It’s never too early to start thinking about what your Spring wardrobe is going to look like this year. If you are anything like me and are obsessed with Instagram, you would have already been searching and probably know that this coming season is all about making your outfits look like geometrical sculptures; meaning that the bigger and puffier your sleeves are, the better. So if you are into this type of style, along with gingham patterned everything, pinstripes, knots, extra-long sleeves, and wrap shirts, then it is definitely a good time to shop.
Thanks to Instagram, I have recently discovered the amazing Korean born designer, Rejina Pyo, and in my opinion, her designs embody what SS17 is all about. Her ‘Victorian-esque with a modern twist’ clothes give the everyday woman a chance to dress simple yet elegant. And this is what Pyo tries to push forward with her collections. It is every woman’s dream, to be able to wear chic clothes without feeling uncomfortable, and look feminine but yet powerful. In an interview with Vogue, Pyo explained exactly what her aesthetics are about: “I find it beautiful when something doesn’t look like it’s trying too hard but has surprising elements that excite you. It feels exactly like you need to offer something that people didn’t even realise they wanted! Without a crystal ball, I can only follow my gut instinct” (7 Feb, 2017). This is exactly what spring will be about.
Of course, not all of us can afford to make such investments so we have to look for alternatives. In terms of high street shops, ZARA never fails to disappoint. The Spanish brand’s new collection is very similar to Pyo’s designs in terms of the frills, the knots, and the simplicity. Block colours, especially different shades of fuchsias and pinks (which we all love), will be the one to look out for. Style these blouses with a nice pair of mum jeans and some nice pastel coloured mules and you are ready to set the trend.
