How To Style Spring’s Key Trends Right Now
I literally count down the days until I can start talking about Spring fashion here on my blog and YouTube channel, in fact it was only 6 days into 2019 that I shared my ‘Top 10 Trends for 2019‘ video on YouTube and began chatting away about the trends I was looking forward to wearing as soon as the temperatures rise.
Well, we are still waiting for the chill to escape the air, but as the rainy miserable days lead into early signs of Spring sunshine, I think it’s an acceptable time to start injecting some of Spring’s key trends into our wardrobes now. Whether it’s a colour, a silhouette or a pattern, there’s no reason why we should wait any longer!
- 1. New Tailoring.
2. Bows & Ruffles
A trend that is a whole lot more feminine, and one which I’m extremely excited about is bows. Without the prissy connotations, we saw bows in sorbet shades at Erdem and Emilia Wickstead, where London Fashion Week catwalks saw them adorning backs of dresses, or finishing off a polished ponytail. Ruffles dominated the texture charts last summer, and will continue to rise in the fashion stakes this spring, so if you’re bored of smooth shapes and languid silhouettes, you’ll be able to escape to a childlike playfulness wit this seasons cascade of frills and ruffles.
My last blog post was all about ‘How To Wear Beige and NOT look Boring’ and there was a reason for it; the colour of the season will be beige. Call it what you like; oatmeal, stone, mocha, but these neutral tones were seen at Max Mara, Balmain and Burberry, and it’s sleek to be head to tow. A beige classic coat like this one is the best place to start. A timeless silhouette, it’s worth the investment, because let’s face it, when is beige not on trend?!
4. Pressed Rose
When it comes to colours, it’s no surprise that the millennial pink obsession of past years has matured into a softer, more subtle and wearable deep pink shade, which Pantone are calling ‘Pressed Rose’. A more grown up shade for us pink lovers to enjoy, the blushing shade provokes romantic and feminine touches to your outfit, without being OTT girly. Being a pink obsessive, I paired a lighter pink jumper with my tailored rose shade trousers, a look which is feminine and smart all in one go.
5. Metallic Boots
A trend which sounds so unwearable, yet actually isn’t is metallic boots. I found this affordable pair on amazon, not quite ready to invest in a more expensive pair until I figured out if the trend could work for my wardrobe. Opting for a versatile almost pewter shade, this colour can be made to work with plenty of outfit scenarios, whether it’s adding some fun and sparkle to a smart daytime look, or completing a full on sparking evening outfit!
