Navigating the transition from one season to the next can often be tricky especially as spring starts in the middle of winter on the high street. But the solution is simple. To avoid missing out on emerging trends, we’ve simply mastered the art of layering… working out that if we’re nice and snug up top – our legs are often fine in a skirt or pair of culottes. So we pulled together our favourite looks and headed out to snap 3 ‘spring solutions‘ – hover over the items to shop straight from this post!
Embroidered Hoody and Metallic Midi Skirt
The maximalist trend is still going strong with embroidery emblazoning everything from sweaters, to shoes to jeans. Our grey embroidered hoody is such a cool wardrobe addition. It gives a sporty edge to a smarter ensemble but also elevates a casual off-duty look – anyone else thinking business at the front and party at the back? We’ve popped a white shirt underneath ensuring the cuffs and hem are on show – this creates a nice neutral break between the hoody and metallic midi. To complete the look (and make the whole outfit pop), we’ve styled in a canary yellow tote bag. Hellloooo summer!
Grey Sweater and Pleated Midi
We’re sticking with the midi theme for this next outfit. Midis are a conservative length if you’re considering some leg-baring action – there’s generally less maintenance required too (shaving/tanning above the knee – not necessary!). Texture is key with this look, we’ve chosen a mottled effect jumper with on trend oversize sleeves and teamed it with a velvet pleated skirt. These textures alone are warm and cosy, so going sans-tights won’t feel like such a shock to the system. To give this look a playful vibe, we’ve chosen these amaaaazing pom pom trainers. Whether you contrast them against a feminine skirt like we have here, or team with boyfriend jeans and a tee for ultimate off-duty-model feels – these are a MUST buy for your spring wardrobe!
Ribbon Tie Sweater and Jacquard Skirt
For something a little more dressy, we’ve taken this GORGE jacquard skirt and teamed it with our oatmeal sweater. The statement sleeves and ribbon tie detail make this an effortlessly versatile addition to your wardrobe – we’re thinking jeans and pumps for the weekend and elevated with heels for a smarter occasion. Our pink structured tote makes the most CUTESY finishing touch – just add a touch of peachy lippy for a wonderfully girly take on transitional dressing.
