What I envision for Women’s Spring and Summer 2016 are bright and bold colors that will last all season. All styles and silhouettes will be minimalistic but with bold colors the style will sure make a statement. The theme would be called “Bold Minimalistic”. There will be solid colored shift dresses and tops just to name a few that are to be paired with neutrals for the spring season. The focus of the outfit would be the bright, bold pop of color that is apart of the outfit. Even though the outfit has a minimalist look, what makes it exciting is the pop of bright color that could be used through tops, pants, or even a handbag.
Just like the first signs of spring after a long winter, the same goes for the outfits in Spring 2016. As the colors of Spring flowers begin appearing, bright pops of color in outfits will also be appearing. The mood of this trend will be all about a bold, solid color that is refreshing and energizing.
The target market for this trend will be all ages of women but specifically ages 18-35. This age group will probably be most likely to interpret this trend the best. Yet, pretty much anyone at any age could pull of this trend on minimalism with a pop of color.
When this look is paired with classic silhouettes, the inspiration for this look could be taken from the 60s or 70s. The style has almost a mod look with solid bright colors. This style is always reoccurring. This trend could also relate to the Audrey Hepburn era. Where classic and simple silhouettes and styles were prominent. The trend “Bold Minimalistic” will definitely have elements of it will defiantly be evident in this trend for women’s spring 2016.
I feel that most designers would likely be supporting this look of minimalism. It is an easy trend that can be created and followed by many. This trend could be worn to work, running errands, or out on the town with friends. This style really is simple and is easy to include in any of ones outfits for spring.
This is a trend that could carry into other categories other than apparel. The trend “Bold Minimalism” could also easily be used in home design, art, and many other varieties of subjects. This style has been a popular choice before when it comes to apparel and home design as well as other areas, but trends come and go and when this trend comes back it should be your go-to. Its simplicity makes a big statement. This trend may not be anything that we haven’t seen before, but “Bold Minimalist” will sure make a statement with bright, bold colors this spring 2016.
