Yes! We are finally in March which means it is officially Spring (woohoo!) The sunshine has slowly started to come out a bit more and I can feel moods already lifting. When the seasons change it means one main thing- wardrobe change! This Spring/Summer is filled with some gorgeous new trends that contain some gorgeous key must have pieces.
The 80s called, they want their shoulder pads back. Our customers have noticed this trend is making a comeback this year and have admitted secretly loving it. Do not be scared off by this as these shoulder pads do not have to be as bold as you might be thinking. The catwalks have been filled with pieces that are boxy and sharp all the way to much softer and more relaxed pieces. The idea is to sharpen up an outfit as much or as little as you wish. The boldness within the shoulders gives a real striking and powerful look that can make heads turn.
Ruffles has to be my ultimate favourite trend this season as they are quite versatile and you can wear them as bold or as subtle as you like, both equally feminine. Top designers such as Phillip Lim, Mulberry and Alexander McQueen have been showcasing their ruffle pieces all over the catwalks recently and has been a real hit with their audience. From tailored trews to pretty day dresses, there is a ruffled item for everyone. Here are a few of my favourite pieces we have in at Match at the moment.
This trend is a continuation from AW16 and will definitely be again, massive in SS17. Any form of a detailed sleeve is a yes- ruffles, cropped, flutes, oversized, embroidered. Anything goes! What I especially love about detailing in the sleeve is it gives an outfit a beautiful effortless boho vibe to it. Channel your inner boho goddess and go get yourself a detailed sleeve!
