From runways to racks: Spring 2017 fashion trends

What do major cosmopolitan cities like Paris, Milan and New York all have in common? Fashion week. Models line the runways, becoming elaborate silhouettes displaying the hottest trends of the season from top designers such as Gucci, Prada and Versace. This spring, new and old trends have been recreated and are ready for you to incorporate into your wardrobe. Here are the top five trends from high fashion runways.

Stripes are a classic pattern that will never go out of style. They are easy to wear and can add a sophisticated element into your wardrobe mixing up basic outfits. Try an off the shoulder dress or replace that plain white button up with a bold stripe print. Experiment by pairing striped bottoms with a striped top. Make sure to keep the colors neutral when doing this to avoid overwhelming your outfit.

Florals are a no-brainer when it comes to a spring wardrobe. The budding trees and bushes outside inspire the looks that strut down the runways. Florals have a tendency to resemble your grandma’s wallpaper, so try to gravitate towards fresh, bold patterns and colors. This will help keep your outfit looking contemporary rather than elderly. Pair your floral pieces with basics to look seasoned and put together.

Beige seems to be the color of the season! It has been on countless runways like Ralph Lauren and Valentino. Luckily, this is an easy trend to pull off and probably is featured in your wardrobe already! Upgrade your khaki pants with a modern blouse or add a touch of beige when accessorizing with different pieces such as jackets, shoes or fedoras. Pairing this color with white and cream to help look fresh and polished for whatever occasion.

Embroidered dresses, tops, and blazers have been a key feature in spring runways. While you may not be wearing an embroidered floral gown this spring, you can add a touch of this trend into your basics like boyfriend jeans or T-shirts. Most of the time embroidery is designed into a floral pattern which combines two of our trends into one! It takes your look from plain to playful and is a real head- turner.

Sliders have been seen strutting across the runways and will undoubtedly be strutting their way into your shoe collection. Not only are these shoes comfortable, but they are easy to slip on and off which makes them perfect for running out the door to class! They range from athletic styles to preppy and are extremely versatile. Practical and chic – what more could you want?

Start your spring cleaning early and clean out that closet to make room for these trends! Upgrading your wardrobe with a few key pieces that embody some (or all) of these trends will make your spring outfits unforgettable.
