This summer, fashion returns to the soft, feminine woman. To my delight, the colors, style lines, shapes, and intricate details display utmost femininity in an unmistakable way. From gingham to voluminous sleeves, SS17 looks depart from the masculine, androgynous looks we’ve grown accustomed to over the past few years.
Dress, Forever 21 (short version sold out, see maxi version here)
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be the first to admit I love a great leather jacket, pair of Converse and Levis. To me, these are staples. However, there is something inherently refreshing about the trends this season. To me, it symbolizes that society finally recognizes that women do not need to dress like men in order to be perceived as equals. In short, give that power suit a much needed break. It’s time to feel sexy again!
Even better, there’s no need to break the bank in order to adopt these trends. Unfortunately, the dress pictured above was sold out by the time I could get to this post (only a few days!). However, I will share what’s in my shopping cart for this season (everything is under $100!)
What are your favorite trends this season?
