Fringe: Anna Sui // Marchesa // Coach 1941
Fringe is officially not just a term that refers to details on accessories or bangs. It was on everyone’s runways and everything– dresses, skirts and tops!
The Cold Shoulder: Prabal Gurung // Rosie Assoulin // Vera Wang
If you didn’t get enough exposed shoulders this spring /summer then you’re in luck! It’s back again for next spring/summer, and it’s on most designer’s runways. Expect this trend to hit overseas as well.
Deconstructed Shirting: Victoria Beckham // Monse // Concept Korea
This season designers took the scissors to shirting, and reconstructed them in unconventional ways. Giving us unique alternatives to the classic button down.
The Bra Top: Altazurra // Victoria Beckham // Tory Burch
Ladies start working on those abs. For spring this lingerie piece was paired with evening skirts, cropped jeans, slinky suits, and more. That is for those brave enough to bare.
Ruffles: Marchesa // Altazurra // Rodarte
This season you’ll find it difficult to find many collections without a ruffle or two among them. From a sleek few added to the flounce of a skirt, to tiers of them top to bottom, to ruffle details at the shoulder and hips, this is a BIG trend.
The Foldover Waist: Diane Von Fursrenberg // Rosie Assoulin // Monse
Waistlines have gotten a makeover for the upcoming spring season, and I’m loving it! No belts needed with the new and refreshing fold over waists.
Yellow Mellow: 3.1 Phillip Lim // Tibi // Versus Versace
The color from New York was yellow. From bright lemon yellow to mustard’s to chartreuse to your more sedated “mellow yellows”; they were in full force on the runways. The various neon yellows also made an appearance as piping on dressing and pants.
Split Sleeves: Hellessy // Prabal Gurung // Michael Kors Collection
Due to the Vetements craze sleeves have been getting longer and longer. For Spring 2017 designers found a way, by piercing them down the middle, to add an elegant, bell-shaped silhouette to those longer lengths.
Sheer: Marc Jacobs // Narciso Rodriguez // Jason Wu
With the ease that social media stars expose their naked, or nearly so, bodies these days it’s no wonder sheer clothing sauntered down so many runways. It’s also a wonderful feminine antidote to gender-neutral dressing.
The White Shirt Dress: DKNY // Rag & Bone // 3.1 Phillip Lim
It’s chic, minimal and easy to wear. Just throw on a pair of ankle boots, or wear over a pair of pants, and your good to go.
