Summer 2017 Clothing Trends
If we had to sum up our summer trends is one word it would be “eclectic.” Each of the season’s stand-out pieces has their own unique personalities! That means you can choose to incorporate one or all of them into your wardrobe. We also love that each trend is open for interpretation; there’s no specific way to wear it, so you can add your own taste to it! We can’t wait to see more of these trends popping up as the temperatures climb.
Elevate your style this season with block heels! They give a mod feel to this staple accessory. You’ll find them in all colors and textures this summer. And let’s not forget about the comfort; that added width on the heel means you can rock these shoes from the office to a night out with the girls! Goodwill has an amazing selection of shoes year round - head to your nearest one to see if we have a pair of block heels waiting for you!
Mix & Match
Think color-clash, but in a really good way! This trend is definitely one to break you out of your style box. Its eclectic vibe has us pairing colors and patterns that we would have normally avoided. Try a floral skirt paired with colorful heels and a striped top. Or, rock an array of colorful accessories with your monochromatic office wear. There’s really no wrong way to pull this look off – simply pull together different pieces that speak to you! Don’t forget – Goodwill is a great place to stock up on mix-and-match items!
We love to carry nostalgic, throwback pieces at Goodwill, so of course this trend has us all giddy inside! Bring out your inner “material girl,” or guy, with the ‘80s trend that’s hitting the shelves this summer! You’ll see an influx of metallic, one-shoulder dresses, neon leggings and more. To keep your ‘80s look updated, you may want to resist going too kitschy. Try pairing your neon leggings with a simple, complimentary summer tunic, or an equally bright, but fitted, blazer. Or, if you’re not quite ready for a full metallic top, look for one with metallic details on the shoulders.
Ruffle details are popping up in all areas of the fashion world this season. Before you shy away from what you may think is a “girly” trend, you’ll be happy to know that 2017’s ruffles have a little edge to them! That’s right; keep an eye out for ruffles done in leather to give them a punky, yet sophisticated feel. This season’s ruffles make a statement, so get ready to see them supersized on necklines, handbags and sleeves!
