If you’re anything like us, you’re already feeling pretty excited about wearing the new collections for Spring/Summer 2016 – and the good news is that there are some stunning new trends this year. Actually, we say this year, but when isn’t there something to get excited about? Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the top fashion trends for 2016…
The slip dress
The slip dress is back – and it’s looking sexier than ever. Celine, Saint Laurent, Burberry Prosum and Emilio Pucci were just some of the leading designers to embrace this 90s trend – and we have to say that we are really loving some of the new twists on this design classic.
Colour, colour and more colour
Spring/summer 2016 is all about vibrant colours – and the more you can fit into one outfit, the better. We really love some of the unique new designs from the likes of Gucci and Christopher Kane. These ladies dresses are just the perfect way to get noticed during the new season.
Ruffles are set to be one of the top fashion trends for the season, and we have to say that we are really feeling this elegant and eye-catching look. It’s just so flattering! If you’re a fan too, check out the key pieces from Michael Kors and Roberto Cavalli.
Stripes were literally everywhere on the SS16 runways, making them one of the top fashion trends of the season like women’s dresses. Just check out some of the amazing pieces from the likes of Prada, Dolce and Gabbana and Missoni. Stripes are definitely in – and they are a sure-fire way to add a dash of visual drama to your look.
Nothing screams spring/summer quite like a floral pattern – and the good news is that there are some truly stunning designs around this year. From classic English country garden-inspired patterns through to edgy modern twists, you’re sure to find something that fits your style. We are particular fans of floral pieces from Dolce and Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Gucci, whilst we love the bold colour choices from Michael Kors. You can’t go wrong, really.
The right accessory can truly bring your look together – and for SS16 one of the key pieces is the humble backpack. As well as being supremely practical, the designs from the likes of Burberry and Alexander Wang are both super stylish and luxurious.
If you’re looking for a trend that’s just perfect for the evening, look no further than this season’s sparkle of choice: sequins. Eye-catching, elegant and glamorous, sequin covered designs were seen everywhere in the new SS16 collections. For the best designs, look in the direction of Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Gucci and Loewe.
