Spring is only just round the corner (believe it, or not) so we can look forward to not having to layer up and to, hopefully, seeing a bit more sun. With that in mind our wardrobes may need a little updating, so I’ve done a little searching to find cheaper alternatives to my favourite trends seen on the catwalk. Here we go…
- The button down dress
Above is a gorgeous white button-down off the shoulder dress from Warehouse on ASOS. It has a lovely sweetheart neck line and an A line skirt. Im not sure if I would be brave enough to wear this as I am far too clumsy to wear all white but I thought it was to beautiful to not include it in this post. So if you are not as clumsy as me and white dresses are right up your street this dress would be perfect for you for the spring season. Just imagine it with a straw hat and tan shoes… summer in an outfit.
Below is a lovely pale yellow button down dress from Urban outfitters. It has the same sweetheart neckline as the dress above but this one has straps instead of being off the shouldered the skirt is more relaxed with pockets. This is more casual than the dress above so would be perfect wearing casually, maybe with a denim jacket and a pair of white trainers. I love that it is yellow, it oozes sunshine and spring/summer weather.
2. Floral dreams
Floral is always in at springtime; after all it is the season of new growth and new life. So these are a couple of my favourite ways to incorporate a little bit of floral in your life this spring.
3. Rainbow: colour, colour and more colour.
Inject a little more colour in your life with these items, you can go for a full outfit of multicoloured greatness or wear a multicoloured jumper or jacket – the choice is up to you.

Or why not go for one block colour? I adore this one on urban outfitters that is in my favourite colour – YELLOW.

Smart or casual; blazers are great for everything. Smarten up an outfit for work with a more tailored blazer, go for one more loose fitting for a casual day out or go for something a bit quirky with a tux fitting blazer. The options with this trend are endless.

Illustrations or photos, having people on your clothes is a growing trend. I already inject this style into my hand painted jackets and now it is becoming more and more popular with illustration graphics and photos of celebs. Who you want to wear on your clothes is down to you, there are a lot of options out there. Here a few Ive found….
ASOS and Zara also do some with celebrities like Whitney Houston and David Bowie if thats more up your street.
