Summer Fashion Trends 2015

1. Bright And Sunny

Yellow was a huge trend during the 2015 awards season (especially at the Golden Globes), and it was everywhere on the runways. Everyone from Cushnie et Ochs to Michael Kors sent out garments in the sunny shade, and we love it. It's such a great shade for wearing while basking in the sunshine. And it's just a downright happy colour!

2. Shirt Dresses

A great shirt dress is perfect for summer -- it's effortless, polished, and always chic. Designers like Altuzarra and Rebecca Minkoff sent versions of the wardrobe staple down the runway, proving that a classic never goes out of style. Throw one on for a day of errands, a night on the town, or even over a bathing suit on a beach holiday. It's pretty much the perfect garment.

3. Blue And White

The combination of blue and white is crisp and clean, which is perfect for summer. It's also a great alternative to wearing the typical black and white. We saw the colour combo on plenty of runways, from Diane von Furstenberg to Adeam, and Alice + Olivia, and we can't wait to try it out for ourselves.

4. Kimonos And Robes

Robes and kimonos are the perfect toppers for any outfit, and their generally relaxed fit adds a little bit of casual coolness to an ensemble. Some of our favourites for the season were from Tracy Reese and Thakoon, who presented the trend in sleek satin fabric for an extra luxe feel.

5. In Uniform

The spring/summer runways presented us with various takes on the uniform trend -- from Marc Jacob's utilitarian khaki green looks to Tommy Hilfiger's "Sergeant Pepper"-esque military ensembles -- and to be honest, we kind of loved them all. Can we ever have too many army jackets in our closet?

6. Sex Appeal

This summer, don't be afraid to get a little bit sexy! Lace-up details (Givenchy), thigh-high slits, sheer fabrics (Balmain), and short skirts (Versace) were all over the runways, proving that it's definitely the perfect season for a little skin.

7. In Bloom

What's summer without some florals? We saw versions of the print presented by designers like Simone Rocha, Marni and Chanel, all of whom really went bold with all-over prints in bright colours. Flower power forever!

8. All-White Everything

Nothing says summer quite like bright white. The crisp shade was a huge trend on the spring/summer 2015 runways. Notable designers who tried the trend were Alber Elbaz at Lanvin and Christope Lemaire. We'll definitely be trying this out for ourselves once the warm weather hits -- we'll just have to be extra careful with our summer cocktails!
