Summer Loving…

We know its tippng down outside, so we will have to try very hard to picture ‘summer’. If you have hit the high street recently you will have spied a few trends which are sure to be big in the coming months; mouth-watering sorbet colours, bold florals and paisley.

It is one thing seeing these trends on the catwalk, or on our A-list celebs in fashion magazines, but you may find yourself wondering how you are going to shop with these trends in mind, as you might not fancy buying a paisley pair of trousers, or lemon coloured dress. But one way you can bring these trends into your life very easily, is through your lingerie. Luckily Bravissimo have covered the major trends and translated them to great sets, inspired by this year’s spring/summer collections.

Catwalk Trends For Spring/Summer 2012

Ellie Bra by Cleo

Florals are big, brave and bold, with lots of combinations of varied and clashing colours. Wear them from head to toe for a maximum impact. The fifties vintage look and seventies ‘large & loud’ florals are here to stay. For a gorgeous floral set with real flower power, check out the Ellie Bra by Cleo. This bra is based on the Juna shape, which we know our Bravissimo ladies love, as it creates fabulous shape and uplift. It is a half-cup, lightly padded and is available in a vivid abstract floral print of different blues, which is contrasted with gorgeous pink lace trim.

Sorbet… Some of the colours on the catwalk this spring/summer look good enough to eat. Lemon, peach, aqua, mint, and pinks feature. The way to wear them is together is try a pale pink jacket with mint trousers or a colour block geometric shift dress, in two different shades of sorbet. Take a look at our gorgeous Tango Plunge Bra by Panache. Available in tutti frutti, it is an underwired plunge, which is the perfect bra for a lower cut top. One Bravissimo customer comments that, “It is comfortable and discrete and very true to size”.

Paisley… It was only a matter of time until paisley came back round again. Stella McCartney and Paul Smith both used it in their collections, it is seen on the catwalks as an all-over print. Trousers and top worn together in a pyjama style (which is not for the fainthearted) as it’s a hard look to carry off. Translated to the high street, paisley works perfectly as floaty summer dress. Why not check out our striking paisley bra, the Alexa Bra by Cleo. We have had really fantastic reviews for this bra, our reviewers say “This bra is amazing, the fit, support and shape are brilliant” “Gives amazing cleavage” It is an underwired balconette and is available in a fabulous teal print. So treat yourself, if you want to bring some Boho to your bra drawer.

We have yet more new summer styles available this coming Monday. So check the website to see more like this!
