5 Spring Trends to Wear Now
I have a love / hate relationship with trends. While I’ve always had a great interest in trends and understanding how I can make my outfit more on trend, I’ve never been one to dress head to toe in a trend. I prefer instead to choose the most wearable trends that I can feel confident won’t be ‘one hit wonders’ that I wouldn’t be seen dead in the following season. I tend to opt for more classic pieces, and the odd trend piece, often an accessory or outerwear piece that makes my whole look ‘on trend’ without disregarding my signature style.
As it’s currently London Fashion Week, I thought it would be great to discuss some of my favourite emerging trends for spring, and how we can wear them now. The first of which I’ve been loving for the past month or so, and it’s the check print. Now I know that check print trousers were all the rage in Autumn, but honestly, they didn’t suit me. They looked too quirky for my classic and feminine style, but now that the check print has become more elevated to classic styles, I’ve been experimenting with the print in my outerwear. This jacket from Reiss is an absolute favourite – it’s a statement piece that instantly lifts what could otherwise be a plain outfit, and instantly ticks off one of Spring’s key trends.

Another trend that I’m excited about is transparency – this season we are seeing see-through bags, barely there whispy dresses (as seen on the catwalks at Helmut Lang, Simone Rocha etc) and sheer plastic trench coats from Chanel as well as clear bags from the likes of Valentino, Aspinal and Chanel too. Opacity is certainly no longer a requirement for clothing or accessories this Spring, and the high street has already got a selection of sheer or transparent options for us. Shop my favourites below!
There are a couple of colours which will be huge this Spring, of course we will see plenty of pretty pastel shades, but the unexpected colour which popped up on Spring 2018 catwalks time and time again was Mustard Yellow. The shade appeared to be surprisingly versatile as it was spotted on catwalks of designers such as Isabel Marant and Moschino, and the high street has began adopting it too. Pair with your favourite neutrals, such as these leather leggings from Reiss to keep the look classic and chic.

As much as it pains be to say farewell to millennial pink, this Spring, it’s all about washes of lilac. Undoubtedly amongst a wash of pastels, the lavender hue stood out the most during the trend presentations, it’s modern and has a sophisticated feel, and if it’s good enough for Victoria Beckhams catwalk collection which oozed feminine luxury, then it’s good enough for me!
