The weather might be more blizzards and snowstorms than beaches and sunshine but in the fashion world spring and summer trends have already begun.
The weather might be more blizzards and snowstorms than beaches and sunshine but in the fashion world spring and summer trends have already begun. That means it’s time to put the jumpers into storage and start stocking up on the new season’s biggest trends. Ok, maybe don’t put the knitwear away quite yet!
It’s time to let out your inner mod and work this seriously chic look to the max. The good news in you can start wearing the black and white striped blazer, shorts or leggings you bought last spring and never thought you’d wear again. Work this look now with thick black tights or in summer with some 60s’ sunnies.
CUT OUT FOOTWEAR
Bloggers love cut out boots right now and they are the perfect shoes to make the transition between seasons. This can be quite a difficult trend to work. Try teaming them with lacy ankle socks in a contrasting colour to show this style off to its best. For when the weather gets a bit brighter, Topshop have some fabulous cut-out brogues to further work the look.
Hurrah! The fabulous biker has finally knocked the bomber of its spring and summer pedestal. Play about with this trend by investing in a jacket in a lighter colour or in a floral or oriental pattern.
Keep your look exciting and up-to-date by experimenting with bold and bright prints, be it animal or Aztec. If you’re really feeling courageous go for printed trousers—these can create a real high-fashion edge.
While a maxi dress will forever remain stylish, this season it’s all about the midi dress. The best look is a midi with a bodycon pencil cut. To avoid legs looking stumpy, work this length by teaming with chunky, mid to high heel boots. Midi dresses are also an easy way to work the graphic trend.
Anything Western is generally a good bet for spring or summer. Cowboy boots are everywhere right now so there’s a style and colour to suit everyone. The best thing about this trend is it’s so easy to work: throw on with jeans and you’re good to go.
So it appears they weren’t just a passing fad—crop tops and bralets remain high on the fashion agenda. Go for a lacy or basic jersey design to make this look summery. Perfect teamed with a high waist skater skirt!
WHITE AND BRIGHT
We can be sure summer is soon to be upon us when all the major fashion houses start churning out their white designs. Wear this trend now to look like a snow queen or save for summer holidays to look effortlessly chic. Neon has also made a seasonal return. Approach with caution to avoid imitating a traffic cone.
The best thing about spring and summer looks this year is they are so easy to work together. So whether it’s a graphic midi dress, a white biker, cut out cowboy boots or a neon bralet, this season it’s effortless to make the biggest trends work.
