With New Year just around the corner, Luxe Models reveals five exciting trends you need to watch out for as we move into spring/summer 2016.
If you thought fashion’s love affair with the 70s was over, think again. Fashion month’s spring/summer 2016 show proved that 70s-style suede – the must have material of the decade that featured at shows from Jonathan Saunders and Rebecca Minkoff, is set to become huge at the beginning of next year.
If you watched the Emilia Wickstead, Erdem and J.W. Anderson shows closely this time around, you’ll have noticed that modesty’s set to make a comeback. Classic Victorian styles such as high-collar necklines, puffy sleeves, bold lace and ruffles will be everywhere come spring.
We thanked our lucky stars when flat shoes came roaring back into fashion, and it looks as though the trend is here to stay… at least until spring/summer 2016 anyway. If you want to nail this one right we suggest you check out brands such as Edun, Victoria Beckham and Trademark that have jazzed the footwear staple up for the modern market.
The revival of the 70s has re-popularised high-rise trousers. Designers such as Derek Lam and Rosie Assoulin showed that they’re tired of the trend by switching to classic 90s low-rise trousers for their spring/summer 2016 collections.
Cut out tops
It’s never been more fashionable to embrace the subtle sex appeal of bared shoulders, and this is set to continue for quite a while yet. We noticed that several designers at Fashion month spring/summer 2016, including Wes Gordon and Rachel Zoe, championed the look with cool cut out tops and dresses that are bound to be all over the high street next year.
If our instincts turn out to be correct, these style are destined to be huge in spring/summer 2016. We suggest you burn a little of that Christmas cash in the sales and start stocking up now, so you can get yourself ready to craft a few killer outfits next year!
