Fashion Trends To Expect This Spring
“I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature’s rebirth” Edward Giobbi
Just like this large garden in spring, fashion also gives a sense of joy and hope. As soon as a new season threatens to peek around the corner we are waiting, in anticipation, flipping through the magazines to see what the fashion trends will be. Well, why shouldn’t we also “blossom” this spring!
A New Season
Getting into a new favourite outfit, uplifts your spirit and gives your day a kick start. That is why love the change of season, for a breath of fresh air and vibrancy.
Geoffrey B. Charlesworth said that “spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.”
New York Fashion Week is the gardener in this instance and we, who will be wearing this clothes will be the composers, we are the ones who will make these beautiful creations work. These are the top 10 looks from New York Fashion Week
Also known as the “Cold Shoulder”. If you love your collarbone, flaunt it this spring! Tops and dresses are sporting this slashed neck look, which is pretty elegant and will show that you are already welcoming summer and saying ‘bring on the heat!’
Got an old shirt in your closet? Now could be the time to dig it out and start customizing. This spring the shirt has been revamped, with slashes and embellishments. So unleash your creative side and rock it!
Orange is the new black
No, not the TV show. We have heard loads of these phrases but, orange has taken over the runway! Whether you use it as a splash to brighten your outfit, or as a head to toe look, this is one way to wake up your closet.
Don’t we just love a beach feeling/nautical design? Wearing something like this in spring is the perfect prelude to sail into the summer. From stripes to rope, this spring we beach it up a bit!
Stripes can be tiny magicians to your body; they make you look taller, skinnier and so fun and daring! There was a huge variety shown on the runway, which just means if you like stripes, this spring is your time to shine.
Finally, we can get away with no ironing, perfect for busy bees! This crumpled up trend has been all over New York and I totally love it. No need for ironing and you’ll still look fabulous.
Yes, all of us do want to go to bed comfortable, but you can also go to bed in style and of course silk! But have you ever wanted to go out in your pajamas just because they are so comfortable? Well, designers from Calvin Klein who presented us with a long silk dress to Misha Nonoo <http://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/spring-2016-ready-to-wear/nonoo> with bright pajama-style suiting, you can be as comfortable on the street while looking very fashion forward!
Kick The Bucket
Thank goodness for hats I’d say, especially on a bad hair day! Well this spring ‘bucket hats’ will be to your rescue! It’s a throwback trend, and has back with avengence.
The moment I hear fringe I immediately think Cowboys! Well don’t worry, this new trend will make you look like anything but a Cowboy. Using the fringe in a fresh way on the hems, these designers really showed us how stylish a fringe can be.
Are you picturing girly and frilly… fortunately not This year ruffles are anything but that. A bit more slouchy feeling but still show stopping. So give them a try, especially if you want to give your bust a bit of a boost.
What About Shoes?
“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” I completely agree with Marilyn Monroe. Shoes are a girl’s best friend, okay, after diamonds. Nonetheless shoes compliments any outfit and it can really make or break an outfit.
For spring 2016 there is an enormous variety of shoes that will make you feel like you are walking on sunshine. Here are some of our favorites:
- The silver Streak trend, for the ones who love to put a bit of bling in your outfit.
- Sneaker lovers are also not forgotten, because there is a sneaker for every taste.
- There is a range of shoes called the “future is now”, for a more futuristic feel in shoes.
- For a Mexican feel, the brand, “Do the Huarache” gives a variety of traditional Mexican shoes with a splash of high fashion
- Guess what? Flatforms are also all the rage this season!
Be sure to go digging in your cupboard before you jump online, you might just have a pair of long forgotten shoes that will be fit for this season.
When Spring Arrives
According to Archibald MacLeish, Spring has many American faces. There are some cities that will watch it come and go in a day, while others will enjoy it hanging around for a while. We will see it as drawn blinds in Louisiana, long winds in Wyoming, and the shade of Elms and Maples in New England.
But Spring style can be worn in any State to bring the season home no matter where you are. Of course, fashion trends move as quickly as the wind, and so there are just a guideline of how you can spruce up your closet.
So enjoy the spring, smell the flowers, and feel the warmth creeping in and of course don’t forget to have fun with the fabulous fashion!
