Here are the 8 Fashion Trends to Look Forward to in 2017

"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak,” that is according to celebrity fashion stylist, Rachel Zoe. The way you put together yourself from the head, down to your toes, indeed, is how you make an impression, most especially in this growing culture of “Hi. Goodbye.”

Bring it on, Spring.
Spring, unlike the cold and gloomy months of winter, is a time to welcome the sunshine and therefore a great time to go see, sit, have a tea and chat with the lovely people in your life. When you do bask in the sun, style it up in the best fashion trends for spring. Here are our top picks:

Metallic florals and pastels.
Hands up to the extraordinary showing from Elie Saab. She lined up a delicious combination of mini dresses and sheer, long gowns in metallic pastel and glitter frosted fabrics. Who would have thought that glamor, star quality (the clothes literally have stars on them) and comfort can all be rolled into one —and, for the warm months of spring. The collection also showed what look like Kimono inspired dresses with neckline cuts running across the chest, all the way to the waist level. We also loved the glittery ball caps, very clever!

9 Best Anti Aging Natural Remedies and Skin Care Secrets

Way before beauty became a highly commercialized staple, the women and men of the world have been obsessed with eternal youth and beauty that never fades. Unfortunately, humankind’s preoccupation with science has driven most of these traditions to oblivion, although very little is understood about them, much to our disadvantage.

Stylish people

This is the decade when handheld gadgets and social media ruled and have now officially taken over our lives — for better AND for the worse. In styling terms, these two massive tech developments have set aside the kingmakers of bygone years. All of a sudden, anybody can be the celebrities they once could only look up to on boob tube.

It could be this newly founded and still growing exposure to the public eye that are prompting countless women and men to want to look presentable, fashionable, someone that their followers or subscribers can potentially learn to love to watch.

Upping the stylish you

Ever wondered how some women could preserve their youth much better than others can? You’ve probably heard some secrets being whispered all over about how women like Madonna, Jennifer Lopez or Halle Berry stay young and sultry and still looking at the top of their game way beyond 40.

Forget about the rumors and set aside the hearsay. Throw that 80-something list of beauty tips because below is a run through of the only 10 beauty tips you need to know to stay young and beautiful whether you’re 20 or well over 60:

1. Use sunscreen religiously. It’s one part of your beauty routine that you don’t want to miss out on a sunny day, and certainly not even when the weather news bulletin is announcing strong winds, storm, and snow.

When you do, always do it gently, particularly when you have aging, delicate skin. Your best exfoliants are alpha hydroxy acids, including lactic, glycolic and citric acids, which may come separately or included in your nighttime creams. Deep exfoliate at least twice weekly to see supple skin all the time. FULL POST
