While every fashionista dreams of fanatically following trends from the runway, this isn't practical in the real world. So, we aspire to do the next best thing - take inspiration from them. Whist it isn't that easy, it isn't impossible too. Read on to find out how you can transplant catwalk trends and turn them into street smart fashion.
As we will soon bask in the spring/summer season, I will be covering the trends from the Spring/Summer collections in this post.
1. Bright Future:
Sequins ruled the fashion runways in the Spring/Summer Fashion Shows. Straight from the 80s, this shimmery trend is a great way to stand out. Sequins are no longer just for parties. For casual wear, pair a dull sequinned top with black pants. The sequin adds some fun to the outfit, elevating it to a whole new level.

2. Bold Prints:
A trend that continued from last year, wearing bold prints is an easy way to give tired outfits an upgrade. This year, bold graphic patterns is the new floral. Bold patterns attract attention and are powerful. Try out pieces with an edgy design; think asymmetrical, high-low, unique necklines, etc.

Every 90s kid will remember this nostalgia-inducing trend. Chokers re-emerged after celebs like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid posted pics of themselves wearing chokers on Instagram, and it took off from there. A great way to flaunt the neck and jawbone, chokers are available in various styles, colors and fabrics. You can pair it with just about anything, for a cute and sexy look.

4. Modish Denim:
Denims are strictly casual, right? Wrong! During the NY Fashion Show, designers strutted their creations where they paired denim - with evening gowns! I mean, who would have thought? The two blended so well together; it is definitely a trend we need to flaunt on the streets (or at fancy places, maybe). As denim looks a bit dull, pair it with some sequinned, satin or lace complements to make it look posh.

This flashy color is back, albeit in a subtle way. An audacious trend, neon isn't considered retro anymore. If done right, it can add a good dose of color to any boring outfit. You can use neon to monochrome or color block your outfit. Infuse neon through tops, skirts, pants, coats, shoes, accessories, etc. However, don't cross over to the OTT territory.

6. Fringe-y fun:
Fringe has been dominating the fashion scene for many years now. Fringe can be worn in the form of tops, skirts, bags and even shoes. However, to pull off this flirty quirk, you need to do some intelligent pairing. Do it well, and you can look chic, stylish, glamorous, or even edgy. A good tip is to treat it like a statement piece - one per outfit is good enough.

This summer, fashion swings between the classics and the crazy. The extent of dynamic and assertive femininity that is championed on the runway is unprecedented. There are so many options and combinations for fashion fanatics to try out. With the above in mind, you can flaunt fashion forward looks this spring and summer with ease.
