One of the best things about January is watching the new spring fashion trends appear. They’re as welcome as the first snowdrops or early daffodils.
Obviously, the weather doesn’t keep up with fashion’s expectations – we won’t be wearing summer dresses and sandals any time soon. But, there’s still ample opportunity to start exploring new trends that appear – a collar here, a pretty shoe there.
Right now, spotty prints are catching my eye. I keep spotting them everywhere – on dresses, t-shirts and shirts. When I was in Cambridge last week I picked up three new tops which all embrace this new dotty trend – and weave a bit of spring magic into your winter wardrobe.
First is this laid-back shirt by Primark (£10, in-store only). I love the earthy dark green, and the cheery spots. It’s great under a chunky cardigan – but will be equally good on a warm spring day.
Next is this pretty shirt from H&M (£17.99) with soft, painterly spots. This is a great one to dress up or down – perfect for meetings, or wear with a thick jumper at the weekends.
And I couldn’t resist this t-shirt in a dotty Dalmatian print, also by H&M (£8.99, in-store only). It’s very soft and is another great option to dress up or down.
It also looks very sweet with another of this season’s new trends – ruffles. This ingenious little collar from ASOS (£12) creates the illusion of a ruffly shirt and is a great way to completely transform an outfit.
You may also have noticed I’ve had a fringe cut back in again – another easy peasy way to lift your January look! I’m loving being back in the gang again.
Are you onboard with spots and dots yet? What other new trends are you coveting this spring?
