Besides its success on the main social media platforms, there is another way of finding out whether a specific dress or, certain pieces of clothing are going to become next season’s must-haves or not – checking out their success on Moda Operandi. Moda Operandi is, in fact, not only an online fashion retailer that allows anyone to preorder the latest and best ready-to-wear pieces fresh from the runway, but it is also a good indicator of the next season’s main trends and most worn pieces. Based on the latest purchases, we already have a good hint of what the spring 2016 best selling dresses are on the website, and you won’t probably be surprised to discover some of them at all.
Let’s start off with spring 2016’s number one item – the Carolina Herrera pastel pink button-front shirt-dress that according to an unofficial source (Moda Operandi always declines to reveal how many people actually buy the clothes, accessories and purses on their website) has been sold almost 100 times already. It’s a sophisticated see-through dress, which mixes masculine cuts with feminine lines in the perfect spring 2016 androgynous style. Herrera’s piece is in fact one of next spring’s best pieces to acquire and if you want to include this soon-to-be must-have to your wardrobe, you can get it now on Moda Operandi.
Delpozo’s golden gathered shawl (buy it now here) with white fringes and a Klimt’s allure is another item on the list of the spring 2016 top-five best selling pieces, and is shortly followed by a delicate and uber-feminine Etro sundress (buy it now here), made of layers of floral fabrics and sheer inserts. Delpozo’s golden shawl is probably one of shoppers’ most interesting choices, as it is an unconventional piece specifically made for women who are not afraid to experiment with their style.
Dolce & Gabbana’s poplin dress (buy it now here) with floral high-waist belt and vivid colors that definitely helped the Italian duo rise in rankings is another best selling item from the spring 2016 fashions, along with the Etro ethnic mini dress (buy it now here), made of a slightly metallic fabric and an ethereal ombré motif. All these dresses’ price tags range from $2,300 to more than $9,000, and are actually quite easy to get (if you can afford them).
Moda Operandi’s top-five best selling items show how well perceived the latest spring 2016 trends are, and how successful the fashion shows actually were. Each piece on this list is stylistically different from one another, proving how eclectic fashion is. Given the fact that the fashion industry is currently undergoing some major changes, such good sales prove it is indeed walking the right path.
Moda Operandi’s infallible system consists of 3-to-7-day-long trunk shows, where anyone can preorder his/her favorite item paying a 50% deposit at the time of the purchase. Then, once the item is on the way to the shopper’s wardrobe, the other 50% directly goes to the website’s virtual cash register. It is indeed a good and safe system, which allows anyone changing his/her mind if not satisfied with the purchased item (within 15 days).
The trunk shows generally start at 8 am EST, and anyone can register to the website’s mailing list to get notified about the upcoming shows. If in trouble, you can even ask for a personal stylist that will guide you diligently through your purchases. Moda Operandi is definitely the best way to literally keep in touch with the latest fashion shows and be one of the first to wear the season’s trending items.
