With London Fashion Week just around the corner we’ve taken a look at some of the biggest fashion trends that have emerged so far for SS16.
The world’s most coveted fashion designers have been unveiling and showcasing their latest collections for SS16 in the run up to London Fashion Week. Whilst we may not all be able to afford that glamorous Gucci or Dolce and Gabbana dress, that doesn’t mean we can’t still recreate the season’s most sought after looks.
Whether you want to update your wardrobe with a whole new outfit or simply accessorise with a new pair of a la mode frames, we’ve rounded up our 5 favourite SS16 trends from the fashion world.
So far this year the catwalk has been teeming with romantic puffy sleeves, ruffles, lace and floral patterns. Think pretty, flowing hippie dresses in whites, creams and very pale pinks.
These Truth 009 women’s glasses come in a light, dusky pink that fits right into the romantic trend. These dainty, ladylike frames have thin, metal sides and feature stunningly ornate, jewel-studded, 3D metal flowers at the temples.
In SS16 metallic gold takes a step back and silver takes centre stage. This season designers have been getting creative with a huge assortment of different materials, from silk to leather, all in varying shades of metallic silver.
These Truth 124 frames are on-trend this season with their thick, shiny, metallic silver sides, decorated with an elegant floral pattern. These rectangular frames make an elegant finishing touch to any outfit.
This year’s catwalk takes inspiration from Latin fashion, with ruffles and tiered outfits taking the limelight. This lively style is often characterised by contrasting reds and black.
These Mary frames by Brink Couture feature delicate, metal frames around their rectangular lenses and elegant, dark metalwork at the temples on the sides. The frame’s durable, plastic arms come in marbled reds, oranges and black, making them the perfect accessory for a Latin-inspired outfit.
This year designers are embracing lines and stripes in bright, vivid colours. Bold graphic stripes have featured in numerous SS16 collections, from Dolce and Gabbana to Tommy Hilfiger.
Love stripes but not ready to dress from head to toe in them? These Georgia frames by Brink Collection will add interest to any outfit by subtly accessorising with stripes. These plastic, rectangular frames have fun brown stripes across their arms and transparent brown frames to the front.
If you like a bit of sparkle then SS16 is set to be the season for you! Tiaras and sequins have played a large part on the catwalk so far this year. Models have been adorned in high-shine materials in an array of vivid colours and shades.
These affordable Party Eyes for Ladies 26 plastic frames come in two shiny, jewel-like colours, a deep magenta pink or bright, forest green. The starburst pattern on the arms adds some further glitz to these fun frames.
