An injection of FUN: The latest S/S ’17 trends

Gingham, pink, embellished jackets and oriental prints: all kinds of whimsical and fun trends are in fashion this spring.

While I was out shopping for graduation dresses, I got quite distracted by all the new trends in town and thought I’d do a post to share them with you.

By the way, there’s a grand stretch in the evenings altogether!

One trend I really love so far is gingham. Particularly if it comes in the shape of a bardot top or has a few frills on it.

There are some seriously gorge bits in @topshopjervis

I can get on board with a head-to-toe ensemble either. Yaasss.

These Topshop gingham blouses are great for casual wear or dressy occasions.

Blue, pink or red gingham and simple gingham sundresses are also cute.

Gingham looks great layered over plain colours or as a contrast to a white or black t-shirt.

Let’s observe the fact Β that even Christian Louboutin created a pair of country gal style gingham Louboutins.

Oriental prints are another huge trend this spring also. I’m a big fan of this royal blue backpack from New Look and pink high heel sandals from River Island.

This backpack is €24.99 and also comes in pink.

These Kimchi Blue dresses from Urban Outfitters are also really adorable and perfect for summer.

Oriental prints are notoriously difficult to wear so try a simple accessory like this Shein wallet if you don’t want to go overboard.

But if you do want to go all out check O-Mighty’s cute co-ord sets.

Bright pink is a really popular colour this spring, especially in co-ords, jackets and oversized jumpers.

This little pink suede biker from New Look is a great transitional piece.

I love the contrast of the red embroidered letters against the bright pink background on this Bershka jumper.

Bershka is your destination for all things pink and cosy, I’m also tempted by these goodies.

How cute is this little pink Shein t-shirt with a cactus detail?

Finally, embellished denim and leather jackets are everywhere this spring. Think lace-ups, patches, floral and slogans.

I absolutely love these and need at least one in my life!

This denim jacket with black lace-up ties running up the sleeves and across the back is amazing. #need

I’m a massive Tove Lo fan so this Junkyard slogan jacket really appeals to me.

As frequent readers know I love a good Etsy original and it’s definitely the best place to find a one-of-a-kind jacket.

The skull jacket is from Corazon Beats on Etsy and the desert scene jacket is from LivingRoomCompany.

And when I win the lottery, I’ll be off to buy this Gucci denim beauty.

If you prefer leather jackets, you’ll like these embellished styles from Bershka and Forever 21.

What do you think of these spring trends? Do you have a favourite? Leave me a comment and let me know.

P.S. I finally bought myself a camera so look forward to some more outfit posts and more of my own style on here. It’s something I’ve wanted to introduce to the site for a long time.

FYI- this post was not sponsored or endorsed by any brands mentioned.

I will conclude this spring-themed post with some adorable baby ducks because we all need those in our lives.

Just some baby ducks loving life in the fountain 😍😍

  1. I love gingham! It just feels so fun and summery to me. Totally reminds me of when I wanted to be a country gal turned pop star like Hannah Montana (lol). I’d never heard of Shein before but I just pulled it up in another tab and I may be in love? Might give this a shot and pray I don’t get hit by customs!

    • Shein is great and super affordable! Plus they also have discounts and sales on all the time. I’ve ordered before and didn’t have to pay any customs tax, I’d say you’re ok if it’s just a few items πŸ™‚

  2. Oohhh first off I can’t wait to see your own style pics with your camera. I really want to get on board with the oriental trend and mix it with the jacket trwnd. I’m thinking off getting a Penneys denim jacket, some oriental print item, nice ribbon and take a scissors and needle to it!
