With spring just around the corner, style blogs and sites, have gathered the top fashion trends for spring 2016! From vintage flair to ready wear, the runways were popping with Victorian-charged, 70s-infused, and casual-style looks. Here you will find designer-inspired skirts, dresses, tops, and bags worthy of any fashionista's spring wardrobe.

Fringe-Front Knit Sweater
The Fringe Factor

When spring arrives, don't stow your knits away just yet! Refashion an old sweater to look runway ready with this fringed-front tutorial from a pair & a spare. Weave leather cord through the stitches of a loose-knit top in a triangular pattern, and be amazed how a little redesign goes a long way.

Ruffle Blouse

From Rags to Ruffles

Victorian couture hit the spring 2016 fashion scene with a lacy ruffled glove. Everything from puffy sleeves to high collars and flouncy florals marked the runway shows of Emilia Wickstead and J.W. Anderson. Mimic the feminine flair with a ruffle-cape blouse, like this one featured on Man Repeller.

Cut-Out-Shoulder Oxford Shirt
Cold-Shoulder Queen

Off-the-shoulder and cut-out looks have been trending for quite some time, but what do you get when your shoulders peep through a cut out? A cold shoulder - that is what! With shoulder cut-outs popping up on the runways for several seasons, it's time to catch onto this skin-baring trend. This cut-out-shoulder top from BurdaStyle remixes a classic oxford into an edgy but tasteful staple. Try it on a white button-up to match the white-oxford refashions happening all over the runways this season.

Orange Wedge Clutch
Orange You Glad? Clutch

Accessories are big in fashion, and want to guess what was popular on the runways this year? If you guessed half-moon bags, then you guessed correctly. This semi circle of a clutch is pretty and practical. DIY your own half-moon clutch thanks to Oh Hi DIY! Make this a bag a true orange wedge to reflect one of the hottest spring 2016 hues.

Paper Bag Waist Skirt with Pleats
Paper Bags Aren't Just for Lunch Anymore...

We've seen them before, and we'll see them again. Paper-bag waists are back this spring, so let's embrace them like we never have before. Paired with pleats, the paper bag looks especially on trend. This pleated paper-bag-waist skirt from Melly Sews shows you how to achieve two trends with just one skirt. Top it off with a shoulder-cut-out tee for a particularly-springy ensemble.
