More Practical Trend Picks for Spring 2017 – Part 2
In our last post, we were obsessing over the best trends of Spring/Summer 2017. We mentioned about the ways in which designers and brands worked with bright colours and mixed stripes. In this post, we are going to take the series ahead with a few more trends. These are runway ideas that are easy to follow and don’t need a lot of investment. After all, shopping in budget is also a trick that only some people know. If you are looking to shop for spring, these are your safest picks!
Singled out: If you remember spring 2016 trends, you probably know the amazing use of shoulder cuts throughout the season. A lot of designers worked with special cuts and designs that emphasized the neck and shoulder area in a very loud way. In 2017, the trend makes a comeback but with a difference. Instead of regular looks, you have one shoulder cut-outs that make an instant statement. Monse, Tibi and CG were some of the brands that worked with this trend in their own ways. It is more like a quirky take on the classic idea – Perfect for spring!
Floral for my lady: Spring and floral prints – This is easily one of the most clichéd ideas ever! However, if you are a fashionista who loves to experiment and repeat her clothing, this trend will surely make sense. Chloe, Balenciaga, and Erdem were some of the brands that worked with head-to-toe floral prints. The looks were a mix of both small and large motifs, so there isn’t one thing for everyone. The idea is to reuse floral in ways that make a lasting impression. You can try mixing two prints or check online to find maxi dresses in a singular print – the choice is yours. Also, as mentioned, you can try repeating your old outfits with a twist.
Shirtdresses are back: A shirtdress is one of the must have essentials in any closet, and nothing beats a simple design in white. Back in 2014, a lot of shirtdresses were seen on the runway, mostly in Wall Street-kind stripes and singular formal colours. However, for spring 2017, you have more comfortable designs, mostly in white washed shades. DKNY, Rag & Bone, and Banana Republic are some of the brands to check for this trend. We loved the way these dresses were styled – No fuss, minimal makeup and neat hair. If you need something for work, the idea surely is worth trying.
Play it easy: Many designers also worked with the minimalistic style. This isn’t about downplaying the ideas. Instead, it is more like having a mix of different things, without paying singular attention to a single element. These are practical looks that you can sport to work or even to your regular parties. From mixing prints to trying singular colours like peach, grey and blue, there are quite a few ideas. Instead of talking of a single trend, designers chose to create looks that were distinctly different from one another.
