Trend Report: Spring ’16

I recently wrote an article for The Eastern Echo about what trends to look out for this season. I decided to add some visuals and share these fun trends with you guys! All products were found on Polyvore and may no longer be available.

Colors: Pantone Color Report

Cold Shoulders: According to, many designers have been creating tops with cutouts meant to highlight just the shoulders. This makes your tops and dresses with this feature more breathable and it adds a little sex appeal to a basic T-shirt.

Spring Trend: Cold Shoulder Tops

Suede: According to Elle Magazine, 70s-inspired suede is making a comeback. Popular designers, like Rebecca Minkoff, have featured suede in their tops, skirts dresses and shoes. Suede details are a fun way to mix-up textures. You can find shirts and bags with suede details at many fast fashion retailers.

Slip Dresses: This look may be a little risky for some. As one of the most sensual trends of the season, named by Vogue and other fashion influencers, the slip dress is bringing lingerie outdoors.  Featured in the runway shows of Céline, Calvin Klein, Givenchy and Alexander Wang, this combination of silk and lace is elegant, but is probably best to attempt on a dinner date or something along those lines.

Sneakers: A continuing trend that combines style with comfort is the ever classic sneakers. Unique sneaker designs were seen on the runways of Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and Tommy Hilfiger. If you are looking to expand your sneaker collection then check out brands such as Nike, New Balance, Vans, Converse and Puma. Once you have your basic colors that you can wear everyday, then maybe start expanding to some brighter colored sneakers.

Slippers: Another flat shoe trend and another trend that is mixing the comfort of your home with street fashion is slip-on shoes. Featured in Glamour Magazine, designers Balenciaga, Gucci and Victoria Beckham have all recently designed decorated outdoor slippers. So, if you were ever a fan of Adidas flip-flops or Gators, you might want to up your fashion game and try a pair of these this spring.

What trend are you excited about this season?
xoxo, Kayla
