Fix up, look sharp
With spring on the horizon, what your new season wardrobe really needs is a new dress (or three) to style out spring’s special occasions. We’ve rounded up the statement shapes as seen on the fashion week crowd.
WEAR THE RAINBOW
Goodbye grey days! Whether you wear one hue from head to toe or clash your colours, get ready to spin the colour wheel and salute your shades of choice. Bold, primary colours are key; the brighter the better. We’re predicting a craze for pillar-box red, as seen at Versace, Preen and countless others, as well as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 – ultra violet. Pair with space-age silver to channel this forward-thinking colour’s mood.
No longer just reserved for winter, checks are definitely having a moment this spring. Make like Camille Charrière and pair classic prints with neutral layers or go bold with colourful summer plaids teamed with statement accessories, as seen on Doina Ciobanu. Invest now – we’re predicting this trend is one that will stick around through spring, summer and beyond…
Another contender for spring’s ‘it’ print, stripes are still very much a thing this season. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal or pinstripes… stripes showed up every which way on our favourite street style stars, not to mention the catwalks. How to wear them? With confidence. Go for full-length candy stripes or mix and match solid stripes in bold hues to make a strong statement that will be perfect for this spring’s races.
It wouldn’t be spring without a bunch of florals. Embrace flower power from head to toe with a punchy floral-print maxi dress; choose bold and bright blooms over pastel patterns and flowing, body-skimming silhouettes. Team with trainers and denim for day or dress it up with this season’s must-have belt bag and heels for a more formal look that scores style points. That’s wedding season, sorted!
