After a long Winter, Spring has finally arrived and with it a fresh batch of fashion trends for you to try out! From washes of pinks and ruffled textures to statement sleeves and a fresh new take on gingham, the catwalk pictures for Spring/Summer 2017 were bursting with exciting new styles for women and rich with inspiration for clothing designers.
We may have been hard at work getting our Spring/Summer 2017 collection ready for launch, but the designers at Jolaby have not failed to pick up on this year’s themes and incorporate what they loved the most into our SS17 collection.
Without further ado, here is Jolaby’s run-down of 2017 fashion trends you should be wearing this season.
Storming the Spring/Summer 2017 runways was the staple print, Gingham. These small checks are proving to be the print of the season, which is no surprise when you consider how its incredible versatility allows for seamless application throughout a wide range of different clothing styles. A fantastic example of gingham’s adaptability can be found in the Jolaby Dare Label Pleat Front Tunic, in which the statement pattern can be worn casually during the day and teamed up with heels and transformed into the perfect evening outfit.
Shedding its reputation as an outdated pattern, it’s astonishing to see just how well-received gingham has been in SS17. Having said that, gingham has been making a comeback for some time now, as the Jolaby Gingham Wrap Ruched Dress from our signature collection has proved popular since its initial launch. Perfect for date night and cocktails; its cinched-in waist and draped neckline highlights a woman’s figure while the unsuspected twist of its multicoloured, tonal pattern makes its striking design a real show-stopper! You can also wear it with tights, boots and your favourite biker jacket for an edgy daytime look.
What better way to step into spring than with a pop of pink to brighten up your outfit, from subtle blushes to eye-catching bubble-gum pink. Formerly related to Barbie and Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods, pink has been reclaimed by fashion designers around the world for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Whether you choose to colour block by wearing a statement item or by layering up different hues, you can’t really go wrong if it’s a shade of pink!
With pieces like the Jolaby Dare Label Waterfall Back Top representing the trend, this is probably the most elegantly simple SS17 style for women to take advantage of this season.
Flowers are synonymous with Spring, so it should come as little surprise that Spring/Summer 2017 catwalks bloomed with a bouquet of bold floral prints to celebrate the start of a new season. Ditsy flowers and bold blooms make for the perfect transition from your winter wardrobe and are the only way to truly welcome back the warmer weather and longer days.
Style up floral dresses, like the Jolaby V-Neck Knee-Length Ruched Dress, with heels and a headpiece for the perfect Summer wedding guest attire.
This season, stripes are everywhere. From banker stripes and pinstripes to nautical stripes and the classic Breton, stripes deserve pole position within your wardrobe over Spring and Summer 2017. Of these, nautical stripes hold a special place in our heart as the use of reds and blues splashed together against streams of white cannot help but make you feel more vibrant and refreshed.
With outfits like the Jolaby SS17 Blue Stripe Cowl Hitch Dress currently in vogue, get ready to see stripes in all sizes and colours this Summer, on everything from dresses, trousers and shirts. Wear them alone as a statement piece or combine different pieces together to create a truly remarkable look.
