Models were parading around in colour everywhere at the New York Spring 2017 shows and if there was one trend that stood out from the pack, it was multicolor/rainbow stripes.
To get a head start on the spectrum of rainbow stripes that we are referring to, check out the vibrant and prismatic movement that was evident on the runways at the Spring 2017 shows in New York, that took place in September.
From Adam Selman to Altuzarra and Marc Jacobs, this trend was a story of fun, fantasy and emotion on the celebrity lined runways. This trend is not for the faint hearted and offers an alternative to the traditional uniform of black, white and natural hues. It serves as a reminder that Spring is in full swing and the Celsius is on the rise.
Although these collections won’t hit our stores until next Spring, why not be one step ahead of the fashion tribe and nail this trend by following these 3 key rules of suit, taken from the runway:
1. Shine bright like GUCCI and pair a bold bottom with an equally bold or colourful top.
2. Get printed like CHANEL by toning down the colour of stripe, but turning up the patterns within.
3. With the colours and patterns so bold and vibrant this Spring season, showing a bit of skin, like SALVATORE FERRAGAMO, will tone down the entire look, keeping it cool and relaxed, perfect for our summer.
