We may be battling a cold spell right now but in fashion terms spring has well and truly landed. Winter coats and heavy knitwear are making way for a easy breezy new season wardrobe with all the biggest trends rounded up here.

A distinctly feminine mood ruled over the collections for spring/summer 2016; from lingerie inspired looks at Celine to sheer pieces at Dior. That might all sound a little on the soft side but these looks were anything but. Whether it's the ruffled Balmain trousers or Loewe's tasseled sweater and skirt set, you won't fail to make an impact this season.
