Try These Spring Runway Trends to Instantly Update Your Look
It’s almost time for spring dressing, even if the weather is still horrifically wintry in much of U.S. But the good news is you can get in on spring ’17 trends in a totally weather-appropriate way.
Straight off the spring and pre-fall 2017 runways and into our closets, let’s check out the four trends to get you started moving from sweater weather to #SB2017.
Color of the Season: Lemon Yellow
Queen B’s reach has hit the Spring runways with her now legendary yellow ruffled “Hold Up” dress. The Lemonade singer’s music video gown seems to be behind the sudden inspiration of the new IT color. Designers such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Fendi, and Victoria Beckham have proudly displayed their love of the shade in their 2017 lines. The sunny shade of this color speaks for itself, so if you dare to rock it, keep it simple.
Go-To Accessory: Wide Belts
Mainly more popular while being worn over a dress, wide embellished belts are the new stable every girl needs in her wardrobe. Designers such as Alexander McQueen and Chanel have showcased their love of the new trend having a varied range from gowns to maxi dresses. The wider and more eccentric the belt the better when it comes to following this trend.
Best Way to Rebel: Visible Bras
We have now reached the day where bras are no longer something hidden under our clothing, but are proudly put on display. Designers such as Oscar De La Renta, Prada, and Moschino strongly stand behind this bold new display. From wearing it under unbuttoned blazers to having it be the top half to a tulle skirt ensemble, there are limitless possibilities. Anything goes with this new trend from ruffles, leather, silk and paisley prints. It’s time to be bold and make your seductive, yet classy wardrobe statement.
Upgrade of the Season: Waterfall Ruffles
This year, designers have taken a different approach to the ruffle trend. Labeled the Waterfall Effect, this new look takes ruffles to a whole next level. Cascading not only behind you, but in front, these ruffles give even the simplest dress the appearance of being a modern day ballgown.
Designers such as Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli, and Oscar De La Renta practically swore by it, keeping it fresh in a wide variety of spring bright colors and patterns. The more ruffles the better, and you can try out this trend paired with that new wide belt you just added to your collection.
