First there was monochrome, then came the white-out. Popular high street shopping destination French Connection has brought out a capsule collection for summer aptly named White Lies. This serene range of sophisticated tailored separates nods to the ‘all things white’ trend which was spotted on the designer catwalks giving fashionistas a break from hectic prints and vibrant hues.
We associate white with a sense of purity and calm so giving your wardrobe a new season detox will not only clear your mind but your wardrobe too. This is a huge colour trend for summer 2013 and if you think this is a straightforward style then think again! Valentino, Simone Rocha and Stella McCartney opted for broderie anglaise and pretty filigree fabrics whilst Prada and Celine went for clean precise origami folds.
Eye spy with my little eye something beginning with S; sun! It looks like we’ll be getting a well deserved summer after all which is a relief to women who have been waiting to leave the house with bare legs and cover-up free. Weather like this will put anyone in a good mood but why not go one step further and be summer wardrobe ready?!
Women are continuing to be spoilt with new season arrivals that have been made for pedicured toes and flashes of skin. It might seem slightly strange at first dressing for work or a day out with friends and not having to layer up to brave the cold but this is what we’ve been waiting for. Treat yourself to a pair of stupendous sandals, flowing dress and head to the beauty salon so you are looking fabulous from head to toe.
Whether you’re a colour fanatic, minimalistic muse or print lover don’t despair as all of your favourite shopping hotspots have included a vast range of trends and styles for you to choose from to help kick start the summer season. Every woman needs a gorgeous statement bag to take to special events during the warmer months and it would seem luxury brand Wilbur & Gussie has heard our fashion pleas. They’ve brought out a delightful collection of cute silk clutches in summer’s hottest colours such as coral, pink, blue and silver metallic and each have been finished with a quirky brooch for that extra chic touch.

This spring is all about bright, vibrant prints and simple silhouettes. From ALL white ensembles to printed floral feminine dresses, spring trends are eye-catching, but not overwhelming or difficult to interpret into wearable everyday outfits. This spring, slip into something cool to wear, but boldly colourful.
So I don’t know about you; but I think it’s incredibly unfair that a-listers from around the globe got to attend California festival hotspot Coachella. They were, like every year, treated to glorious hot sunny weather and were geared up in their most fashionable festival outfits. Celebs like Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Alessandra Ambrosio, Diane Kruger and Queen of cool Alexa Chung were amongst the trendsetting crowd to provide women with inspiration for upcoming festivals taking place in the UK this season.
Floral, 90s grunge and boho are all appropriate trends for festival dressing which is down to their versatility and exceptionally amazing way to transform you into a laidback style goddess. Online fashion store SpottedOnCeleb.com is the ideal destination for women who are after a certain piece of clothing, bag or accessory that they saw their style crush wearing. It’s always a pain when you spot a celebrity featured in the press, fall in love with their outfit but have no idea what brand it is or where it’s from. That’s the genius of SpottedOnCeleb; no more searching online for hours for that must have item.
The online sensation is packed with pieces perfect for festival-goers who are after a bit of a luxe edge whilst staying in-tune with the environment. The Gary BF Tee features a gorgeous smokey tye dye print to evoke that hippie style. For an alternative look, flash a bit of midriff in the Emma Crop Top in tribal jacquard for ethnic inspiration. Both tops can be worn with a trusty pair of denim shorts like the Camilla style to create two completely different looks. It’s all about the print this season!
