Next Insider Exclusive

I have something a bit special for you today! I recently got the chance to ask Next some questions about their SS13 range! I couldn't wait to share their answers with you lot so here you are...

Have you got any tips for transitioning my wardrobe from winter to spring?
  • Invest in one of this season’s key jackets. A colourful leather one is a stylish way to add a colour pop to your AW12 favourites. Other jacket trends include the bomber, the structured jacket and the suit jacket.
  • Dig out your jeans! They’ll keep you warm through the colder months. Then come summer, even darker jeans can be brought up to date with pastel tops or broderie camis. Or if you’re looking to invest in a new pair, we love the dip dyed styles lately which come in classic blue or military inspired khaki.
  • Phase in some summery trousers and wear with wedge trainers or cuffed sandals for a sports luxe feel. In the Pretty Optic collection for Summer 2013, we’ve got some gorgeous fitted trousers in peach, hot pink and ivory which could easily freshen up the darker berry and navy shades from Winter.
  • Blue is the colour of the season, so embrace it! Invest in a blue dress and layer up with knits, tights and boots. Then in summer - dare to bare with some cute gladiator sandals! (See accompanying image of Arizona Muse in daisy lace blue dress and heels)

My favourite trend this spring/summer is monochrome, which pieces from your collection would you recommend?
  • If monochrome is your thing, you’ll really love the Summer Modern Tribes collection as well as the Spring story Mono. The Modern Tribes range really plays with mixing up texture, clashing prints and adding highlights of colour to the monochrome trend. Although it is a tailoring story, there are some really versatile pieces in there which could really be dressed up or down to suit the occasion.
  • We are totally head over heads with this Zebra Print Skirt, which could easily be worn in the office, to a meal with the girls or for a summer soiree. Bringing together the monochrome, animal print and embellishment trends, here Arizona Muse wears it with a simple white shirt with cut out detailing.

  • Another style staple is the black and white linen top in an aztec inspired print. This again can be worn in so many ways - with some skinny fit chinos, a smart black pencil skirt, your favourite jeans  or even with shorts for a festival-feel.

Wasn't that fab! I got some great tips, hope you did too! There are so many lovely pieces for spring summer, just wish this horrible weather would go away and we could start dressing for spring! Here are my picks from the collection... what do you think?
