BIG NEWS! Spring has FINALLY hit Ottawa, I even saw the first bug of the year! In order to kick off spring properly, I would like to share with my readers a Guest Post from Suzy Walsh of House of Elegance Fashion; thanks Suzy!
Fashion is all about your personal take on trending ideas and styles. You can always create a new segment in your closet, as long as you have enough inspiration. In this post, we will guide you through the spring 2017 trends. Spring/Summer 2017 collections had some amazing surprises for everyone, and if you are unsure of what to shop for, we have enlisted the best trends right below for your help. Styling for spring has never been this easy!
Pinky promise: Pink for spring? Might not be a groundbreaking idea, but the palette was a mix of many unique shades. Right from simple baby pinks and pastels to berry tones and fuchsias, the colour was everywhere. Probably you cannot go wrong with pink summer dresses, or else you can even try a soft pink for your formal suit. There’s a lot to try, and you can find some fun ideas at Givenchy, Bottega Veneta, and Prabal Gurung to name a few.
Up for stripes: Stripes, ruffles and tassels have been spring staples for a while now. In 2016, we had some really strong stripes making a mark on the runway, but this year, it is all about minimalism and casualness. You will love the outfits we spotted in the collections of Chanel, Monse, Chloé and Fendi. You can try simple A-line dresses and skirts or casual shirts and shirt dresses – the choice is yours! Also, we insist that you check online stores, where you can find similar styles at much lesser prices. Don’t miss on trying new colour mixes.
Let’s show off: Sheer materials, see-through outfits, peek-a-boo designs and transparent styles made a big impression on the runways this season. The message is all about – “Show it off”. The idea is to try outfits that aren't exactly in your comfort zone. You can try simple cut-outs or a see-through shrug over your regular bikini- the options are too many! Make sure to check the collections of Dior, Prada, Bottega Veneta, and Anya Hindmarch for some ideas. If you don’t want to buy new things, never mind because you can still try layering with those crop tops!
Very casual indeed: We love the startling lazy prints and floral ideas spotted at Peter Pilotto, Rosie Assoulin, and Ports 1961. Spring 2017 will have a lot of these prints, and you have probably found a few in stores already. It is all about playing with prints that are not very conventional but have an essential spring vibe. Try dresses, casual maxi outfits or even a nice printed skirt – There’s enough for every pretty lady out there!
Hope you found this post worth your shopping list! Follow this super nice blog, and we will be back soon with another talk on fashion and style. Enjoy the spring!
