Spring is upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking about your new season wardrobe. As the weather heats up, it’s a really fun time of the year to experiment with your clothing without the worry of having to wrap up warm, so embrace the trends and express yourself!

Forget about the classic florals this Spring, because this year it’s all about stripes! Our colour of choice?  Most definitely fuchsia! And your wardrobe go-to essential? Anything with ruffles!

Read on to find out a bit more about the hottest SS17 trends that you should be embracing.

Draw the Line

This season it’s all about stripes and by this we mean in every colour, shape, size and form you could imagine! Seaside stripes are perfect for adding a laid back beachy vibe to your look, while block designs make a statement and traditional pinstripes keep you on the straight and narrow. No matter your style, there are endless ways to make this trend work for you!

This lightweight bardot blouse by Michael Kors marries the off-the-shoulder trend with classic stripes – a match made in heaven!

Pretty in Pink

This season you’ve got to think pink, because fuchsia is most definitely the hottest colour of the season and boy are we happy about it! The vibrant shade has been flooding the catwalk and high street alike, so it’s time for your wardrobe to follow suit. Whether you embrace the sizzling hue from head to toe, or incorporate flickers of fuchsia into your ensemble, the colour is guaranteed to instantly lift your look.

A knitted dress, like this one by Ruth Erotikritou, is just the answer to transitioning into the warmer seasons.

Frill Seeker

For the romantics among you, you’ll be happy to hear the ruffles trend remains huge this season. From neat accenting on classic designs, to flamboyant ruffled necklines, the trend is perfect for adding a feminine and playful touch to your ensemble. If frills aren’t your cup of tea, however, a more structured take on the trend, such as this chic pleated mini dress by Keepsake, will add a contemporary edge to your look.

Sporting Vibes

Are you the type of person who would rather put comfort ahead of trends? Well we’ve got some good news, because this season you can do both! From sports inspired designs, to mesh panelling and streamline cuts, the athleisure trend is remaining at the forefront of ladies fashion.

Be playful with your look and opt for something in a bold colour or with a fun slogan, to create a stand out look for those off duty occasions. The best part? Trainers are so much easier to walk in than heels!

Hemlines Askew

Straight hemlines are boring right? Vary it up this season with some skewed cuts, whether it be an asymmetric, dipped or cross-over hem. These tassel and pom-pom trimmed designs by Pitusa and Velvet are perfect for adding a fun spin on the classic black styles.
