Add These To Your 2017 Wish List, STAT
An effective capsule wardrobe is hinged on versatility. The trick is to populate 80% of your wardrobe with season-less, classic garments in neutral colors that fit your body and reflect your lifestyle. But that extra 20%? That's the fun part! This is where you add personality with color, texture, prints - and just a pop of trends.
What I am loving about Holiday 2017 is that most of the trends are timeless. For the first time ever - I actually advise you to INVEST in some of the trend options below because you're likely to keep it in your holiday capsule, for like, ever.
The 5 Key 2017 Holiday Trends
Holiday 2017 Trend #1 | Embellished Denim
Save or Spend? SAVE.
Why? While embellishment is timeless, denim cuts go in and out. High-waist flare legs with embroidered poinsettias might feel totally current today, but December 2020? Not so much.
Holiday 2017 Trend #2 | RED! RED! RED!
Save or Spend? SPEND (on classic styles).
Why? Do I even need to explain? It wouldn't be holiday without a pop of red! A well crafted cherry red cashmere turtleneck or scarlet suede ankle boot will make an all black outfit feel Festive #AF for decades.
Holiday 2017 Trend #3 | Velvet
Save or Spend? SPEND or SAVE
Why? Velvet is having a moment, yes. But that black velvet pencil skirt will feel as perfect for a holiday party next month as it will next year. Those velvet platform sneakers? So fun! For now.
Holiday 2017 Trend #4 | Impact Boot
Save or Spend? SPEND
Why? I never advise on buying bargain boots unless you plan on spending your entire adulthood with busted feet.
Holiday 2017 Trend #5 | Holiday Plaid
Save or Spend? SPEND and SAVE
Why? 'Tis the season and get both. Splurge on the exquisite tartan plaid silk blouse (Midnight Mass sorted for years) and save on the $7 Target blanket scarf (as soon as you trip and coat one side in peppermint latte you can repurpose it as a tree skirt).
