Spring/Summer 2017 takes fashion back to the ‘80s, re-defining elegant and confident looks through exaggerated lines, metallic effects, sparkles, prints and bold colors.
All Shades of Pink
Whether you choose to wear fuchsia, baby pink, cherry pink or candy pink, you will still be on trend as all shades of this uplifting color were seen on the catwalk, from Celine and Valentino to Loewe and Cavalli.
Spring fashion wouldn’t be complete without florals. The trick is to pump it up to make the look either edgier like in Coach or Lanvin or flirtier with a twist on the seventies style as seen at Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana.
Whether they are ruffles, flutes, cropped, bunched or oversized, statement sleeves made a comeback on the runways, particularly at Chanel, Balmain and Loewe.
This season, exaggerated shoulders are part of suits, jackets and even dresses, creating new forms of elegance and movement.
Designers like Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Coach revealed the power of suggestion though sheer layers and textures that left little to the imagination.
This season designers showed us how to rock a good old razzle-dazzle. Sequins and sparkle were more present than usual on the runways, particularly at Kenzo, Balmain, Elie Saab and Louis Vuitton.
Vibrancies, geometric prints, crisscross stripes and slamming colors were also spotted on the runways this season whether merged in jumpsuits, dresses or even crop tops.
Introduced as “the optimistic color” of the season, the head-to-toe yellow look comes in various shades to match every skin tone and brighten up your summer days.
Khaki is versatile enough to act as a proper substitute for black. It is reinterpreted in different ways by Valentino, Carolina Herrera, Kenzo and Balmain who used it on coats, capes and stylish dresses.
