THE OVERSIZED SHIRT zara. THE WOODEN BAG cult gaia. THE STRAIGHT LEG JEAN topshop.

Spring has officially begun meaning there are new trends to get excited about and new pieces to buy. It can seem a little overwhelming when you have so many options and every trend is the 'must-have' trend - what can a girl do?
THE TRENCH COAT river island. THE CASHMERE JUMPER h&m. THE WHITE TRAINER kurt geiger.

This is when your capsule wardrobe staples become super important and act as the backbone to your new purchases. High-quality pieces that you can mix and match with on-trend bits amd throw on without much worry.
THE WHITE TEE weekday. THE TORTOISE SUNGLASSES finlay & co. THE SLIP DRESS & other stories.

You will live and die in Topshop's straight leg jeans and Kurt Geiger x Michael Kor's white trainers as they'll be you're everyday basics. River Island's trench coat and Zara's oversized shirts will be your favourites too with both pieces given a nice design twist.
THE BLAZER zara. THE GOLD EARRINGS the outlier. THE JUMPSUIT mango.

And wardrobe staples are anything but boring! Cult Gaia's bamboo clutch and The Outlier's hammered gold hoops will make any outfit stand out. Finally, invest in a piece luxury with H&M's cashmere v-neck jumper or Finlay & Co's tortoise shell sunglasses

Spring and Summer is such an exciting season with the promise of delicate fabrics, lighter colour palates and warm memories to be made wearing these pieces. From the must-have prints to new season denim, these are the trends you'll be wearing this season.

Polka Dots



Loved by the likes of Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn, the polka dot print is timeless and continues to reappear on the runway. From A.W.A.K.E's bold, extra large dots to Valentino’s and Rodarte’s colourful and ditsy spots, there are so many stylish ways to add this print into your Spring/Summer wardrobe.


Safari


SS18's Safari trend is about combining practical pieces with relaxed, casual separates in a colour palette of khaki, straw and ecru. Taking inspiration from Derek Lam and Matthews Adams Dolan, wear a pocket shirt with oversized cuffs and finish the look off with a straw circle bag.

White Denim


The 'ride and die' blue denim has been replaced with white to create very summer-appropriate outfits. But far from being boring, this denim features contrast stitching like Dion Lee and abstract pebble & shell buttons as seen on the Rejina Pyo runway, as a way to give these pieces a new feel.


Pastels



Whether it's mint green, dusty yellow, baby pink, lilac or duck egg blue, designers have made pastel colours cool and fresh rather than cute and ageing. Pastel tones appeared in nearly every style from utility chic at Marta Jakubowski or soft tailoring at Milan Schon, there's no excuse to not be wearing the trend. 

Minimal


In a season full of print and colour, the minimal trend offers us another option. The epitome of 90s fashion, the more conscious designer and shopper understands the importance of buying investment pieces that can be worn with nearly anything like Ralph Lauren's bandeau jumpsuit. 


Checks



Is there a more appropriate print for Spring than the check? After the popularity of the Prince of Wales check in AW17, the gingham check was featured by many designers. The check came in a spectrum of colours with pastels at Loewe, bold reds at Hermes and dark palates at Fendi which means you can wear print whether the sun is shining or not.


Sportswear


For Spring/Summer this trend is a mixture of practical sportswear pieces with opulent luxurious separates. It may take a brave person to pull off the look a la Louis Vuitton so pick elements of these looks you like best and pair your best party or workwear with your favourite athletic wear.

To Treat or Be Treated?

Whatever the answer Valentine's Day is the perfect time to be spoilt with the little luxuries we would normally deny ourselves, whether we're buying it for ourselves or someone else is. These treats range from delicate gold jewellery and sumptuous candles to gorgeous loungewear and bold lipsticks.
