Spring Fashion – Goodbye heavy coats, hats and scarves!

Spring is here and your local fashion retailers have what you need to freshen up your wardrobe. We spoke with some of them to find out what they’re carrying this season.

lots of pastels, ruffles and florals; in contrast, the retro look also continues with fun, graphic prints and bold colours.

“For spring, blue is a definite theme, brighter than the classic navy blue, it lends itself to 12 months of use, but with more of a spring/summer like feel. Casual shirts in recent seasons have been dominated by checks, and while there is still a lot of that, there are also a variety of different prints for this spring that will freshen up a guy’s casual wardrobe really nicely.”

“In lingerie, the spring trends vary from pretty pastel floral to some vibrant pinks and corals. Bralettes are gaining popularity more and more – those are wireless lacy bras for the smaller chested. Although,
I do carry a style by Freya that can comfortably be worn by someone that has been sized in a G-cup.”
