With Spring just round the corner, you may be itching to start pulling out your warmer weather wardrobe. If you’re wondering what will be taking the highstreets by storm this Spring, then take a look at our round up of some of the hot trends that you’ll be sure to find in stores this month. Whether you are ahead of the trends or can’t really get on-board, we always suggest to take this as a source of inspiration but embrace your personal style and wear whatever makes you feel happy and positive!

 

1. Crochet

Long considered a defining characteristic of the 70s or the doilies that graced your grandmother’s sideboard, crochet has seen a massive revival and has returned in a fresh, new way. There is no doubt that the intricate crochet patterns seen on the runways is both skillful and highly creative. Worn in modern cuts, the crochet look screams sun and warmth. Lets hope the weather gets the memo!

2. Bermuda Shorts

Bermuda shorts are back and this time in a chic, business casual way. These shorts were all over the runways and are set to explode on to our streets especially when the warm weather amps up. If you like this look but worry about the length shortening your legs, consider wearing with heels to elongate the leg or a strappy sandal to draw the eye. One thing for sure is this is one of the more comfortable trends to have appeared this season!

3. Tiers

For women who want drama in their wardrobes, this is the perfect trend. Tiered dresses and skirts will be big for Spring and Summer and add a feminine and bold feel to the wearer. You can go all out with bold tiers or wear more subtle ones paired with plimsolls for a more casual look.

4. Whimsical white

White is a perennial favourite for the summer months and this year is no exception. This Spring it is all about keeping the white dress simple yet having a bold element to the look. White dresses were also seen with distinct accessories to really make the look individual and unique. We love white for summers so we’ll definitely be sporting this trend!

L100C LISTEN: NAO

By November 9, 2018 Editor's Picks, INSPIRATION

Are you looking for new music releases or a different kind of sound?

NAO BlogpostArtboard 2


As the days grow shorter, keep winter blues at bay with some fresh tracks from NAO. After the release of her new single “Make It Out Alive”the British artist has officially announced her new album Saturn. Released on October 26 and featuring masterpieces like “Make It Out Alive” and “Another Lifetime”, the album drifts through a mindset in flux, largely focusing on heartbreak and the regenerative bliss that comes after.

But why name it Saturn?  

“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth. So by the time you’re around 29, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.” – NAO.

The East Londoner has created the kind of tracks that will have you singing to your mirror and her honest exploration of love, lust, and hardship will keep you awake on those longer nights.
