With the big shows New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week having just wrapped, we bring you our favourite wearable trends from the spring/summer 2015 runways. We expect you to give these trends some serious consideration in about eight months but in the meantime, as the weather (should) begin to cool, wrap up and think warm thoughts.
All Thing Sheer
In a move on from the super high slit of summer 2014, the new sexy look is all about showing skin through sheer panels. We saw these strategically placed demure panels in abundance on the runways at Alberta Ferretti and Versace.
The wide leg cropped pant slipped back into style this summer and we anticipate more from them next year. Sometimes trends take a little while to blossom, but we expect more people to embrace this old-new trend as seen on the runways at Jil Sander and Sportmax.
All white was a pretty common thread throughout Fashion Week. Victoria Beckham and BCBG Max Azria all showed off head-to-toe monochrome looks with their own little twists.
The sixties is an inspiration for Fall/Winter 2014, but next spring the seventies will be the era of the season. The runways throughout the Fashion Weeks at times resembled an episode of “That '70s Show” with bellbottoms at Derek Lam and cropped flares at Louis to name but a few.
It may be fair to say that florals are no longer a trend, but a classic with its own variation from season to season. Next year’s incarnation of floral patterns is all about being big and bold. Thom Brown and Michael Kors were among those inspired by the new pretty floral arrangement.
It became clear pretty early on that denim was on a power trip down the runway. Some of fashion’s biggest names, among them Burberry and Gucci have decided that next summer is having an indigo fashion moment.
