Spring-Summer 2016 Main Fashion Trends
Fashion is unpredictable and transient. From year to year it changes its mood, it names the priorities and impose its vision on fashion. Each new season gives us the “top site” or trends in fashion. Therefore, let’s what are the current trends of the new 2016 spring-summer season.
Spring-Summer 2016 Fashion Trends: Mesh
In the new warm season, fashion designers have given us many extravagant and interesting decisions. One of these may be the frequent use of the mesh. Designers urge us to create from mesh virtually all types of clothes – blouses, skirts, sweaters, dresses, shorts, tops, tunics, and many others. Given the warm season of the year, such a decision is clear – wearing such clothes, fashionistas will not melt because of the heat and will not miss coolness because through multiple holes, the skin may permanently feel the soft breath of wind. Acne Studios, Miss Guided, Missoni, Moschino, Valentino, Tracy Reese, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Simone Rocha, Ashley Williams, Dolce and Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta urge us to wear mesh clothes.
Denim will also be on high demand. Denim clothes penetrated deep into the mind and soul of fashionistas, which makes it to be in the top 10 most important fashion trends of the season. Currently, it is hard to imagine that originally denim garments were worn only by the working class, and now it is virtually always present in all existing styles. Denim is characterized by high density, impermeability and resistance to wear, which allows it to be used often in grunge, rock and casual looks. Due to the spandex and Lycra from its composition, denim can be successfully worn in the business, and in the glamour fashion. Denim shorts, jeans and jackets have become a classic of the warm season and can include shoes, hats and bags. In the new Spring-Summer 2016 season for denim opted Greg Lauren, Ashish, Peter Pilotto, Marques Almeida, Alexander McQueen Saint Laurent, Chloe, Alexander Wang.
The slight bare effect is not pleasing designers and fashionistas, wanting more daring decisions. From now on, fashionable will be considered clothing that basically hides nothing. Maximum transparency is the main trend of the spring-summer 2016 season. In the opinion of many brands, fashionistas do not have to hide their beauty. If you have what you are proud of, demonstrate this without hesitation! However, if such a decision seems too radical, you can always combine the transparent portions with more “discrete” fabrics. The transparent fabrics are uses to create and sew dresses, skirts, tops, outdoor apparel, pants and even bags (Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Greg Lauren, Sibling, Alberta Ferretti, Anna Sui, Arthur Arbesser, Antonio Marras, Felder Felder, Blumarine Greg Lauren, Francesco Scognamiglio, Givenchy, Phealan, Missoni, Marques Almeida, Vionnet, Thakoon, Betsey Johnson, SiblingPhilosophy di Lorenzo Serafini).
Punk rock and grunge rock
Bold and confident ladies, who are not afraid to show their rebellious nature, certainly know styles like grunge, punk and rock. And if previously these were used only occasionally, then now, you are able to do it almost always because according to the opinion of many brands, these fashion trends will become virtually the most basic in the new warm season. So if in wardrobe you have leather clothes, long stocking boots, wigs, big metal jewelry, studded shoes, biker leather jackets and other details that can be attributed to the above mentioned styles, use them with confidence in casual outfits! If you do not have something similar in the closet, then you have to necessarily get them! (Philipp Plein, KTZ, Fausto Puglisi, Betsey Johnson, Saint Laurent, VFiles, Burberry Prorsum, Pam and Gela, Louis Vuitton).
Nowadays, it is hard to imagine fashion trends, which would deprive the fringes. These are very popular for some time and summer 2016 is no exception. Loose fringes of different sizes and colors can be found on bags, dresses, skirts, tunics, sweaters, shoes, and outerwear. Fringes have become the icing on the cake of collections of the following designers: Altuzarra, Chloe, Emilio Pucci, Diane von Furstenberg, Dion Lee, Barbara Bui, Veronique Branquinho, Alberta Ferretti, MSGME, Edun, Elie Tahari, Marc Jacobs, Anna Sui, Alexander Wang.
Frills, pleats, ruffles, lantern sleeves
If previously, the abundance of décor elements were a sign of bad taste, then nowadays, they no longer impress anyone. On the contrary, designers encourage all kinds of frills, folds, pleats, lantern sleeves, applied bows, jabots, etc. Clothes decorated in such a way take us immediately in the Victorian era, in those days when all these details of an outfit were extremely popular. So, Jason Wu, Dries van Noten, A Detacher, 1205 Stella Jean, Manish Arora, Roksanda, Sibling proposes to beam us in the nineteenth century.
The asymmetric cut lines have not left the fashion catwalks either. These are also in the top 10 key fashion trends of the warm season. Therefore, do not rush to part with romantic and feminine mullet dresses, with one shoulder blouses, disproportionate shirts, skirts and blouses. If your wardrobe has at least a coat with asymmetrical cut, with prints and cuts, then you can automatically consider yourself a fulfilled fashionista. Costume National, Aquilano, Chloe, Marques Almeida, Jang Li, 1205 Martin Grant, Jill Stuart, Guy Laroche, Jacquemus are showing us how exactly should look asymmetrical clothes in spring-summer season.
In the opinion of fashion designers, the more glittering our spring-summer outfit will be the better! To this end, designers have launched whole series of clothes that sparkle in the sun. At the manufacturing of such clothes can be used most diverse fabrics – from latex to the atlas. In addition, to achieve this effect, brands have used not only materials but also decorative elements such as sequins, metallic gaskets, glitter, etc. The important thing is that the look was shining and pleased our looks with its metallic reflections. Looking on such clothes, we involuntarily recall the rebel disco style, which is characterized by bright outfits. However, modern glittering clothes look more reserved. Most brands have used natural metallic colors like gold, silver, etc. Bold acid shades weren’t used at all. Examples of such outfits can be seen in collections Lacoste, Tibi, Blumarine, Gareth Pugh, Iceberg, Loewe, Parsons MFA, Philipp Plein, Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli, Esteban Cortazar, Felder Felder, Karen Walker, Les Copains, Tracy Reese, Vanessa Seward.
As we well know, fashion loves all kinds of prints and ornaments. In the new warm season, the undisputed leader became geometry, in particular stripes. Striped ornaments are distinguished by thickness, orientation in space, tone and accuracy. These can embellish both business suits, as well as clothing in casual style. Some brands have decided to combine it with other prints. Striped clothes recommend us wearing Damir Doma, Alexander Wang, Stella Jean, Prada, Mara Hoffman, Marc Jacobs, Emporio Armani, Elie Saab.
Another top trend will become all kinds of embroidery with applications that can decorate various fabrics and garments. For example, Gucci and Marc Jacobs decorated with embroidery leather jackets and brutal jeans, Dolce and Gabbana and Blumarine – coats and jackets, Emilio Pucci, Emporio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger and Manish Arora – sweaters and cardigans. You can improvise without limit. If you like the floral theme, you can use all sorts of buttons and flower petals; if you prefer animals motifs, you can represent any animal loved on clothes. In addition, clothes were covered with airplanes, road signs, geometric figures, inscriptions, stars, shells, etc.
