My Top 5 Spring/Summer Trends

SS 15 TrendsFor some of my readers I know it’s still freezing outside, but lucky for me I’m in Barbados soaking up the sunshine (sorry didn’t mean to rub it in). However, due to this weather I’m totally excited and looking forward for the fashion for spring/summer 2015 to hit the stores as some stores are already trying to get rid of their winter stock to make room. Based on what was seen on the catwalks across the fashion weeks from the major fashion capitals five main trends were very prominent among the designs. So I decided to give you trendsetters a heads up about what will be hot this season so you’ll know what pieces you should be looking for to add to and what to keep in your wardrobe before you hit the stores and become overwhelmed. Fortunately, some of the trends from spring/summer 2014 will be still fashionable this year, like florals, sheer, crop tops and the 70’s influence. So, without further ado, here is a look at the top 5 spring/summer fashion trends that you’re gonna want to get your hands on in 2015:

Top 5  Spring/Summer Trends 

Florals

I know you must be thinking “Florals? For spring?  That’s very groundbreaking.” Well, we all just have to accept that florals are here to stay, just like peanut butter is always affiliated with jelly, it would be awkward to go through the season without this staple.

Sheer

Designers seemed to be in loved with how they can play with sensuality and still make it sophisticated. This trend seems like it never going away either, come on we must admit that we like the idea that it make us feel like we’re wearing nothing. However, remember to keep it chic, an opt more for sheer panels instead of head to toe all over sheer.

Gingham

Notoriously affiliated with tablecloths, this print is in for a comeback that will best any picnic tablecloth. Whether blown up or shrunk down in size it gives a retro and vintage feel.

Bohemian

Put on your flowers headbands because the hippies are coming to town, well, the Retro-Fab ones from the 70’s I mean. The new “boho” look for spring 2015 includes flowing Bohemian inspired prints, trapeze dresses, tie-dyes and lots of colour.

Crop Tops

The “Red Carpet Gown” is getting a run for it’s money as more fashionistas are preferring to pair a crop top with lady-like skirts or well-tailored trousers giving just a subtle peek of midriff skin.

Happy New Year

There is nothing like a fresh calendar year….. a brand new 365 days  

This is not another “New Year, New Me” post because we all know that most of the times we end up setting goals that we somehow manage to not complete most of them by year-end anyways….. le sigh. Instead this is just a short post from me to you hoping all of you enjoyed your holidays and had a blast ringing in the new year. I can’t believe the holidays are basically over already, but on the brighter side 2015 has so much in store.  With that being said, let’s not rob ourselves of happiness by rushing through 2015 trying to fulfill lifetime goals in a year’s time but rather live one day at a time and enjoy the moments while we work our way closer to becoming a better version of ourselves.  So, let’s set our eyes to the horizon and look towards the fashionable future.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my trendsetters and may 2015 bring you and your family good health and a lot of happiness!
