5 spring style trends that will dominate this season

Spring always seems to sneak up on us each year, with long winters and fickle weather, we can never really know when it’s time to break out the spring style. Every stylish woman has the power to create her own looks using the trends this spring, by putting her own spin on it. Fashionistas know that copying what everyone else is doing isn’t cool, but showing off your own personality and incorporating them into everyday looks is.

This year’s fashion week gave us an idea of what to expect this season in style, and brands like Valentino, J.W Anderson, and Balenciaga showed off trends that should be incorporated into your wardrobe this season.

Here are the top spring trends for 2017:

1.      Ruffles

Ruffles and extravagant sleeves were all the rage on the runway. We saw very Victorian era-style looks being displayed in collections by Erdem and Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma. We can expect to see lots of casual and formal dresses with this look and feel that will be perfect for day parties and events.

According to the fashion editors, khaki is the new black this year. We’ve seen celebrities rocking dressed up trench coats and other styles with khaki. This season you can expect lots of structured pieces, oversized garments and box shapes. Balenciaga and Stella McCartney were just a couple of the designers to show off these styles.

5.      Athleisure

Athleisure is clothing that looks like you can work out in it but can also be doubled as casual wear.  Beyoncé took the world by storm when she launched Ivy Park, her line of athleisure last year and we can expect to see a lot more of those types of collections being released this season. Alexander Wang, Dolce and Gabbana and Versace also have launched athleisure collections just in time for this trend to take off.
