Our Guide to the Top Spring Trends

I think we have had our fill of Autumn Winter, and even Christmas to some extent. So it's time to start considering a whole new season; and what a fun one it will be. It's colourful, bright, and sees the return of a few of our favourite trends. So get ready, spring is about to start!

  • Denim

Not really a trend is it? But, it's taking the nod from the success of the Seventies revival we saw last season. Denim is morphed into a softer texture, and expect less structure in denim mini dresses and shirts especially!

The most loved skirt length is back, but so is the cropped and shorter trouser. If you bought a pair of culottes last year, then I hope you still have them. You'll be styling these with some flat slip-on runners for casual wear, and even some sandals for the office.

3. Floral (surprise, surprise)


Well you can't have spring without flowers can you? The floral print is very pretty for this season; it focuses on smaller prints which I believe are a lot more practical to wear. Floral maxi dresses with a bohemian theme will be all you will want for your summer holidays.

  • Flat time

Shoes get sensible and I couldn't be happier about it. Victoria Beckham champions the flat mule style shoe, which will make a nice refreshing shoe choice to wear to work (with those cropped trousers I mentioned above).

  • Back to basics

There is always one capsule wardrobe item that dominates each season, and for 2016 it's the white shirt. Long, short, cuffs, no collar, you name it, there are hundreds of styles and combinations, all of which are right on trend. Simple or super-glam, anything goes.

5. Suede (yep, still here)

H&M, €129.99 H&M, €129.99

That one texture that is hanging on from last season, suede is back. If you happened to get yourself a suede button down mini skirt, short jacket or even a shirt, you can reinvent them for spring. Swap out winter knits for floral blouses to give it a 2016 update.
