Katie’s Couture: Top 7 Predictions for Spring/ Summer Trends

Kathleen Troger, Staff Writer

Although it may seem like it’s not for a while, the spring/summer season is quickly approaching. It’s not always possible to predict exactly what will be trending, but I have a list of what I think will be popular during that season. 


1. Ballet Flats

Platforms had a good run, but it’s time for flats to shine. I’ve especially seen this gorgeous Miu Miu pair gaining traction.

2. Silk Fabric

Silk will never truly go out of style, but it’s likely to be notably present in fashion this year.

3. Metallic Fabric

Shiny, glistening fabric is the way to go this season.

4. Pearls

Pearls are the cheat code for creating an instantly elegant look.

6. Loose-fitted Fabrics

Flowing, mermaid-esque looks are a common theme in spring/summer runways.

7. Beachy Looks

Similar to the mermaid-esque dresses, oceanic-themed garments are starting to become popular, especially on social media.
