THE BIGGEST TRENDS FROM THE SPRING 2016 RUNWAYS

'90S
Fashion is feeling pretty nostalgic these days, but of the decades referenced this season, the '90s were the biggest story — especially in Paris. Rave culture, minimalism, grunge and fanny packs all made appearances. You have been warned.

RUFFLES
Ruffles lined garments on an impressive number of catwalks. They came in many shapes and sizes, but most designers used them sparsely — and to great effect.

THE COLD SHOULDER
Shoulder cutouts - Off-the-shoulder - Asymmetrical necklines 
Shoulders were the go-to erogenous zone for spring 2016. If a designer had a chance to show them off, they took it. From off-the-shoulder tops to shoulder cutouts to asymmetrical necklines, it felt like no runway was left out of this trend. See below for examples of each.

CRUMPLED FABRIC
Ironing can be a bit of a hassle (especially if you're bad at it), but even if you're a pro, there is probably a more productive way to spend your time in the morning. Luckily, the answer to this is simple: pre-creased and rumpled clothing, of course.

MICRO PLEATS
In a season where pleats were a big story, many designers sculpted their spring silhouettes through micro pleats.

VICTORIAN
High necks, ruffles, bows and broderie anglaise were just a few of the common elements for one of spring's most popular trends — Victorian-inspired looks. This is one you may recall being popular for fall 2015 as well.

TRAILING TASSELS
Like a tail trailing from a comet, tassels (wide, thin, fabric, string, etc.) seemed to adorn every other look on the runway. Some were the result of a bow or some other utilitarian knot, others were just there for decoration. Either way, they left an impression.

PAJAMA DRESSING
You know that feeling after you get home from work and change into your comfiest clothes? Designers clearly want this to be a constant sensation for their customers come spring, and they showed more than enough daytime pajama options for everyone.

LATIN INFLUENCE
Ruffles, flamenco skirts and the color red came together in the many Spanish-inspired looks for spring 2016.

DECONSTRUCTED OXFORDS
There was a time when humans believed that there were only so many ways to wear an Oxford shirt. That time was before spring 2016, as designers showed endless creativity with this staple garment. Warning: Not all of them are work appropriate.
