The 10 spring summer fashion trends you NEED to know

Goodbye winter and hello spring - how happy we are to see you! 

The start of the new season means it's time to update your wardrobe with some fresh, exciting and lust-worthy fashion trends which will help put a spring in your step. Think 80's-inspired headbands which will help take your look up a notch or two and utility-style jumpsuits that are effortless to wear as they are fashionable. 

It's time to push your snuggly fur jacket to the side, say 'see you later' to your trusty tights and make way for spring's freshest trends. Trust us, they won't disappoint! 


1. The essential trench

A tailored trench coat is a gift that keeps on giving. It’ll help to weatherproof your look on rainy days and double up as a lightweight throw-on when the sun is shining. Team with jeans, a T-shirt and trainers for off-duty days, or wear it all done up and cinched in at the waist for sophisticated style.


2. Dress code 

Fashion’s love affair with the midi dress is still going strong, and this season’s update comes in the form of a shirt dress. Wear it buttoned up with heels or flats, or undone over a tee and your fave jeans to take you through spring and way beyond.

3. Underwear as outerwear

Once upon a time, slips were only ever worn beneath a skirt or dress. Fast forward to 2019 and slips are starting to see the light of day – and they’re perfect for taking your wardrobe from winter into spring. Pair a fitted top with this knee-grazing red number and slip on some dressed-down kicks for a casual-cool look.

4. All white 

Shoes can make or break an outfit, and white footwear is 2019’s hottest trend. Tick off style and practicality with a fresh pair of trainers, or update your going-out ‘shoedrobe’ with a pair of white mules with a heel. Both work wonders with wide-leg trousers, maxi dresses and jeans alike. The possibilities are endless! 

5. Powerful prints

This season, nothing screams ‘Hello spring!’ better than punchy prints and blooming gorgeous florals. The easiest way to get on board? Opt for a flower-patterned dress, or a blouse with a smaller, all-over ditsy print.

6. Go for gold

From chunky earrings to statement necklaces, gold is the metallic hue to sport this spring. Go big and bold, with ornate details, gems and pearls, and faux enamel in rich colours.

7. Retro Style 

A huge trend in the 1970s, broderie anglaise – a pretty, lace-like fabric – is staging a comeback and it’s safe to say we’re sold! Float through the changing seasons effortlessly in a frilly white blouse, lightweight jeans and boots. Team with a skirt and sandals in summer.

8. Dreamy denim 

Jeans are never out of style and now is the time to explore softer colours and the latest relaxed silhouettes. Make wide-leg jeans in worn-in blue or a cool button-down dress your new go-to.

9. HEads up 

Headbands are #trending and it’s easy to see why. From bold geo patterns and tropical prints to silky textures and knotted styles, these brilliant accessories ooze 1990s nostalgia and will up your hair game in an instant.

10. At your service

If there’s one trend to steal the show, it’s all things utility related. Think belted jumpsuits and boiler suits or tailored trousers and tops with jumbo pocket detailing – believe us when we say this look is suitable for any and every occasion. Need a casual daytime outfit? Team with flats and a biker jacket. Party to go to? Switch to heels and a smart blazer.
