Still, when the S/S13 Apricot look book dropped through my door I couldn't help but take a look and start mentally compiling a wish list for when the temperature finally rises in to double figures. Embracing trends from Sixties Monochrome through to "Soft Grunge" and the ever present florals (oh, and a few other key styles too) here are my top picks:
|I've never much been a fan of predominantly white clothing, I'm just too messy but the cut and style of this dress has won me over.|
|I love how the cut out detail has transformed this little black dress in to something a bit more unusual for day or night.|
|Get your layering right and you could wear this little number right now. A very fine knit long sleeve underneath or statement jacket over the top + thick tights and boots and you're good to go.|
|Likewise with this dress, the darker colour scheme makes this a potential trans-seasonal piece making it double the bargain at only £30|
|The print on this makes me think of sunny summer holidays which is reason enough to buy it surely?|
Ok so looking through these aren't the most summery of Apricot's new arrivals but I like them anyway. I think any of them could be bought now and worn right through until A/W drops (and beyond) which makes them excellent value for money. Nothing I've featured costs over £40 (the jacket is the most expensive at £39) so what are you waiting for? Banish those winter blues and SHOP...if it isn't payday just yet it soon will be!
Have you started thinking about what you'll be wearing come Spring yet?
