Spring 2017 Trend Report: Belts

Both myself and CF advising editor Lydia were coming of age where belted everything was a trend–cardigans, blazers, and skirts with a belt were a wardrobe staple for us for years. Lydia observed that we are “so there” for belts, trend-wise. We’re happy to see this trend come full circle, and evidently designers are too since this was one of the most popular looks we saw this season.

The Olsen twins have a serious problem with diversity–their lookbook above is no exception. They very rarely feature models of colour. At least they’re offering fetching obi-inspired belts.

The simplicity of a minimal black belt as seen above and below lends a surprising amount of definition and edge to an otherwise sweet dress.

Note that belts featured heavily in both of Miuccia Prada’s lines–Prada and Miu Miu.

Love the juxtaposition of the prim belt above with the undeniably glam lurex dress at Vanessa Seward above.

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Purple

Purple can be tough. While it’s a playful colour, it is not typically considered very professional. Finding colours to go with it can be a challenge at first, so it was surprising to see purples from lavender to rich plum shades all over the Spring 2017 runways! As always, all these looks are pulled from design houses helmed by women!

Then Susan suggested a new dress. I reminded her that the Queen was very happy wearing her 1939 wardrobe, so why shouldn’t I be? She said the Queen doesn’t need to impress strangers–but I do. I felt like a traitor to crown and country; no decent woman has new clothes–But I forgot that the moment I saw myself in the mirror. My first new dress in four years, and such a dress! It is the exact colour of a ripe peach and falls in lovely folds when I move. The saleslady said it had “Gallic Chic” and I would too, if I bought it. So I did. New shoes are going to have to wait, since I spent almost a year’s worth of clothing coupons on the dress.
