Very Spring Summer 2016 Fashion Preview

Dreaming of the sunshine? Me too after attending the Very Spring / Summer 2016 press preview event!

Gorgeous soft fabrics, cool fringe detail and ultra pretty prints were key for the new collections, but let’s have a closer look at some of the best bits so you know what to look for and can snap up your favourite outfits before anyone else. It’s all about being first when it comes to fashion – someone asking you where you got something is the ultimate compliment!

Pastels and Suede


This was the first thing that I saw as I entered the room and it cheered me up straight away. It looks like Spring / Summer will be the time to indulge your feminine side with light fabrics, pretty florals and pastel colours to feel all pretty and girly. I particularly liked the maxi with a big split that is the ultimate cover up for a bikini on a spring break.

Summer Party Prints


Bold is back! When the sun is out it should be celebrated and I loved the party outfits that are fresh, floral and bright. The printed trouser suit was styled so well with a clashing print blouse – matchy matchy is so over.

Summer Paisley Prints


There were just so many eye-catching clothes! I loved the embellished box jacket, which would see you through the whole season with jeans or skinny trousers and the maxi dresses are guaranteed to attract attention and would look lovely with tanned summer skin.

Suede Fringe Dress


In every collection, there are some outfits that you like more than anything else and this suede dress was one of them. It’s a really flattering shift dress shape but the fabric and fringe detail make it look so expensive. The pale pink colour will make you appear more tanned than you are, which is always a bonus.

Suede Fringe Jacket


This jacket is in the V by Very collection and I can guarantee I am going to get one as soon as it’s in next year. I’ve seen similar ones on the designer catwalks during London fashion week, styled with simple dresses or even jeans and a white blouse. It’s so versatile and it will be the talking point of any outfit. What do you think?

Summer Sandals


Shoes are always the finishing touch to a look and this season there are some stunning ones. You’ll have happy feet in these gorgeous cut out and lace up styles. I’m liking the pink cut out sandals, which I can match to my nail polish but the blue shoes are pretty fabulous too, aren’t they?

Red Suede Dresses


These dresses caught my eye as the dark red colour was gorgeous and then I saw the material and fell in love. I like the colour block detail on the shirt dress as I haven’t seen a dip dyed dress like this before – it’s very original. As for the fringe dress, imagine dancing in that with the fringe swinging as you move.

Pleated Party Dress



I noticed this dress as it’s so elegant and chic. Again, this is all about getting in touch with your girly side and it would look lovely with nude or black stilletos at a summer wedding or party.

What’s your favourite look from the selection above? Spring will come before we know it so it’s good to be prepared.
