FIrstly, thank you all for the well wishes for my birthday. I sincerely appreciate the love.
Did you miss it, where have you been? See full details HERE
With spring just around the corner, we are almost in for a wardrobe change. This is the season when the heavy coats take the back seat and we then begin to show more skin and embrace more airy clothes.
I have done all your worrying for you on the few things you need for spring so sit back, relax and enjoy my 7 must haves for Spring.
All of the items can take you from Spring straight into the Summer. Now, let’s have a look……….
Number 1 ::: Tan Ankle Boots or Sandals
The tan boots / sandals are quiet delicate in colour !
Since the rain and snow would have wound down, the tan coloured ankle boots / sandals will be perfect for Spring as there will be little or no mess at all that could ruin them. Not only that, they will be perfect if worn with pale coloured denim, with skater dresses / skirts.
You can pair your ankle boots with socks and you can also wear them with shorts.
You can go for the open toe ones, the lace up ones or ones with zip detail.
The tan ankle boots / sandals are my number 1 must have item for fall. They don’t have to be high heels.
Number 2 ::: The Light Weight Scarf
Since the weather won’t be as cold, a light weight scarf will be more than enough to keep you nice and warm while still making a style statement.
Pair yours with a jumper and denim for day time and for night time, throw it loosely on your shoulder paired with your little black dress and heels.
Number 3 ::: A statement Sunshades / Sun glasses.
Spring comes with a little bit or a lot of sunshine if we are lucky enough.
Add a colourful / statement sunshades to your look for some swag.
Glasses make a nice fashion statement. They are an enough accessories on there own.
Number 4 ::: The Coloured Blazer or the Leather Jacket
Of course your life style would determine if you should get the leather jacket or the blazer.
If you are the “suit and tie lady” a.k.a in the corporate world, the structured / cropped blazer will be perfect for your spring wardrobe. If you are the rock star chic and your life style permits you, go for the leather jacket…….
The leather jacket is temperature sensitive. See my article on how to choose the best leather jacket if you don’t know how.
They can make you cool when you are warm and can make you warm when you are cool.
They are perfect for your spring wardrobe.
Go for a crop fit, they will be perfect for dressing up your evening look. Wear yours with a tulle to toughen up your look or with a midi dress for warmth and to create balance.
Number 5 ::: A Floral or Striped Midi or Skater dress
A stripe or floral dress will be perfect for spring. If you can, get both floral and stripes. One will do for a start.
You can pair yours with a flesh tone / nude coloured with your ankle boots. If it’s not too chilly, pair yours with a pair of stripy sandals.
You can also wear your floral dress with either your leather jacket or coloured blazer. The choice is yours, do as you please but have fun.
Number 6 :::: The White Tee / Shirt & Boy friend Jeans
The white tee / shirt and boyfriend denim are all wardrobe essentials and are perfect for spring.
Pair your tee / shirt with your denim and flats or trainers for a casual look or with heels and blazer to dress it up.
You can also layer your Spring dress on your white shirt or white tee.
Throw on your tee with your leather jacket with your denim and heels and you are “chiced up” for a night out in town.
The boyfriend denims / jeans are laid back and relaxed. Have fun pairing yours.
Number 7 ::: The Trench Coat or Sleeveless Waist Coat
I discovered I do not have any styling of the trench coat. Will do one as soon as possible; a short sleeve one in delicate colour.
Your trench coat could be a long sleeve one, or a short sleeve one or a long line one or striped one as you can see above.
Whichever one you choose, have fun styling it.
I hope you found my selection of “7 must haves for spring” helpful. You can go ahead and add more pieces to your spring wardrobe. Always remember to pick up things you can wear over and over again a.k.a maximise. See my article on The Art of Maximising.
