It’s been a week of great exploration and revelation when it comes to all things spring 2015 fashion, so without further ado, here’s some important trends I spotted that you may want to pay attention to for the upcoming season:
Decorative Elements: Jewels have migrated onto clothing and appears to be staying there for the time being, with highly visible jewel and fabric adornments of all sorts appearing on clothing.
Voluminous Shapes: There was indication that this trend was going to take off last season, and it appears to have officially landed.
See Through Layers: Decide how you may want to deal with it (or not)m as everything from transparent tops to dresses have made their way down the runway.
Cropped Tops: Sticking around for another season, they’ve taken on a some sophisticated form by belling out toward the bottom, paired with high-waisted gaucho pants that hint at the suggestion of skin, opposed to actually revealing some.
Embroidery and Lace: The more ornate, the better, and pieces with unique placement, such as on the sleeves or around the collar, tend to be the most memorable.
Maroon, Yellow, and Pastels: These were by far the most common shades used, with the biggest surprise being such a deep shade of red (maroon) for spring. Nonetheless, you’ll get extra mileage out of that berry lipstick you’ve been using all winter!
Pixelated Floral Prints: From painterly to purely techno-prints, floral is always a must for the spring season; it just comes down to how it will be translated for that particular season. Botanical, topiary-inspired green prints have also been extremely popular, refreshing and modernizing the floral trend for 2015.
Metallic: This can hardly be called a trend, since its been around for so long, but rest assured, all-over metallic with a dash of a mirror-like, holographic element to it is more popular than ever for spring 2015.
See below for some of the most stunning looks from 13 amazing collections.

Alejandro Injelmo: Taking a step back from the geometric, modern footwear forms that he ha become known for, more classic footwear options were found for spring 2015, complete in a combination of super hot trends for spring 2015: exotic skin, metallic, and holographic prints and effects.Mara Hoffman: It truly is difficult to whittle it down to just one look from this print prolific designer, however this print epitomized best the mood of the collection and inspiration (California, the designer herself), and one I can see being HUGE, come spring 2015.
LIE SANGBONG: The “Dream Road” collection was exactly what it set out to be; both serene and mesmerizing, the lineup had a nod toward couture while remaining in the realm of wearability, executing a masterful understanding of proportion and movement in the clothing,
Badgley Mischka: Tufts of filmy layers desceded in tiers off of a handful of gowns, which reinforced the delicate temperature of spring alongside softened hues of peach, purple, pink, and blue.
Rosie Assoulin: One of the most talked-about newer designers, Assoulin reinforced the new shape of things to come this spring, literally, by showing a collection of robust silhouettes cut away from the body with a merging of old world glamour and downtown cutting edge style.
David Tlale: The dominant hue of this collection was a champagne, blush tone that was worked into light, flowing layers for both the women and men’s looks, but the most elegant version of it, in my opinion, was this jumpsuit, certain to elongate even the most petite of frames.
Carmen Marc Valvo: On his 25th (silver) anniversary, the designer introduced menswear looks while the evening gowns and beauty took some subtle inspiration from the celebration with silvery streaks and strand interspersed throughout.
Jenny Packham: Everything she touches becomes downright lovely, and spring 2015 was no exception; every look was radically different from the next, yet spot-on for the gal who desire a downright stunning look from the office to the gala event.
Noon by Noor: This collection gives the Noon by Noor gal plenty of options from bold embellishment to paired down sophistication in a palette that provokes both sportiness and austerity.
Pamella Roland: If one thing can be said about the designer, it’s that it shows that she certainly knows dresses, and can thus manipulate bold fabrics, like all-over silver metallic, to a dazzling effect.
TaoRay Wang: Less is certainly more, as it was clear with spring 2015 that each piece had been worked and reworked to perfection, in a color palette that could befit dressing seasonlessly.
Naeem Khan: There is nobody around like Naeem Khan, which is reinforced each season by his breathtaking gowns which under the guidance of his deft hand, feel effortlessly well-constructed. Inspired by Lauren Bacall, there was a wide range of glamorous looks, although in my opinion, this glistening gold number took the cake.
Georgine: The ’70s came to life on the runway, but broken apart, each piece resonates with today’s modern needs and concepts of being beautifully dresses.
