2016 spring trends

Another season has come and gone, and while we loved the furry boots and warm accessories of winter, we’re dying to shed some of the layers for the warmer weather to come. The spring 2016 fashion shows demonstrated a spectrum of trends, with many of them that have the potential of translating into our daily wardrobe. So ladies, put away those big coats and knit sweaters and try these trends on for size:

The X Silhouette Last year was all about the off shoulder tops, and continuing the obsession with accentuating your shoulders is the new “x” halter neckline, a spin off of the popular spring 2015 trend. According to Elle, the silhouette was observed across various major designers, including Derek Lam, Givenchy and Jason Wu.

The Elevated Pajama Labels are adding a whole new meaning to Casual Fridays at the office as labels introduce their take on high fashion flannel pajamas. In previous seasons, silk and lace slips stole the spotlight in terms of boudoir wear turned everyday wardrobe, but it’s the two piece pajama that designers are focusing on at the moment. Whether you’re a fan of floral satins or star spangled silks, industry leaders like Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci have you covered.

The Ruffly Ensemble Romance was in the air as the models for Marques Almeida, Michael Kors and Roberto Cavalli stepped onto the runways in ruffles. Spanish influences are appearing everywhere in the fashion world, and this key detail trend makes feel like bringing out our inner flamenco dancer. Although these styles will be prevalent this upcoming spring season, remember that you shouldn’t blindly follow trends. The beauty of fashion is that there aren’t any rules, and there’s no shame in going against the current. “It’s all about your comfort and that starts with a great fit,” says the women’s plus size fashion retailer Woman Within, so if these trends don’t work for you, go with what you’re comfortable in.

Which of these trends is your favorite?
