Signature looks for Spring. As I begin writing, the snow is falling heavily outside, covering everything in its all encompassing white blanket and Springtime seems such a long way away.

However here are some of the biggest catwalk fashion trends so you are organised for when it finally does come.

White Shirts The humble white shirt is a Spring/Summer 2016 essential. It will see you through every occasion from casual to evening wear. Your basic white shirt in cotton will be a staple wardrobe addition when worn with your jeans for a crisp preppy look or worn loose with a tank underneath - perfect for your day to day life. At the other end of the fashion spectrum, white shirts were seen matched with beautiful summer skirts and elegant trousers for a much more sophisticated look as seen at Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrerra and many more. These shirts are more fitted to the body and are in luxurious and more expensive fabrics like silk and taffeta, some have beautiful ruffled necklines rather than a collar and some are swathed and tied elegantly around the body. However you wear it, whenever you wear it and how often you wear it is up to you, the important thing is that you get one!

Spanish Influences Conjuring up memories of sultry warm holidays in the Mediterranean, this trend is a romantic and feminine style suitable in its many guises for just about everyone. Alexander McQueen, Lanvin and Gucci showed the most beautiful creations but similar (and much more affordable) styles are beginning to filter through to the high street shops. Featuring off the shoulder tops, lots of ruffles, bold red and bright colours and pretty flamenco style skirts. It’s time to dream a little dream of the holidays. Ole!
