What’s not to love about spring? More daylight, the smell of summer in the air, beautiful flowers everywhere, plus all those adorable baby animals… To make it even better, we’re here to show you some fabulous new fashion trends that are promising to be big this season. Read on to discover our top picks and start getting excited for the hottest seasonal looks yet.

1. Smart shorts

If you’ve always been too afraid to try a pair of tailored shorts, this spring is your chance. Worn well, suit shorts can look sexy, stylish and sophisticated all at once – so be brave and take the plunge! If you want to avoid the look becoming too masculine, steer clear of trainers or brogues in favour of floaty sandals or heels, and for a matchy-matchy look, pair with a blazer in the same pattern.

Let the shorts do the talking with this slit side pair:

2. The versatile trench coat

Despite there being a little more sunshine in spring, the temperature can still be pretty chilly. Make sure you’re prepared for an unexpected cold snap with a fashionable trench coat, one of this season’s most versatile garments. A trench coat is much like a dependable friend – it can see you through any type of weather, and will go with most outfit options. Wear yours over a chunky knit and skinnies, or a floaty vintage frock and trainers.

Denim is also big this spring, so why not kill two trends with one stone in this fab trench coat:

3. Whimsical white dresses

Indulge your wedding fantasies this spring with another top trend – the white dress. Although this style oozes simplicity, there are lots of different shapes and styles out there, including options with lace, bows and floral decorations. Simply pair with sandals, a cardigan and a flower crown for the ultimate spring look. Then all you need is a beautiful meadow or some cherry blossom as a backdrop for your own personal spring photoshoot.

Dreamy spring days are on the horizon in this tiered option:

4. Club Tropicana

If you start dreaming of sunny summer holidays in spring, this trend is the one for you. Tropical print is making a splash this spring, bringing dull outfits to life with bold pops of colour. Bring the sunshine in a tropical print dress, skirt or blouse and watch as you brighten everyone’s day. If tropical isn’t for you, there are tonnes of other on-trend patterns this season, including florals, and pinstripes.

5. Waistcoats

Waistcoats aren’t just for the fellas, and women can easily make this traditionally masculine garment into a feminine spring outfit. Match a tailored blazer with a floaty white blouse and jeans, or team with a white tee, skinny jeans and heels for a runway-worthy look.

6. Cute cut-outs

Show your mischievous side with our final spring trend, the cut-out. Dresses, tops, jumpsuits, skirts and more are all sorting minimalist cut-outs this season, so choose your favourite style for a unique, unexpected look. We love the mystique of a shoulder cut-out, while trousers with cut-out detailing are an easy way to make a spring statement.
