On The Loose
Baggy trousers are taking inspiration from noughties hip-hop and becoming baggier, like this Asos Curve pair, £30, and Pretty Little Thing’s Black Crepe Paper Bag Wide Trousers, £18, and we’re so happy about that. Pair them with a contrasting large 80s belt and a camisole and you are sorted for a night out.
Wrap blouses, wrap dresses and even wrap trousers are currently having a moment and will continue to do so in warmer months. See Topshop’s floral jacquard top, £34, Warehouse’s songbird print dress, £69, and Native Youth’s Maria pant, £50. Plus you can’t forget this green-with-envy plus size number from Boohoo, £22.This trend is super flattering and here’s a top tip for when it’s slightly colder outside - add a turtleneck underneath for some cool yet vital layering.
What is arguably the ugliest shoe trend is actually refreshingly modern when paired with an unexpected item. Try the baggy trousers and a wrap top from above with a metallic pair from Dolls Kill, £63.10, or a calf length pair from Nasty Gal, £30, or even a black every day pair from Asos, £48.50.
Mix And Match Suit
The millennial pink suit ruled 2016 and last year was a cornucopia of colourful suits. Power dressing is still on trend in spring 2018 but now you can refresh all the co-ords you own, by mixing and matching silhouettes, colours, tones and patterns, ie. wear pink wide leg trousers with a matching belt from Zara, £25.99, with a double breasted executive blazer from & Other Stories, £125.
The cousin of the cat-eye sunglasses, pointy sunglasses are best when they look like they could hurt someone in a fight. This red pair from ASOS, £14, will go with most outfits and can dress up or down. Double points if you bag a pair which also have a pastel lens like these Topshop Visors, £20.
They are billowy, comfy and make a statement: eighties puffy sleeves are getting grander and better. The catwalks saw the likes of bejewelled sleeves, off-the shoulder poets’ blouses. Whether it’s a thick jumper, Monki, £39.99, or a revamp on the blouse, Zara, £29.99, or even and even switching to senorita mode, Forever21, £17.50.
The Return Of The Jumpsuit (And Boiler-suit)
The jumpsuit is trending as its simple silhouette is attractive once again. I mean, just look at this black pleated New Look piece for £30.99. Similarly, the boiler-suit is gaining popularity (and not just because of the 80s come back) due to its versatility. It’s a good work choice and can also be worn to a party when paired with a good pair of shoes and accessories.
The Double S
With the help of Solange, brands such as LisaSaysGah! and LPA, silk and satin are back for spring 2018 and we’re happy to be floating around in something which is a transitional pick. Wear this H&M light purple piece, £49.99, all spring, or appear like a sunflower in this MissGuided mustard twist, £50. Even this Dressed In Lucy dress for only £9.99 will do too.
