9 Fashion Goals You Should Aim for This 2017
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!

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
