The Spring Summer Fashion Week has given us new trends. This summer, you should probably forget about the themes that you would not buy. Easy and simple trends from the nineties have been seen across a number of runways.
The Trends Dissected
The first trend is the slip dress in very soft colors. Think about Kate Boswort. The dresses this time around have evolved to a new look that is more grown up and has also been made over in different fabrics.
The crisp white shirt is another trend this season, but instead of being a simple foundation piece, it has been reinvented in an asymmetric look complete with panels, this look was seen on the runways of Victoria Beckham, Preen, Valentino and Theyskens’ Theory.
The biker jacket in various shades other then black was also seen on many runways, proving this clothing piece to be an agreeable part of any wardrobe. Hues like pink, blue and white will be big and will hopefully give you a number of compliments.
Skinny jeans and trousers are out. Baggy trousers are trendy this season, so this summer, ditch the skinnies and let your legs breathe a bit in long flowy trousers that add elegance to your look. The look was seen at Michael Kors, Derek Lam and Mulberry.
Squares or checks rather, was seen on trousers, jackets and dresses- the only thing that you have to worry about with this pattern is whether you would choose grids or cheese cloth patterns. The popular colours are black, white, light blue.
Jewels and crystals gave a number of new designs on runways a very magical look; the crystals were stitched haphazardly. This look was seen from the labels that love big bling such as Dolce and Gabbana, Miu Miu, Prada, Marni and Balenciaga.
Shift blouses are also making their return from the nineties. The structured top has been on this wish list of many fashionistas and now would seem like the right time to invest in one. You can find one at Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Mulberry and Dolce and Gabbana.
Make a Mark
Statement shirts with loud slogans and messages that make absolutely no sense at all is another big trend. You shirt should shout out mottos or brand names from the roof tops.
The soft and dreamy English country garden look involves pastels in summery shades, lace and idyllic flower prints.
