Spring Trends 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these seasonal trend roundups, so let’s get right into it with just a few:

 

Stripes – I personally feel that stripes are always in season. Depending on the colors and whether the stripes are vertical or horizontal, you can make it work. I recently made the mistake of purchasing a top with horizontal stripes which actually isn’t flattering, especially in photos. So you just have to be mindful of what suits you. Definitely not saying horizontal stripes could never work, because they can and I’ll probably wear that top over and over again.

Khaki – Khaki is a great neutral color especially for a duster or trench. They are of course great as a pant color, but the wrong shade can make you look like you’re not wearing any. I made that mistake not too long ago and returned those real quick. It’s a great color for outerwear nonetheless.

Yellow – You can’t do Spring without a little yellow. I wouldn’t overdo it with this color, but it will add a great pop to any look. See below for some examples.

Single Shoulder Cutout – You may think women who wear the hijab can’t pull this off, but you can with the right under shirt. Again, also depends on the colors, the type of fabric, etc.

White Shirt Dress – Super easy to wear especially for Spring and Summer. My dream dress would be a maxi version of this that’s masterfully tailored. Whether you wear the headscarf or not this will be great for the upcoming season if paired correctly.

Waist Corset Belt – One of the newest trends along with the choker necklace. Definitely worth a try, but of course it all depends what you choose to wear it with. It could go from cute to a big N-O super fast.

Trench Coats – Always a yes, I would recommend a lightweight one for Spring. The great thing about a trench is that it looks great with almost anything. Invest in a bunch because I don’t think they’re ever going out of style.

Supersized Bags – I feel like these bags are always trendy, not to mention they come in handy. Get your hands on neutrals or even a few statement bags that you can use as a starting point for the rest of your look.

Victorian Era – Lace, Pleats, Bell Sleeve and Ruffles – why not? Find that perfect Victorian top and pair it with anything from jeans to a pencil skirt, the options are truly endless.

Athleisure – I’m not talking a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit (can we leave those back in 2005 please). I’m talking along the lines of Adidas track suits, such an easy look to throw on and head out.
