One of the new trends for Spring Summer 2018 is bold colour and I for one am ready to embrace it. I think many of us need a little brightness in what can feel like a month of post-Christmas blues and grey skies. We’re lucky in our family. My dad and grandad share their birthdays in mid-January and Ian’s is two days before. It’s lovely because it means we have celebrations and get-togethers to look forward to. This is what I wore for the birthday celebrations at my parent’s home over the weekend.
Bold Colour: Floral Jumpsuit With Lace Detail
This floral culotte jumpsuit, gifted to me by Next, seemed the perfect way to add spring’s bold colour, while keeping warm and being weather-appropriate. I added sheer tights and my faux-fur cropped jacket. I got the jacket about five years ago at a Christmas Fair and I absolutely love wearing it. It compliments so many colours and styles.
I love the navy lace insert.
And the detail at the back is so pretty.
And it has pockets!
Bold Colour: Accessories
I accessorised with my fabulous orange Mulberry shoes, which I’ve had for around seven years now and the stunning peridot Swarovski crystal cocktail ring from Lisa, The Sequinist’s jewellery range.
This is exactly the type of outfit I love. Feminine and romantic with a nod to the new season. Not only that, it’s versatile too. This bold colour floral jumpsuit will look equally good with a more casual styling, a denim jacket and trainers or canvas pumps perhaps. And it’ll be perfect with espadrilles or flip flops in warmer weather. I’ve gone from not having any jumpsuits four months ago, to now having three. I wore a summery, sleeveless, cropped-leg jumpsuit with espadrilles when I was in Lanzarote and a full-length jumpsuit with flat strappy shoes when I was in Malaga. I think this trend has become a fashion staple now. Jumpsuits make a lovely alternative to a dress,
Thank you to Next for gifting this jumpsuit; as always, all opinions are totally honest and all content is my own. And thank you to Ian for taking the photographs.
