It’s finally Spring… I think – the British weather might be saying otherwise. Amidst the the thunder storms the days of sunshine have really got me excited for those warmer months. I thought I’d catch up with you and explain a little about my style evolution this year. Autumnal fashion has always been a favourite of mine. I love layering different types of fabric and it’s where I feel my fashion game is naturally at it’s strongest.
Spring is such a difficult wardrobe to master – the weather is just so unpredictable. You want the fresh light colours but still want to stay mildly warm. The shops all seem to jump from Winter straight to Summer so I find that this time of year we can all feel a little lost in the style department.
Call me a fashion addict but I’ve been doing a lot of research lately diving into the Vogue archives to really hone in and perfect my Spring style – hopefully giving you some inspiration too!
Last year I was definitely opting for shorter hemlines and bright floral patterns. For SS19 I want more demure lines – lower hemlines and very elegant silhouettes. Maxi and calf length skirts have a bigger appeal to me these days to create a more classic look.
I’ve also come to realise the importance of accessories – in particular jewellery. The power of a fabulous earring should never be underestimated. Statement earrings can really turn a plain outfit into something designer-esque. Stacking watches and bangles has always been a trademark of mine – inspired by the Dior bracelet stack seen timelessly across all their editorials.
It’s no secret that I have a bit of a belt obsession. I just think that a belt not only creates a beautiful silhouette but also creates interest too. Playing around with belts is a lot of fun – you can also turn old items in your wardrobe into something new by just adding a belt. I’ve added a rope belt to this dress but tying it around blazers creates a really fab look too.
So let’s talk about this look! It embodies so many of my favourite things – a fedora for starters hasn’t left my head for the past month – completely inspired by the AW19 Chanel show. It’s also perfect for people like me who burn really easily and fab for third day hair! A white maxi dress has such elegance and class about it. The cut of this reminds be of the south of France – that Cannes (I’ve just stepped off my yacht) vibe.
Bamboo bags – originated from Gucci and trickled down to the highstreet. Bamboo, straw and wooden bags are my Spring essentials. The different textures of my accessories really bring the plain white dress to life.
