The iHeart Radio Music Awards 2016 recently kicked off and there were many celebrities who slayed the red carpet. Taylor Swift wore a black belted jumpsuit designed by Saint Laurent, Selena Gomez wore a Mugler jumpsuit, and Julianne Hough wore a Jill Stuart mini. Many celebrities stay up to date with the latest fashion trends. Here are the fashion trends for Spring 2016.
Rihanna has a versatile style and has one of the most trending wardrobes. Rihanna has some inspiring ideas that you should fill your wardrobe with.
1. A monochrome outfit in a pastel pink color.
2. Hoodie dresses that are worn slightly unzipped.
3. Rihanna has the wardrobe staple of slip dresses. She regularly pairs slip dresses of every length with two-strap sandals.
4. If you’re looking for a chic spring look, try out the shorts suit. It is polished and playful, with the structured blazer and the leg-baring shorts.
5. If you’re feeling a little riskier, put on a pair of thigh-high boots and pair them with shorts.
6. The pink puffy dress, which is a tribute to the 80s, is the perfect way to try the off-the-shoulder trend this spring.
Fashion trends are not just for the ladies; they are also for men. Just like the ladies, there are items that men should have in their wardrobe this Spring.
1. Fifties shirts
This is a collection of large polos and textured fifties. Combine this look with tailored pants and dark wayfarers as accessories. To perfect the look, wear darker tones, powder hues, and remember that contrast is key to having a more polished look.
2. White Chinos and Trousers
This is a contemporary look with pops of bright colors and deep navies. This trend looks best with accessories such as belts and dusty brown boots. For a more preppy look, combine white pants with traditional cable knits and patterned sweaters. For the classic weekend look, pair white denim with washed out chambray button down shirts.
3. Bomber Jackets
Add 50s bomber jackets to your Spring collection. These jackets are versatile for casual wear while keeping you looking cool and comfortable.
If you’re more of a jeans person, the website Ducksoupstyle.com gives you insight on the best jean brands you’ve never heard of and how to build your individual style.
The Strike Gold
This company is based out of Japan and produces high quality denim. Strike Gold has an interesting way of subtly playing with the colors. The company crafts jeans with an indigo warp, and a weft with a non-traditional color like brown. The jeans have a wealth of contrast which gives you something different while maintaining a high degree of quality.
The Real McCoy’s
The company replicates vintage designs and feel. They add a large amount of vintage touches on their denim including classic fits, cinch-back waists, and rigid denim. The Real McCoy’s is a great way to get the vintage look with high quality material.
Building your individual style:
Pick out things that you like
This is where you follow your natural instincts. You do not want to look like you went through every piece of clothing that day, you want to look natural.
Don’t worry about anyone else
When you’re picking out your clothes, you need to dress for you and not for other people. If you’re dressing a certain way for your significant other, you’re likely to end up being uncomfortable because that’s not you.
Just because you may not be able to wear that outfit all the time does not mean that it’s a bad purchase. It’s acceptable to purchase the outfit that you’ve had your eye on for months. The best way to look stylish is to remain true to yourself. For those who are risk-takers, you should be taking the plunge as often as possible.
This is the most critical part of building your own style. Regardless of whether you like to wear all black or wear jeans all the time, you should always hold your head up high. Confidence is something people notice and if people choose to make fun of your style, that’s the perfect opportunity to laugh them off because you don’t care.
