It’s time to celebrate Spring, and what better way to do that than to dress up for the season. The fashion season has just closed, ending in Paris, and we’ve got the latest trends from the Paris Fashion Week.
Here are the top Spring Fashion Trends:
1. Laced, slip in dress
“One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress,” Karl Lagerfeld once said.
One of the attention-grabbing pieces at Chanel’s Paris fashion show was an ensemble that used a lacy, black, slip in dress, worn with a wraparound, button-down skirt with black and white stripes and a knitted cape overcoat in khaki. There wasn’t anything not to love about the collection. The slip in dress was worn so many ways, in black and nude shades, that you better make this your most feminine Spring staple.
2 Kimono-style, padded blouse, and short dresses
Many sleeved pieces on the Saint Lauren show were characterized by this clothing description. Many of which in black. Elsewhere, the padded shoulders were also spotted on majority of the pieces at the Balenciaga runway. Everything from the closed neck blouses, blazers, and polo shirts were padded making the shoulders appear broader and squarer.
3. Waist cinchers
Whereas these accessories were once only available in leather from Alexander McQueen, this season, everybody’s taking a shot at these modern corsets. Mind you, they’re not that easy to wear on a casual day out. Fortunately, there are a couple of pieces we think will easily blend in your favorite wardrobe staples.
Check out how this new-age belt was incorporated in the beautiful designs at the Isabel Marant and Balmain runways.
4. Modern Bohemian
All of the pieces at the Roberto Cavalli Cruise 2017 show was worthy of a second look. The clothes were presented in breathtaking prints which most people will have difficulty mixing and matching together but, which fell into their proper places at the show. So feminine and absolutely 70s flower power -inspired, even the embroidered platform sandals were a sight to behold. There were full-length halter dresses, kimono dresses, and adorable flared pants in the collection.
Other labels carried the Boho look too, including Loewe and Acne Studios. Even the usually classical, conservative design of Valentino has seen a splash of Boheme this season.
5. The Sophisticated 50s
The petticoat skirts certainly didn’t make it to the Miu Miu revival of the era’s best fashion offerings but the aura of the decade certainly can be felt and seen on every piece that walked down the Miu Miu runway: belted, calf-length skirts in soft fabrics, floral and geometric pattern prints, bright striped pieces, striped suit, one-piece bathing suits, floral skull caps, and huge, neon-rimmed sunglasses.
This phenomenal collection made it clear that Spring 2017 is not just about showing the most skin but, showing the right skin in all the right places. Therefore, it’s time to get your skin in tune as well. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t be trying on random products. Read product testimonials, including Plexaderm reviews, for instance, to narrow down your choices. Make sure that you understand your skin’s peculiar needs as well before you start exploring for a product that will work wonders for your skin.
6. Uneven sleeves
More and more, designers are making us appreciate how sleeves can be so sensual, and our shoulders and arms so sexy. This season definitely tells the tale of the uneven sleeves. We loved the sophistication of the black, long gown at the Vetements show. One side was haltered, while the other side was worn long.
We have seen more interesting takes on the uneven sleeves from Rochas. On the Saint Lauren show, there were pieces where the sleeves were completely different from the rest of the piece, like a velvet long sleeve attached to a metallic tube dress. Go figure.
7. Whites and off-whites
Valentino had several pieces in this shade in flowy garments. Our favorite will have to be the closed neck, sleeveless, full-length dress with gray prints all over it. The piece was worn with a messenger bag. Chic, white pieces also made an entrance at the Celine show.
On the Chloe runway, casual black and white pieces were spotted. Our top pick though will have to be the very versatile white shirt. The piece was worn under soft, tailored blazers and paired with soft trousers.
