Runway shows aren’t always directly applicable to your everyday style, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking inspiration and making them work for you. As you start planning out your new wardrobe for the new year, we’ve rounded up a list of Spring/Summer 2017’s most wearable trends for you to try out at home.
As feminine and sexy as they are, bustier tops can be too revealing for daywear. This is when you can make use of the art of layering by wearing it on top of a sweater, or even a sculptural shirt to create a statement look.
Where to buy: Proenza Schouler cropped waffle-knit sweater (HK$3,983) / John Galliano Vintage bustier top (HK$1,709) / Erdem Malia kayo lily print duchess-satin skirt (HK$7,003) / Nicholas Kirkwood Beya grained-leather backless loafers (HK$2,703).
Following the love of retro logo tees last season, designers are presenting designs with meaningful slogans for Spring. Pair yours with an asymmetric shirt with a modern cut for a boost of urban edge.
From pastel to metallic, brands like Valentino and Céline are featuring different hues of pink on their Spring 2017 runway. Too girly? Keep it simple by restricting the colour to one item only and accessorise with a touch of red for a contemporary finish.
Where to buy: Sea ruffled macramé-lace cotton top (HK$2,435) / Peter Pilotto high-rise wide-leg trousers (HK$5,364) / Oscar de la Renta Large Impatiens clip earrings (HK$3,950) / Sergio Rossi SR1 natural python sabot with leather fringes (HK$9,700).
Elizabethan-inspired designs such as ruffled gowns and puffed up sleeves are seen all over the runways for Spring 2017. Mix-and-match a ruffled blouse with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a touch of retro elegance to your casual chic attire.
