9 Fashion Trends for Spring 2016

There’s nothing I love more than following the designer shows as they unfold on American soil or across the pond.  Many appear outlandish, even comical. If you learn to filter through the drama and the over the top need to capture headlines, you can begin to identify trends that are noteworthy and will find their way into wearable, buyable designs, particularity designs that are made with the Prime Woman in mind.

If the season’s new clothes are any indication, shoppers are hungrier than ever for something to grab onto, for an emotional component that extends beyond mere high-gloss luxury. Designers have responded in kind, serving up the romantic, the eye-catching and the ornate. I’ve broken it down into 9 key trends.

Enjoy comparing the catwalk fashions to the on the street interpretations you will being seeing this spring.

Pajama Party

Whether cotton poplins, floral satins or star-spangled silks are preferred, designers are releasing two-piece pajama sets from the confines of the bedroom. Wear your elevated PJ’S on the streets with pride. It’s about ease, fluidity and comfort.

Your light spring jacket is going to be the bomb. Cropped, voluminous styles lend a sporting vibe to everything from dresses to leather trousers and hot pants. Focus on the jacket.

Spanish Eyes

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.

Flower Power

The floral story for spring rings in somewhere between demure, ultra-feminine and even ironic. Think ladylike frocks with English garden patterns and Victorian ruffles, sheer black florals and edgy grunge prints.

Romantically Speaking

Whoever said romance is dead has not yet perused the latest catwalks. Feathers, ruffles, pastels, cream, chiffon and sheer details add up to the sort of earnestly pretty frocks that make even the most cynical fashion girl swoon.
