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.
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.
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.
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.
