Lace, ruffles, fishnets and off-the-shoulder… I am truly happy that most of the fashion elements that I love is making a huge comeback!
The new riff of off-the-shoulder. Forget fussing with an off-the-shoulder top that constantly needs readjustment. This season’s take on the trend secures at the neck and elegantly exposes your neckline and shoulders with ease.
SS16’s big romance played out at Michael Kors, Miu Miu, Roberto Cavalli and more, as ruffles became a key detail trend. Quantity and quality were both important here – take your cue from Mary Katrantzou’s more minimal, structured tiers, or go all out in a shredded Marques Almeida number.
Speaking of the 1990s, the world’s simplest, comfiest, sexiest outfit is back – the slip dress. Celine and Givenchy’s runways were particularly sleepwear-inspired, showing several variations of the look.
Yes, the head-to-toe fishnet looks at Valentino and especially Alexander McQueen were pretty daring. Most of us probably aren’t bold enough for a full-length fishnet dress, but a top like the one at Balmain could be fun for a night out when balanced with a knee-length skirt.
Lace has been big for a few seasons now. What sets the lacey looks at the spring 2016 shows apart is that they’re all alluringly sheer. If you’d rather not bare all like the model at Badgley Mischka, you can layer your sheer piece over a bralette, cami and/or shorts.
So which one is your favourite?
