Canadian Fashion Trends
Canadian stylists and designers emphasize versatility, functionality, and comfort and often use solid colors rather than patterns. Of course, climate is a factor that has a huge impact on fashion trends, especially low temperatures and long winters. As some pros in the industry note, it is more difficult to look fabulous during winter, and Canadian designers are trying hard to create fashionable clothes that are comfortable, warm, and eye-pleasing at the same time.
2017 Fashion Trends, Stripes, Bra Tops, and Layered Ruffles
This year many designers embrace yellow as the main color. They also make extensive use of bright stripes. Stripes are in primary colors such as yellow, black, white, orange, and gray. Some designers incorporate stripes in bright and bold colors such as green, blue, pink, and dark red while others alternate basic colors like red, beige, and black. Designers such as Sacai, Proenza Schoulder, Mulberry, Fendi, and Nina Ricci use stripes in their collections. Bra tops were trendy this spring, combined with a pair of high-waisted pants or a skirt. Ruffles arranged in several layers were also fashionable, whether on a dress, skirt, blouse, or top. Some outfits combine perfectly with long (over-the-knee) socks, including miniskirts, shorts, and dresses. Accessories are an important component of every outfit, and this year is no exception to the rule. Many designers incorporate large earrings in bright colors.
Shoes, from Platforms to Practical Sneakers and Bags
When it comes to shoe fashion, platforms are trendy again this year. Platforms come in different colors and designs, from pink and stripes to darker shades. Platforms combine well with light and bright clothing which is a perfect choice for the warm months. Sneakers are also fashionable, which is good news for women who feel uncomfortable wearing high heels. Sneakers come in bright and colorful patterns this year, with playful logos such as Hello Kitty. Sneakers are a great choice for a family picnic, a holiday, or a casual dinner with friends. Mules also made a comeback this year, and they come in a great variety of styles and designs. Designers showcase sneaker mules, flats, slingbacks, espadrilles, and other types. They are comfortable and versatile and are made of different fabrics and materials such as satin, cotton, leather, or a mixture of fabrics.
Oversized bags are fashionable again, and designers such as Marni, Balenciaga, Céline, Jacquemus, and Loewe showcase them in their 2017 collections.
Pajamas Are Back
To the surprise of many, pajama-style dressing has been a hit this year. Designers such as Alexander Wang, Prada, Acne Studios, Vionnet, Lanvin, and others incorporated pajama dressing in their collections. Bathrobes also make an appearance in this year’s collections and are perfect for a rainy day at home with a cup of tea and your favorite book.
Accessories to Complete Your Outfit
There are different styles for every taste, from eye-catching designs and bright colors to athleisure clothing, ruffled blouses, and a lot more. This makes it easier to change your spring wardrobe with an autumn one and your winter wardrobe with fashionable spring clothing. Whether you prefer bright colors or bold designs, it is always a good idea to accessorize. Use colorful, unique accessories such as necklaces, sunglasses, earrings, and scarves. Get creative, this year almost anything goes when it comes to colors, designs, and accessories. This makes it easier to mix, for example, orange and red, pink and yellow, purple and dark red. In general, this year is about bold designs and shades and making a powerful statement.
