Dear KNOMI readers, 

 

Spring/Summer 17 trends have got all of us so excited! Why? Well, it's inherently an upbeat season. From de-costruncted materials to the most saturated palettes, this season joy is oozing from every stitch and every seam. Want to be a punk princess in a bright fuchsia dress? You can. Because this season who's making the rules is YOU, so here's the 5 key trends you need to be wearing this summer

Kendall Jenner's favorite piece of clothing is going to be everywhere this summer. Bralettes are for ladies who love to wear underwear as outerwear. They'll be strappy, like the one the models wears on the Alexander Wang catwalk, printed and more structured.

Kitten heels have made a huge comeback this season, so whether you prefer a mule or a sling-back, a thick heel or a perfect point, it's time to cast those vertiginous stilettos at the back of your wardrobe and make way for the kitten heels. 

Pink, particularly of the fuchsia variety, flooded the SS17 catwalks. Layer it in different hues or color block by wearing a statement coat over statement separates or a dress. You can't go wrong as long as it's pink, pink, pink.

Shirts were a very big story on SS17 catwalks. From extra volume, long sleeves, wide sleeves, gathered cuffs, ruffles, every twist and turn you could possibly imagine on a shirt was seen on the catwalks. 

What can fit into one of these mini bags? Well, the essentials of course; lipstick, phone, credit card. If you still feel like you need more space to store your treasures, you can pair a mini bag to a slightly larger bag and still be on trend.
