We’re into March and only have a short time to enjoy spring before summer is upon us (and the bikinis come out for the holidays). If you’re unlucky enough to be British and have to deal with the rain, here are ideas to stay in fashion and warm whilst showcasing a spring style.
1. The Gilet.
The weather is slowly warming up so it’s time to get rid of the big winter coats and have something a bit more lightweight. Pastels are very much in style at the moment, and gilets are perfect to wear over long sleeved tops and with skirts and boots.
2. The satchel.
Now that we don’t have to carry around hats, gloves and heavy weight scarves, our bags can get a bit smaller! (Just a bit though, we still need room for the makeup bag). Satchels are professional and chic and look perfect paired with a preppy gingham skirt and blouse.
Now that its getting warmer, it’s time to show off that sun kissed skin! Seeing as we can’t all immediately fly off to the Maldives, investing in a new bronzer palette is the next best thing. Go for something that leaves your skin glowing without looking too tanned. A natural looking glow is beautiful in spring.
Hopefully we can bust out the short sleeved blouses and dresses soon, without having a billion layers over the top! To accessorise, thin bangles or a simple charm bracelet looks so delicate with a skater dress. Paired with ballet flats or court shoes, going simple and minimal on the accessories leaves you with a chic but professional look.
It’s time to say goodbye to the winter wool scarves and hello to something a bit more lightweight and dressy. Silk and lightweight scarves put with long sleeved tops, fitted trousers and ankle boots is both a stylish look for the office (add a blazer for a more professional look) and for a shopping trip or drinks out with your friends.
For those of us who have been wearing thick tights over winter and don’t like going bare legged, it’s time to invest in some opaque tights. To add a bit of glam, go for the patterned tights with a floral design, so appropriate for a spring time look!
We still have to face the rain, and umbrellas can be such clunky, unattractive things! My favourite umbrella that is both stylish and pretty is the Jack Wills mini umbrella. I also love any with a floral design or in a pastel colour.
This is everything I’m loving for the spring look! What are your favourite things to bring out in spring?
