When it comes to trends, winter 2017 will be no shrinking violet. Styles are bold and exaggerated, with a bit of a throwback to decades gone by. Of course, this whimsical indulgence catches our eye, and we’re excited to talk trends and how items from Johnny Was designers can keep you in style.
- Pretty in Plaid
Monotone plaids walked across runways all over the globe. Typically seen in a gray or white tone, the print showcased professional power. Our designers love the trend but want to put our playful spin to it. By working in color and floral embellishments, we keep this trend feminine and inviting. You can click here to see all of the plaids in our winter selection.
- Bright Cherry Red
If this season has a calling card color, it’s red. Bright cherry was seen everywhere during fashion week. From patent boots and vibrant accessory, color pops to entire collections, red was a recurring theme. We love red as a way to showcase a bold, powerful persona, but that doesn’t mean it has to be abrasive. Take our Rona Tunic, for example. Its loose fit and flowy structure embody feminine charm. Paired with perfect needlework, this delicate red-on-red design is on trend and totally achievable no matter what your style persona is.
- If It Glitters …
From evening tights, embellished sleeves, and even sparkly boots that take us back to the 1970s, shimmer and sparkle are in. Johnny Was likes to allow women to sparkle on their own. So, instead of obvious garments made of iridescent materials, we’re opting to prioritize accessories that sparkle. Pair our Butterfly Charm Hoop with a pair of jeans and basic black top for a hint of sparkle that’s appropriate in any setting.
- Your Boots Were Made for Fashion
High heel, low heel, platform heel. Patent leather, glitter, velvet. This season it seems like boots are your best bet. We love the idea of adding our Retro Metallic Bootie to your wardrobe for a lot of reasons. In this one fashion staple, you’re incorporating several on-point trends. We worked sparkle, metallics, and a soft leather onto a low heeled bootie. Because the colors on the bootie are neutral, these boots will match a variety of outfits and pull on-trend ideas into every one of them.
- Drawstring Diva
As we mentioned earlier, styles this season are exaggerated. As such, dainty wristlets and pouchettes are best left in the closet. The style is a large bag with free-form structure. Of particular note? Drawstring closures were highly emphasized. Our designers love the breezy elegance that drawstring closures offer, and that’s why all of our backpacks have them. But you can be even more on trend with our Tiva Drawstring Tote. It’s the perfect size, closure, and length for the season. It’ll hold everything you need and make you look effortlessly put together.
