To help pin down some of the more prevalent trends for the coming year, we’ve put together Spoonflower’s own 2016 trend report (according to 2015’s New York, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks’ and compiled using designs from the Spoonflower community) to keep you stylish and informed through the rest of Winter and into Spring and Summer!
Animal prints never truly fall out of style, but frequently see a resurgence. Popular in the Fall/Winter months, this year’s styles especially favor bold, classic leopard designs, as well as the lesser seen zebra prints.
Bold patterns and colorful, vibrant blooms on sheer backgrounds. The Spoonflower Marketplace has tons to choose from!
Like other trends on this list, tribal prints ebb and flow in popularity. Be on the lookout for bold, busy patterns with both muted and bright colors.
A staple of most wardrobes, patterns can make a statement in almost any situation. 2016 will feature large, checked patterns and all-over prints in houndstooth, plaid, gingham
We love stripes. They’re simple, strong, and versatile. They’ll fit in anywhere–from baby blankets to t-shirts to pillows.
If you haven’t already seen some of these patterns, colors, and prints in the wild, be on the lookout–they’re sure to pop up soon! I’m looking forward to seeing all of the fun things you all make this year using these trends. Happy 2016!
