Spring is the perfect time for a new beginning and a new wardrobe. I may have a penchant for all the structured tweed, ankle boots and neck accessories that winter had to offer, but I’m definitely ready to shed those heavy winter layers, and trade them in for dresses and other lightweight garments in order to embrace the blossoming, new season. And, what I love most about this time of the year is the plethora of trends that have come back to life. A Lux shared their must-have trends from the the spring/summer collections, and they were anything but disappointing.
Additionally, leading fashion aggregator, Lyst explains, “While true style isn’t seasonal there’s nothing quite like the feeling of the spring switch up,” so I’ve rounded up some of my top picks for dress styles that I have believe will score major points in the fashion department this season.
The Casual Slip-on
Negligees are no longer confined to the bedroom with designers showcasing their individual take on lingerie that can be easily incorporated into streetwear. Underwear as outerwear was the lead concept in SS16, as mentioned by Marie Claire, so this season is all about highlighting your sexiness in delicate fabrics such as silk, lace, satin and see-through chiffon.
Pretty in Pleats
As much as we all love the ‘70s, the reign of carwash pleats seems to be over as we transition into softer silhouettes with ladylike pleats. Embrace your feminine side with light and airy materials that are perfect for the mildly warm climate.
In addition to the delicate pleats, romantic maxis will also add some extra femininity to your wardrobe. Maxis have always been popular in the spring and summer time, so it’s no surprise that these flowy pieces will be sticking around for the next few months. For a breezy look, Lauren Conrad suggests you style your maxi with heeled booties and a crossbody bag.
The ‘X’ Silhouette
There’s something quite sultry about showing off your shoulders, and the past spring/summer shows proved how empowering off-shoulder dresses are. However, this time around you’ll see them in a halter variation, which will draw even more attention to our shoulders.
