Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Spring is nearly upon us; it's time to set aside those winter pieces and to prepare your wardrobe(s) for the warmer months ahead! Pack your thermals away and be ready for a new mix of textures and prints to come out to play.

Spring signifies a new beginning and what better way to show it than to add a splash of colour to your outfits? If you're crying out loud for a break from your neutral attire, loud floral blazers to pastel coloured knitwear will cater to your needs. This season is all about experimenting so don't be afraid to try something a little different! 80s fashion always comes back around and this year, patterned suits have been making a grand reappearance in every fashion lookbook around. Fun is restored back into traditional business wear and it's a trend I can't wait to embrace.

Dressing head to toe in white has been all over the catwalks supported by strong tailoring with structured pieces:

white blazers? check
white patterned shirts? check
white accessories? check!

It's a contemporary twist to a classic black outfit and it's refreshing to say the least! Nothing shows that you're confident more than stepping out in all white and plus, it'll emphasise a tan as soon as the sun decides to come back to the UK.

Still not a big fan of the trend?
No fear, monochrome and stripes are going to be HUGE for spring. As an avid wearer of black and white, I'm delightfully adding those pieces back onto my clothing rail...

On the other end of the spectrum, dig out those old toddler photographs of yourself sporting a mushroom haircut as we're going to be revisiting our childhood. Any picture evidence of you wearing dungarees and pinafores shows a fashion forward self - yes, they're back! Prepare for an invasion of denim overalls and patterned aprons as it's become a 'must-have' clothing item for every spring wardrobe. I know I'll definitely be stocking up...

To have a closer look at the clothing items I've chosen, I uploaded a 'Spring Wardrobe Essentials' video on my YouTube channel and it's embedded below: I go into more detail about each category. I'm so excited to wear the denim dungarees shown in the thumbnail picture - oh... the things we wear to look like a four year old boy/farmer/painter... (delete as appropriate)

I hope you're all having a great day,
