Last year’s fashion weeks included off-the-shoulder and orange/purple designs in New York, oversized proportions and mesh at London, box-pleats and muted florals at Milan, and leather- and Eastern-style designs in Paris. Here’s what this year is looking like based on the Spring 2017 Couture shows happening right now:
Tulle, Tiers, and Ruffles
Taking advantage of the shapes and size of tiered tulles and ruffles is a great way to play with volume and silhouettes! This top by Viktor&Rolf uses tulle to play up the shape and formality of the blazer!
Short Fringe and Color-Blocking
A very 80s-inspired design that uses color blocking, striking colors, and fringe to work with contrast! A loose sweater on top helps to contrasts the view of the legs, too, making for a lively ensemble.
Wrap and Big Tie Shirts and Dresses
A big beautiful side wrap on this dress emphasizes an asymmetrical look that’s both head-turning and flattering!
Patterns on Top, Solids on Bottom
This is a style that’s simple to execute and has been seen across multiple shows–complex prints on top and solids on the bottom! This style can work with skirts and pants, too!
Beaded and Embroidered
Beads, beads, beads! Lots of embroidered looks on the runway this season with precise stitching and beaded designs. These fabrics make gorgeous overlays!
Hi-Low and Gathered Skirts
Stylists showed off designs that gathered pleats and had flowing skirts! Both casual and formal settings suit this style well.
Long skirts, Loose fit, and All-over Cover
And finally, a style that highlighted cover-up above all! Long, loose, and relaxed-cut dresses were commonly presented. Do you think you pull off this elegant style?
Spring 2017 Menswear
We also want to give some love to menswear! Here are some highlighted styles from the line-ups this past season:
Cuffed and with an exposed ankle, these trousers make for a great modern style!
A blast from the not-so-distant past? Comfortable and sporty, this loose-cut jacket design is reminiscent of the 1990’s!
Fitted Blazers with Pegged Trousers
This design highlights silhouette contrast with a fitted cut on top outweighed by the fuller bottom! With this look, you’ll be stylish without having to sacrifice comfort!
Thick and Knitted Looks
Thick knits are always welcome! They’re a pinnacle of comfort and luxury, and they look warm and chic, too. If you haven’t tried wearing something like this before, give it a shot!
Trench coats were scattered across the runway shows for Menswear! Light and heavy styles were included, making this a versatile jacket style for all seasons!
This is what we’ve seen for the Couture and Menswear Spring 2017 shows so far. If these styles are anything to go by, the upcoming 2017 Fashion Weeks are surely something to look forward to! Some are returning, like the tiered designs and decade-inspired styles, and others–like the cover-all and knitted looks, are making their efforts to shine! Which of these styles do you think will do well and stick around in the upcoming Fashion Week? Is there a style you’d like to see be surprised with during the shows?
