Spring has finally sprung which means it’s time to say goodbye to the winter wardrobe and hello to new season pastels, patterns and prints. This month we’re taking things back to basics and adding fresh feels to help you embrace spring in style.
A brand new season calls for brand new statements, and right now it’s all about stripes! Horizontal, vertical and asymmetric, stripes are shooting in every direction this spring! To keep your stripes looking fresh and aesthetically pleasing, we suggest opting for a pair of trousers with bold block colours, like these from H&M. Pair with a white crop and heeled sandals for a killer look that is full of sass and sure to impress day or night.
If crayola colours aren’t your cup of tea, fear not, for the pastel attack is back! Think baby blues, creamy vanillas, pretty in pinks and luscious lemons, there’s pastel pieces for everyone this spring. We’re currently crushing over this crepe tunic dress from French Connection, the colour palette and floral print just scream spring! If you’re wearing it out in the day pair with some dainty sandals, or for the evening, these lilac heels from Zara. And if you’re feeling particularly bold, layer it with this corduroy blazer from Zara, you really will be the Queen of pastels!
For a more subtle everyday ensemble, you can’t go wrong with denim! However jeans are a strict no no, so ditch the full lengths and replace with these short overalls from Gap. Wear with a cream jumper and trainers for a look that’s so effortlessly stylish even the Clueless cast couldn’t say no to!
If you feel clueless when it comes to make-up, Kiko will most definitely guide you along the right track. Their brand new free soul eyeshadow palette comes with four shades that will make your eyes dazzle all day long. Adding glitz and glam into your spring wardrobe through accessories can prove tricky, as although there are pops of colours and prints flying around, the designs and fabrics are often very light and delicate. So in this case we recommend these ravishing rainbow earrings from Swarovski; elusive enough to not overpower your clothes but alluring enough to still stand out.
It’s not just your wardrobe and accessories that are bringing the sunshine this spring, having the right fragrance is key to any outfit! Sophisticated but not too serious, the brand new Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrance sparkles with a luminous, vibrant energy and comes in the most beautiful bottle.
