Buying Tips for your Spring Summer Wardrobe

Buying Tips for your Spring Summer Wardrobe

11th April 2017

New shapes, unrivalled quality, and amazing prints; our design team have been working exceptionally hard to bring you our exciting new Spring / Summer 2017 collection. And to help you build this season’s capsule wardrobe, we sat down with our Head of Buying, Hayley Rock, to identify the key trends for SS17.

What do you feel are the key trends we should look out for in the SS17 collections?

During fashion week I’m glued to every online site picking up on all of the trends from the new collections, whilst at the same time gathering inspiration for our future collections. Spring/Summer 2017 is all about Nautical prints, and softer fuchsia colour ways, mixed with a selection of textures including lace, broderie and crochet. We’ve adopted these trends and created a range that perfectly fits our customer profile, whilst looking great with our new season leathers.

Can you pick five key pieces for our SS17 capsule wardrobe and why?

Obviously I’d suggest a few more than 5, but here’s a start!

1 – The Kim Leather Biker Jacket

Every wardrobe should contain a biker jacket! The Kim leather biker jacket is one of those pieces everyone instantly loves. Kim can smarten up an outfit, or worn over your shoulders for a great casual look.

2 – The Angelina Suede Jacket

Suede is going to be huge this season, especially as we get into the warmer months! The stunning, rich tan colour way of our Angelina suede jacket stands completely out from the crowd and is an instant injection of style to any outfit and will easily transition from season to season.

3 – Olivia Striped Tunic

A great piece for work, travel or play, the Olivia tunic features the Nautical Stripes that we know are a huge trend for the season. Whether you team this with tights, or without in the warmer months, it will always keep you looking smart and stylish.

4 – Vievianne

Lace seems to have been around forever; the fashion world has reinvented the classic style in countless ways! Our Vievianne top will add a classic, yet feminine feel to any look, taking you from daytime to evening with ease.

5 – Gemma Blouse

Another piece encapsulating the nautical trend this season is the Gemma Blouse. It’s also a new flattering shape for us at Lakeland. We hope you all love this piece just as much as we do!

With the British springtime weather being as unpredictable as ever, what should a spring wardrobe offer?

Each season has its must have essentials. Having a solid foundation which is built around a selection of basic items that can be worn all year around such as our Naomi Biker Jacket, Billie stripe top and the Rossa jeans will guarantee that you always have something to wear. As you reassess your wardrobe for Spring its advisable to remember how unpredictable the Great British weather can be, layers are the perfect way to transition your look for whatever weather is thrown your way.

And what about those all important accessories?

With the main focus always being on the clothes during fashion weeks, accessories take a slight back seat but this season Its all in the detail this Spring! Accessories are a great way to embraces this season’s biggest looks from leather satchels to printed scarves. Our selection of accessories this Spring will add the final touch to complete your outfit such as our pure silk scarves infused with abstract prints.
