After hopefully dragging ourselves through the remainder of a drab and freezing winter, we have welcomed the Topshop Spring/Summer collection 2014 with open (and ready to be clothed) arms.

Famed for its consistent talent for spotting new trends and applying them directly to the high street, Topshop has won a fervent following. Spanning many generations, but mainly focussing on a 16-30 target.

So when the eagerly anticipated new collection was released in the shops and on their well-established website (www.topshop.com), its immediate appeal left no doubts, with many must have pieces.

The target image when walking into one of their many stores is clearly outlined – with light pastel shades around every corner.

Light hues of pink, green and blue are dominant on all clothing styles, from dresses to sandals to jackets for a milder day.

A standout print from the new collection is gingham, which would certainly be applicable to summery picnics in the park – sure to be a hit with customers that appreciate the quainter side of fashion.

Although mainly sticking to the prettier girly-esque side of the spectrum, Topshop have also included splashes of grunge, such as the leather look cut out vest, and their FLORENCE gladiator sandals.

However, feminine style seems to be prevalent throughout the summery line, with even the inclusion of pink jelly shoes and t shirts printed with scenes from Disney favourite The Jungle Book.

Denim has been a consistently important fabric in the fashion industry for years, and the recent emergence of a more self-assured attitude to clothes has seen the once forbidden combination of denim on denim rise in popularity. So naturally Topshop has stocked lots of new items, such as the MOTO popper front mini skirt.

The new collection ticks every box of requirements for summer style, keeping things light from start to finish, and is sure to be worn by fashionistas the length and breadth of the country.
