Spring into Fashion!
Spring has sprung and we’re celebrating by breaking from the darker shades we’ve worn all winter and filling our wardrobe with bright colours to celebrate the beginning of the new season.
Rebooting your wardrobe with modern spring styles has never been easier.
At the top of our list for colour trends are the bold and attention-getting hues of greenery and pink yarrow. These tropical and festive colours are a reminder that spring is going to be bright.
Go Pink: How off your feminine side with a colourful blouse.
Standing close to magenta, pink yarrow is an attention-grabbing and luxuriant shade that will draw compliments. It was a pink revolution on the runways, with designers Valentino, Hermes, Balenciaga and Roberto Cavalli offering their take on the bold hue. Often seen as an all-over colour, it can also be worn as a graphic print or a floral design.
Crowned by Pantone Inc. as the colour for 2017, greenery is new beginnings, freshness and an appreciation for the great outdoors. This colour will assuredly inspire healthy lifestyles. From Gucci, Etro, Tory Burch, Emilio Pucci and Celine, most major fashion brands incorporated this top hue on their spring/summer runways. This fresh and zesty shade can be worn all over - or as an accent in pieces such as earrings.
The warmer months also revive our gym resolutions, so we’re tapping into the ‘athleisure’ trend and wearing performance-wear as everyday-wear. It’s a casual and cool trend that is becoming de rigueur for women of all ages. This sport-inspired look is all about incorporating street-style layers or a causal top with leggings. From the studio to the street, here’s how to pull this look off:
