Feeling the need to update my wardrobe for summer I went looking at the 2016 Spring/Summer collections for inspiration,in hopes that the fashion world will get me out of my winter depression.I’m a tad eager for summer to rear its head i know but you need something to look forward to.Its the little things that keep me sane!
These are my favorite trends for SS 2016,that caught my eye and it looks easy enough to incorporate into any wardrobe. I hope it brings some sunshine into your wardrobe.
I am a big fan of off the shoulder everything. Imagine my excitement when I saw the off the shoulder top or cold shoulder as its known make the cut. It seems this is a big hit this summer.
As much as I am a bag person, this trend is not for me, this time around. I love it , I wore it in the 90’s. It re-surfaced in 2014 and it seems its going to be here for another season. I have seen this trend on every street corner, no wonder it made another season.
Another firm favorite of mine is the high collared Victorian styled shirts. With puffy sleeves and bows the Victorian trend has never looked more romantic.
Personally I don’t think this trend is for me which is okay because not every trend is meant to make its way to your wardrobe, but seeing that this was big on the runway, I thought I would include it. If you love the feminine feel that wearing underwear as outerwear gives , this is a must have according to fashionistas everywhere.
- Graphic bags
Now this is something I can get excited about. Bold statement bags are in. A statement bag can pull any outfit together and portray your mood at the same time.
- Embroidered dress
Think boho, romantic, peace , love and fairy dress, this is how I would describe the feel of this trend. Over the past month I have seen this dress pop up more and more on my feed and I find myself strangely drawn to it .
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my all-time favourite movie and sometimes I think it’s because for the first time in my life this movie made it perfectly normal for a lady *not of the Royal descent* to include a Tiara in her everyday wear. When I saw this in SS2016 I can’t even explain how my heart jumped for joy. Forget the headbands and flower garlands, Tiara’s are this season’s it hair accessory. And luckily for me I just brought a fresh batch back from Turkey.
This wardrobe staple is classic. The basic white shirt however has had a major revamp on the runway. Think asymmetrical, button down,shirt dress even off the shoulder.
Flats have always equaled comfort. Now comfort meets understated style. As seen on the runway for Victoria Beckham, mules are now on trend. Think I’ll stick to flats.
Whether you like yours distressed, really short dresses, or short shorts, raw, light, shirt dresses, boyfriend or high-waisted, denim is another wardrobe basic and took its place as a firm favourite on the runway.
