Spring Fashion A-Z Ideas 2017

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one going through the whole alphabet quickly in my mind when I try to figure out the order of some letters (cause that happens you know). So why not go full on repitition for the alphabet as well as chatting about some spring fashion (C what I did there? #sorrynotsorry)? Here’s Spring Fashion A-Z Ideas 2017: (and folks, use the slideshows for more inspiration!)

Spring Fashion A-Z Ideas 2017 + Spring Trends 2017 | The Fashion Folks

Fashion A-Z Ideas 2017

A – Adapt your style after the spring colors. Go for pastels and popping shades such as pink, baby blue, sun yellow etc. It will definitely brighten up the mood. Try white or light grey if you’re an all black outfit person at heart.

B – Bandanas going for the neck or hair is a chic detail for spring. I also say, level up and go for a refined scarf in a fun color or print. Mixing and matching at its best.

C – Culottes might not have the same it-factor this year but no one cares. They’re still stylish, wearable and a perfect item for the transition period that spring is.

D – Denim is one of the most beloved fabrics for spring, and with all right. Go for a chic denim jacket, a statement pair of jeans or a classic denim skirt. And oh, denim on denim is a thing.

E – Eco fashion for spring gets more and more popular. See if your favorite brand does a special eco line this year. Sustainable life and fashion at its best!

F – Flower power is real folks and it’s kind of mandatory to work the floral prints for spring. Try to go subtle, go for floral accessories or try a new print of flowers if you want to keep it interesting.

G – Glasses as in sunglasses are ofc a spring must. Classic, statement or subtle is your choice. But do remember that sunnies have the power to take an outfit to another level, so ofc you should head statement if you ask me. 

H – Heels are often not only stylish (and painful) but an extra help this year when working the wide pants, the midi skirts or statement jeans. They’ll add some height to the outfit which will balance out the “heavy” fabric.

I – Instagram is inevitably a great source for fashion inspiration. But be sure to think outside the box (app) and also find the unique style icons. Insta has a tendency to go a bit homogenous. Dare to dress after your own wish to express yourself through the creativity and individuality fashion comes with.

J – Jeans are also major for spring. Go for distressed jeans, jeans with an uneven hem or mom jeans if you want to be extra trendy.

K – Klein blue is a color if often comes back to and there are several reasons behind. But for spring though, the rich shade is perfect to highlight, contrast and intensify other colors of spring; as pastels and poppings ones (hot pink, orange etc). Go bold, go for it!

L – Leather as in leather skirts are a chic contrast to all the preppy vibes and pretty colors spring comes with. You can also show some skin and let your legs see the sun again etc etc.

M – Monochromatic outfits. No. Need. To. Say. Anything. More. (just read this)

N – Nautical fashion is a fashion classic that’s always a bit extra popular each spring. Go for the navy blue, the stripes, the trench and the white pants. Better being safe than sorry!

O – Ornament or perhaps embroidery is still trending and trending high. Embroidery for your jeans, blouse or jacket? Yes please.

P – Prints in general are also popular (and easy) to do for spring. Don’t forget the colorful stripes or animal prints. Way to go when adding life to the outfit!

Q – Quiet is the last thing fashion is these days. T-shirts with texts of statement or prints are also popular for spring. Read the post here.

R – Ruffles (full post here) are another way of adding life and movement to any outfit. Go for the blouse, skirt, shoes or more subtle as in hem. Match the preppy vibes with contrasting fabrics such as fake leather, vinyl or fake suede.

S – Shoes for spring this year are the mules, sporty sneakers, shoes with a ruffle detail or OTK boots. Trendy but also stylish as fudge.

T – Trench coats never gets as much love as they do every spring. Embrace the nautical vibes or go classic in beige. Try a colorful one to keep it popping!

U – Underneath your clothes is not the corset or crop top. Nope, they’re placed on the clothes this year. As corset top over your tee or a crop top over your shirt. Trend alert here.

V – Vinyl is one of the biggest spring trends 2017. Go for vinyl skirt or pants and contrast it with the nautical style or pretty blouses of statement.

W – Waists and hips should be marked with a belt this spring. Perhaps not the Gucci belt everyone are rocking, but a belt with a fun and stylish statement. Add a belt to your jeans, enhance the silhouette of your dress or go for the belt with a skirt.

X – Xtra (lol, made it easy for me) stylish will you surely be if you add a chic bag to your outfit. Go for a colorful one or one in a fun shape and size. Bags are a perfect way to add stylish details and elevate your outfit. 

Y – Yoga fashion or activewear in general have definitely grown in popularity the past years. For spring, dare to go for the colorful clothes in fun prints. It’s an extra dose of energy, inevitably.

Z – Zebra stripes (what else) are perhaps making a comeback. They’ve been popping up here and there as a part of the revival of the 1980s fashion. So you might want to take my word for it and be a step ahead? (just saying).

Folks! Drop a letter of your choice and what you’ll embrace from the spring fashion A-Z ideas! Xx

10 Ideas For Spring Beauty 2017

Time for part two of this post, 30 Ideas For Spring Fashion 2017! Today’s focus is spring beauty 2017 with some random ideas as well as beauty trends. Here are 10 ideas for spring: (and oh, check the slideshows for more inspo!)

Spring Beauty 2017

Colorful Manicure – French manicure has for long been associated with fresh nails. So what’s a better idea than changing the regular white tip to a colorful one and go fresh for spring? Try a hot pink, a baby blue or a green shade?

Gorgeous Glow – Another thing that’s associated with spring is glowing skin. If you don’t want to go full heavy with contour, just go for strobing (only highlighter that is) and highlight your cheekbones and nose tip. Go for a highlight in a bronzy shade to get a natural spring touch.

Red lips – Of course red lips are a perfect go-to for spring. Mainly because they work so well with spring trends such as stripes, florals and bright colors. Go for a warmer and lighter shade if you want to keep it summer-ish.

Pops of the 80s – The 1980s are trending (okey, we all know that now) and so is pops of colors in your makeup game. So what’s a better combination than going for some colorful spots in 1980s colors? Try hot pink or mint blue for the eyes and a bright purple for the lips. Or go more subtle as below!

White nails – All white nails are way too underrated. They are chic, goes to anything and makes the nails looks longer. Go for a white monochrome look for your nails this spring and you’ll be quite the trendy one.

Fake Freckles – Another sign of spring and summer is the increasing of freckles. I’m one of those people that get freckles from the sun, and I love it. I have no idea why people cover theirs up, freckles are gorgeous! If you don’t have freckles and want to try the look, take an eyebrow pen (that’s slightly darker than your skin) and do small and irregular dots!

Metallic lips – Metallic makeup is another trend for spring 2017 and one way to go about it is by the lips. Go for a shimmery shade (perhaps champagne, rose or golden?) and embrace the light 90s vibe. No need to go for glitter if you don’t feel like it, you can still keep the metallic game lowkey! A highlighter with some metallic shimmer is another way to do it.

Blushy Blush – Blush might not be the hottest makeup feature at the moment, but with the classic shade of blush being a major trend in fashion – why not go for a blush look this spring? Adding some color to the cheeks is a lovely way of giving some life to your winter tired face. (just see below!)

Pastel shades – Pastels are the gems of this season and lights up the mood perfectly. Talking about the 1960s last week, I’ve been more and more obsessed with the idea of going for pastel shades. Like baby blue with a heavy eyeliner or bright yellow? Or bubble pink lips?

Orange lips – Lips in shades of bright red or intense orange are also underrated. Orange is such a flattering color on many and a great change from the regular red. With a warm undertone it also embraces the bronzy shades and goes well with freckles too.

30 Ideas For Spring Fashion 2017

Folks! Spring is approaching and what’s a better way of embracing it than through the act of fashion? I know you like lists and so do I, so let’s keep it short and concise today. From color choices to ideas of print and accessories. Some classics that are more or less compulsory for spring but also details that are highly relevant for spring fashion 2017!

Spring Fashion 2017

    1. Pastels – There’s no better time to embrace pastels than during spring and summer. The colors are sweet, flower-like and easy to pull off. Try the pastels with each other, white or denim if you want to keep the color shade bright. How about a baby pink blouse and flared jeans?
    2. Floral prints – I don’t even need to refer to Miranda Priestly here, we know that florals are returning each season. They’re pretty, versatile and there’s a floral print for everyone. Match it with stripes or keep it pulled together by matching the colors of the flowers.
    3. Monochrome white -I don’t know what’s spring if not a bright monochrome look. Especially white is a gorgeous one to do (with red lips). Make it pop with a colorful clutch too!
    4. Navy Stripes – Nautical vibes are also a matter of spring to many. To do this the best way, embrace the navy stripes (white/navy blue combo). 
    5. Blouses – We are certainly living in a time of blouses. Go for one with statement sleeves to keep it stylish for 2017. The light fabric works perfectly for spring.
    6. Trench coats – Not only are they classic, they’re also a chic jacket option for spring. The light jacket is a great one for layering as well as keeping things classic.
    7. Layers – The never ending issue of spring is either being dressed too hot or too cold. Well, go for a layered look and take off a layer as the day passes by. Easy as one two three.
    8. Pea Green – In case you’ve missed, pea green is the color of the year and inevitably a great color for spring. Read here on how to match it.
    9. Distressed jeans – People might have been wearing them through fall and winter too, but they’re obviously a great choice for spring too. Keep the contrast between edgy and preppy by adding a blazer.
    10. Print mix – Go for a statement by mixing prints this year. Clothes in prints are common for spring, which makes your job easier. Pair stripes with florals or dots with squares. Contrasts folks!
    1. Pastel color + Jewel tones – So here’s a fashion secret for you: The pastel colors you love exist in the same color but darker for fall. They’re our beloved jewel tones. Try therefore to match bright green with emerald green. Baby pink with burgundy or baby blue with navy. It’s a chic one!
    2. Fedora hat – A hat for spring is not only stylish but also a great addition for a detailed look. A fedora hat will surely do that work and save you from bad hair days. 
    3. Monochrome – Don’t only go for a white monochrome look but embrace monochrome in all shades (skip black though, you can push yourself further than that). Try bright grey, all pink or all navy?
    4. Distressed/uneven hemline – A trend for spring fashion 2017 is the uneven denim hemline. I talked about it in this post! Style it with your flats or feels to keep it matchy. 
    5. Sneakers – Congrats folks, spring is the season of sneakers. Go for white, colorful or printed ones to keep the spring feeling intact. Obviously a chic choice to do with denim as well as A-line dresses.
    6. Blush pink – Another trend for spring fashion 2017 is the color blush pink. It’s sweet, easy to style and flattering. Read more here.
    7. Culottes – These beloved pants were a hit last season and you can definitely stick with them this year too! Go for flowy, prints, colors or statement. Match with heels or flats to keep the look balanced.
    8. Jumpsuit – If you don’t own a jumpsuit yet, spring is where you should buy one. They’re perfect for spring weather as they’re light yet covering. Go for a print or color you like and I’m sure you have yourself a new favorite piece.
    9. Velvet details – Some people think that velvet is not a fabric for spring as it’s quite heavy. I don’t agree tbh, but if you’re uncertain: Go for velvet details instead. Velvet shoes, bags, scarves and chokers. It keeps the luxury of the fabric without its heavy feeling.
    10. Print + Colors – It’s easy to go for a neutral color (black, grey, nude etc), when going for print. But pick up a color from your print and wear the matching clothing piece in that shade. It keeps it balanced yet colorful.
  1. Blue/white striped blouse – The classic blouse/shirt is a wardrobe staple to many and a fresh choice for spring as well. Go classic with denim or more fashion with culottes.
  2. Popping colors – Spring is where you embrace colors full on. Dare to go for neon yellow, orange, bright red or any other color with intensity. They work so well with bright denim, other popping colors as well as white.
  3. Fishnet tights – The fishnet tights are also fashionable for spring fashion 2017. Try them with denim as suggested here, or why not under a midi coat?
  4. Statement sunnies – Folks, the time is here. The time for going full on statement with your sunnies. Don’t stop at your classic Ray Bans but go for a fun frame, an exaggerated shape or anything beyond the regular selection.
  5. Parisian Chic – Paris and spring is a perfect and romantic combination, so no wonder that Parisian chic feels like the perfect embodiment of spring. You know the drill, go for denim, stripes, beige coats and hats and you’re pretty Parisian looking!
  6. Patent Leather – Also a big trend for spring 2017, read here. Balance the fabric with light fabrics in pieces as blouses, shirts, basic tees!
  7. Denim on Denim – Feels like I’ve talked about it way too much these past weeks but it’s a fierce match, okey? Go for the same shade if you dare or contrast the top and bottom if you’re insecure. Break the look off with a bag or hat in a popping color and you’ll be good to go.
  8. Colorful nails – Perhaps not a fashion thing but I’ll sneak it in here anyways. Go for colorful nails as in pastels, popping colors or white to achieve the spring vibe. Even though I love dark nails, the colorful ones are more matchy to spring fashion.
  9. Crop tops – Crop tops aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Match crop tops this season over your shirt, like here, or go for high waisted skirts or pants to keep it stylish. Why not one in a fun color or print?
  10. Midi skirts – Spring and it’s time to embrace the midi skirts again. Take your favorites and match with colorful tops and layers. I have one in red I like to wear with white tops as well as pink and orange. You know, keeping the life colorful!

All you need to know about the trends Spring 2017

Folks! I planned on doing a major trend report on fashion and beauty trends Spring 2017. But as I began writing I realized that I’ve already summed up the Spring trends one, two and three times. So in case you’ve missed, here is a round up on the trends Spring 2017 and links to previous posts!

Trends Spring 2017. Fashion trends and Beauty trends. Summary of the fashion weeks | The Fashion Folks

Trends Spring 2017

Another year and another set of trends. 2016 wasn’t only the year the world and humanity  seemed more divided than before. Last year also saw a change within fashion and beauty. Where style preferences and influencers seemed to drift further apart. The decreasing eclecticity  in 2016 is continuing into the new year and the trends we’ll embrace in the months ahead.

As society keeps moving forward to new technology and innovations, fashion keeps looking back at old decades and past trends. The recycling of fashion, as well as beauty, in 2017 will be centered to the 1980s with influences of rock, denim and bigger is better. The idea of recycling is also reflected in the color company Pantone’s choice of color for 2017; greenery. Greenery as in green in general and pea green in specific. The motivation behind is centered to the idea of green as a color of nature but also a shade for tranquility and new beginnings!

Fashion Trends

  • Stripes are more classic than trendy, but if staying classic can be trendy – that’s the melody for Spring. Stripes in any shape are accepted, but favorably in colors and more as in color blocking than identical. Doing stripes with anything denim and a bold lip is pretty much the one look you need to care about Spring 2017 if you ask me.
  • 1980s life is on! It’s been a gradual process and embracement from designers, but the rock decade is here to stay for a few months at least. You’re free to choose from whatever genre you like. From leather (rock), denim (functional) or oversized (office wear). Don’t forget to add awkward colors as in neon or intense pastels!
  • Flower power as in literal flower power of the late 1960s and early 1970s is back. By literal I mean that the flowers should be in a retro shape and touch. The 1970s are becoming more popular so it’s only logical that the flower prints get their fair share too. See Chloé’s collection here if you’re uncertain.
  • Tees with prints/text are back (have they ever been out of fashion though?). Make a statement this Spring by a text/quote you stand by. A graphic tee is a fun way of mixing things up but also a great way of declaring what you feel without needing to waste time on it. I have a crop top sweater with the words “why?” and I love to use it whenever I’m moody. (As in, why are you even talking to me right now?)

Beauty

  • Smokey eyes? No smudgy eyes are the way this year. The eyes should look a bit messy and you can create this look by one shadow and an eyeliner. The smudgy eyes comes with a touch of the 1980s and doing the look in black or dark brown is a hit!
  • Make life pop with pops of colors. The no makeup makeup look is paired with color this year. Do the face as natural as possible and add a pop of color wherever you prefer. May it be a colorful eyeshadow, lipstick or cheeks. The touch of color should be intense and statement making. Red and pink are extra favorable, but touches of orange are trendy too.
  • The 1980s leaves it marks on the beauty side of life too. Neon is embraced in makeup, where your ordinary eyeshadow should be changed to a touch of neon color. If you want to keep it safe, do your regular black eyeliner in a neon color, where pink is a favorite to do. You can also do it as Fendi, and create a color blocking pattern on the eyelids. Lips in statement colors as in mint blue and yellow can also work with a neon touch.
  • Braids are more of style than trends this year as braids in any shape works. You can take braids bohemian by making them loose or you can go full on business preppy and make them tight and defined. Braids in buns are highlighted and so are french braids. Add a braid to make sure that you’re on the trendy beauty side 2017.
