After a rather tiring winter, we have finally started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Spring is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited for lighter jackets, bare legs and brighter colour pallets. But what trends are we seeing as the weather warms up?


Decorative stitching is everywhere for spring – you’ll find embroidered bags, shoes, jeans and shirts. It’s a fun way to add some colour to your basics.

Pale Pink

Though pastels are big every spring, pale hues of pink are really taking over this season.

Out-There Accessories

It might be fur, pom-poms or bold metallics, but accessoires are getting a little more outrageous for 2017. Don’t be afraid to take some risks and try something new!

Romantic Details

Oversized bell sleeves, pleats and frills are all over for spring. Girly girls rejoice and check out how pretty all these victorian-inspired styles are.


Though mules (and slides in general) emerged as a huge trend last year, they are still going strong. Take your pick of close-toed, furry or sandal style mules!
What trends are you most looking forward to for spring?
