Spring is finally in sight, hoorah! We don’t know about you, but we’re already over the layers, bulky coats and jeans every day. Pass us our swishy skirts and dresses already! With the sunny, warm days on the way (there’s nothing wrong with being optimistic) we’re preparing our wardrobes and beginning to mentally curate the perfect spring outfits in line with the top trends that are set to hit the high street. You may have spotted some of these trickling into stores already, and you’d be right in thinking we may have already made a few purchases – preparation is key, after all.
Here are our favourite spring trends you need to know about for 2020!
That 70’s Show
The 70’s are set to return with a vengeance. Think big disco collars, chunky shoes, hippy vibes and lots of suede. If you’re not feeling quite ready to dig out your shearling lined gilet, give a nod to the trend in a mod floral minidress, or perhaps a tassel suede jacket (expect to see a lot of western themes this S/S).
A trend set to go big this summer is utilitarian-style safari inspired clothing. Think cargo pants, large pockets and utility belts. Leopard print is a popular sub-trend here, and our Savannah leopard print ballet flats will look just purrfect teamed with earthy tones, think burnt orange, khaki and cream.
Nature and fruit inspired prints are a summer classic, and they’re here to stay. Transport yourself to a faraway island and kick back in your palm-print dress with a coconut drink in one hand and fan in another. Or you could take your tropical prints to the streets of Manchester and London, whatever works.
Buttery Soft Leather
Leather, whether it’s vegan-friendly or the real thing, is set to be a winner this spring. From dresses to suits, we’ll see designers incorporating more of this material into their pieces. Just look to designers such as Nanushka, where their collection has been predominantly built on leather! How about a pair of our luxuriously soft leather ballet pumps to get the trend started?
Metallics were all over the catwalk! Spotted at JW Anderson, Coach and Toga, get ready to add a splash of luxe silver or gold to your look. If a head-to-toe metallic look isn’t for you (and quite frankly, we wouldn’t blame you) then accessorise instead. A muted metallic bag, or pair of gold ballet flats will look fabulous and give a nod to the trend without sporting a tin-man inspired OOTD.
