Black + Blue

winter outfits, cute winter outfits, winter 2017 fashion trends

One of the winter 2017 fashion trends is pairing black and blue.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

One of the wearable winter 2017 fashion trends

Maybe sterling silver may be hard to pull off and ostrich feathers hard to find, but the black and blue combo is one of the easiest winter 2017 fashion trends to pull off. You can see all 26 trends in this Vogue slideshow. 

If you’re not feeling the periwinkle blue I’m wearing, you can opt for a brighter cobalt blue which is the blue featured in the slideshow.

For apple shapes remember to cuff or choose ankle skinny jeans to shorten the leg and make sure your sweater is longer than your cropped moto jacket, preferabally below the crotch to elongate the torso.

You can also go for a fully enclosed ankle bootie for the colder months instead of a peep-toe.
