If it’s any indication that our culture has become completely overstimulated by the amount of information and images being fed to us through our smart devices, the runways this year for Spring 2016 was a red flag. No a white flag. No a sequins, feathers– leather/denim flag. In September, designers sent everything down the runway from romantic ruffled dresses, to a 70s wide legged bonanza, to street thug passion and silky slip numbers. In what appears to be a somewhat desperate attempt on the designers' part to catch the consumer's eye actually quite left us all feeling like we need a colossal dosage of Ritalin.
So incase you were wondering what trends to wear for Spring this year, here are our top pics from the endless trends we saw walk down the runway. And for all you fashion ADD victims, don’t worry– we’ll keep it short and simple.
1. Jailhouse Rock
Vertical stripes made a triumphant return to the runway… as they seem to do every season. But for some reason we’re especially loving it for Spring 2016. Maybe because it makes us think if Vogue were to take over Sing Sing Correctional, this would be their uniforms. However, make sure to steer clear of this trend’s jealous evil cousin– the “Horizontal Stripe”.
2. Tie Dye
Yes, it’s a thing. And we think it looks pretty chic. Actually, it just reminds us of eating S’mores around the campfire late at night and that’s good enough for us. Mmmmmm. S’mores.
3. Denim it up
Remember when style experts used to say never wear denim on denim for the sake of looking like a denim condom? Yeah?! Well, that’s not true anymore for Spring 2016. IT’S CALLED FASHION PEOPLE!

4. Off the Shoulder
Yeah, okay– there’s actually only so many other ways you can say “cold shoulder”. So spare us for not coming up with a clever name. In layman terms: show off your damn shoulders. Not your boobs.
5. The Slip Dress
The always effortless, always sexy, and for the love of god please don’t wear Spanx with this– “Slip Dress”. Nothing says I’m fashionable and on trend like looking like you just got slayed in the boudoir.
