Summer 2017 – Fashion Trends & Wish List

Gingham Trend

Not all fashion trends have to come from the runway. However, as soon as a style steps off a few runways, it seems to pop up everywhere. First you see it all over magazines, then your Instagram feed and finally all over the streets. Then you’ll find yourself on the search for the perfect piece. Therefore, I thought it would be fitting to do a post on this year’s summer trends, especially now that the weather in Toronto is finally starting to feel like summer. Well, the 80’s are back and so is utilitarian chic. And here are some of my other favourites for this summer! (Disclaimer: please note that these pictures below are not my own and taken from the respectable websites)

GINGHAM STYLE op op op op op (sorry I had to??) 

I never really gave gingham much thought before until this summer. First, it kind of reminded me of a picnic table. Then, it reminded me of food, then the sun, then finally just plain old fun. And led me wishing the following pieces.

Gingham Trend

I’m totally obsessed with this pink gingham top! It’s off the shoulder in a chic way and I love the detailing at the back. And it was such an amazing price (under $25!) so I just had to buy it. Click on the image or here to be redirected to the store!

RUFFLE some feather with this trend

Ruffles ruled the runways for summer 2017, after the whole peplum craze and I couldn’t be happier. When put in the right place, they’re very flattering and feminine. Here are some of my faves! 

Ruffle Trend

This bikini from Rosegal is adorable and extremely affordable. The off the shoulder ruffle detail and the palm tree print is a definitely yes for me. Click here.

can’t think of a pun, but STRIPES are in 

Last but not least, stripes! I know it seems like stripes have been trendy for a long time. It’s one of those patterns that are classic and are here to stay. However, this summer’s stripe trend is all about being over the top; from head to toe. Therefore, it seems that the more stripes you have on, the trendier you are.

I absolutely love this striped skater dress from Boohoo. It’s classy and flattering. Due to the vertical lines on the skirt, it will make you look extra tall and skinny. Furthermore, the horizontal lines on the top portion is flattering to the chest area. Click here
