I don’t know about you, but this winter has felt like the longest on record, so boy are we excited to be edging ever closer to spring. It’s been almost two years since we first went into lockdown, so we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate the feel-good fashions that will be brightening up our wardrobes this season. After all, if the last 24 months have shown us anything, it’s that what we wear can really have have an impact on how we feel.
So really, it came as no surprise that when I asked our editorial team which trends they’re impatient to wear for the new season, they came back with colour, prints and polish. We’ve got Editor in Chief Hannah Almassi, who has wholeheartedly embraced the bright-colour trend—surely the most obvious manifestation of our joy at spring arriving? Or Emma Spedding’s penchant for a statement print via the likes of Ahluwalia and Chloé.
At the other end of the spectrum, you have the return of polished dressing (so long, trackies), with Emily Dawes championing the low-key-luxury aesthetic by way of time-tested yet elevated staples from Totême, The Row and Arket. Meanwhile, as a jacket fanatic, I have picked the oversized-blazer trend, which I plan on belting (top tip for creating a dramatic silhouette) and using to give my spring denim a high-fashion update. Scroll down to see and shop the trends we’re getting behind this season.
