Ever heard your mother say ‘I used to wear clothes just like that when I was your age’ or lust after her clothing in old photo’s? I think it’s true what they say, if you keep your clothes long enough they come back into fashion, that’s my excuse for having so many anyway.
I was having a look at the new trends for spring/summer and thought I could recreate a lot if these from clothes already in my wardrobe. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to buy anything new though, who has that willpower!
I have two tops which immediately sprung to mind. This bargainous Primark top purchased last summer.
I also have this little giraffe print top, nowhere near as lovely as that dress but has the same feel to it. I got this in Old Navy when I was in NYC about 5years ago!
Next up, high shine metallics. These are thrown in beside either neutral or big bright colours. I love this Jonathan Saunders dress. Diane Von Furtensberg also had some gorgeous bright dresses with sheen panels.
I have this dress which I also got in NYC years ago. It’s from Armani but I got it on Black Friday with a very large discount. I’m not actually sure it’s supposed to be worn as a dress but that’s how I always wear it. It has copper and grey stripes so fits perfectly with this season. This is me in Cyprus last year, I had to cut the man out of the photo.
Fluorescent is also a big look this summer. Lots if designers had it on the catwalk and Gap has a whole range with neon accents. Osman had loads, unfortunately not featured on the website but you can see it in this article I have these wonderful shoes! They are ridiculously high but I love them. They are from ASOS and are about 3years old!
The 90’s are supposed to be making a comeback, at least it’s not the 80’s again! A big trend is baggy jeans and high waisted trousers. I have both, but I love these jeans. I bought these 8years ago in Miss Sixty. They cost me a fortune but were worth it because they are still in tact. Big turn-ups also very 90’s
You can’t have missed perhaps the biggest trend this season, monochrome! I have already featured this twice, once with new clothing once with old. These are my old jeans, purchased in the sale last summer.
Lastly there’s pencil skirts. I have hundreds given i wear them for work. Roland Mouret and Burberry Prorsum had some stunning red ones that i need in my life. This one of mine I bought a few years ago in Joy. There used to be a Joy on Queen St but I think you can only get in online now. I don’t wear this that often as its not a work skirt but maybe break it out this season.
