OLD NOSTALGIA IS BIG NEWS FOR SS18

OLD NOSTALGIA IS BIG NEWS FOR SPRING

So far, 2018 has been the year of nostalgia. Britney is back – at Scarborough, no less – and Lionel Ritchie is set to be dancing on the ceiling somewhere in Chesterfield in the coming months. With the Spice Girls having made our 90s dreams come true with news of their long-awaited reunion too, the year is set to be heavy on the old school inspirations. One thing is for certain though; we’ll look a lot more stylish as we belt out Wannabe at the top of our lungs this time around, not a single platform or Union Jack mini dress in sight. This time around, we’ll be leaving Sporty’s skinny cami tops and tracksuit bottoms on the shelf and taking our 90s inspiration from Baby’s playful polka dot prints and Posh Spice’s love of classic cuts.

Boutique Moschino wasn’t around when Baby Spice last strutted the stage in her platforms but they’d have been a match made in heaven if it was. From the polka dot prints of their AW18 collections to the knitted bow back dress and the button detail boucle number that’s the star of their new season collection, Baby Spice-inspired looks are all grown up.

Posh Spice has proven her worth in the fashion world, recently toasting ten years of her own successful brand. When it comes to recreating Posh’s personal style, there are two ways to turn; MaxMara nails it with neutrals like the camel coat – a staple in her wardrobe season after season. Then there is the LBD. Posh couldn’t have made it through the 90s without one and the same can be said for your SS18. A good LBD never goes out of fashion so you will be wearing yours long after the Spice Girls have hung back up their dancing shoes. We love the square neckline and bow back detail on this simple, sophisticated shift. Just add sky-high heels and a deep wine lip and you’re good to go. Viva Forever to the LBD!

Give a nod to nostalgia this season. Shop new SS18 styles from Boutique Moschino, MaxMara, Michael Kors, ESCADA and more in store now at Robinsons

THE NEW SKIRT SHAPE OF THE SEASON

Put away your pleats and say farewell to floaty numbers because this season’s skirt shape comes straight out of the boardroom and into the bar. The pencil skirt is back and it’s set to be big, so forget what you think you know about the simple skirt shape and prepare to wonder how you ever managed without it.

Back in the day, no wiggle chick was without a sheath skirt that hugged her curves and exuded kittenish appeal. The new season’s skirt shape is softer and looser, skimming the body rather than enveloping it, and in fabrics and colours that just wouldn’t - and shouldn’t - work in the boardroom.

Of course, it isn’t just about the skirt you wear but how you wear it. Pair a black heeled ankle boot with your pencil skirt and jumper combo in the day, or bring your classic leather skirt bang up to date by switching your white shirt for a grey marl tee. This season’s ladylike mid-heels are the perfect pairing for pencil skirts but a slouchy knit or t-shirt on top will avoid any matronly connotations.

Shop new season SS18 styles from the biggest names in fashion now at Robinsons. You can find our Bawtry designer boutique at DN10 6JH with FREE parking available right outside the store.
