Spring Summer 2016 Trend Report

Spring is just around the corner. Do you know what's going to be the must have of the season? Have you started completing your spring wardrobe? In order to not get lost and choose the best what suits you read my trend report.

# I woke up like this

From pajamas set to slip dresses, from berdoom to office. It’s definitely the biggest Spring Summer 2016 trend. Not easy to style but with few tips you are going to conquer the streets.

The pajama pant and shirt combo is hot property great to wear in office.

Nightshirt? Think pinstripes, high-necked yolks, piping and embroidery.

Designers were unanimous in their backing of the nightie – lingerie-inspired, with a hint of Edwardiana as seen through a 70’s lens. Styled with messy bed-head locks, this look couldn’t be easier to achieve. Just add the trend’s requisite footwear: the loafer.

Slip and camisole dresses could quite easily inform direction for actual underwear to night gowns. Think flirty, feminine and free, then render it in a light palette of ivory, powdered blue and pink blossom.

And if all of the above is just a little too frilly for you, there’s a minimalist approach to the trend as well. Think the clean lines of a perfectly made bed topped by sheets fresh from the laundry, with the merest hint of flair in a well-pressed valance. The all-white story in cotton or silk is the most versatile way to access this restful theme.

# Romance was born

A frillier version of femininity, a newer New Romantic for you to fall in love. Here they are, the leading romantic trends:

A little bit Victoriana, a little bit 80s, lace has come along to give next summer’s romance some flirtation.

She may look naive and straight-laced, but don’t underestimate the allure of the prairie dress. If you take your femininity with a hard edge, recent street style shows sneakers are holding on strong: you can see this one paired with Stan Smiths and biker jacket. A match made in heaven.

Under the romantic trend, wallpaper florals and staples of the English garden will do well.

Bishop, leg of mutton, bracelet, angel and circular flounce sleeves were seen in every proportion during Spring Summer 2016 Fashion Weeks. This trend isn’t for everyone. Sleeve volume is so polarizing that I’d really only recommend this one to the most fashion-forward of you and with small breast.

# Let’s dance! Flamenco

Perhaps the book on designer shelves going into the season was "The Sun Also Rises," because the Euro country of favor is decidedly Spain. Flamenco ruffles, off-the-shoulder details and shocks of red have us dreaming of Barcelona in the spring.

Anti-90s, these fussy and complicated forms were everywhere. It felt frivolous and good. Designers ran frills down dresses and pants, slung them across shoulders and had them spilling from skirts.

And if all that’s a bit complicated to you, place a ruffled row across the front of a simple tee.

# Moonwalk

Designers got intergalactic. Silver pants were a statement piece. These will pair well with the lightweight summer knits around.

Metallic hints were carried through to other garments – seen in the kick of a skirt, the lapels of outerwear and even on footwear. 

Simple shapes carried the theme best – shifts, oversized t-shirt shapes, high-neck cuts.

# Army of news

In stark contrast to all that lingerie is militarization. There’s an emphasis on outerwear. Think epaulettes, utility pockets, embroidery and frogging. Transitional parkas were also seen in droves – festival-ready.

It’s the trend which gives the bomber jacket new life. 

Beyond the outerwear, there are overalls, crossover skirts, shirting and the simple tee. 

A focused palette of navy, red, burgundy, khaki and grey sees this story offering some work-appropriate options.
