THE TREND REPORT

MODA PREDICTS: SUMMER SPRING 2017

With the New York shows just finished (and having spent the past week on the front lines), we're placing our bets on what the season's major themes and key pieces will be. As we head off to London, we've rounded up the trends sure to be everywhere by the close of the Paris runways. Here are the pieces you need to stay ahead of the curve.

THE MAJOR THEMES

VICTORIAN BOHO

GREAT WHITE

FEMININE UTILITY

THE MICRO TRENDS

GINGHAM

Though florals are the signature print of Spring, designers are suggesting you consider the check instead. Tome's ruffled version feels just as feminine and Adeam's gown proves it's a print that's not just for day.

FASHION STRIPES

ELEVATED DENIM

Cool Suiting, striped shorts and Cavalli's groovy embroidery means jeans are no longer just for weekends. If designer's experiments continue, consider it the time to banish a no-denim dress code.

BLACK MAGIC

Sheer fabrics and a dose of pointe d'esprit ensure these black dresses register a subtle (and enviable) sexiness signature to the French woman.
