Looking at the new trends, it is obvious that there is a reluctance by High Street/Supermarket fashion brands to really branch out in terms of style, the looks are very much casual, outdoorsy, focused around jeans, t-shirts and pretty jumpers, with only the addition of blazers a nod that some people may be returning to work soon. There is no real concession to the fact that we may be able to eat out again soon, or sit in pub gardens, the looks are not dressy in any way. But they are fresh and pretty, they do contain some really gorgeous seaside prints in particular that wouldn’t look out of place at Boden or Seasalt, and they are also full of positive slogans that seem to indicate that things can only get better.
Jackets and Blazers
Have to say I’m absolutely loving the colours, from Ice Cream shades like the pink and mint, to the most vibrant red blazer that would totally multi task in your wardrobe.
My favourite sort of print in Summer, one which I usually look for in skirts and dresses, but which Tu are using for t-shirts and tops. The crisp white shirt designs are also gorgeous, team with denim cut offs and tan leather sandals for a classically elegant, and timeless look.
No brainers. Wear with jeans, or tucked in a tulle skirt and teamed with trainers aka Cyndi Lauper 1984.
The one surprise was the sophistication of the latest bag drop. The navy Chanel style is gorgeous, I will be heading back to store to get this as I’m obsessed with anything you can wear cross body.
Simple, classic designs that can easily be worn dressed up or down. Wedge sandals would look so good with the denim shirtdress come Summer, for now add a cowboy boot and a natural coloured cardigan.
There are some really pretty prints in store at the moment, I love the leopard print rainbow that has an extra resonance in our current times due to its link to the NHS.
