SS16 strutted down the catwalk last September and is now emerging on the high street and in-store as we wave farewell to Autumn Winter collections. We spot some of the key trends and take a look at pieces spotted from New York to Paris. How will you wear your new season wardrobe?
Slip dresses and lingerie inspired wear for a sexy take on summer.
Net mesh for a subtle flash of skin or the ultimate reveal.
Frothy frills and tulle tiers, this season is a ruffle-a-plenty zone. Frou frou is the name of this seasons game.
TIED UP IN BOWS
Knotted, tied or girlie, bows are big business for SS16.
Fashion goes off-shoulder so bare some sexy skin and work the drop shoulder trend.
Give your wardrobe some Spanish style a la Oscar de la Renta or Proenza Schouler to name just two.
THE NEW ROMANTIC
An altogether lighter version of last season’s Victoriana trend. Think high necklines, delicate ruffling and blush tones.
X MARKS THE TOP
High on the neck and cold on the shoulder for this seasons latest update on showing some sexy shoulder.
Fashion goes holey, shredded and frayed for a spring makeover.
Ring a ding, the sleeve is big news this spring. Make yours bell shaped.
THE WHITE SHIRT
The white shirt gets some edge and goes from classic to cool in one easy step.
For a change from muted spring pastels give vivid orange a whirl and brighten up your wardrobe.
Give your sleeves some volume and wear them big.
CHECK IT OUT
Checks get a summer revamp. Lightweight and easy wear.
Go neon or go home. Wear colour bold and flashy and stand out from the crowd.
Florals take a decidedly English turn – blooms go all country garden.
THE NEW STRIPE
Graphic and fashion forward the stripe gets a brazen new look.
For the romantics out there. A decidedly feminine look with provocative undertones.
For all you shiny happy people. It’s time to shimmy into summer with a touch of metal.
Practical fashion at its best. It’s time to fish out that backpack and take to the streets.
The catwalk got creative with neck ties and chokers – time to be inspired.
A major trend this season, we saw chains decorate shoes, bags and clothing.
ON THE FRINGE
Yup more fringing. Tasseled hemlines, trims and boots danced down the catwalk – it’s playful and flirty.
Tulle is not just for kids. Look out for net-a-plenty.
Belted, knotted and tied, rope has it’s moment in the spotlight.
If they don’t hit your shoulder they are not enough. Go big aka Pat Butcher style.
The new way to layer; knot a shirt or knit around your waist for this seasons newest look.
