Fashion is known to reinvigorate itself as designers launch new trends whilst bringing back some old favourites. Expect 2015 to usher in some exciting fashion trends as top designers compete to up the ante. We predict five top fashion looks that you can work into your wardrobe…
TREND 1: Gingham
Think Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz! You may think of this as American barn-style dressing, but ‘Print of Spring’ has hit the runway like a storm and has joined fashion’s mainstream for the upcoming season. With designers such as Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Altuzarra and Ralph Lauren featuring it on their catwalks, this print look is incorporated in everything from dresses all the way to pants.
TREND 2: Suede
We have seen this trend get stronger over the years and it has now reached a point where it is becoming something you can wear all year round – kind of like leather. This fabric has dominated on the runways of Gucci, Valentino, Jason Wu and Derek Lam – but with interesting twists. It has been used in deep, rich shades like purple and green and is now making an appearance on trench coats, A-line skirts and dresses.
TREND 3: Fringe
The fringe trend won’t go away. Although it echoes classic styles from the 20’s and 70’s, it is updated into modern day chic in eveningwear. The easy motion of the fringe has been seen on dresses, skirts and tops in fashion shows this season. Designers such as Givenchy, Fendi, Proneza Schouler have all embraced fringe in their designs.
TREND 4: Festival Chick
Loose fit, draped cut, and printed chiffons epitomize flow. From jackets to vests, this distinctive style is being seen in all forms of fashion from designers like Saint Laurent, Gucci, Christian Dior and Roberto Cavalli.
TREND 5: Denim
Denim never gets old! It comes this season in all shades of colours, and shows that there is more to it than just jeans. It is now combined with materials such as lace, jewels and patches. The fashion variations of denim are endless and versatile, as demonstrated by Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Stella McCartney and Lacoste.
