Spring has sprung mamas! With sunny weather just around the corner, now is the perfect time to shake up your makeup, try a new hairstyle and refresh your wardrobe with a few new looks for the coming season. We’ve rounded up some of the hottest SS16 trends in beauty and fashion – so sit back, relax and prepare to be inspired!
SS16 Beauty Trends
After a few seasons of ‘no-makeup-makeup’ ruling the runways, we are pleased to report that the classic red lip is back and bigger than ever! This look united designers and makeup artists across the board with sexy red lipsticks making a big impression everywhere from Oscar de la Renta to Jason Wu and DKNY.
And just in case that wasn’t enough colour for you, blue eyeshadow was the break out look of the season! We saw everything from bold blue liners, to subtle touches, and special mention must go to the powder blue bandit masks at Chanel.
SS16 Hair Trends
Good news mamas – the big story this season when it comes to hair is the come as you are trend! This season more models than ever walked the catwalks with their own length, style and texture intact. In fact some of the most talked about models were the ones who dare to be different – think Ruth Bell, Edie Campbell and Peyton Knight. So this season is all about rocking your signature style and letting your hair do its thing, whether that’s tight curls, poker straight or a short sharp crop – this zero fuss all natural trend is perfect for busy mums!
And for those days that call for something a little bit special, the star accessory this season was the tiara! Seen everywhere from St Laurent to Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy and Chanel, if you don’t fancy going full princess on your night out, why not add a stylish embellished Alice band like our Ivy Hair Band to complete your look.
SS16 Maternity Fashion
Wondering what to wear to show off your newly revamped look? SS16 has fashion trends galore – here are just a few of our favourites….
Gingham had a major fashion moment this season – Victoria Beckham, Celine & Stella McCartney all revamped this classic feminine look to fabulous effect. Our Gingham Cotton Maternity Dresses in blush pink or blue are the perfect way to work the look. Along the same lines, Stripes – always a flattering choice for pregnancy – was another style making a splash on the runways at shows like Prada and Dolce & Gabbana. Try our Striped Maternity & Nursing Dress for a bump flattering look that’s perfect for spring.
But it’s not all stripes, checks and geometric prints, Christian Dior’s SS16 show was awash with romantic designs in feminine fabrics and soft pastel shades. Get the look with our Pink Printed Maternity Dress or put a bohemian twist on the style with our off the shoulder Crochet Lace Maternity Dress.
And when it comes to denim, from Chanel’s denim gown to Alexander McQueen’s stunning embroidered coat, this season is all about the statement piece! Pregnant fashion bloggers can’t get enough of our Premium Stretch Denim Maternity Jump Suit, and our Chambray Belted Maternity Shirt Dress is one of the star pieces in this season’s collection.
Happy Easter Mamas – enjoy creating your new spring look!
