The past few years have seen a lot of recurring fashion trends and key items return from eras long gone. The new meaning of “wardrobe essential” is quite subjective these days and includes pieces that are able to be transitioned from season to season with ease. For spring/summer 2018, a few select pieces have made their way to the top of the list of items of clothing and women’s loungewear that you need to start wearing this season.
Blurring the line between workwear and casual, belted trousers are one of the key items of clothing for spring/summer 2018. Available in on-trend pastels, bright blocks and neutral colours, you’re sure to find a pair that seamlessly fit in with other items in your wardrobe. Pair them with a smart pair of stilettos or your favourite trainers for an edgy finish.
The trend for smart streetwearis growing stronger with each season. The current “must-have” item is a pair of chunky trainers. Previously a favourite with dads on holidays in the 80s, chunky trainers are one of this season’s biggest trend.
Providing full coverage, the midi dress is an ultimate style icon. With a recent rise in styles available, the midi dress is the perfect item for transitioning from winter to summer, workwear to party wear, and beyond. Your wardrobe isn’t complete without one.
Following the fashionable streetwear trend, the oversized hoodie is a key piece for fitting in with the athleisure wear crowd. Everyone loves wearing comfy, oversized hoodies, and if that makes us fashionable, then we’re fine with that.
Polka Dot Tops
One for everyone, the polka dot top is back this season. Whether you go for a sophisticated work blouse, or a casual tee to throw on at the weekend with your favourite jeans, the polka dot top is a trend that everyone can get on board with, no matter your budget or style.
While the typical British weather isn’t allowing us to break out the summer co-ord set just yet, it’s fashionable cousin, the Knit Set, is the two-piece that will stylishly see us to that day. Available in a wide range of colours, styles and fit, there’s one to suit everyone and they can be dressed up or down – perfect for work during the week, and running errands at the weekend.
