Five Trends of Spring 2016
It has been an exciting week for Oliamoda. My blog was featured on the local ABC news where I got to talk about spring trends and share some of my spring forward looks. For those of you who have not seen the segment you can watch it here.
The five trends we will be seeing this season are:
Stripes: nautical or not, bold stripes stand out this season
Smooth operator: slip on dresses and silky silhouettes for a romantic look
Ripple effect: feminine ruffle details will add drama to your look
Max factor: the more patterns, textures and contrast you mix the better
Cold shoulder: off the shoulder exposure or accentuated shoulder is the new big thing
The look I put together here highlights a few of the mentioned trends. The striped silky pants are the perfect item of Spring 2016. I found these pants on my recent trip to LA. It was love at first sight, the versatility of this style of pant and its luxurious feel will make them my favorite black pants for the months to come. Wide legged pants like this one compliment many body types so do not be afraid to try them out. Just remember to keep the top choice slim fitting. The pants are dressy as they are but can be easily dressed down with a flat shoe, a platform or even a sneaker. I am a fan of these metallic lace ups, they go with almost every outfit and give you an elegant look even without the heel.
A trend that is here to stay are lacy details and accentuated shoulders. This top is a lovely match not just to these silky pants but to many other bottoms like jeans and even suede skirts.
To stay warm I chose a leather jacket. You can not go wrong with a classic moto jacket like this one.
