Spring 2017 Top Trends

Author: Jason Pillay

1. Lace Bralettes

Lace bralettes as tops are a distinctive take on the boudoir style trend, think of it as step up from the well known slip-dresses. Wear it under a blazer, over a tee, or simply on its own. Wear your bralette with a loose-fit tank so that a subtle lace detail peeks out the side. Pair it with denim, pencil skirts, or wide-leg pants. Check out Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking these styles on the streets.

2. Stripes

This timeless classic is back in fashion for Spring 2017. Stripe styles go with anything from denim to the tulle trend. Stripes can be worn casual or formal, work them to your own advantage and no, you do not have to be monochromatic. Be bold or go home! Oversized, horizontal, vertical, or a mix of both, stripes will be a huge trendsetter as we are seeing on all the hottest fashion runways.

3. Florals

Flower power and playful prints is also a timeless trend PLUS you can always count on this look to put you in a good mood. Think small and simple with a floral top or an embroidered floral patch on your jeans, or just go for it with a head-to-toe total look. Florals are available in all seasons and come in a variety of colours.

4. Robes

Don't feel like getting dressed in the morning? Thought this was only for the bedroom? Think again. Put on a fancy robe and you’re ready for the day. Designers including Lacoste, Band of Outsiders, and Jonathan Simkai each had their own take on the bathrobe this runway season. Loungewear is now officially out of the bedroom.

5. Mini bags

We all love the oversized bag trend, but how about the micro bag? These tiny bags are just big enough fit your essentials - lipstick, keys and credit card, you know, the important things. Fashion houses including Chloe, Hermes, Chanel, and Valentino showed these bags with playful embellishments. Wear your mini bag with trousers or jeans, and a graphic tee for a fun spring look. Try it as a cross body bag to add some flare.

6. Socks + Sandals

This is a great way to keep your feet in both seasons and have a measure of control. Pair up a stylish or simple sock with a strappy stiletto heel. If you’re feeling risky, try stockings with sandals. Designers including Givenchy, Bottega Veneta, and Off-white each showcased distinctive styles.Try using a pattern print sock, or a thick sock, for an unexpected look.
