Almost a whole fashion year…

Gosh, I have been very bad with my fashion blog duties! Sorry sorry :[ But alas, I am back! With lots to talk about, a whole fashion year infact.
Summer is upon us! How EXCITING! Put away your boots and fur-trimmed jackets it’s time for denim shorts and camisoles! :] There are so many great spring/summer trends this year and I will certainly be trying a few of them out! Here are my favourites;
Mint green (and pastels)
This girl looks so cute and she is TOTALLY nailing the pastels trend. It just goes to show that pastels can work on brunettes as well as blondes. So there really is no excuse not to try it. High streets shops like New Look has a really great range of pastel pieces so I recommend trying there.
A short suit!!!
This is a really great day into night outfit. You could even wear the jacket and blouse with plain black trousers for work then change into the shorts and you are ready to go for cocktails! It’s really reminiscent of Coco Chanel and the bouclé suits in her day although this is slightly edgier. If you don’t love your legs then there are many other options on the high street with slightly longer shorts or even try a pencil skirt and matching jacket. Just remember to match match match!
A touch of tropical
Tropical print is something I’m sure you will see a lot of this summer but it’s a great way to brighten up your wardrobe. You can go as crazy and matching as you’d like or just add in a printed top with a more casual outfit to make it more subtle. Whatever you choose be sure to do it! Also looks great with a tan…it’ll look like you just got back from Hawaii!
Crop tops (don’t think bad 90’s crop tops) are in this season. I know most people think ‘I can’t wear a crop top!!!’ but trust me, you can. You just need to wear it with something that flatters your figure. If you’re pear shaped, like me, wear it with a fifties pleated skirt. That way, the eye will be drawn to your upper body and the skirt will skim your hips and bum. The part of your body on show (just below your chest but above your belly-button) is in most women naturally very skinny. So it’s the best part to show off!
If you’re really body confident, wear with some skinny jeans, wedges and you are good to go!
Don’t be afraid to experiment this summer with different shapes and colours! You never know what might suit you so go for it! Be sure to let me know how you get on! :]
P.S keep your eyes peeled for a new section of this blog I’m going to start! It’s outfit time! :]
