As spring enters the scene in 2016, fashionistas prepare their ensembles to match the hottest springtime trends for this year. From skinny scarves to pleated pieces, opportunities for creativity and femininity abound. Here are five trends to watch out for in spring 2016 with the fabrics you need to make the look happen.
Transform your 2015 printed, silk fabric scarf that was the focus point of your outfit into the 2016 skinny, long statement piece. Using fabrics like satin for a soft look or sequins to add some glitz to your ensemble, the key here is to aim for a thin scarf rather than a bulky, heavy scarf. This scarf isn’t used to keep warm – rather, this scarf shows off your trendy, fashionable side.
Skirts with slits were all the rage in 2015, with the point behind the skirt to draw attention by pairing with neutral-colored skirts. In 2016, fashionistas should draw attention to more than the slit skirt by adding an avant-garde twist to their style, says PopSugar.com. Create an oversized bow for your skirt with fabrics like sequins or lace, or add some elegance with a touch of satin.
2016 will be the year of the slinky, silky slip dress, according to WhoWhatWear.com. The best way to get the look is by making your own dress in simple black or an elegant color. Try satin or fitted spandex nylon to really attract the fashion attention you seek.
Mixed metallics are finding their place in 2016 fashion in the form of shoes, bags, clothes and nail polish. Add a hint of metallic to your getup with some metallic tissue lame, perfect for lettering and decorations. Consider embellishing your bag with some tissue lame to make it pop – a fun spring project that will show off your passion for fashion.
Complete your springtime wardrobe with a light and airy pleated piece in your favorite fabric. Whether you make a dress, a skirt or a top, pleated pieces are having their moment to shine in 2016. Choose from a wide variety of fabrics in different colors, patterns and textures to create the look that’s perfect for you.
