With a nod to nautical, this trend captures the mood of a sunny day at the seaside. Bright blues mix with navy, white and pops of aqua recreating the colours of the sky and sea. Team stripes or countryside florals with laid-back denim and crisp white cottons to get the look. A straw hat, shades and printed scarf are the perfect finishing touches. Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
Denim shorts are a summer essential and celebs love them for beach breaks and festivals. Try our new relaxed boyfriend fit with turn-up hems – they look great with a little white tee. If you like your shorts a little longer go for embroidered knee-length styles and team with wedges to lengthen those legs.
Look out for pretty broderie anglaise or embroidery detailing – it gives this look a fabulously feminine edge that will carry your spring wardrobe right through to summer. Team a knee-length white skirt with a navy striped tee and blazer for a smarter take on the trend, or layer a fine knit over a simple white dress for effortless weekend style.
