After what has felt like a long, cold winter, the sun is finally filtering through the clouds and the new stock is finally filtering into the stores. Any new season can feel a bit daunting so to ensure you hit the shops well informed, we thought we'd give you a little overview of what you can expect to find the next time you head into town.
First up, denim. In the topsy-turvy World of fashion, after years of being told that double denim is the ultimate faux pas, this season we're being actively encouraged to wear it head-to-toe. If that feels a bit scary then go with a shirt dress (Gucci) or jumpsuit (Stella McCartney). After years of the skinny jean reigning supreme, spring will see a more relaxed silhouette including flares, wide legs and cropped culottes (a personal favourite of this Lovett lady!)
On to colour - obviously denim has become such a neutral base that anything goes, but if you're after extra style points go with violet, marine blue or white. Moving nicely onto white - be prepared to wear this everywhere and for every occasion - stock up on the Vanish now!! Broderie Anglaise looks fresh and so pretty (Valentino) but there's also a variety of Victoriana reworked away frohttp://www.style.com/slideshows/fashion-shows/spring-2015-ready-to-wear/erdem/collection/8m its traditional black into white (Erdem, Cavalli, Nina Ricci) - could this be a sign of what's to come for Autumn..?
Moving onto print, some might say a floral is an obvious choice for Spring but expect to see over-sized blooms (Marni), and ultra-brights (Chanel and Michael Kors) alongside pretty ditsy prints (Prada and Vera Wang) and Asian styles (Gucci, Celine, Lanvin) to keep them looking fresh and new.
Finally the 70's, you won't be able to head into a shop without tripping over a platform heel or a flare this Spring. Layer up open-weave crochet styles now with your denim and pare it back to a tie dye maxi dress (Pucci) as the temperature rises.
We are so lucky in the UK to have such an amazing High Street that can create ranges influenced by the catwalks, in decent quality fabrics and fits and all at affordable prices which allows us to follow the trends and feel fashionable and fabulous whatever our budgets.
