5 key fashion trends for Spring 2015  

World MasterCard Fashion Week wrapped up with the highly anticipated Fashion Saturday, an additional day of events added to the calendar that highlighted all the best fashion moments of the week for the general public. It was a great day to hang out with the girls, and shop the designer pop-up markets while munching on classy hors d’oeuvres and sipping champagne before attending one of three Spring 2015 Trends Presentation seminars to learn how to achieve the latest fashion and beauty trends on your own. The third trend presentation installment was presented by CityLine host Tracy Moore, style expert Afiya Francisco, Maybelline’s Lead Beauty Artist Grace Lee—who was the brain behind all 35 beauty looks at World MasterCard Fashion Week—and Assistant Hair Stylist for Redken Cindy Duplantis. After showing a curated selection of the best collections seen over the week, Lee and Duplantis discussed beauty and hair techniques, while Francisco highlighted the major fashion trends for Spring 2015. To get you through the imminent months of layers upon layers of fuzzy clothing and onto greener pastures, here are the light and fresh fashion trends that were rounded up from a week of non-stop runway showings. Keep these in mind when prepping your closet for next season. printscollage

1. Prints on prints Whether it's mixing different patterns together at once, or sporting one print from head-to-toe, Spring 2015 is about going bold and bright with prints, whether soft or graphic. boho collage

2. Boho silhouettes "While it is really ladylike, it's no longer really fitted as we're accustomed to seeing. It's looser, it's more romantic, it's soft," said Francisco. It's also a flattering, forgiving way to come out of months of carb-filled hibernation.

3. Bare midriffs For the girl who wishes to show a little more skin, jump on the surprisingly long-lasting midriff trend. Slight flashes of skin appeared in most collections during World MasterCard Fashion Week, which was ironic, as most show attendees were bundled up in fall jackets and ankle booties. We cannot wait for spring.

4. Modern femininity As noted by Francisco, elegant fabrics and "new silhouettes that define femininity" in whites and pastels are big for spring. They're also a sophisticated way to change up your tried and true seasonal wardrobe switch over.

5. Sheer statement pieces Sheer, diaphanous fabrics were layered with solid pieces to demonstrate that the everyday woman truly can pull off this trend. Just be sure to take your skirts with you when passing through subway doors. For more fashion news, visit our Style Desk blog.
