When the clocks go forward and there’s a definite warmth in the air, our thoughts turn to spring trends in the Shoppersbase office.
We start scouring the fashion magazines, trawling the internet and stalking the clothes shops, keeping our eyes out for what will be the next ‘biggest thing’.
We are pleased to report that we now have made a unanimous decision on the coolest spring fashion trends – see if you love these as much as we do!DENIM JACKETS
Not just any old denim jackets, jackets with a decidedly different take.
Like this Denim Panelled Wool-blend Bouclé and Denim Jacket – $430, from VictoriaBeckham.com
This laser-cut denim jacket is made in Italy by Sonia Rykiel and doesn’t look anything like your typical jacket – £715.
This classic jacket from Frame Denim is crafted from stone-wash denim, and cuts a gorgeous silhouette which is flattering on any body shape. Made from structured denim – £310.FLATFORMS
Ideal for this time of year, when the weather is not baking hot, but too cool for flip flops, check out these super bright Eeight Valentina Multi Colour Chunky Heeled Sandals priced at £70.00.
Blanca is a Spanish inspired flatform from Kurt Geiger and use different textures including snakeskin and flowers to create a unique sandal – £199.00
These FAYE nude and white flatforms from PublicDesire.com are ideal for holidays when you want to take a cheap pair away with you for the beach and evenings – £14.99.BOMBER JACKETS
There’s something about spring that screams bomber jackets and varsity fashion. This one by Scotch-Soda.com gives a great nod to the season by incorporating a floral design on the sleeves, and we love the popping green colour. Costs $225.
This bomber jacket from Zara.com also features flowers, but on the chest and in primal shades, which means you can colour contrast nicely with neutral separates. Priced at $69.99.
If you are looking for a bomber jacket that works well for the office, this one from Fenn at Ganni is ideal. In blocked neutral colours, it will go with monochromes, beiges and all shades of green. A steal at £200.FLORAL TROUSERS
You couldn’t get away with floral trousers at any other time of the year, even in summer they are considered a little passé. Spring however is the perfect time. This pair from Zara.com flow beautifully from the high waist, and feature large flowers and contrasting piping. Costs £29.99.
These floral trousers from NewLook.com have an all-over pink and black flower design that would work well in both the day and evening. Comfort is assured with the drawstring waist. Priced at £19.99.
Emilia Wickstead says that: “The floral print is my favourite pattern from the collection – I still get excited by looking at it.” These colourful and bright ‘Sammy’ pants are made from basket-weave and feature a cropped, flared hem. Costs £590.
Finally, in a throwback to the 70’s, halter-neck jumpsuits are making a huge comeback. The fashion runways have been packed chock full of them, including Missoni and Prada, and when big labels start showing off new designs, the high street takes notice.
Our first jumpsuit is from RiverIsland.com and is made from satin crepe. This Salmon Pink halter neck wide leg jumpsuit costs £55.00 and features an open back. Great for a posh night out.
Trust Missoni.com to get it right. This halter-neck jumpsuit is crocheted and uses the label’s iconic striped pattern. The 70’s feel is accentuated by the wide leg and the nipped in waist. Costs £710.
This jumpsuit is by Topshop.com and has a chevron embroidered top with beaded trims and loose, wide fitting legs. Priced at £45.
