Spring Summer Trend Report
When Spring/Summer fashion hits the stores, most of us are knee-deep in our winter warmers - desperate to find some "hygge".
Now this is when the real fashionistas buy their itty-bitty summer things. Why? Well, partly because they are slightly mad and never seem to feel the cold, and partly because they want to rock the new trends hot off the catwalk.
Fear not though if you are late to the party, as we have rounded up our 5 favourite trends from the Spring/Summer 17 shows and will show you how to work them on your feet with our Salt-Water Sandals. Let's go.
Mix and Match
This is one for the braver amongst us.
No doubt inspired by the legend that is Alessandro Michele at Gucci - who has single-handedly made everyday eccentricity today's norm. This is all about wearing clashing prints, colour, textures or even a bit of patchwork - AKA Style Eclecticism. As seen here at Marc Jacobs. And here we can help with our Original Mash Up in Tropical from £70.
Get those sunglasses out!
We are talking highly saturated, punchy, big, bold, bright colours here. From sunflower yellow and bubblegum pink, to cobalt blue and nail varnish red - go big on this trend. Seen here at Celine. And with our new Candy Red Originals you can make sure your summer feet are up to speed with this trend from £59.50.
My cherry amour - as seen at Altuzarra you need to be making this Spring/Summer trend one of your five a day.
And for the cherry on the top of a great outfit - OK, so not at the top, but you get the gist, are these gorgeous Classics in Cherry from £59.50.
Take a trip back to the 80's. Giant shoulders, draped in molten looking golds and silvers or even more exciting - in dark blues and purples. Shimmering in lame and glimmering in sequins. Glitzy and glamorous. Done beautifully by Saint Laurent's new creative director, Anthony Vaccarello.
You can rock this look in the newest addition to the Salt-Water family - our Salt-Water Slide in Rose Gold from £52.
Not a Spring/Summer season passes without a nod to the floral trend.
This season however it has gone very shouty and is to be worn from top to toe! From neon oversized carnations at Balenciaga to giant retro blooms not unlike those you would have seen framing your grandparents windows as curtains back in the day, at Miuccia Prada's show.
Above is an image from the Balenciaga show, and below is how you can wear this look at floor level with our Original Floral Salt-Water from £59.50. And of course you will be needing a pair for your little princess - from £42.
So now the sun is out, and those winter warmers are finally packed away for the moths to feast on over winter - make this Spring/Summer a stylish one on your feet with Salt-Water Sandals.
