7 Essential Trends You Need For Spring

Winter just won’t seem to go away! Although we’ve wrapped up our first week of spring, the freezing cold temperatures are still lingering, making us crave some heat . Besides having warmer days, we are dying to push the furs to the back of the closet and bust out the short shorts and flowing frocks. If you are still getting your Spring/Summer looks together or just want to freshen up your wardrobe with new pieces, check out the 7 essential trends you need to incorporate this season.

Romance in Ruffles

Get a little fun and flirty with ruffles this spring. Whether dainty or voluminous , frills are blooming to be a major trend in 2017.

Year of the Stripes

Subtle or bold, stripes are a must have in 2017. You could play nautical or get Wall Street chic with this versatile trend.

Layers On Top Of Layers

Get creative and pile on the pieces to create a unique look. Take this trend even further by layering multiple textures and prints.

Pink Over Everything

It’s official-pink is the new IT color. Brighten up your wardrobe with various shades of the color du jour.

Off the shoulders

Slide the fabric to the side and show those sexy shoulders. Draped effortlessly or a deconstructed cutout, you can’t go wrong with showing a little skin.

Khaki 2.0

Who said Khaki was just for a uniform? The classic and practical textile has undergone a major makeover and has now become the staple of the season.

Peep Show

Tastefully give a little sneak peek with sheer. Opaque is definitely the way to go to keep cool while looking haute at the same time.

The Resurrection of Gucci

You’d have to be sleeping under a rock if you haven’t noticed Gucci’s rise to fashion glory. Over the past few seasons, the rules of fashion have been single handedly dismantled as each collection has featured both men and women strutting in a playful assortment of ruffles, appliqués, hardcore footwear and bright colors, pushing boundaries to create an overall eclectic, gender-fluid display. A stark contrast from the craftsmanship centered and structured collections of the former Creative Director, Frida Gianinni, Gucci has become a brand that is intriguing to every style preference from preppy to street wear. And it’s all thanks to the current Creative Director, Alessandro Michele.

Holding true to Gucci’s roots, Michele has pulled from the vault icons like the Double G logo and revived the classics with his youthful, whimsical flair. Michele has somehow managed to create timeless collections all while tastefully juxtaposing modern street wear with trends from periods of the past, infusing his love for vintage.

After being the Head of Accessories at Gucci since 2002 and with Fendi under Karl Lagerfeld in the late 90’s, Michele was thrust into the spotlight in 2015 when Gianinni abruptly departed the label. The fashion world was left in shock and doubt as Michele’s design abilities had not been vetted and was seen as a careless risk for CEO Marco Bizzarri to take. However, the newly appointed director turned out to be the jolt that Gucci so desperately needed.

Named as 2016’s top fashion brand, Michele has not only rejuvenated the Gucci name and image, but has shaken up the fashion world with his unrivaled vision and foresight, proving he was worth the risk. The Creative Director’s “anything goes” approach has successfully relaunched the Italian label as one of the world’s most recognizable brands. Celebs like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Cardi B have been seen out and about rocking pieces from the latest collections. Guess you could say taking a chance on Michele was all worth it in the end.
