A new season is always an exciting time in fashion circles, especially when it’s the cycle that lifts us from dull winter days to the promise of sunshine and blue skies.
Some of the key looks for women this spring include soft and romantic silhouettes, with plenty of sleeve detailing and layers of floaty, tiered floral fabric.
In keeping with this untra feminine style, lavender has been a huge hit on the runways and quick to filter down to the retail racks. We’re not just talking a basic top or tee here however – be prepared to wear it in everything from suiting to formal wear.
Vibrant red is emerging as an on-trend hue, worn top to toe for a traffic stopping look, or if you prefer something more understated, in footwear and accessories. And after a season where grey featured heavily, many designers have lightened up and embraced crisp white.
Accessories refuse to fade into the background and make a strong statement in your spring wardrobe. Bags are ornate, and occasionally quirky, with more and more unusual shapes hitting the shelves.
Sportswear has influenced high street looks, making everyday fashion more cutting edge, but also very comfortable. It’s evident in bright colours, stripes and garments emblazoned with slogans.
The most fun trends to try this season? Invest in 1990s-style sunglasses and bum bags, feathers, and fringing.
