7 Style Trends for Spring 2017 from New York Fashion Week

7 Style Trends for Spring 2017 from New York Fashion Week

Autumn might be in the air, but spring is on the runway at New York Fashion Week. Though only halfway through the women’s ready-to-wear seasonal collection debuts (the fashion shows conclude this Thursday), we’re already spotting some fresh style trends for Spring 2017. These seven emerging sartorial themes are sure to pop up like daisies after the winter snows. So what’s on everyone’s lips and hips? Take a tour with Spey.


  1. See Now, Buy Now

Patience is not a virtue of shoppers today. With instant, streaming access to fashion shows and collections online, the styles walking down the runway one afternoon are the next day hanging in one’s closet. Consumers are demanding instant gratification and New York fashion houses are acquiescing.


  1. Bleach Blonde Beach Locks

Who wants to emerge from winter looking like they haven’t lived these last few months? Surf-blonde dyes are bouncing down the runways, most exemplarily in the Guido Palau hairstyles at Alexander Wang. Even front row fashionista Kylie Jenner donned the look for the show.


  1. Playfully Feminine Eye Glosses

From glossy nude to electric Technicolor (hello fuchsia and tangerine at Dion Lee, and smudges of orange at Altuzarra), the eye style trends for Spring 2017 are all about flash. For the more subtle but no-less on point, a skin tone base and a glossy sheer overlay is everything you need.


  1. Bohemian Hair Accessories

Your hair can accessorize, too. Adam Selman walked velvet and Plexiglass barrettes down the runway, as Baja East showed dyed bandanas and Ryan Roche wove rough-edge silk into tight ballerina buns. The range in hair accessories ensures a touch of dazzle for every hairstyle and cut.


  1. Print on Print on Print

Spring is that refreshing leap into sunnier days and warmer weather, but it is not immune to an unexpected, chilly breeze. Layers are a busy woman’s best friend and the style trends for Spring 2017 mix and match clashing prints, textures, and fabrics for high-impact fashion drama.


  1. Models You’d Actually Want as Friends

Step aside hungry Amazons – real women are taking the runway. Finally, fashion houses are waking up to real-world body types and parading clothes for the every-woman. Collections from Opening Ceremony to Chromat tapped friends, employees, and best customers to showcase their looks.


  1. A Touch of Luster

Pearls (those most delightful organic gems) are cropping up on catwalks in inventive ways. Jonathan Simkhai contrasted pearl chokers with decadently dangling pearl earrings (shown), while Desigual stitched pearls onto bling-embellished rubber-soled flat sandals. We love finding new ways to wear pearls!

These common threads weaving through the designer collections are sure to shake-up spring fashion. Looking to rock that It Girl style, too? The stylists at Spey are here to help. We work with you to translate style trends for Spring 2017 into your everyday wardrobe; helping you look your best, feel your best, and wear the best pearls and pearl jewelry from our home in Washington, DC.
