Top five fashion trends for Spring 2017

chlobo.co.ukWhile most people are wrapping up warm for the winter time, those who are hot on the heels of the fashion industry know that the past couple of months have really been about Spring 2017. With the New York and Paris fashion shows now over with, retailers are looking ahead to what they’ll be stocking when the temperatures start to improve. Without further ado, check out my top five fashion trends

  1. Beach hut vibes

If you’re already planning your seaside retreat for the summer next year then you’ll be pleased to know about this first trend, because it’s all about channelling that classic beach hut vibe. Think plenty of stripes in a variety of bright, vibrant colours. Reds and blues for that nautical twist, as well as pastels for a softer look. It ties in perfectly with another spring trend: yellow. It will be bursting out of the shops in a huge array of shades, patterns, floral designs and accessories, so look out for a stripy yellow dress if you want to be bang on trend.

  1. Kitten heels return

There hasn’t been much love for the kitten heels of late, but these are all over the French designs on the runways for 2017. From peep toes to ankle boots, the kitten heels have slowly crept back into street style, and they’re a way of adding a touch of elegance to an otherwise casual outfit.

  1. Show off the shoulders

One thing is clear from looking at the torso of every model on the runway: the shoulders are what matter in 2017. Whether it’s the asymmetrical cut-out look that has everyone going wild, or the drop shoulder that creates that romantic gypsy style, you’ll find an exposed shoulder everywhere you turn. When it comes to accessorising, I’d always try to highlight the dropped shoulder even more, by adding a bracelet layer over the top of the sleeve – you can check out a variety of different designs and materials right here, for your own unique look.

  1. No time to waist

One thing’s for sure, you’ll be dusting off your collection of waist belts this spring to help accentuate your waist. At least, that’s what’s been happening at this year’s fashion shows: from supple leather to chainmail and studded fabric, there were hundreds of belts on the catwalk to state plainly that waistlines never need to be boring again. If you’re an hour-glass figure, you’ll probably be more drawn to the corset styles and waist-cinchers, but don’t discount the fold-over waist either for something a little subtler.

  1. Think pink

Finally, fuchsia seems to have taken over the runway completely. From the stunning cape dresses of Valentino to robes and even trench coats, for a sure-fire way to brighten up your spring, this is the trend for you. If you have a summer ball, take inspiration from the stunning Hermès tulle skirted evening gown.

Have you heard of any other big fashion trends on the horizon?

Jewelry Guide: Indian Bride Jewelry

Bridal hairstyles are incomplete without bridal hair jewelries. These not only adorn the hairstyle but are also essential bridal jewelry. A bridal hair jewelry comprises of beads, jewel comb, jewel hair pins, Maang tika, Tiara, Strands of pearls and many more.  A maang tika is a traditional bridal hair jewelry that consists of two parts. The maang ( string ) rests on the center hair parting via small hook that allows it to get attached to the hair. Whereas the tikka (pendant) rests on the forehead.

Jewelry Guide: Bridal Statement Necklace

real bride necklaces (11)

I love when a bride decides to be daring and amp up her bridal gown with a bold statement necklace.  It’s an unexpected twist, and it’s the perfect compliment to almost any dress.  You can find statement necklaces in so many different styles: chunky beads, vintage pearls, fabric floral, or sparkling rhinestones.
