Top Trends to Follow for Spring 2016
With each passing season old trends disappear and new ones come to fruition. Many times, new, seasonal trends are a unique twist on a classic or a throwback to an old trend that is once again, growing in popularity.
After the cold and rainy weather of fall and winter, the sunshine spring brings with it is a welcomed relief. As such, most people are ready to ditch their warm winter coats and boots in exchange for casual dresses, floral patterns, and strappy sandals.
If you are ready to start putting your winter clothes into storage, here are the fashionable trends for spring 2016 to fill your closet with:
One of the must-have items for 2016 is unique jewelry, including gemstone necklaces, brass bangles, delicate rings, and anklets—a 90’s trend making its way back into circulation. The large coats and scarves of winter tend to cover typical jewelry areas, thus jewelry is particularly fun in the spring and summer months, as it is a perfect outfit accessory since it can be seen at all times.
Another 90’s era fashion statement coming back into style, slip dresses are a spring essential. They’re comfortable, versatile, and entirely flattering. Moreover, they can easily be paired with heels for a girls’ night out, Toms for a casual weekend outing, or sandals and sunglasses for a beach outing.
Flats have been in style for a while now, as they are the perfect way to turn a casual outfit into a classy and elegant fashion statement. For spring, pointy-toe ballet flats are all the rage. The trendy point of the shoe manages to add a layer of depth to each outfit, and can be paired with a dress for a nice event or a pair of shorts for a casual brunch or dinner.
It appears that stripes are the trend for spring, as striped skirts, shorts, and pants seem to be popping up everywhere. Vertical strips are extremely slimming, as they help to elongate the bottom half of the body, making legs look longer and leaner. These striped skirts and shorts are classy enough to be worn to work, but can also be dressed for a casual getaway.
Where slip dresses are the urban, cutting edge style, ruffle dresses offer a more feminine appearance. The curves of the ruffles give a romantic, sweetheart vibe, bringing femininity to a whole new level. The loose ruffles can make any spring dress look more feminine without going overboard.
Adding a pop of color to your wardrobe in the form of a purse or clutch is most definitely in style this spring. The bold colors against a laid-back outfit will keep your style looking bright, fresh, and easily one-of-a-kind.
Cropped jackets are not going anywhere in this spring’s style trends. Finding a good cropped jacket will be a staple in your wardrobe, as it can easily emphasize a little black dress or complement any work outfit.
These spring trends will be a staple in any wardrobe for 2016.
