Style Show Live 2016

Style Show Live 2016 has had a dramatic update. Clothes handpicked from Nottingham stores, styled by Style Show Live official stylists into six SS16 trends in an incredible setting. What more could you want?

The show took place in Nottingham's Old Museum Building, right in the heart of the city. At a pre-show blogger Q&A I had the chance to talk to Radio 1's Alice Levine about the show, along with a couple of the organisers. She told us how excited she was, discussing the creative scene in Nottingham and her love for vintage shopping here.

 The first trend was NauticaluxeMade up of 90s inspired crop tops, mixed with sharp mesh and athleisure inspired silhouettes. This trend has made it through AW15/16 and is staying strong through SS16 - think Spice Girls vibes (who doesn't want more girl power?). My favourite look of the show was the striped co-ords above, which surprisingly was from Select!

Second came Botanicals - not just the usual spring florals but bolder, brighter and more confident. Ted Baker meets Cath Kidston vibes, topped off with festival-ready flower headbands.

Monochrome was next, styled with crazy metallics to spice things up - serious layering inspiration.

Definitely one of my favourite trends of the week was Think Pink. Pink is definitely overlooked in the average wardrobe, SS16 calls for all things pink. All out girly; release your inner barbie. March around the streets with your own giant pink balloon.

The Dreamweaver trend is your ultimate guide for festival inspiration. Suede, tassels and crazy patterns are your friend, complete with some John Lennon sunglasses and you are good to go.

Colour Clash was the ultimate end to the show. Without a doubt my favourite trend, it's all about moving out of your comfort zone and forgetting every colour rule you know. Red and pink? Why not? Blue and Green? Go for it! Colour Clash is all about self expression, and what is fashion if it's not fun?
