HOW TO WEAR SPRING/SUMMER 2017 TRENDS

Florals, pinstripes & more

Trends this year for SS 17’ are fun & fabulous! But sometimes it can be challenging to take runway and make it work for your real life! Learn some great styling tips on how to take this seasons trends and wear them everyday!

  HOW WILL YOU DARE TO WEAR THESE?

PINSTRIPED

That classic pinstriped suit has really evolved into a great piece to pair with anything in your closet. If a dress, you could pair it with converse. Or a collared shirt, pair it with black skinny jeans & a sandal with a little fringe.

I just love this trend! Great to wear with platform shoes, a major shoe trend this season. Pair it with a crop top to go out with the girls. Or with a fun crew-neck shirt or pinstriped shirt for those office days.

 HOW WILL YOU DARE TO WEAR THESE?

A white collared shirt is a wardrobe must-have for every girl.

This wardrobe must-have can literally do anything and everything. Wear it under that LBD, with vintage denims & pumps, with a leather skirt, tuck it in, leave it out, tuck it half in & out. This wardrobe staple is perfect for whatever you need it to be. Wear it with vintage shorts & your favorite Converse or sandals. How will you style it for your looks?

If you are into that more casual, athletic look, you are in major luck. This Spring/Summer 17’ hot trends is that sporty, trendy look. Sports bra/ sheer top and oversized coat are all RTW trends you’ll see in non- sporty themed clothing. The fashion designers have done an excellent job of transforming these already hot trends into the sporty/athletic apparel. But  how will you wear it? Pair a shirt athletic top with a tank underneath & athletic bottoms. Finish this look with your favorite athletic shoes. This is perfect for those days full of errands.

HOW WILL YOU DARE TO WEAR THESE?

Sequins, metallics & floral all have something in common. They are all great statement pieces. But don’t forget you can mix & match different metallics & floral together!

Sequins have a misconception for being a little too crazy to wear in real life.  Take a sequin jacket, leather LBD & designer pumps for your look to go out on date night. Or wear a fun sequin shoe with your favorite denims & t-shirt for a casual look. However, if you do not see yourself in sequins, maybe a happy compromise will be metallics.

METALLICS

Metallics are fun & fearless. Don’t be intimidated by their boldness. Go for it and wear a full dress. Or to ease yourself into this trend, take one-two metallic pieces and work it into your outfit. It is easy to choose one metallic piece and integrate it into your outfit! I love to wear a bomber metallic jacket, dark denims & metallic shoe.

The classic trend is floral. You will always see them during spring/ summer seasons. As years go on you’ll see the scale & design of the print change a bit. Grab a great floral jacket and pair it with vintage jeans, a fun graphic t-shirt & sandals. Or a fun floral dress & pair it with a denim jacket & Converse.

 Sexy and Easy

Styling overalls are most likely the easiest and can be one of the sexiest trending items in your wardrobe this summer! It’s so easy to get this look! Do the whole all denim thing, but don’t be afraid of mixing dark and light and vintage denims together! In fact, that is one of the most dynamic combos we are finding for styling our denim. Grab that light colored pair of jeans, pair it with a dark wash denim shirt and through on some great gold necklaces with it to complete the look. Or Take your white t-shirt and place it under your vintage overalls, throw on a dark denim jacket over.  Put on the red lips and nude eye for this look if you want a pop of color! Make sure to undo the overalls, so they are gliding around your hip line. To dress this up a bit, try a high pump in black and a simple black t-shirt, with a statement necklace or collar necklace! Very sexy and very easy to get these looks!

Chanel Fashion Show: Spring/Summer 2014(Paris)

I loved this fashion show! I believe Chanel is such an incredibly timeless part of our apparel society! And yet with this particular Spring/Summer 2014 collection, designer, Karl Lagerfield, truely creates the perfect marriage of both traditional and modern apparel design. This is not an easy thing to accomplish. It takes skill, vision and many hours to perfect this collection. However, that is just what the designer, Karl, did, he did create a collection that is truely perfect and innovative to Chanel.

Models present creations by German designer Karl Lagerfeld for French fashion house Chanel as part of his Spring/Summer 2014 women's ready-to-wear fashion show during Paris fashion week

uk.reuters.com

In this particular collection, Karl Lagerfield, mixed the traditional fabric and design of the classic material and paired it with sparks of great trend. In many of his pieces, you will find the plaid design, however the fabric has fantastic trending color ways, and is mixing with different fabric types to create the traditional modern approach for this season’s Chanel collection. How divine!

The accessories are fabulous! Large scale pearls, simplicity placed on a strand to form a classic, and yet trendy approach to jewelry design. The bags were all sorts of classic Chanel bag to back back from Chanel.

The stage was arranged as if you were at an actual art gallery. Large scaled/life sized status and art work danced across the stage as the models glided down the aisle.

Fashion For Men

Versace’s Spring 2014 Fashion Show

Professional, youthful, edgy and strong are the Versace men. Not afraid to be bold and daring in their fashion apparel. Ready to face the world, looking professional, fresh and sheek.

Suits, leather , trench coats were some of the  styles that were hot at Versace’s Spring 2014 Fashion Show. Clean-cut, slim-fit suits were perfectly paired with white collared shirts and a neutral mid-width tie.  You can easily pair the suit jacket, shirt and tie with a pair of dark denim jeans and dress shoes and you have the perfect casual Friday look for the office. Leather jackets were paired with leather skinny pants to achieve an edgy, sheek look. Easy to place this jacket with vintage jeans and a collared shirt for a night out. Full-length trench coats were featured in the traditional khaki color way. This look is perfect for any casual or business casual environment.

Bold streaks of both colors and neutrals were painted on the models, and some of the clothing as well. This artistic approach, gave a playful, yet sophisticated feel to the overall theme of the show. Unexpected, but gave a remembering twist to the designer’s Spring 2014 line. It’s important to leave your mark on everything you do as a designer and for Versace, he certainly did for this show. How will Versace inspire you  this Spring 2014 season to leave your mark?
