I had a little scan through trends for SS10 and picked out some of my favourites - nudes, parisian chic, polkadots and err... nautical! Everything is under £40.
Trend #1 - Nudes
It's quite nice to see some more delicate colours in the shops this year - especially when combined with lovely lacey items that we had last year! I'm really loving all of the 'flapper' inspired fringing as well. I thought these two items would be perfect pieces - the Topshop dress could work as both day wear and evening wear, and I'd feel so luxurious clad in the fringed ASOS crop top (although admittedly, I would have to tuck it into a skirt - not daring enough for stomach flashing!).
Trend #2 - Polkadots
I'm quite partial to the odd polkadot here and there - especially if they're in navy and white! What could be more perfect for SS10 than a polkadot mac/trench, or a frilly umbrella for the rain showers that we'll inevitably have? The delicate polkadot blouse is another personal favourite - perfect over jeans or tucked into a skirt.
Trend # 3 - Parisian Chic
Being a French language student, this is probably one of my favourite trends. I've always been a fan of anything with a splash of that French 'je ne sais quoi' and I think these items definitely fit the bill. I've had my eye on this bicycle necklace for a while now - it'd look perfect teamed with the Eiffel tower playsuit! And of course, a tan coloured military dress with a slight nod to the classic trench. Olala.
Trend #4 - Nautical
It seems that the nautical trend just won't go away, and I'm not complaining. My absolute favourite nautical item (in fact, my favourite item of all time) is the 'breton' top, as made famous by Coco Chanel herself. They go with everything, look simple yet chic, and are extremely comfortable. Here are two versions of the classic, one from Topshop and one from New Look.
I'll be back very soon with another Wardrobe Re-fashion, but in the mean-time... what's your favourite SS10 trend?
