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
