Tropical, Pastels, Co-ords - The biggest S/S trends nailed in one set (feat. New Look)

Everyone can see that the massive trends of Spring have started to translate over to summer and these three show no signs of slowing down. Co-ords are still everywhere and with the festival season and sights set on holidays coming up, co-ord sets are upping their game. That's why I knew I had to have this Neon Palm set from New Look. The lightweight fabric and pastel colours meant it would be perfect for summer and an asset to any wardrobe. The tropical print and complimentary colours are so summery, it's enough to make you feel as if it never rains at all and because they are such beautiful pieces, they actually make great stand alone items styled with summer basics.

I actually put a completely different twist on how I styled this outfit to how it was styled on the website, I obviously wanted to wear the set together but wanted to change up the silhouette. The top is actually supposed to be worn with the buttons down the back but wearing the buttons on the front instead, bought more detail to the outfit and I actually much preferred it worn like this, also tying the front to nip the top at the waist. The skirt has a slit up one side so I just tied the two sides together, again to make more detail at the front of the outfit and give the skirt a better drape.

I styled the outfit with a gorgeous blue china paisley kimono from Primark that I picked up last month for just £8 and one of the new colour mini satchels. Primark have such an amazing range of kimonos to offer this season, more so than I've ever seen any previous year, and don't forget to check the swimwear section too as there are a few beauties are hiding in there. As for the mini satchels, they have so many cute colours on offer at the moment for S/S but this gorgeous pale turquoise colour was my favourite and really compliments this outfit. They're just £6 so I will probably go back for another colour at some point.
