Since we’re at the end of the fashion week presentations in New York, London, Milan, and Paris we’ve have done extensive research and found some commonalities among them.

High fashion is hard and pretty much impractical to wear in you day to day life. You’re not going to wear a full on ruffles and tulle to the office or a transparent top that shops your nips to your cousins wedding. With that being said, you don’t have to skip out of style because of the unrealistic fashion show looks. You can simply incorporate a couple of these trends into your wardrobe this year to get high fashion at a fraction of the cost.

1. Pastels

Add baby pinks, lilac, pale yellows and oranges, and Robin’s egg blue to your spring and summer wardrobe to achieve one of the most prominent trends throughout all of the fashion week presentations and runway shows. The delicate colors, like this soft blue mini dress from Urban Outfitters, will definitely make you feel super feminine, pretty, and dainty.

2. Trousers

Power plaids and stand out pinstriped trousers have been and are still going to be a big trend for the warmer seasons. Pants in the heat may seem unappealing, but brands like Brandy Melville make trousers that are made of lighter and breathable fabrics. So you can still be business casual af, while not dying of a heat stroke.

3. Vintage Florals

Vintage florals are a stand out trend in the modern renaissance revival. Long elegant sleeved dresses with slits that billow in the wind and corset style/cinched waists are perfect for spring brunches and wedding season.

5. 80’s

80’s elements were hit on the runways. Make sure you have items with strong shoulders, silhouette sleeves, vibrant and bold color schemes, and cinched waists to be on top of this trend. Check out River Island’s off the shoulder neon bandeau bathing suit top.

6. Layered Tee’s

80s fashion isn’t the only decade that made a statement during the fashion weeks. The 90’s has snuck their way back in with layering t-shirts under cami’s and in fashion week street wear under dresses.

7. Checkers

Checkers aren’t just for your picnic blanket. This print is not for the faint of heart. So if you’re bold enough go for this all over checks mix cut out dress from River Island or the checks down with these pants from Urban Outfitters with a solid shirt.

8. Sequins

Sequins are intimidating, they’re a statement element in any outfit and will ensure that all the eye will be on you. We saw all over sequins in show across the board, like this one from Nasty Gal.

9. Yellow

We’re carrying over the yellow and mustard trend from the fall and we are still loving it! Brands have already released collections with clothing items in all ranges of yellow. If you’re too afraid to go bold with solid yellow articles, check out this vertical striped oversized blazer from Urban Outfitters. It’s definitely inspired by the 90’s movie Clueless and the yellow is toned down by the navy and white stripes.

10. Transparencies

Think lingerie, but you can wear it in public. We’ve already seen a lot of brands hopping on the transparency train with layering cute bras under a see through mesh shirt or like this bustier dress from Revolve. Transparencies don’t have to be that mesh lingerie feeling either, clear plastic boots and colored clear sunglasses lenses also count!
