Spring Fashion Cascades of colour
The latest fashion trends from The Bunbury Life’s resident fashion expert... little eccentricity too. Monochrome colours work well as do metallic tones. And, although fashion is currently all about clashing prints, pieces in a multi-tone print look best with a solid colour, sheer fabric layered on top, or alongside lace or leather. Another hot trend is the peplum, a reworked idea of the frill attached to skirts or jackets that was first seen over 200 years ago! It’s a feminine way to nip in the waist and add extra curves. Moving away from the traditional look, it’s exciting to see peplum inspired frills and structured shapes curving their way down blouses and jackets to wave at the hips. More focus on waists comes in the form of high waisted skirts. The skirts are coming in all shapes and lengths but they keep the idea of the curvy silhouette in mind. Tuck in the top or leave it out and add a belt to keep the waist cinched in. As it’s spring, shorts are back! Sharp tailored, high waisted shorts, which are short but also have a chic look with a blazer and satin or sheer top. They look sassy too in silk or leather with a subtle flared cut Honey & Beau to the leg. at 43rd on Stephen
With the promise of summer around the corner, spring is the season of bright ideas and new fashion thrills. And, just like the bursting buds shouting out ‘springtime’ around us, colour is splashing out of stores and onto the streets. Yellow is the primary colour in which to be noticed this season. It dictates hope, excitement and fun and will be seen in varying intensities from sorbet lemon, through to citrus and neon. As for wearing it, look to find the shade that suits your skin before deciding how far to go. For a bold look, team neon yellow with cobalt blue or tangerine and focus on a clean line to the outfit to create a striking effect rather than a confusion of ideas. Gentler citrus, primrose, mustard and pastel shades are around too in delicate chiffon and sheer fabrics, perfect for creating a monochrome outfit. If you don’t want to commit to a whole outfit in this bright trend, just add a bag, belt, headscarf or heels in yellow or a lick of neon polish to your nails. As well as the array of yellows around this season, spring is also very much about pastels. Colours reminiscent of meringue, sugar coated almonds and sorbets. Lilac, blue, mint, peach, lemon and pink are fabulous as a foil to a neon yellow but make for a great look on their own too. Look out for skinny ankle-skimming jeans in a pastel shade together with a billowy sheer top. Finish off with wedge heels, a spring must-have, or ballet flats, and avoid strappy sandals as they make the outfit look too fussy. Then choose a nail polish in a milkshake colour. Prints have not been forgotten and this season it is the multi-tone print that is taking off. Not prints with a regular repeated pattern but those with an abstract flow of colour and movement. It’s an individual look and adds a 8
