As the years have past it’s been made clear that us ladies are able to wear pretty much whatever we want when it comes to our “going out” outfits. Wearing a fitted dress or 6 inch heels is no longer the dress code, and this is music to my ears. This doesn’t mean you should just throw on your coffee stained sweatshirt and leggings with holes in to go out for dinner. What i tend to do is wear something that I am comfortable in, then add some things to lift the outfit to the next level. Think statement jewellery or an amazing handbag.
From pleated tartan skirts to western plaids to song of praise inspired ginghams dresses, there are so many variations of check prints, that all have their own individual identity. Every runway, at every fashion event across the globe, was jam packed with many different check prints and we fell in love all over again. Bug hitting designers such as Gucci, Alexander McQueen and of course…Burberry (the Queen of check prints).
With spring just hitting us and light nights are coming (and my 1 year olds routine being thrown out the window with the clocks going forward) we’re very much in the part of the year when the new collections will be released. With easter come up on the rail, Spring is officially here. This means it’s time to ditch the knitwear and the warmer clothing and bare those midriffs and ankles.
Stripe prints are a classic wardrobe staple that a lot of ladies will wear throughout the year, regardless, of the weather outside. It seems that this Spring, designers are looking to elevate the humble stripe print to the next level. Pops of colour have been thrust into the stripe print limelight. Often, stripe prints are normally produced in navy/white & black/white so having an injection of colour throw into the mix is a refreshing change.
Spring is finally on it’s way, and I can’t wait it! It’s literally all I’ve been talking about to my partner and my friends. I went shopping and noticed the trends of Spring are starting to make their way onto the high street. Spring fashion will offer up a whole new selection of trends and styles and we are so excited about it.
