Now that the fall 2015 runway shows are over, it’s time to hit rewind and think spring fashion. Remember all of those fabulous duds, shoes and accessories you went gaga over last fall when you watched those shows? Well, you’ll find the hautest spring fashion trends available now at Saks Fifth Avenue Union Square, which has been kind enough to share its crop of exciting spring fashion trends that it embraced from the runways. Whether you’re a jet setter or a bohemian, Saks has something for you. Here are some of the store’s key items of the season:
Designers opt for rich and exuberantly detailed fabrics this spring. Intricate brocades, jacquards, patchwork and collage effects bring regal dimension to ready-to-wear.
Luxurious ornamentation was rampant on the runways. Artisanal techniques were used to transform the everyday into the extraordinary with beads and crystals, feathers and fringe and elements of shine.
Lace re-emerges for spring in different iterations ranging from romantic to bohemian. Whether re-embroidered and layered, or sheer and transparent, its essence of femininity and whimsical escapism was embraced on the runways.
Designers celebrate a carefree spirit with the season’s embellishment of choice: fringe. Statement pieces are reimagined in suede, beading and even eveningwear.
A play on graphics and scale comes through in a series of charmingly fresh checks. From smaller gingham to larger buffalo patterns, checks are the new graphic option.
Classic and contemporary designers alike embrace sporty, athletic styles like mesh-accented dresses, micro-fiber tops and lightweight, relaxed track pants.
MIDI AND MAXI LENGTHS
Midi and maxi dresses and skirts were the dominant lengths for spring. From skinny tube skirts to more voluptuous versions, the midi skirt was seen in collections in all the major fashion weeks. The maxi length took over the runways with its dramatic, yet bohemian spirit. Designers elevated the maxi with vibrant, yet glamorous prints and fabrications.
MICRO AND MINI BAGS
Designers get playful with scale, creating key shapes in shrunken proportions for arm candy that’s as decorative as it is diminutive.
A new generation of gladiators emerges with ferocious fringe, gilded finishes and bohemian flair. From flats to heels, the thigh’s the limit for the formidable gladiator.
