The major make-up tends for this season – Big and Scattered eyebrows, Pink lipsticks, Red lipsticks, Nude make-up and Smokey eyes. Here, you can see how to combine them and look great.


I did notice that there were more of the straight skirts or rather fitted skirts on the spring and summer runways of this season. Here’s how to wear a few.


The weather might be inconsistent, like in some places its pretty cold in the mornings or afternoons and then its becomes so…………. warm. Am hoping these styles directly from some fashion designers spring and summer 2017 collection would help.


Super stylish ways to tie your Scarf. I guess everyone already knows is a huge trend for this season.

Coloured Frames


It’s was really so…… good to see a lot of white apparel on the spring and summer runway again.





The jeans trend for last season was really amazing. Here, the denim on denim is still a hit, military jeans dresses, dungaree, jeans short suit etc.




I use to think that wearing black during the spring and summer seasons was a bit too dark but the black trend for this season is really nice, elegant, beautiful and sexy. About Brandon, I had to add a bit of black paint to the dress, the slit is a bit dangerously too high but its a nice dress.



Black & White

I love the black and white collections from various designers this season, “Estilo absoluto”. Form christain dior, to Artem Klimchuk, Juanjo Oliva , Marissa Webb, Nina Ricci, Lanvin, Marchesa Notte, Dolce & Gabbana, etc.




Halter Neck

This style exposes most of the back, runs the front of the garment around the back of the neck and remains a ward drop must have for this season. Coming in many styles and variations, but the sexy low cut halter was not really that popular on the ss 2017 runways.





Hit the beach, mall, market, school, anywhere apart from the church (other religious places)and the office with the shorts for this season. A –line shorts, Bermuda shorts, harem shorts, running shorts (lace, sequin, silk and other beautiful materials) and short shorts are all fashionable for this season.




Colourblock and Stripes

For last season, we saw Salvatore Ferragamo, Vilshenko and Teresa Helbig models spotting this trend. Coming in a variety of colour combinations for this season. Worried about horizontal stripes, you can wear the vertical or diagonal ones.





Shoes For Spring & Summer 2017

Pointy toe

It makes you look stylish, sexy and gives you a sophisticated look. Fashion designers – Saint Laurent, Emanuel Ungaro, Anya Hindmarch, Richmond, Daizy Shely, Antonio Marras, Michael Costello, Jeremy Scott, Elena Burba, Elisabetta Franchi etc


One of the most comfortable shoes ever. Perfect for running around and getting a huge from those high heels.


Am not a fan of this style of shoe but if you like them, they are one of the must haves for this season. Charlotte Olympia etc


We are all very familiar with this. For me not a super comfy shoe but very good for the beach and some can be really very very beautiful like the one from Balmin.

Lace up/Tie -up

Off-White, Agnes B, Valentino, Dries Van Noten, Michael Kors Collection, Xuly Bet, Anna Sui, Richmond, Shiatzy Chen, Dsquared2, House Of Holland, Aquascutum, Erdem, Julien Macdonald etc.

Flat Form

Flat form sandals, sneakers, boots, trainers you name it. It gives you this retro chic look and it feels super comfortable as much as I know but it also would give you the relief you are looking for from those super high heel shoes. you can get an embellished one like 3.1 Phillip Lim showcased in his spring and summer 2017 collection or a colour block flat form shoe like the one from Dolce & Gabbana (ss 2017 collection). other fashion designers include Miu Miu, Erdem, Salvatore Ferragamo, Proenza Schouler, Chalayan, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, etc.



Thigh high, Knee length, calf or even ankle boots are going to be on the fashion scene this season, but I kind of prefer booties for the spring and summer season. Anyways, on the runways – Woven ankle boots from Spanish designer Juan Vidal, Abrahamsson, matching her boots with the cloth worn by her models, Sacai platform boots, and Christian Dior’s sneakers – like boots. Opening Ceremony, Alexander McQueen, Rodarte, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, etc.
