SS17 TRENDS REPORT

It’s always interesting to see where fashion insiders net out in terms of their “take” on the seasonal trends.  Because it comes down to one’s interpretation of the runway, often times, the reporting is all over the fashion map.  Not this year, my friends!  There were two huuuuuuge trends that everyone (and their brother!) agreed on… keep reading to hear allll about what you’ll be wearing this Spring.

Show Your Stripes

Huge trend #1: Stripes! We’re talking stripes in every colour, every size and on everything! Not that we’re complaining… Who doesn’t want to channel Capri by the sea? Bold and bright (not to mention, timeless)… stripes get our vote for the “must have” pattern of the season. Psssst! Think you can’t wear stripes? Think again! Maybe you’re not loving the idea of horizontal stripes (believe it or not, some people actually do as stripes of this ilk can help counterbalance one’s top and bottom half) but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear diagonal stripes or, incorporate striped accessories into your wardrobe. Bottom line (pardon the pun!): everyone and anyone can walk this line! (Told you they were everywhere!).

BELLISSIMA

In the Pink

Huge trend #2: Pink! We’re talking pink in every shade… rose, fucshia, strawberry, bubblegum and even “Millennial Pink” as the NY Times calls it. Whichever shade you opt for, know that you’ll be “pretty in pink” in this “it” colour of the season. Want to punctuate a muted outfit, pink has that power too!

Buzz Words

Talk to me, baby! This season, we’re letting our clothing make a statement (literally). Call it, “activist chic” if you wish but regardless, the message is loud and clear. These aren’t just buzz words we’re donning, they’re empowering, political statements. Call it an upgrade to, “wearing your heart on your sleeve”.

Steal The Show

Did someone say, bold baubles? Statement-making earrings? Oversized jewels? If that’s the case, bring on the bling!

What did we tell you? Remember seasons ago when we said that athleisure had already catapulted its way to “classic” status. Well, let’s just say . . . we don’t want to dwell on the fact that we told you so. If you’re still sitting on the bench with this one, what are you waiting for? Utilitarian, comfy, stylish . . . what more can you ask for! In our humble opinion, this “sporty” look is absolutely, 100 per cent, gold medal-worthy.
