SS17 Shows has come to an end. But the trends are just starting! We’ve round up our top 5 trends to strut this coming Spring/Summer 2017. Ready your shopping lists and jot these ones down. Stock up your wardrobes and make sure you have them before the seasons start!

1.) Ruffles/Gathers

For a structured yet feminine look, ruffles are your best friend. Whether it’s the whole garment or just an added detail, in any color or size, it’s a total eye catcher!

2.) Deconstruction

Pioneered by distinguished designers like Martin Margiela and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons, deconstruction evolved with the touch of the modern generation. It continues to this day in many forms, and it has never been cooler than this!

3.) Woven Hats

Spring and summer isn’t just complete without our trusty friend, sunhat.  Whether you’re spending the day at the beach or just a casual stroll at the park, from narrow brims to wide brims to really really wide brims, it’s not just a necessity but it can also be a fashion statement.

4.) Metallics

For those sleepless summer nights in Ibiza (or really anywhere in the world), metallics will make you stand out from the crowd and literally make you shine even in bare moonlight. Choose a less stereotyped shade and go for copper or rose gold!

5.) Off-shoulder

Another example of subtle femininity, specially if done with a low loose bun. Every girl needs atleast one off-shoulder in their wardrobes! It has been a fashion statement for some time now and it looks like it’s staying in the limelight for a while more.
