For Spring/Summer many people opt for bright colours, but this is one S/S 16 trend that steers away from that. If you, like me, don't really like wearing bold colours then take reference from the latest tailoring trend 'Fluidity' for styling and colour inspiration. Beautifully draped ankle skimming dresses, floor sweeping skirts and trousers, and loose fitting waterfall coats, all in soft blush hues. Seen on the runway at the likes of The Row and Tibi, this tailoring trend is both elegant and timeless. This is sophisticated dressing for summer.

Satin and silk are the key fabrics, both ideal from draping. I have put together this edit of best the luxury market has to offer when it comes to soft tailoring in neutral shades.
1. Tibi £800 / 2. Maiyet £720 / 3. The Row £2130 / 4. Jason Wu £1125
5. Helmut Lang £404 / 6. Calvin Klein £1279 / 7. Burberry £1595 / 8. Theory £500
Some of the red carpet's most influential style icons have already got started following this trend including: Dree Hemingway, Jaime King, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Elizabeth Olsen and Selena Gomez. As you can see, accessories should be kept to a minimal. Same goes for hair and make up.
