Spring fashion and style trends for 2016 are beginning to show up in the retail stores across America which herald the hope of warm weather or at least a very sunny getaway. In fact, if you’re listen carefully you can hear that knock at the door, Groundhogs Day. Some say opening it can cause the onset of spring fever and illuminate that peppering question in the back of everyone’s mind, what’s new in the way of fashion and style this spring? Let’s examine the fashion trendy possibilities.
First off Snappa reports the top five trends for spring include metallics, the romantic, stripes, pajama wear and vintage looks. Metallic surfaces that sparkle and shine from sequins to foil are the highly recommended it wear. Romantic looks mean lots of frills and ruffles, soft feminine fabrics like chiffon and cashmere, and floral prints. Stripes in both thin and fat, horizontal and vertical lines make big stand out fashion statements. Pajama wear translates as it’s now okay for bed heads to roll right out of bed and walk straight into the boardroom in a very chic set of silk p.j’s. Last but not least is the look of vintage. Vintage is all about old and outdated fashion looks rebooted with the pairing of new shoes, handbag or the hottest jewelry trend this year the statement earring.
Fashion reporters Joanna Nikas and Vanessa Friedman for The New York Times are reporting the big fashion hit this season is lingerie as in lovely lacy looks seen on the runways at Alexander Wang, Dior and Calvin Klein. Derek Lam and Stella McCartney are still pitching the classic shirt dress with a twist, off the shoulder looks command attention from Balmain, Christopher Kane and Givenchy while designer denim is all the rage at Chanel, Chloe and Marc Jacobs. What else is there to rise an eyebrow at but the track suits of Max Mara and Libertine, the gothic chunky shoe seen at Louis Vuitton and Libertine and backpacks put on display by Burberry, Versace and Moschino.
Writer, producer Monica Richards for ModaMob reports with confidence that the new year will bring new fashion trends but there is no reason to go crazy and here’s why.
Richards says, “Many trends from last year will carry over like the high shine of metallics and turtlenecks.”
Furthermore, long after the fall and winter snows melt into spring flowers according to Richards, the fashion looks of 2015 that have staying power include the polished handbag in white and monotone colors, the shoulder touching statement earring, and 70s flashback high waisted flared jeans. The must have colors for spring guaranteed to perk up your wardrobe are dusty rose and serenity blue, as well as cooper tones, and rusty reds.
