See Which Three Trends Made It Into H&M Spring 2016 Lookbook

Share |

H&M have an affinity to create cool things and their Spring 2016 collection isn’t an exception. Although the looks are more relaxed and beachwear-like, there are sports style and city wear notes finding their place in the collection.

It’s always interesting to see how fast fashion brands will interpret and translate the runway trends into wearable pieces and H&M chose three trends for this lookbook.

Stripes

Stripes are easy but it can be difficult to make them attractive for a fashion-savvy buyer. In this bright coatigan the brand married their collection colors black, white, navy, and bright orange in stripes of different width and ended up with a functional piece that I’d reserve for outdoor or sports activities.

Tie Dye

Another of the seemingly easier ones, tie dye trend is strongly associated with those funky hippie dresses. Well, here the orange white long sleeve tee with dark grey trims makes for a great companion for off-white pants.

Abstract Prints

This spring surely promises to be bright and dynamic when it comes to printed fabrics. Prints complex and often mixed can be a challenge to style and wear, but if you aren’t bold enough to try things out you’ll never have the best things. This H&M dress combines floral, chevron, and stripe patterns and coolest neon colors.

Although I’m not a fan of this kind of style, many of these trendy pieces look wearable enough. There are interesting bikinis peeping from under dresses and tees and sports leggings that would make great gym ensembles. What do you think?
