I've got a bit behind on my blogging this week, with a hectic but exciting work schedule! I'll be back before the weekend and look forward to catching up on all of your posts. In the meantime, I'm delighted to welcome Catherine today, to share the latest trends for Jackets this Spring. I'm loving the striped number below :)
It may seem hard to believe but warmer weather is on the way! Spring marks the return of the sunshine but it can still be quite chilly, making it the perfect time to top off your outfits with this year’s must have jackets. Here are some of the highlights, as seen on the catwalks and on your favourite celebs.Hot pink
It seems that some of the world’s hottest designers were inspired by the springtime cherry blossom, as 2013′s biggest spring trend is set to be hot pink jackets. Phillip Lim, Chado Ralph Rucci, and Oscar de la Renta all sent their models down the runway in a range of smart and casual hot pink blazers.
Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Chloe set the tone at Paris Fashion Week when they dressed their catwalk models in cropped jackets. While some models were showing off a bit of toned tummy, if you don’t have a size 0 figure, don’t despair – simply wear the cropped jacket over a long top for an edgy, on trend look.
Denim jackets have been edging their way back into the fashion consciousness for years, and 2013 is their time to shine. They look great over florals, as the finishing touch to a punky outfit with a black skirt and band t-shirt, or with cowboy boots and a beige dress for a wild west look. You can find a denim jacket at very.co.uk to match whatever look you want to go for.
Blazers are also back in a big way for Spring 2013, with black blazers in particular really coming into their own. Award winning actress Anne Hathaway sported one as she stood up for women’s rights recently at a One Billion Rising event, while stunning supermodel Miranda Kerr opted for a black blazer for a trip to a nail salon. The black blazer is clearly versatile, and the fashion world has certainly taken note.
