The mornings are still dark, the weather is still wet and while it never changes that much in Ireland, we are lusting after the thought of Spring.
With a new season comes a new wardrobe, and we have some fabulous trends that will take you right through Spring and Summer, which you can start wearing now.
Baby pink, lilac, lemon and mint green; nothing says spring more than a soft pastel shade. They are huge every year, but why not grab something now and be ahead of the game. A soft knit in a pastel hue will keep you snug now under your winter layers, but when the time comes you’ll be ready to ditch the coat and show off in style.
Ruffles can add femininity to any outfit while hiding those Christmas pounds at the same time. Whether they are full and frontal on a statement party dress, or an added detail on shoulders or cuffs, they can really add that certain something to any outfit.
At the same time, they are great for disguising an area which you’d rather hide. Feeling the bloat after Christmas? A wrap style top with ruffle detail can disguise the bulge without even having to hear the word diet.
You might have noticed an increase in metallic style boots over the festive season, and the trend is continuing into 2018 with metallic heels, pumps and trainers.
Add some sequins, glitter or sparkle onto your choice of footwear and you are on to a winner. Prepare to see embellished shoes everywhere.
The striking shade has been named Pantone’s colour of the year and we predict it will be everywhere by the time Spring comes around. The official Pantone colour forecasts the year’s strategic direction for the world of trend and design. Not just in ladies wear, but we predict it will be hot in home wear trends, menswear and even children’s wear.
Why not update an old wardrobe with an array of colourful and detailed accessories that will really let your personality shine through. Just because you have to dress professionally for work, doesn’t mean you can’t add a fun scarf or a pair of interesting shoes. Fashion is supposed to be fun, so why not step outside of the box and add some to your wardrobe.
That’s our round up of five trends you can expect to see over the next few months. Grab them now in the January sales if you see a bargain.
