If you're anything like the team and I, you might have already dug your favourite sun dress out the back of the wardrobe or perhaps checked if your shorts still fit!
After two summers of lockdown we are ready to get out and about. Jet off on holiday, party at weddings that can finally happen and enjoy many get togethers with our loved ones. It seems fitting then, that the fashion trends for Spring / Summer 2022 mirror these positive vibes.
Scroll down to see wearable looks based on this seasons fashion trends.
#1 COLOUR - AND LOTS OF IT
Think brights, pastels, neons - you name it! A key fashion trend this summer will be colour pops and monochrome colour blocking. An easy take on this trend would be to invest in a colourful sweater that you can layer up with on beach walks and evenings. To embrace the colour column trend, ease yourself in with a coloured jean or trousers. Pair with a tee in a similar shade and you are winning.

#2 LOW KEY LUXE
At the opposite end of the spectrum, there is a surge in neutral tones and luxe wardrobe staples. Invest in quality wardrobe staples and you won't regret it. A fantastic quality white t-shirt looks timeless with a blue denim jean or beige wide leg trousers.
#3 ANYTHING BUT SKINNY
OK, we're being controversial - trending or not, we love a Skinny jean! It is, however, nice to mix it up with some more flattering fits. A wide-leg trouser is so versatile! Wear with a neutral blouse for work and you will still look pub ready for those cheeky post-work drinks. Style with a simple tee and trainers for an effortlessly cool and comfortable mild weather outfit.
The 90s trend is still going strong, so too then is the straight leg and relaxed fit jean. If you don't fancy going all out with a crop top, opt for a slim fit, square neck vest for a similar look.
#4 FEMININE SILHOUETTES & FLORALS
As soon as the sun makes an arrival, we'll be heading for floaty shapes, soft hues, floral prints and feminine details. Why not add some floaty prints to your favourite jeans with a patterned kimono? Sheer blouses are making a come back this season. Style with a straight legged jean, a pair of espadrilles and you have the perfect outfit for lunch with the girls.
