Spring Runway Trends

I love spring fashion - the light airy maxi dresses, colorful prints, and feminine details make my style-obsessed heart skip a beat. There were stunning shows for Spring/Summer 2016 and with the first day of spring on Sunday, I thought there was no better time to round up my favorite trends from the runways. Which one is your fave?

{amazing off-the-shoulder & cold-shoulder options}

Last year, my favorite trend was off-the-shoulder (evidence here & here). I must say the addiction hasn’t slowed down as I’m still scooping up anything off-the-shoulder I can find! This season’s update is the cold-shoulder – with intricate details such as embellished collars and strappy necklines.

{see great suede stuff here}

You all know I’ve been loving the 70’s revival (styled here, here & here). Suede is my go-to when it comes to the 70’s-inspired trends. Everything from suede shorts, a fringe bucket bag, or a mini-skirt give off that bohemian vibe.

Florals & spring go hand in hand. While it’s not a ground-breaking trend, it still evokes the change in season so perfectly, and there are an endless amount of floral options in the market, whether you like a subtle daisy print or a large scale graphic design. The freshest take on floral was seen at Michael Kors and Burberry with both designers showing dresses with beautiful 3D floral appliqué.

Pleats make a resurgence every so often. This season however is all about the smaller knife pleat. I love the effortless look of a pleated maxi skirt and crop top – ideal for anything from brunch to a bridal shower.

{shop ruffled tops & dresses}

Nothing is more flirty than a ruffled top or dress. This trend is perfect for anywhere – work, date-night, a wedding. Just be sure to keep in mind the proportion and keep the rest of the look slim and simple as to not become a walking cupcake.

{shop white shirts here}

A crisp white button down is one of those staples in every wardrobe, but I'm loving the way designers are deconstructing this classic piece for spring. Think asymmetrical hems, unbuttoned & tied, and cold shoulder details to update this basic.

  1. I'm loving the cold shoulder trend--last year I was obsessed with the off-the-shoulder look so this is sort of similar! That Rebecca Minkoff dress is STUNNING!
