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.The Haute Couture #SpringSummer17 collection by #PierpaoloPiccioli was filled with purity and lightness that together created a magical sense of effortlessness.

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.

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.
In her first Dior couture show, for Spring-Summer 2017, #MariaGraziaChiuri wanted to honor Monsieur Dior by reclaiming his love for gardens and flowers. "Hymne aux Muguets" and "Souvenir de Printemps" are two of the light and charming evening looks from her delicately-hued collection. After all, as Monsieur Dior said, "After women, flowers are the most divine creations". © @Morgan_Odonovan
