Get your make-up pencils in order ’cause color on the eyes is a ‘thing’ again. A revival of a eighties make-up trend! Bright colored eye make-up was all over the national and international runways. From rainbow stripes to crafty eyeliner lines on, above and next to the eyes; a good eye shadow palette seems a necessity this season. Just click through our gallery of backstage beauty images of Haider Ackermann, Martin Margiela, MaxMara and No21 and you know what’s up. Time to get arty on the eyes. Rainbow down b*tches!

It’s officially Summer in the City! Short skirts, off shoulders tops, leather sandals and the sunniest sunnies are all you need this week. And when it comes to the latter, there’s lots of options to choose from. From teeny tiny to XL deluxe. And while every Instagram queen seems to be rocking a pair of white colored eye cat sunnies we spotted a different trend out on the streets. That of the colored glasses. Yellow, orange or red, let’s give the world a touch of color and make the city look even sunnier than it already is. Are you wearing your vintage Ray Bans, your floral encrusted Dolce & Gabbanas or perhaps a brand new sparkly pair of Gucci sunglasses? Sun’s out, sunnies out! Have a good one!

Summer Streetwear Trend 2017: Bold colors, statement suits

Give a girl a statement suit and she can conquer the world. No seriously a bold suit goes a long way. It work for business meetings, family dinners, fashion parties and just about everything in between. And as shoulders are turning into fashion’s focus point the statement suit of this summer has quite a lot to offer. It is bright colored, oversized and preferably has some kind of accentuated shoulder (pointy, strong, rounded). Something the influencers and streetstyle stars in our gallery already knew months ago. See how Carolina, Doina, Rebecca and Leonore worked this trend during the latest fashion week season. And yes, your hems will get dirty and distroyed, but it’s all part of the oversized, overstated look. Now it’s up to you to decide which sorbet shade you’re going to rock in the upcoming months.

Summer Streetwear Trend 2017: PJ Party

The pajama inspired look just doesn’t seem to get old. After having worked our satin PJ’s in evert major fashion capital we’re slowly moving over to robe dressing. Whether velvet, satin or kimono inspired wearing a robe outdoors is now officially the chicest thing. A trend obviously inspired by the catwalk collections of Haider Ackermann, Lanvin and Burberry. Wear it with some chunky sandals or a good pair of denim jeans to give it that contemporary, urban feel. And of course don’t forget the it-bag, the designer sunnies and that extra cool out of bed hair style. The robe keeps you warm and makes it easy to hide those extra pounds you’d love to shed. Yet another extremely comfy summer trend coming your way. Get up, have breakfast and go!

Summer Streetwear Trend 2017: Side Stripes

Athleisure is all the rage these days. So your wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of bold trainers, colored hoodies, bomber jackets and statement joggers. Especially the latter have proved to be extremely fashionable and versatile. I mean who would have thought in 2017 you’d be able to attend a meeting in a pair of black and red striped jogging pants? As you can see in our gallery above the styling can make or break the outfit. But the trick is to start thinking of joggers as a neat pair of pleated pants. So mix them up with a deconstructed blouse and some adidas sneakers or pair them with your Gucci (it)-sweater and some good leather loafers. Easy does it and going out was never this comfy.

SS2017 Trend: Harder, Better, Stronger (shoulders)

May 3, 2017 by

We admit some of the looks in our gallery above aren’t the most ‘likeable’ at first sight. Yet, you know how it works in fashion, give a trend a month or six and everyone in the fashion scene has completely accepted it. Give it a year (or two) and the mass market is fully embracing it. So right about now, when it comes to the strong shoulder trend, we’re at the first base; fashion professionals have accepted it and are transmitting the message to a wider audience. A few fashion forward influencers have been spotted working those Balenciaga jackets and one shouldered Saint Laurent dresses. They’re the daredevils who don’t care if a trench coat gives them a less feminine figure or a certain Frankenstein appeal. In the name of fashion they’re rocking those XL shoulders as if the eighties never existed. A woman in a suit (Off white, Céline) never looked this strong and disco dancing dressing (Saint Laurent) was never this fierce and outspoken. The silhouette’s focus point is moving up! From waist to shoulders. Are you ready to step up your shoulder game? Harder, better, faster!

SS2017 Trend: (Patent) Pink Party

When Valentino red turn pink you know something’s up. Bright pink is becoming the #1 color for this summer. And we can not think of a reason not to join this pink party. From Balenciaga to Vetements; the most fashion forward looks in bright pink are making headlights on the streets, in the fashion magazines and, of course, on Instagram. And might you think bright pink is daring enough, think again. Bright patent pink (as seen at Bottega Veneta) is even a better option. Not to mention the satin pink spotted at Ralph Lauren. And let’s not forget the red/pink combination both Sportmax and Valentino introduced. The in between shade of raspberry red spotted at Kenzo, Hermes and Michael Kors might be your best bet. The ultimate summer shade that works beautifully combined with mint green (just look at one of the Céline runway looks). Show some color, give them something to talk about and make it a (sweet) summer to remember!

SS2017 Trend: Pleated, Folded & Draped

Ruffles are dominating this year’s summer look, no doubt about it. They’re everywhere, on blouses, T-shirts, sweaters, skirts and even ruffled pants are making their way onto the streets. It seems like there’s no denying this trend. Yet for those who like things a little less romantic we’ve got some back-up options. In stead of ruffles you can also opt for pleats as origami-inspired pieces are quite the statement makers too. So how about a pleated skirt (as seen at Vionnet, Off White and Victoria Beckham)? Or would you prefer them on your top (as Jil Sander and Marni introduced)? And how about a little drape effect (shown by Sportmax and Loewe)? A perfect classic/dramatic detail to make your outfit just a little more interesting. And the ultimate excuse to leave your iron in your closet. Pleats please! 1,2,3, origami!

SS2017 Trend: Underwear = Outerwear (again)

Why don’t you.. turn your outfit inside out? Wearing your underwear as outerwear is (once again) the coolest game changer. Wear your bras and bralettes over  your blouses and dresses and you’re right on trend. Or rather, leave the house in nothing more than a sheer body, a transparent slipdress or a triangle bra (midriff on display). Probably the easiest way to make a statement this summer. At least, that’s how Victoria Beckham, Céline, Alberta Ferretti and Alexander Wang feel about it. Not to mention Dries van Noten, Miu Miu and Giambattista Valli’s version of this daring trend. So, are you ready to show some skin or even #freethatnipple? Oeh la la.. lingerie!
