Spring Style On A Budget

Spring is fast approaching which means new trends and of course a fresh update to your wardrobe.

Three key trends that are sweeping the shops this season are embellishment, long trench coats and ‘skorts’. They have all been seen on the SS14 catwalk, however having them in High Street stores means you can still wear the trend without the hefty designer price tag.

1) TRENCH COATS

For a simpler look, go for a coat with minimalist detail. H&M’s coats give off an effortless look and this particular one is a steal at £24.99.

2) EMBELLISHMENT

Embellishment is the perfect way to stand out in a crown, whether it’s a subtle detailed neckline or a full-on sequined dress. High street favorites such as Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Asos have a great range of embellished pieces – at an affordable price too!

3) SKORTS

New York Fashion Week 2013 - Narciso Rodriguez Catwalk

Narciso Rodriguez showed off his new season ‘Skorts’ in last year’s New York Spring/Summer fashion week. The half-skirt, half-shorts trend has swept through the UK and we have picked the best Summer alternatives at a more affordable price.

We think that this alternative would look perfect with a pair of black ankle boots!

Bag them at Boohoo.com for £12

You can also wear skorts with a knitwear jumper for a cosy spring look.

We think the pastel yellow long sleeve tee goes perfectly with the floral skirts. This outfit is definitely a must have for the summer!
