Keep a vigil for these upcoming fashion trends, on their merry way to a shop near you. From sleeves to stripes, 2017 will be alive with weird and wonderful style statements for the fashionista in all of us.
In the Pink
Rosy Outlook for 2017
Yep, everything is coming up ‘rosy’ this year as pink tops the fashion colour charts. Allure Magazine
tells us brands like Céline, Valentino, Gucci, Loewe, have already sent out several “rose-hued” ensembles for spring 2017. This will ensure the pink colour’s predominance for many more months.
Just in Case
Those of us who love big bags, and purses may feel a little short-changed this year! “It”cases are all the rage for 2017 like Louis Vuitton’s version of the iPhone style-cases! Chloe, Valentino and Dior also reduced their bags just for the essentials– even lipstick cases strung around the body and tiny bags hanging on wrists! However, a little larger will also be in vogue. At the more roomy end of the scale there’s Balenciaga’s inflated thigh-slammers and Céline’s vintage-looking lady bags.
Getting Your Stripes
Stripes are back in- bold or thin! From chunky sweaters to fine fabrics, you won’t wonder where the lines are. Get ready for stripes in all colours too that are topped off with even stripy boots!
Feminine Ruffles and Sleeves
Fabric is overflowing this Spring/Summer Season in the shape of ruffles on dresses and blouses as well as ample sleeves that are cropped, overflowing and ballooning. The ruffles will especially be noted in romantic dresses that were shown at Dolce & Gabbana as well as slightly more serious versions for daily office wear.
Strong shoulders are back as a retro nod to the 80s. Boxy shapes were seen on the Balenciaga catwalk. If the average consumer feels they are a little too broad, a toned-down version will still be the in-look of the day this year.
Tell It Like It Is
Statement words will be everywhere with slogans on t-shirts and dresses. Whether political, personal or just sassy, the printed word on clothes is back. Designers have thought up all sorts of activist and empowering messages to see you through the year. Stella McCartney, well-known for her designs as well as her environmental passions has, for example, created designs that read, “Girls, Thanks, And No Fur, No Leather”.
Definitely there’s a real feminine leaning this year in fashion and a flair for the romantic, coming into the Spring of 2017.
