Fashion. It’s great, but it’s a bit confusing at times. Don’t wear bootcut jeans, do wear them. Mini skirt, midi skirt, maxi skirt. Bright colours, pastel shades, monochrome. It’s always changing, and it is hard to keep up. So, we’re being very helpful on this blog and bringing you the A-Z Spring Summer Trends – in four handy parts!
Part One covers A-G, and then we’ll be back tomorrow with H-M.
A is for Art Attack
As seen on the catwalks of Celine, Chanel, Jil Sander, Prada and more, fashion is having an art moment this season. Think paintbrush prints like this H&M skirt, Picasso-esque abstract prints, and bold, bright patterns.
B is for Bombers
Bomber jackets are back. We’ve blogged about them already, they’re so hot this season. Start wearing a padded, classic bomber like this navy one from H&M (£24.99) now, and then choose a lighter fabric and perhaps a patterned bomber when the weather picks up.
C is for City Shorts
Amongst all of the skirts on offer, fashion goes and brings shorts into the mix. Not beach shorts, or festival denim shorts, or short, holiday shorts. Nope, think longer, almost at the knee city shorts like this amazing ombre style pair from Jonathan Saunders Edition for Debenhams (£55). Wear with a sharp jacket and a cool pair of heels for an excellent on-trend office look. C could also be for Culottes – give them a go this season as well.
D is for Denim
Denim is having a moment that isn’t jeans this spring. Denim jackets, pencil skirts like this stonewashed one from New Look (£19.99), gilets, dresses and more are all in our favourite fabric this summer. Embrace the denim!
E is for Embellishment
Who doesn’t love a bit of embellishment? Lucky us this season then, because it is everywhere. On bags, jackets, tops, knits – you name it, it’s been embellished with jewels, sparkles and more. This gorgeous shell top from French Connection (£75) has huge embellishment, the perfect foil for the pastel pink.
F is for Florals
Amanda Priestley would be crying this season with florals just everywhere. But The Devil Wears Prada magazine boss would have to admit that florals for spring, whilst a cliche, are a HUGE trend this year. What more can we say? Small florals, bit floral prints, florals on white, on black, on everything. Just go with it. We love this floral dress from Debut at Debenhams (£100).
G is for Geometric
Geometric prints are the perfect alternative to florals – or maybe mixed in with florals. If you want something bold and out there, this trend is for you. Go for bold all over geometric prints in a dress – clash prints, wearing trousers and tops in different patterns. It’s a fun trend, so have fun with it. This fab hexagonal print dress from New Look (£25) rocks this look.
Tomorrow, it’s H-M in the A-Z Spring Summer trends
