News — New Season Shopping!
There’s a buzz of excitement in the air as we can now shop with a little more freedom – socially distanced of course! Our stores have been busy behind the scenes filling up their racks with the latest Spring/Summer collections, ready for you to dive into and update your neglected wardrobe.
We have perused our stores latest fashion and beauty ranges to inspire you for when you’re visiting us next. Let’s take a look to get you looking and feeling your best this season!
The Latest Fashions
2021 Spring/Summer fashion trends are a breath of fresh air! Patterns, textures and colour are back with a vengeance, saying good riddance to the year 2020, whose fashion trends were – unapologetically – loungewear for the majority of the year.
As our social calendars start to slowly fill up again, we’re bouncing back as we dress to impress! Beautiful dresses will become a firm favourite in every women’s wardrobe. River Island and New Look are hitting all the top trends this season with pinks, feel-good prints, puff-sleeves and more. You’ll be spoilt for choice for your out-out outfit!
We particularly love River Island’s hot pink longline shirt dress, a great ‘back in the office’ comeback in this season’s hottest colour, this outfit will take you from desk to drinks so effortlessly.
Weekends in pub gardens with friends are the best and New Look’s blue check tea dress with its subtle puff sleeve is a great outfit choice for such an event; dress with a pair of fresh white trainers and you’re good to go.
No outfit is complete without accessories and Primark have got us swooning over their collection. This lilac metal handle crossbody bag is the perfect size to fit all your handbag essentials in. We love making a statement and on-trend chunky gold necklaces, layered upon one another do just that! Primark has a wide range of chains in various textures and sizes such as this gold-tone, multi-row mix chain necklace – adding finishing touches to an outfit has never looked so good.
If you’re dreaming of the beach, then the trend ‘escapism’ will resonate with you. Celebrate with bold prints like this Jack & Jones tropical short-sleeved shirt, just what you need for those holiday blues. As we mentioned before, accessories are key! You’ll find all you need here at Cwmbran Centre to accessorise yourself from head to toe. JD Sports have got us covered with their selection of bucket hats – yes that’s right, the ‘90s bucket hat is making a reappearance this Spring! Go all out with prints and bright colours or keep it simple; we’re big fans of this crisp white Nike cord bucket hat for a relaxed yet cool look.
Now we all deserve to splash out once in a while, and this Clogau stainless steel watch is no exception. With its exquisite black mother of pearl face, this timeless classic is a lifetime investment.
The Freshest Beauty Finds
As the weather gets warmer, make-up becomes lighter! Finding products with multiple uses is kind to your purse strings as well as your make-up bag space. The Body Shop’s lip and cheek tint in deep berry is ideal for that fresh summer’s glow adding a subtle wash of colour for that ‘just kissed’ look. Treat your skin to a bit of TLC with The Body Shop’s NEW range of body butters; they moisturize your skin for up to 96 hours plus there are so many fragrances to choose from. We adore the mango one – it smells lush and reminds us of summers abroad!
Now we’re venturing out and about a bit more we’ve got to be smelling sweet! The Fragrance Shop’s Valentino Voce Viva Parfum for women is hitting top notes of fresh Italian bergamot with sweet and juicy mandarin and orange blossom with a touch of vanilla. This will be the scent of the season and will be one that you’ll want to wear every day.
For the men, stand proud with The Perfume Shop’s newly arrived Hugo Boss, The Scent Pure Accord, with its fresh fruit scent and top notes of ginger, this one will get everyone’s attention.
Footwear with Attitude
These boots were made for walking… and so were these heels, trainers, wedges… Here at Cwmbran Centre we are never short of choice for footwear, and for this season our stores are determined to give you happy feet!
Wedges are big this year, so why not go wild in Shoezone’s leopard sandal, it has a comfortable wedge that you’ll be happy to wear all day long. If you’re heading out for some evening drinks and want to show off your new pedi, these beautiful barely-there strappy heels from Deichmann in soft mint will be your perfect match.
We know the men will want to look good when heading back to the office, which is why these Chelsea boots from AG Meek are the perfect combo with any smart trouser. Made of real leather, they’ll have longevity too. But it’s not all work and no play around here! Look top-notch with these Clarks Bizby trainers while having fun in maximum comfort.
