The hottest trends for 2015 include several nods to the past, including twists on military colors and cuts, some 70s and 80s inspired looks, and vintage accessories. There is no way to combine all of the looks in one appealing outfit, but you can take some of the coolest trends for spring, summer, and fall and tuck them into your closet, paired with some staples you already have. The result can be fun, flirty, and fashion forward.
Geometric Prints – It might feel like the 80s are peeking out from the racks with this trend, but you don’t have to go all-in with patterns in your wardrobe. Add a top or fun summer dress with geo patterns to your wardrobe. If you feel a bit too tame, try muted colors or throw a geometric print tank on under a solid blazer.
All About the Color – Taking a fashion page from earlier decades, designers are using some retro colors, especially for fall 2015. Add something burnt orange, military olive green, and deep browns into your wardrobe. These throwback colors look great with tones of blues you already have in your closet. When you start your search for a new fall coat, consider adding one in these rich fall colors.
Culottes – Another tribute to the past that we first started seeing last season were culottes. These baggy bottoms look great when paired with one of your snug t-shirts. You can even dress them up with some favorite heels or a fitted blazer.
A-Line Minis – A great look for spring and summer, the A-line mini is back and it looks trendy with simple polo shirts (also a hot trend for the season) for a preppy afternoon outfit. Going out for the evening? Take an A-line mini and pair it with one of your favorite sexy tops and heels.
Shoulder Cut-Outs – Last season we saw the off-the-shoulder looks, and this season we are seeing more and more one-shoulder cuts. These look cute with your favorite pair of comfy jeans, or if you need a new spring dress, look for one with this flirty detail.
Bohemian Inspiration – Anything Bohemian – Boho – is hot this season. All you need is one cute top or dress to add to your wardrobe with a Boho inspired print, and look for the fringe. The colors and wilder prints can be tamed with dark pants or a sleek trench thrown over a true Boho top.
Fringe Forward – Also inspired by the Boho look, fringe is everywhere this season. If you just aren’t ready for a fringe-flowing top, look for a jacket with some fringe trim.
Go with Gingham – We aren’t talking about table-cloth looks here. The gingham trend is a fabulous way to add some flirty fashion into your spring and summer wardrobe. Look for an adorable gingham sundress, but if that feels like too much for you, try a gingham sleeveless blouse with your favorite pair of denim shorts – or even an A-line mini – for an afternoon at the park or beach with friends.
Kimono-Inspired Trenches – The trench coat comes and goes in women’s fashion, but this year the twist on the classic look is a baggier, Kimono-inspired trench. The comfortable cut of the coat makes it work over your fall sweaters, or you can belt it for a sleek look with that little dress hanging in your closet.
Brooches are Back – Taking inspiration from the first half of the 20th century, brooches are back. If you already love the pieces in your wardrobe but are looking for easy and inexpensive ways to update your looks, this is the perfect way. Look at second-hand shops for vintage pieces or check out your favorite boutique – you’re sure to see them everywhere, especially by fall.
Comfortable Shoes – Finally a fashion trend that won’t cause blisters or eye sores, comfortable shoes this spring and summer are hot looks, even with flirty dresses and skirts.
The fashion trends for spring, summer, and fall of 2015 combine looks from the past with styles and pieces from more recent runways. You don’t have to do a complete overhaul of your closet, though, to incorporate these latest looks.
