Spring and summer look to be uplifting and vibrant by offering a wide range of colorful and stylish mix of trends.  This season is all about fun, color and bold styles as fashion reiterates its homage to the 80’s.  

The most notable trends came with: big shoulders, puffed sleeves, and bright colors strolling down the runways in dramatic style. Trench coats, pencil skirts, shorts, suits, high waists and belted looks are in this year.

Designer denim, plaids, florals and plastic fabrications are staples of the season’s silhouettes. The boldest showing of such was at Chanel, with an array of pieces in clear PVC – from bags to boots.

At Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen, head to toe dark denim looks paraded in updated, polished editions. Check out our Chanel version of a denim suit.

                                  

Signature Burberry plaids are in vogue with Prada, McQueen, and Miu Miu joining in the fun. Western influences left their mark at Versace and Celine. While fancy feathers and fringe, adorned everything from accessories to dresses at Proenza Schouler, Dior and Calvin Klein.

But the 80’s are not the only source of inspiration this season; the disco era continued its influence with designer additions of sophisticated and modern versions of sequins and glitter. From shoes at Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs’ evening gowns, to Gucci’s daytime dresses, glitter illuminated the catwalks.  

Though bold and bright colors dominated the runways, there was also a rainbow of soft and sweet candy colored pastels. Top trending colors include lavender and yellow in all styles across the board. From suits to shorts, Easter colors bloomed at Hermes and Michael Kors.

In summary, Spring/Summer comes in a colorful display of fashion for all. Color is hot and so is dressing up. The excess and glamour of the past is back with a modern twist in the mix. Denim is worthy of power suits and casual dresses worthy of sequins. Plus, you can never go wrong with the classic styles in florals. These are always a trend.
