Spring Summer 2012 looks set to be a fantastic season for fashion, with some beautiful trends coming off the catwalks and into our favourite clothing brands. Spring is always a great time to try out a new look or polish up your existing style, and with our new So Fabulous range here at Littlewoods we’ve got some fantastic items that will liven up your wardrobe for the coming year.
Taking inspiration from our Marina Couture trend, plus looking at the sophisticated monochrome palettes from designers like Celine, we’ve put together some of our favourite monochromatic looks from the new So Fabulous range – plus a dash or two of casual cool.
Monochrome doesn’t just have to mean black and white – it can include navy, cream, ecru and charcoal tones for a layered look. Keeping the look pared down with a couple of shades means you can wear pattern and more interesting shapes with aplomb; the So Fabulous Spot Jumpsuit combines an on-trend jumpsuit with a classic polka dot print for a classic look.
The fitted bodice and flowing sleeves and trouser legs mean that the jumpsuit hugs all the right curves while skimming over the rest; for super co-ordinating look, team with the Head over Heels Bella Polka Platforms and the So Fabulous Denim Jacket for a casual twist.
Jersey dresses are a great asset for the curvy woman, and the So Fabulous Stripe Wrap Jersey Dress is perfect for creating curves in the right places and minimising the look of other unwanted lumps or bumps. This figure hugging dress is perfect for the office, especially when teamed with the quirky Iron Fist Lovelace Oxford Flats, with their delicate and feminine lace print. For chillier spring evenings, the So Fabulous Piped Trench in stone with black trims is a classic accompaniment and provides a structured look for work or play.
We also love the So Fabulous Bust Fit Dress for a great night time look – this streamlined dress creates an hourglass illusion thanks to the black and cream panelling, while the longer length sleeves and knee-length skirt give is a sexy fifties vibe: pair with simple nude court shoes for a gorgeous, sophisticated look.
Spring and summer fashions also mean the return of casual, easy to wear pieces: this year, denim is set to be as big as ever, so pick a couple of key pieces that will work with a variety of items in your wardrobe. The So Fabulous Bum Lift Jeans are – we think – near enough the perfect jeans: their seaming detail on the back creates the illusion of a toned bottom, while the bootleg cut balances out pear and apple shapes. Available in either blue or stonewash colours, these are sure to be a staple of your wardrobe for 2012! We also really love the So Fabulous Denim Shirt that can be thrown over tees, floral dresses, or even short sleeved jumpers for the coming season. Pair your casual denim with some loafers in a cute colour block combination: the French Connection Ronald Suede Loafers are great for wearing with jeans or shorts (when we get some decent weather!).
With our newest collection of gorgeous So Fabulous clothing, you can be sure to wear the trends your way for Spring Summer 2012!
