‘Tis the season for friends of fashion from around the globe to come together and celebrate. It’s New York Fashion Week and I couldn’t be more excited to report on the top trends from some of my favorite designer’s Spring/Summer 2017 collections. Shows began last week and will run through this Thursday, so there’s still time to follow along.
Follow #NYFW on social media for the inside scoop on everything from show schedules, to backstage model photo ops and of course interviews and sneak peeks with the designers themselves.
Because today marks the halfway point for NYFW, I wanted to provided a quick recap of the two trends I’ve seen so far that are simply taking over the runways. Also, lucky for you these two looks happen to be a version of fashions that were seen in Spring/Summer 2016, so there’s a chance you will be able to reinvent some of your trendy Tanger must-haves when the warmer weather blooms again.
1. The Shoulder
If you thought shoulders were big this year, just wait. It’s only the beginning for this sexy shape. 2016 was all about showing off the adored collarbone, horizontal lines and shoulder-to-shoulder fit. 2017 is taking it back to the peek-a-boo effect with one bare shoulder and strategically placed cutouts.
If you’re still finishing up your end of summer shopping and find off the shoulder looks on clearance, don’t pass them up! Check stores like H&M, Vince, Forever21 and Saks OFF 5th before they make their full fall transition.
2. The Trench
The trench made a subtle appearance this year, but it was much earlier in the spring and didn’t stick like last year’s designers had hoped. Well, no worries! It’s coming back in full force. Last year’s silhouette was structured and belted. The 2017 trench is much slouchier, using soft and slinky fabrics. The hem has also been extended to give a more fashion-forward effect.
There’s more to come fashion lovers! The excitement is only beginning. Be sure to subscribe (to the right) for more deets on these fab trends come Spring 2017. You don’t want to miss out.
Have a great week lovelies!
