Spring/Summer Trends 2018

Spring is finally here, and it is time to change-up our wardrobe! Whether you are going to buy all new outfits or just work with what you have, hopefully this post will help guide you through the trends hitting us this Spring and Summer!

Lets dive straight into the trends for Spring Summer 2018!!


pastelsTom Ford, Michael Kors & Valentino

When I think of summer I think of light and bright! Pastels take a more elegant approach than bright and bold colours and it is definitely a trend I’m looking forward to! If you follow trends closely you will have noticed pastels slowly creeping into all seasons. A/W 17-18, I noticed a small amount of pastels being mixed into other trends, Emilia Wickstead and Balenciaga both mixed a small amount of pastel into their collections, which I though worked nicely!

How To Style

All items above are from River Island. I chose these pastel purple cropped trousers, paired them with a simple print t-shirt and styled it up with these amazing white mule boots, finishing off the look with a small cross body bag. This outfit is a perfect everyday look, which can also be turned into an evening look, by replacing the bag with a clutch and adding a pair of tassel earrings!


slipsAlexander Wang, Diane Von Furstenberg &  Ralph Lauren

Slips are a perfect choice for spring/summer! We have seen slips being styled very differently in the past few years, showing us that they are not just for the evening time but can be worn as casual attire! The styling I loved was the slip with a t-shit as it gave a very 90s feel and this style is sticking around! Buying a slip is almost like an investment, you can make many looks with it and wear it night and day!

How To Style


I wanted to give this look a real 90s vibe, so I went with this baby pink wrap dress. I know it’s not exactly a slip dress, but it is close enough. I paired the dress with a white long sleeve t-shirt and a light wash denim jacket. To finish off the look I chose these off white slip on trainers and a light pink fluffy bag! All these items are from Topshop.

Bold & Bright

I would have been surprised if bright colours didn’t pop up in the S/S trends! I am happy they did, as I usually run away from colours, but I am trying to introduce some colour for the coming months! The designers really went for it this season and I loved all of them, especially the above 3!

This styling is so different for me as it is definitely something I wouldn’t see on myself, but after putting it together, I kind of love it! I know it will be getting much warmer now, and a heavy coat like the one I chose maybe too heavy, but in Ireland you can never be too prepared! I love this colour palette and it is definitely for someone who likes to go outside the box! What do you think? would you wear it?

Pencil Skirts

There is nothing like a good pencil skirt! I was quite excited to see these skirts coming back in, even though they barely left! But the fact they are a main trend means, we will see so many different styles and takes on the original!

This outfit is by far my favourite of this post! I am living for this open front denim skirt and the triple colour jumper, all from River Island! As you can see I snuck in the white mules again, and to be honest I think they complete this outfit!! This outfit is definitely going into to wish list!


transparentDior, Emilia Wickstead & Y Project

Transparent isn’t an unusual trend to see for summer, and I think designers done an amazing job with this trend. My favourite being Emilia Wickstead, the black contrasting with the sheer white is just stunning!

How To Style


Bringing transparent into ready to wear might be a little difficult, as it needs to be suitable. Styling this look was fun, as it reminded me of outfits I wore when I was younger (referring to the wide leg jeans). I chose a cropped transparent poka dot top and this gorgeous black lace bralette to wear under it. I kept the look quite casual by pairing it with white lace up trainers and a black belt with silver detail. All items can be found at Topshop

Denim, Denim & More Denim

denimThierry Mugler, Adam Selman & Tom Ford

Denim is that one thing that will never go out of fashion, but this year they decided to multiply it! Many designers opted for the denim on denim look and to be honest I love it! Some designers like Tom Ford went for a light weight denim, which is probably a good idea considering denim can be quite warm, and wearing a lot of it isn’t something one would want on a hot day!

How To Style


This outfit is quite mismatch, but there is something I just LOVE about it! I went for these awkward cut wide leg light washed denim jeans, a light weight denim camisole and a bright red denim jacket! To finish off the outfit I chose nude pink gumsole trainers, a silver metallic bag and silver oval sunglasses. It is feeling quite 90s!
