SPRING HAS SPRUNG
Look Fresh And Hopeful For The Spring Season Of 2017
BY BECCA Z. TOWERY
IT’S officially spring and it is now time for rejuvenation and fresh-starts. I’m not saying that you should completely rehaul your wardrobe, but there is no better time to rejig your style and shed the weight of last year’s faux pas after 2016’s final curtain. All of your chunky knits, parkas, fluffy socks and darkest colours should be stored away to make room for the lighter pieces, both in weight and colour. Down with dull and drab, up with fresh and zesty!
Spring is the transitional period, the time of year where we have the opportunity to start anew and reinvent ourselves. Think light fabrics: cotton, poplin, merino, and other soft and supple materials. Patterns add much-needed colour to your outfit – think floral, paisley, camo, tattersall, flecked, and heathered, – but beware of overdose; no one wants to look like a peacock.
“REMEMBER THAT COLOUR IS A VITAL PART OF A SPRING WARDROBE;
IT’S A SEASON OF NEW LIFE AND VIBRANCY.”
Springtime in 2017 is all about that vibrancy and the colour! Your clothes can reflect this perfectly and correspond to the mood and shades of the season ahead. If all else fails pastels are your best friend. As spring is balanced on the edge of winter and summer, balance is the key to your outfits. Balance pastels with reliable neutrals like grey, beige, and stone. Khaki is seeing a resurgence, which is good news as it’s so versatile, viable for professional looks or more of a street style flavour.

The spring 2017 fashion trends have an answer to this summer’s off-the-shoulder phenomenon: the one-shoulder top or off -the-shoulder dress like shown here. The options range from ’80s-inspired to deconstructed shirting.
You’ll find stripes this spring season, but I remember the last time they were this bright and bold. They’re especially fresh in the form of a knit dress.
We saw florals for fall and we were convinced the look was anything but hippie dippy. Which is why I am very happy to see them return for spring in the form of floaty dresses at labels like No. 21 (with sequins no less) and Rag & Bone.
