Affordable alternatives for spring trends

While waiting for my car service on Saturday (3 hours!!) I decided to kill some time by reading a magazine, now I’m not normally one to buy magazines, I think they are a waste of money. But I quite enjoyed flicking through Marie Claire (April 2017 edition) and looking at their suggestions for spring fashion trends.


Marie Claire is predicting that trend for spring/summer is going to be:

  • Metallic
  • Check
  • Asymmetric hem lines and
  • Bold colours and patterns

One thing I did not like, however, was the price tags suggested in these articles: £220 for a top, £70 for a blouse, £79 for a skirt and £590 for a pair of sandals…so I have decided to share some better priced alternatives for those of us who are not millionaires…

Metallic 


Metallic cold shoulder top, £8.99 from select


Metallic jacket, £29.99 from NewLook

Checked


This gorgeous checked dress is only £22 from NewLook


Checked shirt, only £14 from Tesco F&F

Asymmetric Hems


This beautiful dress is only £16 from Forever21


Asymmetric skirt, £18 from Tesco F&F

Bold Colours and Prints

I love these outfit ideas, they are so lovely.

*I have had to remove the links to the clothes as they were no longer available, but I’m sure if you search their sites you can find this years alternatives.
