A Slightly Silly Spring 2016 Trend Guide

Spring is finally upon us, people. And as a new season dawns, it's time to reevaluate our wardrobes. What needs to go? What's missing?

When adding to your closet, you could walk blindly into your favorite stores and just go with your gut. I'm all for that sometimes. But I also like to have some idea of current trends before I shop for the season. That way, when I see a piece I like, I might also have the satisfaction of knowing that it's also on-trend.

So I thought I'd do a little recap of runway trends from Spring 2016 Fashion Week. Because that was like six months ago and who can remember all the way back then? I can't even remember what I wore yesterday...

There's a reason why I'm a good source to get this info from. I know I should have mentioned this before but I'm totally a supermodel.

Don't believe me? Why? Because I'm only 5'6"? Because I'm "only" a size 4 and not 00? Well, you'd be surprised what a mega pair of spanx and some super high heels can do. And I'm completely offended that you doubt my modeling abilities. I've watched enough America's Next Top Model to know exactly what to do. I've got smizing down.

I modeled for several fashion lines during fashion week for Spring 2016. And I was kind enough to share the pictures that featured trends that I'm most interested in this season. Behold the completely authentic results:

Hermes
1. Pleats
This is by no means a new trend but it's one that is still going strong.  This may be one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your wardrobe, too. A pleated maxi skirt is a great option.

Oscar de la Renta

2. Ruffles
Layered ruffles are big this season. The more tiers, the better. Like a cake.

Sonia Rykiel

3. Sparkle
Sequins are still big. Who doesn't love an excuse to add a little bit of shine? And are you really living if you're not risking temporarily blinding those around you? If you're not wanting to be too bold with this trend, a sequined top under a blazer or cardigan is a great option.

Sportmax

4. White Shirt
Of course, a good white shirt is a wardrobe staple. But this season, there are a lot more options that aren't just you're basic blouse.

Lacoste Spring 2016

5. Silver
My silver heels will be happy to know that they're still in style. This is a trend that can be easily implemented with shoes and accessories. Or, if you're feeling crazy, go for a monochromatic silver shirt and pants ensemble like the one I wore here:

Alexander McQueen

6. Victorian
This such a gorgeous feminine trend. Think lace, ruffles, rose prints. I'm all about adding a bit of a Pride and Prejudice/Downton Abbey feel to my wardrobe.

  1. OMG never ever stop with the photoshop! hahaha Seriously it cracks me up and hey, fashion should never be taken too seriously right? (; I totally need to work on smizing. I need to do some research on that, pronto. I am not big, I just have extra post baby skin that has no where to go. I tried on number 2 in your ruffles section on Saturday. I really loved the top, it was just a hair too short in length, and I have a very short torso. I was bummed. Great picks!
