All the top spring 2016 fashion trends

We know, you guys, it’s so weird to be thinking about spring clothes when it’s barely fall. But believe it or not, the spring 2016 fashion weeks have come and gone, giving us a glimpse at what everyone will be wearing next season.

Here are the best spring 2016 fashion trends, straight from the top runways.

Low-rise pants:

After season upon season of high-waisted pants, we finally have a reason to start doing our ab exercises again. Don’t worry, high-waist devotees – there were plenty of high- and mid-rise pants on the runway. It’s just that now we have another option on the table.

Fringe:

Fringe is still in, but next season’s fringe is different than a lot of the fringe looks this season. The latest thing is a long, skinny, raffia-like fringe – and it’s everywhere!

Lace has been big for a few seasons now. What sets the lacey looks at the spring 2016 shows apart is that they’re all alluringly sheer. If you’d rather not bare all like the model at Badgley Mischka, you can layer your sheer piece over a bralette, cami and/or shorts.

You can even wear this trend now, with our cool Roselyne Top in White.

Skirts over pants:

This is one weird late nineties trend that we never thought would come back –and yet, here it is. We’re especially partial to the wrap-around skirt at Chanel – it’s almost like a backwards apron and that’s sort of cool?

Fishnet:

Valentino

Yes, the head-to-toe fishnet looks at Valentino and especially Alexander McQueen were pretty daring. Most of us probably aren’t bold enough for a full-length fishnet dress, but a top like the one at Balmain could be fun for a night out when balanced with a knee-length skirt.

Animals:

Gucci

Marc Jacobs

Let us clarify – we don’t mean cheetah print or snakeskin (although both made an appearance or two on the runways). The big new trend is pieces with pictures of animals on them – think a dress with swans on it at Marc Jacobs or a sweater printed with a tiger’s face at Saint Laurent.

Overalls:

If you’ve been resisting the resurgence of overalls so far, you might change your mind come spring. Part of the runways’ 1990s revival, overalls were everywhere. We liked seeing especially innovative takes, like the two-piece overalls-inspired outfit at Moschino.

Slip dresses:

Speaking of the 1990s, the world’s simplest, comfiest, sexiest outfit is back – the slip dress. Celine and Givenchy’s runways were particularly sleepwear-inspired, showing several variations of the look.

Leather:

Traditionally, leather’s always been sort of a fall fabric, but now you don’t have to put it away come spring. Designers had fun with the classic material when creating next season’s looks – we saw everything from edgy cutouts to a ’90s Barbie-style shorts outfit that only a fashion girl could love.

Buy our vegan-leather Light My Fire Dress in Burgundy now and you’ll look on-trend basically forever.

The sporty look:

Don’t worry, there’s a way more high-fashion way to do athleisure than walking around in head-to-toe Lululemon. The spring runways were all about mixing sporty pieces with more sophisticated styles. Think board shorts with a blouse at Anna Sui and track jackets over long skirts at Chloe and Marc Jacobs.
