Every Spring 2017 Fashion Trend That It Girls Are Rocking

The sun’s shining and the mercury has (finally) started rising — it’s officially time to pack up your cold weather threads and usher your closet into the carefree days of summer. Chic beach bags, ballerina-inspired swimwear, and embroidered accessories are already on your radar, but if you’re in need of a few high-impact pieces to round out the rest of your warm weather wardrobe, look no further than the 19 wow-worthy picks below. From square-toed sandals to slip dresses and rainbow bright stripes, these Instababe-approved items are guaranteed to get you a spot on this summer’s best-dressed list.

1. Rainbow Stripes: It girls are taking a technicolor approach to their warm weather style with ultra-bright stripes in knit tees and twirl-worthy frocks at the center of their on- and off-duty ensembles.

2. One-Shoulder Everything: If your Insta feed is any indication, it won’t be long until one-shoulder tops, mini dresses, and rompers will be dominating your #OOTD circuit. Recreate model Rocky Barne’s low-key look with high-waisted cutoffs, minimalist gold statement earrings, and an of-the-moment bamboo bag.

3. Souped-Up Sunnies: Sunglasses don’t just protect your peepers — they drastically change the feel of your look. While a pair of dramatic cat eye glasses would play up Kendall Chase’s Hawaiian blouse’s retro-cool vibe, this quirky circular set makes the getup feel incredibly cutting edge.

4. Embroidered Denim: When it comes to warm-weather denim, flower power is in full effect for 2017. Exhibit A: Julie Sariñana’s flowery overshirt. Upgrade just-your-average cutoffs or a raw-edge denim skirt with botanical details and vibrant accessories for a flawless look every single time.

5. One-Pieces That Go Beyond the Beach: A swimsuit so snazzy that you can rock it anytime, anywhere? We’re so in. And so is María Bernad. The designer and stylist teamed a daring striped one-piece with paper-bag trousers and statement drop earrings for an enviable ensemble that can kick it night or day.

6. Square-Toed Sandals: Espadrilles and gladiators are a given when summer rolls around, but if you’re in the market for something with a bit more oomph, a pair of these sculptural sandals are where it’s at. Dress ’em up with a ruffle-trimmed frock for an upcoming wedding, or play it cool with embroidered denim and a cold-shoulder top.

7. Asymmetric Ruffle Midi SkirtsIntroducing the skirt of the season. With its ladylike silhouette and playful frills, it’s the perfect pick for date night and brainstorming sessions in the boardroom.

8. Gingham Girl: Gingham has undergone a major makeover for 2017, shedding its preppy rep and taking on a FROW-ready ‘tude. Test drive the trend with a flirty peplum top a la Lucy Williams, or pop on a pair of architectural ankle trousers for an upcoming interview.

9. LRD (Little Red Dress): ICYMI: Red is the color of the season. Skip the snooze-inducing LBD and opt instead for a sassy little red dress for your bestie’s bachelorette, a weekend getaway, or a leisurely lunch date by the sea.

10. Jaw-Dropping Jumpsuit: When it’s time to get fancy, do like globetrotter Julia Engel and skip the standard floral dress in favor of a sophisticated jumpsuit.

11. Minimalist Gold Statement Earrings: Leave it to It-girl Gala Gonzalez to make Mango earrings (no joke) look like a million bucks. Clean lines and oversized design lend these budget-friendly baubles a totally haute aesthetic that instantly elevates even the most basic threads.

12. Statement Sleeves: Fit for both weekend shenanigans and your girlboss routine (take style cues from Freddie Harrel and style them alongside a pair of airy culottes), trust us when we say they’ll inspire you to become a repeat outfit offender.

13. Circular Straw Bags: Look familiar? It should! Just about every fashionable femme — including art director Erica Choi — out there has this stunner slung over their arm. If you’re not digging the idea of rockin’ a full-blown beach bag on the regular, this snappy style offers a more low-key alternative.

14. Bright Hair Scarves: No beach day is complete without a wide-brim straw hat, but when it’s too hot to function and you need a way to jazz up a day-three ‘do, bright silk scarves are your new BFF. Form and function all rolled into one compact accessory — what’s not to love?

15. Off-the-Shoulder Frocks: Sun’s out, shoulders out. That’s the vibe we’re getting from street style stars such as Louise Roe, who looked ready for a waterfront fête in this breezy striped number.

16. Two-Piece Sets: Matching sets can get a bad rap, but Natalie Lim Suarez proves that coordinates can be straight-up fire when done right. Providing the perfect opportunity to show off a hint of sun-kissed skin, adding one of these dynamite duos to your wardrobe is guaranteed to score you more than a few high fives from the trendsetting set.

17. Classic White Tees: Spanish blogger Alexandra Pereira knows that you just can’t knock a closet classic. A basic white tee makes a cool companion to just about every item in your new season wardrobe — printed sundresses and crop tops included.

18. Slinky Slips: This ’90s-era essential isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The picture of effortless elegance, slip dresses were practically made for summertime after-hours action. The lightweight material and no-frills style just jibes with the season’s carefree vibes.

19. Basket Bags: Forget the Birkin Bag — this supremely sweet trend delivers just as much style without the hefty price tag. For a foolproof French girl-approved look, pair with high-waisted denim, square-toed mules, and a floral tie-front top.
