Red hot for spring and summer, here’s six essential womenswear trends to buy now.
Dotty and spotty
A perennial print story but one that continues to drive shoppers dotty – the polka dot is back. Here we have classic simple styles or modern painterly versions.
Fashion’s Queen Middleton continues to influence summer dresses, particularly with demure sleeve detailing and nipped-in waists. Update your stock with these prim and proper examples.
Short and playful
Fast becoming a summer staple, the short all-in-one playsuit is back again. Colour blocked or boldly patterned, catch those festival and holiday shoppers with these playful styles.
Say hello to hi-lo
First spotted on the spring 12 catwalks, hi-lo styles are mixing up hemlines, whether as directional dramatic shapes or subtle versions on skirts, dresses and even tops.
The sugary sweet shades seen all over the spring 12 catwalks will stick around for high summer, with soft candy pinks, pale lemons and dusty blues standing out.
Splits, slits and revealing panels offer a breezy summery update, ranging from dramatic backless looks through to subtle shoulder cut-outs.
