I couldn’t help but notice Fashion Week has been well under way. Everyone is talking about the FW 2016 collections, however if truth be told my mind’s on shedding the layers and moving on to spring. If you’re like me, you’re probably shopping for the next few months, so here’s a little recap of the top trends from the Spring 2016 Fashion Week runway collections for inspiration.

1. Suede Straight Out of the Seventies
Brush up on your ’70s trends because this one isn’t going anywhere for awhile, not that I mind either. Suede clearly is making a comeback. The luxurious textile was on the runway in the form of capes, patchwork, and trench coats. Shop my vintage ’70s pick here.

2. Pleat it
Think smaller and tighter for this spring 2016 trend. The micro-pleat was ubiquitous on the runways for Altuzarra, Boss, and Proenza Shouler. If you’re looking for interesting texture and structure in your wardrobe, this is the trend for you. This vintage satin pleated top is perfect for spring.

3. All Day Lingerie
Why not be a bit daring this spring and let your lingerie be seen. It may sound a bit cray but I am really loving this lingerie inspired trend which focuses on slip dresses and blouses made of pretty lace and luxurious silk and satin. It’s less T&A and more retro-Hollywood glamour. Try incorporating one of our vintage lingerie pieces into your outfit on a night out. You can add a faux fur stole, a wool wrap skirt, and a brocade coat to dress it up.

5. Down on the West Coast
From their cool bohemian vibes to their all year round sun-kissed skin, there’s no doubt California girls have got it going on. Designers from Anna Sui to Diane Von Furstenberg definitely took notice. Feel free to invest in maxi dresses, caftans, and crochet knits for that hippie chic look because these staple pieces never go out of style.

6. Orange is the New Black
Orange looks to be the color of the season, as well as other colors in the citrus family for that matter, so that includes lemons, limes, and grapefruits. If you’re afraid of overdoing it, keep your silhouette simple or just add a hint of vitamin C with an orange colored accessory, like this vintage Etro belt from the shop.
