It’s finally here! This Winter seems like it’s been going on for far too long. I don’t think the recent ‘Beast from the East’ has helped, and has scuppered plans for everyone up and down the country! A quick mention to all those who got married on the blustery weekend just gone – I hope everything went okay! But now we’re slowly starting to pack away the large jumpers, and dry cleaning the puffy coats that we no longer need; it’s time to welcome back Spring! With the warmer months in mind, what can you do to ensure your wardrobe is ready for the new season?

The first thing to do is identify what colours you should be aiming for. We’ve seen already on the fashion catwalks of the capital that ice cream hues are the new pastel. Bright colours such as lavenders, lemon, and oranges have graced the new collections from Michael Kors, Victoria Beckham, and Kurt Geiger. It’s perfect timing too, as the modern colours used in the Easter time are pastel tones of secondary colours. The beauty with pastel hues as well is that they work well across the spectrum of skin tones, so whether you’re worried you’ll be washed out, or concerned over the contrast, don’t be! Wear these colours with pride.

The next thing on my list to look out for is what footwear trends are currently in style at the moment. What we predict for the new season is quite a lot more satin pumps being worn, as well as the unusual rearing its ugly head. By that I mean clear plastics and Perspex. While it’s interesting and has been adorned by the new collection in Chanel, by worry is the sweating? If it becomes a warm day and your foot is trapped in a plastic boot, surely that would be uncomfortable before long? Another thing you may notice about materials is the ‘Crayola colour pop’, where a lot more shoes are featuring bright eye-watering colours to really make heels a statement. Sandals of all styles are now coming into their prime, as your little piggies won’t recoil under the bitter wind of the Winter. Silver sandals and gold pumps with large diamanté embellishments will be the perfect go-to this Spring!
