II. Ruka's Favorite S/S 2017 Trends

I am in love with several trend items from this season. Each item in this section is hyperlinked to its original sales page.I wish it were possible to buy them all, haha! 

Some of these trends in this section are revivals of older ones with an updated spring/summer flair. Some of them are quite new. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do~

1) Pajama-style tops, dresses, and jackets

Maxi gowns in white or dusty blue are particularly popular! Other styles include flowy, ruffled blouses, vintage-style blouses, shirred tops, wide pants/culottes, and various accessories.
