Spring 2014 Trends to Brighten Up Dull Days

Things are looking colourful for the season ahead which will be sure to snap you out of the winter blues so if one of your resolutions is to update your wardrobe then take note of these upcoming trends which you can start investing in now. Stripes in candy hues is a great revamp of the classic print and this year come in varying thicknesses and can be seen on anything from skirts to accessories to keep options open.

Pastels remain ever-popular colour choices for spring dressing and this time round these beautiful sorbet shades are packing more of a style savvy punch in textured fabrics such as leather and lace. For a more intense look though, blue is the way to go next season so keep things ultra-cool in head-to-toe cobalt or subtle with a pair of heels.

A fabric you wouldn`t necessarily associate with spring is leather but designers and high street brands have gone style crazy for the texture, including it in their latest collections, proving its versatility and worthy fashion credentials. Cast aside images of grungy rock inspired looks though as leather is showing its softer and more feminine side for next season. Say goodbye to classic black and welcome leather`s new colour palette which consists of pastel and buttery hues.
