Though it may not feel like spring in certain parts of the country, I’m dreaming about the warmer weather and what’s in style for Spring 2016.
What are the hottest trends for Spring 2016? While you may not follow the trends and what’s in style, Spring 2016 is paying tribute to many of the fashion trends of the 1990s. Here is a breakdown of what’s in style for Spring 2016!
What’s in Style Spring 2016
The 1990s was the most popular decade for inspiration at the SS16 runway shows. I’m a 90s alternative rock junkie so of course I’m happy that some of my favourite styles are back –slip dresses, chokers, grunge look, bomber jackets, and mules.
It was New Year’s Eve in 1995 maybe? I wore a long black slip dress I purchased from Victoria’s Secret. I think I still may have it my closet (don’t ask). Well, the slip dress is back and looking sexier than ever!
While the slip dress is intimidating because of its clinging silhouette, you can wear an A-line version, or pair the dress with an oversized sweater or leather jacket.
If you want to wear mules, go for a heel or a flat, and pair it with ripped jeans, a moto jacket, or a penciled skirt and blazer for work.

Let’s not forget the 90s mini-backpack too! It’s back again, but this time more sophisticated and less grunge.

Stripes are never out-of-style, but many designers are into bold super stripes for spring. An all-over striped look is trendy this season. But if you’re not so bold, try an over-sized striped blouse or top, or even a bag.

Extra Long Earrings
Shoulder-grazing earrings are the accessory to have for Spring 2016. This is one of the easiest style updates for spring. Buy two new pairs of earrings to clash, or pick some from your jewelry box.

Off the Shoulder
There is nothing quite sexier than an off-the-shoulder blouse or dress. Bare a little skin and pair it with a statement necklace, or long earrings.

I know many of you wouldn’t dare wear these cropped pants, but they are a must-have this season. Tuck a blouse into a pair of culottes, and throw on some pointy toe stilettos and you’re put together.

Culottes, $17; H&M
An ankle-tie shoe is another trend with variety. Wear a pair of flats with a tie at the ankle only, or dare to strap on the stilettos with the laces around your calves.

Add a little romance with a white lace top, or dress.

The trench coat will always be a classic but this spring, it’s trending in a sleeveless silhouette. The trench vest is a perfect layering addition to your favorite outfit. Pair it with a dress, or a blouse with jeans and heels.

The midi has been trending for a while and it’s here to stay. Play with different silhouettes; either A-line or pencil. Wear it with a crop top if you dare, or tuck in a button-down shirt.
