There’s a lot going on the world right now, and this winter seems to be going on forever. So what better reason do you need than to cheer yourself up with some new season fashion? Spring is very nearly here, and that means all the spring clothing has now landed. But if you’re worried about not being able to afford costly new season items, we have a solution. Our Blue Vanilla voucher codes are currently offering you £10 off your order when you spend £50 or more on their new arrivals. Add their already excellent value prices to the mix and you’ve a great way to save on some of these must-have spring trends…
Those palm leaves have been all over all sorts of fabrics in the last year but there’s no sign of them going anywhere just yet. And thank goodness for that because these prints make for fabulous dresses, especially when coupled with the floaty boho dresses that are also very much in right now too. Blue Vanilla have fully embraced the tropical look with a number of their new arrivals, and here are two of our favourites – the Darcey Black Leaf Print Lace Up Smock Dress (£24) and the Ananya Tropical Print Crop Top (£14). In fact, the latter also comes with a matching tiered midi skirt, and did you know tiering is also very much in this season? So much so that we’ve gone into a bit more detail below…
Tiered Dresses and Skirts
Imagine the shape of a wedding cake and then dial it down a bit. That’s what we mean by tiering when we talk about it in fashion terms. One such example is the Anaiya Tiered Tie Waist Batwing Midi Dress (£28) that ticks off so many spring trends boxes – it’s tiered, of course, it’s in a key pastel shade and it’s got that key boho vibe nailed.
More Bold Boho Prints
If pastels aren’t really your thing, don’t worry. Blue Vanilla have catered for you as well. Although this particular shade of pale blue and the delightful mint green are in this spring (see below for more examples of the mint green trend), there is no shortage of bolder patterns and colours either. The patterns of the Zoha Button Front Floral Print Maxi Dress (£38) are just pure 1970s and will see you well into the summer months too.
Marvellous Mint Green
We are spoilt for choice when it comes to colour trends this season. For example, neons are going to be all the rage, but from that extreme, we can also go to mint green – set to be one of THE colours of the season. And what could be more appropriate for the spring time? We particularly love this Blue Vanilla Niamh Asymmetric Floral Print Skirt (£22), another floaty essential that covers more than one trend.
Puffed Sleeves and Lacy Frills
We’ve combined these two great looks because they are so often combined together in one outfit, as is the case with the Kathleen Layered Lace Frills Top below (£25). In fact, Blue Vanilla have very much embraced the puffed sleeve trend in many of their new garments this season, not just combining them with lace, but also with another spring trend – the pinstripe. Keep an eye out for their Eadie Pinstripe Puff Sleeve Shirt (£20) and the Sana Gingham Puff Sleeve Pocket Shirt (£20), both ideal if you want to channel your inner-80s preppy power dresser.
Outdoor Cargo Chic
Another 70s-themed trend to look out for here to go along side those tropical palm prints and we’re not complaining. Cargo is going to be everywhere this season be it in jumpsuit form or like with one of our spring garments of choice from Blue Vanilla, a button front dress. The theme here is ‘chic intrepid explorer’ and what better way to achieve that than by wearing the Miriam Button Front Pocket Midi Dress (£28)?
Of course there’s plenty more to enjoy over on Blue Vanilla, especially when it comes to floaty, floral dresses, smart casual pastels and yes, those puffed sleeves. And as you may have noticed with the prices we’ve featured, all you have to do is to purchase two or three of these new arrivals to enjoy an extra £10 off you order when shopping with our code. So, start putting the heavy winter threads away for another year and introduce a bit of light to your wardrobe. You never know, it might even encourage the sun to come out!
