What to wear this spring/summer?

Although the weather has been somewhat questionable over the last few weeks, the warmer weather is definitely creeping upon us! So let’s be brave and pack away the winter woollies, knitted scarves and padded coats, in favour of summer dresses, sandals and gloriously bright prints.

Read our overview of the latest trends to hit the high street this spring/summer.

 

Neon…

Thought neon was left back in the 80s fashion memory banks? Think again! Neon has already crept its way to our high street shelves thanks to a number of celebrities (think Kim Kardashian) working some fluorescent hues of late. And it looks set to continue into 2019.

 

Think tailoring, two pieces, capes, separates – as long as it looks like a shade of highlighter, you’re good to go.

 

Release your inner hippy…

Boho is back but with a neo-modern twist. Long, languid lines and desert hues, mixed with clashing carpet and tile prints, brings this look bang up-to-date with today’s trends.

 

Finish this trend by pairing with amulet jewellery, crochet pieces and raffia accessories for the ultimate neo-boho look.

 

Sunshine shades…

We saw shades of terracotta hit the catwalk in 2018 and this is set to continue for summer 2019. Warm rusty reds are still bang on trend, with orange and wine colours paring together perfectly.

 

Marigolds will join this look as sunny shades of yellow hit the highstreet – hopefully signalling a hot summer ahead!

 

Tie-dye…

If colour isn’t your thing, then this season’s trends may prove testing! Along with waves of neon and sunny hues of orange and yellow – tie-dye is making a big comeback this year. Forget the 70s DIY t-shirts, this season is all about sophisticated tie-dye with blazers, knits and midi-skirts aplenty.

 

Cool crochet…

Following on from the tie-dye vibes comes the ultimate in ’70s, California Dreamin’ craft-work. Keep your crochet cool in monochrome – but you can still add splashes of colour to your outfit if you prefer brights.

 

If you don’t want to go full crochet and just fancy dipping your toe into this trend, try pairing boho-neon with a crochet bag for the ultimate hippy-chic outfit.

 

Animal instincts…

This spring/summer sees animal print still going strong, with leopard print in particular dominating the catwalk. From casual kaftans to smart tailoring, animal print is here to stay.

 

It’s safe to say that leopard print has become a staple in every fashionista’s wardrobe, so why not release your animal instinct and take a walk on the wild side!

 

Whatever fashion trend you’re into, you can be sure to find what you’re looking for at The Springs, Thorpe Park this winter.

With Outfit, H&M, River Island, TK Maxx and Next, along with a whole range of other retailers and restaurants, on the doorstep, why not head over for a spot of well-deserved retail therapy?
