All of the haute couture designers that create the upcoming trends for a season had something distinct to show on the runways for Spring / Summer 2016. From off-the-shoulder necklines to pleated and stripy accents, the 2016 Spring / Summer collections have borrowed from the past and took it to the future.
Once a staple piece for men (also known as a poet shirt in 17th and 18th century), these shirts are now becoming the most diverse (and easiest) style to wear this season. The best part is that a white ruffled shirt can be paired pretty much with any type of jewellery that fits your personal style. Whether you are looking for a chunky necklace or if you want a more subdued thin yellow gold chain and pendant, the options are endless. With this effortless way to show that you know what’s hot for this season.
Even though pyjamas and night-gowns are meant for a bed time, designers are bringing it out as the perfect staple underneath a blazer or as a full outfit. From lace negligées to two part silky sets, pyjama-inspired pieces are making an impact this Spring / Summer season. With such a delicate piece, you will be able to pair a few pieces of jewellery to really set the style. You may want to choose a piece that is just as dainty as your clothing, so you could opt for small studded earrings, a thin silver bracelets, and delicate chain with a small pendant.
If you are looking for the best way to make a statement and an impact on your wardrobe, stripes are going to be your best friend. You will be able to take advantage of striped dresses, blouses, skirts, shoes, and even unique pieces of jewellery. If stripes are a bit too much for you but you would still like to keep on with this trend, consider adding a striped flint piece of jewellery to your outfit. It offers a subdued and soft stripy appearance, but in a more contemporary manner.
Another huge trend that you’ll see a lot of this year is vintage-inspired clothing. With neckline bows, multi-layering and embroidery, it’s a retro inspired Spring / Summer 2016. With modern influences such as sheer textures and popping fabrics, there’s a unique appeal that has never been explored before in the fashion industry. With such richly decorated outfits, it is good to opt out for minimalistic accessories, or to move to the other and choose some extravagant pieces, but never for the middle.
