Spring/summer 2016 fashion shows have officially concluded. There were highs as well as lows, however, the most significant element in abundance was the emergence of innumerable trends – in fact a whole lot of them.

The biggest trend that we had witnessed on 2015 runways was the revival of 70’s and this year seems no exception.

Those who are not much smitten with the fashions from the past, there were heaps of modern styles as well.

Scroll down to have a recap on this year’s spring/summer trends at Paris Fashion Week 2016.

Audacious Ruffles

Ruffles is the most prominent trend that we witnessed in all of the four fashion capitals. However, the Paris-based stylists engraved their own mark on this the trend for summer/spring 2016 with exotic strokes and lots of layers. From contemporary ruffles to fanciful sheer fabrics, ruffles are in-vogue for spring. Olivier Rousteing at Balmain employed the style on sensuous looks fashioned for her Balmain army. Dries Van Noten played with ruffles in a more innovative way, giving it a 3D effect which looked mesmerizing and pretty. The trend of ravishing ruffles at Sarah Jane Burton’s collection portrayed a soft, romantic style.

Bold Bra Tops

For the Spring/Summer 2016 runways, the fashion stylists focused on undershirts as daywear. The fashion weeks in New York and Milan were more about slip dresses. However, in Paris, the trend of bra tops literally rocked the spring/summer 2016 ramps. The models also showcased the style with some layering. But essentially, summers 2016 will be more skin showing than the previous years. The style was exhibited by Mugler, who coupled the bra tops with high-waist pants to achieve a phenomenal seductive look. In addition, Alexander Wang’s presentation for Balenciaga also displayed some light-hued bra tops accompanied by long robes.

Gamine Trend

Gender-neutral dressing is absolutely not new on the ramps. The summer/spring 2016 fashion shows in Paris featured stylists that brought the menswear influenced looks to the limelight. From slouchy pants to tuxedo jackets, gamine trend was everywhere on the ramps. The designers who exhibited gamine style at PFW include Alber Elbaz from Lanvin, British fashion designer Phoebe Philo and Hedi Slimane.

 

The Luxurious Leather Jackets

Leather jackets are timeless and it is definitely not a new trend. For spring/summer 2016, Paris-based stylists took the conventional leather jackets to the next level. The highlight of the PFW 2016 was the cropped version of the ageless leather jackets. In addition, the Louis Vuitton displayed beautifully embellished jackets that grabbed the attention of everyone.
