Following the departure of Paris Fashion Week, you may all have made yourselves familiar with the key trends this season, whether you actually caught up with the Fashion Week hype, or have made a visit to the stores recently.
It’s crazy, if you look up key trend lists or Fashion Week takeaways, you’ll pretty much find all the lists are different, the key trends are completely varied – just depends what you took from Fashion Week huh! So I wanted to share with you my three favourite picks from the multiple trends coming up for S/S17:
Ruffles have surely made it big the season. Like I said, if you’ve had a recently trip to the stores (especially the likes of Zara…), you’ll have noticed all the jumpers, tops and dresses full of voluminous, flowing ruffles! I never used to be into this style, but I have to admit, I’m slowly getting into it. What I love about the ruffle is it brings a hint of elegance and playfulness to an outfit, and i’ve always been a fan of that.
Inspiration // Valentino, Delpozo + Jonathan Saunders
50 Shades of Yellow
This is a colour i’ve never been inclined to wear as much – equally along with greens and purples, but let’s admit, there is something about this lemony-shade that works so fittingly for Spring/Summer – they call it the ‘optimistic colour of the season’. I’m already thinking to get a mustard Sandqvist Stig bag to begin detailing my outfits with a pop of colour. Yellow details will compliment grey and blacks in a cool manner – i’m up for that!
Inspiration // Versus Versace + Isa Arfen
I’ll always somehow associate gingham patterns with my red and white school outfit, which sometimes puts me off, although when styled in a certain way, I think it can brush off that association and make an adult outfit look fun. I’m really, really really in love with how Negin Mirsalehi, one of my most favourite Bloggers, styled a vichy shirt with this jumper – this outfit is serious goals! I need to try this! It’s a shame this shirt from Zara isn’t longer, but I may still get it. They currently have an entire #vichy collection – check it out!
