Spring-Summer 2016 Fashion Trends

No Comment

The 2016 Spring-Summer collections showed the imagination of designers, who sought, in their own way, to surprise the audience. HoWomen decided to collect in this publication all major spring-summer 2016 fashion trends in order to make it easier to decide what to buy this season, and what items from previous collections remain relevant.

We analyzed many collections and made the following conclusion: One of the main trends of spring-summer 2016 is the nudity. Summer is the time when we want to throw off all that’s superfluous. Some designers offer a frank exposure, others have opted for modesty, femininity and charm. The 2016 spring-summer collection has demonstrated the desire of designers to emphasize the bare shoulders.

Bare shoulders

Baring beautiful shoulders is a real feminine trick. In order to do this, you can wear a bustier dress, which already more than one season is offered by designers or you can drop low enough the neckline line exposing the shoulders almost to the armholes, while retaining the sleeves and cuffs in the form of ruffles, flounces, “wings”, etc.

You can show the beauty of the shoulders in another more modest way making for example cutouts on the shoulders, leaving in this case a deep décolleté. Such exposure of the shoulders is present several seasons in a row and it can be afforded by every woman and every girl.

Spring-Summer 2016 Fashon Trends: Deep V Neckline

The deep V neckline from 2016 spring-summer collections sometimes reaches the waist area. The dizzy cutout magically attracts the eye, and does not give a chance to stay unnoticed.

Transparent chiffon skirts

An erotic component of outfits become transparent skirts, shiny and developing trails made of transparent chiffon and organza. The multilayered transparency looks very luxurious because of the fact that one skirt overrides another, or it is simply worn over pants, etc.

How else to attract other’s attention? Baring the shoulders with a deep neckline or a cutout to up the waist area, with slits on the skirts, transparent weightless fabrics or insolent naked skin?

What if to attract other’s attention with a brave cut or entangling ourselves from head to toe in ruffles? It turns out that there is also the mesh. Translucent mesh leaves room for imagination, and the same as in Balmain collection, it fascinates and attracts glances. Olivier Rousteing is a true magician in stitches, including mesh.

Many designers’ proposals are inspired from the memories of the 90’s…

The 90’s will be remembered for a long time and designers decided to recall them otherwise. These are crumpled fabrics, “denim” patterns on the fabric, mesh, shabby leather jackets, long sleeves (sleeves longer than hands), punk and grunge style, military and biker style, animal print…

Asymmetry and multilayering

Asymmetry and multilayering of fabrics with different textures, overlapping paintings are something we have already seen but in their imaginations, designers want to go even further and create outfits with unfinished cut, some of the designs appearing as some “guest from the past.”

Looking at them we may think that this cut can be even mastered together with your girlfriend. We advise to see the designs of those designers who leave us to be elegant both in asymmetry and incompleteness.

The 2016 Color Palette

What color should be called the most important color of the spring-summer season? Summer is the time for vacations and, therefore, the most carefree and cheerful time of the year. To feel the brightness of feelings and emotions in the new season all the bright colors will be relevant.

Choose a color that gives you pleasure, a sense of joy, to which you want to watch and watch. If you experience such feeling, than this color is definitively yours. However, after viewing the collection, we can note that in addition to the bright and cheerful hues of the season 2016, on the podium proudly march white, green, red, blue, yellow and silver.

Black and black-and-white combinations do not look boring, but impressive and elegant, and mostly in a variety of geometric shapes and proportions. Red is the symbol of a bright eventful life, courage and sensuality. If you want to be the center of attention, then wear a red outfit. The combination of white with red or blue, and sometimes all three colors, evoke specific feelings and emotions, and sometimes a sense of pride…
