The Dress Edit
A summer dress is one of the key items to invest in at the start of the season. Whether for home or for holidays, casual or for events, there are a fantastic selection of dresses to choose from this season.
There are many colours on offer, ranging from soft neutrals to bright summer shades. Blue remains popular in many ranges due to its wearability, and you can expect to find everything from classic navy to pretty denim blue tones. Coral reds, lemons and khaki feature, as well as turquoise, grey and monochrome. There truly is something for everyone this year.
The trend for prints which we have seen in previous seasons, is not going away any time soon either. Botanical prints, geometric designs and stripes feature heavily again this spring.
We are delighted to see dresses with a little sleeve, or sleeveless dress with a coordinating jacket or knit. This makes it easier to get these dresses on earlier in the season and deals with many women’s concerns about covering up.
When you have a special event or occasion to shop for it is often a dress that comes to mind. We try to stock a selection of dresses which can be dressed up for the event and then worn again afterwards. These sorts of styles often work in all situations from the summer garden party to a birthday celebration meal.
Here at Kings Road, we stock some fantastic brands and can offer a beautiful dress from nearly all of them. Ranges such as Pomodoro, Ilse Jacobsen, Adini and Zilch are strong dress collections and have a good choice of styles. We also have some unique and individual styles from our other favourite brands such as Sahara, Sandwich, Vetono and Masai.

Step into Spring
The birds are twittering outside. The warmth of the sun’s rays challenges the brisk cold air. This time of year is one of my favorites. I love it when the new Spring collections start to arrive as they bring light and colour back to the shop floor, and with them the promise of the warm weather to come.
This Spring, fashion delivers pretty pastels, with rose pinks, pale blues and aqua plus elegant silver creating a delicate combination. By contrast, expect to find stronger pinks and coral reds set against navy and cream offering a more definite colour palette.
Prints are still key, with geometric designs and diffused florals remaining popular.
Spring knitwear layered over a blouse works well as a transitional look, adding a certain softness to the top half, whilst still allowing jeans and ankle boots to keep you warm to your toes.
This is a great time to focus on spring jackets, be they denim, leather or jersey. We are loving this denim jacket by Sandwich with a contemporary sleeve detail. Check out the latest Ilse Jacobsen spring coats which are breathable, yet wind and rain proof with a soft micro fleece lining. They are our top choice for functional yet stylish outerwear, all in great colours to compliment the season.
