Trend Report SS16: The Return of Femininty

Fashion Week is in full swing and before we get overwhelmed with collections that we won't be able to shop for another six months, it is time to reflect on spring/ summer 2016 and I thought I would do a round up of my favourite trends from the collections we saw last year and trends that we are sure to see this spring/ summer. 

Romanticism was a theme that played heavily throughout the SS16 shows. Spring-Summer 2016 was undeniably all about sensuality and femininity and that played through on many designers’ runways. Personally, I like effortless tailored looks that still retain that feminine allure. This has been a gradually growing trend and the emphasis of the waist and the promotion of a more feminine silhouette is a trend I am very excited about. 

The return of the hourglass glass figure was emphasized with cinched in waists and figure hugging silhouettes, hugging the body and highlighting the waist. This is a trend that has taken over the runways for spring-summer 2016. The cinched in waist trend was a prominent feature on the runways of brands such as Balmain, Valentino, Moncler Gamme, Tom Ford and many more. 

My favourite however, was Dior, and the house of dior does this so well just as Christian Dior did in 1947 with his infamous New Look that reverted women back to this idea of femininity. So, taking inspiration from the Dior Runway, there are three different ways of rocking this trend.   

Belt it
Using a belt to cinch in the waist, offering a quick and simple way of wearing this spring summer 2016 trend. The use of an accessory also adds an added element of drama to the outfit.

Secondly is through opting for a slim silhouette, this silhouette contours against the body, placing emphasis on the curvaceous shape of the body, a look that is in line with the seasons overall sensual appeal.

Crop it
Finally is through the use of cropped tops to expose the midriff. The exposed midriff gives a peek of the skin without exposing too much. With trousers and skirts becoming more high-waisted, the crop top allows the waist to be accentuated.
