TRENDING NOW: Runway Report: Top Trends for Spring

New York City, Paris, London, Milan…the designers in these incredible fashion meccas left nothing on the table this Spring 2017 Runway show season! We saw some of our favorite old friends from the last couple seasons–bared shoulders, ruffles, pleats, stripes, and the sailor trend show up again on the catwalk. But where there were many familiar faces, it was really the chic, smart newness that caught our eyes! To view larger, click on image.

Here Comes the Sun

Lacoste, Narciso Rodriguez, Mulberry, Simone Rocha, Versus Versace

Designers loved this bright hue! And there’s a shade for everyone-lemon, marigold, canary, and mustard.


Deconstructed Lines + Fold-over Waists

Monse, DVF, DVF, Bottega Venetta

The new off-the-shoulder is all about the asymmetrical cut with deconstructed elements. We’re loving the fresh look of the single peek-a-boo shoulder. At Diane Von Furstenburg we saw an innovative fold-over-waist cut on the bias. Insert ogling here!!

Statement Sleeves

Vera Wang, Prabal Gurung, Jill Sander, and Vera Wang, Jill Sander

We caught a glimpse of the exaggerated sleeve and shoulder this Fall with a leg-o-mutton style, but by the Spring this late 1800s silhouette will be in full force. This avante-garde trend is for you bold risk-takers out there–embrace your inner new-age Victorian!


Stripes: The Bolder the Better

Opening Ceremony, Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler, Raquel Allegra

This season designers drew inspiration by the sea, with stripes in size and color reminiscent of beach towels and umbrellas. Take us to the shore!


Ulla Johnson, Ulla Johnson, Ryan Roche, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang

Sheer fabrics, lace jumpsuits with cut-out details, bubble gum pink ensembles, pleats, ruffles, bow blouses. Need we say more? Designers aren’t stepping away from prim and proper just yet…and we’re really okay with that!


Cushnie Et Ochs, Dion Lee, Rosalie Assouline, Ryan Roche

Trench coats, exaggerated pant legs, sleek dresses– you name it, it’s tan. We are still loving the monochromatic neutral trend we can’t get enough of already for Fall. Spring shows a lighter version and designers incorporate an abundance of khaki fabrication to every day dressing.

Vacation Florals

Tory Burch, Christian Siriano, Tibi, Oscar De La Renta

Still loving a good floral moment, designers spice it up with a bit of a tropical feel using brighter colors, beachy floral patterns, and airy fabrications.

Sock Bootie

All: Fendi

This shoe lit up the Fendi Runway in Milan and caused a Team WT simultaneous jaw drop! We. Are. In. LOVE.
