Top 3 Fashion Trends That’ll Shake up Your Wardrobe this Summer
From feminine lace and vibrant prints to nailing the crop top look we reveal the Top 3 style trends you should know about for Spring/Summer 2017 next…
Fashion Weeks have been well underway in London, New York and South Africa and you can see the latest catwalk looks filtering down into local Mzansi street wear. We’re delighted to reveal some of the biggest trends set from the catwalk to add to your wardrobe this season as summer 2017 gets underway.
Trend #1 Lace
Lace is one of our hottest textures to wear this summer and not to mention it’s flirty and fun. Delicate lace patterns were seen all over the runway by some of the most popular fashion designers this year and it’s no surprise as this trend is a wardrobe staple. It can be worn in a variety of styles and you can even pair it with leather to give it an edgy feel.
For a stylish day-time look team it with a feminine floral or add it to a pair of jeans and heels and yo u’re set for the perfect night out on the town.
Trend #2 Bold Prints
The second hot trend alert this season is none other than bold prints. Whether you wear them bold or bright, the print trend is a fast favourite. You can wear them horizontal, vertical, curved or chevron as the possibilities are endless. If you’re in the mood for a more subtle approach you could layer a printed tee with an elegant blazer or dress it down with a pair of pumps and a denim skirt for a more casual look.
Dare to wear a few bold colours in the print and ensure you make a standout statement this season with one of the latest trends. Take a page out of South African fashion designer Kathrin Kidger’s book as she just showcased her latest collection at DFF 2016 and the runway was rocked by striking prints in vivid colours and designs.
From black, white and tailored, to clashes of hot vibrant colour to eclectic prints, there’s so many wears to wear this trend for Spring/Summer 2017.
Trend #3 Crop Tops
This season the crop top trend is back and it’s back with a vengeance. Designers from across the globe embraced this trend and incorporated it into their latest collections.
From sexy leather numbers to feminine florals to bold prints, the crop top is the new Tee and it’s all you need to wear this summer. Pair it with a high-waisted skirt for a more feminine approach or dare to go bare with a pair of your favourite jeans and a pair of sneakers for a more casual approach.
