With Spring season upon us, good times are here! The weather is beautiful, your woolens are packed and out come some wonderful new trends to have you look stunning. Keep your wardrobe as fresh as the air outside, especially since much of this season’s international trends reflect a revival of forgotten styles, but of course, with a twist – seems like you need to reshuffle your wardrobe! Read on and find out which essentials you need to stock up on – after all, spring is your time to shine!
This season, couture goes colorful. And no, not in the technicolors and neons of Spring 2014, but with yellows, whites and blues in abundance. Runways have witnessed much monochromatic yellow and white clothing – striking and chic, even-toned outfits, jazzed up with layering and textures. Also, bid goodbye to the classic black-and-white combo now since blue is the new black. Blue and white can be your new go-to combination.
Say Hi! to the roomy denims you pushed to the back of your closet a long time back. Ever since the skinnies came in, those flared bottoms and baggy jeans have been sitting idle in some dark, unvisited corner. But now, no more. Inspired by the 70’s ramps, loose-fitting denims have been brought back (yes, your tightly-ensconced calves and thighs can breathe again!). Team them up with silhouette-defining blouses and tiny crop-tops for a chic, well-balanced look.
In 2015, two old-timers that have been restored as far as prints go. First are gingham prints, which no longer look like picnic-sheets and table-cloths; incorporated into sheer styles and blown-up silhouettes, these checkered beauties make for interesting day-wear. The second comeback pattern is the floral – soft, feminine and flirty as it is. Sported by many on the Oscars Red Carpet, this time around, bold floral is trending high. Looks lovely too, so go get them flowery-prints asap!
When it comes to necklines, all-or-nothing is this season’s mantra. On the one hand, one-shoulder cuts have been making a terrific statement on all runways, be it in dresses, blouses, gowns or crop-tops. In stark contrast to that, high-necklines (which are atypical of Spring Fashion) are also much in vogue; striking and chest-enhancing, these are perfect for those fashionistas who like to be bold, beautiful and ever-experimental.
Footwear and Accessories
Your feet are in for a treat because comfy shoes are back! From sneakers to simple sling-backs, everything devoid of heels shall be a fashionable success this Spring. Give your heels a rest and let the flats out – sometimes, fashion and comfort do get along! With regard to accessories, Obi belts (Kimono-style cloth sashes) of medium width are quite the craze. Cinch your waist in with these when wearing formal suits or casual skater dresses, thus adding an extra touch of grace. Other than this, sporty knick-knacks such as wristbands, visors, drawstrings and zippered bags are quite the in-thing as well. Who said sportswear is just for the gym? Not Spring 2015!
So these are the styles that models have been rocking on the runways of high-end fashion brands. Adopt these to compliment your own fashion sense and don’t hesitate to try the unfamiliar. Think about it, if not for rejuvenating Spring, when else will you explore and experiment with new styles?
