Inject your wardrobe with colour this spring
From botanical prints through crayon colours and ice-cream hues to trenches and trimmings, we spied trends to suit all tastes on the catwalks this season. In this exclusive video, we showcase five stunning, runway-inspired looks, with all items available at Eden Shopping Centre – after all, what better time to refresh your wardrobe and express the many shades of you than spring?
Whether a dainty flower pattern or a bold, tropical print, it just wouldn’t be spring without a few fresh floral items in our wardrobes. Clash this asymmetric, ruffled jungle-print skirt with a vibrant wraparound blouse, then don a pair of heeled pink sandals or fringed orange flats. Add some statement earrings, and a pop of sunshine yellow in the shape of this cute bag, and you’ve got yourself a look that’s sure to turn heads.
A playful palette made a splash on the catwalks this season. Vivid hues are just made for fun – start with some vibrant fuchsia trousers with double-zip detail, add a ruffle-shouldered orange blouse and then a wide mustard belt to create a stylish silhouette. And because the devil’s always in the detail, complete your look with a multicoloured triple-pouch bag, yellow tassel earrings and scallop-edged blue heels.
Spring is officially in the air and gone are the days of dressing as if for an Antarctic expedition every time you leave the house. Enter the trusty transitional trench coat. A versatile wardrobe staple, it will keep on giving year after year. Throw on over a corset-top dress in hound’s-tooth-check and accessorise with quirky sunglasses, a bold bag and low heels for an outfit exuding everyday elegance.
Scoop up this button-detail satin blouse in a deliciously feminine colour reminiscent of strawberry sorbet. Team with these pleated-top trousers in rose to create a romantic, whimsical look that will take you seamlessly from day into night. Slip on some pretty lilac loafers and you’re good to go.
Sometimes you want to make a statement, and this striking embellished dress in dusty pink from River Island does just that. Create a confident, eye-catching look by layering it over a ruffle-sleeved sequinned blouse, wearing it with mojito-green shoe-boots and sporting a pearl-pink fringed clutch bag. On-trend red tassel earrings and matching lips make for the perfect finishing touch.
