BLOOMING MARVELOUS

THE SPRING 2017 TRENDS WE CANNOT WAIT TO WEAR

Out with the layers and in with a little bit of skin! It’s a Love has the scoop on the hottest Spring trends for 2017. Straight from the runway, here’s a roundabout of the cute and flirty looks you need in your closet for the upcoming season! Hurry up April, we are waiting for you!

 

CROP TOPS ARE OUT AND BRA TOPS ARE IN

Not too long, bralettes made their well-received fashion debut. But if the catwalks are anything to go by, they will absolutely reign in the Spring. Instead of the usual peekaboo effect under t-shirts, the coolest way to wear the piece is as an actual top. If you dare to be bold, pair it with high-waisted shorts - perfect for your spring break getaway! The most traditional ladies can still join in: thrown on a blazer and the result is sophisticated yet sexy.

 

THE EAR CANDY BINGE

Bid farewell to discrete stud earrings.The talk of the town for the upcoming season includes big and bold accessories adorning your earlobes. Pieces like these are the perfect choice to instantly step-up a casual t-shirt and jeans outfit. Various designers exhibited earrings that are borderline shoulder-grazing and will look amazing with lob haircuts. Another good idea is to slick your hair back into a top-knot and let those earrings do all the talking.

 

FOR THE LOVE OF PINK

Few colors represent spring as well as pink. Spotted in most shows, the hue is a safe bet for the blooming season ahead of us. From delicate pastels to shocking pink, it’s easy to incorporate the shade into your outfits. Think delicate, satin-made camisole tops or a bright sweater with light-wash jeans. Fresh, feminine and easy - we’re loving this pop of color after months of subdued neutrals.

 

SLOGAN TEES

If there is one trend that kept popping up on the runways it was the wordy t-shirt frenzy. Designers went all out when it came to messages and personally, we couldn’t be more excited to jump in on the bandwagon. “We should all be feminists” is our personal favorite. After all, girl-power is the way to go! Slogan tees are the easiest way to give your outfit a little bit of an edge and let everybody know where you stand.

 

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT WITH FLATFORMS

We love that extra bit of height, but not so much the pain from needle-thin heels.The flatform trend remains strong - thank god! - and will be the perfect shoe to wear during the warmer months. If you are still skeptical about this look, start slow. Neutral flatform loafers look awesome with jeans. A heavy chunky sandal pairs well with more delicate dresses. The contrast is fun and keeps your outfits trendy!

 

ROBES: THE NEW OUTERWEAR LUXURY

We say robe, you think Hugh Hefner? Wrong! The luxurious silk robe is a welcome addition to the lingerie as outerwear category. Long, flowing and delicate, it’s a fashionable statement for the brave of heart. Wear it as a jacket and always with heels for the ultimate it-girl street style.

 

FINALLY,  THE BEAUTY TALK

No-makeup makeup isn’t new, but let’s be honest, we hadn’t seen it for a while. Ever since contouring became the new normal, we think nothing of piling on the products. But 2017 promises to be different.

 

Models exhibited a fresher look on catwalks with a hint of sheen here and there. The skin is almost bare in a matte cream foundation and always glowy with strategic highlighting. On the eyes? Creamy gold, pink and mint eyeshadows add the playful touch. The standard smokey eye was replaced by a smudgy, low-key version.

 

On the lips and cheeks, mauve lipstick worn as blush gave the most natural flush. The rule of thumb seems to be natural with a little sparkle. Think pretty girl makeup, not femme fatale. With that said, a little magic never hurts, so bring on the glitter!
