The world’s most stylish women hit the streets of fashion capitals, giving outfit inspiration for all year round. As fashion month comes to a close, street style trends emerge and we get a taste of what needs to be in our wardrobe for the coming seasons.
PANTONE SPRING 2017 COLOURS
The Pantone Colour Institute have announced their top 10 colours for Spring 2017 in conjunction with New York Fashion Week. The collection of colours includes earth tones and pastel colours, which have already made their debut on the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Various street style looks showed off Pantone’s top shades for next spring, as trend setters stepped out in style. Most of the colours in the collection were captured with bright colours, as there were dresses in the colour Flame, a bright red-based orange, as well as skirts and accessories coloured in Primrose Yellow.
It seems that people have ditched their over-the-top outfits for a simple yet elegant long-sleeve dress in London. The long sleeve dress, which is more substantial than the on-trend slip dress and more feminine than trousers, has become a practical staple for Londoners this fashion month.
If you’re a fan of the classic ‘little black dress’, try shaping it up with a more sophisticated long sleeve dress in vibrant shades and prints, which can become the centrepiece of an outfit with little effort. Long sleeve dresses were accessorised with either plain belt, hardly any jewellery, micro bags and shoes.
After reappearing on the runway of Fall 2016, the corset — a centuries-old accessory — has made its way onto the streets of Milan. The corset was styled on Kim Kardashian for the June cover and editorial of Vogue Australia and she has since included it in her own wardrobe.
The corset can be worn in many ways: Over floral and t-shirt dresses, and — to create a masculine look — it can be worn with tailored pants. This accessory has become a staple in the wardrobes of stylists, editors and it girls worldwide.
Paris marks the final leg of fashion month; where the fashion community saved their best looks for last. Living up to the expectations of Parisian style, the streets were filled with high-end polished, feminine and edgy designer pieces.
The uncertain weather saw a variety of coats that were either draped over the shoulder or accompanied by a floral dress. Oversized sweaters and button up shirts were worn with short leather skirts to create an edgy look, or paired with vintage denim to create an effortless and undone look. A touch of masculinity, was also seen as models and ‘it girls’ took to the streets in graphic Vetements hoodies.
A key part to any outfit is, of course, the accessories. Shoes and bags are a more personal item and get a lot more wear in your wardrobe. The streets of fashion month were filled with loafers, embellished or floral velvet Mary Janes and micro bags. These quirky accessories add character to any outfit and, unlike a one-off dress, can be worn frequently when styled in different ways.
