As much as we may like to think we're above trends, everyone secretly loves them. And what's more, wants to be the first to know about them.
In aid of all of us, Pinterest has released their official trend report for 2017, "Pinterest 100". It predicts the fashion, food, and home trends for the coming year.
There's a fair amount of carry-over from trends we saw in 2016, but there's also some surprising ones we didn't see coming. And all of them seem to be going back in time. After a strange year, tastemakers are feeling nostalgic about all things old-time—from '90s threads, to rustic farmhouses.
1. Bell sleeves
2. Pins, patches and stickers
Makes it easy to repurpose an old jacket or pair of jeans.
3. Slip dresses
The '90s are back.
4. Camel coats
A wardrobe staple now and forever.
5. Distressed denim
It can be a put together look when paired with the right accessories.
1. Fruit as a meat substitute
This looks like meat, but it's not—it's fruit. (Jackfruit, to be specific.) Yes, this is very weird.
2. Set-it-and-forget-it cooking
Practically designed for busy moms.
3. Vegetable chips
Like regular chips, but better for you. (So you can eat the whole bag.)
4. Quinoa bowls
Looks like the quinoa craze isn't going anywhere.
Apparently it's very easy to cook.
1. Climbing indoor plants
Bringing the outdoors inside can make for a soothing atmosphere.
2. Navy blue
Accent walls, decor pieces, etc.
3. Reclaimed wood tiling
Rustic kitchens are the best kitchens.
4. Make-your-own nightstands
If you're going to delve into DIY, start with a nightstand—it's quite simple.
5. Farmhouse style
See above note re. all things rustic. This trend has been around for awhile, but is expected to continue into 2017.
So get moving—or at the very least, hunting for some new pins.
