Top Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2015

It’s time for spring-summer 2015 again and looking at the trends for the season I’m actually pleasantly surprised.

EVERY SINGLE YEAR the regulars that appear over and over and over again (maybe under a slightly different name, but we can see through that!) – our regulars being “nautical” and the “luxury boho”. Also a regular micro-trend for summers is “fringe” which ties in conveniently with the ever-returning luxury boho/ hippie/ 70s/ beatnik, they are co-dependent really.

A third regular which is maybe not as common is the “Khaki” (as it’s called this year) – which also tends to try disguise itself under the names: military, utilitarian and safari.

Here is “Khaki/ military/ safari” for you – also a great alternative from the preppy nautical people who are too scared to venture too far out of their comfort zone of blazers and chinos:

So every summer, we split into “nautical” for the preppy, clean, slick and more mature amongst us while the ones that think they are the free-spirited, tree-hugging bohemians and ever-young opt for the “boho”. Rinse and Repeat. Rewind and Repeat.

Here we have some examples of the “nautical” uniform: think preppy, blue-white combo, stripes, boat shoes, white chinos/ jeans (vom vom vom)…you get the drift.

Here we have some examples of the “boho/ hippie” uniform: think patchwork, lots of beads, ohm symbols, fringe, splashes of colour, long flowing fabrics, “ethnic” prints,  turquoise silver jewellery…yes I do know this one particularly well :D

BUT – also this spring summer 2015 we have a few trends that could be quite fun actually! I expect they won’t be as popular as the regular suspects (even if it’s only because you can just unpack your stuff from last year for the regulars) but they are a welcome change into the mix, my favourites:

  • White Lace (ties in very closely with the boho/ hippie – so you might have some white lace bits from last year that can be recycled?)

  • Metallics (I do love a splash of gold – any excuse to crack out the gold trousers!)

  • Jumpsuits (I’m not the biggest fan as they always make your bum look saggy and going for a pee is such a mission – but again, I have an awesome bronze sequin jumpsuit that’s waiting to be cracked out – AND jumpsuits can easily be boho/ nautical/ khaki – anything you want really?)

  • Ballerina (this is not one for me personally though I do LOVE a good tutu skirt, but I could very much imagine it would look lovely on other people – AND it’s really just tacking a new name on those pastel bits that you’ve got lying around from last summer isn’t it? I don’t really wear pastels but a lot of people do.)

And BOOM – that’s all from me on the spring-summer trends this year – quite a lot of it re-hashed from every year as usual, but a few cute new ones – and all really easy to pull off, follow my instagram if you’d like to see my pathetic attempts at pulling off any of these ;)
