Spring/Summer 2018….READY!

Spring/Summer 2018 is all going to be about colour! Bright, bold and beautiful. The catwalk shows of the world were awash with vibrancy. Whether it be pastels or neons don’t be afraid to experiment this season.

It seems 80’s fashion is here to stay as powersuits, oversized ruffles and shoulder pads are going to be very on trend. Don’t be afraid to channel your inner 80’s rock chick and wear some PVC. skirts, trousers and even tops are going to be making an appearance on the high street, along with plastic and rubber styles.

The ath-leisure movement seems to be dying down which will be music to the girls who like to dress up a bit more. There will be sequins, lace and frills galore to feed your addiction of glamming up.

If your more of a minimalist or tomboy then prepare to get excited as trouser suits and flat footwear are going to be huge!

The Decade: The 80’s

I touched on this earlier in the blog but it needs to be mentioned again as it was so prominent throughout the Spring/Summer fashion weeks. 80’s fashion was separated into two distinct looks…all out, glam, disco queen who would be wearing PVC vinyl dresses, nipped at the waist, with huge, oversized ruffles. There is no such thing as overkill when attempting to recreate this look. The second look is the casual approach. Think slogan crop tops with high waisted mom jeans and ankle boots or sneakers. Whichever look it is you decide to go for you will be bang on trend.

Back to Basics

There are some pieces in the fashion world that absolute wardrobe essentials. These styles are timeless and can be the finishing touches on many different outfit. They are an investment so don’t be afraid to splash the cash. Here are the more classic items that cropped up the most…

Trench Coats

From the classic camel coloured trench coat to a contemporary, deconstructed trench coat, there was something for everyone on the catwalks this season. This is a style that can be worn over and over again so it is well worth the investment

Trouser Suits

If you are going to only buy one statement piece of clothing this season then lean towards purchasing a power trouser suit. First and foremost they won’t date and secondly there are a 1001 different options to choose from. Whether you want to make a statement in bold colour (We recommend lavender) or you want to go for a more neutral approach you won’t be disappointed as this look can be revisited year after year.

Pencil Skirt

should the past few years of leggings and track pants have destroyed your feminine fashion soul, rejoice in the pencil-skirt comeback. This time around they are longer-lined and therefore more flattering. They will replace your full-skirted midis for the time-being but are always worth keeping for the future.
