It’s officially springtime! Clothing brands have been successively coming up with new styles and items for the spring/summer season. Editors, models and fashionistas are all overwhelmed by the playful colors and textures championed on the runways during New York and London Fashion Weeks. Still looking for ideas on what to wear for the coming spring and summer? Here are a few S/S 2017 highlights that you should definitely pay attention to:
Bra Top / Bralette
The Bralette is making its return in full force, this time with more modern and feminine touches. As this new trend obviously makes the bralette upscale, you can wear it not only over cute little tops and boyfriend button-downs, but also over full knit sweaters. On the sportier side of things, we have the swimsuit bralette as well! For a sexier look, the laced bralette surely delivers. It’s a fun yet classy way to show off some skin without leaving a “regular” bra fully visible.

Lots and lots of ruffles dominated the streets of London during the fashion week and it looks like they will continue on to become a massive hit soon. Such flirty detail has been employed onto many garments, be them jackets, dresses or tops. You can balance the femininity that these ruffles scream with chic one-shoulder tops while the voluminous skirts can be effortlessly styled just as a pair of jeans. These ruffles promise to perfectly uplift any look for you.

Stripes never really fade out of fashion and you can rarely go wrong by reinventing them in different ways. This season, stripes are spotted everywhere. They impress us with bright and bold colors that spell out preppiness, sportiness and even elegance sometimes. For a timeless nautical style, you can stick to stripes in vibrant primary colors like red and blue.

From fiercely edgy to sugar sweet, laced-up shoes that are either tightly strapped or loosely fastened to reveal what’s underneath can be worn with socks and stockings or with open backs. They also complete your fashion statement of awesomeness by simply posing as an accessorizing element on sandals and boots. Even when there isn’t a single overt and deliberate attempt at sexiness, lace-up shoes give you plenty of allure to go around.
