For her

The subtle ’70s
Last year saw the return of the ’90s, but 2015 sees a retro revival of ’70s fashion. Don’t throw out your bell-bottoms just yet, as this trend is all about subtle touches in lapel shapes, swirls, suedes and juxtaposing colour combinations. This Dina Zaki zebra motif top will work with denim wide-leg jeans or a pleated midi skirt.

Retro gingham
Gingham is the print of spring 2015. Think sweet all-American screen sirens such as Judy Garland in A-line creations or channel your inner leading lady – Brigitte Bardot in a gingham button-down and pencil skirt.

Monochrome
The classic black and white combination isn’t so much a new trend, since it never goes out of style. Opt for a pair of black leather high-waisted shorts and a light, crisp white shirt for an office-turn-party outfit from Reiss.

Patchwork
It might just be time to raid your grandmother’s closet and fish out those old blankets and tablecloths, as patchwork is back in 2015. Quirky patterns and vintage styles in stitched-together fabrics work well on coats and in denim ensembles.

Statement shoes
Sometimes the best part of getting dressed is choosing what goes on your feet. This season it’s all about straps, from gladiator sandals to ankle-strap loafers and T-strap sandals, or these from Steve Madden.

Suede parade
The soft, delicate fabric is making a comeback in 2015 and it’s all about the colour and silhouette. Gucci showed structured fitted wrap coats along with short-sleeved blouses and high-slit dresses. While Derek Lam opted for suede separates with belted dresses giving the look a ’70s vibe.

Romantic lace
Designers including Elie Saab, Chloe and Givenchy have made lace in every colour for spring 2015 and have presented soft and delicate looks featuring transparent cutaway dresses with frill detailing and feminine romantic textures.

All white

Nothing says spring fashion quite like a head-to-toe white look. Start the year with a clean slate in a simple, white beach dress or Jay Ahr’s laser cut long-sleeved crop top.

Fabulous florals

While floral motifs for spring isn’t exactly a groundbreaking trend, it is a necessary one. Whether they are big and beautiful or small and clustered, this trend never felt fresher.

Denim deluxe

From dark-wash to embellished and clean-cut indigo, design houses such as J.Crew have embraced denim this season. The casual fabric looks great when mixed with ’70s style pieces such as mustard hues
and wrap-over cardigans.

For him

Arts and crafts
When it comes to men’s fashion trends on the runway, it sometimes doesn’t translate to the high street. While we don’t suggest you go out and buy a head-to toe art attack suit à la Dolce & Gabbana spring 2015, there are plenty of quirky tees and pop-art emblazoned jackets that look super trendy.

Sporty minimalism
Designers sure know how to make sportswear look high-end. From the wide cut of luxe trousers to the playful use of prints and masculine colours – it’s all about bomber jackets, printed shirts and contemporary street wear accessories.

Nautical fashion
This style is all about comfort mixed with style. If you look the part you might just be able to act the part of captain at sea. Navy and white is a classic colour pairing, embrace stripes and rubber sole shoes.

Boxy shorts
Shorts dominated men’s fashion week, and why shouldn’t they? Shorts are a spring/summer staple and this season it’s all about oversized boxy cuts, such as those shown by Alexander McQueen. They come in all sorts of patterns and styles from embroidery to brocade.

Dapper Gent
Some menswear fashion trends can be difficult to pull off for the average guy, but once a man puts on a dapper jacket or polo shirt – he instantly looks a million dirhams. Throw on a pair of dinner trousers in a pastel hue and tassel loafers for a smart casual look.
