4 New Ways to Wear Spring's New Trends

--Guest Post By Isabella Franklin

With spring rapidly approaching, now could be the perfect time to update your wardrobe for the upcoming season. Luckily, there are a lot of new styles out there that will help you look great throughout the warmer months, so what’s popular? And what should you watch out for?

Sporty Dresses
If you’ve got a slender or muscular physique, you might have considered a breast enlargement operation to increase your curves – but surgery is not your only option. The right attire can flatter your figure in ways you never thought possible, so take a peek at the sporty dresses available during the next few months. They’re bang on trend and are great for those with a straight frame as they hug the chest and flick out at the waist, giving you a more feminine shape.

This look has been popular on the catwalk and has been introduced into the DKNY and Victoria Beckham spring range.

Fluorescent Fashion
It has been a long, dark winter, but things look set to get considerably brighter due to fluorescent fashion trends. Brightly-coloured pencil skirts, eye-catching dresses and larger than life shirts will soon line the shelves, so spice up your style with a host of different shades.

If you’re into designer wear, Oscar de la Renta, Osman, Simone Rocha and House of Holland are all supporting this style and there are sure to be plenty of similar designs on the high street. To wear this look properly, team appropriate colours together and make sure you don’t stop traffic by clashing.

Black and White
If you’re not brave enough to wear all white this season (as seen by Jil Sander, Prabal Gurung and Alexander Wang), throw some black into the mix as well. These two colours look great together and are making a comeback this season.

Horizontal stripes, small and large cheques, polka dot, zigzags and blocks shades are proving extremely popular, so find something that suits you and wear it with confidence – be it a stylish jacket or a pair of jeans. Both Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs have released fabulous designs or you could combine clothes you already have together in a unique way.

Celebrate the '60s
Are you a fan of retro fashion designs? If so, you’re sure to love this season’s 1960s attire. Flower power has returned and short hemlines, checkerboard jackets and glamorous shift dresses are sure to excite fashion-conscious females everywhere. As well as the clothes, satchels, oversized glasses and headscarves have taken the catwalks by storm, so prepare to wind back the clock and embrace the years gone by! Think Hairspray and you’re half-way there!

These days, many people feel they need nose surgery, a bout of liposuction or a tummy tuck to look good, but a simple makeover and a few stylish outfits can make all the difference – so get shopping.
