Say goodbye to your little black dress. That’s right, the classic wardrobe staple has finally met its match – the little white dress. Seen on the runways from Paris to New York, the little white dress is the dress of the season. Think white is a bit too drab? Think again as this season brings us new, unique silhouettes, flirty fabrics, and overt details. From pure white to ivory, it seems as if designers couldn’t get enough of the flirty frock. White shift dresses and trapeze dresses ruled the runways of Tanya Taylor and Rebecca Minkoff’s spring shows. And while white was the hue of the moment, both designers chose to play up the looks by utilizing textured fabrics and statement making accessories. At Celine, the little white dress trend came alive in the form of romantic fringe. Clearly a fan of the trend, designer and street style queen Marissa Webb featured several dresses in the color of the season. Sheer panels, peek-a-boo fabrics, and eye-catching embellishments added just the right amount of edge to the designer’s frocks – of course, the black studded heels didn’t hurt either. Proving that white is anything but boring, Clare Waight Keller, the creative director of Chloé, sent models down the runway in barely there white lace frocks, paired with sexy gladiator sandals. Leaving little to the imagination, the designer proved that less is definitely more. The best part of this trend is that you don’t have to be a model to look like you’ve just stepped off the runway, since the little white dress is both easy to wear and to accessorize. Not only does the trend offer a fresh, chic look but it is incredibly versatile too as it can easily be dressed up or down, with the right accessories. And remember, pair your dress with a bold lipstick, bag, or shoes to top off your look.

Whimsy and imagination surmount this season with several designers displaying cartoon or art inspired prints for their S/S 15 collections. Across the board, in both women’s and menswear lines, we’ve spotted graphics and patterns displaying cartoon characters (popular icons and original creations) as well as cartoon-like landscape imagery, line drawings, and hand-painted art.

One of the most popular lines to display this trend in the menswear space is MAN by Bobby Abley, which featured the likeness of Disney’s The Little Mermaid characters on solid color sweatshirts and jumpers. These are certainly one of the most popular animation or cartoon inspired pieces this season, and they retail for about $800 to $900. A few other notable designers that featured cartoon inspired prints in their spring collections were Marc by Marc Jacobs, Antonio Marras, DSquared2, Philipp Plein, and Raf Simons. Also, we mustn’t forget Coach’s incredible spring collaboration with contemporary artist Gary Baseman (you know his work from Disney’s Teacher’s Pet and the art that appears in popular board game Cranium), which features dark and playful cartoon “creatures.”

We have a feeling this trend won’t be going anywhere, anytime soon, because we’ve already seen a few cartoon looks walk the runways of fall 2015 fashion weeks, like Moschino’s Looney Tunes looks. Also, Marc by Marc Jacobs continued the trend into its fall collection as well.

Cartoon prints are exciting, playful, and sometimes even nostalgic. They are perfect for adding a sense of fun and color to our spring wardrobe, and very effortless to style – especially for casual, dress-down, looks.
