We might still be braving the chilly weather in our best winter gear but spring is not far away and as the weather starts warming up we will be looking forward to the clothing trends that have already been gracing the catwalks for some time now. As the saying goes, there is no rest for the wicked (especially when you want to look hot hot hot) so it is never too early to start planning your spring and summer wardrobe. Here are the latest patterns, key pieces and popular themes that you can consider as staple pieces for your own new collection.
Teeny Tiny Shorts
Short shorts will be all the rage so have the confidence to wear them! For day-wear; PU paper bag, self waist shorts add a touch of glamour worn with bare legs or lacy tights. Simply add heels and a lacey pussy-bow blouse and you are all set for a killer night out on the town!
The fashion world is going literally dotty for polka dots and this classic print has now moved with the times! This pattern was traditionally worn in navy blue and white but is now embracing other colours such as baby pink and blue, nude, white and the ubiquitous black. From bodycon to puff sleeve wholesale dresses, Bardot style tops and long-sleeved blouses – there is a range of clothing to suit everyone. It has even been combined with sheer and ruffle detailing meaning you can wear this fashion all hours of the day and not just 9-5 or for afternoon tea!
This bright shade truly adds a pop of colour even on those rainy summer days and other brights such as racy red have also made a strong appearance. You can be a tangerine dream in a more muted shade with a sexy sheer lace bodysuit worn under a blazer to give a tantalizing hint of what you are wearing underneath or why not indulge in a cosy red bomber jacket for those cooler days or evenings?
Blue is most definitely ‘in’ this year, and the shades on trend for 2020 are a mixture of punchy aqua and turquoise. Blue is the colour you will want to be seen in especially in organza, mesh and satin materials and it’s not just dresses and tops available to buy. A stunning pair of ankle tie-up hem, tapered trousers are a great choice too.
Going on Safari
Don’t worry – you don’t actually need to go on holiday to wear this utility fashion style, although you may want to pack a few pieces in your suitcase if you do! A contrast button playsuit, sleeveless shirt or mini dress will do nicely wherever you chose to wear them and the timeless leopard print is making a strong revival too.
Turning Back the Clock
Key pieces on the designer catwalks have gone retro and designers have taken their inspiration from the ’60s and ’70s with a bohemian twist on their collections. Chiffon and Broderie Anglaise offer a girly feel – think daisies in your hair, or why not try on a floral playsuit running riot in big flowers? There is also space in your wardrobe for a tie-dye dress for a truly free-spirited feel to fashion and life in general.
A White Wash
“Tonal dressing” from head to toe is a big contender for 2020 and looks effortlessly chic however you wear it. From dresses, tops and trousers finished off by white flats or heels – white truly is the new black!
