The days stay brighter longer, the daffodils are in bloom, and London Fashion Week has just wrapped up – it must be Spring! If you suddenly find yourself wanting to shrug off the heavy textures and dark colours of Winter, and are now longing for floral prints, flowy textures, and vibrant hues, you’re not alone. Everyone wants to freshen up their wardrobe for the new season!
And as always, Littlewoods.com is your go-to source for all the latest looks. This time, we want to tell you about two lush new trends for Spring that were all over the runways in London, which we’re calling Moody Blooms and 70s Chic.
A smart-casual trend for Spring, the Moody Blooms look is all about floral prints, lace textures, and tiered and panelled construction. The colour palette contrasts gorgeous pinks and blues with graphic black and white for maximum impact. For inspiration, look to the legendary French actress Brigitte Bardot, whose off-the-shoulder tops and dresses made her a style icon – the Bardot prom dress from V by Very is a perfect example of her sexy/innocent look. And for a great day-to-evening option, the dark floral print and contemporary tailoring of this suit jacket and trouser combination make it bang on trend for Spring. Team it up with another of Bardot’s signature looks, a white blouse with black tie, plus Lipsy’s tie-heeled sandal and you’re ready to go!
This retro-inspired look offers both smart and smart-casual options. And as you might guess, the themes include smock tops, fringing detail in suede and crochet, scarf print dresses, lace-up tops, and wide-leg trousers. The nostalgic yet ultra-modern palette features rust, reds, whites and purples. V by Very once again gets the trend down pat: the suede fringe and eyelet jacket is a key look for the new season, as is the free-spirited boho maxi dress. Of course, you won’t want to forget the accessories – and the 70s theme provides loads of fun and funky options! Platforms are a must-have for Spring: these wood-platform shoes from Shoe Box with ankle straps are a perfect combination of vintage and contemporary, whilst the crossbody bag from Glamorous gets 70s-inspired detailing down to a tee.
