I had a fabulous day at London Fashion Weekend at the Saatchi Gallery on Friday and so thought it would be good to give you the ‘heads up’ on the big four trends for Spring/Summer’16. The good news is that some of them aren’t really that new, so it could well be that you have items in your wardrobe already that you can simply recycle. Here are the ‘big four’ then:
1. Beautiful Botanics
Florals are everywhere, so whether you fancy giving a small nod to the trend in a top or scarf, or you want to go the whole hog and buy a top-to-toe floral maxi dress, you’ll look bang up to date this Spring/Summer.
Stripes and bold star motifs were a dominant feature on the catwalks. Breton tops are an easy way to do this trend, and are a classic wardrobe staple that you may well already have in your wardrobe. But there were stripes in dresses, jackets and skirts too on the catwalks. Always be mindful of your shape, height and scale when choosing stripes as they can add breadth and volume in all of the wrong places if you’re not careful!
3. Pop Art Brights
I have to admit to loving this trend – partly because I love bold colours and, party because being a ‘Clear’ colouring type, I certainly look much better in bold rather than muted and pastel colours. If you too love colour, embrace this trend and have some fun! You can wear one bold colour top-to-toe or choose colour-block styles or colourful patterns where the colours automatically ‘pop’.
4. New Romance
If you prefer a more delicate, feminine look then this trend could be for you – think ruffles, lace, tulle and silk in beautiful neutral and pastel hues. A very elegant and chic look and one which again has been around for quite a while.
Whichever trend you choose to follow, have fun personalising your look and making it really work for YOU.
If you’d like any help working out which colours and styles of clothes do just that, i.e. really suit your personality, colouring, shape and lifestyle, just get in touch. I’d love to help you develop a wardrobe that works for you not just this season, but all year around.
