Spring Fashion Trends
By Katie Jackson
This spring season, fashion is kicked up a notch with a modern twist on style favorites. The free-spirited bohemian style, or boho-chic, is now presented as evening wear, featuring stunning, loosely fitted silhouettes and draped fabrics in the form of long, formal gowns. New iterations of America’s favorite textile, denim, dominated the runways while suede, with a slight seventies vibe, makes a huge comeback. Whether you are looking to amp up your wardrobe or create a new spin on a style staple, we’ve gathered the top spring 2015 trends that have made the biggest impact straight from the runways of New York, Paris, London, and Milan.
Fresh off the runways of Proenza Schouler and Emilio Pucci, fringe is making a huge splash in the spring 2015 style scene. Wear it in the form of a flapper girl-inspired dress, a jacket, or shorts adorned with long, unexpected streamers.

BOHEMIAN CHIC As seen on the Valentino, Vera Wang, and Joseph Altuzarra runways, the already romantic look has been transformed into something even more spectacular. Designers lightened-up their evening wear with loose and whimsical fabrics that prove to be supremely alluring.

PINSTRIPES This boardroom basic has undergone a lively makeover, especially with the shimmery hues as seen on the Chanel runway. But while refined pinstripes, in any color, will always be in style, the design on cropped pants and trousers is a must this season.

Gone are the days where leather is among the most worn fabrics of the stylish and fashionable. Suede has returned, and it’s here to stay. Offered in a seventies-inspired yet updated aesthetic in the form of dresses, skirts, and tops in subdued colors, suede is quickly reclaiming its place as one of the most coveted fabrics.
