Spring is in the air. Evenings are lighter, the skies are bluer and morale, as a hole is noticeably higher.
"It's time to start peeling back the chunky layers and Spring cleaning your style for the season a head."
There's some what of a slump once the festivities of Winter are out of the way and restlessness for warmer months sets in. It's time to start peeling back the chunky layers and Spring cleaning your style for the season a head.
A STYLE SORT OUT
As the temperature becomes milder, I start to look at my wardrobe in a different way. What won't see the light of day in the next few months, heavy fabrics, cable knits and chelsea boots. I start by pulling these items to the front of my wardrobe as I delve into the tight space over the next few weeks. Then they are in one handy place ready for culling in to vacuum packs and popped in the already bursting attic. I label them by catagory, year and season to make it easy to reintroduce when the weather permits their reintroduction.
PLAN THE TRENDS
Not every trend will work for you, your style, your wardrobe and your look. I like to ensure there are as few wardrobe faux pas as possible by giving the trends we saw at the previous fashion month a revisit and seeing which one works for me.
The trend I am fully embracing right now is the ruffle trend but keeping in line with my feminine tailored style with clean crisp fabrics and structured silhouettes.
It's time to let go of the items that haven't seen the love they deserve in your wardrobe because lets face it, not many of us have a wardrobe like Mariah, space is valuable and being able to see what you have in your wardrobe even more so.
There's nothing worse than getting to the end of a season and finding, squished at the back of your wardrobe, the most perfect season appropriate pair of jeans, which you had completely forgot you owned.
One thing I am really trying to do this season is step outside of my comfort zone. I'm thinking colour and lots of it. In the past my Spring seasonal palette has been safe to say the least with whites and denims and not a lot else. This season I'm taking the plunge and introducing some real colour to my wardrobe and I'm going to try to do it in a tasteful way which suits my style, but watch this space, it could all go horribly wrong!
RESTOCK THE GOODSTUFF
White shirts, jersey basics and good underwear! I filmed a video this weekend and it became pretty obvious that I was in dire need of the latter. Spring/Summer is the season of sheer fabrics, light colours and flattering shapes so what goes under our clothes is just as important, it's time to invest in our underwear and that's something I never thought I'd find myself typing.
But there are wardrobe staples that I simply cannot go without in Spring and that is a wide selection of fresh white basics, I'm loving having a good selection of these shirts from ASOS in my wardrobe so that my whites are always perfect.
