Your Spring/Summer Wardrobe – Sorted!
We sat down with our fashion ed Linda Conway to find out what's in for spring/summer '15.
If there’s one thing we love (more than red lippie, ice-cream and shopping) it’s a new season. Yep, spring/summer is almost here but if you’re anything like us we’ll bet your wardrobe is still jammers with winter coats and dark colours.
Well, before you stack it all away, we asked our fashion ed Linda Conway what key pieces we can transition into the new season and what fancy new additions we should be making to our Spring/Summer wardrobe.
What’s in for S/S ’15
“’70s is absolute huge this season,” says Linda. “Look out for lots of flared jeans, silk printed blouses, big glasses, suede and fringe.”
As for colours it’s white for the win. “This season is all about head to toe white, but if that’s a little too daunting, a white crochet top is a good option. It’s really fresh and bright.” In other words, perf for summer!
“Denim is set to be big this spring too so you’ll need a great pair of jeans,” says Linda. “Digging out a denim shirt from a few seasons ago is an easy way to get in on the trend.”

And florals are in force too. “It’s set to be a mix of psychedelic and also very soft, oriental placements,” Linda explains. So go bold and bright or flirty and feminine.
As for your bottom half? Culottes and palazzo pants are back. “If you’re just introducing yourself to this trend it’s nice to go for something quite tailored so it feels polished and put together,” suggests Linda.
On your feet gladiator shoes and platform sandals reign supreme, while statement accessories are having a major moment. “The bigger, brighter and more embellished the better!” says Linda.
What to bring forward from winter
“I’m putting it out there, you can bring your blanket scarf forward in to spring/summer,” advises Linda. “Team it with a gorge little dress, a deadly fedora and some cool boots for a relaxed festival vibe.”
“Sheer is still really relevant too.” A white sheer shirt will be bang on trend.
As for colours, hold on to nudes, whites, brights and pale shades because they’re all set to reappear in the spring/summer colour palette.
