Spring 2017 is the season in which you make your own statement! The ‘80s style adoption persists. We still see the inclusion of bright colors, such as red, fuchsia, yellow, electric blue and green, with a variety of folds, pompous sleeves, lots of layers, and different textures.
The greatest thing about trends is that you can mix and match as much as you want! So if you feel like having a sophisticated look or one that is more punk – ‘80s related – this is your moment.
I put together an outfit mixing some of these trends. The first piece of my look was a white cropped top from Zara’s Spring 2016 collection. As I mentioned in my previous posts, the minimalist and monochromatic fashion is still IN, and I believe it will remain a little longer. Then, I decided to play around with the pompous feature, so I included the red pants with a wide boot. The wide boot is being utilized again, especially in jeans. Nowadays, the skinny jeans are not as fashionable as before. What’s trending now is MOVEMENT.
To get more into details, I added a gold chain belt that not only gives to my look a sophisticated touch but also enhances my waist line. An essential element of the ‘80s look is to highlight the women’s silhouette. This can be done by wearing belts or by using dresses and skirts at waist height. Also, it’s important to be consistent with the accessories. In this case, I matched the chain belt with my earrings and rings. The three pieces followed the same style and shared the same color palette.
Moreover, the sky-high stilettos are a MUST HAVE piece for this season. Yves Saint Laurent took possession of this feature during the fashion week; the heels were out of this world. For this outfit, I used a pair of gold-platinum heels that also have a black strip surrounding my ankle. This detail enhances the shape of the legs; it’s basically the same effect that belts have on waistlines. I frequently ask myself, “What would I like to enhance or highlight today?” This question helps me to narrow down my options and facilitates my decision. In a matter of seconds, I already know what trends and accessories I want to use.
This look is simple, monochromatic and sophisticated. It can be worn for many occasions, such as cocktail parties, drinks night, and even to go clubbing. Remember that you are the one who sets your own style. Don’t limit yourself. Make your own statement and make them look TWICE!
