8 spring trends I’m all about

29th September, 2021

Spring is here and with it comes some fun trends to embrace this season. I’m not usually one to jump aboard every single trend I see but when I love a trend I totally commit. I like to think of trend pieces as the icing on the cake, something that I can weave into my usual outfit repertoire to dress it up and having followed closely what we’re expecting this spring, these are some of my favourites…

The mini is making a comeback!

The mini mini

As someone who is quite petite I particularly love one thing about this trend and that’s the fact that a shorter hemline has an elongating effect. A mini looks great worn with heels or flats but one thing I make sure whenever I wear something shorter at the bottom is that I tend to go for something a bit more conservative at the top to strike a balance.

Floral prints

What would spring be without a great floral print? I love injecting florals into my spring outfit rotation and it’s great for adding a feminine touch to a look. I particularly gravitate towards floral dresses for a simple look that feels instantly polished.

Wide leg pants are a go-to of mine

Summer trench

Transseasonal weather is tricky to navigate what with cold weather one minute and balmy days the next. One way around this is a lightweight trench. It’s great for popping on over jeans and a tee or a blouse and pants and instantly dresses up an outfit too.

Wide leg pants

If you’ve yet to embrace wide leg pants I highly recommend you do. They’re so unbelievably comfortable and just look so effortlessly put together. I’ve worn them with sweaters over winter and even now while the weather is still unpredictable, but I intend to pair them with t-shirts or tanks when the weather officially warms up.

Pastels are made for spring

Pastels

There’s no better colour palette for spring than pastels and I’m definitely going to be embracing it in its various iterations. Whether it’s a lightweight dress or a gorgeous trouser, there’s definitely plenty to love when it comes to a pastel.

Oversized shirts

I’m really into oversized shirts at the moment either as a standalone piece or a layering garment. They look effortless and cool worn with shorts heading into summer, but they can also be great worn over a swimsuit or paired with denim.

Embracing bold shoulder detail

Bold shoulders

Love the statement making effect of a bold shoulder. I’m all about a top with a striking detail whether it’s a shirt with shoulder pads or a cap sleeve such as the jumpsuit above.

Tie dye

I’m really into tie dye! It’s a fun print and such a playful touch to an outfit. One of my current fave outfits is a tie dye t-shirt with denim, as it adds a great pop of colour and adds a twist to a workhorse of my wardrobe.

A new season is a great time to hit refresh on your wardrobe but with the range of trends hitting the stores now it can be hard to pinpoint just which pieces your wardrobe will need throughout the next few months. If you’re looking for the top trends for spring look no further than these four pieces…

Slip dress

The ’90s trend has really hit with everything from chokers to floral dresses making their way into our wardrobes. However if there’s one piece that you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of use out of it’s a great slip dress. A simple black number can easily be worn on its own or teamed with a t-shirt for the ultimate in ’90s combinations. Throw on a bomber, denim or leather jacket over it and you can easily dress it up or down according to the occasion. When teamed with a blazer (to really be on trend try a double breasted cut) it instantly looks polished. It’s a piece that will easily be on high rotation.

Ruffles

This time around ruffles are bolder and more structured and are making their way into everything from dresses to tops and skirts so you’re guaranteed to spot the trend everywhere. When it comes to wearing ruffles be sure to keep the rest of your outfit pared back to allow it to be the focal point of your look – it’s quite dramatic so you don’t want it to overwhelm.

Wide leg pants

Cropped wide leg pants are a fresh addition to your wardrobe for summer. With an alluring flash of ankle it can be teamed with everything from sandals, to statement heels and sneakers. The best bit is its both office and weekend appropriate so you’ll be guaranteed to get plenty of wear out of it. A navy pair is a great option to have in your wardrobe as it’s so versatile but don’t be afraid to experiment with a printed pair for a fun look.

Off the shoulder

Ah the off the shoulder trend. It’s certainly not showing signs of going away anytime soon. Whether you dabble in the trend with a top or dress, the style will certainly be everywhere this season. It’s a piece that can easily be dressed up or down and looks particularly chic in a crisp white. There are plenty of great prints and colours available in store now so you’re sure to find one to suit your style.
