The past weekend London, the fashion capital of the world, was buzzing and I made it my mission not to miss a chance to be part of it. Last year, I headed over to London Fashion Weekend 2015 for the House of Holland catwalk and we left feeling inspired by all trends we saw and all the shopping we did. This year, we attended both Spring/Summer 2016 catwalks; designer and trends, and everything looked so amazing that I would have no problem in wearing everything right from the catwalk. The day started early and had tons of fashion inspiration in store for us.
Designer Catwalk: Temperley London
To be honest at first I was more excited for the trend catwalk that would later follow but I was honestly left rather impressed with how beautiful everything from the Temperley London collection looked. Alice, the designer, made the spring/summer collection wearable enough; the main highlights in my opinion were the bohemian airy dresses, loose cut pants and various prints that exuded a Mediterranean vibe and were simply summer chic. To complete every look, models sported lace up sandals which were big last summer but will be back strong this year once again and hats with their hair tied back, trend alert spotted?
Trend Catwalk: 4 Spring/Summer 2016 Trends
Bootanicals are back and were all over the catwalk. It's a given that florals pretty much go hand in hand with spring/summer (and to be honest I have no problem wearing flowers through autumn and winter too, see here) but this year they are bigger than ever. Patterned tops and bottoms made their way down the catwalk graciously and got me in the mood of adding a bit of English countryside into my Spring wardrobe pronto.
Americana, inspired by North America style as the name suggests, will be hot this season! Red, white and blue stripes as well as varsity jackets, sparkles and a country vibe are safe bets when trying out this trend. In short, the bolder the cut the better! The catwalk saw a lot of fringes, leather and denim; 3 of my favourite things for spring/summer.
I made it my mission to wear more colour this year so I was glad to see Pop Art come up too. Clearly, the concept here was bright and bold colours. It's true what they say, colour is the new black and avoiding clashing colours is a thing to be left in the past. I personally can't wait to give this trend a try and mix a few colours I wouldn't dare of putting together before.
And finally, New Romance which can be defined in 3 words, lots of lace. This last trend was an absolute dream to watch on the catwalk, the designs were delicate and feminine but not too girly, and illustrated pure elegance. All looks were great for warm-weather and softer shades and sexy cuts are what I will be looking for to make this trend work.

For the day I chose a comfortable yet stylish look and as soon as I saw these dungarees I knew they were perfect. The air was chilly so I paired them with a grey turtle-neck and boots (with extra thick socks) to keep me warm. I didn't think much of the bag I was taking, all I wanted was something I could fit my camera in and this MK one did the job exceptionally well. I have more shots from the weekend on my instagram (@pamella_scalfi) so make sure you follow me there too!
This wraps up this super long post, so if you made it to the end give yourself a pat on the back! I hope you liked seeing the latest S/S 2016 trends and collections and let me know below which trend is your favourite!
Thanks for reading beauties and wishing everyone a nice week ahead!
