A question on every fashionistas mind come this time of year…How do we tackle the transitional period while still looking great? The weather cannot seem to make it’s mind up so we are torn between still wearing our knitwear and busting out our brand new Spring/Summer range. It inevitable that one day soon you are going to blink and that winter appropriate knitwear will be obsolete (Until the end of the year, at least). It’s time to lean into spring fashion — and yes, it’s totally doable.
I think that some of us make more of an issue out of dressing for the transitional period than is actually necessary. Working new Spring trends into your wardrobe even though it’s still chilly outside isn’t as hard as you probably thought. Sure, most of us are not necessarily going to rock midi dresses and sunglasses before June but there is, in fact, plenty of on-trend newness available now for the picking. From pastels to embellishments to plastics to prints, here are 3 shoppable ways for you to inject a little spring update into your closet right now — without freezing your butt off.
While subtle pastel shades were all over the Spring 2018 catwalks, lavender emerged as the clear favourite for most designers. Get your purple power in the form of a lightweight knitted jumper that will last you through breezy Spring temps and brighten your mood.
Release your inner cowboy and get some fringing in your life. We are particularly fond of any ankle boots that you can find with some fringing design, preferably in suede. If you want to go full cowboy then get yourself a suede jacket with fringing. Accessories are also a winner. Handbags with fringing detail can finish a neutral looking outfit off nicely
Shimmer For Days
Designers like Christian Dior made it clear they want you to shine this spring and not just for evening. Try some shimmer for daytime in the form of sequins paired with a more casual staple, like a chunky knit or graphic tee.
