Fashion Trends for a Stylish Spring/Summer Look in 2016

0315-fashion-blog-v2

You don’t have to be a celebrity like Ariana Grande, Ciara, Sienna Miller, Kerry Washington or even the Duchess of Cambridge to rock it in the latest trends this spring and summer. With designers at all price points taking cues from Fashion Week Spring 2016, there are affordable and fashionable looks out there — you just need to know what you’re searching for!

 

Colors of the Spring/Summer Fashion Trends

The PANTONE® Fashion Color Report for Spring 2016 points to “colors that transport us to a happier, sunnier place, where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the PANTONE Color Institute.

These colors for both men and women include (from left) rose quartz, peach echo, serenity, snorkel blue, buttercup, limpet shell, lilac gray, fiesta, iced coffee and green flash. (See the website for the PANTONE numbers.)

 

Highlights of the Spring/Summer Fashion Trends

Flirty Slip Dresses

Slinky slip dresses are the ticket this spring, according to Marie Claire magazine. This sexy look incorporates underwear/lingerie as outerwear. Gotta love the comfort of silk and satin!

Large Plaids

Elle magazine points to “blown-out plaid” as a hot look this season. So, look for the checked prints, ladies!

Off the Shoulder

Another trendy fashion involves showing a little skin, reports Vogue magazine. Baring your shoulders, that is. Off-the-shoulder styles and cool cut outs rule this season.

Ruffles

Ruffles are a key detail trend this spring and summer. Glamour magazine shares that “This season’s ruffles are subtle, romantic and feminine.”

High Shine Fabrics

Think shiny, shimmery metallic, ladies. This goes for accessories, too. Sequins and any shiny material makes a high-impact piece out of a simple garment, according to Vogue magazine.

Suede

A flashback to the ’70s, suede is a hot look this season. The soft, delicate fabric is now season-less, much like leather the last few years, according to InStyle magazine.

Super Stripes

“The stripe is oh so right” this season, says Marie Claire magazine. And, we’re not talking thin, subtle stripes. It’s all about broad bands of color in bright tones.

Denim

The big trends in denim, says Vogue magazine, are printed denim, the long skirt, patchwork denim, feminine looks and the ’90s skater jean. Cropped flare jeans are also hot.

Big Sleeves

Puffy sleeves are back. Or, Old English sleeves as Harper’s Bazaar refers to them. The popular styles include bubble sleeves, bell sleeves and balloon sleeves. Quite a way to make a statement!

Other women’s fashion trends for this season include:

  • Spanish Influence
  • Victorian/Romantic
  • White Blouses
  • Pleats
  • Oversize Floral Prints
  • Fringe
  • Complicated Patterns/Mixed Prints
  • Maxiskirts and Dresses
  • Boldly Colored Actif-Sportif Outfits

 

Don’t Forget Your Man!

Johnny Mannah points to these men’s spring/summer fashion trends in his article on The Trend Spotter website.

  • Overalls
  • White Chinos/Trousers
  • Bomber Jackets
  • Fifties Shirts
  • Shorter Shorts

Utilitarian and monochromatic looks are also hot for men this season.

Moll Anderson’s Day-By-Day Diary of Fashion Week Fun

Last week I was busy preparing for Fashion’s Night Out and the week of fashion, friends, and fun. What girl doesn’t love dressing up and getting a sneak peak at the latest fashions?

Moll with Kim McCoy at Dior celebrating Fashion's Night Out to kick off Fashion Week

Thursday, Sept. 6

Fashion Week kicked off on Thursday at Fashion’s Night Out. My good friend and producer, Kim McCoy and I attended the benefit event at Dior.

The New York City AIDS Fund in the New York Community Trust was the charity benefiting from this spectacular evening. We had a great time at the Dior event and were photographed together enjoying the night’s festivities.

I stopped by the Donna Karan store in Manhattan after the Dior event to say hello. Donna had a signing of her new book honoring her late husband, Stephan Weiss: Connecting the Dots, Portrait of a Man, and I couldn’t resist picking up several copies for gifts. (Donna looks fabulous by the way.)

Sunday, Sept. 9

On Sunday, I had a front row seat for Chado Ralph Rucci, and it was amazing. I’m excited to share that color is everywhere— fuchsia, hot yellow and every color to make your heart leap with joy when spring 2013 hits. Even the models had a touch of raspberry on their eyelids and it was super-sexy. Loved that shiny back vinyl and I never get tired of it. Chatted it up with Bravo TV’s new starlet, Julia Allison, on “Miss Advised.” Super sweet and gorgeous in person! Saw everyone from Martha Stewart to Paula Abdul!

Monday, Sept. 10

On Day 6 of Fashion Week, I am on my way to the Donna Karan show held in Soho instead of Lincoln Center. I love that she bucks the system and goes for her own venue. The line is wonderful. Sexy and practical at the same time and it was infused with subtle colors. Seafoam green and a pale, pale Italian orange was a chic surprise. Oh yes, I marked several I’ll be rocking this next spring!

Monday night was very special because I got to celebrate my dear girlfriend Lee Woodruff who had a book party for her new and really incredible novel Those We Love Most. The weather was fabulous, and we visited and connected with truly incredible people who all came to support her latest book.

Please go buy several copies! It’s a page-turner you’ll want to curl up with on your sofa along with a glass of wine.

Simply seductive shoes on display at Saks

Tuesday, Sept. 11

Party in the Shoe Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue on Tuesday so I got in the fashion mood and tweeted pics of my favorite seductive shoes!

Wednesday, Sept. 12

Wednesday was a fabulous day at the Michael Kors show. Michael’s show is always the hottest ticket during fashion week, and I think this was one of my favorite collections that really crosses many age demographics!

From super short and flirty hot pants with jackets to ladylike coats with matching skirts and slacks! Color, color, color! The stars were also out in full force, Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta Jones, Rachel Zoe, Camellia Belle and many more. MK is truly Americana.

Thursday, Sept. 13

It’s Thursday and a way too early morning for me today. I arrived at CBS studios at 6:45 this morning for a 7:40 appearance on “Live From the Couch.” I was so excited to share some affordable changes to a space that will make a big seductive difference in your life.

This week of fab fashion has NOT disappointed. It’s been a busy but exciting week for me in New York, and I cannot wait to share more fashion finds with you this season.
