Driving home from work the other night i noticed that there was some daylight still on the horizon. I was instantaneously happy as I knew what that meant…Spring is well and truly on its way! This also means you have the task of building your Spring wardrobe backup in preparation for those warmer months (or weeks if you live here in the UK). This can prove to be much more of a difficult task than it sounds as the high street is a mixture of knitwear and coats along with bikinis and short shorts. We’ve took to the catwalks to help you get some inspiration. Don’t be put off by the eye watering price tags or designer labels as the high street will have very similar styles for a fraction of the price.
Looks like clashing is the new matching as far as this season goes. Stripes are going to be big and mismatching the print and colours is going to be one of the looks of the Spring/Summer. Think thick monochrome vertical stripes with horizontal pastel pinstripes. The options are endless. Don’t be afraid to hold back. If the catwalks are anything to go by then the more clashier the outfit the better. On the high street, it’s Zara that offer the best selection of the linear print – mix and match the individual pieces as you wish.
The blazer and jeans combo
A long blazer is your spring best friend, easy to throw on over every outfit – but it was casual cool that reigned on the runways, where colourful jackets were teamed with classic denim. Go for a straight leg jean for the most on-trend cut, and team with a simple tee and ankle boots.
The colour-pop power suit
Trouser suits are everywhere at the moment, whether it’s on the stars on the red carpet, or on the runway – but refreshing pastel shades are taking the look straight into Spring 2018. We saw lemon yellow at Hermès, lilac at Victoria Beckham and powder pink at Gabriela Hearst. The power suit really does hit the term ‘girl boss’ home.
