New Look this season have pushed above and beyond, when I first looked around I was actual a little lost for words. Their really focusing the brand into more statement pieces, with texture and colour that will please everyone. What I adore with New Look is that even if you have next to no budget for clothing, you can always find an on trend piece's that won't break the bank.
This season New Look have designed some amazing pieces, so you can get those spring summer trends spot on. I think most of you must know the trends by now, but here is a bit about them:
Pleasantville: This collection is the perfect pick for the girly girls. The colour palette for the collection is a mix of sugary pastels, and sorbet tones blended with muted neutrals to add a touch of road trip. Peplum dresses continue to work their magic and sculpt the optimum silhouette, whilst the 7/8th pant epitomises that relaxed 50s feel. It's a vintage feel collection with a modern spin, with water colour florals, pops of neon and 50's statement jewellery it has a first lady vibe.
Eastern Trail: AKA my pick of their trends, just has everything. Paisley prints are powerful worn head to toe, whilst the season's essential white shirt is knotted and teamed with scarf printed maxi skirts and embellished sandals. Summer necklaces are traced with the most delicate of beading and vest tops embellished and enhanced. This trend has a festival vibe, and backpacks feature heavily. I love the sequin skirts which will take you from day to night, with a simple sandal to heel switch. Ear cuffs are introduced with colourful beading and feathers and hand chains are a season must have.
Pagan Cowgirl: Colours are subtle, soft and warm. Dusky pinks, sage greens and burnished browns are all used with a richness and depth adding that homestead feel. Table cloth checks make this trend one easy to wear, for a relaxed day look. Embroidered patterns are complimented by chambrays and distressed denim. The ditsy print is a western style essential and adds Prairie chic to floor length skirts and cropped tops.
This year New Look had a bloggers lounge, which was the perfect place to style current pieces, blog, tweet and take a load off our feet. I love print and colour so I picked this sequin embellished skirt (£59.99) and teamed it with killed monochrome wedges and a cool neon printed top. I'm all about print and colour, this season more is more.
I need that clutch, and possible those trainers 'BANG'
Trying out the Blipp app
Of course monochrome featured in the collections too, with pop art shoes and accessorises. I think I made a thousand notes to self when I saw their woman crying clutch, it's such a fab bag to give any outfit a quirky touch.
