I have a rotation of clothes for Spring and Summer and Autumn and Winter. Twice a year, I’ll have a complete reorganisation; the things I love that are no longer seasonally appropriate are cleaned and stored in vacuum packs in the attic until the next year. Things that I’ve not worn (and I make a mental note), no longer suit me, I no longer like or are broken, are recycled appropriately (either they’re fixed, sold, taken to a clothing bank or charity shop). Although the majority of the things I buy are perfectly acceptable to wear year in year out, I do like to make a few key purchases to keep on trend- of course still in keeping with my personality. I am willing to spend a little more on the key pieces but when it comes to the trends, these, I find, can be budget friendly.

We pick out our favourite trends for the Spring/Summer 17 season and find the key purchases at purse friendly prices- all under £30:


All different variations of these colours are the colours for the next two seasons. Find the colour tone that suits you most by trying on all variations from powder to fluorescent.
