Spring trends

Posted by Katrina

I started this blog post on International Happiness Day (Wednesday 20th March) which feels very apt, because looking at some of the gorgeous items I’m featuring really does make me happy.

And I think you’ll agree, ladies and gentlemen, that with this onslaught of bad weather we need a bit of happiness in our lives! Anyway, I digress – spring trends! You may not be ready to wear them, but you can definitely start filling up your wardrobe in preparation for that slight break in the clouds and gentle increase in temperature.

And as we start filling our (metaphorical) shelves with spring/summer goodies, a few rather pretty and striking trends are beginning to emerge.


We’re quite used to seeing them on pretty tops or necklaces, but butterflies have definitely emerged as the stand-out hosiery pattern for this season. The epitome of femininity, butterfly-patterned tights range from an all-over-the-leg style to the more subtle detail of being placed on certain parts of the leg. Check out our selection of butterfly tights below.

We’re dotty about spots! There’s just something about this feminine pattern that is perfect for the more frivolous and fun seasons. Our selection of spotty items range from the comfortable cotton ankle sock to the more glamorous sheer tights, so sporting spots for any outfit couldn’t be easier!

From bright, bold prints to delicate, lace shapes, floral designs can be extremely versatile – as demonstrated by the selection below. The appearance of beautiful flowers generally signals that warmer weather has arrived, so it’s no surprise that the pattern features heavily in spring/summer trends.
