Winter is coming over!

As much as we enjoyed snuggling up in our baggy jumpers & boots, its time to come out of fashion hibernation and get ready for SS17.

So we’ve put together the 4 key spring trends to help you shop for those important pieces this season.

Ruffles

Ruffles are set to be HUGE this season. Don’t just take our word for it either, according to InStyle they are “THE detail of the season”.

Here’s 3 ways to rock the look this season:

Formal

True Decadence Sleeveless Lace Ruffle Detail Mini Dress – £78.00

With the arrival of spring you can expect a few things – chocolate, daffodils & wedding invites. This pastel hued number is perfect for keeping you on trend and looking fabulous at any weddings you may have to attend.

Office

Fashion Union Petite Ruffle Shoulder Detail Shirt – £24.00

This ruffled shirt ticks all the boxes in terms of trends this season, with it’s pink hue & cut out shoulders. Pair it with some black skinny trousers & courts for a understated office look.


Casual

Fashion Union Petite Lace Yoke Ruffle Detail Blouse – £24.00

For a more versatile piece to work into your wardrobe why not try this cute white ruffled number. The lace panel to the top gives a nod to the sheer trend that is also set to appear a lot this season. Dress it up or down with skinnies or matching shorts for an all white look as shown above.

Utility

Now’s your chance to finally channel your inner Lara Croft with belts, trenches and khaki. This trend is about wearing items that are functional, comfortable and clean cut.

Work

Nike Woven Jumpsuit In Khaki – £85

This jumpsuit is perfect for work. Just as your mother used to say about those Clarks shoes you dreaded wearing to school, this outfit is comfortable and sturdy. It will see you through those hectic Monday mornings and you’ll be thankful you choose to wear it on your commute home. Like the model, pair with trainers to ooze office coolness (should your office allow it).

Running errands

ASOS Cotton Shirt Dress – £25

Why put a shirt and trousers on, when you could slice the time in half and buy a shirt dress to slip on in the morning. Both comfortable and smart, this is a great way to wear the trend in a timeless and classic way. A shirt dress is perfect for a British spring as it can be layered with tights and a jacket.

Evenings

Khaki wrap short sleeve midi dress- £45.00

Looking for something that can take you from day to night? This dress is functional yet fancy with the front split detail but long enough at the back to be SFW.

Calling curvy girls; add a belt to your shirt dress to show off your waistline and accentuate those curves!

Stripes

Stripes are another trend set to be big this spring/summer. You’ll find inspiration coming from everywhere such as seaside deck chairs to pyjama style prints. One thing that was certain across all variations of this look was that the stripes were always vertical. This is the most flattering style as it slims & lengthens your silhouette!


Smart Casual

Lost Ink Adia Stripe Paperbag Waist Dress – £40

This striped dress is perfect for any garden parties that may pop up and can be worn straight from the office. Team it with with a loose bun & strappy heels for a laid back romantic look.



Work

Boohoo Sasha Striped Tapered Trouser – £16

Who says fashion can’t be comfy? Spice up your office attire up with these statement trousers. Pair with a plain tee to let them do all the talking and introduce a pop of colour using your accessories.



Play

Esme Halterneck Striped Tie Belt Playsuit – £12

How cute is this little striped number? This playsuit is great for lounging around on those warmer summer days & would look even better with a tan! The tie waist makes sure that your curves aren’t lost among the fabric.

Shoulders

Shoulders are a key feature this spring, being accented with cut-outs, slits and padding. So wether you want to pad or show off your shoulder, we’ve got your back – shoulder, with one trend styled 3 ways.

Power Shoulder

White Military Blazer –£39.00

Nothing screams a woman in power, more than a blazer. The more structured the better, with shoulder padding being a key trend this season. This military blazer comes in black, white, red, khaki and blush, so you can choose to go bold, classic or understated.


Cold Shoulder

Petite grey graphic print cold shoulder t-shirt dress – £20.00

Give a nod to the graphics trend with this slogan-ridden, shoulder cut-out t-shirt dress.


Sexy Shoulder

Blue silky one shoulder sleeve shift dress -£30.00

The one shoulder combined with a bell sleeve screams 80’s but we love this modern throwback. It looks luxurious but is so affordable and perfect for a night out. Want to mix up the trends? In case the utility trend is a little too minimalist for you, they also have this dress in Khaki.
