I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for fall. Yes, I can skip summer altogether if I may, well, besides my birthday, ha! So, yes, I’m super excited about fall and that excitement grew the moment I saw these Johanna Ortiz looks from her fall 2017 collection, gorgeous!

Ruffles, delicate fabrics, cool denim pieces and floral prints will still be in this fall.
If you take a look at any of the big online magazines, it seems clear that fashion is picking up steam. This makes sense, of course, given that the spring and summer are the months during which you can show the world your sense of style and flare given the respite from the cold.
Necklines abound this time of the year, and pieces of designer crystal jewellery really stand out. They can be snazzy, sophisticated and eye-catching; especially when they’re well-matched with the style you’ve chosen for the day. Let’s take a look at a handful of fashionable pieces that are making the run this season and, seemingly, beyond.
1.Striped Wear – Pants, Shirts, Etc
You may have noticed a lot more stripes around these days – in pants, tops, even hats. Women of all the lovely shapes and sizes are donning wear that used to be reserved for the taller person. Stripes, of course, can be horizontal or vertical, although the latter appears to be more popular.
You’ve probably heard it in some fashion article or snippet in the past: “shorter people should avoid stripes so as not to draw too much attention to their lack of height.” Well, ladies and gentlemen alike are bucking the trend. Long, striped, flowing bell-bottoms are all the rage in some circles; so much that fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue, Roopal Patel, has remarked on their staying power.
2. Shoes! Always Shoes!
Shoes can never be out of style, of course – but certain types are definitely grabbing the runways more than others this year. In 2017, the mule seems to have taken off, as ladies sport all varieties. There’s the heeled mule, low block mule and even the esoteric espadrille mule. The materials are just as varied as the type, and you can find them in satin canvas and velvet. If your sense of style is especially-spirited, then check out the huge range of embroidery made specifically for this low-slung heel.
3. Phone Case or Bag?
Why make the choice at all? Given the huge popularity of the iPhone and other companies seeking to capture a piece of the market, elaborate It bags have sprung up that are about the size of a large Smartphone. They’re marketed as an alternative to the immortal tote bag, and as a way to cut down on what you have to carry. It’s so popular that even Louis Vuitton made a phone case for the Spring 2017 fashion season.
4. Earrings and Jewellery
Due to their unique ability to personalize a particular look, it should come as no surprise that jewellery is still all the rage. You will hardly see a fashion statement that isn’t complete with earrings of various lengths, designs and inspirations – from the always pleasant silver/gold hoop, to nearly shoulder-length creations by risque artisans such as Delpozo and Proenza Schouler.
5. T-Shirts with Conscious Slogans
Making a statement is what fashion is all about, and what better, more unambiguous way is there to make them than with a tee that says it all. This season, you’ll see proclamations about equality in all of its wonderful forms, animal rights, etc. It’s fashion with a message, and that has more staying power than any other kind.
