Summer Fashion Trends 2017

Hello, my fellow fashionistas! What’s up? Summer is a few days away, so I only find it appropriate to talk about the summer fashion trends of 2017. All fashion freaks (raise your hand if you are one like me) need to know what is trending right now, because how on earth are we going to get our summer closet ready? What are we going to pack in our suitcases for our summer vacation?

But, don’t worry my loves… I got you covered! After many hours of research and photoshop editing, I present to you the trends that made their appearance in the catwalks of many famous brands for their Spring/Summer 2017 collections.

Summer Fashion Trends 2017

Stripes Everywhere

We have seen them on almost every catwalk, but some brands launched entire collections with stripes. Whether they are worn in a casual way or in a more formal one, one thing is for sure: we will be seeing them A LOT this season!

Bra Tops

You don’t need to hide your bra anymore because now it is taking its place under the spotlight! If you have a lot of confidence, go fetch some crop tops and forget the term “top” for this season. They can be worn with jeans, with evening skirts, under see-through garments, etc… You can’t go wrong with them!

Bare Shoulders

The designers’ obsession with bare shoulders is still on, with strategically placed cutouts. Definitely, invest in some tops and dresses of this style!

Sheer Fabrics

For sure, one of my favorite trends of this season! Wear a sheer garment over a crop top or over a mini dress and you will look cool in zero time! I wouldn’t recommend it just over your underwear if you are faint-hearted, but if you feel very confident be sure to do it 😛

Florals Everywhere

Well, I have to admit florals are no surprise for spring and summer, but this time designers took a step further and styled them from head to toe. I could say that in some cases this trend is flirting a bit with the seventies kitsch. If you wear them wisely though, you can’t go wrong.

Ruffles were huge on the S/S 17 catwalks. Both in size and popularity. We saw them on every show (try to find a designer that didn’t have them) and on every garment, styled in a very effortless and even sometimes casual way.

Super Bright Colors

Pink and yellow were the most common colors we saw, but if you don’t feel like wearing them, then there is a big variety of bright colors in the S/S 17 collections. One thing I can say for sure. Don’t hesitate to wear lots of it.

You will have realized by now that the 80’s decade inspired looks still continue, but more daring than before. Do you feel like wearing a ruffled see-through little dress on an everyday basis? Well, you can! What about that shocking pink top you have hidden in your closet? Now’s the time to show it proudly to the world! What I like this season is that WE make the rules. We can wear whatever we want, whenever we want in every possible way we can imagine. After all, expressing our unique personality and style is the point of fashion! That’s my opinion at least.

I hope this post about the summer fashion trends of 2017 was informative and useful for you!

    Hello here. Thanks for showing fashion trends for 2017.
    I like bright colors all time. It does not matter if it is a winter or summer something must be bright in my list of clothes and accessories.
    Can you tell about types of fabric? I adore silk and cotton. Unfortunately, I see plenty of polyester around. Maybe now the polyester is better quality, who knows?
    I do not see Channel and Gucci in your collection.
    Of course, they are expensive but they offer great ideas for other designers and manufacturers.
    Thanks for the great collection of trends for upcoming summer.
    All the best, be healthy and wealthy, Nemira.

      Hello my dear Nemira! I might do another post talking about fabrics then! I’m a huge fan of silk and cotton, i love their feel and i don’t think they will ever be out of fashion. Well, i like channel and Gucci a lot myself and they also followed some of these trends, so i picked some images as an example, but that doesn’t mean i don’t like them equally. Thank you for stopping by!
