Spring 2016 Trends

We think it’s fair to say everyone is ready for spring.  Lighter fabrics, brighter colors, shoes that don’t confine our toes. These are just a few of the things we are looking forward to enjoying.  Each season we highlight some of the top trends.  We never claim to cover every trend.  We also know that a lot of the looks shown on the runway are not always the most wearable.  That being said, we think you’ll still find something that you like and want to try from our list this spring.

 

Cold Shoulder Tops

This is one of our favorite trends of the season.  It started in the fall, but designers really made a strong statement with bare shoulders for spring.  We love it because if you buy the right one, you can wear the top casual or dress it upWe also love the idea of a chambray off the shoulder top.  It's on our shopping list for spring!

Modern Ruffles

We know ruffles have been around for many seasons and many of us probably go through highs and lows of loving them and hating them.  However, for spring the ruffles were not done all over, nor were they as structured.  We like this because it’s just a touch of ruffle.  Who doesn’t’ like that slight bit of femininity?

Pajama Dressing

So we know that this may not seem like the most wearable trend.  Or maybe some of you are excited because now you have permission to wear your pajamas out in public.  Take a deep breath and relax, we aren't talking about some slinky little intimate. Think silky menswear inspired pajamas or a long charmeuse night gown.

No-Iron Look

A prefect segway from wearing your pajamas is the “I just rolled out of bed in my clothes" look.  Unfortunately, we don’t think this is going to give us a pass from having to iron our favorite shirt that looks wrinkled once it comes out of the dryer.  The way designers showed this look was much more purposeful and intentional and had everything to do with the fabrics that they chose. Think silk voile, crinkled chiffon and heavier organza.

Bucket Hats

We love that hats have been trending for a while and we are extra excited about bucket hats.  We think it’s the perfect spring/summer option for all you beanie lovers out there.  It’s also just a little more ladylike so we think more people will be able to wrap their heads around this trend (ha!)

Nautical

Again, not a new trend. However, we love how designers showed this look.  It was very fresh.  Not at all reminiscent of the anchors away red, white and blue nautical look.  For spring it was well styled and on point.

Orange

One color that was present in many collections was orange.  We think it’s a welcome addition to the spring pallet.  We love pairing it with white, but also love how designers have combined different shades of orange together.
