I have been perusing all of the runway shows for 2017 to pick out my favorite trends for the season. These 3 must have trends for 2017 are so easy to wear and not flashy or over the top “trendy” so you can actually wear them for years to come!
I love translating runway into everyday and this is one interpretation of the Alexander McQueen show and how I would wear it by incorporating 3 trends of the show (Dark Florals, Ruffles and Military) into one outfit. I know it sounds a little crazy if you heard “wear three trends at once” but it is all in the way that you translate and put them together. Here, I kept the color palette neutral so that the outfit looks classic, chic and not too trendy!
3 Must Have Trends for 2017
- Dark Florals – I thought it was so interesting how dark all the palettes were for most of Spring 2017 and I like it! Dark florals are so easy to wear year round and are also pretty much a classic wardrobe staple. I mean, when was the last time you heard florals are not in?!
- Ruffles – So girly and fun. For my shape, too much ruffle will make me look like a cupcake. I kept it minimal with this blouse that has a slight ruffle detail on the front along with pretty pin-tucking. This style of blouse is also a forever keeper. Blouses are always on trend and classic piece to add to your wardrobe. I love that I got two trends in one with this blouse – bonus! Keeping the ruffles minimal, like with this shirt, will keep you on trend without looking too cray cray (for those that are more conservative 🙂 )
- Military – As you saw in this post, I am a little obsessed with military. Again, *staple*! Have you heard of the Pea Coat? That thing has never gone out of style this one wont either. I like that it gives this classic trench a twist and modern update. Military, sailor stripes, etc, will be around forever so don’t hesitate to take the plunge. I have had this coat from Ann Taylor for about 6 years and I wear it often
So there you have it! Trends and runway don’t have to be extreme, loud or scary. It is all in how you work them! Do you guys have your own way to translate runway fashion and trends? Would love to hear in the comments below!
