With spring quickly approaching, it is time to turn your attention to the season’s upcoming fashion trends, with some of the hottest ones having been spotted at New York Fashion Week. From energetic stripes to feminine florals, here is all you need to know if you are looking to update your wardrobe for spring 2017.

Energetic Stripes
Stripes often tend to make a comeback in the spring, but rather than featuring delicate pastels, 2017 is all about bold, vibrant and energetic stripes. Just about every color was seen in stripe form on the runways, with graphic primary colors being the most popular, especially when anchored down with a base of black.

80’s Glam
Garments inspired by 80’s glam were also extremely prevalent on the runways of New York Fashion Week, with everything from metallic fabrics to graphic t-shirts. Leather jackets, mini skirts and 80’s inspired sneakers are also set to be popular this season, and can easily be styled with items that you already own to give your look more of a modern edge.

Feminine Florals
Florals are another print that are always a hit in the spring, and while this may not be anything new, this season’s florals are bright, bold and fresh. From Tanya Taylor to Tibi, florals appeared on just about everything on the runways, from long-tiered skirts to ruffled jumpsuits, resulting in many show-stopping outfits.

Ruffles are beautifully feminine, and made a huge appearance at New York Fashion Week, with just about every runway show featuring a certain amount of flounce. However, while some of these looks may have seemed slightly over-the-top, other designers managed to perfectly balance out their ruffles with some tailored sleekness, such as the one-shouldered dress from J. Crew, which also featured stripes, and the voluminous skirt from Zimmerman.

Key Colors
There are always certain colors that dominate each season, and, as seen at New York Fashion Week, the shades that you can expect to see more of this spring are nude colors, such as hazelnut and khaki, as well as soft, pretty shades, with pink being especially popular. However, neon shades have also made a comeback, as seen on the runways of DKNY, Phillip Lim, Jason Wu and so many more, from bright blues to neon greens, promising to add a bright pop of color to any outfit.

Statement Earrings
Statement jewelry has been all the rage for a while, but this trend has usually focused on items such as rings and necklaces, with earrings being neglected. However, New York Fashion Week turned this all around with their incredible selection of statement earrings. From the neon pink shoulder-grazing shapes from Delpozo to the large double hoops from Hellessy, these pieces not only make quite the statement, but also beautifully frame the face and make it the focal point of your look.

Fashion trends are always coming and going, with each season bringing with it new and exciting looks. While some of these trends may be common in the spring, they were all presented in fresh and innovative ways at New York Fashion Week, exuding a huge amount of creativity and style.
