At about the time I press 'publish post' on my blog posts from Isobel Kershaw at the NHJ Style Consultancy, I get lots of my blog followers ask: "When's the next one?" They are beginning to attract a huge following and are a 'must read' for all wedding guests hoping to wow with all the latest trends.
Spring is no exception, and I am pleased to introduce to you Isobel's thoughts for this season. Here is what she has to say...
It's the end of February and I can feel Spring in the air. I have already spotted some blossom which is always a good sign and that means the busy wedding season is just about to kick off.
If you have been invited to a wedding this season, let me inspire you with some On-trend styles which will not only ensure you look fab for that celebration, but will also be versatile to use throughout the season.
Prints always come to life in spring and just like your garden, you will also see bloom prints in the shops. So don’t shy away from them, embrace them whatever shape of height you are as, there are prints to suit everyone.
How about this very pretty Oasis dress aptly named 'Kew floral shift dress'. At £65, it ticks all the boxes. Add your own skinny belt and finish off with a cute knit cardi or edgy jacket which will take you from day to dinner.
We have seen the 'Nude' trend before; and, if you are a little shy of colour, nudes may be the answer.
You may need to either add a vibrant tone to your accessories with this style or ensure your make-up is colourful. Either way, a spray tan may also be beneficial to avoid the pasty pallor look.
Add this LK Bennett Selina Dusk clutch for an utterly sophisticated look.
The catwalks have shown the most colourful collections in many years which hopefully reflects the positivity of the current climate. So ditch the black, navy and grey, and jump into colour – you can’t avoid it this season!
This colourful dress from FCUK does everything for you. Its V neck ensures it suits most body shapes, its sleeves mean no need for a cover-up, and the bead detail on the front accessories the dress for you! Fabulous!
That 70s show
I love the 70s look. It’s so much fun and feels so carefree. If the wedding you are going to is not so formal, experiment with the new 70s vibe styles coming into the shops this season. With wide-legged trousers and even wider brimmed hats, it can still be pulled off elegantly if put together in the right way.
This stylish BIBA print top is a great piece to add to the wardrobe and makes a perfect outfit for a spring summer wedding when dressed up with a white flared trouser such as these beautiful ones from Milly.
