Spring trends top ten

It’s officially spring. Actually, it’s officially British Summer Time, but let’s not get too excited. Last time we stepped outside it was freezing. But…there’s no time like the present to get your wardrobe prepped for the warmer days.

So, we’re talking spring trends today – and our top ten. The spring trends we think you will want to indulge in, and those you should start bringing into your outfits now.


It’s bold, it’s bright, and it’s everywhere. We’re told orange is a difficult colour to wear, but we say it’s how you wear it that counts. It’s the boldest of spring trends to embrace, and we reckon it looks at its very best on a bright orange dress. If a small splash of orange suits you better, try  simple top. It looks brilliant on holiday, with a sunshine glow.

Denim is a safe fallback – we all have our favourite pair of jeans. But branch out with your denim this season – try a denim shirt, or playsuit, or skirt, as well as your classic jeans and jackets. And step out of your skinnies – try some on-trend flares!

3. Ruffles

Ruffles are a wee bit awkward, but they don’t need to be huge. Go big if you like, or just embrace a simple little ruffle on a sleeve, or a bikini.

4. Snakeskin

Animal prints are a perennial fashion favourite – this season it’s the turn of snakeskin as the print to have. Be bold and wear it all over a dress, or do it subtly on shoes or a bag.

9. Boho Folk

Yes, yes, it’s always somewhere around, but this season, the boho folk look is one of the top spring trends. A simple Tee, a full on folksy dress, or a cute playsuit. As long as there’s embroidery, fringes and perhaps the odd dreamcatcher, you’re doing fine.

10. Lace up sandals

If they were good enough for the ancient Greeks  – or was it the Romans? Or maybe both? – anyway, they’re good enough for us, and one of the top spring trends for your feet. Just watch them in the sun – you don’t want lace-up tan lines!

Spring outfit sorted!

It’s not spring, we know that, but in the shops, and in our fashion-filled minds, it is the spring season and it’s time for a spring outfit style injection, agreed?

We’re fed-up of this windy, rainy, cold weather. We’be had enough of Storm Jonas, thanks, and hopefully we won’t be seeing whoever is next in the storm alphabet for a while.

Okay, it is only January, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our spring outfit shopping list written, at least in our head, if not on paper.

To help you do the same, and get some relief from horrible old winter, we’ve scoured the stores, for spring outfit style.

Let’s start with H&M, who are channeling that very Parisian ‘effortless’ chic this season. it’s simple, pared down style, with little quirks. We love it. Team a cute denim mini (£14.99), with a cold-shoulder top (£12.99) (bare shoulders are in, or out, actually, this season), and add a cute hat (£9.99), ankle boots (£24.99), a fringed bag (£19.99) and some round sunnies (£14.99) for this sort of 90s indie inspired laidback style.

H&M spring outfitAt JOY we’re channeling a sort of 1980s vibe, in a very quirky beatnik way, with their brilliant print culottes (£35) and matching shirt (£39). This matchy-matchy trend shows no signs of going anywhere, so embrace it. Look like an extra from an 80s pop video in this look by just adding heavy black sunnies (£9), and some pumps (£33).

spring outfit joyAt BHS, inject a bot of Victoriana into your spring outfit with this delightful blouse (£24). Team with a suedette skirt (£30). Suede is huge this season, as we hold on to that 1970s vibe. A fringed shopper (£59) works with this look, adding a 70s touch to the Victoriana vibe. Snakeprint will be everywhere, indulge it a little here on these cute sandals (£26). Oh, and big 70s sunnies (£15)  finish this look.

spring outfit bhsFlorals are a big spring trend this year. This outfit at French Connection will see you out of winter and into the first throes of springtime. Just take off your tights when the sun shines! This fab dress (£95) is a modern take on a floral print, all fabulously abstract. Make it edgy with shoes (£88) with a bit of a chunky heel and some attitude, and a big old leather shopper (£110).

spring outfit french connectionDenim is big this season. We’ve already discussed this, and we’ll no doubt return to it time and time again in the next few months. Where better to find a denim-led spring outfit than GAP? This simple shirt dress (£44.95) is so good, we just can’t. For work, for weekends, for parties. Perfect. Go double denim with a simple jacket (£54.95) in a lighter wash. And then add a canvas bag (£16.95) in complementary navy, and some clogs (£54.95). We LOVE the clogs.

This J by jasper Conran dress (£75) has great cut-put detailing. Layer white on white with this Betty Jackson.Black jacket (£79). Accessorize in white with a tote bag (£37.50) from Principles by Ben De Lisi, sunnies (£16) from Floozie by FrostFrench, and cut out pumps from Mantaray (£18).
