The trendy heralds of spring

A few drops of rain followed by a little sunshine predict the incoming spring and all the perks it brings with it. Light dresses and shorter pants are no longer covered by puffy coats and ski jackets. In the season of cardigans and blazers, fashion designers have some lovely proposals for our spring wardrobe. While many high end runway displays are difficult to wear in your daily life, these are some of the most wearable and easiest to accessorize trends – you can finally dress like Victoria Beckham in London Harrods and even the exclusivist Jason Wu has an offer that is difficult to refuse.

Floral lacy pastels

As always, spring is the season that literally screams pastels. Whether it’s a Rebecca Taylor blouse, a Jason Wu blazer, Alice + Olivia skirt or the notorious flowery pastel dress, there’s a shape and shade out there for everyone. From mint green and baby blue to blush pink, lavender and soft orange tones, designers have it all.


Lingerie-like slip dresses

Boudoir wear was always a source of inspiration for fashion designers and this year is no different. Their favourite theme gets a bit dressy, with simple nude dresses and noodle straps in precious fabrics. The look often shares a few other season-favourites in sheer fabrics and delicate fringes. You can wear it with a warm sweater or cardigan in a sunny spring day or add some sparkly jewellery and you’re ready for a night out with the girls.

A quirky spin on white shirts

The white shirt was the base of any office look and needed a few accessories to get it noticed. This season it turned into a star of the runway, a noteworthy accessory in itself. Asymmetric cuts and stitches, geometric patterns and sheer panels turn the simple white shirt into a statement piece. You can wear it to work but if there’s too much transparency maybe save it for a casual brunch date.

The boxy tops are back and if you have the right figure for them you’ll be delighted to see the variety of styles and patterns it comes in: pastel simplicity at Calvin Klein, a mash of geometric and floral prints at Preen or embellished necklines at Mulberry. Whichever you prefer, you’ll be the proud owner of a versatile and unpretentious jacket that is elegant enough to be worn at a business meeting but casual enough for a walk in the park.

Pastel biker jackets

Finally a sporty trend for the tomboy who wants to look feminine at the same time. We all have a black leather biker jacket somewhere in our closet that we never know what to accessorize with and now the solution is within our reach. Blue, purple or neon pink – there’s a solution for everyone, so you can enjoy those wonderful pastels in a warm and expressive jacket. Wear it on a shopping spree or a bike ride around town.

Wide-length pants

Elegance and comfort is all you want from a spring outfit. Put away those skinny jeans and enjoy the sunshine and revived nature in a pair of wide-length trousers, for a casual yet refined look. It’s time to get used to fashion that is comfortable and versatile! Any pair in neutral shades will look great at the office, at the cinema or even in a supermarket with your shopping list in hand.

Voluminous tea-length skirts

There was a time when we all wanted to be princesses but those puffy long dresses got more and more difficult to pull off as we grew up. Don’t worry, tea-length skirts came to the rescue, bringing volume back in trend. The voluminous shape is quite complimentary to your figure and the lively prints and colours will match your spring wardrobe perfectly. Appliqué flowers, dots and delicate embroidery are great for a special occasion but a simple pastel or neutral shade is much more practical. In the end, whatever you choose to wear, make this a spring to remember!
