With snow, ice and brisk winds slowly becoming a distant memory and the sun desperately trying to make an appearance, I think we can finally get away with saying that spring really is trying to arrive; pass me the sandals! Ok, maybe we’re a little keen, but pumps are atleast acceptable, right? Now the clocks have jumped forward, stealing a precious hour of our sleeping time, there is only one silver lining to this cloud and that is the anticipation for those warmer days and longer evenings and starting those oh so important summer plans. I for one, can’t wait to ditch my coat and gloves for some lighter spring/summer options and with so many great ones to choose from, I’m excited! This season we have seen the return of some of my favourite fashion trends including, neon brights, animal print and tribal graphics, which are all key for the creation of your Spring/Summer looks.
With such bold and busy trends it may be difficult deciding the best way to include these in your spring/summer wardrobe. If you’re not quite ready to step out in leopard print, or a neon dress, add a pop of colour with statement jewellery and watches from Ernest Jones to make sure you’re ahead of the fashion pack.
With neon a must, add a minimal splash of colour to your outfit with a statement necklace, a striking watch or eye-catching bag. I can’t get enough of the Cambridge Satchel Company at the moment especially their Fluoro range available in a selection of electric neon colours are sure to stand out from the crowds, perfect for festival season! Whilst a bag is essential for all the necessities, neon accessories that scream simplistic chic are also a great way to incorporate this trend. Marc by Marc Jacobs watches are perfect as they have a great selection of beautifully bright coloured timepieces ideal for finishing off your neon look and of course ensuring you do not miss your favourite festival acts!
Another favourite trend of mine this season is tribal. Indulge in the bold graphic prints and tribal-esque theme with bold, earthy, ceramic and wooden inspired jewellery and watches. This statement necklace from Gucci with bamboo is a simple and sophisticated way to give your outfit a tribal edge.
If you’re after a tribal look that’s a little on the wild side then animal prints are also back this season. This Zebra print Michael Kors watch, with a grey stone set bezel, is an effortless way of giving your outfit a touch of animal inspired glamour. I’m also a huge fan of the tortoiseshell watches; teamed with gold and rose gold detailing, these watches make for the ideal fashion accessory full of safari instinct.
