Here is Italy the weather has started to get hotter and there are sure signs that Spring is on its way. This makes me excited about the arrival of sunshine and longer days and also because it means it is time to welcome in the trends of SS15. This year spring has seen a huge throwback to the 70’s with florals, flares, hippie dresses and retro looks and I am loving this.
As a Styling Assistant I need to make sure I am looking on trend but also need to consider my budget. I find the best way to do this is to buy key pieces from the season and use them to update my existing wardrobe. If like me you are the same, then look below for Part 1 of my SS15 trends breakdown found on the high street for a steal! Enjoy!
