This season, it’s all about making a statement – whether its through colour, pattern or aesthetic. Here are the top five trends that graced the runways of the spring/summer 2017 runway shows, plus the top pieces that are currently on my wish list!
This season’s bohemian cool girl is as far from the Coachella stereotype as they come; think earthy tones, organic fabrics and an eclectic edge. I am obsessing over the embroidery done on this mid-length denim skirt from Anthropologie. [Price: $168]
If there’s one trend that always makes an appearance during fashion month, it’s stripes! For spring/summer 2017, designers went bold with either bright primary colours or a more monochromatic aesthetic. I, obviously, gravitate towards the black and white. How chic is this jumpsuit? [Price: $198 USD]
Pink is the “it” colour for spring/summer 2017. While we saw a ton of blush pinks at the New York, London and Milan shows, it was the deep fuchsias and magentas that dominated the runways in Paris. I don’t think my heart could handle wearing such a vibrant hue, but I wouldn’t mind accessorizing with a barbie pink Gucci purse! [Price: $1,675]
Splashy florals never die and this season, they came in small nostalgic sprigs where they put a ’50s spin on the trend with feminine frills. Anyone else swooning over this Wilfred chiffon dress? [Price: $198]
Typically, yellow isn’t the most wearable colour. But that didn’t stop designers across all four fashion capitals from creating looks in shades from mustard and marigold to saffron and sunflower. I think I’m more in love with the sleeves here than the colour itself. [Price: $49.90]
