Forewarning, this trend may cause temporary blindness. This runway season, many designers elected a brighter palette for their spring collections. Christian Siriano maintained his tropical Hawaiian theme with neon yellow pieces. With his playful use of neon, Jeremy Scott was able to bring back his youth throughout his collection. This spring, be prepared for bright fluorescent clothing, not just in subtle hints.
This fashion week, some designers proved that pantsuits may not just be worn from 9 to 5. Pantsuits may now be worthy of wearing out on the town. In their 1970’s inspired collection, Camilla and Marc’s slitted suits are anything but dated. Open Ceremony updated the classic pantsuit with a houndstooth print and a large button closure. These suits may make going to work a little more exciting, but may be a little NSFW too.
3. Puffy Sleeves
The 80’s look of big shoulders is making a comeback this spring. Mara Hoffman and Preen by Thorton Bregazzi had different interpretations of the trend with the former opting for a more feminine style and the latter a more cool, laid-back look with the shoulder-heavy top paired with shorts and sandals. Puffy sleeves can be found in a variety of fashions making it a trend to wear no matter the mood.
4. PVC raincoats
The spring showers are not just bringing flowers, they also bringing opportunities to wear this new trend. With these shiny raincoats, rainy days will no longer make everyone grab for the covers. For her nightlife inspired collection, the designer for Adeam, Hanako Maeda, made a bright orange PVC coat that is sure to stand out in any night club. Sies Marjan perfectly executed the new rainy day essential in a sophisticated way.
This spring showing a little skin doesn’t involve wearing less. The flirty barely-there fabric was seen on the runways of Rodarte and Tory Burch. Both designers were able to make see-through whimsical yet fresh.
