One of my favourite things about the spring season is all the floral motifs that inevitably come with it. It’s time to put all your heavier winter clothing into storage and make room for your wardrobe to bloom with beautiful blouses, flowy skirts, and cute dresses!
Chiffon blouses are pretty, feminine pieces that are just perfect for spring. Seriously, darlings – nothing exudes elegance more than chiffon! Go for one in a pastel pink or soft peach, and wear it loosely over a pair of light blue skinnies, or even tucked into belted maxi skirt.
White jeans are back in style – and they’re more transitional than ever! While they’re forever a summer favourite, don’t be afraid to pull them out in the spring. Layer them with a chunky off-the-shoulder sweater and high-heeled ankle boots, and your favourite pair of white denims quickly become a spring staple.
Of all the skirt lengths and shapes out there, a maxi skirt with a bit of movement is a wear-anywhere silhouette that flatters every shape! Skirts should be fun, so choose one in a fresh colour like mint green or soft coral. Floral patterns are fabulous, too! On top, wear a basic body suit in a neutral colour like cream or white.
The shape of the one-shoulder dress has been in hibernation for a few years, but if the international spring 2015 runways have been any indication, it’s about to make a major comeback! Go for one in emerald green or burnt orange and pair it with a pair of strappy sandals, and you’re all set for a glamorous spring luncheon!
Knits aren’t only for sweaters. We’ve spotted knit pants and tops in past seasons, but we are sure spring 2016 is going to be the season of the sweater dress. It isn’t meant to be a body-con situation, so don’t go for one too tight. Opt for a style with a little more tailoring and flare to make it modern, and finish off your look with a slim, elongated pendant necklace.
White Button-Down Shirt
This garment might seem super-basic, but it’ll sure come in handy on colder days that call for preppy or polished. Make sure you go for a crisp white one that’s well-fitting. You can then wear your button-down tucked into a sexy high-waisted pencil skirt or trendy pair of boyfriend jeans without looking lumpy.
