When it comes to the new season, fashion is finally loosening up. Spring/summer 2021 was a chaotic and creative mix on what post-pandemic fashion could look like, and this season the frantic energy is here to stay – with an explosion of juicy hues, clashing prints and surprising accessories across this seasons runways.
Here are the 5 biggest spring/summer fashion trends you need to know about.
The throwback Kate-Moss-off-duty staple is back and ready to dominate your spring wardrobe, The biker jacket. The likes of Balenciaga, Prada and McQueen have all showcased leather bikers this season – We’ve put our Jayley twist on the classic silhouette pairing an established bikershape with a futuristic silver faux leather and a contrasting floral print.
It’s 2022 there’s no excuse for neutrals. And why would you want them? When the colour combinations on the catwalks currently are so juicy. With names such as Valentino sending models down the runway in hues of raspberry and colbalt blue, or Halpern where tangerine and fuchsia merged deliciously. We go bold every season. So this summer we’re ready!
Up all night glamour, the catwalks are showcasing our desire to finally be able to get dressed up and go out on the town. Sequins, embellishments & feathers all dancing down the runways, a celebration of the sweet release from lockdowns. We say being over-dressed is a thing of the past, so… who’s ready to wear there sequins to the beer garden?
The siren song of the 2000’s is calling, and it’s going to be hard to resist come spring. It was hard to ignore the butterflies, skinny scarves & body chains seen on the Blumarine models.If low-rise jeans and crop tops aren’t your thing though, we’ve got plenty of alternatives to teleport you back to 2002. Try adding a faux Monogolian cuffed jacket to your spring wardrobe, paired with a mini handbag to really channel your inner Paris Hilton.
The backbone of the spring wardrobe, Trench coats. This season the staple takes on a less classy and more sassy approach. Runways such as Balmain and Prada are both showcasing buttery leather styles. The patent leather trench is a more grown-up up approach to the biker jacket trend, and can be shrugged on over pretty much any outfit. We’ve taken it to the next level by adding metallic hues similar to Gucci’s Milan looks. If this is too much for you, try our classic trench shape with some added drama and throw on our fringed faux suede trench.
The chain strap bag – a timeless investment. McQueen, Valentino & Balmain all proved that no outfit is complete without a chain-adorned bag. Gone is the trend of the micro bags, this season is all about practicality! Our crossbody Charlotte bag ticks all the boxes, and we have a colour to match any outfit.
