When it comes to spring and summer pieces, colour is obviously the first thing that comes to mind. And as much as I adore dark wintry hues, I do have an affinity for colour. Something which is not exclusive to interiors. Though this season proves to be distinct, shying away from the usual brights and emphasising the achromatic. Something which I am very much enthusiastic about.

Following on from Farfetch's Insider Guide, I was asked to share some of my own favorite S/S 16 selections.

 GINGHAM  
One of my favourite types of geometric print and one that I believe is terribly underrated sartorially. It does have its moments though, but I liken them to one-hit-wonders. They burst onto radar, impress then we simply dismiss. This time round I'm predicting a major comeback, one very much unlike it's previous history. And I believe so because I've been loving the idea of taking this classic and modernising it by way of enlargement. It really makes the print more playful and high fashion and less country casual; like this dress by Victoria Beckham.

 LACE 
It's those questionable pieces, the ones you're unsure if are meant as undergarments or for the world to behold. Delicately transparent lace, the kind you associate with lingerie and silky smooth silks, oh so reminiscent of 
Calvin Klein in the nineties. But I'm not coveting the usual feminine etherealness we've become so accustomed to. I'm talking about a new era of lace, one that entails obvious opulence with lashings of tenaciousness. Gothic elements combined with effeminate and all in glorious dark hues (with the occasional rose quartz thrown into the mix).

 COLD SHOULDER 
Cold shoulder or more like cold arms. The evolution of the standard off-the-shoulder into this flattering bohemian like cut. Halter style at the front, leaving the shoulders and arms exposed albeit dangling with frivolous fabric pieces that no doubt catch brilliantly with the wind. I am so excited for this trend, be it in crop form or longer, these pieces are undoubtedly flattering on any body type, even those of us with broad shoulders (who, mind you off-the-shoulder are our worst enemies).

These are my picks for the coming season, what are your predictions or favourite trends?

  26. I'm definitely feeling the off the shoulder trend coming on strong and I adore it to death! Since last year my off the shoulder collection has been growing. It's just so pretty, especially when it is accompanied by ruffles. Great inspo you have on the blog!

  34. I am not really familiar with the summer trends this year, but thanks to bloggers like you I know there is a trend "gingham" (excuse my ignorance!). I like the cold shoulder trend. Will definitely search for at least one piece of it to add to my summer wardrobe.

  35. Well, I've had my fashion education for this week, Sonia and from the looks of my closet, I sure did need it! I am sooooo out of style but have hopes to be at least closer now that I know Gingham is trending my way. I LOVE Gingham!!!

    I do like the off the shoulder approach; on the right shoulders or should I say off the right shoulders, lol...

    Thanks for waking up my fashion eyes, Sonia...I am learning, albeit, s-l-o-w-l-y...
