After the deluge that was February, March has bought with it some better weather , and even a little bit of sunshine, and this means our thoughts are finally turning to Spring. The shops are definitely looking a little more Spring like, with pretty Spring floral prints, lighter fabrics and jackets also making an appearance as the jumpers start to appear on the sales rails.
If you are looking to update your wardrobe, here are a few pointers that will freshen up your look.
Statement sleeves are everywhere this Spring. Ruffles, frills, see through styles, oversized puff styles. it is all about the sleeve. The great news is that tops with statement styles look great for a range of looks. They dress up jeans and trainers, look brilliant with a leather/’pleather’ skirt or trousers, and can even be worn under a pinafore or dungarees.
New Look, Zara and H&M are definitely the go to stores for affordable statement sleeves of every variety. These are the perfect way to update your wardrobe in the prettiest way.
Apple Watch Straps
Apple Smartwatches are a statement in themselves, and for many now an indispensable part of our lives, but the style can often feel more functional than fashionable. One way of changing this is by changing the strap. Apple Watch Straps offer a range of gorgeous styles, including chrome, leather and rose gold embellished styles that can make your Apple smartwatch into a fashion piece that can fit in better with your wardrobe.
It is often said to be the decade that style forgot, but this season, the 1970’s and its colours and prints are having a moment. I’m not talking about flares and kipper ties, but the more stylish options, the midi skirts paired with boots or wedge heels, the khaki dresses and safari styles, large sunglasses and flowing scarves.
Get your inspiration from films like The Eyes of Laura Mars, Klute and Network, the style of Faye Dunaway, Diane Keaton and Lauren Hutton. Add a denim jumpsuit to your wardrobe, and look out for original button thru skirts in charity shops and vintage stores. Mustard is a great colour for spring and was a great favourite in the 70’s and works so well with both black and denim.
Remember, the 70’s is no longer the decade that style chose to take a break in.
