New York Fashion Week, a week long fashion exhibition, is often a good indicator of the trends to come for the upcoming spring season, and this year’s looks had no shortage of wearable pieces and adorable options to add to your spring wardrobe.
First and foremost, continuing the trend from the winter months, the athleisure trend will continue to go strong. Leggings, sweatshirts and spandex provide options for those interested in maintaining comfort, as well as dressing on-trend.
It’s no secret that 2017 has been a divisive political year, and most people have a lot to say about the happenings in the government this season. This is why we can predict that slogan clothing and graphic tee shirts may see a comeback this season, as clothing tends to provide a canvas for expression, particularly in things like politics.
The one trend that seems to recur almost every spring and summer season is the use of bold colors, such as vibrant, reds, oranges, yellows and blues. This year, however, we can expect to see these vibrant colors paired with black and horizontal stripes.
Though this trend may not be appropriate to wear to school, bras under jackets were big during NYFW, and may be more practical for the warmer weather of states like California, rather than the rainy springs we tend to see in the Pacific Northwest.
In general, we can expect to see a lot of clothing from the 1980’s and 1990’s making a comeback, as we have seen through 2016. This can partially be attributed to the rise in popularity of used clothing shopping among millennials.
We can expect to see an adventurous 2017 spring full of people embracing the individuality of fashion, and enjoying the trends presented at NYFW.
