As the temperatures rise, fashion girls everywhere will be wondering how to transition a crisp and covered up work wardrobe into the warmer days ahead. For Spring 2017, try taking your sartorial cues from the season’s hottest catwalks. Whether you want to experiment with colour in a more creative atmosphere or stick to classic pieces in a conservative office setting, the runways offer plenty of inspiration. Here are three winning ways to incorporate Spring 2017 trends into your wear to wear looks.
For timeless sophistication, there’s nothing quite like a black flared dress to complete your nine to five wardrobe. With its scoop neckline, three quarter sleeves and flirty hem, this basic black Christian Dior is a versatile design. To achieve a similar off-runway look, try this A.L.C. Samara Bell Sleeve Dress, $315. The delicate bell sleeves and above-the-knee hemline are perfectly chic, while the solid and simple silhouette leaves you with accessorizing potential.
With the collared shirtdress making waves for Spring 2017, Prabal Gurung’s take on the trend is both feminine and practical. We are liking the sharp pointed collar, defined waistline and slightly puffed sleeves on this flawless ivory frock. Meanwhile, this C/MEO COLLECTIVE White Shirt Dress, $228 fits the bill for the corporate gal look, with its ladylike long sleeves and chic sash belt.
Although everyday black and white frocks can certainly complete your work wardrobe, there’s nothing like a splash of florals. Whether you have an after hours company function or formal industry event, a printed flowery dress can instantly light up the room. One only needs to glance at the Zac Posen runway, where a sleeveless pastel yellow and white dress caused a sensation. To get the look, try this Le Château Floral Print Stretch Poplin Shift Dress, $100. The pale yellow colour, slight cut-out accents and barely there cap sleeves are suitable for spring, and also appropriate for business.
