What to do with your winter wardrobe…

We take a look at what trends to dig out for spring and which should be put away for a later date.

Things to think about putting away;

  • Jewel colours. Spring/summer is all about beautiful pastel shades
  • Shoulder pads, we want our summer wardrobe to be a little more feminine please
  • Fur coats. If recent temperatures are anything to go by, we’ll be saving them for next winter too!
  • Swap winter’s heavy red lipstick for nude tones
  • Black. We know it’s a lot of people’s favourite colour and we can’t live without our staple items in black, but this season try brightening up your mood as well as your look with some more colourful pieces

Things to keep out/dig out;

The classic trench coat

The classic trench coat

  • The classic trench coat. The perfect style to carry us out of winter and into warmer weather, sometime soon we hope!
  • Keep the sequined bling from winter but wear dressed down during the day to change the look.
  • Metallics are also on trend for spring too, same rule applies, wear during the day/to the office for the wow factor.
  • Underwear worn as outerwear. This spring we predict that you will love your underwear so much, you just won’t want to cover it up!
  • Anything military style. Double breasted buttoning and military detailing should see you happily into spring
  • Now the only thing left to do is to find some space in our wardrobes to squeeze our January sales bargains in there too!

    New jeans…

    Denim is a big trend this season and when it’s being worn from head to toe, we want to know how to wear our jeans in light of this denim craze. So here are the 3 key jean trends for spring;

    Carrot jeans – yes, you heard us right. This style of jean are named so as they have a high waist, fill out at the hips then narrow down to the ankle, much like, well the shape of a carrot! They work well for slim waists and look great with heels for a dressed up casual look. They can however drown a petite frame, depending on the size of the heels of course!

    Harem jeans – super soft denim is used to create the draping effect of one of our favourite styles of last summer. Jean harems however have a much edgier look than the trouser variety. They are more constructed, have more detailing but are just as comfortable. Wear dressed up with this seasons peep toe shoe boots or dressed down with pumps and a simple tee.

    Trouser jeans – this trend takes inspiration from some of the latest trouser styles; high waists, wide legs and pleating. The use of light weight denim helps to achieve these styles and makes them a great, yet smart alternative to trousers. This style will also suit just about every shape and size!

    The perfect companion for these fashion forward jeans is a simple cami or vest top, this way the focus remains on the denim. Our essential strappy tops come with an integral bra for the support you need without putting up with showing bra straps. Or for a bit of added glam, our slinky alterneck with jewelled neckline should do the trick! Fitted tees also work well, especially with looser fitting jeans such as the harem or wide leg style. And remember, a nude tee-shirt bra worn underneath a white tee will disappear but a white bra will still be visible so the choice is yours, play it discreet or flaunt it?!
