Hurry up summer – we’re totally over our winter wardrobe, and we just want to embrace the biggest fashion trends of 2017.
The cold shoulder trend still remains huge with deconstructed shirts; 80s party wear and the slogan T-shirt will be your new go-to wardrobe essential. But will you be brave enough to try the full-on florals and the ruffles?
We’ve curated 10 catwalk trends that will most influence your wardrobe choices (and bank balance) this year. Which looks will make the biggest impact on your wardrobes this summer?
See the 10 trends everyone will be wearing below:
Think metallics, disco leggings and the one-shoulder dress – the ’80s is back, everyone! This is pure night-time attire – short minis and neon spandex. It’s definitely not for the shy types.
Fashion with function is all the rage for 2017. Designers have cottoned on to the fact that we have shit to do, so we’re workwear inspired pieces were big on the catwalks, with relaxed shapes and muted shades.
SLOGANS & LOGOS
So wrong yet so wrong, the slogan tee is here to stay! T-shirts with a political stance (as seen at Dior) are all the rage – it’s time to let your T-shirt do the talking.
THE DECONSTRUCTURED SHIRT
Hallelujah, the trusty shirt isn’t going anywhere. On the contrary, it’s getting even more interesting. The off-the-shoulder trend is still going strong, but now we’re getting ruffles, over-sized sleeves, peek-a-boo cut-outs and even cropped shirts hit the runway. It’s official: Shirts are not boring for 2017.
RUFFLES. ALL THE RUFFLES.
Basically if you’re not wearing ruffles on, you might as well stay indoors. And don’t be scared – it’s not all girly – we caught a glimpse of black leather ruffles at Alexander McQueen, and punky ruffles at Preen
CLASH YOUR COLOURS
This isn’t for the shy types – the spring/summer 2017 trends included lots of colour, but went one step further by clashing to the max. Think bright blue and grass green, pink and yellow, blue and red, purple and pink… the choice is endless.
Statement stripes were spotted everywhere during the shows – if you’re not into florals, perhaps we can interest you in a full-on striped ensemble, because that’s the thing, these stripes aren’t subtle – they’re full on.
Head-to-toe florals were huge during the shows. It turns out florals for spring are groundbreaking after all. Basically, if it’s covered in florals, you’re on to a winner.
