8 Spring Style Trends You Need In Your Wardrobe

We know you find fashion lady’s love your designers, wardrobe, and trends. We’re not exactly mind readers, but thanks to the designers’ Spring ’17 runways, we can paint a pretty clear picture of the coming months in fashion. These looks set the pace for a new season, and it’s going to look a little different from the style world as you know it. Prepare for bolder prints, more frills, and some serious wardrobe disruption. While minimalism has ruled, 2017 is poised to bring some big change to our closets. We did our homework and watched our fashion weeks very carefully to come up with the perfect eight spring trends that are not just perfect for spring, but for every season. If you can rock all eight trends for spring, you are going to be set with your wardrobe for the rest of the year, and let me tell you they are absolutely worth it to take a peak at and try out.

ISN’T IT ROMANTIC // 1

Ruffles, voluminous sleeves, and nods to the Victorian era made Spring’s most covetable dresses decidedly romantic, and a touch more dramatic than your average day dresses.

VACATION PRINTS // 2

Spring’s florals are bright, splashy, and on vacation. The saturated, tropical-feeling motifs find their way onto everything, giving you those getaway vibes, even when you’re trapped at home.

TRACK HAPPY // 3

Fashion’s obsession with athleisure is a staple for Spring, delivering a riff on your favorite sweatpants and track pants. Dress them up or wear them right to the gym; either way, you’ll be right on trend.

(1)Vetements Spring 2017, (2)Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2017, (3)Markus Lupfer Spring 2017, (4)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (5)Paul Smith Spring 2017, (6)Versace Spring 2017.

OVEREXPOSED // 4

Come Spring, overexposure will be the new norm, thanks to bra tops and bandeaus putting midriffs on full display. Opt for a little modesty with a sheer top draped over top or a jacket left wide open to show off everything.

(1)Dior Spring 2017, (2)Prada Spring 2017, (3)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (4)Fendi Spring 2017, (5)Gucci Spring 2017, (6)Anya Hindmarch Spring 2017.

EARN YOUR STRIPES // 5

The classic print rules for Spring, but it’s got a contemporary update in knits, sheer fabrics, and even asymmetrical cuts. And if you prefer a more traditional look, you might just want to snag new suit separates with the must-have pattern.

(1)Chanel Spring 2017, (2)Monse Spring 2017, (3)Chloé Spring 2017, (4)Erdem Spring 2017, (5)Fendi Spring 2017, (6)Lanvin Spring 2017.

WARDROBE RENEGADE // 6

Rules are meant to be broken, so why wear a button-down tucked in and buttoned up or a bra top underneath your blouse? Designers are begging you to push the envelope with clothes that are meant to be layered unexpectedly and outfits that come deconstructed.

(1)Monse Spring 2017, (2)Carven Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Marni Spring 2017, (5)Ports 1961 Spring 2017, (6)Giambattista Valli Spring 2017.

80’S GLAM // 7

Full sleeves, high shine, and body-conscious fit signal the return of ’80s glam on the runway, ready to pump up the volume in your closet.

(1)Gucci Spring 2017, (2)Tom Ford Spring 2017, (3)Balmain Spring 2017, (4)Elie Saab Spring 2017, (5)Isabel Marant Spring 2017, (6)Preen Spring 2017.

PUNCTUATED IN PINK // 8

Pretty and soft isn’t the way you’ll think of Spring’s pink palette. The color was a designer favorite, punctuating runways with its ironic sweetness or, sometimes, bold, saturated fuchsias.

(1)Givenchy Spring 2017, (2)Bottega Veneta Spring 2017, (3)Céline Spring 2017, (4)Prabal Gurung Spring 2017, (5)Chanel Spring 2017, (6)Delpozo Spring 2017.

Pretty, Paris, & Pink- FENTY x PUMA

You already know we are in love with Rihanna, running, and fashion, which is why we were so excited when we saw these three come together into one absolutely amazing show. Rihanna made her Paris Fashion Wekk debut with a show for her Spring 2017 Fenty & Puma collection. We all know Rihanna does everything big, which is why we weren’t surprised to see her collection set against the elaborate backdrop of the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild! The celeb sent out street wear with high-fashion twists, Rihanna’s second Puma offering was a take on Marie Antoinette as if she was the coolest chick on the streets of Paris. After watching the show, we thought there were some major details you guys might want to know about Rihanna’s stunning debute.

Rihanna turned the salons of the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild into a wonderland complete with chandeliers lying on the ground and a maze-like runway that wound in and out of the hôtel particulier’s many rooms.

Imaan Hammam opened the show in a transparent, Pepto-pink parka that was trimmed in ruffles. She carried a Puma-branded fan and wore a full neck of jewelry, a do-rag, and a baseball cap.

From there the show cycled through a variety of pink looks. The most dramatic being the bow-front number on Slick Woods, before turning to an army green palette that included jumpsuits and a memorable hoodie with a bra top affixed to its front. We are obsessed with this palette.

Corsets were a big story at Fenty x Puma, with models wearing them over dresses, as part of sweatshirts, or on their own with bra tops.

Though we were absoutely in heaven with the collection at the beginning, we could not help but wonder… wait where are the shoes? And then all of a sudden, there they were. There were creeper-soled boots, stiletto mules, and proper pumps with shoelace trim at the front for girly girls who want to nod to sports culture without getting their feet wet.

Many of the models in the show carried diamond rings in their mouths. How better to propose to a gal? But really a Rihanna twist on the show, providing a mysterious perception for the audience to make their own determinations on what they would do with a hot model & diamond ring in their mouth. After the models took their final walk, Rihanna came out in head-to-toe pink, making sure to stop in each of the salon’s many rooms and bless her guests with a photo op. If the big smile on her face is any indication, we’d say she’s pretty happy with the outcome of this collection.
