Well, it's time to shake off the January blues as we head towards February - full of commercial valentines day rubbish (which i love anyway), rainy days and the fabulous pancake day. Who doesn't a love a little cheese factor and junk food? ;)
What's more, it's one step closer to Spring, which i'm going to talk about in this post. This upcoming spring season is said to inject a little light colour as to evolve from the dull, dark colours of winter/fall, to the build-up of summer. Say bye-bye to the January Blues and hello to..
Taken from www.boohoo.com they're already showcasing their denim collection for the spring season, including dungarees and faint blue dresses. Yep, just when you think denim can't be done once it's been done so many times the past year with denim flannel shirts and jackets - it's returning. This time however, it's just sticking to the form of shorts, shirts and pinafores. Yet, they do say that denim is timeless.
Springs' rumored to be a good one for fashion. What to expect?
- PASTEL COLOURS
- WESTERN BOOTS
- LEATHER JACKETS
- CREAM LACE
these are the major trends to occur, pastels are once again claiming back their fashion title this year with powdery blues and light pinks, teamed with the floral pattern. Which dates back from 2011, with a slight delicate nod to the 70s. From the pastels expect floaty dresses, and cute playsuits to wear when the weather brightens up a bit. However, the khaki colour is also making a comeback from back around the 90-2000s, and no, it's no army camouflage which flocked us all last summer. It's making its mark in jumpers, boots, tired maxi dresses and even discoloured trousers.
The image above is of the 'Spring Preview' new season at River Island, i've also researched other high-street stores such as Topshop and New Look, and they're all showing the same kind of stuff. Especially, with the 'western' cowgirl esque trend which is more towards the footwear side, for a casual everyday look.

Not forgetting the 'Leather Jacket' trend from last year which is carrying on straight through to this spring. This is quite handy really, as it teams well with a dress and ankle boots which seems to be the key this upcoming season. Last of all? a very 60s-style Monocrome. Full of polka dots, stripes and the odd dogtooth pattern this trend has it all with the shapes. This, is from www.boohoo.com, check it out!
What are your thoughts on the Spring Season looks?
