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.

Summer Á La Mode

Summer is fast approaching and we all can’t wait till it gets here. It’s that time of year to bare legs and show off shoulders; moreover time stock up on swimsuits, sandals, sunglasses and hats.  But just because it is the time to relax, doesn’t mean we’re going let our fashion guard down.

So it’s very important we know which trend is hot and which is out,staying current and being fashion forward.

WHAT’S HOT THIS SUMMER:

  • Colour-Blocking was a very vibrant trend,  but has given way to the new mix-match look of  bold colours with prints.

  • The maxi look took over the runways and street fashion but as the heat turns up the mid-calf look is coming in.

  • As the neutral camel colours are fading away, the neon colours are lighting up the fashion scene.

  • It seems we’re still loving the safari life as the animal prints and tribal prints are still big.

  • Even though that these colours aren’t loud they are still pretty and sweet, so pastels colours are in.

  • Women all around are so captivated by the sophisticated Peplum look they can’t get enough.

  • The flower power is continuing to hold strong among the prints.

  • Looks like the dare to bare is still on as sheer is becoming a year-round trend.

  • The mullet hem have women crazy for the high-low look on shirts, skirts and dresses.

  • True classics are hard to be forgotten so stripes are still big.

As we all know that some trends come and go by quickly and even make comebacks, so I recommend that you DON’T throw out your clothes but  DO keep them at the back of your wardrobe for a later date.
