The reasons we love Spring/Summer are endless. The longer days, bright evenings and sunshine - what’s not to love? Another fab aspect of the season changing is the excuse it gives us all to do a bit shopping! It’s finally time to bring our bikinis out of storage and pack away are jumpers, but what are the hottest trends for the coming summer months?
Well, if you’re planning on adding some fresh, spring/summer pieces to your wardrobe in the next few weeks, these following pieces are a fab place to start…
Finding the perfect pair of summer heels is a harder task than you might think! There’s often so much choice, that is can be tricky to know where to start. This year is all about pastel colours, moving well away from the standard black and tan, and toward some brighter, prettier varieties. The block heeled sandal is huge this season also, making these powder blues ones from KOI footwear bang on trend.

If we’re honest, Gingham is a bit of a marmite pattern - you either love it or you hate it. Whichever camp you sit in, this season it’s going to be everywhere. Pretty gingham shirts, mainly in bright reds and blues will feature heavily in most collections, so if you were ever going to try this picnic blanket inspired style, now is the time. The one pictured is from Asos and it incorporates another hot trend for the season - ruffles, so it’s a real winner.

Embroidered Denim Skirt
Always a Spring/Summer essential, the denim skirt is a favourite year after year . The fresh twist we’re seeing across this staple this season is the addition of embroidery! While we saw tonnes of embroidered designs across our jeans and handbags in the winter months, this summer it’ll be all over the denim skirt. We love this simple one pictured from Topshop. Teamed with a simple blouse, this look will get you through SS17 in style.

A Chic Backpack
Gone are the days that backpack where considered uncool and nerdy - they’re now basically the most ‘trendy’ accessory you can own. Still super convenient, last year saw the fjallraven rucksack become the new ‘must-have’ bag among the hipster masses, but if this isn’t really your thing, try a more sleek and sophisticated style this year with a cute leather design. The one pictures in from Mango and, let’s be honest, it adorable.

This summer is all about bright designs and out there patterns. Clashing and mixing up different patterns will be big, as will vibrant colours. With these simple essentials, you’ll be able to mix and match your wardrobe to create some edgy, but super on trend looks.
