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.

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  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.

Hope you all enjoyed this post and don’t forget to check out my InstagramTwitter and Facebook page here.

Thanks for reading as always.

River Island Spring Sale

River Island currently have a sale on-perfect to grab a bargain dress for going out or a new spring jacket. River Island sales tend to be messy, manic and confusing so before you shop here are my top picks from their sale!

I love these light blue  courts reduced from €60 to €30.

These real leather boots look really durable and are half price at €45.

I’m normally not a huge fan of slogans but this one is great! And summarises my life perfectly.  It would look perfect with ripped jeans and white plimsolls or flatforms. At  €8 it’s Penneys’ prices!

alt="slogan tshirt"

This “Copenhagen” slogan t-shirt is equally cute and is reduced from €25 to €8.

I love pop-art and comic book prints and I think this tablet case is adorable. You could always use it as an oversized clutch if you don’t have a tablet… 😉 It’s now only €8 reduced from €25! I bought my laptop case in River Island a few years ago and people are always commenting on how pretty it is for a functional item. This tablet cover is from a brand called Skinnydip, if you are looking for a novelty bag or fun phone case go visit their site now. You won’t regret it!

Continuing in a similar vein this geometric dress is very unusual and cool. I think it would really make you stand out on a night out! It’s now €24 reduced from €75.

I also like this sexy body-con dress now €24. I tend to shy away from cut-out panels as they can look really cheap and tacky but this one is really small. I also love the straps and the  criss-cross back of the dress.

This coin ring is only €1! No need to say anymore!

This marl and leather mix perforated jacket is really cute. It’s real leather and was €241, now €99.

alt="sporty leather jacket"

Finally colourful biker jackets are really big this spring and I really like this one in green. It’s a gorgeous colour and a nice alternative to black. They also have it in red/orange colour. It’s now €35, reduced from €80. It’s a lovely jacket for spring and I’m really looking forward to wearing jackets and light coats again. That winter felt like the longest in history….I am so sick of wearing coats and layers and tights! Bring on spring!
