High Street Edit: Spring/Summer 2012

So I received my acceptance for London Fashion Week which I found extremely exciting as this will be the first time I have attended. The next month will mostly now consist of me stressing over what I'm going to wear each day while I'm down in London.
I thought I would take a look at what the High Street has to offer for Spring/Summer - also I am going to focus solely on those that have shops on the high street and not just online stores. I will mainly be wearing high street or vintage at Fashion Week, as I don't really have the money or the contacts for any designer threads.

Pale pastels are all over the high street which I love. I think all pastels looks can look so good if they are done right. This suit from Topshop would look perfect in Spring paired with some chunky heels - you can dress this up or down. Also the pieces also work separately with other pieces. Pair this up with a clutch bag and you have the perfect look.

Clashing prints are not something for for the faint hearted - but this look can be so effective. These floral trousers from Warehouse offer the perfect way to try out this trend. You don't always need to match it up with a clashing print but this striped blouse does the trick. The lady like court shoe is back with a bang - you can pick these up in so many stores and they can be inexpensive but still look chic. I love a good oversized clutch and this American Apparel one comes in a range of colours and sizes.

The Lady-like trend is going to be big this Spring/Summer - pair this with neon and you have to trends in one. I love this skirt from River Island - it reminds me of the Christopher Kane lace collection. I really like the how transitional this look is - pairing it with a fine knit will work for when the weather isn't great (which is often in the UK) and when it picks up a sheer shirt will look just as good. To give this a little more edge you can wear some chunky bangles - I liked this cuff from Urban Outfitters.

  9. The pink short suit is amazing. H&M have a great blue version at the moment which looks like it is inspired by Chanel.
    Have a fab time!
