“Come on, get happy!” It was the song that echoed through Michael Kors’s Spring 2017 show in New York. Backed by a six-piece band, Ru­fus Wain­wright ju­bi­lantly belted out the tune as mod­els bounced down the run­way in ’60s flo­ral prints and retro bathing suits. It was an all-over-chills ex­pe­ri­ence—one that set the tone for the rest of Fash­ion Month. The over­all mood this sar­to­rial sea­son is op­ti­mistic: Clothes are less se­ri­ous and the beauty mes­sages are full of joy and ease. And in a sign of the revo­lu­tion­ary times, un­abashedly fe­male artists ruled the run­ways: Dior new­bie Maria Grazia Chi­uri showed slo­gan tees stat­ing “We should all be fem­i­nists” and makeup artist Val Gar­land made waves with her whim­si­cal glit­ter-painted ears at Gi­ambat­tista Valli. We are hope­ful be­cause the spring shows pointed to one con­clu­sion: In fash­ion, at least, things are look­ing up. So read on for our best tips on how to wear these haute-happy trends.
