Fashion Month is a wrap! If you’re looking for upcoming trends to unlock inspiration in your next MyWear collection, you’re in luck! We have scoured the runways in search of the next big thing. Our prediction? More is more. It appears that the zeitgeist has moved on to something bigger, shinier, and brighter. Almost as if in direct response to 90’s minimalism and the normcore tendencies of 2015 & 16, designers went all out for next year, guiding us to a more playful, out-of-the-box approach to dressing (seriously, you cannot fit these shoulders in a box). Find our 2017 trend picks below!
Oh my 80’s
By far, the biggest trend to hit the Spring 2017 runways was 80s-EVERYTHING. Volume, shoulders, gold lame–it all made an appearance. Love it or hate it, you’ll be seeing far more of it in 2017, although we’ve yet to see how it will actually translate for everyday wear… Brace yourself, things could get interesting!
Lace, ruffles and billowy, high-collar blouses-oh my! Many collections had an old-timey, Victorian-esqe quality about them, although most were mixed with more modern aspects, as well. Gucci, for example, paired Victorian silhouettes with sequins, surprising colors, and graphic text. We’re predicting that we’ll all be seeing a lot more lacey and ruffled romantic frocks at the mall by this time next year.
Neon colors were all over the runways, but by far the color that seemed to get the most props from designers was bright, playful pink… especially in the way of dresses. Design your own dress in your custom size here!
You can always expect to see floral prints on Spring runways, and 2017 is no different. But, next year, prints are on vacation. Get ready for some early-aughts Quicksilver nostalgia! The runways were filled with cheerful, tropical prints.
Designers are still obsessed with shoulders. Summer 2016’s off-the-shoulder blouses will be replaced with Flash Dance-style skin-baring and shoulder pads that would make Klaus Nomi proud.
Rupaul and Cher rejoice! Look at all the sequins that sparkled down the runway this month.
Stripes are still cool af, according to 2017 collections. Keep them bright and a little cartoon-y to fit in with this trend.
As you can see, there’s a little something for everyone in 2017. But, fashion month shined down especially bright for those of us looking for bold designs, rich materials, and over-the-top inspiration. Thanks, NY, London, Milan, and Paris! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next season!
