Must Have Fashion Items for Spring 2017
Now that we’ve made it through another exciting awards season filled with all kinds of fashion hits, risks, and some missteps, it’s time to look ahead to the must-have fashion items for spring 2017 in women’s clothing. Some of these trends are already popping up on celebrities and fashionistas that are anxious to bring in the spring wear, and of course all the top designers have shown us their must-have looks for the upcoming season.
So, let’s cut through all the items and get right down to business and identify those top “must-have” items for the spring.
The Return of the White Sneaker
For those who follow fashion religiously, then you are well aware of the fact that trends return every decade or so, and with that said it should come as no surprise that the white sneaker is making a return. Think the traditional Stan Smith style of show that Adidas is known for. A simple white sneaker with maybe just a pop of color from the logo is exactly what’s trending.
As far as the cut of the shoe goes, you can opt for a low, mid, or high cut sneaker – whatever you prefer. If you’re a little bit wary of this trend, stay away from the high-cuts as that can be a whole lot of white sneaker that you’re sporting on your foot!
What makes this such a great fashion must-have is that it can be worn by all ages and actually is comfortable to wear. There is no need to be a slave to fashion with this hot trend.
Exaggerated Shoulders to Create a Strong Shape
As you read that title it’s pretty normal for one to assume we’re talking about shoulder pads, and yes that’s exactly right. It’s hard to believe this has come back, but ladies that is exactly the case. Look for structured jackets that emphasize the shoulder and create a strong shape. Where you’ll find them the most are in suit jackets/blazers.
The wonderful thing about creating a strong shoulder is that it can help to make your waist look smaller and leaner, and who doesn’t love that?
Khaki Pants – the Ultimate Wardrobe Staple
It’s always great when a trend just so happens to be a piece of clothing that acts as a staple in your wardrobe. Khaki pants are showing up just about everywhere and even feature some fun new modern twists. You can opt for a loose fitting khaki or grab a pair of slim fitting styled pants. Just make sure it’s got the over-sized pockets and you’re good to go.
This trend can easily be paired with other hot items for spring and depending on how you style the pants, they can be ultra-casual, business casual, or even work for a night out on the town.
Put the Skinny Trousers Aside
Ladies it’s time to push those skinny trousers to the back of your closet as the wide legged trouser is taking over the runways. If you want an instant wardrobe makeover, this is the item to pick up. Wide-legged trousers pair beautifully with a variety of different shirts, blouses, and tops and can make for a very streamlined effect.
While long wide-legged trousers are certainly hot right now, so are cropped wide-legged pants in cotton, denim, and linen. The great thing about the crops is that they can carry over into summer and still be worn comfortably.
Platform Heels – Yes They are Back!
Here’s another item that you may already be familiar with and recall the last time they were the “must-have” fashion accessory. Platform heels are back once again and are popping up in all kinds of styles, materials, colors, and heel heights.
This time around you’ll want to be more adventurous with your platform heels. This means you shouldn’t be afraid to pair them with a casual pair of jean capris, a linen skirt, or trousers. As far as the height of the heel goes – with platforms it’s all about going big. You want something with a big chunky heel that is nice and high.
Items for All Budgets and Tastes
It seems as though spring will be filled with a variety of must-have items available in all different budgets and tastes. This means you’ll be able to grab the items you like and really make a statement with your wardrobe. As a final note, don’t be afraid to take these “must-have” items and style them in your own unique way. This is a great way to show off your own personality and creativity.
