The spring trend report
The five trends we’re totally obsessed with right now
It might’ve been raining buckets all weekend but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look forward to warmer climes. How? By taking a scroll through our spring trend report. It’ll put you in the mood, promise.
Print on print
If stripes, spots and leopard are all your bag, you’ll love this: print is big for 2018. And the look is all about taking it to the max. Just take this outfit from Tu above. The heart print blouse and micro print trousers are statement staples in themselves but wear them together and what’ve you got? A bold look that has spring written all over it.
Take your footwear to new lows with a pair of embellished sneakers. These navy ones – from Tu’s Premium range – features a scattering of pearls across the top that will make your everyday jeans feel a little bit extra-special. But try them with sharp tailoring to add a bit of comfort to the 9-5. We’ll leave the bashed-up old commute trainers at home…
Red, red and even more red
Right now, it’s all about red. We’re talking bold, bright, in-your-face scarlet. For a standout look, try working the shade all the way from head to toe – a razor-sharp power suit is a good place to start. Or work a subtler vibe with our oversized cardi, which looks nice with this floaty printed midi, aka your new summer hero.
Nothing beats the feeling of finally being able to shed the heavy winter coat. But it’s not the right time to bare all just yet. That’s why a chunky knit will be your best friend when it’s in-between-weathers. Think heavy fisherman knits teamed with polished leather. Thick roll necks worn over fine silk. Or this tangerine coatigan: it’s the ideal throw-on piece. Wear with a floral blouse and dark indigo skinnies for effortless weekend style.
Maxed out embroidery
Embroidery has become a fashion perennial over the past couple of years. And that’s not about to change. From flowers to badges, the more embroidery, the better. This cross-stitch shirt is ideal if you want to dip your toe in the trend. Pair with a denim pencil skirt and block heel ankle boots for a sleek off-duty outfit.
