Femininity with a sporty twist is the theme for spring 15 at InWear, with relaxed silhouettes in soft silks, viscose and lightweight jersey. Standout items include dresses in shorter draped styles or maxi lengths. Skirts are longer, in slim pencil or skater styles, and trousers come in a new wide leg or as a culotte. Jackets include a collarless wrap design and a dusty pink suede biker. Suiting in blue tones is particularly strong, such as a navy suit with hand-drawn white stripes. Brush strokes are a new print story, as are cherry blossoms.
