With 2017 in full blow (can you believe it’s March next week?), it’s high time to visit couture, luxe, and style with a formal trend report. In case you need some help, India Boulevard is here to rid all your fashion faux pas woes and highlight what’s hot in style as we speak!
Not only do we take inspiration from everyday street style and our favorite fashionistas, we take a look to see what was trending on the runway this past week at New York Fashion Week 2017. So without any further delay, here are five fashion trends you need in your closet this year (and maybe every other year from here on in):

For everyone who thought florals were “so last year,” you may need to think again. The runway, and India Boulevard, both (still) introduce classic florals in hues fit for every season. Now, you may think this print is best suited for the spring/summer, well once again, we suggest you hold that thought—fall seems to be the new season for florals to flourish! Designers from Coach, Mischka, and Dennis Basso (along with others) showcased more monotonous floral pieces for the fall at New York Fashion Week 2017. Check out some floral-inspired outfits below to gear up for a blooming fall season!

2. The Graphic Tee
Cute, fun, and inspirational are words that come to mind when we talk about this fashion trend. Graphic tees have honestly been around for ages but they came to the forefront quite recently, and New York Fashion 2017 turned this style into a statement piece. Models from Prabal Gurung donned “We will not be silenced” on their shirts as they strut in style down the ramp—now THAT’S a statement!
Fun fact: Apparently, the trend of the graphic tee was first introduced in the original “The Wizard of Oz.” If this news is something to go by, then the graphics tee trend is 78 years old!
We don’t think the hype over textures will ever get old: The Alexander Wang and Adidas collaboration gave us netted shorts; Lacoste presented bright red, and leather, a-line dresses; Altuzarra gave us all the feels with frill! And now, see how India Boulevard just stepped up the game and took texture to a whole new level!

Cut-outs are the new “it” thing. This trend exudes a perfect mix of sass, edge, and elegance—nothing too revealing yet a bit of spunk with just the right cuts! And in case you missed it, cut-outs came in all forms this year on the ramp.
