3 INSTANT WARDROBE UPDATES FOR SPRING

 

As the clocks move forward and the sunshine has finally arrived we're peeling off our cashmere and thermals and giving our day to day looks a little spring update. We're loving a lot of the trends for the season ahead but there are three that have been winning the race lately and slotting in to our daily wardrobes perfectly. 

1. GINGHAM

 We struggled to get on board with this at first as it conjured up flash backs to our primary school uniforms and picnic blankets but gingham has hit the high street in a big way and is reaching fever pitch. It's not a print we'd suggest wearing head to toe but when mixed in with boyish basics the little checks are making a great alternative to our usual breton stripes. We're also loving this print on swimwear and kaftans.

THE GROWN UP EDIT - Gingham

1. MANGO £29.99

2. J CREW £62

3. J CREW were £44 now £30

4. WAREHOUSE £29

5. TOPSHOP £49


2. STATEMENT EARRINGS

Having dabbled in this trend slightly over the last year or so we're now officially obsessed. Earrings have taken over our jewellery stands and we want them as oversized and shoulder grazing as possible. We like to wear ours with a grey tee and denim for an instant outfit update.

THE GROWN UP EDIT - Statement Earrings

1. ZARA £12.99

2. COS £15

3. H&M £4.99

4. ISABEL MARANT @ NET A PORTER £180

5. MANGO £15.99


3. BACKLESS LOAFERS

The loafer is still holding the crown as the day time shoe of choice but with a backless variation for spring. A great trans-seasonal option when our boots and trainers are boring us to tears but we're not quite in to sandal weather just yet. They add a huge dose of laid back chicness to day dresses, denim and even tailoring too.
