Spring 2016 Trend Check- Things Worth Investing In

Most fashionistas know the love for runway trends. Every season, it’s a wait to see the best of fashion unfold on the ramp. Spring 2016 collections were revealed last year, and a lot has already been written about the trending ideas. However, if you are on a budget, you would need to find the most wearable and effective ideas. This is a post that talks of all the essentials worth investing for spring, along with some fun ideas to glam up your closet. 

The button-down with a twist: We all have that one button-down white shirt, which easily shifts from the workplace to the casual outings. However, for spring, many designers worked with unique ideas, giving the basic design a quick twist. The white shirts in spring collections were all about using many ideas. From lace and ruffles to cut-outs and even sheer materials, there were quite a few ideas.  White shirts are great for the fall too, so this is more like an investment for your wardrobe. 

The amazing wrap skirt: After a long time, wrap skirts made way to the runways in a variety of different approaches. From a slit to use of muted and often subtle colors, there was something for all. You can check top collections of Andrew Gn, Carven, and Michael Kors to name a few. Keep a check on the hemlines, which fluctuated from being simple, A-line to more asymmetrical designs. Wrap skirts were once reserved for the casual outings, but with the current tweaks, you can even wear one at work. 

The stripes gone bold: Bold and colorful stripes was one of the best trends this year seen at some of the biggest shows including that of Christian Dior, Alexander Wang and Max Mara. If you are fond of simpler stripes, you should see a few looks at Elie Saab, DKNY, and Tommy Hilfiger. Stripes work wonders when you wear a dress or simple skirt with a monotone top. Whatever you choose, make sure to limit the accessories, so that you can avoid a cluttered look. Complete your look with a pair of simple sneakers and a nice pair of shades.

The love for pleats: Pleats, in the more functional ways, emerged as the leading trend this season, and it was great to find so many unique ideas. From the colorful skirts to the more sculptural dresses, this is one runway idea that looked amazing in varied forms. Just add the right twists of a statement necklace or a good pair of danglers, and you are good to go for a fun day with the girls. You can find a few pleat looks at Gucci, Carolina Herrera and Emilio Pucci. 

Until we have another round of fashion talk, stay happy!
