Trends: New Look Brights & Prints

June 27, 2013
Nothing says summer quite like a pop of colour!  This season, the hottest trends are dominated by all things bright and beautiful; vibrant colour and a jungle of prints.  From electric neons to lollipop pinks, aztec patterns to comic book chic, there’s a shade, shape and style to suit every body.

New Look is one of my favourite high street fashion stores, having shopped there since my teens in the 90’s.  They always bring out fantastic catwalk interpretations at affordable prices.  New Look has whet my appetite for the buzzing brights trend with so many pieces I could easily see myself wearing.  I never used to be one for wearing skirts but in the last couple of years I’ve really started enjoying wearing them, both short and floor skimming.  New Look has an amazing range of body con and maxi skirts this year.  I also love wearing colour, not only do I find it mood lifting it looks pretty cool too. 

These are my favourite pieces at New Look right now:
1.  Red Pink & Blue Aztec Cap Sleeve Mini Dress,  £12.99
2.  Black & Fuchsia Retro Sunglasses, £4.99
3.  Parisian White Comic Character Crop Top, £9.99
4.  Friis & Co Pink Locure Bag, £49.99
5.  Turquoise Stud Strap Sandals, £15.99
6.  Turquoise Shirred Waist Maxi Skirt, £14.99
7.  Neon Green Cut Out Back Texture Skater Dress, £19.99
8.  Neon Abstract Gladiator Sandals, £27.99
New Look asked me if I’d like what I loved most from their current collections and I chose the Pleated Voile Maxi Skirt which I got in a 12.  
The Deep Pink maxi skirt is a delicious raspberry colour.  I absolutely love it; the colour’s gorgeous and the fabric is slinky and cool which is perfect when the weather’s humid.  
I’m wearing the skirt here with my little Keane t skirt from their 2009 Perfect Symmetry tour.  It says “Did You Want To Be An Icon?”  Slogan tees:  there’s another trend you can rock this summer!
Is colour your thing?  What do you think about the aztec print sensation?
