The 4 Spring Trends That Will Instantly Lift Your Mood

Sponsor Content Created With THE OUTNET

At Who What Wear UK, we think the most exciting trend ahead for spring 2018 is the use of colour. It's all about punchy combinations this year—whether it's uplifting paintbox brights or a confection of pastels, the key is to wear several colours at once. The new-in section of THE OUTNET.COM is filled with the colourful pieces you're about to see all over your Instagram feed, from wedding-ready lilac dresses to the perfect pink trouser suit. If you want to brighten up your wardrobe, this is the perfect place to start. Keep scrolling to see our guide to how to wear spring's headlining trends—and shop our edit of the brightest, happiest pieces we could find.

1. Statement Suits


If you have looked at any street style pictures from 2018 so far, you know that one of the key new buys is a double-breasted trouser suit in a sugary pastel shade. And we found the absolutely perfect pink suit by Roksanda over at THE OUTNET. When it comes to styling this new power suit, it pays to add more pastel colours to the mix with your accessories. The goal is to resemble an ice cream sundae.

2. Mixing Pastels


When it comes to colours for S/S 18, it's all about sickly sweet pastels, with lemons, lilacs, pinks, pistachios and soft blues layered together. Lilac has long been considered a tricky colour to wear, but it has emerged as the key colour for the season and is more flattering than you might think. Opt for a muted shade à la this tiered Philosophy dress, which can be worn with white trainers at the weekend and then with a pale pink handbag and statement earrings come wedding season.

3. Power Pumps


When it comes to accessories for S/S 18, one of the main stories is the return of stiletto pumps. This high heel style was, until recently, considered a little dated. However, it is no longer a boring, safe option, having been updated with bright colours and standout fabrics such as on these satin green Gianvito Rossi pumps. This spring, it's all about having fun with colour combinations, so we paired these green stilettos with the brightest yellow trousers we could find on THE OUTNET.

4. Bold Colour Combinations


You'll have got the message by now that this spring is about being adventurous with colour, and THE OUTNET is your go-to place for paintbox brights. Abandon all the usual colour rules and opt for unlikely pairings, such as styling this red Valentino dress with pink pumps and a yellow clutch.
