Following fashion trends can be tricky, expensive and scary at times, but do not fear; hopefully after you’ve finished reading this, you’ll feel more confident with some of the Spring/Summer 2016 trends! It’s one thing to see these trends make an appearance on the catwalk, and a completely different one to make them work on a day-to-day basis.
Naked shoulders were seen all over the runway shows! This might be stepping outside of your comfort zone, but trust me, you can end up feeling sexy and super confident when wearing this trend in particular, so I encourage you to take some notes.
Designers such as Michael Kors, Givenchy, Chloe and Nicole Miller took part of this trend, and we’re all OBSESSING OVER IT! Shoulder cutouts have been presented in various commodities, which makes it more achievable and desirable to everyone. We’ve seen bare shoulders not only on tops, but also on coats, dresses and jumpsuits. You can wear any of these with high-waisted pants, midi skirts, or even with some boyfriend jeans. This trend is very Sex & The City, and who doesn’t want to have a little Carrie Bradshaw in their life?
If bare shoulders aren’t ‘daring’ enough, try this one… This will help you spice up your wardrobe for the upcoming season, and it’s about lace-up EVERYTHING. We’re seeing tops with an opening in the neckline and lace up along it, as well as on shoes, pants and shorts! This is one of my personal favorite trends for spring/summer 2016 since it allows me to show a bit of skin and feel very confident without showing too much. It’s very feminine and flirty, and you can literally rock this in many different ways!
Now, we can’t forget about trends in makeup… It’s the one thing that brings the whole outfit together, and for me, it’s a deal breaker. Your makeup can make your outfit hotter, or it can completely ruin it, if you’re not doing it right, so LISTEN UP! When wearing such pieces, you need to pair them with either a smoky eye, or a cat-eye. These makeup looks will complete your fierce, confident outfit, and will empower you even more. If you’re not the kind of person that likes to go all-out on your eyes, you can also pair that outfit with a bold red lip. Bold lips are HUGE this Spring/Summer 2016 season, everything from reds, to pinks and oranges.
You’re all set up to be a more confident and sexy YOU! Play around with these trends, mix and match them, but most importantly, don’t forget to have fun with them. Trends are created to be followed, but you can adapt each trend to your own personality and make it fit with who you are, and with the person you want to portray. Now get out of bed, go get a shoulder cutout dress, some lace-up sandals and a hot pink lipstick! I promise you won’t regret it…
