Although it may have started snowing, the fashion calender waits for no man and by it’s calculations it’s time to start packing away your autumn winter wardrobe as spring summer collections have landed.
Dreaming of sunshine and heat, Goss.ie got to check out Littlewoods Ireland’s new SS16 collection and it’s filled with a host of 70s vibes.
Channelling music icons such as Stevie Nick and Janice Joplin, the retailers 70s update goes for more of a sophisticated edge this season.
Fringe benefits: This leather Kimono from Rochelle Humes’ range is available for €66 | LITTLEWOODS
Texture is still key to the trend with fringe being at the forefront while luxe fabrics like leather and suede continue to take over the SS16 collection.
The maxi dress is back and a staple this season with cold shoulder detail and crochet – something we could see Saoirse Ronan wearing.
Colours such as white and pale grey are really shining through Littlewoods collection with many pieces channelling the shade in fabrics such as broderie anglaise, fringing and tassel trims.
70s: This lace maxi dress is bang on trend with it’s 70s vibes in this season’s white for €47 | LITTLEWOODS
To be on point with the chic trend simply pick up a lace blouse with crochet inserts or trumpet sleeves details – think Daniella Moyles and Electric Picnic vibes.
Meanwhile, florals are making a comeback this season with darker palettes such as moody blacks and midnight blues offsetting the bright prints.
At Goss HQ we love the bardot style dress this season, this Littlewoods offering with lace panels gives a quirky twist to the classic piece.
Summer staple: The printed bardot dress is a staple piece this summer costing €93 | LITTLEWOODS
Perfect for a wedding or at the races, this would be great matched with a simple pair of nude courts and delicate accessories.
However, if dresses aren’t your thing, channel your inner Roz Purcell at the Gossies and rock a classic suit with subdued floral print for the perfect style edge this season.
All looks are available on LittlewoodIreland.ie now.
