Spring/Summer 2018 Inspiration

I have been doing my SS18 Trends research, and think that now it is time for some new season wardrobe planning! It is never too early to start your wishlist! 

SS18 is shaping up to be a particularly gorgeous one as designers seem to have reacted to a rather dreary 2017 in the only way they know how…with colourful, uplifting joy-filled clothing that take us to another, happier world! Kaleidoscopes of colour, the prettiest of pastels, power 1980’s inspired dressing, sparkling sequins and fabulous fringing all feature this coming season. The weather may be gloomy… but at least we can dress ourselves happy!

Here are my favourite trends for SS18! I have also put together a Pinterest board for some Spring Summer inspiration, which you can visit by clicking HERE

Sequins

You might be thinking of putting away your sequin pieces, now that the festive season is over…but, from a glance at the S/S catwalks, sequins and sparkles and set to continue to be a big deal! Glitter prevailed in fashion weeks across the world, with Tom Ford, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Dior and Chanel all featuring them on the catwalks. Style yours for spring with jeans, simple knitwear or go all out and add your favourite heels for a perfect Saturday night look!

Pastels

Get ready to be spoilt for choice when it comes to gorgeous pastel tones this spring/summer. Whether pink, duke egg blue, lilac or lemon, expect to see an array of style’s prettiest shades! Though candy colours don’t always mean girly styling…this season designers like Victoria Beckham and Celine took the trend into tailoring for a sharper look! Try a pastel tone blazer with your favourite jeans…

Fringing

All things tasselled and fringed made a surprise comeback. But this isn’t the festival inspired looks we are used to, designers like Celine, Bottega Veneta and Loewe gave fringing a sophisticated update. Try a fringed dress with a blazer for an elegant look, or if you aren’t feeling brave enough to go all out, why not opt for some tasseled boots?

Bold colour

It might not come as much of a surprise that with summer come gorgeous bold colours! This summer in particular, looks set to be very bright indeed, if the catwalks and red carpets are anything to go by! From New York to Paris, to award shows, clothing has been awash with vibrant shades to suit every colouring!

Ruffles

Ruffles are set to add a girlish, feminine air to clothing this summer with Erdem, Valentino and plenty of others incorporating them into their shows! 

Floral Dress

I have saved my favourite for last! Summer wouldn’t be summer without a gorgeous sea of florals on pretty dresses, and this season won’t disappoint. From bold, bright blooms, to delicate prints, there will be plenty to choose from when it comes to finding the perfect summer dress! The joy of florals is that once you find the right print, they can be worn anywhere from work to a wedding!
