SS17: Top 5 trends to look out for this season

For many of you, the idea of Spring seems a long way off - but it is now only 24 days away - FACT! 

As I'm sure you are all aware, there is no better excuse to treat yourself to a new wardrobe quite like the start of a new season. So, we thought we would do you the favour of rounding up some of this year's most anticipated fashion trends that you can expect to see everywhere this Spring/Summer.

1.      Stripes

Everything from smart pinstripe to relaxed nautical, you can expect to see stripes everywhere this Spring. Joules in Quadrant have a great range of new season items with stripes that feature on everything from the inside of a jacket to bold stripes on dresses!

2.      Pretty in Pink

From blush to fuchsia, pretty much every shade of pink is in right now – and we love it! Make sure to check out Phase Eight for some of the more subtle pink tones. Their new season collection features lots of beautiful blush and dusty pink colours that you can’t go wrong with. But, worry not if being ‘subtle’ isn’t your thing, as when it comes to pink, the brighter the better!

3.      Statement Sleeves

Think ruffles, flutes, cropped, bunched and oversized. Statement sleeves are definitely on trend this season. They have been seen all over the catwalks this year and are sure to be a huge trend all year round.

4.      Floral Prints

Now we know that this is something you see on basically every blog that wants to forecast the upcoming Spring/Summer trends, but you can’t deny that floral is always a favourite! You can expect to see plenty of pretty, floral tea dresses for those warm summer evenings, and bold flower prints just like the Precis Petie floral dress that we currently have in store!

5.      Shirts

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a shirt? Boring? Safe? Too formal? We think not! This year, the classic shirt can be turned into an outfit that will change your mind. Shirt dresses are going to be a huge trend in the summer, they can be the perfect way to look smart, yet fashionable! How could you possibly say no to that?
