Spring Fashion 2015

The nostalgic nineties may have transfixed us for the past seasons, but come Spring 2015, fashion’s got an all-newdecade of choice. Let’s hear it for bellbottoms, sexy silks and peasant blouses because the seventies are back. And while disco may be the first image that comes to mind when thinking ‘70s style, this season’s diverse runways highlight the decade’s many forms. At Saint Laurent, it was all about glam rock, with short shorts worn alongside leather jackets, while at Valentino, flowing peasant dresses recalled era icons like Ali MacGraw and Talitha Getty.

The decade’s prevalence shone through with the use of suede and fringe and as well, with everyone from Etro to Proenza Schouler embracing a bit of swing. Elsewhere, designers jumped two decades prior, with the 1950s staple gingham popping up on shirtdresses at Altuzurra and Michael Kors.

And while fabric play was a big Spring fashion 2015 moment, silhouettes were also up for experimentation, with culottes, a street style favourite, reigning supreme. On the runway, relaxed calf-grazers were paired with tailored tops and waist-defining details, which were seen across the board at Marni, Céline, Edun and more.

Mixed messages are a standard state of play, but if there was one trend that everyone got on board with, it was denim. Whether embellished on baggy jeans à la Dolce & Gabbana or Canadian tuxedo-style at Roberto Cavalli, Moschino and Prada, denim got the runway treatment who couldn’t be on board with that?

In the words of Rihanna, denim is “like the f***ing Beatles.” It will never (ever) go out of style.

The Seventies

We’re continuing to time travel back to stylish decades and for Spring 2015, designers are focusing the attention on the rock n’ roll, free-spirited, androgynous 1970s. Bell-bottoms, bohemian dresses and skinny neckties made its way down the runway and we could not be excited to channel our inner ‘70s style.

Waist Definition

Waist-defining details was all the rage on the Spring 2015 runways. Whether it was cinched coats at Céline or belted pants at Marni, designers made sure the waist stole the spotlight. The hourglass figure is making a comeback.

Denim Blues

Denim got the runway-treatment this spring and we cannot be more thrilled about that. From embellished versions at Dolce & Gabbana to Moschino’s super girly Canadian-tux, designers upgraded everyone’s go-to to star status.

New Minimalism

Fall may have called for statement-wearing pieces, but it looks designers toned things down for the warmer season. Working a more neutral palette and minimalist details, head-to-toe neutral shades made its way down the runway bringing on a fresh, clean looks in-tune with spring.


Spring 2015 got a little western with suede coming in all sorts of styles and colours. Whether it was in crop form at Burberry or with subtle panels at Miu Miu, suede was the oddball fabric of choice.


Bid farewell to your midi skirts. Come spring, pants will be ruling your everyday wardrobe—specifically the super cool, calf-grazing culottes. While it may be a trend that many may be wary to try, with many designers showcasing a variety of style, from billowy styles to heavy-prints, we know there’s a pair for everyone.

Sheer Force

From tasteful cutouts to full-on sheer pieces, designers played with varying degrees of sexiness. Whether you want to show just a little bit of skin à la Versace or are ready to flaunt everything you’ve got via Tom Ford’s sheer tops (pasties and all), Spring 2015 has it all (or less).

Feathers & Fringe

Surface details may have popped everywhere last season, but for Spring 2015, designers got old school crafty. While fringe details were usually synonymous with hippie style, feathery additions made for a lighter-looking aesthetic and were just as popular both ways.

Tropical Prints

Floral may not be a groundbreaking trend for spring but the perennial print took a sunny trip down south (specifically the tropics) this season. With the temperature being turned up, many designers opted for bigger and colourful versions of the spring motif.

Sport Chic

If you think the fashion industry has tired out the athletic trend, just have a look at Spring fashion 2015. Sportswear is still going strong, but unlike previous seasons where we saw high performance looks, this season it’s all about the laid-back, casual ensembles perfect for the commute.
