P-dba9a008-e3ca-4b02-905e-77d764c37974

The classic kids' trends are hitting the high street for spring and summer this year. Nautical themes run through almost every collection, alongside fun prints, ruffles and a little boho thrown in for good measure.

Clash in on spring's hot hues

What colour clothing are you wearing right now? If the answer is black, blue or grey, you're in good company, as 23% of Brits are most likely to wear monochrome on a daily basis.

Earring the changes…

Economic uncertainty has been linked to the rise and fall of hemlines ever since the Great Depression, and now Brexit has been blamed for this season's biggest jewellery trend.

Get carried away…

With more and more collections landing in stores every week, now's the time to start excitedly compiling those new season fashion wish lists - and on the accessories front, the spring/summer trends offer some seriously desirable bags.

Lights, camera, fashion!

Thanks to that little mix-up with a couple of envelopes at the Oscars, awards season 2017 is destined to be remembered for all the wrong reasons (well, one very awkward reason).

Fresh from the front row...

The second stop on the global fashion month train brought the style set to London, a five-day extravaganza of designers revealing their autumn/winter collections - clothes that'll also heavily influence what the high street produces later this year.

In with the new

Sometimes, the spring collections offer us a fashion overhaul; a tectonic shift in sartorial landscape.

Time to knit pick

P-44abae33-be61-4675-b526-bf0968b862c6

Hate to break it to you, but even though the shops are pushing spring trends already, we've still got a hefty whack of dreary weather to get through.

Just a little something...

P-409beb17-d7c8-4230-acff-36a95931872b

Most of the time, underwear shopping is a bit of a chore, but in the run up to February 14 it's a lot more fun, as we let loose and ignore the practical in favour of the playful.

Get shorty

P-ef26341d-412b-4d44-b042-b70440acbf52

Once the barometer rises, so too do hemlines. But forget skirts and dresses that come with the risk of a Marilyn Monroe-style flash - shorts are 'the' practical solution for summer leg exposure.

Escape in style

P-fcb6de86-e75d-42ec-a8a6-2496b7121602

Whether you're globetrotting or weekending in Whitstable, a well-packed suitcase can make or break your holiday style.

Score a style hat trick

The sporting calendar is virtually impossible to avoid this summer. Admit defeat and channel your favourite tournament with this season's sports luxe trend.

Best dressed guest

Forget the bikini season panic. There's nothing like a summer event dress code to put you in a fashion spin.

Shades of summer

P-bb35b0ec-fd59-425f-a6a2-3459df748099

It's not officially summer until you've got a shiny new pair of sunglasses on your head.

Dapper dads ahoy!

P-cc73b064-e1af-459b-b5b4-0b6897e1d396

When it comes to fashion, fathers can be stuck in their wardrobe ways: unlikely to be swayed by the latest catwalk trends and nonplussed by celebrity style icons.

Cosset cossie confidence

Nothing says 'holiday' like a new bikini or swimsuit - or three. With so much swimwear variety, it's difficult to select just one piece for your suitcase.

If stripes feel too straight and you're not dotty about spots, checks are the prints you need to, er, check out this season.

Painted ladies

P-4628f80c-4739-472d-b025-7a97c9ef89aa

Join the art movement this summer for a new take on prints. No design classes or paint brushes necessary - the high street has come up with its own wearable works of art.

True blue style

P-9c50db69-170d-4b90-979c-561cff88166c

Forget pastels, bypass black and ignore neutrals. In case you were in any doubt about the colour of the season, it's cobalt blue.
