Spring Fashion Wishlist

So here's something a little different for me I hope you guys like this post! I love this time of year when all the spring fashion starts making an appearance in shops, although at the same time I guess it's a little depressing that we can't wear most of it in this country! However we're approaching March which must mean better weather is on the horizon, right? I thought I'd run through all the items I've spotted online which would be perfect for the upcoming season.

Full length dress: This is actually from Primark, I just fell in love with this one! I love that the colour is somewhere in between orange and red, and I love the sheer part at the bottom of the skirt. You could dress this up or down, personally I'd throw on a slouchy knit over the top to turn it a little more casual!

Little Black Dress: Now we all know you can't go wrong with a little black dress, and there's something a bit different about this Topshop one. The shape is really flattering and that dropped waist  is going to be big in spring/summer. I like that this dress is incorporating that trend but you still get an actual waist at the same time!

Red Stripe Print Dress: This Topshop dress is such a different shape to what we're use to and I really like it. I think this could be a really flattering dress on someone who is not totally comfortable with wearing something that would usually accentuate their waist.

Palm Print Matching Top and Skirt: This is another trent which is going to be huge this season, the matching separates. I think this palm print from Primark is so cute. The top and skirt look great together as a statement look, or wear them separately for a more muted but stylish ensemble.

Striped Tunic: Stripes are never going to go out of fashion and this tunic from Topshop is the perfect way to take this trend from winter to spring. Wear this with tights or even skinny jeans and a jacket in the last of these winter weeks and come spring wear with nothing but cute ballet pumps. Okay you might still need tights here in the uk. 

Mint Green Jacket: So pastels look like they're here to stay, and I'm glad. Just by switching your old black jacket to this pastel mint one from Topshop you'll completely freshen up your look in one easy step. Your Welcome. 

Grey Crop Top: So the crop might not be for everyone but hear me out. I wouldn't wear this with low cut jeans and trainers a la Britney, no no no. I'd wear this with a high waisted pencil skirt and a blazer turning a top with could be quite casual into something which is going to make your outfit really stand out and accentuate your waist at the same time! This crop is from Topshop.

Floral Striped Dress: So I remember this style of print coming in a couple of years ago, where the flowers usually roses were layered over stripes. I remember thinking it looked really cheap, like they had just layered two prints to make a new one?! But here Topshop have nailed it, I love this print now! It's so striking and I love the green and the blue together. This may be heading to my basket…

Grey Lace Jumper: I think this is the perfect jumper for taking into Spring. It's still going to keep you warm but the lace panels add an extra summin' summin'. I love the light grey tone of this Warehouse knit and think it would look amazing with some skinny jeans and bright pointed heels!

I hope you liked this fashion related post for a change and hope it's given you some inspiration for the upcoming season. I can't believe it's nearly March already, where is this year going!? I'd love to know your top picks for going from Winter to Spring!
