Black Sheer Tops


1. Black Sheer Tops

Those who don't already know, the 90s made a huge comeback this year. Sheer black is just one of these awesome trends. Whether it's a plain bralette or cami underneath, the goth-inspired look rocks year round.

P.S. To get styling tips for wearing these like the example above, visit Ashley's blog here.

Block Heels


2. Block Heels

Once again, 90s really take effect. Think Night at the Roxbury and Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. Colorful thick platform heels with straps are back in action.The summer these babies especially shined. I admit, I absolutely love these.



3. Velvet

Yes, another 90s! Any and all shoe styles, tops, pants, bodysuits, jumpsuits, dresses, skirts - you name it, they have it in velvet this year. As the holiday season approaches, we continue to see more reds and maroons grow in this category. Personally, I never been into velvet especially for shoes.. but somehow this year is starting to change my opinion about some dresses and skirts.

Mesh Workout Leggings


4. Mesh Workout Leggings

Need I say more? Although I can't recall mesh styled leggings in the 90s, black mesh was still a very-in-trend during that time (and obviously workout leggings were too).This legging trend started in black but grew so popular that nearly every active-wear company sells them now, in so many different designs. They are the trendiest and most comfortable workout (or lounging) pants ever.

Fishnets + Denim


5. Fishnets + Denim

Fishnets have always been around, but the grunge-inspired trend now pairs well with denim. Whether it's shorts or stylish ripped jeans, this peek-a-boo look is young, fresh, and daring.



6. Chokers

The best accessory of the year. These are EVERYWHERE. All kinds, all over. I love them so much! They even inspired several tops and dresses with a choker neck too. Can't get enough of them!

Bomber Jackets


7. Bomber Jackets

In my opinion, one of the most fashionable trends of 2017 is the bomber. They are huge in both men and women styles.They are also a year round jacket that can complete any outfit to be edgy. Some have embroidery on the backs while others are plain and simple.


8. Vintage Graphic Tees & Hats

Popular music artists, bands and television shows from the 90s have made a comeback to graphic tees. Although several are vintage, there are several with modern quotes and phrases this year. These also appear on baseball caps and beanies (especially specifically about the weekend, brunch, or champagne.)
