On-Trend Spring-Summer Pieces You Can Wear Right Now

Let's be honest – as much as we like to study runway trends and predict which ones will be embraced on the street style scene, we're fully aware that some of them wouldn't fly in the real world. But there are trends each season that are much easier to wear than others, and we found them for you for the Spring-Summer 2018 season. Not only are these top trends accessible, they're also going to be everywhere. Here's a selection of perfect-for-spring ideas that you can immediately put into your wardrobe rotation...

Pastels

Pastels are a lovely, soft option for warmer temperatures, and are totally au courant.

Whether powder pink, blush, pale lemon or duck egg blue, we've seen array of fashion's most delicate shades this season. But as Victoria Beckham (whose lilac suit is pictured below) said "delicacy can be strong"; this spring trend is a step away from the sickly sweet tones of the past. Check out how it's being done this season, and see how we do it below:

The ultimate femme shirt to see you from desk to drinks – don’t forget a dash of red lippy and diamond earrings!

Glitz... And lots of it!

Sequins and sparkles are currently MASSIVE – and they're about to get even bigger and more blinding! In every fashion capital, glitter has prevailed this spring, starting with Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs right through to Dior, and Chanel. Style yours with a neutral shirt to give your glitz a more grounded look and daytime longevity.

Bold Colour

This summer will be very bright indeed if the spring catwalks are anything to go by. From New York to Paris, the shows have been awash with vibrant, bold shades to suit every colouring.

We have options. Victoria is a sapphire evening blouse; its tiered ruffles elegantly cascade down the front, and the blouson-elasticated cuffs finish with a delicate frill. Elasticated loop mother of pearl buttons are fuss free to fasten, and this beauty is not see through so you won't have to worry about any unsightly slip-ups! [caption id="attachment_2811" align="aligncenter" width="409"]The Shirt Company The Shirt Company[/caption] Shop Victoria in sapphire here. Alternatively, our sleeveless trapeze top Cynthia in hot pink is the perfect elevated essential, with frill trimmed details and a roomy fit. The contrasting high front hemline curves and lengthens at the back for a casual look. Designed with wearability in mind this trapeze shape blouse is loose fitting and the ideal breezy choice for summer. Dress it up with patent ankle boots or keep it low-key with flats.

Checks

It looks as if heritage checks are going nowhere anytime soon. Balenciaga's runway checks came via oversized coats as seen here, while Victoria Beckham's had a more traditional appeal.

Pair some high-quality, simple tailoring (our Colleen shirt does a perfect job for this!) with a menswear-inspired blazer (sunglasses optional, but recommended for added cool-factor!).

Ruffles

Ruffles added a feminine air yet again this season, with Alexander McQueen, Givenchy and Valentino all incorporating them in their respective shows. Ruffles are already everywhere on the high-street too, adorning many off-the-shoulder necklines; covering hemlines, sleeves, and even pant legs... Watch this space: this trend is here to stay.
