The Top 4 Style trends for Spring 2017

 

I love the sunshine! Just a few days ago it was the first day of spring & I am beyond excited for this new season! Let the sun shine on in….
Spring is always such an exciting season & especially after months of wearing boots and bundling up every day, it’s so exciting to put on pretty dresses & tops, light weight jackets and open toe sandals again. I’m so excited for all the new outfits to wear once the weather is perfect and warm again!

PINK-RUFFLES-HEARTS

This season there are so many amazing new trends that definitely match my personal style on repeat: feminine details, bright colors & a vintage vibe. I’m so excited about these new looks but I know that sometimes it can be hard to figure out what you might want or need to refresh your wardrobe come spring.
Not to worry! I’ve rounded up the hottest trends for you this season….

Here are my top 4 favorite trends for Spring/ Summer ’17:

Throwback Style Inspiration…..Sixties Style Icon-Jean Shrimpton

Who is on your fashion radar this spring? Some people always have their favorite style icons & others get inspired by the trends & have new icons each season….and as the sunshine begins to replace the snow & the winter season goes, it’s time to get inspired for Spring Summer 2017! Usually I’m always inspired by those who are a little offbeat & bold, but right now I’m so loving all the retro floral prints & pretty dresses that were on the SS17 runways, as well as all the feminine chiffons, ruffles upon ruffles, crisp cotton tops & of course the color PINK. This brings to mind the retro-modern days of the swinging sixties where women got into music, art & the “mod pop fashion scene” of London.

 

This season, I’m inspired by Jean Shrimpton in the 1960’s. 

 

Jean Shrimpton is an English model and actress. She was considered “The Face of the 60’s” & was one of the first supermodels! She had an amazing, memorable & truly timeless style that still resonates today….I love her feminine yet modern look.

The Look- Retro. Modern. Feminine

get inspired…

Get inspired by Spring’s Fab Floral Prints….The Inspiration: “Flower Girl”

flower-girl

Currently craving…. Bright Colors & Bold Floral Prints for Spring/ Summer ’17.

For the Spring/ Summer season, there were some great designer collections with retro-inspired & playful flower print dresses, tops & jackets that totally remind me of 60’s & 70’s “Flower Power” dresses. I’ve always loved hunting through vintage shops for those one of a kind dresses in prints so similar to those that went down the runways of Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga & Chloe this season.

I can’t wait for spring to get here & to start embracing some bright colors, retro accessories & fun prints again!

Here are some of my favorite “Flower Girl” inspired items for SS17:

Ruffles, Embroidery & Metallics

 HOW TO START WEARING THE NEW SPRING TRENDS IN WINTER…


Lately, I’ve been dreaming about the upcoming spring summer season & finding ways to start adding in the new style trends into my current winter look. I’ve been loving all things PINK and RUFFLED with METALLIC accessories, pastel hued FAUX FUR & bold EMBROIDERIES. It’s also fun to play with different fabric textures & SATIN is definitely set to replace fall’s VELVET looks this spring.

You can wear SATIN & RUFFLES for day & mix with RIPPED DENIM & boots, or dress it up for night time with heels and bold accessories. Speaking about accessories…it’s a fun way to get a jump on the spring summer trends  a little bit early.

I wore this ZARA faux fur coat with a TOPSHOP satin ruffle top (on sale!), my favorite J BRAND ripped jeans & new TOPSHOP metallic booties (on sale!) &  embroidered handbag. This is such a fun & affordable look!

Stepping into January with optimism & thinking about bright & happy days……the best is yet to come…… Happy 2017

The Inspiration #5 SWEET SUMMER

Spring is in the air…..dreaming about sun filled days in the park, green grass, pretty flowers, sitting by a lake….those first few days of warmth when you put on a new dress and sandals and you can actually leave your jacket at home….so good to be back in New York City after so many years in California! Experiencing the extremes of cold weather and rain again makes the anticipation of sunny spring & summer days so much sweeter…..

The Inspiration #5: Sweet Summer

rose gold, ballerina tulle, romantic interiors, pink champagne, fresh cut peonies & tulips…..
