The ‘Great Seven’
Top Spring Fashion Trends
Designers are challenging us to amp it up with coordinated matchy matchy suiting with clean lines. The suit has become a major fashion trend for spring. Monochrome is a key trend this season. Matching jackets, dresses and pants complete this spring look. Jacket silhouettes range from short to long, fitted to floaty. Pants are wider with a normal length or slimmer and cropped. Dresses are sleek. Fabrics are solid, checked or striped in these new spring suits.
COLOUR COLOUR COLOUR
Bright Colours – Soft Pastel Colours – Medium Sorbet Colours all appear this spring. Designer favourite are Banana, Pale Green, Light Blue, Light Pink, Lavender, Bright Yellow, Vibrant Red, Sun drenched Coral and Bright Pink. The colour statement is an important initiator for spring.
Despite the drive for colour black and navy are also prominent for the season. The classics always stand out as dramatic and sophisticated and mix and match so well with colour or neutrals.
Classic pieces will be simply restaged this spring as designers play with colour, cut, motif transfers, athletic wear details, piping, striping, dots and checks, to give an avant-garde appeal. For example striped tapes and knitted cuffs show the current mix of classic and sport wear.
Great Fashion = Feeling Great
Keep it powerful, keep it comfortable and keep it easy and straightforward but do indulge your inner style. That is the mantra for clothes for women juggling careers, family, and everything else life throws at you.
This trend started a couple of seasons ago and it´s still important for material statements and detail workmanship. The jean, legging, hoodie, striping down the leg, knit cuffs, statement sneakers all play an important role in business casual and casual fashion.
There is no denying that with the popularity of more casual dressing in the work place denim has become a wardrobe essential. Keep it business by mixing it with vegan leather or suede blazers and knits offering an opportunity to look casual but chic. Leggings worn with long blazers or long tops also continue to be popular with designers. The advice for casual motifs: always add a great shoe to dress up the look.
