Spring Trends Styling Guide 2017


The Spring 2017 ramp was ablaze with beach inspired outfits.  I have collaborated with FashionMia.com to bring you this guide so that you can stay on top of the trends. FashionMia has a fantastic collection of Dresses for women, visit them to see for yourself.

Beach Stripes


Stripes inspired by beach towels and beach umbrellas. This means brights colors and several variations of stripes. You can try a pattern block, as seen in the picture above. The rule of thumb to remember here is:

  • If you are skinny: Wear horizontal stripes.
  • If you are plus sized: Wear vertical stripes
  • If you are moderate: Wear diagonal stripes.

Yellow Hues


Yellow is the color of the season. Take your pick from the various hues of yellow available in stores. You can mix and match other colors with your yellow clothing or just go monochrome. Try pairing a yellow dress with a string of pearls as seen in the picture above. Here’s a simple trick to help you pick the right shade:

  • If you have pale skin: Opt for pastel shades of yellow.
  • If you have tanned skin: Opt for deeper shades of yellow.



How do you give office wear a casual vibe? Take a cue from the hottest designs on the ramp of course!  I love this fun playsuit that takes the ‘work’ out of pinstripes and says ‘I’m in the mood for fun!’. Wear this to a barbecue or for a day out with the girls. This trend is only for bulkier body types. If you are skinny, pinstripes will not help.



The dress in the picture above is perfect for a spring cocktail party. The one-shoulder style is best for women with well toned arms. So the rectangle body type or the pear body type can carry this look off with ease.

FashionMia is having a sale on Black Skater Dresses , these are perfect for welcoming the spring season.

I am sure that this guide will help you pick the right spring trend for your body type. Let me know in the comments below which trend you tried out.
