Spring fashion

With the new year comes the anticipation of the next fashion season, which, as always, will be bringing with it plenty of exciting trends. If you have been hoping to update your wardrobe in time for spring, these are some of the looks that are set to be red-hot this season. 

 

Bra-Tops 

Crop tops were all the rage in 2016, and spring 2017 will be taking this style even further. While this is a look that will only really be sported by those who are ultra-confident, bra-tops can be styled in so many different ways, and can really provide a breath of fresh air to your wardrobe. From Alexander Wang to Oscar de la Renta, these daring pieces can be paired with everything from casual cropped jeans to a sleek suit, giving you plenty of outfit choices. 

 

Neon Florals 

Florals are always a popular springtime print, but this spring, expect to see florals taken to a whole new level. Rather than soft and whimsical pastel shades, these florals will be decked out in neon hues, adding a burst of vitality to just about any outfit. 

 

Single Shoulder Cut-Outs 

The off-shoulder trend was huge last year, and while shoulders continue to rein in 2017, it will be just one shoulder, rather than both, that are on show. These strategically placed cut-outs, utilized by everyone from Tibi to Vetements to Monse, are sexy yet sophisticated, revealing a small flash of shoulder for maximum drama and impact. 

 

Supersized Bags 

While you may still be besotted with your go-to daytime clutch bag, handbags are set to be overhauled for 2017. Rather than small and dainty bags, expect to see plenty of supersized bags hit the stores, which not only give your outfit a new focal point, but also mean that you can carry around just about everything that you could possibly need. 

 

Statement Earrings 

From Prouenza Schouler to Creatures of the Wind, brands have been working hard to create accessories that really stand out. In particular, earrings are expected to be quite over-the-top for spring 2017, with extravagant shapes and shades that make the earrings a focal point of your look rather than just an added-on accessory. 

 

Navel-Grazing Pendants 

2016 was most definitely the year of the choker, with this piece seen on just about every runway. However, spring 2017 is set to go in the opposite direction, with chokers now becoming an accessory of the past. Instead, navel-grazing pendants are the accessory of choice, with everyone from Givenchy to Chloe to Prada creating their own version of this style. 

 

While it may take confidence and attitude to pull off some of these fashion trends, they are all quite wearable and can easily be incorporated into your outfit, no matter what your style may be. From neon florals to statement earrings, spring 2017 is set to be a bright, colorful and attention-grabbing season.
