Fashion is something that is forever changing and updating as time goes on, with new trends emerging and designers experiment with different looks. However, once you’ve found your signature style, you can have fun switching it up and adding new elements to your wardrobe. From quirky accessories to stylish garments, fashion is a fast-paced industry that means you can always get your hands on the latest trends.

The high street is renowned for taking inspiration from the catwalk and making it readily available, and wearable. With that in mind, SS18 is finally creeping up on us; the season of feel good fashion. It’s the time of year where we can start being more creative again, saying goodbye to our oversized knitwear and thick coats.

There are certain high street styles that seem to sweep the nation and appearing on everyone’s Instagram page. So, with spring and summer only around the corner, it’s time to take a look at some of the must-have styles for this season.

Pastel hues
Pastel shades are nothing new when it comes to clothing, but they’re just as effective every time they come back into fashion. The Victoria Beckham show featured parma violet hues, while other catwalks played with shades reminiscent of lemon and pistachio. Perfect for the warmer weather, these colours have made their way into high street style effortlessly.

From pant suits to dresses adorned with frills, pastel colours from across the rainbow are easy to wear and can be incorporated easily into your collection.

Denim twist
Denim is timeless and has been reinvented over the years; each decade put its own twist on denim. This season, say hello to the return of darker coloured denim. This time, it has a more polished and tailored finish that can look as smart or as casual as you like.

Whether it’s in the form of your favourite pair of jeans, or a light denim jacket for the spring weather, dark blue is the go-to shade. Watch out for it slowly appearing on the rails of your usual fashion stores and grab it while you can!

Return of the trench coat
The months of spring and summer will no doubt still require outerwear of some sort; after all, the British weather often includes rain and cold spells even in the middle of June. However, you can pack away your parka and dump the duffel; instead, the spotlight is on the trench coat.

A wardrobe staple, the trench coat has had an update for SS18. With embroidered elements, distressed and raw edges and extra features added, it’s the perfect piece to protect you from the elements through spring. A very wearable piece of outerwear, it’s something you can’t really go wrong with!

Bright colours
You might have started filling your wardrobe with pastel shades, but the trends for this season have also seen an injection of vibrant, eye-catching colours too. Oozing confidence, paint box hues have taken inspiration from Pantone’s latest colour release.

Red and purple worn together creates a strong look, while head-to-toe yellow makes a bold statement. Even the simplest of clothes can be made exciting with a pop of colour. Don’t be afraid to mix your colours and stand out from the crowd.
