Staying on top of constantly changing trends can be difficult. It's hard to tell what will be in style from day to day or from season to season. It can be extremely overwhelming. Never fear! The Blush and Bashful Blog is here! We've compiled a list of the hottest new spring trends so that all you have to do is go to your closet (or your local boutique *wink wink*) and pick out an outfit that will make you the talk of the town.
First things first, let's talk about color. This spring you will most likely see an assortment of bright colors as well as a few neutrals. This will make it incredibly easy to pick out an outfit. All you have to do is pick a bright staple, pair it with a few neutrals to tone it down, and you're good to go!
These colors are projected to be the most popular colors this spring season according to Pantone's Fashion Color Report for 2016.
Now it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty. Style. These are the most popular styles that have been showing up on the runway by the most popular designers. Pay attention, ladies. We project that you will be seeing these styles everywhere in the near future.
The first fashion trend that we're going to talk about may be one of the hottest this year. It's reffered to as the "Cold Shoulder" and I'm borderline obsessed with it. It features bare shoulder cut-outs on an otherwise basic staple making it an instant head-turner. Just imagine all the places you could wear these tops. They would be perfect for barbecue's, ballgames, or even date night. They are extremely versatile making the transition from day to night seamless.
Mugler Spring 2016 Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 Milly Spring 2016
Everyone has one of these in their closets. It's your typical white shirt, right? Wrong! Designers are taking everyone's favorite white shirt and giving it a fashion-forward makeover. You will want to have one of these classic staples in your closet this season.
Amanda Wakeley Spring 2016 Fendi Spring 2016 Proenza Schouler Spring 2016
This next trend has me pretty excited. It's called "Leather and Lace." No, that doesn't mean you have to sew your grandmother's doily onto your leather leggings. It's simply combining simple, sweet fabrics with edgier pieces. It's the best of both worlds because it brings out the sugar and spice in all of us.
Michael Kors Spring 2016 Tods Spring 2016 Valentino Spring 2016
Pleats are making a comeback this year! And it's more attractive than you think. Whether designers are using them for structuring or decoration purposes, they're a great way to add interest to an outfit without having to over accessorize.
Hermes Spring 2016 Carolina Herrera Spring 2016 Tanya Taylor Spring 2016
Who doesn't love the simple sweetness that ruffles add to outfits? They go with everything! In case you were wondering if your favorite ruffle top is still in style, it most definitely is.
Rosie Assoulin Spring 2016 Roberto Cavalli Spring 2016 Ralph Lauren Spring 2016
I don't know about you, but I, for one, am obsessed with glitter. That's why I am so very excited to announce this next spring trend. All things sparkly are in style this season. The designers are making it extremely easy to glam up your outfit while keeping the accessories simple.
Carolina Herrera Spring 2016 Gucci Spring 2016 Temperley Spring 2016
Stripes are so versatile. There are so many different styles and so many ways to incorporate them into any outfit. Just add a stripe into your wardrobe this spring to make sure that your closet is filled with stylish essentials.
DKNY Spring 2016 Elie Saab Spring 2016 Stella McCartney Spring 2016
This next trend is definitely one for the books. Designers have included Victorian-era inspired pieces into their spring lines and I am digging it. The higher necklines and ruffles bring back the classic style of simpler times. Be sure to grab one of these pieces because we are taking style back to the 1830's.
Zimmermann Spring 2016 Alexander McQueen Spring 2016 Phillip Lim Spring 2016
Two words: Wrap skirts. These will be so hot this season, and for good reason. Not only do they add an asymmetrical twist to an outfit, they also flatter any shape. You will definitely want to add one of these beauties to your wardrobe this spring.
Altuzarra Spring 2016 Andrew Gn Spring 2016 Michael Kors Spring 2016
Ties, belts, and sashes are popping up all over the runway. This is a great way to break up an outfit and to flatter your figure by giving you a beautiful hourglass shape. Sorry ladies, it looks like the over-sized, baggy clothes are out this season. Time to flatter your figure, not hide it!
David Koma Spring 2016 Michael Kors Spring 2016 Alexis Mabille Spring 2016
