How to work the 3 biggest summer trends

A few weeks ago, I went to a little event from the ladies from Miss Selfridge at John Lewis Cardiff, on how to work the biggest summer trends using key pieces from their latest range. For 2014, Miss Selfridge have taken a different approach to design, making sure we fill our wardrobes with more versatile clothes which look just as great in the office as they do at dinner.

Vibrant neons

Neon has been hanging on for a good while now, but this season it is less about the shocking yellow and more about working warmer, more vibrant shades. Your best bet is to go for a blank palette of colours, working bold blocks with stand out accessories - like those blue shoes in the photos above!

Modern monochrome


The monochrome range at Miss Selfridge offers more of an edgy take on this trend than other black and white styling has so far. But it doesn't all need to be about the grunge look - just add some pretty florals in to the mix to soften, or try out a strong edge with a tailored skort.

Pretty pastels

These delectable clothes make for real show off glamour. The embellished dresses are perfect for proms and spring weddings, and won't break the bank either! Pastels tend to verge on the super girly but garments like the blurred floral shirt (above and below middle) prove that you don't have to wear a big splash of lilac or mint to rock a pretty neutral.
