Forgetting a few minor hiccups along the way courtesy of Mr Weatherman, summer is well and truly on its way! Sleeves are getting shorter, colours are getting brighter and, as lockdown lifts, we’re ready to put our best foot forward as spring turns into summer.
We’ve highlighted some of our favourite looks from the spring summer runways to inspire you – from key transitional pieces for chillier days, to full-blown summer styles. One thing is for certain: low-key is last season and we're looking forward to putting some oomph back into our fashion choices! Check out our top fashion trends for spring/summer '21 below.
Nothing says summer-ready quite like a soft, pastel palette. We’re talking sky blue, mint green, cherry-blossom pink and pale daffodil yellow, complemented by stark-white accessories.
Take a look at Tommy Hilfiger’s SS21 collection for fresh inspiration, which is packed with preppy threads that are perfect for the tennis court or poolside!
Escapism meets optimism in this sunnny trend. Whether you're hitting the UK shorelines or BBQing in your back garden, channel summer holiday vibes in throw on dresses, beach bags, straw hats – and anything else that would normally find a place in your summer suitcase!
When it comes to footwear, ditch laces for relaxed slip-on styles like these knitted trainers from Dune London. Add bonus points for nautical detailing, such as blue and red colourways and stripes.
No, we don’t mean black and white! This monochromatic look means going all-out one colour. Mix and match tones, textures and fits, but choose one colour and run with it. You can go head-to-toe colour, or let one hue rule the roost.
Monochrome styling is one of the easiest ways to rock a totally put-together look and it’s bang on trend! Win, win.
Making environmentally conscious decisions about what you wear is a good look... and vital for safeguarding the future of our planet. The good news is that many brands are shifting the narrative from fast fashion to sustainability, making it easier than ever to go green.
