Read on to learn how to wear Spring 2016’s top trends now.
A spring staple to be sure, Alexander Wang’s sport-luxe version says effortless cool with a capital E. The relaxed silhouette and classic khaki hue works with everything in your closet from denim to LBDs. Throw it on over a chunky fisherman knit when the temperature drops for true tomboy perfection.
When it comes to updating your look, jewellery is a surefire way to instantly take you from drab to fab. Rag & Bone’s sculptural brass earrings (worn by every model in their spring show) are a modern take on tried-and-true hoops: graphic meets glam. Whether you’re wearing a cold weather topper or a party dress, these lust-haves for your lobes make a bold statement.
This girly hue has grown-up into one sexy colour. Diane Von Furstenberg knows the power of pink and how to rock it on the runway—and in real life. Take Karlie Kloss’s rosy print wrap dress. Pair it with your favourite coat and tights now, and with a distressed denim jacket and strappy metallic sandals come spring.
Long white dress
Call it the Kim Kardashian effect—LWD’s (long white dresses) in dreamy shades of cream are popping up everywhere on the runway this season. The trick to nailing this trend is keeping it casual, so be on the lookout for easy fabrics and spare silhouettes like Derek Lam’s one-hue wonder. A cozy ankle-skimming shearling and rich caramel-coloured boots will have you keeping up with the Kardashians all winter long.
Flashes of skin always win and this season’s gold medal belongs to Tibi’s super sexy off-the-shoulder top. With its throwback ’70s vibe and slouchy silhouette, this evening star is a shining example of seasonless fashion done right.
Why carry a basic black bag when there’s a world of whimsical extras to have and to hold? Thom Browne’s fish clutch is a great catch this season and beyond. Carry it day or night for instant street style star status. Serious style and a smile—this is one trend that will never swim away.
