Though summer’s warm and sunny weather is coming to a halt, there’s no need to dread the arrival of winter; after all, it means new fashion, and before too long, spring. To give us all a little something to look forward to, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite runway trends from New York’s Spring 2016 ready-to-wear shows.
Sheer details were at the forefront of spring’s biggest shows, offering a fresh and edgy take on spring dressing. Jason Wu’s pristine organza inserts looked fresh at Hugo BOSS, Riccardo Tisci’s see-through lace had gothic appeal at Givenchy and Marchesa’s mesh-infused eveningwear delivered a dose of serious punk-appeal.
Popularized by Rosie Assoulin and interpreted shortly afterward by a host of designers, it’s clear that fashion’s obsession with exposed shoulders isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. Prabal Gurung’s eye-catching ribbed orange dress is the pick we’re coveting most.
’90s slip dresses staged a major comeback during New York Fashion Week. These modern updates showcased a sultry, understated brand of sensuality and heaps of luxurious sheen.
Taking inspiration from their favourite holiday destinations, designers injected a bit of island living spice into their collections, with bright colours and prints, plus a healthy dose of bronzer for a healthy sheen that has us craving the beach.
