SPRING TREND REPORT


SPRING TREND REPORT
SHEER BRILLIANCE
Lighten up! It’s time to take off those heavy winter layers and look sensuous with volumes of sheer fabrics instead. Take transparency to a new level by layering airy organza, chiffon and sheer tulle to create a look that’s romantic and modern.

Nina Ricci, $2,390 Boutique at Top Shop, $59
GARDEN PARTY
This is not your grandmother’s blouse we’re talking about. The runways were in full bloom so opt for bright and bold florals in saturated colours and abstract prints. Feeling brave? Don’t hesitate to mix and match your prints together to give this look some edge.

Marni, $1,109 American Eagle Outfitters, $49.50
BOYFRIEND DRESSING
Tomboys everywhere rejoice! As an alternative to the ultra feminine floral looks and boudoir styles, tailored classics like tuxedo jackets offer a new spin on the ‘boy meets girl’ look. Try a pair of wide legged jeans or slouchy trousers for that loose and lean fit.

Marc by Marc Jacobs, $398 Citizens of Humanity, $195
STATEMENT SHOES
Don’t let your shoes go unnoticed. Put your best foot forward this spring with fanciful flats, embellished heels or bold coloured sandals. This spring, footwear isn’t meant to be modest.

Giuseppe Zanotti, $550 Nine West, $89
RETRO REVIVAL
Pull out those bell bottoms from the back of your closet. It’s time to pay tribute to love and peace and Studio 54. Embrace the 70s hippie vibe with a modern laid back attitude. Try out a bold one piece jumpsuit or stick to the classics like retro prints, caftans, and long billowy frocks.
