Think peach, lemon sherbet, tea rose, lilac and aqua this springtime for a fresh on-trend look. Clash pastel colours together, like ‘The Help’ actress Ahna O’Reilly does below with her gorgeous yellow underlay and hem with those fabulous lilac Casadei suede wedge heels. For a high-street flash of colour, look no further than Gap this Spring – they have a fantastic array of colour-popping pastels for you to get your fashion fix. These relaxed ‘boyfriend shorts’ strike the ideal balance between gorgeously girly and summer cool.
Trend Alert! Flatforms
These new shoes are bound to be a massive hit this Spring/Summer, with big names such as Derek Lam, Prada and Chanel getting behind the new design. So what exactly are these ‘flatforms’? Much like the name suggests they are flat-platforms – perfect for long walks on the beach, where you want to have the height without the killer heel. These look great with a pair of skinny jeans or a floaty skirt. Total wardrobe must-have for the spring season
Suited and Booted
Menswear as the new Womenswear ? It’s going to be a big hit in 2012, with designers such as Stella McCartney getting behind the classic suit for their Spring Collections. But workwear does not have to be boring, Alexa Chung does an amazing job of glamorizing this grey suit with some classic stilettos. The jacquard panel on the trousers adds some femininity to the outfit. Worn with a classic white shirt, this simple outfit is ideal for looking fantastic in the office, or for a more exciting occasion could be dressed up with silks and heels.
Out of this World!
This spring trend has real universal appeal! Perfect for summery nights out under the stars, galaxy print has taken off. Jessie J is looking out of this world in this printed cat suit. This trend was ignited by the legendary Christopher Kane, and has since become a must-have look amongst celebrities and fashionistas alike. Whilst some might not dare-to-bare all in such a revealing cat suit, designers Rag & Bone offer an amazing pair of jeans (£150 @ ASOS) that are sure to generate the same level of astronomical interest! Team it with some high white ‘space’ boots or a metallic belt for an on-trend outfit.
Whoever would have thought that tires and exhaust pipes would make for high end fashion? Well, Prada’s Spring/ Summer collection is here to prove all skeptics wrong. These cute 50s style pastel prints are the perfect choice for a picnic, or even a roadtrip further afield. From jackets to amazing clutch bags (excuse the pun) the collection is a must-have for all label-lovers. But don’t despair if your purse strings are a little tight this month, as we’ve spotted the absolute bargain highstreet copy in Primark! For a fraction of the price you can be in the fashion fast lane – genius.
