NYFW SS16 | Trend Report

Things are about to go a little crazy online for Spring/Sumer 2016, and if you haven't quite found the time to follow the fashion madness on instagram/Vogue/your chosen fashion vessel, I've been devouring the goodness by every means possible.

Just to make this all bitesize, here are the top 5 trends I found on the catwalks at NYFW for SS16.

Yep, make it bright, make it white, and if you really want to bring it up a season, then make it textured too. White made a frothy appearance from Tadashi Shoji, Elie Tahari and Lela Rose to Kate Spade and Givenchy, all with their own twists and approaches (sequins, lace, broderie anglaise, chiffon, you name it). There was so much of it, I had trouble narrowing it down to an edit. If you want a tip for the next season neutral? This is it.

Amber, ruby, emerald, sapphire, amethyst and topaz. If you thought rich hues were the property of Autumn, then it seems they've been rocketed into Spring faster than you can say 'Jeez, I was predicting pastels'. Any old how, I for one love this update - it's refreshing and luxe. Semi precious, semi precocious, completely divine. I heart Monique Lhullier, Tibi and Jason Wu.

As for metallics? We're welcoming in gold, gold and more gold. From pale and dusky to glorious and coppery, just make sure it shines.

With the whisper of sequins and a few zany prints here and there, I think we can safely say that 80s inspo is dawning with the new SS16 silhouette - ruffles. Now as much as I don't really want to go back there (it was acceptable in the 80s, it was acceptable at the time, etc), fast forward to 2016 and a well placed ruffle is truly feminine. Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Zimmermann, Freya Dalsjo, Tome and Prabal Gurung flamenco-d it fancy, and the fashion world saluted.

Amongst the rich satin jewel tones and dreamy white, statement prints in bold colours ruled the roost. Whilst the reliable Spring florals (photographic, this season) and stripes (multicoloured, natch) still play a part here and there, we're really looking folky, almost new traveller for SS16. From Mexican inspired embroidery, patchwork and crochet, to Native American style jewellery and bold African colour palettes (and that was just Tommy Hilfiger). BCBG Max Azria, Tory Burch and Custo Barcelona followed along the same folk-inspired lines, whereas DVF was a riot of colour, with a nod to Indian sari hued pinks and yellows and tiny lotus prints.

One stop shop for the new season? For NYFW, make it the suit. We're moving on a little further in the world of co-ords (or for those a little older, revisiting the 80s once more) and getting a contemporary twist on it all. Nothing says power like a suit, and New York is all about packing a punch.

Stand out show? 
Diane von Furstenberg because it felt like a party, Rodarte because it felt like a wonderland and Tory Burch, for making me want to go on holiday all over again.

Hold on to your hats, we're rolling off to LFW...!
