Spring Fashion Trends 2015

Wednesday April 01 , 2015

If it’s 16 degrees in Edmonton; Spring has sprung, regardless of what the calendar says. Which means, no more waiting, it is time to add colour back into the wardrobe. I have been scouring the stores on Whyte Avenue weekly, waiting (not so patiently) for new arrivals. Below are a few of my favourite finds and trending must haves for spring 2015.

Gingham is one of the hottest prints this season; reminiscent of table cloths or picnic blankets, this easy to pair black and white pattern is bold, yet cheerful for Spring. The classic print gets a sophisticated makeover this season, thanks to Oscar de La Renta, Altuzarra and Michael Kors who revamped it on the runway for Spring 2015.

Both platforms and the block heel are trending in footwear. I love both, because unlike the stiletto, I can walk for hours in either. It is also an easy way to funk up any casual look.

Have you heard the old saying “you don’t want to be the women in the yellow coat”? Well, never mind what our grandmothers used to say, this season you DO want to be the one in yellow. Forget mellow yellow... designers are taking a bold stand on the colour this season and using yellows that really pop!

Fur is taking the back seat thanks to Michael Kors, Loewe and Cholé who have all introduced suede into the limelight for spring. These designers are not sticking to a neutral pallet either, the brighter the better. Are you persueded yet?

When you wear them, the length should hit the smallest part of your calf, so the crop of the short looks intentional (if need be, hem them). A heel will do wonders with this look. Remember to have fun with the look, play it up with boots, sweaters or a blouse. Culottes can be practical for the office, or hitting the streets as casual weekend wear.
