On a global scale, 2016 was definitely the year of change. In fact, it was hard to keep up with this movement of mass uncertainty. It is interesting to note that, many of the trends for 2016 were centred on pale floaty colours and prints. However, a new year means a new start. Decisions have been made, the world keeps turning, and now is the time to be bold. This is reflected in the hot new trends of 2017. Instead of a gentle whisper, the latest trends are really something to shout about. They are bright, daring, dynamic, and creative. These are all qualities that you too can easily embrace. Below are some key ideas on how you can inject some boldness into your life.
Be bold in your home
The Pantone Colour institute has announced that the colour of the year for 2017 is Greenery. Last year Pantone selected two colours, the pale blue serenity and the dusky pink Rose Quartz. By comparison, Greenery is a much stronger colour: full of zest and brightness. This shift is an opportunity for you to inject some life into your home. Gone are the days of pastels and greys, instead it is time to embrace fresh new colours. Greenery is also the perfect companion to this year’s botanical trend. If you want your home to be up to date with the latest movements in interior design, be sure to purchase items covered in floral prints and large leaves. Imagine you are trying to bring the outside in, and as luck would have it, the outside in question is a tropical island. Cover your house in large, leafy plants. Introduce prints with a natural theme, and even consider the concept of wicker furniture.
Be bold in your transport
If you are considering purchasing a car, don’t forget your new motto: bold is back. It is easy to think that smaller cars equal cheaper insurance, but this is rarely the case. In fact, larger vehicles have a range of added benefits. Be bold and consider the Ford Ranger. This SUV offers car-like handling, but comes with an amazing amount of space. Not only this, but with a vast range of 33 models to choose from, you will be sure to find the perfect model for you. Don’t fret that your boldness will result in extra expenses, as you can purchase the Ford Ranger as a used car. This means you will get more for your money. Instead of settling for a cramped vehicle, be bold and remember: big is beautiful.
Be bold in your fashion
A further area where boldness is definitely in style, is fashion. To understand this, you need only look at the new bathrobe trend. This year, New York fashion week saw the introduction of bathrobe chic. In a world where designers are using bathrobes as the latest accessory, the only way to keep up is to be bold in your choices. Vogue also noted that “The spring/summer catwalks served up an eye-popping bouquet of florals” and referred to this trend as a wave of fashion optimism. Therefore bright colours are also a must-have. Don’t shy away from anything, try it all! Wear the most eye popping items you can find, be daring with your accessories, and dare to make a statement.
