This year spring and summer will more or less blend into a big fashion moment, with intertwining style statements. Urban wear is getting braver and braver – colours, accessories, detailing, embellishments – it’s never enough when dressing for a date night, night out or just a casual event. Here are this season’s top picks for the modern woman’s wardrobe.
Bright and brighter
Colour splashing, bold combinations and colour blocking – don’t be afraid to invest in a dress in teal, hot pink or neon green. These are the colours of spring and they are perfect for summer too. Pair orange with blue or purple; red with pink; yellow with green or blue; purple with pink.
The LBD with a twist
The classic little black dress is a timeless piece in the woman’s wardrobe. Add a little twist to it by putting on a hat, a belt in a bright colour or a soft cotton scarf with a fun print. There is nothing trendier than adding a little modern edge to a traditional outfit.
This spring one of the hottest trends in all runway shows was the Surrealist print. Along with other art prints and patterns, art is all over women’s clothing. Pick a dress that looks like an artist’s canvas.
Another traditional pattern – the florals- is back in fashion. Invest in a cheerful and bright sundress you can wear on a daily basis. Pair it with a jacket on the not so warm spring days.
Peter Pan Style
The famous Peter Pan collar is everywhere – on sleeveless tops, blouses and dresses. Buy a shirt made of chiffon and wear it with a blazer.
