Spring is just around the corner - and we are all looking forward to being able to take off some of our wintery layers - but what trends will we see through this summer - and how can we wear them?
The feminine touch is here in force - from puffed sleeves, either at the shoulder or all the way down the sleeve.
Should we experience the inevitable April showers, don't worry - trench coats remain a strong trend - but now seen with the additon of pleats and prints on fabrics.
Oversized, low- slung tailoring can be seen - but worn with heels gives it an elegant, contemporary look. Chose from either loose trousers or skirts - all worn low on the hips. As seen by Victoria Beckham and Rolan Mouret.
Prints have been a trend for the last few season, but this season they become large, and abstract and bold - think huge floral prints, clashing colours and oversized polka dots. Be bold - be bright! As seen by Marc Jacobs and Erdem.
Ruching of soft flowing fabrics brings a new level of femininity to summer dressing, previously seen at the neck - this season being prevalent across the torso. This technique can change a simple dress into a stunning, elevated item in your wardrobe - plus being ever so flattering!
