TOP 5 WOMEN'S 2017 SPRING/SUMMER TRENDS

As a huge lover of fashion, I'm constantly on the lookout for new and exciting trends. Spring/Summer 2017 women's fashion brings us bolder patterns and brighter colours. These trends are the perfect way to showcase my colourful personality.   

I love to add small elements of seasonal trends into my wardrobe.  You don't need to break the bank and buy every trend for the season.  This is true for a number of reasons-- first, not every trend will be flattering and most trends do not last for more than a single season. I recommend adding one or two new pieces to you wardrobe every other season. If you're a fashionista on a budget, thrift and consignment stores are great places to start when you're looking to shop certain trends affordably.  Be mindful, thrifting is hit or miss, so you many not always find what you're looking for.  Another tip, take a look into your existing wardrobe.  Generally speaking, you will find that certain trends are recycled every couple of seasons, so you may have items in your closet that are back in style.

The trends that are showing up for this season are among some of my favourites.  Here are my Top 5 Women's Trend Picks:

 

STRIPED SHIRT REVAMP

We're seeing a lot of horizontal and vertical stripes for this season.  Patterns are always a great way to add dimension to your wardrobe.   I love this stripped shirt dress from ASOS.  In professional settings, this outfit can be transformed by pulling over a white blazer and adding a pair of black pumps.  If you're opting for a more casual look, throw on some flats or a pair of white sneakers and take a walk in the park this Spring!

Khaki Classics 

Not only is a robe inspired trench hot for this season, bone and khaki are the essential colours for your wardrobe.  I'm obsessed with this trench from Aritzia.  It's perfect for Spring days that are not too warm, but cool enough for a stylish pullover.

NEONS

I always said my personality was 'colourful'! I'm in love with the bright neons, citrons and fuchsias that we are seeing for spring and summer.  These colours are bold, daring and sure to let an audience know that you have arrived!  If colour isn't your thing, try to be adventurous and step outside of your comfort zone with this light bright yellow dress from Nasty Gal.

Flash-Dance Shoulder 

Remember when J.Lo revived this look in the early 2000s, well it's back! I'm a huge fan of this structured off-the-shoulder Jearim button down from Club Monaco.  It's the perfect balance between business casual and fashion forward.  This shirt has already been added as a new addition to my wardrobe.

White Shirt Dress 

My all time favourite piece of lounge wear is a white shirt dress.  This outfit is perfect for bunch with your girlfriends or a loose fit for a concert!  I tend to style my shirt dress with some funky sneakers and minimal accessories.  I recommend adding bold lip colour to make this simple and chic look pop!
