From the 70s to the 90s, we saw a preview of what’s to come this Spring/Summer 2015. While top editors and fashion bloggers have already been seen sporting the season’s top trends, you’re still figuring out which pieces to throw out from the last. So to make it easier for you, we break down the 7 key pieces (from top to bottom) you should consider adding to your wardrobe this season.
One of the biggest trends to hit the Spring/Summer 2015 shows is the 70s; and it’s clear that the disco era is back for the season. So that means, maxi dresses, printed vests, and chunky platforms are making their way back into fashion. Our favorite piece? The flare pants. Designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Emilio Pucci, and Derek Lam seem to love it too. With its versatility and power to elongate your legs, the flare pants are sure to keep you dancing into a sartorial groove.
This reborn 90s trend carries on into 2015. If you’re after comfort and class, then the open-toe mules are for you. While we’d love a pair of pumps any day, it’s great to give our feet a little bit of fresh air. We love how it’s also easy to pair with anything from casual to formal wear. After all, we’d love to think there’s a Carrie Bradshaw in all of us.
The shirtdress is an all-time favorite. But this year, the classic piece is getting an upgrade with varying lengths and statement accents. The feminine meets tomboy look is great with a pair of sandals but the tailored trend can easily transition into fall with a pair of boots. As an alternative to the slip dress, the shirtdress that’s both casual and sophisticated will keep you looking polished on and off duty.
If you want to opt for the comfort you get when wearing sandals and at the same time, get a lift, platform sandals is your best bet. From daily errands to a beach getaway, these playful shoes will take you all throughout the summer.
Reintroduced last year, the culottes took a slow liking for its unusual silhouette and length. The wide-leg bottoms are a bit tricky to wear but when worn in right proportions, these cropped pants are surprisingly flattering. With its power to look edgy and cool in flats and stylish and sophisticated in heels, culottes have proven their right to stay.
Just when you thought this ancient trend was going away for good, the gladiators are taking it to greater heights. Interpreted in various ways at Valentino, Chloe, and Alberta Ferreti, the stylish sandals have proven time and time again that it deserves the spotlight.
