With the party season just around the corner, it might be time to start thinking about
what you are going to wear this silly season. Whether you like to glam it up with
shimmery sparkly dresses, or prefer a more casual style, there is plenty on offer to
make sure you look great at all your end-of-year festivities. Although the traditional
little black dress is still around, why not branch out, and try something a little more
adventurous this year?
For more formal parties there are plenty of great maxi dresses around at the moment.
Maxi dresses can work well with flats for a laid back beachy look, or dressed up for a
more classy and sophisticated look. Take advantage of the different prints and bright
colours on offer this summer, and really make a statement. From animal prints to
abstracts, there’s a lot to choose from. No matter what your body type, chances are
there is a maxi dress to suit your frame. Empire line dresses are great for the more full
figured, while more fitted dresses can work really well on petite figures.
For hotter days, or those who want to show off their legs, why not throw on a short
dress? From girly cute to athletic style, whatever the occasion, there is bound to be
something to suit you. Taller girls might enjoy showing off their long legs in a tiny skirt,
while the more petite figure can benefit from a mid thigh length, to help keep things in
Accessories are important when it comes to perfecting your look, particularly if you have
a big party to go to and want to make an impression. The simplest black or white dress
can be made special with the right accessories. Statement pieces can highlight your
chosen outfit, and are a great way to add more versatility to your wardrobe – especially
useful if you want to get a bit of extra mileage out of that black dress this year. We have
a great range of accessories which can help you dress up any party outfit this season.
There are a number of different prints around this spring, from birds to tribal designs and just about everything in between, but floral designs are once again making a big appearance. Flowery dresses and tops can be a great way to express your softer, more feminine side, and they can also be bold and eye-catching. Whether you love to embrace your feminine side, or prefer a tougher, edgier look, you can still make the most of florals this spring – here’s how.
Ease in gently to the floral trend by starting with floral accessories, like a scarf, or a pair of shoes with a floral motif. You don’t need to dress like your grandma’s old curtains to embrace floral this spring. We have some beautiful light printed scarves to help keep off spring chills, and add a dash of floral to any outfit.
Choose the right print for your frame and size. If you have a smaller frame you might find that big prints swamp you, and you may be better off steering towards smaller floral designs. If you are tall or larger framed, small prints can look overly fussy, and you may find larger designs more flattering. Bright colours can make you look bigger, so stick with neutrals and dark colours if you want a more slimmed-down silhouette.
Not a girly girl? You can always choose a discreet floral top, and give it a bit of a rugged edge with a light biker jacket and jeans. A funky pair of floral denim shorts and a plain top can be a great way to embrace this trend, while still maintaining an edgier image. If you are feeling brave, you can always go for a pair of floral printed jeans to wear on cooler spring days. Dress them up with heels or flats, and a light top to prevent floral overload.
Enjoy the emerging spring blossoms this season, both outside and in your wardrobe, by bringing a splash of colour and florals to your everyday style. For more inspiration, why not check out our women’s range of spring fashion?
Do you love bright neons, soft pastels, flowing fabrics and feminine styles? Then you’re in luck this spring as the new season kicks off with a range of trends to suit your taste, whether it’s classic beauty or girly glamour. The heavy layers and darker colours of winter are gone, replaced with jewel tones and light, floaty fabrics.
For those who love to play with colour, colour blocking is still around, along with big, bright prints. Whimsical designs are at the forefront – mix and match, or wear a bold print with dark neutrals for maximum impact. If you like a classic look, style it up with a pencil skirt paired with a loose top. For anyone who loves to embrace their girly side, look for parrot and bird prints in flowing fabrics. Zebras and fruit are also featuring heavily in spring designs. If you love sci-fi, there are lots of futuristic prints featuring pixelated designs and metallic colours.
As far as colours go, oranges are the star this spring. If tangerine isn’t your thing, there are plenty of more muted shades to choose from, to help you add a little bit of zing to your wardrobe. Neons are still around, and are as popular as ever. If you aren’t feeling quite brave enough to go head to toe neon, why not opt for a neon handbag or pair of bright orange shoes? If bright colours are not your taste at all, and you prefer something a little more understated, you will be relieved to know that pastels are also popular with designers this season, particularly soft mint green.
As far as styles go, think loose fitting pyjama pants, tailored or floaty dresses, tight pencil skirts and flowing tops - you’re sure to find something flattering, no matter your figure. High waistlines and flares are back, along with kitten heels. Don’t be afraid to experiment for a bit of 1970s glamour!
