Last week we recognized the Best Affordable Style of 2017, focusing on the top products pumped out by the retail establishment. This week we’re taking a look back at the best (at least what WE consider the best) of what Dappered had to offer in 2017. Not trying to toot our own horn here. Consider this more of an exercise in recognizing what was popular with the Dappered readers, so we continue to create informative content in the New Year. And by the way, to those Dappered readers: thanks.

Yesterday’s 2017 wrap-up had an ode to fall, and today we have an ode to summer. Summer suits, summer mistakes, summer heat. And hey, even though that last article listed isn’t technically all about summer, remember the Eclipse?

2017 also saw the debut of the Goodfellow & Co. line from Target. Reaction was mainly positive, with more than one Dappered reader sending in photos from their local Target, and short personal reviews, to contribute to the post.
There’s something to be said about investing in a really nice pair of dress shoes that can be resoled and will last several years, if not decades. But there’s also something to be said about dress shoes that you can get a decent amount of wear out of, but you’re not married to for a decade or more. This was last years round up of the best affordable options out there.
Short and sweet, a rumination by our editor on trying.
