Eight must-have key trends for the new season

It can be hard staying up-to-date when fashion trends move so fast, so here are eight key looks for the season that you can't go wrong with. Some are classics that never date, while others you may recognise as blasts from the past. I recommend clearing out your wardrobe to see if you have any items that can be dusted off and reworked to fit in with the seasons hot looks.

With summer arriving, we have eight great trends guaranteed to last you through the season.

1. Tribal Prints

Mix and match patterns to create an exotic look, or liven up a plain outfit with tribal accessories.

2. Rock chic

This look is all about leather. The staple biker jacket is a great way to toughen up a feminine dress, or to complete a rock chic look with jeans and a t-shirt.

3. oan style

If you have to wear corporate clothing to work, then this clean, timeless style is for you. Give this masculine look a feminine edge with sweet accessories.

4. Maxi hemlines

For a casual take on the maxi dress, throw on a whit shirt and a pair of flats. Alternatively add heels and jewelry for an evening look.

5. Boyfriend

This look consists of three key items – boyfriend blazer, boyfriend T-shirt and boyfriend jeans. Rather than digging through the wardrobes of any men in the house, boyfriend styles cut for a woman’s shape are more flattering.

6. Blush & nude

Freshen up your look with blush pale pinks and neutral tones, which will replace black items over the summer.

7. Stripes

A classic that never goes out of style, update your striped pieces with some sparkly accessories. The key is to keep it simple – pair a striped top with plain bottoms, or vice versa.

8. Lacy layers

Lace doesn’t have to look Victorian – update this look instantly with ankle boots or a jacket. Lace socks or gloves also add a sweet touch to an outfit.
