Summer is around the corner and it’s time that we prepare ourselves on how we can be at our fashionable best this season. From stripes to gingham, ruffles to sheer, you can see a lot of elements this season. We are getting you the some of the hottest International trends of Summer – Spring 2016 so you can incorporate all these into your wardrobe right away. Here’s what the runway has to offer this year!
The Slip Dress
The Slip Dress is going to be one of the biggest trends of this year. Bringing back the 90s romance, slip dresses trimmed with lingerie lace were seen at Celine while the ones in satin and see-through chiffon were seen at Saint Laurent. Also seen were dresses layered over fine knits at Pucci which look quite sexy. Wearing innerwear as outerwear is the highlight of this trend and we are already loving it.
If you liked it, dig into your closet for such pieces or invest in new ones if you don’t have any. You can wear them with shirts or tops underneath to create interesting looks. Pair them with flats to complete the look.

To work this trend, invest in Skirts and dresses in gingham. Wear them with red lips, flat shoes, hats and straight hair and you are ready for a Sunday brunch or a holiday.

Layer a sheer top with something simple and beautiful inside to work this look.
The 90’s fashion seemed like a huge inspiration at the SS’16 which included collections by Yves Saint Laurent and Vetements. The looks featured slip dresses, wellies and oversized jackets which very much take us back to Kate Moss’ personal style. We also saw some sporty street style.

Backpacks have been around for a long time and Burberry decided to take it on another level this year. The backpacks showcased on the runway were customized with their model’s initials embroidered into their canvas and nylon wares. Also seen is Alexander Wang’s, Philip Lim and Rick Owens’ collection this summer which makes it a must have for this season.

Extra Long Earrings
Mismatched pair of earrings in shoulder grazing lengths is a must-try this season. Seen at Celine and JW Anderson, this is the easiest trend to try. Pick two clashing pairs of earrings if you don’t have already or mix and match from what you have in your jewelry box.
Slippers in woven checkerboard prints by Acne and Lace slides by Balenciaga are the hottest flats of the season. Get yourself a cool pair to be the first one to sport this.
