After a year packed with minimalism from head to toe, we’re excited to see this spring’s trends, which are all about embracing bold, brash and beautiful looks!From bohemian inspired 70s vibes to unabashedly feminine shades of pink, flattering details and exotic flourishes, this year is all about letting your fashion wardrobe have some serious fun.Read on to take a closer look at some fantastically stylish and modest trends for 2016:
The 70s are a decade that always inspire fashion – and this spring, it’s all about bringing a wild and free touch of bohemian flair to your outfits!Perfect for styling with a hijab, think long, floaty floral dresses, clashing prints, suede jackets and generous touches of fringe detail. To style this look, try a pretty floral clash – pair a patterned blouse with a floral skirt, and top it off with a plain coloured scarf.
Accessories are also a great way to evoke the laid black boho glamour of the decade – faux fur jackets look perfect atop a whimsical floaty maxi dress, while slouchy leather bucket bags and oversized necklaces provide a great finishing touch!
A touch of Spanish style
Hints of Spanish culture were all over the runways – and it’s a great way of introducing some vibrant femininity for a daytime look.Take your inspiration from Flamenco dancers and traditional toreadors – pin a floral hairclip over your hijab for some asymmetric embellishment to add a colourful flourish to a plain outfit.Or if you’re feeling more creative, swap your jacket for a bolero-styled cropped jacket – style it over a jersey midi dress, or pair with a matching skirt for a polished work suit.
Pleat it up
Pleats are a great way to bring a sharp silhouette to your wardrobe – crisp knife pleats look utterly fresh on flowing muslim dresses when paired with a skinny waist belt or contrasted as a skirt against the tailored lines of a crisp blouse. Work with a softly draped hijab to add a delicate touch of contrast.Choose razor pleats over larger folds – these gives a sharp, precise and flowing look that feels fresh and contemporary.
It’s a cinch
Paperbag waists are perfect – flattering, feminine, and one of our favourite ways to style maxi skirts! Adding an instant touch of style, choose a dramatic belt to accessorise your look – and a slim fitting top to keep all the focus on your waist.
You could even wear this look with wide legged trousers – we love the nautical inspired trend, with a sailor-ready striped top and wide Breton trousers. Make sure you balance the look with some platform heels to keep it flattering!
Pretty in pink
Pink is always in season – but this year, it’s even more special. With dusky rose announced as the colour of the year, it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in all things blush toned.Ethereal, ballet inspired floaty skirts, softly draped wrap tops, warm, snuggly knits or smart tailored tunics with soft silk scarves – you absolutely cannot go wrong with this classic shade. To accessorise, go with gold – soft yellow gold and deep rose gold tones provide the perfect hint of glitter and gleaming to enrich the warm shades of pink.
