With the change of the seasons comes a fresh batch of trends, and this spring is no exception. The runways have been flooded with so many trends that we here at Annie Heyward Styling are compiling them all for you in a two part blog series! We’ll even add in a few tips on how you can work these high-fashion looks into your own spring wardrobe! Keep scrolling to get your fill on some of the freshest trends for this spring:

 

1.) Dare to Denim

During the Spring 2016 fashion shows, denim flooded the runways in many different forms and designs. A few strong themes within the denim trend to be noted: 1.) slouchy, low-rise, pants (shot out to all the 90’s kids), 2.) patchwork and printed pattern denim, 3.) head-to-toe denim.  These themes are quite the departure from last season’s ultra high-rise jeans.

Some of you might be thinking, “Oh, great! Denim is a trend? I can just wear a pair of jeans and I’ll be on trend!”. Not so fast, ladies! Trends are a great vehicle for refreshing and rethinking your wardrobe. To make this trend you for you, try it out in a more subtle and less severe way than the daring looks you see on the runway. For example, work the head-to-toe denim look by pairing your favorite pair of skinny jeans with a chambray or denim button-up. Choose a shirt that is a similar wash and color to the jeans, and tuck it into the jeans for a clean, chic silhouette. Make the look even more slimming and throw on a pair of neutral-toned heels.

2.) To Tie-Dye For

Tie-dye was spotted all over the catwalk for spring, and came in all different hues, fabrics, and patterns. It gives off some serious beauty and bohemian vibes.

To wear this trend without looking like you just came back from summer camp, keep this look casual and in one color palette. Stay away from multi-colored tie-dye, and opt for a more subtle design that is different shades of the same color.

3.) Lingerie Looks

Another huge trend that designers have showcased is lingerie-inspired slipdresses, rompers, blouses, bralettes, and more. This sexy trend is made up of ultra-feminine touches of lace, chiffon, satin, and lot of skin.

Use this trend to add subtle touches of sexiness and femininity into your spring style. Try layering a lacy or silk camisole under a blazer or jacket. Look for dresses with a lace trim that evokes this trend.

4.) Voluminous Sleeves

Puffed, pumped up, and Victorian-inspired sleeves made a statement at many shows, especially during Paris Fashion Week.

This trend might seem too editorial to adapt from the runways, but if styled correctly, it could be the perfect fashion statement this spring. The important tip here is to not overwhelm the body with anymore volume than the sleeves. Choose a more stream-line skirt on skinny jeans, and let the sleeves do the talking.

5.) The Cold Shoulder

The body part for spring: shoulders. Exposed shoulders could be spotted left and right in the new collections for spring (move over, cleavage). This might be the most wearable and versatile trend for us try out this season because it comes in so many different silhouettes and necklines. Dare to bare both shoulders, or show just the tops with a higher neckline. No matter how much you decide to expose, this is a very tasteful and playful way to show a little skin this spring.
