Spring fashion must haves

Straight from the catwalk and into our stores! Put a spring in your step with the latest on-trend looks for the season ahead

Sorbet shades

Pastels are always a big hit at this time of the year, but we’re obsessed with these new sorbet shades that seem to be cropping up everywhere. Think raspberry, pistachio and fresh citrus brights… all mixed in together! It’s a surprisingly uplifting take on the usual spring colour palette.

Nautical but nice

It just wouldn’t be spring without a Breton stripe, but this season expect to go all-out nautical with fisherman’s sandals, blazers, cargo shorts, and deck shoes! And if that still isn’t seaworthy enough for you, worry not because our new JackSpeak store has everything you need to be ship shape and Exeter fashion. Taking inspiration from the last 400 years of Royal Naval history, this local brand champions all things nautical (and British) including every sailor’s favourite tipple, their very own rum!

Flower garden

Spring is in the air, and that means flowers, flowers, everywhere! We love a classic ditsy print dress, but this year you’ll be seeing floral details on pretty much everything. From embroidered daisy motifs and quirky printed sweatshirts to beautiful blossomy blouses – this is a trend you won’t be able to miss! That’s all good with us, though… the more blooms the better!

Cool for kids

Here at Princesshay, our stores have so much choice for children, with fashion for all ages from babies and toddlers through to teens. This season you’ll see the main trends of floral and nautical reflected in childrenswear, with plenty of pretty prints and Breton stripes, but you’ll also find lots of lovely practical clothing – ideal for all those spring showers. Think raincoats, wellies and sportswear for muddy puddles and outdoor adventures.
