Top 5 trends – spring 2016

As spring is almost here (it must be, right? this rain will eventually stop and spring will show up) I decided to go through all the trends designers are suggesting for this season and pick the ones I think are worth the attention. I narrowed it down to top 5 trends spring 2016 that I want to be rocking as soon as the weather allows it. Of course, some shopping must be done first, and I hope you will also find some inspiration here for little something something for your closet. But, before we start pulling out our wallets, let’s have a look at what’s in for spring this year.

Lingerie / Pajama Party

I have to say this has been one of my favourite trends for the last few seasons. It’s bereft because it allows you to be comfy while looking oh so stylish. You get to wear your satin pjs out on the street and while conquering the world you can also take a nap. All jokes aside, designers like Dolce and Gabbana have been doing two piece pajama sets from silk and satin. Lingerie is mostly present with lots of slip dresses heavily decorated with lace. It will get your femme fatale to shine out.

Suede 70’s

Fashion’s love affair with the 70’s is continuing and this time with the decade’s most beloved fabric – suede. So were inspired by the decade in their designs too, while others used the material for more contemporary pieces. Either way, if you love some suede this is the time to rock it.

Off the shoulder

Ladies were showing of their shoulders last spring too, but the silhouette gets even a bigger cut this year. Shaped like X, tops and dresses are barely strapping around the neck for maximal skin exposure.

New Romantics

Romance is not dead, at least not when it comes to fashion. Awake your girly side and enjoy feathers, ruffles, pastels, chiffon and sheer details as seen on runway Alexander McQueen and others. These pretty frocks will melt your heart. I recommend mixing them with leather and some edgy details to avoid looking like a princess.


These jackets are the bomb! Get warm for transitional weather in cropped voluminous styles made from silk and satin and with lots of embroidery. This originally military jacket got a more feminine touch for this season. From screaming prints to more subtle colours, choose whatever fits you best.
