Spring. It’s probably our favourite season because we still have all of summer to look forward to! OK, maybe our second favourite then. From a fashion point of view, however, it’s heaven.
When else do you get to match your sunglasses with your favourite coat? Wear a blazer over a playsuit? Team a long sleeve top with shorts? Or casually use your new bomber as a cape? We love pairing our spring / summer buys with warmer layers on top on days when you don’t quite know what to expect from the weather. This might be an obvious one but ensuring that your fabrics match as well as your colours is absolute key.
It’s also a good time to spring clean your wardrobe to allow space for all the bright new things you want to introduce into your closet. The web is flooded with blog posts on how to go about detoxing your wardrobe. The golden rule seems to be that anything you haven’t worn in over a year needs to go. Oh really, must we? Throwing your clothes out can be a bit daunting, so you can cheat by storing all your not-worn-in-a-year bits away in a box and labelling them with an expiry date. Once you return to your box later on, you’ll be surprised how many of the items you’ve completely forgotten about, and it will be much easier to decide which of them you’re ready to donate and which very small fraction can safely make it back into your closet. This trick often works better because you’ll end up putting more into the box than you would if you had to let go of them right away.
Whatever you decide to do with your closet (buying a bigger one also works, yay!) – ensure that you’re making enough space for this season’s hot new pieces. We’re seeing a lot of bare legs, sunglasses, denim (boyfriends, shorts, distressed) and beautiful blazers that top off stunning styles. Check out our Spring Edit with the latest looks from celebrities including Miranda Kerr, Beyonce and Karolina Kurnikova and fashion bloggers Song Of Style, Camille Over The Rainbow, The Blonde Salad and many more that include Self Service brands Wildfox, Finders Keepers, Jaggar, The Fifth, Genetic and LNA.
