Thank goodness for Pinterest, the never-ending scroll of DIY projects, outfit inspiration, hair solutions, makeup products, recipes, and workouts, just to name a few. It’s basically a digital hoarder’s paradise, where you can “pin now, read later” and explore the world’s best ideas.
Year over year, pinners love to discover each other’s little favorites. And Pinterest’s 100 for 2017 is giving us all a sneak peak of what we just won’t be able to ignore on our Home feeds next year. These are just a few of our favorite predictions for what’s in store in the world of fashion, food, decor, and more!
Lapel Pins and Patches
You’ve already seen these in recent months on jackets and purses. But we’re in agreement that these are gonna start creeping your 2017 spring/summer wardrobe as you thaw out and start showing off your sassy side.
We are 100% behind anything that takes less time in the morning, and causes less damage to our hair. If you’re rocking medium to long locks, summon the summer warmth with this Beach Waves tutorial.
Microblading your eyebrows
Fuller brows have been making their way back into the fashion world thanks to natural-looking beauties like Cara Delevigne and Lily Collins. But if your own set have a too many sparse spots, microblading may be a option for you. This treatment is a semi-permanent, tattoo-like procedure that mimics the look of natural brows for up to a year.
Rest in peace, coffin nails, we hardly new ye. Storming through your local nail salon, and banishing the classic nudes to the unreachable top shelf to gather dust (at least for a little while) are über-shiny metallics in hues like gold, silver, bronze, and rose gold.
Switching to cold showers
According to Pinterest, “From smoother skin to better circulation, buzz about the benefits of cold showers is up 70%.” What do you think? Could you handle the jolt of cold water in the am? You may find it gives you the same effect as your first cup of coffee.
Yes, they look a little granny-ish. But imagine creating a tiny little wonderland for yourself, and zenning TF out in the process. Natural elements like ivy, moss, and river stones mix with miniature benches, houses, and fairy lights to create something out of Tinkerbell’s wildest dreams.
Revving-up your resume
Anyone whose recently had to look for a job will tell you that selling your skills is on par with marketing yourself as a brand nowadays. If 2017 is ringing in a change in workplace or new career, be sure to pack some punch into your first impression by creating a one-of-a-kind resume to stand out from the crowd.
TV Watch Parties
Now that we’re pretty much able to access and stream anything we want, and watch it at our leisure, planning an event around your fave program is standard. When Game of Thrones makes it’s way back into your cold, winter-loving heart, deck your castle out in Westeros house banners to welcome your kinsmen and women. ALL HAIL THE KING OF THE NORTH!
Jackfruit as a meat substitute
If you’re vegan or vegetarian, or have been thinking of making the switch, try this take on nachos.
The jackfruit is naturally sweet (similar to a fig) but like tofu it will take on the flavor you cook it in. And when cooked and flavored the texture resembles pulled meats like pork and chicken.
DIY faux-marble accents
Everything you own can be transformed into luxe pieces by incorporating this marble-effect contact paper. Do a whole wall as an accent, or revamp your barcart, bookshelf, or coffee and side tables.
We’ve seen those helpful pins before, the ones that show you which key items to pack in your suitcase to save space. But if you’re leaning towards a minimalist approach to your life, capsule wardrobes focus on maintaining a small collection of useful items, saving you time, money and space. In no time you’ll eliminate closet clutter by incorporating an easily mixed-and-matched wardrobe.
Last year we couldn’t get enough of the never-ending display of gorgeous gams. But, it doesn’t look like crop-tops are going anywhere soon, and instead are steadily creeping up our midriffs to maximum bare-it-all levels. It may be time to channel your inner Spartan warrior and work the shit out of your obliques.
