As every fashion blogger will tell you, some trends will come and go faster than you can say, “Where can I get that?”
But others have some serious staying power.
Here are some of the blogger style trends that have stuck around in 2017.
The ones that are simply refusing to budge.
If you’re looking for proven style and fashion trends that will elevate your wardrobe for the coming seasons, take a look at our top 9 must-have items as seen on our favourite bloggers.
1. Aviator Specs
The classic aviator is a blogger fave, and a classic piece of eyewear for all face shapes.
But in 2017, we’ve seen this blogger-inspired trend evolve into more than just a festival eyewear must-have to keep the sun’s rays at bay.
The aviator silhouette has become a prominent shape for prescription glasses too, and it looks like it’s here to stay.

2. Bell Sleeves
Bell sleeve tops have been all the rage this year, and it doesn’t look like this trend is about to go away anytime soon.
With all the biggest fashion bloggers backing it, including The Blonde Salad writer Chiara Ferragni, bell sleeves and big ruffles are going to continue to be a big wardrobe must-have for the rest of 2017.
3. Coat Slinging
Wearing your jacket as a cape is one of those impractical trends that seems to have stuck, especially for camera-friendly bloggers and posers who love to embellish their Instagrams with #OOTD posts.
Whether you’re layering up for the winter, or slinging on a denim jacket for the summer, wearing your chosen piece over your shoulder (instead of using the armholes) seems to be a blogger-approved look that everyone is loving.
4. Mirrored Sunglasses
One of the hottest eyewear trends right now is the flash lens, a favourite look amongst style bloggers, Instafamous celebs and super models such as Kendall Jenner or the Hadids.

5. Cute Poms
They first appeared on beanie hats but as we’re well into SS17, the pom trend has proved its worth as an all year round feature.
One that works in all seasons.
Hats, caps, jackets, shoes, bags and headpieces can all do with a pretty pom embellishment.
This year, fashion has been head over heels in love with geos.
In prints, in accessories, and also in eyewear – geometric shapes and designs have been absolutely everywhere.
If you love mixing circles with squares and triangles, be sure to check out our latest Fendi sunglasses collection.

Whether you go for flats or heels, this shoe trend is set to be a biggie for many summers to come.
And some of the biggest designer shoe labels to look out for include Miu Miu, Aquazzura, Gucci, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Marni and Tom Ford.

Teensy weensy ‘microbags’ (such as the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour) may not have earned their spot in our list of enduring style trends (because they’re simply too small to store essentials).
But, mini bags and downsized versions of big totes (such as the Michael Kors Selma Mini or the Givenchy Antigona Mini) have proved to be popular (and practical) in 2017.
So these handbags are definitely worth the investment.
9. Vintage Specs
If you want to inject a new lease of life into your 2017 eyewear collection, follow in the footsteps of our favourite style bloggers and instagram stars (including the likes of Kendall Jenner) and go vintage with your next pair of glasses.
This look is so hipster, so it’s perfect for alternative dressers and those who don’t like to follow mainstream trends too much.
