· Spring/summer 2017 trends – costume jewellery ·
Some kind of madness breeze is blowing on costume jewellery trends this summer and we can assure you, without a doubt, that we will have lots of fun. Jewellery no longer only dresses up our ears, wrists, or cleavage… it also invades our handbags, key rings, and even our scarves, producing a surprising and funny effect. As far as styles go, we saw vintage, romanticism, animals, feathers and fringes. We told you: fashion addicts like us won´t get bored this summer!
Fringe jewellery: ethnical, in order to get at well-measured Pocahontas look, or a wiser one with suede and decorated with small chains, the fringe (that we already noticed in the last season) adorns our earrings, our necklaces and even our key rings! It´s THE subtle and original touch of the season and we can´t wait to adopt it.
Feather jewellery in order to go a 100% for the tribal look, we choose feathers. How to master this delicate and creative trend? There are plenty of options. As a pendent on a long chain, as a statement necklace or as earrings that we can either wear on both rings or mismatched, we´re in love with this original look!
Jewellery for handbags and key rings: spring means innocence, positive thinking and recovered lightness… and it is with pleasure that we will adopt these playful key rings and jewellery that dresses up our handbags. Yes indeed, wearing keys is no longer trifling, it´s a genuine fashionable deed! Coloured pompoms, glitter animals, funny fantasy characters… it´s impossible to do without them! The woman of the upcoming 2017 spring summer season is an eternal child and will go back to her youth with great pleasure!
Filigree jewellery: in a mood for subtle delicateness, evanescence and romanticism? We fell in love for the beautiful filigree trends, that wonderfully reproduces the meticulous work and old techniques of ancient jewellery making. We travel in time and start dreaming of Far East, Ancient Egypt and Greco-Roman legends when wearing sumptuous earrings and delicate transparent statement necklaces.
Vintage jewellery: more than ever, vintage is fashionable and jewellery is no exception. In order to achieve a great romantic look, we choose beautiful pendants which charm is almost passé, on long and thin chains. We are especially fond of classic pearls, tiny stones in soft colours, of foliages and the small birds that decorate them… all poetic symbols, delicate and somewhat nostalgic.
Folk jewellery, the finest of all: the folk trend and its bohemian inspirations coming from the lands where it´s good to live will delight us. Summer is synonym of relaxation and rest: what could be more appropriate than a good-looking piece of jewellery bearing a peace message of a love symbol? What could be more delicate than enchanting coloured medallion, a long chain with opal, lapis lazuli and other semi-precious stones? We can already picture ourselves in a Californian hippie-chic festival! We´ve got everything we need to adopt the peace and love attitude this summer!
Geometrical jewellery: winter already revealed this geometrical trend and those women who haven´t dared to succumb to this structured and power-shaped jewellery shall not resist anymore this upcoming season. Indeed, there is nothing more delicate than a bracelet curved with an architectural pattern to dress up a a bare wrist in summertime. Geometrical jewellery is a solid value, and it would be a mistake not to take it into account.
Animal pendants: this season, there is one trend that makes us smile: the animal pendant. We either spontaneously go for the one we prefer or we choose to carefully analyse what the cat, the owl or the elephant means to us in order to select our favorite one, according to which of softness, wiseness or force is more relevant to us. We´ll be proud to wear a pendant on which our favorite animal is decorated with enchanting and beautiful colorful stones. The animal pendant trend has a “lucky charm” side to it and we love it!
Ethnic jewellery: the ethnic inspiration has been in vogue for a few seasons and we´re delighted. Some say that, in some tribes, jewellery has beneficial powers on the body of who wears it, and that it can also show one´s status or belonging… and we just love this symbolic perspective given to fashion. We choose a piece of ethnic jewellery as a way to carry a positive message, appreciating the idea that its look and materials remind the traditional handicrafts. Statement necklaces weaved with pearls, colored stones, pompoms and mixed materials… we´re being spoilt for choice!
Scarves clips: the scarf has been a must-have item for many years already. We love it both in the winter and in the summer, but we don´t always know how to tie it to change styles without having to change scarves. The clip is the perfect solution! It gives a Sixties/retro look to the scarves you already own. This genuine piece of jewellery is available in many colours and is decorated with bright stones so you dazzle!
Wrap bracelets: summer makes us free and we want profusion and opulence! This summer trend got it and offers us magnificent combinations of wrap bracelets and necklaces. Why choose if we can wear it all together? We love it when cord mixes up with more simple materials in order to catch the light. This season, either around the neck or around the wrist, pleasure is multipilied and we love it!
Oversize earring: oversized earrings left their mark on Fashion Weeks. We succumb to this original way to enhance a minimalist outfit. Without a doubt we go for crazy-looking and coloured ones for a madwoman and different effect. The sole earring trend already caught our attention last winter and it´s becoming clearer as it combines perfectly with the XXL version of the earrings that we will fall for this summer.
· The must-have fashion accessories: spring summer 2017 trends ·
This upcoming season, we dare to choose our accessories among different registers. Western, classical dancing, or even travels to the world´s end, our “it” items are now the cowboy hat, ballet shoes, Japanese kimono and also the fringed suede top. We like to have fun and if we´re tempted to wear fancy dress, we do it with mastery by adopting subtle touches.
The kimono-like tunic: we saw it for the first time at music festivals last year: the kimono trend becomes confirmed this spring/summer 2017. This delicate and comfortable Japan-inspired piece is about to become essential in our wardrobe. We wear it with jeans in order to enhance a casual look or on leather pants to refine a more “rocky” outfit. Either short or long, the kimono-like tunic is the key item of this summer!
The bucket bag: together with shoes, the handbag is the basis of the woman´s wardrobe and we always choose any new one with extreme care. Our recommendation for the spring summer 2017? The bucket bag! All great fashion creators have it hand it became the it bag of the moment! We can either choose it ethnic and colored, or more classic in leather or even in fringed suede but there is absolutely no doubt about getting this small, adorable and practical model! To be worn during the day in order to twist up a laid-back look or at night for a perfect minimalist effect.
The suede top: we told you, suede is the powerful trend of this season and the suede top is definitely the hippest way to wear it! We can go for a skillfully elaborated model to get an original “hand-stitched” look, and even for the fringed version in order to resemble an Indian princess.
The summer poncho: the poncho is not only a winter accessory! It´s also our best buddy during fresh summer nights or mornings when lazy sun is still slow to warm us up… The summer poncho, either simple or more elaborated, will enhance any light and minimalist outfit, achieving a mastered trendy effect.
The cowboy hat: Madonna never left it out, and fashion designers have interpreted it their own way: the cowboy hat is back on this summer. We won´t doubt a second about wearing it, not only to protect us from the sun, but also because its original look will enhance all our outfits. However, our designers recommend not to go for the total Western look: avoid wearing at the same time this headgear, your good old cowboy boots and your ever-lasting leather jacket! 🙂
Pompom scarf: for years the scarf has been a key figure in our wardrobe and this season, it is decorated with pompons for a light summery look. These small threaded details we love highlight the fabric and enhance its colours. The scarf almost becomes a piece of jewellery and we like it!
Platform shoes: the modern woman is coquette and feminine but she’s also active and often overwhelmed, so she’s not always in a mood to wear high heels. The compensated platform is the solution for those who want to grow a few centimeters up and be a 100% comfortable. Fashion loves us this season and we say thank you!
Ballet pumps: have you always dreamed of dancing ballet and of wearing – without any complex – a tutu and adorable ballet shoes? Well your dream comes true this season, since ballet pumps are definitely fashionable. Worn with a pretty dress, slim jeans or hidden in your handbag as a comfy alternative to the heels you’ve been wearing all day, the ballet pump is the essential item of this season. We love it shiny but we can also go for black ones for a timeless and more classical look that never fails.
The oversized shopping bag: Mary Poppins´ magic bag always made you fantasise? The oversize trend turns fiction into reality and offers us, once again this summer, women’s best friend: the oversized bag. Whether we choose it to lug our life around or we just love it for its casual look, the XXL bag is a safe bet. This season, we detected it in a basic and uncluttered version for a timeless and minimalist look, but also embroidered and very colourful, in plaited wicker, fabric or leather.
The turban-like square scarf: used as a delicate alternative to a scarf or simply in order to highlight an outfit, the square scarf worn as if it were a turban is a practical and laid-back option that should not be underestimated. We fold it in two and tie it in a neglected way around the neck for a superb volume effect.
· Materials and fabrics – trends spring summer 2017 ·
This summer, we´ll say goodbye to eye-catchy sophistication, what´s in is what´s natural. Suede, silk, lace and crochet: what we want is purity and refinement. And we will not get bored since we´ll be playing with cuts, inspirations and… feathers!
Suede and synthetic suede: this season, suede will invade our wardrobe and we shall succumb with delight to this warm return of a trend inspired by the sixties and whose retro spirit enchants us. The shiest among us will adopt it first in pompoms or delicate fringed endings on a bag, and the more daring will go directly for the scarf or the sandals. Is suede about to become the new leather? Well, let´s take advantage of this summer to check it out!
Natural fabrics: linen, cotton, silk: the 2017 trend is definitely to consume in a responsible and respectful way and this “slow fashion” inspires us. This summer we feel like wearing noble and natural fabrics. We are fond of the pure, timeless yet sophisticated beauty of linen, the comfort of cotton and the subtle luxury of silk…
Lace and crochet: for a long time associated with our grand-mother´s old dresses and tablecloths, lace and crochet have been, for a few seasons already, a safe bet in the stars´ wardrobe. We find them in many forms: from the scarf to the bathing suit, or even the handbag or the long dress. Lace is the asset number one of a romantic look and crochet allows a sexy transparence that is now anything but old-fashioned!
Feathers: don´t be afraid, it´s not about restoring the boas of the Moulin Rouge dancers in your wardrobe, although it is no longer possible to ignore the outlining “feathers” trend of the upcoming spring summer 2017 season. Whether we choose an ethnic version of them on nice earrings or necklaces, feathers are a must-have asset in order to create a well-mastered subtle and aerial effect.
· Prints – trends spring summer 2017 ·
Dots, stars, stripes, animal prints… and flowers of course! The usual summer prints are present, as we could imagine. However, even if we won´t be surprised to find them in pastel and powder colours, it´s a pleasure to discover them in a much more flashy colours or even in a neon version. Let´s have a look at the prints that we´ll fall for this summer!
Stripes and dots: dots and stripes never really left our wardrobe, however they became more discreet. We love them in black, white or navy blue as a reminder of the famous Jean-Paul Gaultier´s striped jersey, or our childhood dresses… but this season we´ll also go for more coloured models to get a punchy and vibrant summer!
Geometric prints: the geometric pattern is so IN! Wether we choose a maxi oversized model to get a graphical and chic effect, or if we wear it as a combination of small forms to achieve an almost psychedelic effect, we love its seventies-like look. The most audacious among us will even combine different patterns and we love it!
Stars: fun, galactic and even somewhat kitsch, the stars print has got it all! We like it at night to highlight a dressed-up look and we love it during the day when applied as small touches on a blouse or on a scarf to enhance a more casual outfit.
Leopard and snake prints: modern women don´t fear a thing and this season again, let´s dare wearing animal prints and by playing with them, and draw power and determination. Leopard printed scarves and trendy reptile accessories enhance the simplest outfits by giving them a sexy wild twist we are in love with!
Flower prints: in all sectors, from fashion to interior design, flowers have been in the spotlight this season. Flashy, tropical or romantic: they are all over this summer! In an oversize, tapestry or softer pastel liberty-like version, this return to nature definitively makes us feel good.
· Trends: styles of the spring summer 2017 season ·
We saw it: the trend is about having fun this season: fashionistas overcome codes and dig into different styles of wardrobes in order to satisfy their desires and create unexpected combinations. Hats taken from the cowboys, Mexican pompoms, striped jerseys, palm trees prints or white trainers, there is no limit as long as one feels good!
Western trend: we told you, the cowboy hat is fashion asset this summer. Together with it the western trends amuses us and makes us dream of country music, camp fires, and infinite plains. We might doubt a second between suede boots, navajo prints and a denim shirt, but we´ll certainly end up going for all them since we love it so much…
The folk style: the folk trend is becoming clearer and makes us want to travel. This summer, we´ll just love composing, like it doesn´t seem like it, a look of who has been travelling around the globe. We easily mix up crochet, kimonos, fringes and talisman jewellery in order to achieve a bohemian look.
Tex-mex style: don´t know where to start? Can´t choose between folk, western, the return of suede and the denim craze? No worries: there is no need to choose when you can actually combine them all against a backdrop of Mexican ambience. Pompoms, fringes, denim, flounces, ethnic jewellery and shimmering colours… this summer, let´s try it all!
African, tribal, ethnic: everyone knows it: « l’Afrique c’est chic »! Plaited shopping bags, shimmering colours, pearls and wax-fabrics-inspired prints… this summer we´ll just love adopting an ethnic style with unique tribal hints…
Hip-hop style: 2016 was the year that consecrated the trainers. Every single brand, even the most luxurious ones like Chanel, Lanvin and Dior, adopted them, since they definitely add the perfect hip hop touch to our wardrobe. We combine them with a classic outfit and we even dare to wear them with a smart dress, like they do on the catwalks. We also go for the cap and a few bling bling pieces of jewellery because we just love the nostalgic return of the 90s
Shiny style: the shiny trend definitely gives women the opportunity to shine bright and not only at night time. Metallic disco-like touches, lurex, glitter and sequins, brilliance is taking over our outfits for a bright and complex-free summer.
Marine theme: adopting the marine style is like travelling before the holidays and letting ourselves flow without leaving our dressing room. We take out our timeless – yet never boring – striped jersey and we combine it with raw denim jeans or a nice straight skirt. We grab our plaited shopping bag decorated with shells and we accessorize it all with a red bandana scarf, to get a perfect colour combination.
