A Return to Culture: The Fashion Style of America's First Lady Forecasts the Societal Trends

Melania Trump, America's First Lady, is featured by Caroline Leaper, Fashion News and Features Editor at The Telegraph, in 'A modern take on femininity and elegance': designer Alice Roi reveals the story behind Melania Trump's First Lady look.

What are the general trends that we might forecast for the near future?
For those, we looked to art in its broadest definition.

Trends in 2017 have been suggested at the linked websites as follows in fashion (femininity), art (reconnection with nature), visual design (return to organic roots, uncompromising clarity), interior design (vintage looks made modern), literature (Norse mythology), theatre (quality) and music (streaming and vinyl, nostalgia). These can serve as forecasting or parallel signals of coming or existing trends in politics and society generally.

One might conclude that the trends have a definite direction and are found also in various "law and order" developments in law and politics worldwide.
