I rounded up my favorite Spring 2017 trends, straight from the fashion week runways. I don’t consider myself to be on the cutting edge of fashion, I’m more of a classic clothes kind of gal…but that doesn’t mean I let current trends go unnoticed. My SPRING 2017 wardrobe includes each of the trends noted – inspired by the runways but carefully chosen to fit my personal style. Here are some of my favorite picks to keep your closet looking fresh this season (click on items above to SHOP)!

MULES

Mules are everywhere this spring! All your favorite brands are offering their take on backless shoes. Heels, flats, sneakers – you name it. Swap out your normal shoes for a pair of mules to give your outfit an instant update.

RAW HEMS

The raw hem has been around for a few seasons now but continues to gain momentum. There is something chic and effortless about this unfinished style. The ankle length is also perfect for pairing with sandals, booties, mules or a chunky heel! If you’re looking for the latest in the frayed hem world, go for a step-up (asymmetrical) hem.

TRENCH COATS

A trench coat is a classic closet staple and this season you’ll see trench’s in all different styles, fabrics and silhouettes. Whether you prefer the classic trench or the updated version – both are trending right now and are the perfect layer for spring.

UPDATED OXFORDS

Button up shirts are my go-to any day of the week. Lucky for me, my favorite classic shirts are getting an updated design. The fabrics, colors and patterns remain classic, but the styles are getting more trendy. Be on the lookout for off the shoulder, asymmetric and cut-out styles.

BOLD STRIPES

Stripes are always in style, but spring 2017 is taking them to the next level. Look for bold, colorful and seaside stripes (a personal favorite). Incorporate these striped patterns into your wardrobe – clothing, shoes or accessories. You can even try mixing your striped pieces together…and remember, the bolder the better!
