Thanks to Demna Gvasalia, designer at Balenciaga and Vetements, street style photographs have been rather scruffy of late, with hoodies, baseball caps, distressed denims and menswear-inspired tailoring becoming the new fashion uniform. However this spring, sweet styling is making a comeback, as pretty dresses and delicate pastels are set to be the perfect antidote to all that grunge.
The S/S 18 catwalks were awash with vintage florals, sugary shades, ruffled details and silhouettes that exaggerate the waist—all given slight tweaks to feel refreshingly modern. At the top of our new-season wish list are Self-Portrait's floral tea dresses and a wonderfully unpractical pastel bag (preferably this Mansur Gavriel one). The added bonus of pretty looks is that they will also help to pull you out of your cold-weather styling slump—a Berocca for your wardrobe, if you will. Get a head start on this trend with these pretty outfits ideas.
Style Notes: Emili Sindlev's outfit has all the Nana essentials—a sophisticated top-handle tote, jewel-encrusted satin pumps and a skirt in heavy curtain-like florals. She stops the lemon rose Ganni skirt from looking too twee by pairing it with a crisp white shirt with lace cuffs.
Style Notes: You can't get much lovelier than this satin dress with a demure tied-neck collar, which is only £35 from H&M but is sadly now all sold out. Pair with boots and a blazer for a day-appropriate look.
