Is it just me or is it particularly challenging to now what to wear at the moment? Toasty temperatures are met with torrential downpours and I find myself sweltering in knits or freezing in pumps. Spring is probably my least favourite season to dress for at the best of times but this neither here nor there weather is causing a satirical nightmare. I always make a point of ignoring spring trends, and trends in general in favour of timeless pieces that will stand the test of time. But this year’s catwalk reports are finally a movement I can get on board with!
From tonal outfits to muted animal prints, this year’s spring trends don’t require a credit card blowout or out-of-budget shopping spree, just a well tuned eye and the willingness to refresh those old wardrobe faithfuls. With a big focus on sustainability right now, I’m definitely trying to be more conscious about what I’m buying and how much I’m consuming, especially for those awkward in-between seasons. I’d prefer to save my pennies for a few summer investment buys that give me more cost per wear and just add a small statement piece for spring that will last for seasons to come. And luckily, that’s totally doable according to the new spring trends.
So, if you want to transition your wardrobe without breaking the bank, these select buys will be bang not he money for the new season….
Beige boots are a new spring trend I didn’t know that I needed until I bought a pair. With black, brown, red and burgundy ankle boots in my wardrobe, I couldn’t work out why I was having such a hard time piecing together my spring outfits until I got these!
On chilly days, lightweight denim is an itch I can’t stop scratching. Lightly washed and high waisted, my go-to’s are straight legs or mom jeans (never thought I’d buy into those!) paired with a kitten heel slingback or muted pumps.
Glossy buckles, practical sizes and luxe-looking materials, the high street is really coming into its own when it comes to swoon-worthy bags. Swap the trend-led statement buys for totes that stand the test of time with these spring must-haves.
Autumn and winter may be THE seasons for stylish cover-ups but spring has some amazing designs to pull together a casual outfit. Think linen blazers, boxy denim and classic trenches to give a casual outfit a stand-out addition.
Let’s face it, it is the UK after all and while we rejoice at the first sign of sunshine, we’re still going to freeze our arses off come 3pm. Team bare legs and feet-baring pumps with a cosy knit that can last multiple seasons.
