1. Statement Sunglasses:

When the sun arrives, no outfit will be complete without a stunning pair of sunglasses to dress up your everyday clothes.

Check out this season’s sunglasses on the highstreet – each pair is louder, bigger, brighter and more fabulous than the next.

2. Luscious Leather:

A luxe leather piece is a must have for your Spring wardrobe. Think simple shapes, rich colours and your luxe leather dress or skirt could work for you in the office and in the bar after work! Leather pieces should be seen as an investment – they may drop out of fashion but they’re sure to be back with a vengeance further down the line.

3. Shorts Suits:

This is another must have piece that can work perfectly in the office or at the weekends. It’s exactly how it sounds – a suit jacket with a beautiful pair of matching shorts. It’s the perfect way to show off those pins while still looking professional and of course fashionable. When looking for your gorgeous short suits, think floral prints, bright colours and bold stripes.

4. Sports + Dresses = Sporty Dresses!

A-line skirts with a sleeveless body lets you show off those tanned pins and bronzed shoulders. The beauty of the sporty dress is that it can be dressed up with a pair of wedges or heels or dressed down with flip flops or pumps.

5. Flat Shoes Are In!

Hooray for our feet – this Spring high heels are out and low heels and flat shoes are in! Pointy shoes are back with a brand new look – you’ll find them with dainty ankle straps and cute little heels. They’re an excellent addition to your wardrobe; twin them with a smart pencil skirt, your shorts suit or even your jeans.statement sunglasses

Stripes are set to be big this season – vertical or horizontal, black or white, skirts, jackets or trousers – you’ll find them everywhere this Spring. For navy stripes think nautical chic and when it comes to denim think all out American style.

For you daring people out there you will have no trouble finding something to wear and flaunting a bit of flesh on a night out. Dresses with daring cuts outs, skirts with very high splits, and tummy teasing separates – the beauty of this trend is that there is a style to suit every body shape.

9. Spring Colours = Black and White:

Black and white the perfect combination for every day or night wear. Many of us might be reaching for the floral prints now Spring is here, but while the floral prints are lurking here and there the black and white theme is everywhere! The advantage of this trend is that black and white can be carried off all year round, whatever the season.

10. Bermuda Shorts:

Many of us girls will breathe a sigh of relief at the departure of bum cheek bearing, cut off shorts. Bermuda shorts are here, they’re feminine, they’re slouchy and they cover up a little more flesh!
