House & Home

With the promise of warmer weather on the horizon my mind starts turning to the spring / summer season and new emerging trends. 

People are wanting to shop more sustainably and wanting more from their clothing. Hence I believe it’s now more about a wardrobe refresh come spring / summer, rather than a seasonal overhaul.

Key trend considerations for Spring summer 2024 include utility dressing. With the return of cargo trousers along with boiler suits, utility jackets and varying shades of khaki. So if you’ve held on to your cargo trousers of the 90’s it’s time to dig them out again.

Vibrant and cherry reds are key colours. Whether wearing it top to toe, or as a bright t-shirt with jeans. There are many ways to add this to your look through clothing, accessories and even make up.

Get your knitting needles and Crochet hook out as crochet & craft is back again. Whether used in your more traditional jumper and cardigan styles or updated as a dress.

Work wear reimagined. Re-visit your wardrobe to look for past office items. A great white shirt, high waisted trousers, a blazer to go with jeans, or the key item of the season a trench coat. Make these items everyday, teaming them with jeans or a simple t-shirt, with the shoe of the moment a Mary Jane.

Shimmering metallics and liquid gold may lend itself more to evening wear but is another key colour for spring/ summer. Dig out those pieces usually reserved just for Christmas or evenings and bring them into your everyday wardrobe.

Some of these pieces you may already have in your wardrobe and they just need reimagining or styling to bring them into the new season.
