As we are beginning to see glimmers of the warmer weather and the season is starting to change, I thought it was about time for a new style of post and one that has be based around my true passion in life, Style.
Whenever we move from season to season, whether that’s spring to summer, autumn to winter, or in our case, winter to spring; there’s always new trends and key items which have been highly featured on the catwalk, that have then influenced the shops and our buying habits. We all like to have a bit of the new season and to update our style and bring it out of the old and into the new. However, it’s not always easy to identify these key items, as the shops obviously update their whole stock ready for the new season, but we can’t go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. Therefore, I have created a little fashion post, which you are reading now, called The Spring Clothing Edit, which includes around 5 key trends, colours or pieces which I love, and that I think will be cost-effective and stylish ways to bring your style into the next new season.
The Floppy Hat
This pretty, yet super stylish accessory is one of the first items on my list as soon as I think about spring. The key to spring dressing is all about layering, and this style of hat complements this perfectly, as the weather is just right for it. There’s hopefully no windy rain storms that will not only blow your beautiful hat off your head, but also ruin the whole look and ‘flop’ of it. It’s maybe not something you could wear everyday in spring, especially not when there’s April showers, but it’s a great piece, that with a pastel or nude touch will blend in perfectly to create a new, updated, spring wardrobe.
The Pastel Coat
Even though the weather is beginning to get warmer, you are still going to need a thick outer layer to throw on for when it’s gets a bit chilly. And, the pastel coat is the perfect thing. Although pastels have not been that highly featured in this year’s spring trends, unlike last year, a lot of us still have some lovely pieces hanging around that will still complement the new 2015 spring trends perfectly, such as white jeans. By using this piece, you are keeping warm in a stylish way, and also saving money by using an item from last year or from last season and you are also creating lovely outfit combination’s for the new season to come.
Black and White
Like many previous seasons, black and white is featured highly again as one of the most easy, chic and stylish trends to wear for spring 2015. The two colours that are involved in this trend complement each other perfectly and create an outfit that any fashion icon could die for. My favourite ways to rock this trend is to wear one of my many black and white slogan tee-shirts from River Island, with a pair of black jeans, a textured black jumper/cardigan, a black leather bag and some fur skater shoes. The mix between black and white and all the textures takes it form boring two tones, to a lovely outfit. Who said wearing black is boring?
Tortoise Shell Sunglasses
As soon as it starts to get a bit sunny, you need a pair of these super chic, accessories to get your face ready for spring. They are one of the most common types of accessory for the warmer months and something which can only be made any better by the latest trend of tortoise shell. This pattern takes the boring old pair of ray bans, cat eye’s or visors and changes them into a must-have accessory that can instantly bring a cool and classy vibe to an outfit this spring.
This season there is a brand new colour on the block, and it’s called Khaki Green. We all know of the colour in a way which is no so stylish, as it is mainly known for being the ‘it’ colour for anything to do with the army and camouflage. However, this season we have taken it out of the rough and sturdy army wear, and brought it into a stylish way to wear green. With it’s muted tones it goes perfectly with a variety of colours and particularly complements a good white or camel piece. My favourite way to wear this colour has to be through a block of it, such as a trench coat, a pair of jeans or maybe just a fedora (not technically a block of the colour, but oh well)
I hope you feel inspired by this new fashion post, and feel like you know a little more about a few key items, trends and colours which are coming up and what you need to look out for to update your wardrobes.
