Hands up who is looking forward to Spring and Summer. The relentless February rain has got us thinking of the sunshine, holidays and Vitamin sea.
Firstly, let’s talk about the colours you’ll be seeing on the highstreet in the coming seasons, they’re certainly not for the faint hearted but what an incredible choice you’ll have. Pantone released their plethora of beautifully bold colours while adding neutrals like bright white and ash keeping some classic undertones. Keep your eyes peeled for the beautiful classic blue, saffron and flame scarlett to name but a few. Shades such as Biscay Green, Sunlight and Coral Pink are themed on the beauty of the ocean, imagining the waves, corals and even beach huts just gives you the hints of the Spring and Summer vibes. The great thing is, as well as adding new styles and colours to our wardrobes we’ll all have brightly coloured pieces we can integrate with the new, I for one will be making the most of my blues. Play around with colours, add a bright with another bright and bring in one of the neutrals like brilliant white, beige or ash.
So now let’s talk about one of my favourite things in fashion, prints! Let’s think BOLD, big florals, colourful checks, polka dots and beautifully fabulous rainbow stripes.
The 70’s inspiration on the catwalk as we can see in the return of the flare will also be bringing vibrant tie-dye to our wardrobes, love it or hate it you’ll look fab in this print on your holidays.
Animal prints will still have a place in our favourite looks and although leopard print still has it’s place on the highstreet we’ll be packing a punch with a lot more zebra print. Be loud and proud with it, mix your animal prints and make a statement with your outfit. An animal print also looks fabulous teamed with a bold colour as well the prints themselves appearing in many different shades. Red leopard, blue zebra and pink snake have been gracing the high street over the last couple of seasons.
The big, bold and beautiful florals have me very excited for Spring and Summer, whether it’s in the form of a maxi dress or a gorgeous shirt to go with your jeans. You’ll be treated to florals in many of the colours that feature in Pantones choice of mood lifting colours. I love the rose prints as seen below, with beautiful pinks and reds.
I’m looking forward to featuring some of my finds over the next few weeks with links to the items that feature the above. Let me know what your favourite styles you’re looking forward to wearing over Spring and Summer.
