How to wear 2016 spring trends
Incorporating seasonal trends into your wardrobe can sometimes be tricky. Don't worry, Peace of Cloth has you covered! We always approach fashionable options with comfort and lifestyle in mind. Even with runway looks that may be too over-the-top for every day wear, it's simple to keep your wardrobe work appropriate and weekend ready with these tips!
The Look: Designers showcased works of art on the runways with a myriad of materials. They piled on sequins, studding and sculptural fabrics to give frocks loads of texture.
The Trick: Accent your daily basics with a textured item. Try our Carole Jacket or Steffany Pant in Safari Stretch to give your outfit some oomph! The tone on tone pattern is just enough to add interest without being too bold.

2. Earn Your Stripes
The Look: Stripes are the print of choice this season, and it ran the gamut from thin to bold, and neutral to a mix of lively colors.
The Trick: Thin, vertical stripes are the most flattering type for this look, as they elongate your frame. Pair with a plain top to keep the focus on your legs. Try our Twiggy Skinny Jean with your favorite white t-shirt, or dress it up with a white silk blouse.
The Look: Romance and femininity were all over the runways, too, with a bevy of floral prints and dainty dresses.
The Trick: Choose a floral item in a versatile cut, such as trousers, or skirts. Pair with a solid or neutral colored top to balance it out. Try our floral printed Casey Crop Jean and Jillian Skirt and make a statement with bright, colorful patterns.

4. High Shine
The Look: Shimmery fabrics always pop up on the runway, but this season was more experimental with the use of props like broken mirrors and ruched foil.
The Trick: To make this look wearable, choose essential pieces with a hint of shimmer. The look can work for daytime when paired with solids. For a more dramatic evening approach, shimmer from head to toe with matching top and trousers. Start with our Shakira Jean Jacket or Celeste Cardigan in Shimmer Twill.

5. Sporty Street
The Look: The 90’s seem to be the favorite inspiration of designers for this season. Sporty wear is making a comeback too, with slouchy boy pants, sweatshirts, jean jackets and backpacks seen all over the runways.
The Trick: Casual Friday and weekends are the best times to rock this look. Throw on a pair of comfy track pants with wedges or sneakers. Our Felice Track Pant in Gotham Stretch elevates the look with a more high end fabrication.
