Spring Fashion Trend: Micropleats

Tiny, fine pleats are a micro-trend from the high streets to high end designers, adding interesting texture to tops, skirts, jackets and trousers.  Pleats, especially the micro-pleat, have been all over the runway this season.

It adds modern shape to any silhouette, while also remaining unstructured, so the pieces will drape flatteringly on any body.  A slinky top is perfect for date night. The crippled shimmering material gives a glam look to your outfit without the need for jewellery.

Skirt length is important with the micro pleat trend. Choose a style below the knee or a little longer, and you’ll achieve a timeless look.

Micro pleats have also made it onto trousers and culottes this season.  Pair with a shirt and pointed toe pumps for the office, or trainers and a crew neck at the weekend. These pants are more versatile than you think.

The key to rocking the micro pleat this season is choosing a light material with teeny tiny pleats.  So to get you on the right track, check out the street style inspiration, so you can wear the trend with confidence.

Colour Combo to try: Grey & Peach

Peach is such a fabulous summer colour. It's light, feminine and always looks fresh.  The pastel-hued peach gives off a soft and feminine vibe and when combined with the neutral, yet sturdy grey, creates outfits that are both super chic and perfectly balanced.

If you are uncertain about wearing peach, then keep it away from your face. Slip into a pair of peach denim jeans,  throw a grey silk blazer over a white top and you are ready to go!
Or keep your fashion simple with a dress that shows off both colours.

Whether you're colour blocking or adding accents here and there, peach and grey is a gorgeous blend.  Need some outfit ideas before you try out this colour combination? Scroll on down to check out four outfits featuring peach and grey:

Fashion trend: The slip dress is back


A fashionable feature of the 90’s, the slip dress is making an effortless impression as this season’s must-have item.  Alexander Wang, Burberry and Paco Rabanne have all featured this classic dress in their latest collections.  

It can be quite daunting trying to wear a dress which quite frankly looks like lingerie.  Here are some fabulous tips so that you can wear the slip dress with a new found confidence.

Keep it cool, relaxed and simple. Go for a basic black slip dress with spaghetti straps and style it with strappy sandals.

There are hundreds of ways to wear a slip dress but one of the simplest and most classic ways to be styled daytime, you can wear turtleneck pullovers long sleeve shirts, blouses or basic shirts underneath your slip dress.

Take your dress to dinner by wearing with an open cardigan. I really like the contrast and the mix of materials.  For maximum effect add a pop of colour.  Rock this elegant look with a pair of this seasons sexy mules.

Length is key. Too short looks too come-to-bed; midi or floor-length looks more modern. Try wearing one under a skirt or another dress, so you can see a bit of lace poking out underneath the hem. Or just opt for a silk camisole worn under a biker jacket with jeans.
