Bristol Fashion Week was a vibrant carnival of style, glamour and feel-good strutting, as The Mall at Cribbs Causeway played host to an array of brilliant high street looks.
Presented by Denise Van Outen and Mark Heyes, the event featured 17 catwalk shows combining style tips, celebrity gossip and a run-down of all the must-have trends for Summer 2016. This season, stripes and floral prints took centre stage, while bold block colours and 90s inspired street style also made a comeback.
Mark Heyes gives us his fashion insights for this season, straight from the Bristol Fashion Week catwalk…
Stripes are the new black
If there’s one trend you absolutely must buy into this season, it’s stripes. Vertical stripes are the most flattering and on-trend right now, but you can also mix up your stripe prints for a more edgy look.
Go bold with floral prints
Florals are always on trend for Spring/Summer, but this season darker based florals are hitting the high street, inspired by Dolce & Gabanna. Head to Oasis and check out their new V&A collection, which includes an inspiring selection of printed tea dresses. Denise wore a few of these at the show and looked absolutely fabulous in them.
Embrace bright colours
Bristol Fashion Week devoted a whole scene to block bright colours, with styles from John Lewis. You’ll find bold colours all over the high street right now – don’t be afraid to mix them up and wear contrasting colours for a show-stopping summer look.
Look for throwback 90s styles
Fashion works on a 20-year cycle and so it’s only natural that this season we’re heading back to the 90s for inspiration, from street-style chic with bomber jackets, to gorgeous barely-there slip dresses, you’ll find it all on the high street right now.
