Ruffle up your wardrobe this season with my SS17 payday picks!
Hurray! The day that I have been most looking forward to, post-Christmas Day – Pay Day – has finally arrived! Not just so I can get myself back onto a financial even keel but, so I can indulge out rummaging through the sale isles and into some of this Spring Summer’s key trends that I have carefully been following fresh off the catwalk!: Ruffles, Clenched in Waist’s (that are great at accentuating that hourglass figure), Bold Statement Sleeves, Stripes, Power Shoulders, and Sheer Fabric Designs – undeniably Spring Summer is that exciting yet safe seasonal fashion shift that has something for each individual fashion style. Here are three key looks that are making it onto my pay day splurge treat:
Ruffles and frills, just like their partner in crime, the statement sleeve, are hanging around post Autumn Winter to really make their mark. Traditionally found in more feminine floral designs, this year, not only do we see the romantic aspect of this trend but we see it shift into our work wear with statement shirts making a comeback, giving that boyfriend shirt a run for its money and taking the prize for this year’s denim and shirt combo.
The use of design in sleeves has gone full circle this season; first with the cold shoulder and then with the oversize statement sleeve holding the prime spot – you’d wonder where else the sleeve can go. This season, we see the introduction of sheer fabrics and embroidery detailing our sleeves.
Sleeves: Button down midi skirt – coming soon, Pleated trim blouse – coming soon, Lizard drawstring tote
When I think of Spring Summer and Stripes, I think of nautical! And with nautical, I think of blue and white. This season, there was a shift which was variations of stripes, thickness, and colour! Items that will take you through to high Summer.
Stripes: Drop Waisted Striped Dress – coming soon
