Fashion Forecast: Polo Gala Embraces 2017 Haute Couture Trends

Date:    Thursday, June 29, 2017

Nothing could be more Mexican than the super bright colors and head-to-toe florals that have marched across runways into 2017 with increasing confidence and boldness, from daytime to black tie!  Other strong themes this year, from mix-and-match bohemian trends to tribal inspired headwear and footwear are all perfect entrée for your ensemble for Gala la Bamba!

The black tie affair gives ample fuel for fashionistas and attendees to express with their most inspired evening wear yet.

Mexican folk art embroideries have transcended to couture on fine linens and silks, and its pompoms and silk tassels are playful adornments for your hair to your feet!  In a land of endless summer, the combination of fabrics, colors, metals and jewels creates a festive summer tapestry that rises to the occasion.

Hopefully, these few tips will leave you feeling confident and intrigued to challenge your creativity.

Bouquets, lace, center-parted smooth up-does & dark rouge lips accentuated an empowered femininity on runways at some of this season's most influential shows. Color embraced pattern, on black background for Latin flavor and after-six style.  Makeup is dramatic and gorgeous, accentuating eyes, brows and lips, and red carpet hairstyles neatly disappeared beneath whimsical headdresses.  Don't be afraid to channel your inner Frida.  Whether it's up or down, embrace your born-given waves and curls, or take it the extra mile by adding a flower corona - we're all royalty tonight!

Be bold with statement piece accessories, tassel earrings, and fabulously embroidered clutches, and don't forget a pair of drop dead stilettos. This year, chunky rings and oversized rough cut stones are a throwback to the early civilizations of the Americas.  

There can be no wrong because at the end of the night all we really care about is who has the best boom-boom!

The bottom line: Just have fun with it - we already know you're fabulous! We can't wait to see you and your outfits at this year’s Gala la Bamba on Friday, August 4. See you there!
