From Runway to Realway: Top Spring 2016 Trends

The minimalistic look is officially last season.

The spring 2016 runways were ruled by the “more is more” motto and we are definitely on board with it!

Sparkle, Shimmer & Shine

The upcoming season is dipped in indulgent shimmer!

And no, it’s not just the formals that are donning the metallic silver; Isabel Marant even did boyfriend jeans to make the style street friendly!

If you are not up for the silver color, simply opt for sequined dresses in any metallic shade and glimmer on the go!

Stunning Stripes

For those not up for shimmer, give stripes a try!

Bold, patterned and swirly stripes in captivating color combos in boxy silhouettes and even in feminine lace, stripes were ruling the fashion capital runways for Spring 2016.

Victorian Ruffles

The Victorian trend has transcended seasonal boundaries to edge into the spring season too!

The trend is girly, grown-up and flirtatious all at the same time!

From pencil skirts to maxi skirts, from puffy sleeves to power sleeves, ruffles made a presence literally everywhere this runway season.

Creative Chaos

The not-so-minimalistic trends do not just end here. Designers expect us to go all artistic this season.

From garish animal prints to overly embellished attires, Prada and Gucci have given a nod to all those looking to embrace their inner artist.

Brightly Blue

Yet another trend that’s showing no sign of slowing down is the bright pop of blue eye shadow.

From electric blue lines to blatant strokes of teal blue, the trend will continue to stay hot and happening during the spring season.

Banging Fringe

With Alicia Vikander sporting an off-kilter fringe at the cover of January’s Vogue, the bangs are officially a ruling trend!

Pair it up with a slicked single braid and you have two of the hottest spring hair trends checked.

For those looking for a more dramatic effect, opt for Charlize Theron’s super-short cut. Call it a Mad Max effect if you will.
