Which 2017 Couture Trends Will You be Wearing?
The Spring 2017 Couture shows wrapped yesterday in Paris. Audiences were pared down, but the clothing was as spectacular as always. Couture fashion is a rarified world that only the privileged few get to experience. Custom made for individual customers, a couture dress can take months to create and cost hundreds of thousands. Couture runways are also labs of sorts, where designers have unconstrained avenues to explore a broad scope of creativity. And believe it or not, couture is relevant to how we dress.   Couture influences ready-to-wear fashion, which in turn influences mall brands. Which means that these trends will be popping up on the streets in 2017. So, what trends can you expect to see? Heres a quick run-down.  

Cinched at Chanel

Karl brought back the power suit, but he did it the Chanel way. Belted jackets with exaggerated silhouettes made definitive girl power statements. While they might not show up on Main St. any time soon, pared down versions might be stocked at a mall near you.  

Voluminous at Valentino

Volume was the name of the game at Valentino, but these weren't Mrs. Roper's mumus. Sheer full-coverage dresses moved as the models walked and were unconventionally revealing. Full silhouettes are eternally forgiving, so we're glad this trend is sticking around.  

Gridded at Givenchy

When it came to colors, Givenchy's small collection was all over the wheel so-to-speak. But the plaid full-length dresses were stand-outs. The flannel-inspired silk fabrics were exquisitely pleated and embellished, and the contrast of utilitarian patterns with formal silhouettes was captivating. Does this mean plaid for evening wear? If so, we're in.  

Embellished at Elie Saab

Elie Saab's frothy formal wear never disappoints. His gorgeously embellished frocks are sure to pop up on a few red carpets this awards season and beaded embellishments might be popping up in malls soon.  

Chiffon at Christian Dior

Christian Dior's garden themed show, replete with buzzing flies, was a trip back to the Victorian era. Translucent tops and dresses have long been our perennial go-tos. And modest silhouettes bring a prim and proper allure the look. So does this mean that we'll be wearing flowing plaid embellished chiffon blouses with belted waists this year? Actually, that sounds kind of pretty.
