March has sprung bringing the promise of brighter, sunnier days ahead. It will soon be time to embrace the changing seasons, adopt a lighter weight wardrobe and relegate those warm knits to winter hibernation. With that in mind, I thought it would be useful to post a run-down of the key trends that are doing the rounds this spring.
In The Pink
Where better to start then with this spring’s hottest colour. Back in September, LFW Spring/Summer 2014 was awash with shades of pink covering the full spectrum from bubblegum pastels to bright fuchsia. There were no hard and fast rules so you have free rein to pick your hue and rock it however you desire. Here are a few of the ways I’ll be wearing pink.
This final look is my favourite because it combines two trends in one, embellishment and pink. Who doesn’t like to kill two birds with one stone, eh?
Lace It Up
For some people, lace is synonymous with conjuring up images of racy lingerie. However, used in a slightly more conservative way, lace was all the rage on the SS14 catwalk. Bolder and more liberal use of lace meant the usual decorative detailing, previously favoured on the catwalk, was replaced by head to toe ensembles such as lace dresses and lace pencil skirts.
The look I’ve chosen here is quite vintage inspired, almost Downton Abbey-esque.
I am a big fan of sprucing up a hairdo with a flower. Intricate braids embellished with small delicate flowers are very popular at the moment. Here I’ve tried to keep the look whimsical but with a modern touch to avoid looking too hippified. I think I like the tonal grey flower most.
This is a trend that rears its pretty head nearly every spring. Pastels done the right way are fresh, girly and sugary sweet. I’ve combined different textures in complementing lilac shades to make the look a bit edgier here.
Never be too shy to verbalise how you feel. Say it loud and proud with a slogan tee or cap. Not sure why I’ve gone with a ‘Dude’ cap here, seeing as I’m female, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
So there you have it – the key trends of spring as modelled by my furry self. I hope my spring lookbook inspires you to inject a bit of spring lovin’ into your life and wardrobe.
