Now that we’ve entered the new year we will soon find ourselves entering spring in no time! Why don’t we take your minds off puffer jackets and snow boots for a minute and let’s focus our attention on spring trends. Spring trends have already graced the runways a few months back and we’ve covered some of these trends in a previous feature such as crochet, colourful leather and vests. But why don’t we delve deeper and let’s take a break from our bundling up for a minute to check out the other trends that will be invading our closets soon. Chance are we might already own a trend or two, otherwise there is a lot of shopping to be done.
1 || Come Undone
The undone look is still reigning strong from autumn. Think unfinished pieces with unhemmed edges, patchworks, inside-out sewing and hybrid dresses and suits. Sacai did it best but there were also interesting takes from Balmain, and the new London-based designer Dilara Findikoglu.
2 || Thigh-High Slit
The sexy thigh-high split is aggressively back as seen at Jason Wu, Dion Lee, Prabal Gurung, and Brandon Maxwell. Can’t see it now but when the temperatures start to heat up you’ll be happy with this trend. Can’t imagine revealing so much leg?? Don’t worry, for more coverage you can pair your skirt with denim or linen trousers and you’ll be a perfect street style.
3 || Feathers
One of the most playful trends this coming season is the feather trend and more precisely feather dresses. Seen at the runways of Richard Quinn, Burberry, and Valentino including others this trend is seen in all shapes and colors; from marvellous long sleeved versions to short and puffy numbers.
4 || Sheer It
Chiffon and tulle make perfect fabrics for spring; light and breezy and oh-so-ethereal. If you’re planning on going all out make sure you invest in the prettiest undergarments. Check out Sally LaPointe, Ulla Johnson, Bevza, and Oscar de la Renta for inspiration.
5 || Disco
The pointed disco collar is one of the major comeback trends to start the decade with. These 70s-inspired collars were seen at Paco Rabanne, Louis Vuitton, and Fendi, and were also partnered with 70’s-inspired outfits… some were wild and some were quite wearable such as Fendi’s example.
6 || Fringe Again But….
In the previous seasons fringe was seen on dresses and jackets and such, this coming season however, fringe is making a comeback …But in an entirely new fashion. Fringe for spring has seen a makeover where you would see glimmering fringed skirts, blazers, capes, and where fringe was also sported glamorously at Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, and Christian Siriano.

7 || All-Day Sequins
For all the fashion divas out there… now you get to wear your sequins during the day without shame! Now you can literally own the stage and flaunt your flare after acquiring Ralph Lauren’s, Adam Lippes’, Sally LaPointe’s, and Cynthia Rowley’s stamp of approval for wearing daytime sequins.
8 || Long-ish Denim Skirts
Denim lovers out there would be thrilled to know that denim this season will hit a longer hem…via a skirt of course. The denim skirt can be easily dressed up or down, and can take you from morning to night. There were many iterations of the denim skirt on the runways; Stella McCartney’s midi skirt exuded femininity with its front slit, while Givenchy’s version was raw hemmed and featured a unique pockets-in-the-front touch. Celine’s version was a tiered printed number that is so on trend.
9 || Color Blocking
Color blocking or two-toned dressing was a refreshing trend on the runways. There were maxi dresses with spaghetti straps at Roland Mouret, while Ports 1961 embraced modest fashion by merging reds and pinks together.
