Fashion. It’s a tricky business, isn’t it? Just as you’re beginning to get to grips with the season’s hot trends and colours it’s on to the next one, and once again you’re left to wade through magazines, shops and webpages for hours on-end just to stay ahead of the curve.
Well this season, we’ve done all the legwork for you. We’ve identified 4 key trends that you need to be aware of this Spring/Summer AND we’ve chosen some beautiful frames to match – giving you all the time in the world to browse at will and use your brainpower for more worthy pursuits such as chess or, you know, shoe shopping. Perfect.
From Chanel to Marc Jacobs, the catwalks this season are alive with tonal hues of khaki, brown and tortoiseshell. A versatile trend that looks good on anyone, try this pair from Marc Jacobs for the authentic fresh-off-the-catwalk vibe, or opt for this Boss Orange offering for a more purse-friendly style update.
Forget last year’s mod styling and hoop skirts, this summer it’s all about that 70s groove. From Chloé to Alberta Ferretti, suede-effect skirts and and faded florals are the name of the fashion game this year; for eyewear, look no further than a pair of rounded frames. Particularly flattering on those with a smaller head and rounded features, which are normally overwhelmed by more traditional blocky styles – check out these from Chloé or these from Marc Jacobs for a brilliantly bohemian look. If disco is more your style, look no further: Ray-Ban’s got your back.
Trends don’t come any prettier than this year’s dainty white hues. Soft silhouettes that look as good on the street as they do on the Giorgio Armani catwalk, this trend is all about soft textures and layering layering layering. Lace, chiffon and everything in between, perfectly topped off with these white offerings from fashion powerhouses Prada, Chloé and Versace. Pair with tan accessories and the ice cream of your choosing for summer-day perfection.
This is the fun bit. Shake off the winter greys and inject a bit of colour into your life with the crazy pop art trend. With graphic prints and bold colours aplenty at Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gautier and Proenza Schouler, it’s now perfectly acceptable to don clashing block colours and mix-and-match your bright neons on an everyday basis. Finally. For the true designer experience, these frames by Marc Jacobs (or this graphic offering) will do you right all season long. But these frames by Savannah are the real stars of the show – available in a range of colours and costing less than £10 a pop, you can’t say no really, can you?
