NYFW Top Ten Spring 2017 Trends

Anna SuiMarchesaCoach 1941

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!

Prabal GurungRosie AssoulinVera Wang

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.

Victoria BeckhamMonseConcept Korea

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.

AltazurraVictoria BeckhamTory Burch

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.

Diane Von FursrenbergRosie AssoulinMonse

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.

Tibi3.1Phillip LimCreatures of Comfort

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.

Hellessy Prabal GurungMichael Kors Collection

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.

Marc JacobsNarciso RodriguezJason Wu

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.

DKNYRag & Bone3.1 Phillip Lim

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.
