It’s industry practice for designers to unveil their 2017 Spring Summer Collection looks the year before. But for normal fashion fans like me and you, we don’t really get to try out the new trends until months later. So if you need a refresher on what made headlines during 2017 Spring Summer Collection reveals, I’ve got just what you’re looking for! Let’s recap some of the hottest 2017 Spring Summer Collection looks, and I’ll share what pieces you need to add to your wardrobe to master this season’s trends!
The Hottest Picks From 2017 Spring Summer Collection Looks
I’m what you call a “fashion geek”—I wait religiously for fashion week (street style and runway looks alike!), make shopping game plans, and regularly organize my closet. And while I’ve already seen all the 2017 Spring Summer Collection looks from last year’s fashion weeks, I know not everyone has the time or enthusiasm to do the same! Or you may have seen some of the looks and figured out what you like, but between fall fashion and holiday outfits, 2017 Spring Summer collection looks just weren’t top priority—until now. It’s time to start building your Spring and Summer wardrobe, and what better place to look than trend-setting designers themselves? They’re the top of the fashion food chain, as far as creativity and new trends are concerned. So keep reading to see the pieces from 2017 Spring Summer Collection looks you definitely need in your closet!
1. Cool Layers
Layering doesn’t stop after fall and winter, thankfully! 2017 Spring Summer collection looks featured lighter fabrics, shorter hemlines, and lighter colors. Stock up on light silk of rayon blouses, thin cotton pullovers, and light trench coats for this season.
2. Dressed-Up Shorts
Speaking of shorter hemlines, the warmer months means you can bust out your shorts again! But many 2017 Spring Summer collection looks featured more dressed-up versions of this casual staple. Pick heavier and more formal fabrics or play with prints and darker colors! Dress them up even more with a blazer during colder Spring days.
3. Upgraded Athleisure
Athleisure isn’t going anywhere this 2017, it’s just getting better! Sweats and a plain tee are so 2016. Many 2017 Spring Summer Collection looks mixed and matched athleisure pieces like hoodies, pullovers, and sneakers with dressier looks like pencil skirts, structured pants, and even dresses!
4. Fun Prints
Spring and summer are the seasons for vibrant and fun outfits, this year is no different. Play with prints and patterns in different colors—don’t be afraid to mix and match! The louder and more graphic your outfits are, the more you’ll stand out in a crowd.
5. Bright, Feminine Colors
On the other hand, bright and feminine colors are also making a big splash this year. The difference? You can dress them up and down. Pink, yellow, orange, and other bright colors aren’t just for casual pieces anymore. Pink elephant pants for a party outfit? Yes, please!
6. Luxe Fabrics
Velvet made a huge statement last 2016, and this year even more luxe fabrics are set to be huge trends. Transition your velvet, suede, and silk for the warmer months by going for more color and fun! This rust orange suede look is a great transitional outfit you can wear all year ’round.
DVF, the queen of feminine wrap dresses, has spoken: rompers are back in style! I love this versatile piece because I can wear it everywhere—work, play, parties, you name it. True to 2017 Spring Summer collection trends, just make sure your rompers are fun bright for the season.
8. Youthful Workwear
The fun doesn’t stop when you head to work! Even workwear and suits are more playful for the start of 2017. Chanel’s classic tweed suit was reimagined for the season—instead of a pencil cut, go for circle or skater skirts! Crop blazers and pastels are also big for workwear this year.
9. Pops of Color
In terms of accessories, we saw a mix of different styles and types this season. But one thing’s for sure: you can use accessories to give your outfits much-needed pops of color! Whether you’re into laid-back or structured bags, move towards eye-catching colors like red, hot pink, and orange. Even if you insist on wearing black this season, your bags will keep you on-trend!
10. Everything 80s
Say goodbye to the chill 70s and hello to the loud 80s! Metallics, shoulder pads, and anything that makes a statement will invade the wardrobes of stylish girls everywhere. So hit the thrift shops, borrow from your mom or aunts, and embrace 80s style.
