With spring in the air (and in your step) now is the time to add some warmth and colour to your wardrobe.
This season is all about bright colours, edgy graphics, and lots of accessories (think arm party and layering!). Here are our tips on how you can add some pizzazz to your outfit.
Colour pop your outfit
Don’t wait until summer to bring out the bright colours, get into the fun a little early. Bringing a pop of colour to your outfit can be a little daunting, but rest assured, it’s not as hard as you think. Team a black and white outfit with a pop of yellow and you will suddenly bring your outfit to life. Try a pair of bright shoes, a handbag or some other bright accessories to add some colour.
And, if you’re a little more daring, take it up a notch with a bright coloured piece of clothing like a hot pink statement skirt.
The folded clutch
Perfect for daywear or a night on the town, accompany any outfit with a folded clutch for sleek spring style. If you’re not typically a fan on the clutch, many come with an accompanying strap so you can conveniently transform it into an over-the-shoulder bag. Don’t be fooled by their deceiving size, most clutches are very functional and can fit all of your everyday necessities. Have some fun with fabrics too; try a leather, suede or faux fur clutch for something a little different.
Light, flowing scarves
Get rid of those chunky knitted scarves that kept you warm all through winter, it’s time to bring out the light colourful ones for Spring! Scarves are the perfect budget-friendly accessory to add something more to your look. Jazz it up with bold animal prints, or relax your look and choose something light in a pastel colour.
Don’t forget the hat
Hats aren’t the easiest accessory to pull off, so luckily there are plenty of options! Choose a straw hat, rather than a woollen or knitted hat for a breezier, more summery look. Don’t be afraid to add a hat to your daywear (they shouldn’t just be saved for the beach!). Try a fedora if you’re feeling a little hip, or a floppy hat if you’re more of a boho chick.
Make a statement with a bold embellishment
Don’t be scared to bling-it-up! Whether it’s with subtle statements or extreme detailing, after hibernating in winter, Spring is the time to shine. Eye-catching embellishments can be as simple as selecting an item with a beaded collar or 3D lace…but remember, the key to pulling off this look is moderation. Be confident, and rock this bold look.
