It is time to look forward to lighter evenings and earlier mornings, it is time to welcome Spring! The Spring trends this year are sure to energise your wardrobes with splashes of colour, mixed prints and throwback styles.
Colour blocking high octane primary shades is the key look for Spring this year. Sun drenched yellow, bold blue and vibrant red should be the principal colours of your spring looks. Expand your colour blocking palette by adding rich oranges, grass greens or Pantone’s ‘colour of the year’, ultra violet, the more saturated the better.
For those who do not wear intense brights, ice cream hues are also taking the runways by storm. Continuing with the colour blocking prowess, match lilac with lemon or marshmallow pink with duck egg blue. Don’t be fooled by these delicate shades, they can be just as striking as the brighter colours. Team a pastel blazer or coatigan with tailored trousers or high waisted faux leather skirt, think power pastels.
Frills and Ruffles
Romance is in the air, February is the month of love and the catwalks have been showcasing all kinds of feminine feels via ruffles and frills. Styles ranging from glam to everyday to sophisticated and even a touch ethereal, all your wardrobe essentials have been adorned with frills this season!
Wrap it up
Wrap dresses are coming back in a big way this Spring. With a variety of fabrics and prints, they are perfect for everyone and suitable for all occasions, they are practical yet elegant. If you aren’t a dress wearer then do not despair, the same premise can be applied to the top version of the wrap trend. With the variety of sleeve lengths, fabrics and patterns, they too are suitable for any occasion. Just perfect for when you need a ‘jeans and nice top’ combo!
For the Guys…
Unlike the ladies, neutral colours are key for the guys this season. Think camel, coffee and off-white and pick two shades to mix and match. However, if you are one for colours try mixing the neutral tones with a bright tailored jacket. Rich, autumnal shades like burnt orange, burgundy and forest green are far easier to wear, and right on-trend this year. Try combining tailoring with sportswear to mix up your style this season, for example a hoodie with an overcoat is a simple yet effective way to relax a look to smart-casual.
