Spring Trend ~ It’s About Sleeves

March 31st, 2017


dsc_6943When summer starts to come to an end in Austin, the anticipation of heading back to New York is always a welcome and exciting time come September.  The planning for our 15th consecutive season covering the runway shows is not only an honor for our Fashionably Austin crew to be a part of the international press corps but it’s such a thrill to see amazing fashion from behind the lens of my camera.

New York Fashion week has been experiencing lots of changes starting a few seasons ago, with the first being several designers, including Rebecca Minkoff and Tom Ford,  opting to show current season collections in order to press sales for their immediate buyer.  No more waiting for six months to be reminded what was shown on the runway.  While the collections presented for Spring 2017, I am sure more designers will follow suit in the next couple of seasons.  And won’t that make it difficult to report on upcoming trends!!  Time will play this one out.


Reem Acra

Now on to my favorite trend from the runways for Spring 2017, sleeve treatments!  Nearly every designer’s collection
created their take on interesting sleeves.   From long, to short, sheer to structured, sleeve treatments it will be a fun accent to your wardrobe.


Jenny Packham

My personal favorites were slit long sleeves with soft bow accents at Erin Fetherston and at Reem Acra beautifully decorated floral treatments cascaded down structured jackets and sheer long sleeves.  At Jenny Peckham shoulders were covered in soft, retro feeling 70’s inspired flounce on a one-shouldered gown.

Have fun with this amazing trend and please share what sleeve treatment you like most!  September will roll around soon enough and we will be there to share the latest trends for next season.

Hi! I’m Cheryl!

          You know the saying, age has its benefits and I am living proof that experience, drive, faith and a little bit of luck will take you places you never imagined.  I can certainly say that being over 50 has been an exciting time for me. I am Austin's first television fashion reporter starting back in 1999 for News 8 Austin and have continued to report on fashion ever since. My sister website, Fashionably Austin continues to be the only all-fashion online fashion outlet allowing me to feature local events, designers and all things Austin Fashion!  I have had fun incorporating my love of fashion, photography, videography, writing, producing and all things creative at all levels of my business. Let's connect, share and have fun during the best decade of our lives!! Cheryl
