8 ON-TREND BUYS TO UP YOUR SPRING STYLE GAME
From star prints to sweetheart necklines, meet the spring 2017 fashion trends to fast-track your way to a catwalk-worthy wardrobe…
NEW SEASON, NEW LOOK
Now that the new season has finally shown up, it’s time to swot up on – and shop – the spring/summer 2017 trends that will ramp up your style stock. Luckily, our spring collection ticks off all the biggies, from hot pink (worn head-to-toe if you’re really brave) to star prints and two sexy new necklines. So read on, add to your wardrobe, and prepare to cause widespread outfit envy…
1. THE TRENCH REFRESH
The classic trench is the linchpin in every stylish woman’s outerwear arsenal, and makes the perfect transitional cover-up. Stella McCartney re-worked the staple trench for spring in fluid tan fabric, and our luxe suedette style is the perfect way to channel the trend. Seriously – it’s so butter-soft you won’t believe it’s not real suede.
2. THE TAILORED JUMPSUIT
If you thought jumpsuits belonged firmly in the ‘going out-out’ section of your wardrobe, it’s time to think again. The beauty of this outfit-in-one lies in its ability to take you from day-to-night, especially now it’s been given a tailored update for the new season. Take inspiration from the Mulberry catwalk and add glamour to our cropped one-piece with drop earrings and glossy heels.
3. ZIGGY STARDUST
Star prints are firmly back on the fashion map thanks to Balenciaga’s constellation-covered ensemble. For a more real-life friendly take on the trend, look no further than our sheer star print shirt. Sex it up for evening by wearing over just a bra, then add a spaghetti strap cami when you need a little extra coverage. Metallic accessories will up the celestial vibe.
4. ONE SHOULDER REDUX
Fashion’s obsession with exposed shoulders is here to stay, and, along with the Bardot, the one-shoulder is another clavicle-flashing top you need in your separates repertoire this season. Yep, the edgy asymmetric neckline is back with a bang thanks to Saint Laurent, and will breathe a new lease of life into your go-to skinny jeans. Wear our button trim top with black denim and fierce courts for an effortless look that’s sexy as hell.
5. COCKTAIL HOUR
Got floral fatigue or – dare we say it - slightly over stripes? Well, your print prayers have been answered, as there’s a new spring pattern to know. Take your style cue from Dolce & Gabbana and update your look with a quirky cocktail print. Our statement black shirt will work for the office and after dark. Warning: may induce Pina Colada cravings.
6. SEXED-UP SWEETHEART
Along with shoulders, the décolletage is back in style this season thanks to another neckline resurgence - the sweetheart. This one’s down to Saint Laurent too, and is the easiest way to elevate your go-to jeans, skirts, and trousers. Made from a super-soft jersey fabric, our sweetheart top is a versatile staple you’ll wear day and night. Dress it up for evening by tucking into glam skirts, or work a high-low Saint Laurent-inspired look by pairing with boyfriend jeans and sexy heels.
7. THINK PINK
It’s time to cast aside the Barbie associations and embrace pink. From Balenciaga to Valentino, the spring/summer catwalks were awash with shades of pink, with vibrant fuchsia leading the pack. At Trussardi, models worked the hue head-to-toe, but one hit of pink is more than enough to score new season style points. Toughen up our bright pink shirt by pairing with black separates, or try it with washed-out denim.
8. PYTHON PRINT
Don’t tell leopard, but this season we’re having an affair with chic snake. Slinky and sexy, python prints stormed the Balmain catwalk – look out for them on a Kardashian soon – and lend any look an exotic new season update. Channel Balmain with our luxe red cropped trousers – just add a simple black top to let the statement print stand out.
