FASHION TRENDS FROM EUROPE
International fashion catwalks are back with a vengeance after a hiatus brought about by the global pandemic.
So, what’s trending right now?
Intense colour palette.
One of the big trends this spring will be colour. Brands have prioritized intense colour palettes … from fuchsia pink to chroma green. Although there are more subdued versions, many brands have echoed the neon trend, including Balenciaga, Valentino and Bottega Veneta.
Say “yes” to oversized.
One of the star trends during the European spring has been fluid and oversized trousers – and the comfort factor has seen these become a wardrobe favourite. Spanish brand Adolfo Dominguez has created high-waisted trousers with a rounded leg to amplify your figure. You won't want to take them off.
Up to the ankles.
The long satin slip dress is a versatile garment that has become one of the big trends for spring. Its big advantage? It goes with almost anything. You can wear it with sandals, high heels or trainers. And you won't need much more.
Through the skin.
This season’s star fabrics have one thing in common: they allow a cheeky glimpse of skin. Semi-transparent fabrics such as tulle, organza and crochet are at the vanguard of this look.
Stripes, the print that never goes out of fashion.
You're in luck. The striped garment you keep as your wardrobe staple will be a trend this season. Stripes of different colour, thickness and composition are on display. Brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and Adolfo Domínguez have given a new lease of life to this eternal print on shirts, T-shirts and dresses. Find your favourites.
