From perfect fishtail braids to unique fresh flower arrangements, Pinterest, the authority on all things pretty, knows what’s on trend. Heck, the digital resource is the first place we navigate to when looking for new recipes, ways to spruce up our living space, or just plain want to gawk at gorgeous wedding ideas.
This year, Pinterest is putting their expertise to use with the Pinterest 100 for 2017, which is 100 different boards that boast the most trendy things we’re all going to be eating/wearing/decorating/doing next year. Culled from its 150 million users, this trend list is definitely for the people, by the people.
Here are some of our most favourite trends from the list.
Food & Drink
This prickly fruit’s popularity is on the rise–up 420 per cent, according to Pinterest. Use it to top sorbet, or even as a meat alternative.

This technique is not only on the rise in mainstream cooking, but delicious, too. Seal your ingredients in a plastic bag, and cook it in water.

Matte is so 2016. For 2017, it’s all about the chrome tips–they’re up 570 per cent in popularity on Pinterest.
Bright blonde balayage highlights are all we’ve been asking for at the salon, but 2017 is about more ashy tones–up 240 per cent. Dark-haired ladies, rejoice!
Rather than blending your eyeshadow together, cut-crease makeup offers a dramatic, more graphic look. Some patience required.
Microblading is like the modern day version of tattooing your brows. Except they look a whole lot more natural this time around.

Pretty much the best trend of all time: pyjamas out in public! Opt for silk over cartoon-covered cotton.
One pair of footwear your wardrobe needs for spring 2017? Backless shoes. Okay, maybe two pairs.
Note: not all #buzzcuts are created equal. If you or your man is going to get one, find a barber with fade skills.
Backpacks are so 2015.
Some people are already switching back to boring old black and white socks, but not us. We’re riding the crazy sock wave for another year!
Travel on a Budget
This year, we’re swapping the all-inclusive for a little more authentic vacation. And by “authentic,” we mean cheap.
2017 is Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, and we’ll definitely be getting out into some of the exquisite national parks to celebrate.

This slower paced yoga practice will have you holding poses for longer than you’re used to.
