"Floral's For Spring. Groundbreaking!!" : Spring Summer Trends

"Floral's For Spring. Groundbreaking!!" : Spring Summer Trends

Spring is my favorite season of the year, that moment when those dreary wintery nights start to fade and the excitement of Spring and then Summer feels so very real! This go for Spring clothes as much as the feeling of the new season. This year I have been so inspired looking at all the catwalk trends coming through, and I wanted to share my favorite trends that I will DEFINITELY be buying into!

First up I couldn't do a Spring post without mentioning florals, the irony with florals and Spring never gets old! I always rememeber that quote from The Devil Wears Prada "Florals, for Spring, Groundbreaking!" But Spring does always bring in a floral trend of some sort and this season it is "Vintage Florals" that we are seeing so much of. Much like my dress, that Chinese inspired print that looks like it's taken (and probably was) from a vintage kimono.

Then Suiting, I love great tailoring! Suit's have been popping up everywhere from high end to high street you can find one that works for you. Most importantly find one that fits you amazingly! For me I find it the hardest to find occasions to wear it but I have been making efforts to step outfit my comfort zone and try a shorts suit in the daytime with trainers and I have been loving it!

Pastels are another one that feels so Spring/Summer but they are really huge this year. Everything in those ice cream colored tones baby pink, pale blue, mint green, cream. All these soft shades are everywhere and it's one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your closet. You could just add a cute t-shirt in a color you like and pair it with blue jeans and bomb you are bang on trend!

Denim everything has been creeping in for a while now and it's really coming this summer. But denim overalls, dresses, skirt, matching two pieces - you name it and there will be a denim version! Again, a really easy, not scary trend to add into your existing closet!

The coat of the season is the Trench! But, the famous Burberry trench is not the only one to be had! Everyone from high end to high street is working a trench into their collection, so you will be able to find one that works for you! There is also a lot of incorporating trenches as an entire outfit, so wearing one as a dress!

Then for accessories! The bag I cannot wait to get my hands on is a "belt bag" or a "bum bag". Gucci really made an incredible come back last year with belts and bags. And this year you will definitely want to get your hands on the belt bag!

For shoes it's all about sneakers, which I am soooo happy about! It's alway amazing when something really cute and practical is in!
