Spring 2017 Trends

Although Fashion Month may have just ended for Fall 2017/Winter 2018, I'm just getting excited about this season's trends! Here are my favourite trends for this Spring and how to wear them.

Stripes:

This pattern is the most wearable of the season and it is everywhere, from bold coloured stripes to classic Breton stripes. This is a trend that can be styled whichever way you like. As Spring approaches, wear a striped top with jeans for a pulled together and effortless look. When the Summer heat hits, opt for a striped dress in bright colours to grab everyone's attention.

Statement Sleeves:

This Spring is all about the statement sleeve. From bell-shaped, extra-long, or balloon, to off the shoulder or one shoulder tops, sleeves that have a unique flair are all the rage. With this look, which is quite bold, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit minimal. Pair a statement sleeve top with a simple bottom, like an ankle grazing pair of jeans.

Forget about the little black dress for now, this Spring it's all about the little white dress, namely the white shirt dress. There are so many variations to choose from this season, from interesting waistlines to unexpected hemlines. Pair them with flats for work and switch into chunky heels for a dinner date.

The (New) Trench Coats:

The classic trench coat never goes out of style. However, it has been reinvented this season in slouchy fabrics, with big buckles and emphasized silhouettes, taking the trench to the next level. A perfect coat to pick up for spring, pair it with denim while the temperatures are still on the cool side, and with a flirty summer dress once the heat rises.

Florals for spring isn't anything new. However, the Spring/Summer catwalks really brought about some eye-popping florals. Invest in a floral print this spring that speaks to a room, a far cry from the wallflower. The optimism of Spring was felt on the runways through bright and bold prints. Whether you opt for a dress, blouse or skirt in a floral print, you will definitely be on trend.

Denim is having a serious moment. From interesting finishes and unconventional cuts, denim is in a very fun and unique place right now. There is a lot of variety to choose from and even more experimentation and creativity in the industry, making it hard to pick just one pair! It's time to let the legging like skinny jeans go and pick up a pair of vintage-inspired denim, with distressed hems or embroidery embellishing the legs. Denim isn't only for jeans, denim overalls, skirts, shirts, jackets, it is everywhere and we can't get enough!
