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.

Off the Shoulder Tops

The cold shoulder is back but with a more feminine vibe. The runways at Jason Wu, Proenza Schouler, and Derek Lam all showcased the shoulder in a fresh new way.

Vintage Vibes

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.

Printed Street Pajamas

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.

Slip Dresses

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.

Net Worth

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.

Updated White Shirts

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

Thank the Fashion Gods, a comfortable shoe trend that feels fresh! Look to brands like Edun, Alexander Wang, and Trademark for the coolest styles.

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.

This cool, minimalist style is about to be seen everywhere. If you're after Victoria Beckham's much coveted version, get ready to hop on a long line.
