If you know anything about fashion, you know that it takes Montreal some time to pick up on trends. We're never really 100% relevant when it comes to street style or style in general and that's ok. We learned to live with it.\nOur city is like a cute younger sister of New York, Paris and Milan who desperately tries to be like them. She applies lipstick that doesn't match her skin tone, steals their dresses and does everything she can to be just like them... It never really works out and no one actually takes her seriously because, well... she's harmless and adorable. It's like, "Awww, you're cute, Montreal!"\nIn case you're curious about what's going on fashionwise in the rest of the world, I've compiled the ultimate "2016 fashion cheat sheet" if you will. Perhaps, next year, you will see these trends emerge on the streets of Montreal. That's if we're lucky, of course. It might take even longer... LOL.\nBut hey! Keep in mind, these are nothing but mainstream-ish fashion trends... You don't NEED to follow them. It's just cool to know what's up, if you know what I mean.\nSo here's what Spring/Summer 2016 looks like in the world of fashion:\nBohemian Geek Chic\nGucci mixes geek and chic in a way that looks very aesthetically pleasing. A lot of colours (dominant green), textures and GLASSES. Glasses are so hot right now.\nPhoto cred - Alexander Wang, Wes Gordon, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Yigal Azrouël\nBedroom Apparel\nThings you would normally only wear to the bedroom are now totally acceptable to wear in public. Silky and flowy, they're your best friends this spring/summer season.\nBold Colours and Pleats\nIt's go big or go home with this particular trend. Keep your black outfits in the closet or pair them with red accents.\nRomantic Off-the-Shoulder\nExposed shoulders are literally everything right now! Notice the X-like top trend as well and take notes...\nSee through dresses\nSo delicate, feminine and sensual. This trend is actually gorgeous. Thank you Fashion Week!\nRedefined White Shirt\nYour white shirt will come in handy this spring/summer. Go crazy, layer it with other white tops. White is power.\nPhoto cred - Derek Lam, Edun, Boss, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Sui, Prabal Gurung\nFringe\nFringe should never go out of style. When you move, it moves too and makes everything look so much more gracious.\nPhoto cred - Dion Lee, Adam Selman, Baja east, Veronica Beard, Altuzarra\nORANGE\nFire orange is the colour of the season. Don't be afraid to be bold, go all out and have fun with it. Do you see what Veronica Beard did there? Orange dress with exposed shoulders. Two trends, one dress.\nLow Rise Slouchy\nLow rise slouchy trousers are back! Remember when these were popular in the late 90's early 00's? Yeah. Totally "in" right now.\nPhoto cred - Gabriela Hearst, Opening Ceremony, Jil Sander Navy, Cushnie et Ochs, Suno\nDenim Dress\nDenim is very relevant right now, especially denim dresses and skirts.
