March is here and Spring is finally on it’s way! That makes it the perfect time to continue with my spring summer 2015 fashion trends review and help you get a head start on all the key trends this season. This week is the last week I’ll be focusing on womenswear, with next week solely dedicated to the beauty trends.

Jeans lovers will be celebrating as denim-mania is about to sweep the nation, well the fashion-conscious. Featured everywhere from Rebecca Minkoff, Tommy Hilfigger, Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi, whether you like it or not, denim is a big player this season. Even Moschino got in on the act with a Barbie inspired two-piece. The good news is, there are so many ways to wear this trend, it’s something that everyone can wear. Make like Stella McCartney & Gucci and done hedd to toe denim, with a-line skirts and midi shirt dresses being particularly on trend. If your not that brave, take note from Jourdan Dunn at the Burberry Prorsum show, teaming a denim jacket with similar shades in different materials to create a similar, yet softer look.

Another trend which may, or may not, be your cup of tea is the patchwork, mix and match trend. If it looks like you’ve customized it yourself you’ve hit this trend on the head. Bonus points if you incorporate vintage fabric a la Prada and Uma Wang, this trend let’s you embrase your creative side. If I’m being perfectly honest, this trend isn’t 100% my cup of tea. Whilst I quite like Stella McCartney’s soft floral patchwork dress and Prada‘s green shift, Marni‘s mono-chrome outfit is too extreme. Proenza Schouler has presented a kind of middle ground incorporating different coloured panels, but I can’t see myself donning a pair of half green, half white trousers anytime soon.

So there we have it, I’ve covered all of the main fashion looks popping up this season (click here if you’ve missed any). Like it or not, fashion is a form of expression, but I don’t think I’m anywhere near as artistic to be able to pull off a pencil skirt and ruffles at the same time.

So are any of these trends off the cards for you?
