I’m already excited and thinking about our Holiday plans this year. How about you? Every year in the Fall I start rolling Christmas decorating, fashion and food ideas around in my head, and as soon as mid-November hits I’m ready to go. I use a lot of things as inspiration for my Holiday style – my personal taste, nature, history, new products, fellow bloggers and designers – but one of my favourite style resources are magazines. There’s nothing quite like the perfect styling and photography that’s found in a magazine, and today with the help of Texture I want to share with you some 2017 Holiday trends that I’m loving this year!

15 years ago I was a sucker for fashion & beauty magazines like Glamour and Cosmopolitan, but now my taste has drifted more to general homemaking content like Good Housekeeping and home decorating magazines like House & Home and Country Living. With Texture, I have access to over 200 magazines in one app, so I can enjoy all of the content and inspiration that I love – especially when I’m prepping for big holidays and events!

While browsing through all of my favourite magazines on Texture, I started to bookmark of all of the Holiday 2017 trends that I’m loving and want to try to incorporate into my home and my fashion this coming season. Remember – I always encourage you (and me!) to decorate, dress and style for what YOU love, but tracking trends can be fun and inspirational. You simply use only the trends you love and that will work for you!

Holiday 2017 Decor Trends

  1. Layered whites still seem to be having a moment in Christmas decor this year.
  2. Pops of red (especially natural pops) are making an appearance.
  3. All shades of green – from mint to olive to forest – are huge for the Holidays.
  4. Natural elements seem to be here to stay – especially those with a rustic vibe.
  5. Modern farmhouse textiles like burlap, linen and cotton are prevalent.
  6. Black and white is another modern farmhouse inspired colour trend that’s getting dressed up for Christmas.
  7. Accents of matte brass seems to be the metallic of choice for the Holidays this year.
  8. Hygge inspired textures like sheepskin rugs, hand knit blankets and soft linens make the season cozy.
  9. Lots of natural greenery – and not just the Christmas tree! (Think: fresh wreaths and garlands.)

Holiday 2017 Fashion & Beauty Trends

Lots of beautifully textured fabrics like velvets, wools and embroidered textiles are having a huge moment this season as are deep jewel tones in both fashion and makeup. I’m loving these luxe looks!

Holiday 2017 Food Trends

Lots of Holiday recipes I’m loving in my favourite magazines are “traditional with a twist”. For example, a twist on a classic turkey dinner could be a sheet pan turkey dish with unexpected seasonings and sides. Pumpkin pie might get an update as a cheesecake with a chocolate addition.

Tell me: What Holiday 2017 trends do YOU love this year? Do you start your planning early like I do?
