Spring Trends to Start Wearing Now

From ruffles to fringe to jumpsuits and mini skirts, the fashion shown on the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks were far too many to associate as trends without some serious thought. Now that we’ve had time to reconcile what impressed us across the various fashion metropolises, it’s time to uncover our favorite trends for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.

Pajama Dressing

Similar to the popular camisole/negligee trend from the ‘90s, dressing like you’re ready for bed rather than a night out is in again. The Emilio Pucci Spring 2016 collection featured flouncy dresses with lace cutouts, which creative director Massimo Giorgetti styled over chunky knit sweaters for a covered up alternative to the skimpy trend. While Céline went full on slumber party for its show at Paris Fashion Week, featuring slip-dresses with sheer skirts and (very) low lace cleavage. 

Cold Shoulders

This is not your MO for someone who steals your parking spot. Cold shoulders are what we’re calling the off-the-shoulder trend seen across fashion weeks on both sides of the Atlantic. Givenchy paired another of the season’s trend, pajama dressing, with bare shoulders, for a look that’s doubly in style.

It made our intro for a reason. Ruffles—billowy, structured, demure—were all over the runways of fashion week. Elegant ruffles felt like an extension of fall’s Victorian vibes, like what we’re currently seeing from the likes of Givenchy. Though Proenza Schouler Spring 2016 did it up differently, with bell-shaped sleeves, peplum and shoulder embellishments so flowy they looked like waves.

Embroidery and Embellishments

Forget accessories! Next season’s garments will be brimming with adornments that double as accents themselves. Loewe Spring 2016 featured some unexpected embellishments, like shattered glass on pants and spikes as the trim on a pencil skirt, while jeweled necklines were aplenty at the Giambattista Valli show.
