The bright side of fashion…

In the office we’re feeling there’s a lot to smile about at the moment, with spring in the air making us feel light and happy – and the latest collections looking bright and breezy to match our mood.
Yes girls, it’s (finally) nearly time to banish the winter layers, so take a peek at what’s out now and make sure that, when you open your wardrobe on the first day of spring, you’ll find it easy to ‘dress up’ to be bright and beautiful.
Designers at Debenhams, as usual, are bang on trend. A gorgeous green number by Principles by Ben de Lisi and a vivid aqua style at Butterfly by Mathew Williamson each indicate that there’s certainly an invitation to brighten up for the new season – the former sleek and chic, the latter embellished with sequins for a gorgeous spot of spring sparkle. Over at Collection, the staple shift comes in a luscious lime, sure to make us look lovely.
Over at Coast, we’re encouraged to be pretty in pink with a beautiful, frillingly feminine number. As pictured, this dress will look hot to trot when styled with sexy stilettos and sparkling accessories – don’t overdo it though. Remember, less is more.
As we look to the near future of fashion, we also look to the past, with a stunning debut collection from sixties designer label Ossie Clarke – relaunched for the modern woman. Cobalt blue and vibrant yellow steal the show in our eyes… making us sure that we can’t wait to ‘spring’ into colour.
That, and the idea we may get some sunshine to match the aforementioned bright yellow dress…
