The trends in color for this spring are calming blues and iced pastels, but black seems to have an influence as well. Fabrics include mesh, eyelet, lace or any other openwork technique. Metallics were present in the runways too as well as slashed or cut out fabric. Expect to see floral bows, and subtle fringe. Florals in patterns are reminiscent of English teacups, enchanted countryside and pastoral towns. It also looks like gauzy, sheer and semi sheer make the formal cut. Dresses are boxy, short and embellished with rhinestones and sequins.
You will also find 90"s minimalism with its clean lines. The modern approach to this look is high square necklines and sculptured peplums.
At last, preppy has entered the fashion scene. Polo collared shirts, cardigans and button downs were paired with miniskirts.
Goodbye small handbags: this year features oversized shoulder bags that hold everything. Oversized earrings as well. As far as shoes, sling back heels and pumps walked the runway!
