Sweaters, Cardigans and Hoodies Spring-Summer 2016
Sweaters, turtlenecks, cardigans, hoodies, vests and other knitting are popular not only in cold but also in the warm season. And if during winter such warm clothes are designed to be worn under jackets, furs, coats, then in spring, these garments can be easily replaced with any outwear, because wearing them is not only comfortable, but also warm .It’s time to find out what sweaters recommend us to wear designers in the new 2016 spring-summer season.
Spring-summer collections include many items with lowered shoulders line. Here we can include dresses, blazers, blouses and of course hoodies, turtlenecks and sweaters that can be seen both with a V-shaped collar cut and also with a round cut. Bare shoulders recommend us wearing Tibi, Les Copains, Creatures of Comfort, Loewe, Chloe, Zero + Maria Cornejo. Usually, brands recommend associating them with easy fit pants and long skirts.
Sleeveless sweaters Spring-Summer 2016
While some designers recommend unveiling the female shoulders, others have included in their clothing line designs of sleeveless sweaters, turtlenecks, hoodies. Such garments can be found in a variety of interpretations – they can be very different by length, color, pattern and ornaments. Knitted, crocheted, soft knit – you decide. The main thing is the bare hands, so women should not be afraid to wear them even on sunny and warm days (Brunello Cucinelli, Orley, Maison Margiela, Babyghost, Issey Miyake, Wes Gordon, Creatures of Comfort, Victor Alfaro, Organic by John Patrick, Marni, Marco de Vincenzo, Greg Lauren, Sally LaPointe).
The easy fit cut unleash the creative fantasy of designers because with such items can be made the boldest experiments. You can play with sleeves lengths, cuts, cuffs, braiding, ornaments, textures, shapes, etc. In addition, we need to talk about the obvious advantages of the oversize style: loose sweaters can be worn by ladies with various body shapes. For this reason, this trend took root deep in the soul of thousands of women. In the new hot season, 3.1 Phillip Lim, ADEAM, Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood and many other fashion designers urge us to wear oversize sweaters.
Long sweaters, cardigans, hoodies
Sweaters, cardigans and other garments created from warm knit can be definitely called fashionable in the 2016 spring-summer season. Their length can sometimes be below the thighs line, which makes us talk about the return in fashion of sweater-dresses. These clothes universal and extremely practical can be worn also with the business and casual style. In this basis can create various looks, adding matching jewelry and accessories (Creatures of Comfort, Delpozo, Pringle of Scotland, Anthony Thomas Melillo, Agnova, 1205, Loewe).
Short sweaters, cardigans and hoodies
The amazing thing is that on par with long sweaters are also short sweaters. It is difficult to say what length is ideal as brands recommend us wearing both. Brunello Cucinelli, Michael Kors, Ji Oh, Jeremy Scott, Jason Wu, Christian Dior have opted short models. And if long designs are mostly found in severe colors and options, then the shorter ones on the contrary, are made in bright colors and with an unusual cut. For sweaters and short hoodies, designers chose geometric prints, asymmetrical hems, green, blue, pink, light blue and neon green colors.
If to speak about the main trends of the season, it is impossible not to notice the long sleeves. Pierro sleeves style, became a hit. It’s hard to say how functional and practical these are, but definitely look very original. (Derek Lam, Tory Burch, Max Mara, Rag & Bone, Isabel Marant, Esteban Cortazar, Organic by John Patrick, Orley, Paul Smith, Creatures of Comfort, Louis Vuitton, Emilio Pucci). If still the length bothers you somewhat, then you can cuff them any time.
The grunge style does not want to leave the fashion catwalks. And well do! This trend is suited for many women. From now on, there is no need to worry if you have a small hole on the sweater (or more), if the knitting fabrics haven’t been combined with suitable fabrics, if there are some threads hanging, etc. The grunge style has nothing against that, on the contrary. Proofs are the fashion shows from Acne Studios, Vetements, BCBG Max Azria, Joseph, Christopher Kane.
Zippers and buttons
If on the items are present zippers or buttons, then we are not talking about sweaters or hoodies anymore, these are called cardigans and blouses. They may have very different shapes, lengths, cuts but one thing unites them – the presence of a zipper or buttons (Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Arthur Arbesser, Loewe, A Detacher, Anthony Thomas Melillo, Moschino, Tomas Maier).
Designers have prepared for ladies who prefer the sport style some novelties that can be found in the collections of Marc Jacobs, Vetements, Ashley Williams, Alexander Wang. Hooded anoraks can be worn while jogging and using a sweater or a turtleneck, you can accentuate the slender body shapes.
Crocheted sweaters, vests, cardigans
Do you like crocheting? Get to work! Especially since the new 2016 spring-summer season manual crocheting is a fashion trend. No need to buy an expensive sweater that you liked. You can crochet by yourselves. Examples of such designs can be found in Victor Alfaro, Rebecca Taylor, Tommy Hilfiger collections.
Translucent sweaters designs will be in a great demand, which showed interest for 1205, Derek Lam, Barbara Casasola, Yang Li, Issey Miyake. These are specially designed for warm period because it leaves the fresh air and warm sunshine to circulate.
Monochrome items aren’t amazing anyone anymore. A thing that cannot be said about prints. In the new warm season, brands have shown a great interest for the animal world, which has led to the appearance of heads of lions, monkeys, roosters, dinosaurs (Tommy Hilfiger, Markus Lupfer, Coach). Besides, in fashion will be stars, stripes and flowers (Christian Dior, Karen Walker, Max Mara, Coach, Juicy Couture, Bottega Veneta, Ashley Williams) and planes (Chanel).
The variety of colors also impress us. Besides the standard colors, we can see a lot of beautiful pastel and bright colors. For example, Detacher, Chanel, Altuzarra and Ralph Lauren opted for blue, green, gray and pink, while Marc Jacobs, Coach and Rag & Bone – bright red and yellow.
