Lipsy's top trend predictions
Well, 2009 saw some tres-mazing trends - we loved boyfriend blazers, statement shoulders, jumpsuits, metallics and leather to name but a few, and fortunately these styles aren't going anywhere in 2010 - hoorah! But what can we expect from spring/summer designs? Here are just a few of our top trend predictions.
Florals: From Dior to Ralph Lauren, the spring catwalks are in bloom with pretty floral prints. Ditsy is still in, with cute tea dresses due to be big again this year, but prints will also be bolder than they have been, with abstract floral graphics making a big impact! Florals will also be appearing on trousers, harem pants and jumpsuits - are you brave enough? If you like floral try our Pleated Bodice Dress.
Lace: Taking style inspiration from top designers such as John Galliano, Chloe and Chanel, the Vogue team said in their recent issue that lace shouldn't just be reserved for evening-wear. "Wear casually around the clock. Pretty lacey tees and decorated denim up the ante or daywear", they advised. Look out for subtle details, as well as all-over pieces - lace panels add elegance to any item. If you like lace try our Net Ruffle Dress.
Abstract prints: Bold is beautiful this year, just ask Max Azria, DKNY and Carolina Herrera, who have all featured abstract prints in their 2010 s/s collections. Graphic geometric, futuristic and tropical designs will find themselves adorning dresses, skirts, top and jackets and yes, even trousers and jumpsuits for the more fashion-forward among us. If you're a fan of subtle styles, pair an abstract top with a pastel-coloured skirt or pants. If you like full-on print try our One-Shoulder Grecian dress.
Pastels: Feminine charm and girly romance are back with a vengeance in s/s collections. Peachy pinks, muted violets, mellow oranges and light blue hues will compliment floaty chiffon and soft draped materials. Go for classic sun dresses or channel Grecian goddess style for flirty feminine fun with our Grecian Drape Dress.
