TWO MAJOR APPAREL TRENDS FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2017
These days, the word “trend” has morphed into a verb, as people everywhere are obsessed with all things “trending.” Be it celebrity news, politics or better yet, fashion – we all crave what’s hot.
Here are two significant apparel trends that are sweeping down the runways:
It’s back to the future, as designers reach for future inspiration from eras long past. Poet sleeves, ruffles, satin and velvet are recurring fabric choices. Intricate bodices, embellishments and attention to detail evoke just the right balance between past and future.
Off the other edge of the style spectrum is the the trend toward structured modern silhouettes – boxy shoulders and cinched waists that assert feminine strength. Playful asymmetrical lines add movement and attitude.
