The Forecast Today Is Fashion

Wednesday, 23 January 2013

•What better way to welcome in 2013 than to embrace all the trends coming up this spring / summer! Yes I know it's snowing, but I am doing my best to ignore the flurry outside my window right now, as I can't express how much I dislike it without sounding like a grouch. I'm over winter and I'm fully ready for the newness this year has to bring with the most exciting thing of all being that my favourite trends for SS are easy to wear, style and copy from the high street... Here are a few of my most loved trends of the season //

Graphic Prints :

Small and cutesy polka dots or loud florals clashing with animal prints?! Depending on how brave you are, graphic prints are the perfect way of incorporating a little excitement in to your wardrobe if bold statement pieces don't hang in there! I seriously hope the high street looks to Holly Fulton for inspiration as her fun and flirty prints featured on everything from pencil skirts to raincoats this year. Gorgeous to wear and so appealing to the eye.

Butterfly Tribal Dress @ Warehouse £65
Floral Shirt Dress @ Topshop £48
Mix and Match Shift Dress @ Topshop £58

90s Nostalgia :

I love this era (see link for proof). It was all over the catwalks last year and I'm really excited to see how the high street will interpret the bold and bright trend again! Roll neck crops and slogan tees have already made an appearance in Topshop and dip dye is slowly popping up again so I'll be excited to see if bleaching makes a return on double denims and if it's finally acceptable to dig out my jelly shoes again.

Cropped Sweater by Tea & Cake @ Topshop £30
Acid Wash Skinnies @ New Look £22.99
Metallic Sneakers @ H&M £14.99
60s Swing :

A-Line dresses, shifts and Peter Pan collars. Let's be honest, the 60s didn't really ever leave us but I love that the trend will be back with a vengeance this year, with button down blouses and pencil skirts featuring heavily in shops like River Island and Primark already. It'll be exciting to see what twist is added to the simple but always effective mod con trend and I predict lots of saturated colours, short hemlines and boxy shapes. Beehive = a necessity.

Stripe Knit With Bead Collar by Gryphon @ £237
Okay, the price on this isn't very high street at all but I love it! And it can be easily achieved with a copy cat knit from Primark and a gold collar necklace!
Kimmy Boots @ Monki £50
A - L ine Zipped Skirt @ Topshop £15 (sale price)
