Fashion month may have come and gone, but the street style inspiration from the past several weeks is still in abundance. From the streets of New York, Milan and Paris, we hunted down the best looks and the biggest trends of the Spring/Summer 2017 show season to decipher what you’ll be wearing next. So, what’s on offer? Let’s see!
Red All Over
Street style stars were red all over this fashion month as they attended the S/S ’17 shows. From bright fire engine hues to rich crimson tones, red was undoubtedly the hot colour of the season. Worn head to toe, red created bold and unmissable looks for many female show goers. Some of the ladies even decided to add red shoes to the equation! Whether the colour was worn as a dress or in coordinating separates, its rich tone was enough to be the statement for any outfit. Shoes, jewellery, sunglasses, hair and makeup, were all kept subdued and politely fell to the background to make way for this saturation of colour. Styles and silhouettes were long, loose, and, above all, elegant to keep these ladies in red looking chic and stylish.
The pyjama trend spotted on the streets during the men’s S/S ’17 show season is back and bigger than ever for women’s fashion month. Silky, smooth and oh so chic, this trend has seen the most stylish interpretations of PJs we’ve ever known. While you won’t find any cartoon covered, flannelette pyjamas here, you will find satin, wide leg, pants and shirts, silk robes and sexy slip dresses aplenty. Delicate botanical prints up the ante on this trend while hints of lace and traditional pyjama-style piping finish the look off with the perfect details. Wear pieces together for the ultimate in daytime nightwear or pair pieces with casual basics to tone down the trend. Then just add some fur slides, and you’ll have the luxury lounge look down pat.
One the best ways to show that you know what styling is all about is to master the art of layering. While it’s not always the easiest of skills to learn, once you’re proficient in layering it will transform the way that you dress. Simple pieces take on a whole new life, and your style evolves from good to gold. While there’s always going to be a place in fashion for minimal dressing, this season’s best dressed awards are going to those who’ve mastered layering. Moving beyond the simple white t shirt and slip dress combo, this season took things up a notch with unexpected partners and pairs. Sweat pants were worn with trousers, high fashion sleeves emerged from rolled up jumpers, and statement shirts and dresses were combined to make one ultimate statement. Unexpected yet brilliant, this was a winning look.
The Cold Shoulder
This season, street style stars were all about showing off their shoulders. Leaving the tops of their arms out in the elements, fashionistas rocked cold shoulder tops all through the streets of the major fashion cities. Whether they were wearing simple dresses, statement tops, standout sequins or even knitwear, these style stars knew that it was all about the shoulders. Sexy in an unexpected way, this feminine look is the perfect new addition to your wardrobe. Just remember the SPF and watch out for awkward tan lines in summer!
Feminine ruffles went into overdrive on the streets of New York, Milan and Paris this fashion month. One ruffle certainly wasn’t enough as style stars showed off layer upon layer upon layer of the frilly fabric design. Switched on and dialled up to ten, this trend was spotted on tops, dresses, pants and even shoes. Whether they were placed on the bust, around the collar, over the shoulders, down the front, or on sleeves, ruffles were a standout feature for many designs.
Vibrant reds are about to have your wardrobe bursting with colour and style. While you’re looking chic, you’ll also be feeling relaxed as pyjama dressing becomes your regular. If that’s not enough, ruffles and unexpected layers will provide the finishing touches to your look. Don’t believe us? See for yourself!
