These Are The Biggest Trends For Spring 2017

Make room in your wardrobe!

By: Laurel Pantin

Last week we got the tiniest taste of spring, and, oh, it was tantalizing. Between daydreaming about summer Friday’s, afternoons spent having tipsy cannonball competitions with friends and the feeling of sunshine on our faces, we got the fever...retail fever, that is!

Suddenly we were all overcome with the urge to shop and stock up on all the fun new pieces we’re dying to either road-test or revive once the weather warms up. Nevertheless, no matter how seasoned a shopper one might be, the new seasonal offerings can be overwhelming. So, in the interest of saving everyone (us) time (and money) here are the seven key trends, according to a study done by Pinterest, to buy into this spring.

Backless Shoes

It doesn’t matter if it’s a mule, loafer, or the Vetements x Manolo kitten heels (which we’re partial to), get yourself a pedicure where they do that heel scrapey thing, then get yourself some backless shoes.

 

Ruffles

Ruffles have been *a thing* for a while now, and we still love them. The more dramatic, the better!

 

Paperbag Waist

Ugh, is there anything cooler than a pair of paperbag waist trousers? Answer: no.

 

Sheer...Everything

There were *a lot* of nipples on the spring 2017 runways! For the more shy among us, wear your sheer top or dress with vintage-inspired underthings.

 

Khaki

Khaki’s (and cargo pants!) are back, and we never thought we’d say this, but we’re excited about it!

 

Trenches

We totally called this one. This season’s trenches aren’t just olive or khaki—look for one in a fun color or finish like patent leather—another big trend!

 

Corset Belts

Corset belts make a huge difference in your outfit, with minimal effort. Wear them over anything—from a simple t-shirt to a patterned dress—to completely transform your look.

 

Florals

Florals for spring...groundbreaking. But this season’s florals are bigger and weirder than ever before, and we’re totally into it.
