10 Key Trends: Spring/Summer 2016

Secret Slip 
The season sees the return of underwear as outerwear in the form of the must-have slip dress. Combining slinky satin materials and lace trims, this sensual style is too good to sleep in.

Nineties Nostalgia
Every season has a dominating decade and this S/S is the return of the 90s. Heavily influenced by the grunge and sport vibe of the decade, key pieces come in the form of oversize denim and jersey basics.

Shoulder Statements
This season is all about the shoulder and arm details. From off-the shoulder to puff shoulder, the outfit's statement should be made from the shoulder detail. 

Boss, Hood by Air, Simone Rocha

Sparkle and Shine
Sequins, metallics and all things shiny are key this season. From the statement sequin dress to the embellished jumper, a bit of shine can be added to any outfit. 

Isabel Marant, Sonia Rykiel, Loewe

Ridiculous Ruffles
One of the more difficult trends this season is the return of the ruffles, on a grande scale. From ruffle trims to all-over ruffle styles, it's all about finding the right ruffle balance for you. 

Marques Almeida, Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli

Relaxed Romance
Florals and ladylike styles are a staple every S/S, however this season sees the rise of soft romantic styles with a relaxed attitude. 

Alexander McQueen, Dior, Rodarte

Strictly Stripes
Often a key print for S/S, stripes this season have gone mis-matched. From contrasting colours to line width, there's no fun in single stripes. 

Prada, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney

Dyed Dream
The influence of the 90s has also led to the return of the tie-dye. However, this season the tie-dye has grown up and become sophisticated.

Street Style
Lady-like styles are heavily contrasted this season with styles influenced by the street. From baggy cargo inspired trousers to hoodies paired with heels, toughen up your look this season with a street edge. 

Balenziaga, Vetements, Versace

Old-School Hollywood Heroes
American inspirations were seen across the catwalks in a variety of styles. From 80s rock n roll to 60s movie star, old-school Hollywood styles are set to inspire next season's pieces. Key looks will come from 60s lady-like shapes and the return of varsity styles. 

Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten, Lacoste
