Spring is here, and it’s time to ditch the winter coats and heavy knits. If your wardrobe is in need of a warm-weather revamp, you’ve come to the right place. With blue skies and sun-drenched days on the horizon, it’s time to embrace spring/summer style. Here are some of the hottest trends to try now!
When it’s warm outside, the last thing you want is to wear tops or blouses made from thick, clingy fabrics. The good news is that this spring/summer, lightweight sheer designs are everywhere. Think loose-fitting shirts and floaty, feminine dresses. Opt for a maxi for daytime drinks, a trip to the races or a spring wedding or go for a Bardot top and cut-off denim shorts if you’re chilling out at the park or hitting the shops. If you’re not a fan of the girly look, you can toughen up your outfit with an oversized denim shirt, a backpack from Designer Online or some flatform trainers. Take care when you’re copying the sheer trend to protect your modesty. If you’ve got a completely transparent dress, for example, invest in a nude slip to wear underneath.
If you’re a fan of the 80’s, the catwalks bring good news! Power shoulders are back in a big way, so now is the time to embrace your inner diva. You can go all-out with metallics or velvet for a dramatic look, or you can keep things slightly more understated and subtle with an LBD with shoulder pads.
Florals work all year-round, and they’re a great addition to any wardrobe. Now that lighter days and warmer climes are on the way, replace dark colours and bold prints with pastel shades, bright tones, and more intricate prints. You can wear florals in so many ways. Celebrate the trend in a patterned dress or a chic blouse or use floral accessories, such as a printed clutch or embroidered pumps, to liven up your spring basics.
Nautical stripes are back again this spring. A perennial winner in the warm-weather style stakes, stripes are easy to wear, and they add an instant touch of sophistication to any outfit. Opt for striped cigarette pants for a formal occasion or a nautical top with skinny jeans, a cross-body bag and leather sandals for an effortlessly trendy daytime look. Stripes are often feared because people worry that they are unflattering. If you’re petite or you’re eager to look slimmer, stick to vertical stripes.
Spring has arrived, and before we know it, summer will be here, and it’ll be time to hit the beach, fire up the barbeque, and spend as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors. In the warmer months, it’s all about looking great and being comfortable. Avoid heavy fabrics and clingy styles and go for items that you can throw on with minimal hassle. Take a look at new trends online, get some styling tips, and have fun with spring/summer fashion! You don’t have to tick off every trend with every outfit. Combine elements, mix and match and choose styles, colours, and prints that you love.
