1. MINIMAL SLIP DRESS
This season’s slip dresses are stripped (pun intended) of their boudoir influences like satin and lace trims, and instead are more of a nod to ‘90s minimalism. Spaghetti straps with simple necklines are easily enhanced by a choker for after dark.
Eyelet combines the laidback ease of its South of France roots with a ladylike elegance, making it a versatile warm-weather staple. This season, details like side cutouts and modern necklines update the summer classic.
3. SHIRT DRESS
Breezy yet tailored, the shirtdress is perennial. For spring, we’re loving clean lines and tunic-fits in classic menswear palettes like Oxford blues and pinstripes.
4. BILLOWING MAXI
With their relaxed, A-line silhouettes, delicate necklines, and minimal embellishments, this season’s maxi dresses embrace an understated glamour that’s as well-suited to city evenings as beachside getaways. STELLA MCCARTNEY Amiel Gown
5. ONE SHOULDER
The asymmetry of one-shoulder is a wink to subtle sex appeal in an otherwise simple dress. Slight draping leans toward a Grecian, resort-y vibe, while a more fitted silhouette feels sporty and fresh.
7. LACE-UP NECKLINE
Necklines sporting strings dominated runways for Spring ’16, offering a sensual spin on styles ranging from girly peasant dresses to simple T-shirt dresses and more overtly sexy body-cons.
