Making New Year’s resolutions is an activity that fills even the most optimistic among us with dread. Unless it’s a resolution to upgrade our wardrobe, in which case, willpower is our middle name. Here, six spring fashion trends to snap up ASAP.

Sequins

To say sequins and sparkles will be a big deal this spring is an understatement. In every fashion capital, glitter prevailed. Style yours with a sweatshirt to give them daytime longevity.

Pastels

Whether lilac, pink, lemon or duck egg blue, expect to see an array of fashion’s prettiest shades next season.

Checks

It looks as if heritage checks are going nowhere for the season ahead. Voluminous coats with traditional appeal, floaty feminine styles to bright and summer-ready.

Bold colour

Spring will be very bright indeed if the catwalks are anything to go by. From New York to Paris, the shows were awash with vibrant, bold shades to suit every colouring.

Sheer

Transparency is a headlining trend – sheer coats, dresses and skirts revealed cycling shorts and full briefs. Basically, it’s all about what lies beneath next season. Consider it a more demure take on the ubiquitous naked dress.

Ruffles

Ruffles added a feminine air yet again this season, with top fashion names incorporating them in their respective shows.
