There is another resurgence in the fashion world: masculinity and oversize style are replaced by elegance and femininity. The symbol of these changes became fashionable skirts that in the spring-summer 2017 season are a mix of elegance, impeccable style and unusual designer decisions.
Of course the famous catwalks were not covered only by romance. Those who prefer the classic grunge style will certainly be able to choose their favorite skirt. But let’s take them one at a time and begin with the skirt length. Designers give us complete freedom in choosing the perfect skirt length: from mini to maxi, as well as the elegant midi length (just below the knee to mid-calf).
It is difficult to say who he likes mini skirts more: ladies who want to show off long and elegant legs or men, who like to see little more than is allowed. However, in 2017 spring-summer season, mini skirts have a special place in any fashionista’s wardrobe.
Very short length is prohibited because fashionable is femininity and not vulgarity. Proofs are collections Veronique Leroy, Dolce & Gabbana, Dsquared2. The mini skirts on models were hiding what has to be hidden and in order to have a less vulgar look, the outfit was completed with coats, jackets and long sleeved blouses.
Certainly, mini skirts harmonize beautifully with summer tops, particularly if these are executed in the same style. Such mini sets were presented in Blumarine, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang collections.
Maxi skirt has no plans to leave the fashion catwalks and in summer it has become lighter and brighter. Maxi length was differently represented of each designer. Thus, floor length skirts are available in any pattern and color: from fluffy designs in bright shades to pencil skirts and designs with asymmetrical hems and high slits.
Maxi skirt can have both an extreme length to the ground, ankle length and with different hem length: short in the front and long at the back.
Maxi skirt is very universal and looks ideal in combination with tops, sweaters and long, oversize jackets, blouses and easy fit shirts.
Perhaps there is a length that would not be right for next season. On par with the extreme length and ultra mini, midi skirts are in fashion, below the knee but above the ankle.
The cut may be absolutely different: fluffy with many folds, tight fitted on the entire length, slim fit in the thigh area and bulky in the bottom (godet skirt). Designers have loved midi skirt because it harmonizes with virtually any piece of clothing and footwear.
Sun skirts, bell skirts and A shaped skirts are the most famous designs in the 2017 spring-summer season. Designers have used this cut because of its universality. Flared skirt harmonizes even with office jackets and shirts.
If Michael Kors, Veronique Leroy, Vivienne Tam shows us office looks with flared skirts then Rochas, Blumarine, Giambattista Valli opted for light and bright looks. Some designers have gone further, proposing to combine romantic flared skirts with grunge style clothing.
Regardless of the style the flared skirt will be matched with, it must necessarily be made of loose, lightweight fabrics in pastel or intense range colors. The skirt’s length can be absolutely different: from ultra mini to maxi options.
This cut is a must-have of any season. To make it even more memorable designers propose to wear pencil skirts in unusual shades, with inserted pockets, frills and bold slits.
One of the spring-summer 2017 season trends became pencil skirt with slit at the front. And the bigger it is the better. Such patterns can be found in collections of Trussardi, Marissa Webb, Marco de Vincenzo, Altuzarra.
Also, designers have relied on intense juicy colors, unusual shapes and fabrics. Now you can freely wear a pencil skirt not only at work but also in everyday life as its modern design and warm colors are just perfect for the overall state of mind.
On the first position, together with the classic cut, can be noted wrap skirts. Although this complicated cut does not fit every woman, the right choice will make you look more feminine than the usual pencil skirt.
Midi or maxi wrap skirts are also very actual in the warm season of the year 2017. Current are also classic designs in the warm range of colors as well as skirts in bright summer shades, in Vichy plaid, with accents and unusual frills, fringes and ruffles.
Skirts with Slits
An intriguing slit is another detail that embellishes skirts this season. The most current are skirts to the knees or below with slit in front or on the sides. Similar patterns can be seen in Trussardi, Chanel, Marco de Vincenzo collections.
Prabal Gurung has provided several slits simultaneously, resembling fringes that do not leave fashion catwalks three consecutive seasons. Skirt with slits, including deep, can be worn even at the office, on condition that it be accompanied by sober clothes in classic business style.
It all started with one shoulder tops and gradually asymmetry descended on skirts. Thus, asymmetrical skirts firmly occupied positions in the list of fashion trends for spring-summer season 2017.
If previously leather skirts were considered expensive clothing, now, now these can become a complete office wardrobe. Especially because designers used eco leather or special fabrics that visually do not differ from genuine leather and does not require any special care.
The classic black color fashion did not go anywhere. Marissa Webb, Salvatore Ferragamo, Emanuel Ungaro showed us classic black leather skirts, matching totally the new spring-summer 2017 trends.
If black seems not just appropriate for spring wardrobe, we recommend you Jeremy Scott , Fay and Trussardi collections. These brands have introduced colored leather skirts with modern-cut.
Phillip Lim presented a complete skirts line with imitation of reptile leather, executed in shades characteristic of these wonderful reptiles.
In the fashion world, masculinity is again replaced by femininity, therefore, frills, ruffles and lace could not miss the new collections of the season. Frills decorate not only evening skirts to the ground, but also more universal designs, adapted for everyday use.
We can say without exaggeration that frills have embellished a lot if fashion shows, including those from Alberta Ferretti, Altuzarra, Dsquared2, Emanuel Ungaro, Mary Katrantzou, Zimmermann. And this is not the complete list of those who included in its collections skirts decorated with all sorts of playful frills and ruffles.
Skirts with Fringes
In spring-summer 2017 season fringes are again fashionable, giving the look femininity and making it look light and comfy. Fringe can serve as special element decorating skirt’s hem and edges, as well as basic outfit.
Skirts with fringe look ideal with casual shirts and sweaters and with office jackets and blouses, loafers and shoes with flat soles, as well as high heeled shoes.
Stylish Geometric Elements
Skirts with geometric elements are represented in spring-summer 2017 season not by stripes and diamonds, but by trapezoid elements. Moreover, designers aren’t using the mini and maxi length this time opting for slightly above or below the knee length.
It must be said that on fashion catwalks largely prevailed retro style trapeze skirts and in order to make the skirt not look monotonous and boring, designers added modern elements.
Pleated skirts are back in the spotlight. Only this time, they are presented in midi and maxi length, ultra mini designs with smooth pleats are no longer current.
To create a characteristic pleat will suit any type of fabric, but for the summer, we recommend fabrics such as chiffon, silk and other light fabrics. Also, together with ordinary fabrics, fashionable are also pleated skirts with metallic luster.
As you already noticed, metallic textured fabrics are again very popular. Gold, metallic silver-colored and skirts with effect holographic were seen in collections in various patterns: from ultra mini to midi and impressive maxi.
Despite first impressions, the metal skirt is very universal, suitable for both festive events and for daily wear, including at the office.
A real challenge of the coming season is to teach you to wear transparent skirts without appearing vulgar at the same time. Organza, lace, tulle, and chiffon occupied the leading positions among the fashion fabrics for spring-summer season.
Classic cut gives you the possibility to wear transparent skirt even in a semi-official event. To look attractive and not vulgar, designers have fitted shorts and thick covers specifically for this purpose. So only you decide what has to be seen and what has to be hidden.
We must mention that all the current trends in spring-summer 2017 season, namely transparency, soft silhouettes, frills, asymmetry, metallic effect, etc. have come to skirts as well. All this is directed towards creating feminine looks that are entirely missing harsh details and masculinity.
