Fashion Must Haves for Spring 2015
While DKNY's focus was tribal markings and accessories, Diane Von Furstenberg's theme seemed to be 60s and 70s styles, with the incorporation of lace, flowers, and gingham stripes. Michael Kors portrayed a style of simplicity with shirt and skirt combinations while adding a touch of girly floral designs and stripes. From bold yellow to black and white, get ready for spring 2015!
This year, there are many new trends that will be showing up in stores across the US. Gingham prints--small plaid, bold colors--will be represented far and wide. These prints are great because they can be incorporated into working ensembles and easily turned chic for after work. Other prints you can expect to see are girly floral (like last year), tribal markings (don't forget accessory pieces in this style), and daring animal prints (further than leopard and zebra, think scorpions and peacocks). From that we move onto lines: stripes that make a statement because placement is everything this season, as well as different color contours incorporating a touch of style and vibrancy into your otherwise bland black top.
70s style hints of silhouettes and flared pants, as well as colored sued pieces will make a big impression this year as well. Wide legged baggy jeans and culottes are coming back strong. For tops the focus seems to be on off the shoulder or one shoulder pieces, sporty tops and polo shirts, as well as high collared type shirts for both work and street. Trench-coats are a staple, both poncho and kimono type, both mid-length and short. Trench-dresses are making an appearance, as well as shirt dresses, fit and flare dresses, the continuation of the A-line mini, and midi skirts. Apron skirts are making a big impression on the runway and can be layered on top of pencil skirts and even pants. Military pieces are making their way back with tops, jackets, and even some dresses that are sure to please.
Whatever you choose, be sure to pick up an obi belt to add flare to any outfit. They are medium in size and can be added to any outfit for instant flattering of your waist! Look for fringy additives, silky pockets, sheer and chiffon pieces, and don't forget a chic blazer to add some sophistication and sass in one! So get to shopping, girls, because spring is right around the corner!
