Oh, hello my darlings.
This past fashion month spanning across all four cities of New York, London, Milan and now Paris have proven to be a big blob of blur, already.

As fashion week quickly approaches, let’s talk trends for Spring/Summer 2017. Various trends were the same and some were different. This fashion season’s woman is a bold and gutsy attention grabber, an unapologetic feminist while staying true to her femininity. Take a scroll down to see the top 5 trends of Spring/Summer 2017 and what you should be wearing come Spring to stay fashion-forward.
Every show, from New York to Paris, amplified the top hemisphere of our body once again and exalted every part of the sleeve region in a few reworked shirts to boot. Some old and new iterations contained bold shoulder pads, flirty flared cuffs, structured or voluminous sleeves followed by narrow and slim cuffs which reveal just enough of skin of the wrists, according to Marc Jacobs.
Stripes continue to rule the collections, eloquently presented, from maximized to minimized, executed in vertical and horizontal lines. It permeates sophistication in rich luxe fabrics and textures. Miu Miu’s use of stripes clarifies a chic narrative illustrating an elongated silhouette and pragmatically wearable even with two distinctive stripes. A definite crowd pleaser no matter what century you live in. Stripes are always a style mainstay.
Spring and Summer 2017 girl is also a temptress with interestingly transparent details and patterns on see through frocks. The allure of lace, chiffon or sheer materials to any girl, designers never fail to keep fresh and seductive. Sexy!
The one critical decision or turning point of an outfit is to accentuate the waist with a belt in my opinion. It also gives shape. The waist is one of the focal points this season, from over-sized (Balenciaga) to bustier belts and some were knotted up. Belts are, without a doubt, a sure thing in today’s woman.
Swim wear is hot this season and better than ever. Some swim wear is sporty and some are feminine, smartly matched and layered with unexpected pieces, regardless which show you were at.
