12 Trends That Prove Minimalism Is On Its Way Out

Every February, you can count on the street style set to hit fashion week in the coolest outfit creations, setting the tone for what’s in. While we admire those who proudly pile on the most out-there looks (think fuzzy ombré coats, sequined slip dresses, and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink layers), this go around, we're keeping tabs on the approachable trends that have the power to radiate beyond the blogger/model-off-duty/fashion-editor crowd. Because peacocking isn't for everyone.

So what are the accessible, not-at-all-intimidating styles we're tracking? They run the gamut from rose-embroidered denim and mesh underlayers to bright suede sneaks and oversized outerwear. Aside from a few updated basics, these bolder finds — which you can shop now at Nordstrom — offer the perfect alternative to those over the minimal trend. Watch out, 'cause once you scoop up these fresh buys, your #OOTD game will be untouchable.

Rose Embroidery
The denim move for 2017? Overstated floral embellishments. Fancy them on jackets, light-wash jeans, and denim minis. Don't be surprised if the rose motif pops up on phone cases, totes, and dad hats, too.

Lace-Up Booties
When it's not quite warm enough to break out your mules or backless loafers, strut your stuff in a sleek lace-up boot. The patent finish on this pair will liven up any ensemble.

Bold Sweatshirts
The more oversized, the better. We also dig the kitschy tropical print on this coral number.

Sunny Yellows
Has millennial pink finally been dethroned by a rival hue? Not entirely, but mellow yellows are definitely giving the trendy color a run for its money. We'll likely see these easy shorts paired with tights, platforms, and a cozy sweater.

Graphic-Sleeve Tees
The ubiquitous merch shirt is one trend that's showing no signs of letting up. Personalize your own or opt for one in a vibrant flame color to stand out from the pack.

The It Sneaker
While we pretty much lived in our Superstars and Yeezys last year, this season we're betting our money that the suede Gazelle becomes the fashion-girl go-to.

Gigantic Totes
This new, XL shape will be taking over the bag game, proving that bigger is definitely better.

Slouchy Denim
These days, pretty much any denim fit goes, but we're particularly keen on the roomy variety. A loose, slouchy pair is clutch when you need to move from show to show with ease.
