The Spring/Summer 2017 runway shows wrapped up last fall and left many fashionistas excited about the upcoming season. I got a pretty good idea of what I will be wearing throughout spring and summer 2017. I noticed that some of the trends that dominated spring 2016 such as off-the-shoulder styles are still relevant. However, for Spring 2017, the dominant trends will be plenty of seventies prints, fold-over-waist, Khaki, skimpy bra tops, sleeve slits, one-shoulder-out pieces, shocking pink, flower power, shades of yellow and ruffle mania. Below are my top trends that emerged at NYFW. I know which ones I am excited to shop—how about you?
