Spring is upon us, even if the weather say otherwise, and this means we get to plan our Spring/Summer wardrobe. When planning your new wardrobe it is important to have a few classic staples in there that you can pair with pretty much any new styles you’re going to add. The most classic prints should always be a mainstay of your wardrobe regardless of the season or time of year, and what’s more classic than a check print. It stretches back centuries, which says a lot about its popularity throughout the decades. Plaid, tartan and gingham are the most famous check prints but there are some amazing varieties out there. Need some styling tips? We’ve got your back…check our list out below.
The Kardashians have a lot to answer for. They have brought some awful trends to the forefront but sometimes they bring some really interesting styles into the limelight. Kim K seemed to reignite the cycling short craze when she stepped out in a nude coloured pair with Kanye a few months back. If Kim K wears it, street stylers often follow suit. Cycle shorts have also hit the runways and featured heavily in many designers collections. Neon seems to be the new colour of choice for a more casual affair bit of course black is the go to colour for a dressier event.
The hoody was once the go to style that most ladies would wear while relaxing or going out to do something casual. Times change and now Cardigans are becoming the topper of choice. They are fantastic for layering, come in some amazing fabrics and are very versatile.
When every season comes along, new colours are brought into the fold. In the Springtime it’s normally subtle hints of pastel colours that take centre stage or more neutral, earthy tone that are normally the go to in Autumn/Winter. There’s nothing I love more than to shake things up in the wardrobe and introduce some beautiful new shades. These unwritten rules of what colours you can wear, when, have been forgotten about.
We all can have a love/hate relationship with fashion. Sometimes you could just be coming to terms with a new trend and the POOF it can be gone in a puff of smoke. This is why I try to not follows trends by the book and instead try to put my own spin on it. I try and seek out the styles i think are going to be big all season then add other pieces to make it my own. The key to nailing this method is to make sure you using some wardrobe staples like a trench coat or a timeless pair of indigo wash jeans to pull the whole outfit together.
I don’t know about you but I’ve been struggling to find some white boots that I really like. I’ve got a killer floral dress, that looks like its been sent into the future from the 70s, that would look amazing with some knee high white boots.
Is there anything more satisfying than stumbling across an outfit, that’s been throw to the back of your wardrobe? This happened to me the other day and I am totally going to wear the outfit again soon.
This might come as a shock to you but green suede has been taking the fashion world by storm. Spring/Summer runways have been packed full of suede and the majority came in many different shades of green. Everything from mint green to emerald green we’re on show and I for one love it. Green is one of my favourite colours and I was so happy that it featured so heavily in many of the big designers ranges.
