This season sees an ode to the naughties with the return of raw denim and a focus on straight lines, tailoring and stiff collars, thanks to the likes of Levi’s and Patrizia Pepe spring SS18 shows. Double up your denim with simple shirts and panelled jackets, or opt for all-in-ones like pinafores and dungarees teamed with staple white essentials. It is time to buy those designer jeans.
INTO THE WILD
Layer it up with lightweight fabrics and neutral tones as this spring we’re inspired by all things safari. Crisp cut trousers and capris, as well as high-waisted shorts, are set to be your season go-to for more casual dressing. Look for clean-cut pieces in earthy hues and steer clear of overly fussy details. Add elegant jewellery and statement heels to finish your look.
BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL
Unleash your inner colour junkie with an injection of your favourite crayon hues. This season it’s all about the pillar box red, canary yellow and cobalt blue seen splashed across the catwalks from New York to Paris. It’s time to get playful with your dressing. Think colour blocked dresses, statement accessories and powerful outerwear. When it comes to handbags, try a contrasting colour designer tote or a mini camera bag to finish your look.
Thanks to the influence of top designers including Carolina Herrera and Kenzo, bold stripe patterns in contrasting and complementary tones have arrived ready to go for the new season. Neutral, warm greys and whites are used as a base with accents of vibrant blues, mints, reds and purples. From workwear to casual wear stripes are a versatile and easy-to-wear trend. Pick oversized tops to wear with your favourite jeans, or team wide-striped trousers with a crisp shirt for a more formal take on this season’s move away from breton.
