Hello dolls!

I’m so obsessed with the lightweight, wide-leg pant trend that I’ve seen in brights, pastels, and whites! These wide legs and palazzos are typically seen during warmer months, but they have graced the NYFW SS17 runways. We’ve taken a step back from the edgy, skinny pant trend of fall 2016 and moved the structure up top with cinched waist, corset-inspired tops, and belted trench coats. These are the perfect contrast with the wide pant.

I paired my white slacks with a matching vest-dress peaking under this kimono-inspired coat for a structured, layered effect. The dress-over-pants trend flops in and out fashion, and I’ve honestly never really been a fan. This season, it’s back, and one of my New Year’s Resolutions was venture out and attempt things that I normally wouldn’t. So, I guess this counts?

Lastly, I topped the look off with my adorably-nostalgic cassette tape bag. Tiny bags have also had its rounds of peaks in fashion and are certainly the definition of fashion over function!

What is your favorite 2017 trend?
