I love Spring! It was sunny again today and I got a whiff of Summeryness! It makes me very excited to pack away the winter wardrobe and pull together a new one for SS13. I've put together a little visual mood board for each of the trends I'm looking forward to most. It's great though, because I always feel you can't go wrong with Spring/Summer. If you just dress the way you feel, you'll be on trend. In the summer I feel like a flower so I wear flowers, I want to go to the beach so I grab my 1950's style sunnies, etc! I think if you express the way you feel through your clothes then you're doing it right. This season, I am redoing my wardrobe with the following trends: literal floral, sheer and lace, monochromatic, frills and ruffles and colour of the season: blue's hues.

 

Floralboard If it ain't broke, don't fix it and florals for Spring/Summer definitely ain't broke. It's a reoccurring theme, but this year is a whole lot more literal. Prints of flowers or applique in beautiful colours. Not your Granny's tea set. Preen, Honor, Paul&Joe, Prada. Laceandsheerboard I love the delicateness of lace and sheer fabrics combined, or layered. It reminds me of shadows and varying levels of light on skin. It's very feminine, but much more grown up than florals. Not your Granny's curtains. Saint Laurent, Loewe, Ports 1961, Valentino. Monochromeboard Monochromes this season are fun, edgy and cool. Appropriate for all occasions and ages, and they're pretty much timeless. Not your Granny's lino. Timo Weiland, Prabal Gurung, Sportmax, Acne. Flounceboard I think flounce, frills and ruffles of any description are so beautiful! They suggest an opulence and glamour that is mysterious but confident! I have one ruffled blouse that I never have the courage to wear.. until now. (I think). Not your Granny's bedsheets. Sachin & Babi, Cacharel, Gucci, Balenciaga. 805148089blueboard I am having a love affair with blue. Last season it was navy, and before that, purple. I'll work my way around to purple again in the Autumn, but for now I covet this cobalt to duck egg blue that reminds me of all things mystical and otherworldly. I have to have it. Lust! Not your Granny's....? Stella McCartney, Damir Doma, Jean Charles De Castelbajac. I haven't managed to tackle Le Wardrobe as of yet, but at least I feel mentally prepared for the task now! In fact, I'm itching to do it! I want all these lovely things in there. What are you guys wearing this season? Let me know.
