Ah! The balmy days of May have arrived. Yet another month, yet another decade in the world of fashion where fashion trends get stale quicker than you can say ‘Can I get that in red too?’ Nonetheless, fear not fashion mavens, Spoyl is here to save the day. If you were utterly clueless, don’t be. Let us be the Cher to your Tai (Hello, Clueless reference) and show you what secrets the fashion crystal ball spills for the month of May.
May fashion trends!
This neat fabric-fold technique has created a stir since late 2015 and has undoubtedly created a dent on spring fashion, this year. Perfect for those constantly on the go, the micro-pleat trend is one that solves so many woes. Easy to take from day to-night and unbelievably versatile, micro pleats are also springy and travel well. The micro-pleated texture is great for skirts and dresses adding modern shape to any silhouette, while also remaining unstructured, so the pieces will drape flatteringly on any body. Pleat-y please, may we say?
Fashion trends have a unique way of surprising us, and colour us shocked indeed. Sequins and sparkle just got a major transformation and have been incorporated big time into day wear too. If you thought sequins and all things sparkly were restricted to the affairs of the night, think again. Go festive with sequins and sparkle this spring. Try burgundy, green, and navy instead of more traditional black or silver for added unexpected, head-turning detail.
Romantic ruffles are surely the trend of the season. From international runways to Blake Lively’s recent Cinderella-esque baby blue gown worn at the Cannes Film Festival 2016, this style is huge right now and for all the right reasons. Tip: The Pantone colour(s) of the year or dewy pastel shades particularly lend a soft and tender charm to the mien.
