If you like colour, bold stripes, rainbows and floral patterns, then this is the spring for you. Perhaps after the doom and gloom of the last year it is time to add a pop of colour to our wardrobes to cheer ourselves up.

Lockdown has apparently led to some of us saving a little extra money as holidays, dining out and travel were put on hold. So why not splash a little cash on some new wardrobe pieces ready for when we’re able to go out and about again?

You might not be able to enjoy a real shopping experience just yet, but online browsing can be good fun. Major chains have really upped their game when it comes to internet shopping; some sites offer you a 360-degree virtual fashion show so you can really see the item from every angle, which very is helpful.

More and more are offering free returns as well; to be able to try on in the comfort of your own home and see if it matches with other items you already own can be a luxury.

Stripes
Rainbow stripes are everywhere – from jumpers and lounge wear, to face masks and trainers. Stripes are often thought to be not very flattering, but the latest stripes we see are quite the opposite.

Matalan have a chevron stripe dress, which is a great choice for most figures and only costs £18. Zara as usual comes up trumps with a lovely grey stripe shirt dress for £49.99 – it is very stylish and you could even wear it open as a light weight cover up.

Breton stripes have always been a summer must have; H&M have a great black and white striped jumper for £17.99, which would go well with black or white trousers. White Stuff has a clever navy and cream jumper, which can be turned inside out, giving you two different colours and looks. New Look has great white trainers, reasonably priced at £23.99, with pretty rainbow stripes or a splash of leopard print – they tick all the boxes and are sure to brighten up any outfit.

Ghost
An iconic British designer brand often seen on the Duchess of Cambridge and Carrie Symonds, now you can get the designer look too. Marks & Spencer has cleverly decided to stock a limited range of Ghost exclusively for M&S – sure to be a best seller.

This range has a vintage style, is very feminine and, most importantly, it is timeless. It truly suits any age group and can be dressed up or down. With great floral and unusual prints, it reminds me a little of Liberty’s famed scarves.

Good news for stylish kids – several of the designs have been adapted in ‘mini me’ styles, which are perfect for special occasions. The range has of course been priced accordingly for M&S, so you can expect to pay a bit less than if you were to buy direct from Ghost. With M&S having exclusivity, you also have the added bonus of these items not being all over the high street like so many styles.

Accessories
If you only want to add a slight splash of colour or stripes then look for one of the many face masks offering all different patterns and shades. Necklaces, earrings and even socks are in multiple styles and colours, so no excuse not to add a little rainbow to your look! Who knows, you might just find that elusive pot of gold!
