Spring has come and do you want to know the latest fashion trend that’s been chirping the runways? Why birds of course. Longneck swans, multicolor lovebirds, peasants, emerald hummingbirds, and doves have been printed in soft chiffon tops, retro-glam dresses, pajama pants, and blazers this season.
Fashion designers who have replicated this trend are Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jill Stuart, and Suno. They are inspired by freedom and open wilderness, so unleash your inner free spirit by wearing this trend. Unlike other whimsical trends, bird patterns are soft and delicate. It would add a nice soft touch to your wardrobe because of its sherbet and pastel colors.
But other designers who have been inspired by this aviary trend opted for strong silhouette and bolder and abstract prints, perfect for mixing prints that are huge this spring. But this trend does not limit clothing but the birds also flocked to accessories like bags, bangles, and rings. And if you are looking for a perfect trend that would go well with this winged fashion try pairing it with metallic pieces like gold pants and sequined shorts.
Another fashion trend that’s been present in almost every show is the urban jungle. Outfit your inner trailblazer in white-hot separates, reptilian bags, utilitarian sandals, tribal printed bags, and tie-dyed pieces. Perfect for wandering the desert and dancing to the drumbeat in the jungle but with an urban twist.
This spring trend let loose the adventurer in all of us. Set foot in an adventure with khaki shorts, sun-scorched printed tops, utilitarian boots, and embossed lizard and linen saddlebag. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Another trend that’s been glazing the runways is shinny plastic wax on. Laminated finish stood out in forms of outerwear, separates, and accessories. Big bulky jackets and dresses having a shiny finish would surely be a head-turner.
Architecture and interiors are also huge this season in forms of intricate latticework consisting of sparkling crisscrossed patterns and intricate embroidery. Pieces from Balmain and Rodarte are full of this overlapping pattern that would surely make a statement piece and a focal point of your outfit. And also having a comeback in line with the urban jungle trend is the military trend.
Designers brought a fresh twist by making it with luxurious fabrics and body-hugging and fitted silhouettes. The clothes have a sharp feel to them but with a feminine touch.
Like the seasons, trends come and go. Being stylish doesn’t mean following every trend and wearing them. You must know what looks good on you that would suit your personality and style. Replicating what you see on the runways and magazines is not fashionable; you must add something to it that would make it your own.
You just have to be creative and think outside the box. Like what John Fairchild said, “Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style.”
