The sun is teasing us – it is actually making appearances but the super chill in the air means my body is still in a wintery mood.
However, my mind is saying GO! to spring!
I cannot wait for my SS15 wardrobe to be full bloom into the streets of London.
Here is what you will certainly see me wearing; all high street picks and some bargains:
Forget little ones, go large. Big flower prints are the thing. Top, bottom, feet, hair… everywhere.
Oooh, Sophia Webster… no words necessary for the Amazona sandals…
And how cute and summery is this Topshop dress?
My love for co-ords hasn’t ended. In fact, with more options in the high street, it has grown. Be it jacket and trousers, skirt and jacket, top and shorts, tops and skirt. I love them all.
Think 70’s. Wider legs in trousers, paisley, off the shoulder tops, a bit more fluidity in pieces, like a sheer open front, long gilet. Earthy tones.
Do not forget your platforms – I got those pictured from New Look.
I bought these jeans from Very. They are super comfy, good fit and a bargain.
This long suede skirt from Zara is super hippy and the flowery gypsy top from H&M (I have it in black!)
goes with both items here!
We’ve done it in different pieces, now it’s also time to put it in one piece – might be a patterned top with a different pattern hem or sleeves, might be a total patchwork item!
Shoes are a good way of clashing but not being too out there, like in these Kurt Geiger Bond shoes.
Some are just downright pretty, like this Topshop dress – clashing, but discreet.
Remember Britney and Justin? We are not going that far, but denim is back in more than just trousers and shorts – think dresses, tops and dungarees, like this ASOS one!
Lace and crochet
Half bohemian, half ladylike: that’s how I see lace and crochet this season.
We are not talking “lingerie-type lace, but a more crocheted type, less tulle, more stitch.
This top from River Island is great – it does have that holiday vibe and this Zara skirt is oh-so-pretty, and comes in red – a key colour for this season.
I also like this dress from AX Paris.
Delicate blush, light pink, peach and coral tones in very beautifully feminine cuts, with some draping, flowing shapes, evoking the ballerina’s practice gear. This ASOS dress is amazing, and the Miss Selfridge one is a more everyday type.
Have to tell I am not totally sold on fringes, but they seem to work in some occasions – my mum bought me AMAZING fringed boots from Schutz and I think love them to bits. So much, I made a video…
There are a few clothing pieces that are easier to incorporate in the daily wardrobe, like a fringed kimono, but I still think fringes are at its best on festivals and holidays – this skirt from H&M (bargain alert!) and top from Zara belong in the sun!
But with fringed accessories, I find more straight forward. A fringed bag, like the one from H&M, is an easy way of incorporating the trend and giving your look a bit of oomph.
What are your picks for this season? Anything you are dying to wear? Anything you won’t be seen dead in?
