It’s that time of year again. Spring has popped up and it’s time to discuss which trends we will all be sporting when the sun finally decides to show itself. I know what you’re thinking, florals, for spring? Groundbreaking. However, florals are definitely out this year. Instead, think check prints, high necks and tulle (yes, that stuff found on wedding dresses). Style the trends however you want in order to produce your own style! And shop the following trends at high street stores such as New Look, Debenhams, and H&M. You can also find up to date trends for this season over on the ASOS website.
Ruffles are one of the major trends to come out of fashion week this season. Think cowboy chic and arm ruffles. This can be mixed with the gingham style also emerging from the catwalk this year. Ruffles are great for dressing up or down, and can be found in the majority of on-trend stores on the high street and online.
Pair a ruffled shirt with some dress down jeans and you’re ready for the office, or for date night. Pair the ensemble with heels and you’re ready for drinks with the girls. This really is a great statement piece for Spring this year.
Activewear will never go out of fashion, it seems. Need to go to the shops? Activewear. Need to walk the dog? Activewear. It’s taking over sweats as the new go-to “slob” ensemble. Activewear really is an effortless way to look as though you’re busy and going somewhere important. Even if you’re just nipping to the shop for milk and some biscuits. Currently, brands such as Nike and Adidas are paving the way with fashionable activewear with their star-studded endorsements and high-end fashion shows. Find fashionable activewear items on their respective online stores and high street counterparts.
Yes, that amazing ethereal material you find on wedding dresses is making a mainstream debut this year. Expect to find bright tulle dresses and shirts on the high street this season. Pair a tulle shirt with a bralet and tailored trousers to create a perfect spring office look. Or, if you’re looking for something a bit more out there, take a look on the ASOS website for some amazing off the shoulder tulle dresses in an erray of colours and lengths. You can also shop the tulle trend in H&M.
Gingham is a style of print you will more than likely see on schoolgirls this spring instead of grown adults. However, the Gingham trend is proving to be a front runner in terms of trends, with many fashion bloggers, such as Helen Anders, sporting the style in many of her OOTD looks. Style gingham shirts with pigtails, braided updos and jeans to create a beautiful and effortless house on the prairie look. You can also find gingham paired with tie waists and cold shoulders to showcase a bit more of an eccentric look. Not a fan of the gingham look? Take a look at our next trend, we think you might like it if you love being bold.
Hot. Pink. We have been waiting forever to see this trend to make its comeback. Bold colours are something we can’t wait to see this Spring, however, the Fuchsia trend has us shook. Whether you’re wearing your fuchsia through your lipstick, or you have bright and bold statement fuchsia pieces in your wardrobe, you will be bang on trend with one of this Spring’s hottest looks. If you’re opting for a fuchsia skirt or top, match it with the same colour again, or even contract it with a bright blue or yellow. Remember, bold is in, why not take it to the next level.
