Littlewoods Ireland Launches Spring 2013 Collection!
Making the transition from winter woollies to spring style is made easy with Littlewoods Ireland's stunning new collection, available at the click of a mouse now on http://www.littlewoodsireland.ie.
From season staples to statement pieces, the online department store's new range channels the top trends from international catwalks, bringing you a stunning selection of wearable and affordable on-trend pieces for your wardrobe. Here, we bring you a pick of the must-have trends for the coming season, with some tips on how to make them work for you.
The craze of 'DIY'-style fashion graced this year's spring / summer catwalks with everything from dip-dye fabrics to patchwork and distressed denim, with particularly strong looks shown by Acne. Mixing and matching different colours and textures, this trend is arty and quirky, designed to showcase your more creative side.
Layering is a key characteristic of this trend so jumpers and shirts are a must - unfortunately, we aren't blessed with tropical weather so knitwear is still essential for the Irish spring wardrobe! The South Dip Dye Jumper, €19 with its gradient colour is perfect for layering over the South Denim Shirt, €27 and some ripped denims.
Year on year, the reliable florals are a recurring trend in spring/summer fashion and this year they were a key feature on designer catwalks , such as Prada. We just love them! This season, the trend takes a walk on the dark side as florals are bigger, bolder and darker in 2013r! Classic black is given a burst of spring life with colourful floral print - the South Printed Peplum Dress, €60 is the perfect spring dark piece.
Bright and pastel florals are still a must for the season! For a feminine feel, the pretty pastel Myleene Klass Floral jeans, €47 are a great staple buy. Finally, this To Myleene Klass Dress, €63 with its grassy green hues and woodland-inspired floral prints truly captures the essence of spring.
Marrying two season must-have colours, black and white, cool monochrome is back in the form of 1960s Parisian chic! Showcased on the catwalks from the likes of Moschino and Marc Jacobs, this retro trend takes inspiration from the elegant and chic signature style of Coco Chanel herself. The South Collared Ponte Dress, €27 epitomises understated 1960s Parisian chic, with its classic shift cut and contrasting collar. For a slightly more androgynous look, opt for a shirt and tailored trousers combo like the South Utility Blouse, €27 and South Jacquard Cigarette Trousers, €37 - the polka dot detail adds a feminine touch to the blouse to soften this look.
Elements of last season's trends have also spilled over into spring, particularly the traditionally winter fabric 'tweed' and the trophy jacket. The South Embellished Trophy Jacket, €62 will instantly add some glamour to any outfit and is ideal for wearing day or night.
Clean, bright and light - white embodies everything spring style should be! From blazers and tops to dresses and shorts, this is one of the easiest trends to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. A versatile white blazer is a key piece for the coming season, whether layering over a pretty daytime summer dress or a party dress. The tailored South Jacquard blazer, €47 is a must have piece, with its jacquard patterned fabric adding a touch of opulence to classic white.
spring/summer is the best time to experiment with colour so use the opportunity to your advantage with 'neon'. Stripes, a big contender on this year's catwalks, most notably for Tommy Hilfiger, are an ideal way to incorporate touches of neon into your look. For an on-trend sports chic look, opt for lose fitting pieces like the South Shell Top, €19 or South Striped Vest, €15 to brighten up plain track pants. A 'vision' in neon! Make a bold statement in the Myleene Klass Wrap Dress, €62 or jazz up plain knits with flashes of neon like the South Two Tone Ribbed Jumper, €35.
Quirky retro prints are everywhere this season, from charming character prints to abstract geometrics. Mixing and matching prints is an effortless way to update your wardrobe and make a real fashion statement. The South Galloping Horses Tie Front Blouse, €32 is a perfect summer piece and looks great worn with high waisted denims. Anyone for tea? Myleene Klass favours tea prints in her new SS13 collection, with the cute Myleene Klass Teapot Jumper, €39 and Myleene Klass Teapot Print Dress, €62.
