If keeping up with all the latest trends leaves you wondering what’s hot and what’s not, then don’t worry! We have sifted through the highs and lows of the fashion world and brought together some of the key looks for spring/ summer 2014.
For early 2014, it looks like the trend for embellishments is set to continue, think over-sized jewels worn on tops and shirts to work the look. Alternatively, nail the trend with embellished footwear such as our Nude Diamante Ballerinas, £12.99, or our Tan Spikey Studded Ballerinas also £12.99. The lighter tones of these ballerinas are perfect for springtime.
The edgy rock look we saw in 2013 is still around, though lightened with sheer fabrics. To make it work for the summer, team slogan tees and denim with our Black or White Gladiator Sandals, £14.99, for a fab rock-chick look.
While the rock look relies on a darker colour palette, most of the spring/ summer trends see lighter shades coming back into our wardrobes. Pretty pastels, such as candy pinks and mint are all on trend and delicate fabrics including chiffon and lace are all set to big news. Lace has been around for a few seasons and is easy to wear across all ages. To add just a touch to your look, add a pair of our Lace Ballerinas, available in pink, black or cream (£9.99), to your outfit, they look great with everything from skater-style dresses to jeans.
And where would spring fashion be without a touch of floral? This year is no exception, floral and indeed any type of print is big news in the fashion-stakes. For a relaxed look opt for our Denim Flower Canvas Pumps, £7.99 and pair them with jeans or cropped trousers for fresh-summer style.
Of course, the best way to look great is to opt for clothes that suit you, whether they are this season or last! Pastels may be in, but if they make you look washed out, stay away from them and choose deeper shades you know work for you. Remember also that you can easily incorporate a key trend through your accessories, if, for example, floral is not your thing, tying a floral scarf to your handbag or choosing flower embellished sandals will add instant fashion kudos!
