Spring 2017 Trend Report: The New Ways to Wear Braids

By Souzan Michael

Date February 27, 2017

You can always count on braids to make a runway appearance at fashion week each season. Their versatility, aka their ability to quickly transform from schoolgirl staple to intricate works of art, has made them a staple (and editor favourite). That versatility was showcased time and time again on the spring 2017 runways, where designers employed braids to showcase everything from an ethereal softness to cool-girl toughness. Plaits really took a “come one, come all” approach this season.

Tiny braids were scattered all over for a bohemian vibe at Roberto Cavalli. At Creatures of Comfort, a braided ponytail was tucked under to create a simple loop, inspired by Frida Kahlo’s signature ‘do. At Christian Dior, Guido Palau created a beautiful high bun sitting atop four braids, for a playful look.

On the more ethereal side of things were Valentino and Alice+Olivia, who chose loose, fuzzy braids that were, above all else, pretty.
