Fringe has been the most prominent trend seen at this year’s fashion shows and music festivals. Gone are the days when fringe reminds you of the head-honcho cowboy starring in an old western movie. These days, you can spot many celebs sporting their favorite fringe getup.
However, this season brings new interpretations and combinations. Fringe can be seen on handbags, jackets, sandals, even jewelry. For spring and summer 2015, there has been a huge emphasis on intricate detail. Weirdly, we like it and clearly others do too.
2. All White
Slowly but surely, all black wardrobes are getting taken over by all white. Its clean simplicity feels angelic and feminine.
While a white blouse is sweet and demure, an all white getup is downright chic. My favorite way to rock all white is to mix up textures by adding white crochet, lace, or silk to a white pants ensemble. Be sure to keep a Tide To Go pen handy in case of an accidental spill.
P&P Tip: Accessorize your all-white outfit with gold!
3. Graphic Tee
With social media so present in our lives, it seems like sayings on tee shirts are all the rage. Whether it’s a political party that you stand for, or a simple-yet-hilarious sayings like “Namastay in Bed,” graphic tee are sure to be sizzling this summer.
4. Black & White
As separate colors, black and white tend to be the safest choices for many occasions. But the high contrasting nature of black and white together make it embody to the definition of modern chic with an assertive flare. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the ultra high-fashion Chanel logo (spoiler: it’s black and white). This trend is simplistic, bold, and has been seen all over this season’s high fashion runways.
5. Flared Jeans
Bye-bye (sort of) skinny jeans, hellllo flared jeans. This slimming and elongating 70s-inspired trend makes us feel wild— probably similar to what we would have felt while frolicking around barefoot at Woodstock.
I’ll admit I was a little skeptical to wear these because… well, I have pictures of my mom wearing extreme bellbottom flare jeans. But I can’t blame her — they are as comfortable as they are flattering. Thanks Mom (and the 70s)!
6. Romantic Ruffled Lace
Although lace has been “in style” for years now, each year it continues to grow. I have seen ruffled lace transform from wedding dresses to everyday ensembles, and the intricate lace details of this year’s runway fashions combine bohemian and modern chic to envelop femininity and romance.
PSA to all women: you should have at least one lace ensemble your closet… if not 2 or 10.
