Spring/Summer Trends

I know you've already seen all the 'Top trends for spring' in the magazines, but I've looked through countless amount of shows and choosen the best photos in my opinion on what are the best trends for spring/summer.


First is romance, whith feathers, frills and ruffles.


You probably know that florals will be big for spring, everything from Balenciaga's oversized florals to the small floral prints at Luella. Thakoon had an irregular print that's a bit different.

Sheer fabrics are a bit hard to copy in real life, but they were all over the runways. I really like when a strong colour is worn underneath a see through fabric, as seen at Jil Sander.

Flared skirts that embrace the waist are going to be the skirt trend for summer. They can be short or hit above the knee, and they have a lot of volume.

The fifth trend is the African inspiration (which I've posted about before), with the safari and tribal trends.

Belts were skinny on the runways, cinching the waist of wide shapes. They were often in brown shades and either knotted or folded.

I'm loving this trend, the cropped pants. They hit the ankle and were folded in most cases. They have a casual vibe to them.

Lastly it's the arty prints. Dresses almost looked like paintings.

I love ruffles, flowers and color in all my dresses. I own a very large collection of vintage and almost all look like these.

Honestly, I'm not into sheers, but I reckon cropped pants and florals are really nice. I can never pull of flared skirts, sadly.
