Whichever shade you choose, you will most definitely an eye-catching, yet elegant, appearance, and most of all, it will brighten your day and mood.
P.S. If you are still not convinced about the super powers of yellow, let us remind you about the ton shades of yellow that made a big statement in Golden Globes red carpet this year. I mean, what else do you need?
She’s like a rainbow
Stripes never really go out of style but this season, they totally dominated the spring-summer runways parading in every color, shape, size and form you can imagine. Skinny hypnotic or bold, banker stripes or stripes from ripped beach umbrellas, graphic lines or vibrant, geometric prints, are full-on in spring-summer 2017 fashion trends, especially for those of you who are not into florals. Whether you want to go nautical, ’70s, or Technicolor, be stripy with separates or head-to-toe, there is no way you can go wrong. Pick the print that flatters most your silhouette and just walk the line.
2017 fashion meets utility maximization
The key to a great-looking wardrobe? Smart utility pieces that can be easily put together. Designers took the trend this season to the next level and made the utilitarian material work for all: street-chic utilitarianism. The new utility in spring-summer 2017 fashion trends consists of oversized cargo pockets, boxy shapes, cords and toggles, creating this season’s standout look, while adding coolness and sophistication to our everyday uniforms . After all, our workwear-inspired pieces deserve to be in vogue as well. Keep in mind that when we talk about utilitarianism this season, there’s more to the trend than the khaki textile. Relaxed shapes, flounces and pleats come also in great urban muted shades such as olive and beige, perfect picks for a stylish transition into the new season.

Turn up the volume: 80’s is back
It’s official. We are facing, for better or for worse, a full-on 80’s revival in SS 2017 fashion trends. The 80’s glam hit the 2017 spring-summer runways tornado, including everything from power suits and slouchy tailored trousers for office wear to off-the-shoulder looks, activewear and tons of ruffles. The huge 80’s trend, of course, goes hand-in-hand also with oversized, exaggerated shoulders: boxy, puffball or round with gentle curves, the retro-cut shoulders shapes remain supersized on suit jackets while they are getting along smashingly with mini skirts or cropped trousers, redefining contemporary femininity in terms of elegance.

Bralettes: The inside-out effect in SS 2017 fashion trends
Perfect for those who love underwear as outerwear, bralettes are getting their time in the spotlight this season. A cross between a crop top and a bra, bralettes scream athleisure and spring-summer all at once, while pair perfectly with high-waisted skirts, trousers and shorts, making for great statement outfits. They ‘ll be strappy, covered in floral prints and in luxe velvet textures, worn as a layering piece under sheer clothing or over shirts, dresses and t-shirts. Still, if you wish to wear bralette as an upper piece on its own, don’t hesitate at all: it’s a green light right now for you to show off your body in these pieces, proudly and in high fashion.
Oversized and loud just as we loved them the past couple years but with a more interesting twist, the trusty shirts are making a strong comeback in 2017 spring-summer fashion trends. This season, designers used their imagination with brilliance in order to reinvent the shirting trend and provide surprisingly fresh takes on an essential workwear piece. The button-down shirt gets deconstructed and hits back in sexy one-shouldered split-shirt tops, cropped really short with extra long sleeves, awesome wraparound shirts, off-the-shoulder with girly ruffles and the list goes on to satisfy even the most demanding ones. Our favorite, although it’s hard to choose would be pale blue and pinstriped shirt, inspired by menswear and deconstructed as a dress (yay!). That doesn’t mean of course we will stop eventually stealing clothes from his wardrobe.

Pink about it
Yes, we mean it. Even if generally you don’t belong to the pink camp, now it’s the time to reconsider. When we talk about spring-summer 2017 fashion trends, pink is indisputably having a huge moment. Candy pink, baby pink, bubblegum, raspberry and fuchsia are calling you this season to see fashion through rose-tinted glasses. Pink in ruffles, satin shorts, trench coats, cropped jackets and lace dresses dominated the SS 2017 runways and, we unapologetically admit, stole our hearts. From pastel pink to hot pink, choose the hue that suits your girly (or not) personality most and inject new shades into your spring wardrobe. Because, after all, let’s be honest, is there a sweeter way to welcome spring?

If you thought until now sleeves as a boring, with no surprises, element, of your clothing, well, that was literally until now. In SS 2017 fashion designers did their best to reinvent the classic sleeve into attention-grabbing pieces and they utterly nailed it. Ruffled, fluted, cropped, extra-long, cinched, balloon, cold-shoulder, off-the-shoulder, slit and puffed-up, just to name a few of the wonderfully detailed new season’s sleeves which are stealing the spotlight, giving you limitless options for fashion-edgy yet feminine looks. Pick your favorite sleeve trend, keep the rest of your look minimal and let your ultra-promising sleeves make effortlessly all the statement you need.

2016 has been, without any doubt, the year that hoodies dominated the luxury fashion world. Hold your horses ladies, sports luxe isn’t going anywhere this season as well. Quite the opposite, new athleisure in spring-summer 2017 trends is hitting back, enhanced with cute sporty separates such as color-block bodysuits, anoraks, and tracksuit crystal-embellished tops fully aligned with gowns and corsets. Yeap, this season, running leggings are spotted underneath floral ball gowns, toggles on evening dresses, and sport-inspired looks are paired with peep-toe sandals. New sporty chic shifts away from the full gym-oriented looks and provides us with a smart diversity, saving us from sportswear pitfalls. In other words, we really do love this trend because it makes us feel comfortable and stylish all at once but not every sport-inspired look needs to look like we are about to hit the gym before work.

2017 fashion is getting ruffled
So many ruffles, so little time. Will you be a frill seeker this season? If you are put-off by their 80’s iteration you should definitely look again, SS 2017 fashion trends leave no room for such hesitations. From delicate translucent lace frills to black leather ruffles and from romantic floral print to punky ruffles, ruffles were presented in unusual combinations and reigned the 2017 runways. Layers upon layers of ruffles brought us in mind the cascading effect, the sea waves sequence and here we go again, (day)dreaming of summer days. Ruffles, waves and summer. Beat that.
