Recently I was invited to the Westfield Merry Hill ‘We Are Fashion’ SS14 preview.
With the sun making an appearance lately, it has definitely got me excited for spring/summer fashion. I am totally ready to ditch my knits!
The preview was a great way of finding out this season’s new trends. I also LOVED the accessories presentation with the lovely Westfield Merry Hill bloggers Daisy & Khyati. I actually went and bought a contour kit after this!
So what should we be looking out for when shopping?
White is the new black this season. I really, really want to try this trend but I am such a mucky pup :(
Whilst I contemplate going all white on the night, I explored the next major trend of the season: brights. Yep, it’s go bright or go home this season. Even I- the girl who always goes back to black couldn’t wait to inject a burst of colour to my wardrobe.
I went along to the fashion takeover weekend a few weeks ago which was a great way of getting some inspiration on the current trends and where to find them.
You can’t escape bright colours in stores at the moment. From River Island to Warehouse, the shops are scattered with bright yellows, reds, oranges, blues and greens.
The key is finding the right colour to suit your skin-tone. Pale colours don’t really do anything for me but I’m quite lucky that a lot of bright colours do suit me. This might surprise a lot of people, but I love the colour bright pink. You will often see it on my lips or nails but rarely in my wardrobe- well it is in my Indian wardrobe! Another colour I am loving this season is Orange.
You know how I said I wanted to try the new ‘white’ trend this season? Well luckily, monochrome is still in and mixing brights with monochrome is a great way of tying in the two trends.
And as Daisy & Khyati said in their presentation, for those not feeling brave you can inject trends using accessories. I really wanted something yellow but it’s a colour i’m unsure about. So instead I have bought a yellow nail varnish- will see how I get on with that!
I’m really looking forward to going shopping and picking up some colourful pieces over the next few weeks, just in time for my holiday.
The future is bright and my so will my Wardrobe in a few weeks!
What’s your favourite SS14 trend?
