As we slide into spring, the first thing on every fashionista’s mind is new-season style. Before you start stripping off your layers and preparing to soak up the sun, it’s important to ensure that your wardrobe is updated accordingly. Here are 11 new pieces worth investing in for your spring wardrobe!
Culottes are the perfect go-to pants. Exceptionally versatile and always comfortable, you can never go wrong with a simple pair of culottes. The best part? They’re comfy as hell.
BASIC WHITE SHIRT
A good white button-up is the ultimate style staple. This shirt is easily accessorised, effortlessly chic and is a welcome addition to every woman’s wardrobe, whatever the season.
It might seem strange to suggest investing in a jacket as the weather finally starts to heat up, but a basic bomber is trans-seasonal. Tie it around your waist or sling it over your shoulder for an added element of edge or until needed.
The super shiny and oh-so-sexy slip dress has had a resurgence in recent months. But this season, strip off the layer of fur and leather and show off some skin in a sexy, springtime slip. Side note: it’s finally an excuse to wear your pyjamas outside – win!
MODERN DENIM JACKET
"But I already have a denim jacket," you say. Well, we’re not talking about your run-of-the-mill coat here; the new denim jacket is white, not blue – and did I mention boyfriend style?
The statement piece of the season is, without a doubt, the off-the-shoulder top. Opt for dusty pink or bold, blue stripes for a pop of colour and show off your new-found tan with the super-cute strapless structure.
Not only do they exude a cute nautical vibe, stripes are unwaveringly flattering. Add some interest to a simple denim look with a neutral striped tee or go for broke in some cheeky blue striped shorts.
I know what you’re thinking: "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." But despite that Miranda Priestly quote and their not-so-stylish reputation, a light, flower-clad dress is the perfect way to add an element of femininity and colour to an otherwise monochromatic closet.
Ah, slides. The simplest of shoes. A basic pair of slides is a saving grace come swim season. Wear them with almost any outfit and kick them off on the sand – perfect!
As we start to venture outdoors to make the most of our gorgeous spring weather, a backpack is both an accessory and a necessity. Opt for something cute and convenient. It’s the best of both worlds, right, Hannah?
It goes without saying that a bikini is a Spring/Summer must-have. Select something to suit your shape and personal style. My top tip: go for something neutral so you can wear it for seasons to come.
