Time for something new in your wardrobe: when the temperatures finally start to rise, these five trends are the order of the day:
A feminine statement. Frills of every flavour won’t just put you in a good mood this spring – they’ll also guarantee sexy silhouettes and shapes. At Emporio Armani they are skilfully applied to waistlines, while they’re used more extravagantly at Brunello Cucinelli, where they make an appearance on long skirts.
But it’s not all about romance: combining sporty with comfy is the raison d’être of athleisure. Sport shoes are a must, worn with trousers and tops familiar from sport fashion. At Louis Vuitton, for example, an elaborate coat is teamed with sporty shorts, whereas the outfit by Etro – a crop top paired with leggings – looks perfect for your next yoga session.
Animal prints are celebrating a comeback on the international catwalks. Whether leopard, tiger, snake or zebra, this spring you can go on a fashion safari. Especially in the collections of Bottega Veneta and Prada.
It wouldn’t be spring without flowers coming into bloom. Which means they’re also essential in the world of fashion. Whether on shoulder-exposing flowing floral dresses as at Louis Vuitton or embroidered on denim jackets and skirts at 7 for all Mankind. Floral prints are a classic and no wardrobe is complete without them.
When it comes to rivets and studs, your thoughts probably turn to rock chic. But you’ll have to think again this spring. The styles they’re adorning this season are quite the contrary: elegant and simple outfits are given the X factor with rivets and studs. Unmissable on the catwalks of Bottega Veneta and Kiton.
