If you’re in the market for a few additions to your wardrobe this season, there are some trendy styles out there you’ll want to stay on the lookout for. More so than the pieces themselves, you’ll want to pay special attention to the details—the prints and patterns, the fit, and the color.
If any of these few styles catch your eye this season, make sure you grab them!
The Prints and Patterns
There are three prints and patterns that standout for this season’s trends. The first two are prints—floral and tribal designs. Spoonflower listed them as two of the top fabric choices for 2016. For floral designs, they recommend vibrant, colorful blooms on a sheer background. Tribal styles vary, so stay on the lookout for “bold, busy patterns with both muted and bright colors.”
You can also expect to see an increase in stripes. According to The Fashion Supernova, solid and bold stripes were favorites on recent catwalks for top designers like Christian Dior, Armani, and Prada. Horizontal, angled, or vertical, it doesn’t matter; just choose cleanly defined, rich colors and you’re good to go!
This season’s star fit highlights the high-waist. Everything from jeans and skirts, to shorts and lingerie are coming out with looks that hug your ribs and hide your belly button, which makes the style great for anyone looking for some additional support around their mid-section—a notorious problem area for many women.
The collection from Woman Within showcases models of all different sizes sporting the design, and each one of them looks stunning. Flip through a few of their pages for ideas and inspiration on outfits for all different shapes. You can even find a few bikinis in the same style that will give you additional coverage when you’re soaking up the sun this summer.
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect fashionable colors, the colors of the year were actually awarded their title by Pantone—otherwise known as the authority on color. Unlike previous years, Pantone awarded the 2016 honor to two colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Both are peaceful colors that blend together just as beautifully as they stand on their own. They appease consumers seeking “mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern-day stresses,” but they also stand as a symbol for the gender-equality movement that’s happening in today’s fashion world. Once starkly known as colors depicting certain genders—blue for boys and pink for girls—today’s designers are blending the two styles to create gender-ambiguous styles that are perfect for anyone and everyone.
Try one trend or try them all! No matter what, these styles will steer you in the right direction for a fabulous and fashionable spring and summer for 2016!
