It is time to update your wardrobe with the latest Spring 2015 arrivals, and we are breaking down the must-have fashion trends to add to your style. Have a look at what is hot for spring 2015 fashion and what clothes and colours are in.
Each fall we incorporate plaid and tartan into our wardrobes. But for spring we switch to florals and tiny check called gingham. These prints give your outfit an instant seasonal update. Presented in a range of colours, gingham print reminds of a picnic tablecloth, South of France dresses (Michael Kors) and retro beach wear from the ’50s and ’60s. Whichever one you choose, gingham is sure to become one of the hottest Spring 2015 fashion trends.

Every season, a specific decade takes over the runways, and this time Bianca Jagger-inspired 1970s have won out. Good news for those who are not fans of this decade – you can keep your mother’s bell bottoms where they belong – on the bottom of your closet. This time, incorporate subtle 70s touches in denim, retro lapels, daring colour combinations and slouchy pants. The other major trend that takes a cue from 1970s is coloured suede and soft summer dresses (Pucci) that always remind me of Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City.

Spring Summer 2015 abounds with prints and I am pretty sure that everyone will something for themselves. Flowers are everywhere: floral prints, 3D flowers and pretty applique botanicals brought lawn borders to the runway this season. Among other spring-ready prints we have gingham (see above), bold animal prints and good old stripes. My advice? Start from a floral print dress and get into the spring mood.

White seems legit in the summer so it is no wonder it has become such a popular choice on the streets and world’s red carpets. In the last decade, everyone was asking if they can wear white after Labour Day. But today no one cares. It is just one more convention. Many designers including Valentino have proved that white is a versatile colour and it does not take much effort to nail it. Follow fashion mavens and accessorize head-to-toe white with metallic sandals and snake jewellery for a seasonal touch. Also, they mix up textures for added intrigue.

The world is obsessed with healthy lifestyle and sport is a big part of it. Designers have translated this trend into the fashion, and for quite a few seasons have presented numerous sporty-go-luxe looks on the runways. As of spring 2015 fashion, try sport’s traditional look with a touch of glam. An athletic aesthetic clearly took over the runways, most notably by incorporating mesh, sheer and leather to minimalistic sportswear separates such as shorts, sweatshirts and relaxed pants. The conclusion? This season sportswear becomes streetwear!

The best part of spring 2015 sheer trend is that you can actually wear in your everyday life! Sheer overlay became an important part of blouses, dresses and floor-length stunners, lending grace to each step. Sheer is no longer provocative, it does not reveal more than it should. On the other hand, it makes you look like a cool, modern gypsy. Next time you wear a sheer blouse, make sure you have a matching a bra underneath or at least a tiny denim jacket just like Jouran Dunn in Burberry.

A fashion-forward fringe presents a unique, stand-out style. The most beautiful fringe ensembles were presented by Sonia Rykiel and Giambattista Valli who used fringe to adorn casual dresses and skirts. However, more and more evening dresses have been updated with a free-spirit fringe. Fringe looks great a great compliment to safari clothes (also very trendy in spring summer 2015), as a part of subtle 1970s looks and in warm weather casual dresses.
When you think of denim, the first thing that comes to mind is probably jeans. But a big denim trend for Spring 2015 in women’s fashion, is the denim jacket and a denim dress. To achieve a trendy all-American classic look try a head-to-toe denim, a ripped, patched or torn one or a peek-a-boo denim. The safest way to achieve this dramatic look is a jumpsuit. Fashion lovers, keep your eye on cropped, baggy denim pants but keep your top slim to create a cool contrast.

Black and white
Dressing head-to-toe in a black and white does not seem a daring idea but this is what designers want us to do in spring 2015. The trend is carrying over from last year so no need to dramatically change your wardrobe. Your black and white look can be classic (Chanel) or totally modern (Giabmattista Valli) . What makes this season’s take on the black and white combination interesting, are the different textures and patterns.
