Spring 2016 biggest trends

spring 2016 biggest trends 2

It’s time to look back at Spring 2016 biggest trends.

That Spring feeling is already in the air, despite the fact that it was raining so much lately. I know I talked so much about Milan Fashion Week and the new collections for Fall-Winter 2016-17 presented there. So, last season probably feels like a distant memory.

To make the introduction simple, just remember this season it’s all about Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue.

Spring 2016 is about lingerie dressing, bomber jackets, ruffles, denim looks, pleats, sexy shoulders and suede! Anyway, regardless of what your choosing you should show your beauty and personality. Some people say that Beauty is relative. I say that Beauty comes from the inside.

Beauty is fashion and fashion means trends! But don’t forget to keep those classic items in your wardrobe because they’ll say more about you than the latest bag.

Here are the Spring 2016 biggest trends to follow right now:



Very red and very Spanish played out at Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Roberto Cavalli and more, ruffles became a key trend for Spring Summer 2016. Many designers proposed a lot of toreador ruffles, reworking the elements of Spanish culture in a new and fresh way. But quantity and quality are both important here. So be aware how you choose to wear them!

Anyway Ruffles are lovely. I’m in love with the Balmain ones. They make any piece look positively feminine and utterly delicate. There is nothing better than a Latin Dance when wearing Flamenco skirts and Spanish dresses for the warmer days.

Latino vibe is the key to your summer dates and vacations!


Pleats Mania

This is one of spring’s most wearable trend and is going to stick around! Because a lot of women have at least one pleated skirt in their wardrobe. This season pleats are discreet but in bold colors. They can be paired with everything from tucked-in blouses and heels to a leather jacket and sneakers. We’ve seen them on the runway at Céline, Emilio Pucci and Gucci.

Pleats are so lovable. They are interesting to look at, add a whole lot of flounce and still appear as chic and sophisticated as can be.


The sexy shoulders

Off Shoulders or let’s say Asymmetrical Necklines it is one of the biggest Spring 2016 Fashion Trend seen on!

If you were to invest in one fashionable piece this season, What would it be? You are right. The off-the-shoulder style.

The bared shoulders is rocking our worlds this season. They scream flawless summer nights on the beach! Designers like Erdem, Preen, Proenza Schouler and Creatures of the Wind showcased tops and dresses that exposed models’ shoulders.

Off-the-shoulders tops and dresses are both sexy and feminine, having the perfect neckline with the right amount of skin shown.

Lingerie Dressing

Designers decided spring should be all about boudoir lingerie: Silky nightie-dress hybrids, satin robes and Pyjama suits.

The slip dress is having a major come back this season and I simply adore this trend! It’s so easy to put on a sexy robe or dress and a suit jacket or a knitted sweater over. You can choose a lingerie lace from Celine, a 90s satin or see through chiffon from Saint Laurent or layered over fine knits at Pucci.

If walking down in lingerie on display isn’t the most realistic for you, try a lace top or camisole with jeans and a leather moto jacket.

With underwear as outerwear, SS16 is looking pretty sexy already! What do you think?


Low Slung Pants

Baggy pants are making a big come back this Spring 2016. Few pieces look quite as cool as that slouchy pair of pants, slung low on the hips.

Designers such as Chloé, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors launched on catwalk a lot of paper bag waists. This trend is tricky, but will sure turn heads if paired with a slick blouse.

I love the wide cropped culottes that keep appearing every season and I’m going to wear them as long as I can.


Bralettes over Blouses 

While last year, it was all about the slip dress over a shirt, for this season designers layered tiny bralettes and bustiers over blouses. The trend is on at Alberta Ferretti, Dries Van Noten and Balenciaga.

I can’t wait to see the girls who has the nerves to wear it! For sure Anna dello Russo!



Nautical Vibes

This is a trend that always seems to be in for every season, no matter how slight it might be. This time around the designers included everything from toggles to stripes and ropes, giving so many collections a rather interesting upscaling.

Even if you can’t board a yacht or lounge in South of France, you’ll look as if you can if you would wear Stripes from head to toe! For SS16, the stripe is oh so right, thanks to designers such as Giorgio Armani, Max Mara and Ralph Lauren.

My favorites marks go to Missoni, Roksanda and Prada, who experimented with chopped, curled and scattered lines.

’70s Suede

‘70s SUEDE continues on this Spring Summer 2016, but Rebecca Minkoff, Balmain and Jonathan Saunders used it on seasonal silhouettes like shorts, miniskirts, skinny pants and plunging dresses.

Also the designers have continued their vintage affair and the retro vibe is also brought to you by fringes everywhere!


Tribal Vibes

For spring, designers were clearly inspired by the ultimate beach bum.

If we can’t actually quit our jobs and book an exotic holiday in Bali, we’ll at least look like we did this season. 🙂 Thanks to the amount of exotic fringes, dresses, Baha pullovers, bucket hats, and loose linen coming in at designers as Altuzarra, BCBG and Alberta Ferretti.

Mango has also recently paid tribute to African Savannah with its new Tribal Spirit campaign.



Candy Colors

Get ready to see more color than we’re used to this season!

Designers clearly couldn’t make up their minds about which one to use so opted for them all.

The challenge was on as Christopher Kane, Gucci, Balmain and Dries Van Noten presented their Pantone hits in new graphic effects. The saturated hue is great for accessorizing and adding an instant pop of color to your outfit.
If you love colors opt for hot orange like Altuzarra, alligator green like Gucci and canary yellow like Jonathan Saunders.


Voluminous Sleeves

Dropped or rounded, voluminous shoulders were seen across several spring runways, including Balmain, Céline and Dior.

They add an exceptionally modern twist when paired with miniskirts and loose trousers. I love them!



White shirts everywhere

Nothing is as classic as a cotton shirt, right?

This Spring designers like Jacquemus, Kaelen, Michael Kors and The Row took this wardrobe staple and stretched it, elongated and reworked it into modern pieces.

Now it’s time to invest in some items for your own wardrobe. Of course, if you want to go for more trends into one, pair it with high waist pleats or striped trousers.




Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s your favorite Spring 2016 biggest trends of them all?

Let me know in a comment bellow.

Brushing up on the Spring 2016 biggest trends will also help in gauging what might be coming next, too.

For starters, I predict that off shoulder tops won’t be going anywhere next season. And, you’ll see ruffles and boudoir dressing on the runways again. But will streetwear continue to be an influence at Paco Rabanne, Chloé and Louis Vuitton? You’ll have to follow the Runways or Shopaholica Life to find out!
