The Best of Polyvore 2017

Sure, a few faves kept us in our comfort zone in 2017 (long live King Kylie!), but this year offered up some big surprises.

Reign On 
Once again, Kylie Jenner takes the lead as Polyvore’s top female fashion icon. Selena Gomez may rule other corners of the interwebs, but for style aficionados, she’s #2 (so close we still love you!). Right now, it’s still all about the Kardashian-Jenners. They dominated the red carpet at the Met Gala (fashion’s prom). Never before has a family holiday card been so hotly anticipated when was the last time we were so excited to see a snap of kids and their parents dressed in matchy-matchy jeans and tees? Rounding out the top five: Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Gigi Hadid. Congratulations, ladies!

Boy Oh Boy 
The top male fashion icons exploded onto the scene the K-pop boy-band, BTS. You may have never heard of them before this year’s AMAs their first US TV appearance but as thousands of screaming fans can attest, they are on fire! This South Korean group beat out Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan combined.

Fake On Top
Outerwear has gone in a bold new direction this year. Forget the tried-and-true trends of yesteryear  right now, it's all about the statement pieces. Velvet blazers, camo jackets and capes are all in the top five. Sure, there’s one classic favorite, the camel coat, that has held on to the #2 spot. But this year’s winner? It’s 100% fake: faux fur is Polyvore’s favorite way to stay warm.

Is Athleisure Dead? 
Is it finally time to retire the sneakers-with-everything look? Maybe not quite yet. Polyvore members’ favorite brands still include plenty of sporty picks. Converse is still our #4 brand, and Adidas weighs in at #2. Just out of the top 5, the world’s biggest athletic brand, Nike, is in the 6th spot. But athleisure enthusiasts are getting muscled aside; this year’s biggest brands 6 of the top 10 are luxury. The top spot goes to design powerhouse, Gucci. Their embellished bags, embroidered and bold footwear, and graphic patterns dominated Polyvore this year. With Chanel, Valentino, Givenchy, Saint Laurent and Prada also in the top 10, luxury brands have edged out their casual counterparts. So while it’s not yet time to put away your comfy faves, it may be time to upgrade. In 2017, luxury beat out athleisure.

Beauty Cult
One of the biggest surprises of the year? The Polyvore community loves their cult beauty brands. It wasn’t the big players with supermodel spokespeople that took the top five spots. It was the brands that garner rave reviews and word-of-mouth love that won. Case in point: the #1 beauty brand of 2017? Anastasia! Eyebrow queen Anastasia Soare’s eponymous line rocketed to the top spot with her pretty eyeshadow palettes and her killer eyebrow makeup. Benefit, Sephora, Too Faced and Nars take the next spots in the top 5. Sometimes smaller can be mighty!

Polyvore’s global style community knows what’s trending in pop culture, fashion and beauty. Did you agree with their picks? Or did your faves get no love? Let us know on our social channels @Polyvore! This year brought lots of surprises--here’s hoping next year is just as amazing!
