From the Runway to Miami: NYFWWhile New York City may be home to our nation’s largest fashion shows, Miami still holds a place in our heart as the most stylish city. We were enamored by designer collections that hit the spring/summer 2017 runways—especially the ones with the flair of the 305.
We’re taking you to each major fashion week, starting with New York and ending in Paris, to highlight our favorite spring and summer looks. This week, we’ve rounded up the most prominent, Miami-approved trends from the catwalk for your wearing pleasure.
YellowThey don’t call Florida the Sunshine State for nothing. Bright yellows will be a major player in spring/summer 2017 closets. From chartreuse to mustard, bold yellows sauntered down the runways of New York Fashion Week in a variety of flashy fabrics.

Peephole SilhouettesWith heat waves that last all year long, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Miamians aren’t afraid to show a little extra skin. Designers tastefully incorporated playful cut-outs and peephole silhouettes into their transitional spring pieces. From Proenza Schouler to BOSS, designers knew how to show skin in a subtle, stylish way.

Ultra-feminine ruffles made waves as the catwalk turned into a sea of flouncy, ornate dresses and skirts. Designers like Michael Kors opted for bright blooming dresses, which left a soft and sophisticated aura on the stage. On the contrary, J. Crew’s paired ruffled appointments with menswear-style tops for a jaw-dropping juxtaposition.

The Slip-Off Shoulder StrapThis past summer was all about the cold shoulder look. While we walked down Miami’s beaches in off-the-shoulder tops, we were only preparing for next year’s big trend. Slightly unkempt with an air of cool, asymmetrical shoulder straps are just as chic as they are relaxed. Versatile to say the least, the laidback straps can be dressed down on a loose-fitting jumper or glammed up with luxe fabrics.

Flowing Floral PrintsIt wouldn’t be a proper spring wardrobe without delicate florals. This year, designers introduced detailed paisley prints and psychedelic wild flowers onto lightweight fabrics. The loose-fitting floral maxis are perfect for a walk down Collins or even a yacht ride on the bay. Maxis flow as freely as the spirit of our beautiful city, so we believe every Miami woman needs at least one in her ready-to-wear repertoire.
