TREND REPORT//SPRING TRENDS I LOVEAfter a long winter, Spring is finally in the air, and with the start of Spring comes, not only a change in weather, but a breath of fresh air when it comes to trends :)
Personally,I love Spring fashion as it means being able to incorporate colour and styles in to your wardrobe that won't be hidden by a big coat..
So, here are my top picks for Spring..
I LOVE this trend! Monochrome is so so easy to wear and will instantly make you look chic and sophisticated. When I'm choosing clothes, in general, I go for a more "dressed up", fitted look, and Monochrome lends itself so nicely to this look. These Cullotes from ZARA are so flattering and would easily lend themselves to other trends, not just Monochrome. And for £25.99 I think they would be great for a sophisticated ( and if you like, sexy) outfit.
Saying that, Monochrome can easily be dressed down. For example the Swing Dress from ASOS is so freaking cute! It's girls and fresh without being sickly-sweet and could be taken from day-to-night with merely a pair of heals! The long sleeves also make it great for this time of year when the weather can still be quite unpredictable. I also think that is Crop Top from Topshop, could be dressed down with high waisted shorts for festival chic, or dressed up with a leather mini and heals. Although Crop Tops are not the easiest trend to pull off I do love them, especially with something high waisted, showing just a flash of skin.
If you don't really fancy head-to-toe Monochrome, these Wedges from ZARA will not only give a hint of Monochrome to your outfit, but they are also super flattering as the light colour on your feet elongates the leg :) Or this cute Clutch Bag from Accessorize is great for a night out, and the gold hardware makes the bag look much more expensive then the £19 price tag!.
This trend, to me, is scary... amazing, but scary! My Wardrobe consists main of black, white & grey, with the occasional pop of colour, so when I saw this trend I admit, I was intimidated.
For those brave few who dare to wear this trend head to toe - go you, it looks amazing! However, for you colour-phobes out there, this trend can be really easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. This can be done by using a few bright splashes of colour, whether it be an eye catching Coral Lip ( Sleek Lip Colour - Papya Punch is amazing for this) or a neon clutch, such as this Tangerine Clutch - ZARA above ( which is a great cheap alternative to the Chanel Lego clutch), to brighten up your look. I actually brought the Two-Tone Yellow Dress -ZARA ,above,the other day and it adds a sweep of eye catching canary yellow to an otherwise simple dress. I think these items are great value, as they can be used time and time again to brighten up any outfit.
I chose these Hawaiian Print Heels - Aldo because I think they are the perfect combination of a sleek elegant style of shoe, and a fun, vibrant print. I think they would look amazing with a casual day time look with coloured jeans or denim.. or on the other hand, with a cute cocktail dress for a night out.
Finally, this Fusia Silk Blouse - Joy is amazing. It has small, loose cap sleeves which are super flattering if, like me, your conscious about your arms. The bright Fuschia colour looks great teamed with a leather biker jacket to toughen it up.
So, for Spring, Florals are the obvious trend which appear in shops year after year. They are so pretty and it just makes me happy to see so many beautiful prints in the shops. I would say that they are actually the most wearable trend as they are so girlie and soft.
I also love how diverse Floral clothes can be. For example, these Trousers - Topshop , are such a statement piece as the bold colours make such a contrast with the pretty design. On the other end of the Floral spectrum is this Dress - Ted Baker which , with its understated foral embellished top, is a less busy option for a floral dress. I have been lusting after this dress since I saw it in March in John Lewis, and I think it will have to be my next little treat.
Another thing which is great about Florals is that they lend themselves so well to accessories. There are hundreds of gorgeous floral bags, necklaces, earrings and scarves around at this time of year. One of my newly discovered sites is www.dollybowow.co.uk which is crammed full of amazing, unique acessories, clothes and home ware all of which are at great prices. This is where I found my new love, this amazing Floral Crown and Necklace. I love this crown SO much and cannot wait to get my hand on it, I just think i will feel so special and cute in this. I was especially drawn to this necklace because, as much as I love statement necklaces, it is so delicate and pretty.
