Womens fashion Trends – Spring-Summer 2015November 25, 2014
If you’re a dedicated follower of fashion then you’ll know that when the catwalk shows are on, they’re a good predictor of what will be in the high street stores in Spring-Summer 2015. Of course there’s always something that you would never wear, something outlandish that would encourage mockery and mirth if you were to venture out in daylight wearing it.
Trends for Spring-Summer 2015
However, there are some wonderful looks that give good indications of what will filter down into the high street in Spring-Summer 2015
Think indigo denim
Denim was big in S/S fashion 2015, as demonstrated by new designers Almeida, Faustine Steinmetz and more well-known designers such as Gucci and Burberry. Skirts, dresses and shirts will be going indigo and not just your traditional jeans.
The seventies was a definite favourite for fashion trends 2015, with Tom Ford, House of Holland, Hilfiger, Pucci and Prada showing off their love of the seventies vibe. Keep in mind that wide leg flared trousers are going to be a “thing,” in fashion trends for 2015, with high waist trousers tied at the front with a bow, slouchy and wide is the brief, a nod to the seventies flares, but better.
Established fashion names brought their own special touch to the catwalk showing they knew a thing or two about fashion with Gisele at Chanel, Lily Donaldson at Top Shop and Namoi Campbell at Emilio Pucci.
No make-up was popular with Marc Jacobs with a look that spelled minimal and natural.
Blue is the colour and flats are the shoe
Different shades of blue were evident from dark to light and every shade in between. Flat shoes were given prominence, giving a strong indication that they will be feature in fashion trends 2015 next spring, but have flats ever been out of fashion?
Victorian dress style was seen on the catwalk too with gathered necklines, covered buttons, and ankle length skirts.
Vivienne Westwood, a designer who has always created clothes with an historical reference – brought fairy tale characters with bodices and bustles to the stage, a little Snow White here and Little Bo Beep, Little Miss Muffet, and Red Riding Hood coming down the catwalk. Figure in the prints that come with their own messages and you have some delightfully complex fashion pieces.Painted doll faces, smudged red lips were make-up highlights with beautifully draped fabrics, as usual a Westwood triumph.
As well as minimal make up, Marc Jacobs brought us shaggy hair dos and military style frocks. Big buttons, lace, and wool and linen put together to create a luxury Orwellian army of luxury.
2015 fashion trends for shirts then, are military or uniform in nature, white or sheer. Shirts can be white, mostly and sleeve length is optional, long or short. Shorts are in too, long ones.
Pleats and sheer fabrics
Sheer is in by the way, transparent clothes are definitely in vogue next year along with pleated skirts, trousers and shirts. Sunray pleats are especially popular with emphasis on metallic shimmer, with grey, silver, bronze and plenty of shine.
Coming back to the seventies Pucci showed his colours at the catwalk with hippy, bohemian looks that are given a contemporary twist. Crochet dresses, but with plunging necklines, ponchos, maxi dresses in flimsy fabrics, psychedelic shades reminiscent of the 70s, with those flares, waistcoats and halter necks.
Over at the house of Lanvin there was drapery and Grecian style dresses with black, white and navy and daring slits almost to the thigh. Again metallic colours surfaced with pearls, lace and a little hint of seventies bohemian.
To summarise, for Spring-Summer 2015 fashion trends you need to think pleats, flared trousers, seventies fashion, flats, shirts, Victorian and denim. Also spotted were bows, embellished shirts, brocade, Broderie Anglais, long shorts and the colour burgundy, forewarned is forarmed.
If you’re a fan of vintage then you’ll be happy to hear the word “seventies,” but remember to try and combine it with something contemporary to give it a fresh look. Pleats can be sourced easily enough and perhaps mixed and matched with some more modern pieces. Remember the metallic shimmers and lots of burgundy.
