Our Fav Five Trends for Spring 2017
New season means new trends, and believe me there are LOTS of new trends to get you by this SS17. Seeing as we are based in Dundee, we won’t get too ahead of ourselves and focus mainly on the spring part of this season- Summer we are dreaming of you, but really we have barely made it into light jacket weather up here in Sunny Scotland.
We have picked our favourite five trends for this season which you can also shop here at Mandi Candi.
1.T H I N K P I N K
From fuchsia to a pastel- the future is pink, and we are loving it.
We had designers back to back, from Valentino to Celine, showcasing draped midi dresses in a show stopping pink. While Bora Aksu went for a romantic ruffle in a pastel shade. Even Topshop Unique got involved with an amazing colour pop jacket.
We are seriously loving the pastel pinks for spring with romantic laces and frills. A favourite of ours is definitely the pleated trousers and bralet- oh so girly, and we are not-so-secretly loving it!!
2. S T R O N G S T R I P E S
Horizontal, vertical, bold stripes, pin stripes- you name them, we love ‘em. Stripes were all over the SS17 catwalks in many beautiful forms. Think private school tailoring and seaside chic, (can we please make this a thing.) We particularly loved Mulberry’s pinstripes, and those striped boots are an absolute dream.
Following this, we have added embroidery (another trend we are loving) to our pinstripes. Perfect for spring- you can wear as a slouchy shirt dress or pair with jeans on those chilly days.
3.B O L D B R A L E T S
For those with a love of underwear as outerwear- you are in luck, bralets are sticking around for another season. As seen on the Alexander Wang and Victoria Beckham catwalks- bralets have a twist for 2017 with straps, textures and prints.
One of the most popular trends we are seeing is a bralet under sheer dresses and blouses.
We are stocked full of mesh, sheer and bralets- just in time for you to rock this trend for spring.
4. S L O G A N T E E S
Slogan Tees have been on the radar for a while now, however, the biggest change we have noticed is that the funny, light hearted slogans from winter have been traded in for strong, statement slogans for spring.
Dior made the most headlines with this tee- which we LOVE by the way.
We are ALL about empowering women here at Mandi Candi and it looks like our customers are too with our best-selling Girl Power tee flying off the shelves! We have them back in store and online so grab yours now!
5. S T A T E M E N T S L E E V E S
Two words all you need to hear this spring: Flute. Sleeves.
The bigger the better, I recently wore a dress with sleeves so large it would make Dumbledore proud. Yes it’s difficult to eat your soup with, yes it isn’t the most practical thing- but my god you will look fabulous.
Think ruched, oversized, bell sleeve- the more dramatic the better.
