2016 is now behind us, and left behind are memories of monochromatic looks, minimalism, and “athleisure.” For the upcoming season, prepare to embrace the rebirth of 1980s glam. Spring 2017 will introduce a modern version of the fashion revolution, bringing back puffed sleeves, bold prints and colors, ruffles, and statement earrings.
Spring catwalks are flourishing with interpretations of the ’80s, translating to a season of self-expression and unpredictability. What does this mean for the average working woman? More statement pieces. Ditch your boring black blazer and reach for one that’s oversized with a bold color or print. And if you’re feeling like taking a risk, go for the one with architectural shoulders or sleeves.
Spring 2017 fashion shows debuted a tremendous number of dramatic colors, favoring shades such as pink and yellow. Retire an excessive amount of black to the back of your closet and dare to be different with neon blazers, printed tops, striped trousers and embellished blouses.
Expect to see ruffles everywhere this season since frills were seen all over the runway. The style effortlessly showcases personality while remaining feminine. Voluminous sleeves and ruffles add a romantic element to every woman’s closet. This year is all about standing out, so if you can’t let go of your dark minimalist pieces, try vamping up your accessories selection.
Another way to shake things up is to add statement earrings. Designers such as Proenza, Delpozo, and more have made the message clear: the bigger and bolder the better. Fashion in 2017 is all about getting out of your comfort zone, expressing yourself and pushing boundaries.
Bring confidence to your wardrobe by increasing the number of standout colors, prints, accessories and embellishments to take the new year by storm. Go from minimalist and muted to bold and beautiful, creating the most exciting wardrobe you’ve ever had.
