So, today is the first day of Spring and now that the snow has finally gone, we get to think about packing away our winter wardrobe and embracing the warmer weather. There are some amazing trends happening this season, and we’ve scoured the online stores to find some of the best examples you can buy, right now, to stay bang up to date.
SS18 runways saw a huge array of styles and ideas, including a huge 80’s revival, square necks, pastels, pencil skirts, ruffles and rouching, and bum bags (are they ever going to go away?) However, I wanted to focus on the 5 key trends I love the most; and are probably the most wearable. Nothing better than finding some gorgeous pieces that work right now, but can become classics too…
So. In no particular order, we love…
After the grey, drab winter months, there’s nothing better than lighting up your life with a huge, loud, splash of colour. The key to this is mixing colours without fear; no toning down with neutrals but instead colour blocking, and being brave enough to break some of the old rules. Pink and Red definitely CAN (and should!) be seen together this Spring. This trend was all over the place, most notably Christopher Kane, Oscar de la Renta, Hermes, Stella McCartney and Versace.
If it screams 80’s, it’s in. Bum bags, Big Shoulders, Loud Logos…and sequins. The choice is to stay subtle or go all out, as either option is a good one! Just ask Tom Ford, Versace and Marc Jacobs.
Fringing has been lurking around for a while and it’s huge this season. There are some beautiful pieces around, just make sure you stay stylish, we don’t want to look too country….(or do we??) Favoured by Calvin Klein, Celine, Loewe, and Bottega Veneta.
I LOVE a pant suit! They scream chic style, they are easy to wear and there are so many options that there’s something to suit every body shape. Definitely a look you’ll find me in this Spring (and beyond…) Seen at Tom Ford, Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, Dior and Chloe. Good enough for them?? Good enough for me.
Effortless, easy to wear, and hugely flexible. Dark Denim was seen at Mugler, Max Mara, Tom Ford and McQueen…and looked incredible. Will somebody…stop…me….shopping….!
