Find out which styles have walked straight off the catwalks and on to the streets, with our round-up of the most wearable looks for spring
While every wardrobe needs a few plain tops, this season the coolest way to wear your tee is emblazoned with a logo, slogan or image. Pair with a patterned skirt for an easy route to mix-and-match impact, or layer under a blazer for a smart but stylish look.
Got a special occasion this summer? Then it’s time to reconsider your cocktail frock and instead try this season’s coolest take on dressing up: the colour-pop trouser suit. From canary yellow to bright blue, they’ve certainly been a hit with the fashion crowd. As well as being a showstopping look worn together, you can also throw on the jacket or trousers separately to create a whole range of outfits from your existing wardrobe.
This season, Seventies fashion is the epitome of cool. Opt for wide-legged trousers with chunky-heeled boots, worn with your logo T-shirt (see above) and a knotted scarf. The colour palette revolves around orange, burgundy, green and oh-so-much brown, ideally layered one on top of the other – but you could always dip a toe in with a pair of trousers or bag first.
SHADES OF BEIGE
Beige is all the rage right now. While once this colour was all about blending into the background, now it’s the way to grab attention, especially when worn head to toe. So how should you style it? The key is to mix different shades from the beige palette, from palest oyster to deep toffee. Give it a go, and you might just be surprised at how easy this trend is to wear.
ALL ABOUT DENIM
It’s pretty likely that your wardrobe already revolves heavily around denim, but this spring it’s not just jeans that are making the statement. Denim boiler suits, skirts, dresses and shirts are all hot on the high street and luckily for us, they’re infinitely wearable. They also provide the perfect base for eye-catching accessories, whether that’s a rainbow-bright pair of shoes or a directional bag.
Yellow is the colour of happiness, so we’ll all be grinning from ear to ear this season as sunny shades make a splash. After lighting up the catwalks from Oscar de la Renta to Carolina Herrera, yellow has become a standout street style look. Experiment first with yellow accessories, and try a softer tone such as ochre if bright marigold is too daunting.
