As previously highlighted, Spring 2016 launched in January this year. Those first drops of newness have since been marked down in addition to leftover stock from AU15.

Temperatures will remain pretty chill for the next couple months, so a light transitional piece would be ideal. Also, with global warming concerns reaching an all time Oscar high, this summer is set to be a scorcher. So pick yourself up a few key pieces from wherever you can to top up those staples which get you through each season with style and ease.

Look at this steal from Outlet as ASOS. Boohoo Cream knitted dress with high collar.

Here is another from Topman. Rogues of London, Black faux fur collar coat.

Fashion Sees Red

Red, also known as Fiesta is one of the big colours for Spring 16, as if you didn’t already know.
Whether you are a minor red hair accessory kind of girl. The guy that wears the red power tie or even the person who enjoys the sneaky peak of a bright red sock peakibooing under trousers, this Spring 2016 is your season.
With the likes of Armani popping accents of red all over the Spring collection, you’ll be a fool to ignore it. Red has never been my colour, but back in November I entered a Stylist competition – stage one was to showcase our interpretation of red.
Here was my entry. Unfortunately I didn’t win, but I still love my entry. The cardigan is a retro vintage piece from Greenwich. The beading detail is incredible, pure lambswool and lined inside to prevent any wool intolerance reactions occurring.  I love it. I’m also wearing my shoe clips from my website Cheeky Poppins, a touch of fur.

Here are some pieces from Armani showcasing possibly the most powerful colour in the spectrum. So says the power tie philosophy.
Here is a dress on Pretaportobello by Liquorish At Marketplace. Taking the colour block Fiesta to an extreme but why not? Otherwise you can tone it down with accessories – all found on the site.

Whatever your feelings on the colour, there ain’t no party like a Fiesta.  So jump on board.
