off right.
The velvet trend isn’t just for women either. Men have been sporting gorgeous velvet suit jackets, which look sharp and contemporary in navy blue and black.
Polka dots are back! They’re being seen everywhere, including on celebrities such as Hailey Baldwin and on the runways of Balenciaga, Jacquemus, and Loewe. While you may remember being dressed in polka dots as a child, this trend is anything but juvenile. It has returned with a vengeance, and some of the modern spins it’s sporting right now include bold black and polka dots on sheer material. Update your little black dress with this hot trend.
Speaking of sheer material, the biggest trend right now is unquestionably veils, transparencies, and overlays. Remember when cut-outs were huge a few years back? Well, now sheer fabric is sashaying down runways, and it’s making a big statement.
Happy holidays, and may the last days of 2017 inspire you to give your wardrobe a Christmas twist.
