I'm a huge fan of JD Willliams, as their mixture of contemporary and classic styles really speak to my vintage repro loving heart. Their take on seasonal trends aimed at the slightly older market fit right in with my day to day aesthetic, although there are plenty of fashion forward options straight from the catwalk on show too. In fact their SS17 game is so strong, I thought I'd share a few staples which I need in my wardrobe immediately!
The key trends for SS17 include florals, frills and stripes, with 90s grunge undertones still going strong. Here are a few of my favourites which will have you ready for sunshine fun in no time!
Florals? Check! Stripes? Check! Frills? Check! This Frill Sleeve Midi Dress is a triple threat in trend ticking boxes, whilst also being the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe. Team with strappy sandals and an oversized floppy hat for some boho vibes, or toughen it up with a biker jacket and ankle boots for a more grungy, 90s feel.
The beautiful stripe pleated lace on this Lace High Neck Dress offers an alternative take on one of this seasons hottest trends. It's also the perfect style if like me, you're and not quite ready to let go of AW's gothic Victoriana styles. The dress is black lace over white lining with frill finished sleeves and a cute shirred collar detail.
Moving back to florals, this Lace Bomber Jacket is a pretty way to keep the chill at bay. Great for seasonal layering, this sporty style is given a delicate edge thanks to the beautiful lace style detailing. It's a great item for throwing on over jeans for some casual, off duty cool.
I've been a huge fan of the last few collections designed by Lorraine Kelly, with her biker mac and ankle boots being firm favourites in my wardrobe. This pretty Fit & Flare Dress might have to be added to it, as I am in love with the gorgeous floral print set against a high neck, contrast top.
