The seasons are shifting, bringing not only a change of weather but a fresh round of fashions as well. This spring's trends range from feminine dresses to colorful accessories and everything in between, providing shoppers with all the necessary pieces for a wardrobe revamp. To get your spring 2016 wardrobe stared, here are five of the top trends for the new season.
Shades of Orange
Think of orange as the new neutral of the spring season – use it as the base of your ensemble via bright slacks, wear it head-to-toe with a shirt dress and trench coat topper, or incorporate just a pop of it with bold shoes or a bag. And while it is an admittedly loud color, spring’s orange trend comes in a variety of hues, from light sherbet shades to more saturated options. The various tones in the orange spectrum ensure there’s a shade for everyone, making this trend easy to love and even easier to wear.
Off the Shoulder Silhouettes
This particular neckline had a fashion moment not too long ago, but this season, designers are taking off-the-shoulder styles to the next level. Equally playful and sexy, the silhouette has been spotted on everything from crop tops to midi dresses. What’s more, the off the shoulder look is universally flattering and surprisingly versatile. As Vogue writes, whether your style is classic, romantic, or bohemian, an off-the-shoulder blouse can go from day to night, leaves plenty of room for accessorizing (think drop earrings or a choker necklace), and offers a subtle way to bare some skin for spring and summer.
What more could a girl ask for?
With an unforgettable shape, structured design, and variety of sizes available, the half-moon bag is sure to quickly become a spring favorite. Leading the pack was Victoria Beckham’s roomy design, which premiered in September at New York Fashion week. Soon after, other top designers were following suit, showcasing styles in the same sought-after shape. Whether you love the look of a mini half-moon or believe the mantra “bigger is better” could not be any truer when it comes to your purse, this trend is one that will not disappoint.
The Slip Dress
Lingerie-inspired garments are once again at the forefront of the fashion world, with the slip dress topping the trends for spring. Slinky and seductive, this style is certainly not for the shy. Wear alone or underneath a chunky knit sweater, choose a midi or a maxi length, go for ultra-feminine lace details or keep things simple and modern – the options are endless with the slip dress. For a full range of the trend's offerings, check out Lyst's collection of dresses. The sampling of different designers provides an in-depth look at the fabrics, styles, and details that this season’s slip dress provides.
Fun and laid-back, the huarache sandal is the perfect antidote to a long and dreary winter. According to Brit + Co, this traditional woven shoe from Mexico is getting a fashion-forward makeover with bright color, buckles, and platform heels – details that are made for the sunny and warm months headed our way. With equal parts flair and function, this style can easily go from backyard barbecue to spring wedding, making them the go-to shoe for any occasion.
