Ceri Heathcote's Key Spring Trends

18th Apr 2013
Last weekend, we got our first proper taste of Spring for 2013. It may have felt like it was never going to arrive but now it has, it is time to pack away those winter woollies and dust off something bold and bright for the season ahead. As always, there are plenty of trends around for Spring, so I have picked out a few of my favourites using the Oxfam Online Shop. I love these looks, not just because they are so now but I also think the pieces can be styled in different ways and will keep working for year after year.
Almost every fashion blog that I checked out lately has had its own version of a striped or monochrome trend. Of course there are plenty of stripes to be found on Oxfam Fashion and just remember that stripes are great for creating an optical illusion. If you want to elongate, go for vertical or diagonal stripes, to add shape, go for horizontal stripes. Stripes are such a classic and bold look. You can stick with pure monochrome, add brightly coloured accessories or even a camel coloured jacket for a very chic look.
Florals are always a popular choice for Spring but this year they are getting brighter, bolder and busier. For a really on on trend look try combining two different floral pieces. The trick to really making this work is to pick floral prints with similar colours or patterns.
Wearing neons makes a brave style statement and whether this look will work for you depends partly on you colouring but also whether you have the confidence to carry it off. For those who want to give it a try but are a little neon shy try wearing with neutrals like beige or grey for a slightly more subtle take on the trend.
What styles will you be wearing this Spring?
