(Good ideas never go out of style)
1. SVG is hitting its prime.
Scalable Vector Graphics is popping up everywhere beautifully. First of all the file size is smaller than regular bitmapped graphics such as JPEG and GIF images and can be easily scaled to the size of the viewing window and can be adjusted in size and resolution according to the windows in which it is displayed. They can also be used as text labels and descriptions that can be searched by search engines and can easily be linked as a part of complex animations.
2. Evolution of Flat Material Design
There will be increased usability of flat design. Flat design is a simple, graphic style common in user interface UI (UI), software and Web design. The flat style contrasts a design approach that seeks to bring real-world effects to the items that are represented. Flat design also lends itself to responsive design techniques because it uses less textures/images and can be produced in the browser with newer design technologies. Flat design could confuse the users so the buttons and the contrast should be carefully used.
3. Emerging Trends in typography
Many major brands is using typography on their web sites which is a visual form of text represented in an attractive and creative way. The latest trend in web typography is to employ bigger fonts that grab the attention of the viewers. Applying big typographic elements helps visitors in paying attention to the main element of the design.

Parallax Scrolling will go mainstream. Parallax scrolling is a scrolling technique used computer graphics in which background images move more slowly than images in the foreground, creating the illusion of depth and immersion. There is no doubt about it that parallax sites look awesome. How amazing it looks when a stunner image takes up every inch of your computer screen.

3. Responsive Web Design
Pages based on RWD give great comfort. With a well-designed website, navigation is readable, page elements are intuitive and transparent content architecture. Depending on the width of the screen page will look a little different on the big screen will make full use of its capabilities, on average slightly reduce the column, and on the smaller side to convert one-column view. Turn navigation and the easy to hit with your finger, big links and images will scale to the most optimal width to change the size of fonts. More specifically show that the illustrations below.

RWD is not a perfect work, and finite, but still under discussion, there are new ways, different approaches to the subject, hybrids with other solutions, but definitely worth a look at this closely. Especially that site owners can see clearly a growing percentage of their traffic from mobile devices.
