Ok, so we just started the year off with a bang, and now 2016 is well under way. If you've been paying attention to the sea-changes in the fashion world, you've probably already noticed a few trends slipping away while new ones sidle up and take their much-coveted spots. We have already seen cropped, flared jeans take the place of skinnies, and we've seen the proliferation of colored fur trim adorning the well-heeled street style stars and celebs all winter long. But what's next for spring? According to trustworthy fashion publications and the pulse on the street, these are the trends that will be taking over come Spring.

The vintage vibrations are huge for spring. Look for Victorian inspired dresses and blouses, 70's inspired suede and fringe, and beautiful brocades like the intricate ones found at the Gucci Spring 2016 runway show.

Yes, you will finally be able to wear your PJs in public. Normally I would advise against this but with the stunning selection of printed poplins and satins found at shows like Dolce & Gabbana and Etro, I'll give you the go ahead.
If you buy one new thing for Spring, make it a slip dress. This 90's style is still as sweet and sexy as ever. Layer it over denim for a modern update.
If Altazurra and Dion Lee say orange is happening, then you better listen up.
Netting is still cool for spring. Look to labels like Creatures of the Wind or Marchesa for styling pointers so you don't look like a mermaid caught in a ship's netting.

As long as it's a white button down, it's in style. Experiment with tunics, unconventional buttoning techniques, and cold shoulders.

Stripe it Up
I guess stripes aren't going anywhere, phew! If you stocked up last year you're still in good shape, but it never hurts to add a few new iterations to the mix.
