As the seasons change, so will your wardrobe, from the dark, cozy colors and materials of winter, to the lighter, brighter patterns and textures of spring. So what’s on trend this spring? This year, it seems like designers are placing more emphasis on self-expression and individualism, unleashing bold looks that accentuate unique and even slightly unorthodox styles over typical spring trends. Read on for some cues as to what trends may be in play for spring.
- Spanish Influences
The runways of Spring Fashion Week were influenced by Spanish culture, emphasizing bold toreador-reds and patterns as well as flamenco-ruffles accenting skirts and dresses.
- The ’70s-Inspired Look
The ’70s vibe has also been strong on runways this year, with suede being one of the most popular fabrics of choice for pieces of all kinds including skirts, tops, dresses, and vests. Other popular looks inspired by the Decade of Disco include chiffon dresses, mixed prints and flared or flowy embellishments.
- The ’90s-Inspired Look
Another decade experiencing a recent resurgence of fashion popularity is the ’90s, the era when Kate Moss ruled the modeling circuit and Alanis Morissette’s music was the soundtrack of our lives. Go for a minimalistic, oversized jacket to ease back into this fashion trend.
- Cold Shoulders
The off-the-shoulder look has been a fashion fave for quite a while now, but designers are taking it one step further this season with bold shoulder-baring cutouts on dresses and tops. This subtle yet sexy detail also offers fantastic function as well, keeping everything breezy and more breathable.
- The Victorian Vibe
Victorian-era awesomeness appeared on runways the world over – think puffy sleeves, ruffles, neck-hugging collars, and of course, plenty of floral prints and patterns.
- Stripes, Stripes and More Stripes
Designers seem nearly obsessed with stripes this season, from stark and uniform to swirly and irregular.
- The Half-Moon Bag
Bucket bags were all the rage a season ago, but this spring, it’s all about the half-moon bag. The semi-circular shape works for crossbody, clutch and shoulder styles.
