So Hot Back Then

While the fashion folk spent February and early March trying very hard to look chic in sleet, I chronicled their every move #IRL from the comfort of my smart device.

Here's the skinny on real time trend tracking: The looks the fashion girls wore last month to the Fall/Winter 2017 Collections reflect the aesthetic (and weather) of those shows - not necessarily what you will be wearing in April.

The trends you'll see in stores this Spring were actually inspired by the Spring/Summer 2017 shows and what the fashion girls wore to fashion week in September 2016.

Spring 2017 Street Style Trend Report

Not to get all political, but unless you live off the grid (lucky), you know we are in the throws of a collective value crisis. It's also playing out in street fashion. Across style archetypes, trends were informed by 3 disparate moods - sporty, sexy or sweet.

SPORTY VIBES

Athleisure: Oversized Sweatshirt Dress

The no nonsense, no frills versions above are just one interpretation of this Athleisure trend. For a more sassy look, try a shorter length with distressed details like the Khloe Distressed Hoodie Sweatshirt Dress  from TOBI.

Editorial Eclectic: Vibrant Track Pants

Coming in at a heavyweight $1980, Gucci first showed its elevated track pant as part of the brand's Resort 2017 Collection. Do your wallet a solid and keep it real in this $60 pair by Adidas

Minimalist: Sorbet Sweatshirt

Even when she's feeling sporty in a muted sweatshirt you'll never see the ever-clean, ever-simple Minimalist girl sweat. This Spring, pair a taupe Everlane tunic sweatshirt (you get to pick the price) over a pleated midi skirt for a nod to norm core street style.

Sweet Vibes

The sweet ribbon details popping up on all manner of apparel may (or may not) have evolved as a sartorial response to this innocent (or not so) wardrobe selection by First Lady Melania Trump

MappCraft | Spring '17 Street Style Trends: Americana Gingham and Seersucker

Americana: Ruffled Gingham and Seersucker

Making Americana great again? For the 2nd time in two years, Parisian born Joseph Altuzarra sent a bevy of gingham  down his Spring 2017 runway. Italian designer MSGM reworked Southern staple seersucker with all manner of bows and ties. Assert your checks and balances in this $175 black gingham wrap shirt by MLM label.

Sexy Vibes

Full On Glam Corset

Remember back in January when women all over the planet marched in solidarity for equal rights? Well don't tell that to the Kardashian initiated corset trend. The notorious symbol of female suppression is having yet another fashion moment in Spring 2017. If you're into political subversion tactics, this reclaimed vintage leather open corset belt by ASOS would look really hot over a men's style dress shirt. 

MappCraft | Spring '17 Street Style Trends: Free Spirit Strappy Bralette

Free Spirit Strappy Bralette

I liken the sex appeal of this yoga inspired street wear trend to the sensual lines of dancer's pose rather than, you know, a dancer pole. Layer a open back tee over the seriously strappy Undone Bralette by Tobi and you're all set for festival season. 

MappCraft | Spring '17 Street Style Trends: Edgy Fishnets

Edgy Fishnets

Like the corset, the Kardashian clan didn't invent the fishnet tight. Kim simply Instagramed an innocent shot wearing a pair under unbuttoned jeans (top left) and promptly reignited the hosiery market. Styling tip: Dip a toe in the trend by layering this pair by TOBI under distressed boyfriend jeans.

Rough and Tough Like Leather

Like that bad ass trouble maker who gave you your first cigarette in 10th grade, some girls are just born with Edge. The rest of us go home smelling of smoke and get grounded for a week. 

Luckily, in 2017, you don't have to vape to embody the rebellious, rocker girl spirit of the Edgy Style Archetype. With just a few style tweaks we can all channel our inner Angelina, even if its only for a day. 

The Edgy Style Outfit Formula

After extensive Pinterest research, I have nailed down the 5 ingredient recipe for nailing Edgy Style like a bad ass.

A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, Edgy girls like their ankle boots broken in with pointy toes. Grommets and metal hardware earn extra cool points.  

Edgy Style Essential #2: Tight Black Pants
