With a new year coming real soon, it's always exciting to see what the world of fashion has in store for us next. While playing with different fashion trends is fun, a surefire way to ace your style game is not through fashion trends, but through your boldness and fearlessness, Candy Girls! So, to make sure that you stay on top of the fashion leaderboard this coming 2017, scroll down and aim for these style goals.
Mix and match.
Entering a new year doesn't always mean that you have to let go of all the clothes and accessories that you splurged on the previous year. Instead, look around your closet and keep the pieces that you love and are considered as new classics. Hold on to these pieces and mix 2016 fashion trends with the upcoming 2017 trends for a fashionable mixing and matching.
It's no secret that travelling can teach you so many things about different cultures and lifestyles. But you can learn so much about fashion by traveling, too! So, this 2017 widen your horizons and your fashion choices by exploring different places.
You don't have to spend your entire allowance just for one dress, Candy Girls, because there are so many local brands that are popping out from left to right that do not only offer fashionable pieces, but at totally affordable prices, too! Mix and match different local and international pieces for a 100% fashionable outfit that will definitely put you on the style map.
Let's face it, not everything that we want are always available in stores. So, get crafty with your hands and try to DIY! Love to paint? Take a page from chic Heart Evangelista and paint on your purses! Love to draw? Turn your artworks into patches and sew them on your denim jacket. While getting crafty is fun, personalized pieces never fail to add an instant dose of personality to your OOTDs, too.
Play with different accessories.
Baubles never fail to elicit joy and excitement from girls, but accessorizing, on the other hand, isn't everyone's cup of tea. This year, make it a point to add at least one accessory to your OOTD. Trust us, an accessory a day will keep the style gods at bay.
Build a strong and versatile wardrobe.
While shopping for basic pieces isn't the most fun thing to do, putting together outfits with a strong and versatile closet is. So, if you see a 2017 fashion trend that's not exactly your style, don't jump in the bandwagon just for the sake of fashion. Instead, take out your classic white button-down and dark wash jeans, and wow the crowd with your chic and timeless OOTD.
There are treasures in thrift store!
One common misconception when it comes to fashion is the higher the price tag the better the item is. Take the road less travelled by and shop in the thrift store this 2017! There are so many great finds inside. Plus, they're vintage and easy on the pocket, too! What's not to love?
Sure, a cocktail ring and a pair of studded earrings never fail to add some pizzazz to your OOTD, but at the end of the day, nothing beats a genuine smile to up the ante of your look for the day. So, this 2017 make it a point to always smile because as Audrey Hepburn once said, "The happiest girls are the prettiest."
Don't be afraid to commit fashion faux pas.
Yes, no one wants to commit a fashion crime. But making fashion mistakes is totally normal and it actually helps you find your true sense of style, too!
