The Most Practical Trends From Spring 2016 Runway Shows

Spring fashion always boasts of new prints, textures, colours and palettes, and for a fashion lover, it’s easily the most happening season of the year. The spring 2016 collections were revealed last year, and this is honestly the best time of talk of the trends from the season, given that most of the ideas can work for almost every season. In this special interactive post, we will be talking of some amazing things from spring 2016, which you can wear for rest of the year, along with some practical tips and ideas.

Love for ruffles: Ruffles can add a lot of drama to any look, and no wonder, the trend keeps coming back to the runways time and again. If you are fond of striking looks with ruffles, there is a lot to see in the spring collections. Top fashion labels like Balenciaga, Rosie Assoulin, Roberto Cavalli, and Ralph Lauren worked with a lot of amazing ideas, especially with sculpting ruffles that added a new dimension to every look. Ruffles can be really fun to experiment with, although you might need to tone down the use of accessories and statement pieces to avoid a chaotic look.

Pleated for sure: Apart from ruffles, pleats were a major hit for spring 2016. From big names like Chanel and Gucci to revered labels of Emilio Pucci and Sonia Rykiel, pleats were everywhere. This time, pleats weren’t just used to create an effect, but these were more functional pleats that worked like a real element. There were flowing summer dress, skirts and even coordinated outfits, offering choices for everyone. If you haven’t experimented with your clothing for a while, this can be with spending time on.

Stripes for the lady: One cannot complete a spring 2016 collection review without talking of the stripes. In 2016, you will see a lot of the bold stripes, including mix of some bold shades and often minimal tones. Some like Christian Dior, Alexander Wang and Dolce & Gabbana worked with popping colours to create a more stunning impact while there were others like DKNY and Elie Saab, who created for subtle striped looks. This is easily the most wearable trend of the season, which would look good on almost anyone. Pair a nice short dress with black tights and a pair of sneakers for the fall, and this can be a more universal trend. For tights, click here.

Bonus: If you are someone who likes to invest in designer wear, you should look for a few white shirt revamped ideas at Amanda Wakeley, Fendi and Vera Wang to name a few. Basically, these designers changed the classic white button down shirt to something more amazing, adding a lot of fun elements like cut-outs, sheer materials and even asymmetrical hemlines.
Until we meet again for some amazing fun, keep happy and find your own fashion calling!

  1. I also agree that ruffles is such a big trend this Spring-Summer, also the shirt dress and boho looks with many embroideries and light lace ( Temperley London, Elie Saab, and Anna Sui did that )
