Spring 2014 – Pastels are a traditional part of springtime. For 2014, fashion designers have given them a new twist – creating sophisticated silhouettes and adding touches of understated colour that transform the simplest of designs. I’ve been feeling the winter wardrobe rut setting in lately. As much as I love boots, opaque tights and layering, I am restless for springtime, ballet pumps and sandals. I have been perusing twitter, the internet and fashion magazines oh and not to mention London fashion weekend catwalks over the last couple of weeks, and here are a few of the fondant fancies I am excited about this spring. Yes ladies spring is on its way.
This year pastels are about the hottest trend going. Pair blush, violet and mint with white or black for a classic but updated look.
ONE The leaf resin droplet earrings are so gorgeous, it is times like this when I wish I had my ears pierced.
TWO The Chanel-esque bag from River Island is great for day to night arm candy.
THREE I love the necklace and the name Creme Brulee – hmmmm yummy.
FOUR The Pleats and lace combination from Warehouse is effortless yet stunning.
FIVE Boyfriend coats were worn by fashionistas at London Fashion Week.
SIX Wide Leg Trousers. After a few years of skinny jeans, the wide leg trouser is back. This ladylike style is universally flattering, just make sure you wear the right height of heel. Your trousers should fall exactly a quarter inch off the floor. If your trousers are dragging on the floor, you will look sloppy, but if they’re too short, you’ll look frumpy so your tailor is your friend.
SEVEN Clutches are my favourite accessory at the moment and this one from ASOS is no exception. Structured, floral pattern and pastel, perfect for S/S 2014
EIGHT I spotted this little gem at the weekend in Primark, just check out the price as well…
NINE I want these shoes……
