5 Upcoming Fashion Trends for 2017 from Your Leather Store in Denver

January 18, 2017

With a new year comes new trends. What styles will dominate the fashion world? There is quite a bit in store. From patterns to materials, wow everyone around you by being a step ahead with fashion. Here are some of the things that will make headlines this year from your leather store in Denver.

It’s All About the Shoulders

From detail to size, it’s projected to be all about the shoulders. Already a popular feature for fur coat lovers, when the seasons become warmer, you will notice more detail when it comes to shoulders unlike anything we’ve seen before. They will be larger, include more details and be focal point of many shirts, jackets and more.

The Platform Shoe Comeback

Fashion experts are predicting a comeback for the platform shoe, particularly with sandals. Some styles will resonate with those who saw this trend in the 60s and 90s, with bold and chunky accent features, while others will be unlike anything the industry has seen both statement makers and simple styles. For those who don’t fare well with an arched heel, don’t worry. It’s likely you will find flat platform shoes to enjoy. Not a fan of the platform? There will be many other shoe statements this year.

Sleek Leather

The leather jacket is such a staple in one’s closet that can last for decades. For those who love this material, you will begin to see a classic look becoming more popular. This will include slick black jackets, long in length with an overall smooth texture. Many will complete this look with skinny black pants and black heels.

Prints and Vertical Stripes

From blouses to pants, more designers will be incorporating abstract prints and vertical stripes into their clothing. Many will especially love this look on pants, which some designers are using on wide leg, flowy trousers. For stripes, we will see them used in a variety of ways from pin stripes to thick, in blouses, dresses, bathing suits, pants, skirts, dresses and more. One of the great ways to simplify a striped tank top is with a dark brown or black leather jacket, which will be perfect for the cool spring and summer nights.

The Palazzo Pant

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest in the fashion industry, you’ll notice something consistent amongst all the models—palazzo pants. This wide leg style will be one of the statements made in 2017. They will be paired with a variety of styles both slimming and flowy. In many cases, palazzo pant suits rise in popularity as well.
