Embrace Spring & Summer 2024 with Style

From: 29th April 2024

As the temperature rises (soon hopefully…) and flowers bloom, it's time to refresh your wardrobe with the latest trends for spring and summer 2024. This season, fashion is all about embracing vibrant colours, playful patterns, and effortless styles that capture the essence of the sunny days ahead. From breezy dresses to chic accessories, here's your guide to looking fabulous all season long.

Styles to Wear:

Flowy Dresses: Embrace the carefree spirit of spring and summer with flowy dresses in lightweight fabrics like chiffon and cotton. Choose floral prints in pastel shades, or bold bright patterns to make a statement wherever you go.

Crop Tops and High-Waisted Bottoms: All the fashion this year – and if you are young enough or confident enough - show off your summer-ready physique with crop tops paired with high-waisted shorts, skirts, or cargo style trousers. This combination is perfect for casual lunches, coffee with friends or weekend getaways.

Wide-Leg Trousers: Stay comfortable and stylish in wide-leg trousers which are so easy to wear but have an elegant look. Choose from airy linen trousers, colourful palazzos, or denim culottes for a versatile look that transitions effortlessly from day to night.

Bohemian Vibes: Channel your inner hippy goddess with flowy maxi dresses, peasant blouses, and  a touch of fringing. Incorporate crochet details, tassels, and embroidery for a free-spirited feeling that's perfect for music festivals or beachside picnics.

Athleisure Chic: Lift your everyday style with athleisure-inspired pieces like oversized hoodies, bike shorts, and chunky sneakers. Mix and match athletic wear with feminine pieces such as a cute, patterned skirt or shorts for a comfortable and in trend look. You can also add interest to your silhouette by layering an oversized hoodie underneath a denim jacket or an overshirt.  Some strappy sandals complete the look. 

Shoes to Choose: I always choose comfort in my footwear these days so the continuing trend for flat shoes and ballet pumps is perfect. Maybe choose a bright summery colour to compliment your style and outfit. Sandals with toes on show are all the rage this year as are platforms to give you a more edgy look. And of course, flip flops will always we our favourite for lazy days and beaches. Personally, I’m in love with my Ugg slippers which I wear with everything. 

Colours to Embrace

The colour palette for 2024 has something for everyone with a range of both pastel and bold colours. Choose from blazing yellows, tomato reds and electric blues or go for airy blue, tender peach or greyed jade. 

Sunny Yellows: I had to give yellow a mention of its own as it really is the colour of summer. Brighten up your wardrobe with shades of blazing yellow that capture the warmth and energy of the sun. Whether it's a mustard yellow sundress or a lemon-hued blouse, this cheerful colour is sure to lift your spirits.

Pastel Hues: Embrace soft pastel tones for a dreamy and romantic look. These gentle shades evoke a sense of tranquillity and femininity, making them perfect for springtime. 

Bold Brights: Make a statement with bold and vibrant hues – I’m loving the electric blue lemonade and pink cosmos. Whether you're rocking bold wide legged trousers or a statement handbag, don't be afraid to stand out from the crowd with these eye-catching colours.

Earth Tones: Connect with nature by incorporating earthy hues like the oyster mushroom and mocha mousse into your wardrobe. These versatile shades evoke a sense of warmth and sophistication and look great worn together with the pastel or bright colours. 

Accessories to Complete Your Look

Whatever style and colours you choose to wear; accessories add the final finishing touch and can also transform a daytime look into something more special for an evening out. 

Silver Jewellery: For a touch of understated elegance, accessorize your outfits with handmade silver jewellery. Cavendish French has a wide range of designs with something to suit every age or look. From dainty earrings to statement necklaces, these plain silver pieces add a timeless style and are bound to become some of your favourites in the jewellery box. I love our simple silver hoop earrings which go with everything and have hinged backs so you don’t have to worry about losing the butterflies when you are out and about in the sunshine. If you are looking for statement jewellery, our Crashing Waves Necklace is just wonderful – handmade with real attention to detail and great worn with the matching silver bracelet and earrings.

Cubic Zirconia Jewellery: Lift your summer style with the sparkle of our cubic zirconia jewellery, all designed and handmade in sterling silver and set with the best quality AAA* cubic zirconia stones. Choose from clear stones which replicate the look and sparkle of diamonds or choose coloured stones which look just like fine gems. Match with some of the colour trends for the season – for example our statement cocktail ring features a wonderful yellow fire opal cubic zirconia for a warm and sunny glow. Tanzanite blue reminds me of clear blue skies and I love our new Lily pendant which has a sweet floral design perfect for this time of year. You could choose from aquamarine for a cool and calming effect or mint green for a fresh and vibrant look. So many colours to choose from! For those who love a pop of colour, explore our new rainbow coloured stone designs that add a playful touch to your jewellery collection. Who could resist these rainbow huggie earrings?

Straw Hats: Shield yourself from the sun in style with a chic straw hat adorned with colourful ribbons or patterns. Whether you're lounging poolside or strolling through the farmers' market, a straw hat adds a touch of glamour and sophistication to any outfit while keeping you cool and comfortable under the summer sun.

Statement Sunglasses: Complete your summer look with a pair of oversized sunglasses featuring bold colourful frames. Whether you prefer retro-inspired cat-eye shades or modern aviators, sunglasses are the ultimate accessory for adding instant glamour and personality to any look.

With all these styles, colours, and accessories what’s stopping you embracing the spring and summer of 2024 with confidence and flair. Whether you're going to work, in the park with the children or lucky enough to be soaking up the sun at the beach or exploring the city streets, let your personal style shine bright all season long.
