Renew your wardrobe with these 2016 trends to make you stand out from the crowd this summer: try out a pop of colour or daring prints and dare to be bold. Our favourite high-street stores have pulled out all the stops to keep us looking fabulous this summer season.


This years collection sees a mix of texture, colour and sophistication. We love the gorgeous tribal prints which can transport us to a hot tropical location. These dresses are perfect for holiday vacations and for the long awaited sunshine soon to make an appearance in the UK.

Marks and Spencer

Marks and Spencer have kept it sophisticated with their Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The design director Queralt Ferrer explained how: “This season we looked a lot at street style and how women dress. It’s much more about an attitude.” This goal seems to have been accomplished successfully with the advent of this new collection. In particular M&S have excelled in their florals using pretty pastel tones- perfect for those of us who are afraid of bold colour.

Trousers £83, trainers £99

Floral trousers (T593240) £83, coat £199, top £99, suede lace up trainers (T028021A) £99

“Ditch black and freshen up your look with these beautiful floral-print trousers”
