The seasonal trends are always interesting to me! I love to google things like ‘summer trends’, ‘summer 2017 trends’, ‘summer 2017 fashion’, etc. This is a what I did Tuesday. My intention was to post this on the first day of Summer (yesterday), but alas, I have a job. There were several sites that I scoured for information regarding this new season’s trends: Elle, WhoWhatWear, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Fashionizer, and more… My goal was to find items that were actually agreed upon as Summer 2017 trends by each of these sites. Here is what I found…
These trends were listed by at least one of the sites:
Pink – particularly of the fuchsia variety (aka Pink Yarrow), stripes – from school uniform to sailor and more, white dresses, red shorts, hats, Primrose yellow pants, camouflage, wide-leg pants, gingham, basket-bags, retro-kinis, wrap dresses, white sneakers with sundresses, gladiator sandals, laced jeans (as in shoe type laces up the side), crop tops, off the shoulders, sexy side slit, plunging necklines, sweatshirts, western, pants on pants aka layered pants, broad shoulders aka shoulder pads, and cutouts.
I am not discounting any of these as perfectly wonderful summer 2017 trends, I am simply focusing on the trends that were mentioned more than once. Here they are:
the detailed sleeve – ruffles, flutes, cropped, bunched, oversized
In addition to these fashion trends, I want to mention (or reveal if you do not already know) the color trends for Spring/Summer 2017. I would’ve done it months ago, but I didn’t have a blog.
