Enough of Winter…Lets Talk Spring/Summer ’13!

So I for one am well and truly over Winter.

I know, I know it’s only January & snow could arrive at any minute or even in April but I think it’s high time we started looking forward to a time when the sun will shine.

Yes this is the year when the UK will receive that long-awaited and well deserved summer, I’m convinced and ever the optimist!

Every season I research the catwalks, magazines, shop around the world and use any other resources I can get my hot little hands on to make sure I know which trends will be key and hitting the high street in the coming months.

I thought I’d share my findings with you in posts over the next few weeks.

With no further ado lets get started.

Kicking off is one of my favourite parts of the summer season…PRINT.

It’s all over the catwalk for S/S ’13…so here are my top 4 print trends for the summer season.

Florals – Florals of all shapes and sizes, from watercolour to photographic, all over to placement. If you’re a print lady then florals are a must.

This one is my particular favourite…

Stripes – Stripe are big news for Summer. In every guise from Breton to wide, mono to multi-coloured a stripe is a staple for your summer wardrobe.

Next up…

Dip Dye– This hasn’t been around for a while and with bright against pale it looks really fresh and modern again, something I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for.

And last but not least…

Colour Blocking – This is a trend that has been around for a while but is still very present for S/S ’13. Although not technically a print I felt it should have a place in this post.

Which type of print is your favourite?

On the diet front…It is still happening!

My Fitness Pal is still my best friend but I haven’t told it that I managed to scoff a Terrys Chocolate Orange the other day (a moment of weakness)!

Next time Key Trends. Have a good weekend.

  1. Oh my, I’d love a Terry’s Chocolate Orange to scoff right now! You’ve made me hungry :). My favourite print is the stripe and I’m also looking forward to a scorchio summer – it WILL happen if we say it enough! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Avril x

    • Hi Avril, Glad you share my optimism. Not too sure that summer stripes are going to keep us warm with the snow thats apparently about to fall though!! Probably should start to add a few layers of fat to keep warm…any excuse to trough more chocolate!! xx
