The year’s freshest (and most wearable) fashion trends

Lighten up (your coat and colour palette, that is)

After a long, dark winter, it’s time to embrace spring’s optimistic mood. Clothes-wise, this translates to a lighter, brighter palette – for example swapping your black or navy coat for beige or pastel shades. The relaxed shape of this double-breasted oatmeal coat is perfect for throwing on over spring outfits – check out Holly Willoughby in the pale green version if you need convincing. Trench coats are another spring favourite: choose between a powder-blue faux-leather trench, a classic buttoned beige trench or this sharp, modern coat from the Autograph range.

Bold shoulders are still big news

The rise of Zoom-worthy tops and blouses does not stop at oversized collars – the statement shoulder is a very welcome addition to the work-from-home uniform. Seen on the catwalks everywhere from Givenchy to Balmain, standout shoulders can range from extravagant origami numbers to a more wearable take on the trend, such as this pretty, puff-sleeved knit. Balance out showy shoulders with wide-leg or mom jeans, keeping the waist nipped in for a defined silhouette.

Stay supported underneath your knit with the best bras for bigger busts.

Stylish sweats – luxe lounging is here to stay

When even Prada is featuring hoodies in its spring/summer 2021 collection, you know that the loungewear trend – not to mention need – is going nowhere fast. Take your sweats into the new season with simple jersey pieces in cool, fresh shades, and add a hint of polish by layering over a shacket (whatever you think of the name, the shirt/jacket hybrid trend is here to stay).

Cosy up and read our guide to stylish loungewear.

Fun floral prints embrace colour and maximalism

Feelgood prints were a welcome addition to spring’s catwalks, ranging from zingy rainbow patterns to Versace’s bejewelled starfish motif. For florals, this translates to bright colours and a maximalist aesthetic, whether that’s huge, oversized blooms or an entire National Trust garden’s worth of micro-flowers, as in this kaleidoscopic long-sleeved floral-print dress. Believe us, it’s the best way to make getting dressed feel fun again.
