Sorry, 90’s minimalism, you’ve had your fun. For the past year or two, it seems like every it girl has embraced black body suits, chokers, mom jeans, and, of course, those reflective round aviator sunglasses that seem to be everywhere. While the trend is still going strong (here’s looking at you Kendall, Gigi, and Hailey), celebrities and fashion’s elite are embracing a new aesthetic:
You can thank the sartorial genius Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s current Creative Director, for this breath of fresh air. The designer’s cool-meets-geeky, vintage-inspired, more is more approach has rendered some of this year’s most exciting and talked about collections. And, as a result, we’re predicting one of 2017’s most popular aesthetics. Sequins? Check. Embroidery? Check. Ruffles? You know it. Bows, rose broaches, loud prints? Heck yes! You name it and it was probably featured in one of Gucci’s 2016 collections. And that’s just how we like it. There seems to be a little something for everyone, drawing nostalgia from multiple decades and locations while maintaining it’s own unique… je ne sais quoi?
But don’t take our word for it! These celebrities are hardily endorsing the eccentric, globally-inspired, 70s geek-glam mash-up:
Look to Beyoncé’s Visual Album Lemonade too see all kinds of Gucci goodness, or a ton of her current wardrobe IRL. She’s such a fan that even little Blue Ivy gets her own Gucci to rock.
Jared Letto also knows what’s up (hint: It’s Gucci).
Those of us without the Beyoncé bank account can take inspiration and design our own one-of-a-kind look with MyWear! Select our free custom sizing option for an additional dose of luxury. Then, pin on a flower broach and slip into some loafers or platforms and you’re all set!
Time to rummage through your dad’s closet… His Hawaiian shirt collection is officially cool again! Celebrities and street style stars alike have been spotted wearing bright, tropical prints everywhere.
Brands like Gucci, DVF, and Clover Canyon have certainly helped this trend along, but you don’t need big bucks to make this look work for you! Upload your favorite Hawiian print to MyWear® for a custom take on this tropical trend!
Keep it modern by pairing your bold prints with neutral colors and clean lines. Or, try it out with some of summer’s other trends, like mules, off-the-shoulder blouses, or reflective sunglasses.
As it warms up the struggle to keep cool while staying stylish can lead us to wearing the same old faithful summer outfit to every barbecue, concert, and park picnic through July. But, don’t let the heat burn out your creativity! Summer is the perfect time to upgrade your lightweight tees into knockout outfits!

Normally, when we think of the color red, words that might come to mind are along the lines of “passion”, “action”, or “anger”. Color psychology associated with red represents “our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy.”
But, let us introduce you to the softer side of red. This look has been spotted multiples over the last week, especially at Cannes. Florals, naval stripes, and hints of nude and blush have been keeping things romantic, feminine, and, dare we say, soft?
Red is a classic color that never goes out of style, but with its current popularity, now is the perfect time to design something of your own in the timeless shade.
Here are just a few examples of how you can achieve this style with MyWear®:

If you’re a female celebrity attending Cannes Film Festival this year, there’s probably a 70% percent chance you’re wearing one of these colors:
a. Summer White (30%)
b. Yellow (18%, with an 85% likelihood of being paired with a red lip)
c. Silver (10%)
d. Tan/Nude (6%)
e. Lilac (6%)
If you’re not wearing one of the trends above, there is an 85% chance you’re wearing black.
If you’re trying to fact-check this math right now, don’t. It’s not accurate. But, the popularity of these colors on the red carpet speak for themselves!

Spring is in the air, and unsurprisingly, so are floral dresses! Soft and airy dresses in floral prints really aren’t a new concept. Heck, it’s been a spring stable for close to a century. But, this spring, floral has an especially strong hold on our hearts. Exhibit A. Kate Middleton’s tour of India:
Oh, just another day playing cricket or feeding a baby rhino in a stunning bohemian gown; delicate, globally-inspired jewelry; and effortless, perfectly-waved hair. Kate Middleton is living the dream.
