5 fashion trend hacks to instantly update your look for 2017

I still actually can't believe it's 2017. In between the constant writing of 2016 and freaking out about how fast the year is going, it can be hard to keep on top of your wardrobe. And if you thought that nailing 2017s hottest trend was going to wipe your bank clean, it's time to rejoice!

Styling the hottest trends will only take a few clever wardrobe additions. The rest? Try out these DIY fashion hacks and use pieces that are already hanging in your closet!

Here's 5 fashion trend hacks that will update your look for 2017...

Throw On Some Fishnets/ Fishnet Fabrics


You've undoubtedly seen fishnets plastered all over the New York and London Fashion Week street style pages. If not, I've got news for you: fishnets are one of the hottest fashion trends for 2017!

Wear them under torn boyfriend jeans, pop some fishnet socks under your kicks or simply embrace accessories in this punky fabric.

The Off Shoulder Shirt Hack


how to style a button up shirt as an off-shoulder top embroidered shirt

Yep: I literally unbuttoned my top and pulled it down off my shoulders. Boom! A whole new off-shoulder shirt!

You know that slouchy shirt that's been sat at the back of your wardrobe for a few seasons? Whack it out girl: it's about to make a come back for 2017!

Take your oversized shirt and button it down to about your bra (yes really!) Then, pull it down over your shoulders and boom: an off-shoulder shirt that is oh-so-2017. This little trick can make the hem of the shirt a bit uneven, so be sure to tuck it into a pair of trusty denims to stop you from looking like a hobo.

Here's some other ladies that probably did a better job than me... Not though I'm bitter or anything...

Show Us Ya Bra

Well, I can honestly say that this is the classiest advice I've ever given on The Daily Luxe! (Sorry Mum). The 2017 fashion trends give us the excuse to show our bras, without being branded a slut, ho, or  **insert hideous derogatory term meaning 'easy' here**. 

Now I'm not just telling you to take your shirt off here, there is actual method to the madness! Try teaming a feminine, sheer blouse with a dark bra, or wear a button up just low enough for a cheeky peek.

If they are doing it in Paris and New York, we can totally do it right....

Just Add Mules

Jokes asides, mules, or loafers (closed in version), are the one shoe style that you NEED in 2017. Just add mules and your outfit will instantly be updated for 2017.

Tall girls: this fashion hack was made to launch you right into the 2017 trends! Take an oversized dress that is too short and simply tuck into shorts or a skirt. Voila: a new top! Don't worry, we won't tell anyone...

Now that's enough of me waffling on... Get to your wardrobe and get going on those fashion trend hacks!


  1. I loved this post! Fishnets are everything I literally adore them. That oversized shirt hack is such a great idea, definitely gunna try it.

  2. Im obsessed your fishnet choker because it is so unique! Stunner!

  3. I love the glasses.


  4. I adore that fishnet choker, it's so chic! I love the shirt pulled down off the shoulders look, what a genius idea!

  5. I'm loving all these trends! I love it even more that it's mostly reliant on things you already have. The bra one is probably too daring for me but I think with the right styling I could wear it comfortably.

  7. This is such an amazing post babe! You definitely found so many great picks for these cool trends! Thanks so much for sharing babe <3

    XO Jessi,

  8. All of these trend hacks are so original and eye-poppingly gorgeous Rach! I'm totally obsessing over your cute fishnet choker; how damn cute for the majestic merbabe that you are ( the dolphin emoji never looked so jelly!) Off the shoulder vibes are my favourite kind and you're nailing this whole trend 100% too, I'm totally in l-o-v-e. Those girls rock the style amazingly too, but IMO you're by far the dreamiest doll rocking the style for sure! Adoring the gorgeous flower power feels to the top as well, so stunningly up spring's street. I'm hearting the show us your bra trend, although I definitely wouldn't be brave enough to rock this one, altho that polka dot and black lingerie combo is pretty stunning! You're totally mesmeric in mules too babe, and those flower power ones are gonna look killer on you! As always looking like the beautiful bombshell you are gorgeous girlie <3

  9. I really liked fishnets back in the day and I'm so happy they are back in style! The mules look really nice, I may get some this season!

  10. I'm loving these hacks and tips, girlie! I must say, I haven't really seen a fishnet choker worn and I LOVE it! I love that there are so many options for wearing the trend with a choker, tights, and socks. I've yet to experiment with it, but I've had my mind set on trying. I also love the hack for creating an OTS effect with a shirt, such a great tip for not having to go out and purchase another shirt! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!



  11. Stunning looks! Especially the fishnet pieces!

  17. slide shoes are definitely a hit and super comfy too! I just bought one and hope Zara will offer more of them, also thanks for idea of how to wear your shirt. I have to try it out! Not sure about fishnet stockings but socks definitely!

  18. I would totally buy myself one or ten pair of mules in a heart beat but a huge no no for me on the other trends. I don't think it's age appropriate for me. LOL!

  31. Love this


  32. Great post! I love the off the shoulder shirt. So easy to do. I love the flat loafers without the back heel, but I wanted some height, so it took some time to find some. >.<


  33. I love a chic loafer. Since Gucci is a little out of the budget these days I've been looking for a cool pair in the meantime. Also loving the off the shoulder. Seeing heaps of cool kids pulling their sleeves down (even with jackets) and am really feeling that style too.


  34. Haha 'show us ya bra'! I totally adore peek-a-boo effects when it comes to lace lingerie (especially black), though right now I'm obsessed with the first listed trend in this post - fishnets! Fishnet tights and socks on rotation, though I love your idea of a fishnet choker too, gorgeous! :)

  35. Me gustan todos menos los mules, aún no me hago a ellos.

    Te dejo mi nuevo look, espero que tengas una buena semana.

  36. Love your fishnet choker. What a unique statement piece. And those loafers are insane. Just love♥


  37. Your contents are always so cool!

  38. I've been obsess with the fish net trend! I remember back when it was more provocative to wear it but it's so nice to see that fashion is constantly pushing and expanding everyones minds! And I've never seen the choker version thats very interesting
    My fav trend would def be the bra peep ! haha, Nothing sexier than the silhouette of a lace bralette through a sheer dress shirt!


  39. Off shoulder and mules are my fav trend Rachel!!! Kisses from Italy and thank you for your visit,

  40. This post was awesome. I never thought of a fishnets chocker. That is just so cool and unique. I'm sure it is so hot in Australia. I would love to go visit there right now. If I come I will have to see you and visit you. More of a reason to head down under.:) But I am also in love with Mules, I am loving your picks. I also have a pair myself that aren't Gucci, but they look just as cute.

  41. Hey Sweetie:)

  43. I think there was lots to learn in this post for me too and that is basically, be creative and adventurous when it comes to fashion and you can't go wrong. Things don't have to cost a fortune to look amazing like you just proved! :)

  44. I love your discussion on all of these trends! These are some of my favorites! Your choker is unlike any I've seen before and that makes it SO amazing! I'm shooting one of these trends on Thursday so it was so fun to be able to read this post! Have a beautiful week!

  45. Loved this post so much! The fishnet choker is such a great idea! Looks fantastic on you! Also , I'm thinking of "hacking" a shirt just like you did or wearing two shirts together!! Have you seen that one? I'm obsessed!

    Bisous, Josie

  46. Indeed, fishnets are one of the hottest trends of the moment and I really adore it. Been wearing fishnet tights all fall & winter and won't stop any time soon. Adore the other tricks as well! Will have to try the OTS trick with a shirt. Wishing you a lovely week! x


  47. Loving this post! I've been seeing the fishnet trend popping up lately and your post is the first time that I've seen it worn as a choker, such a creative way to incorporate the trend!

  48. I love all these hacks! I seriously am kinda digging the fishnet trend! It's so cute and add just a little bit of detail!

  49. First off, it's insane how fast this year has gone by already! I mean march?! Already? You are so spot on with all of the trends. I especially love the fishnets and off the shoulder looks!

  50. I like this post, and the trends are right on point. I personally really like the fishnet trend. You can do so much with it and be creative.
