Although NYC weather is not completely spring-like at the moment, with the month of May right around the corner, our wardrobes have officially transitioned from heavy coats to flowy dresses. 

We spotted a couple remarkable trends on the runways in September as designers showcased their Spring/Summer ’17 collection. Notable trends went from exaggerated stripes and various shades of pink to jumpsuits and head-to-toe floral motifs. Additionally, top brands seemed to all agree on one thing: Bigger is better.

This spring and summer, designs are all about being playful with large silhouettes and exaggerated patterns. The sun will bring originality in terms of wardrobe and accessories with key players in the fashion industry betting on flashy colors as well as underwear becoming outerwear.
