Spring it on

What will we be wearing this Spring/Summer? I’ve been browsing some of the high street and designer trends and here’s what I found.

Frayed denim is a really popular trend as seen here on Rihanna wearing Marques’ Almeida and has been seen on street stylers worldwide also.

Marques’ Almeida are responsible for this look slowing creeping in from the catwalk to mainstream.

Frayed denim can look a bit odd but remember we all thought distressed ripped jeans were odd too and how wrong we were! It can be blended into a casual or formal look.

For an adventurous look, try these long frayed edge jeans from Bershka.

Cropped styles look best, like these also from Bershka.

Zara have an entire editorial devoted to denim on their website. These white frayed denim styles are perfect for summer.

Two-tone denims are also dominating the high street market this year. Topshop is the best place for this look.

Culottes- are these ultimate unwearable trend? I hated them at first because they are deeply unflattering and I like fitted clothing. However some people manage to make them look amazing-kudos! I think heels and a fitted top are key.

I prefer the more fitted culottes but these super wide leg ones from Boohoo look amazing (on the model anyway!) I’m not 100% sold on them for myself just yet.

Leandra Medine looking gorgeous and not one bit repellant in culottes..sigh. See my Pinterest fashion board for some more inspiration.

And the shoe of the season? Why python print! I have an unhealthy obsession with this print so I love these boots and shoes. These boots are from a new online store I’ve discovered, LASULA.co.uk.

I suspect there is no such thing as “python” print, it’s all good old-fashioned snakeskin! Indeed a customary search of Zara.com revealed one item tagged “snake” and zero tagged “python”. 😛

Lace-up styles are still popular, these babies from Bershka are just €25.99 right now. (I still can’t afford them though).

So what do you think of these trends? Anything I’ve missed? Leave me a comment using the grey speech bubble icon on the bottom right and let me know.

Hope you have all enjoyed this post and my last post interviewing Sinead Burke, it’s been one of my most popular posts this year so far. You can follow @joyofblogs on Instagram and Twitter or see my Facebook page here. Thanks for reading as always.

  1. I’m not a huge fan of faded denim. I’m a dark denim kinda girl. Totally agree that only certain people can pull off culottes, and I am not one of them!
