So many outfits, so little time! If you’re looking for a little style inspiration then look no further than this month’s 12 stylish ladies. Now that we’re definitely in the midst of warmer springtime weather it’s time to start putting the last remnants of our winter wardrobe into hibernation and start embracing the lighter, breezier looks that this new season brings. Whether you’re looking for a way to elevate a casual look or revamp an outfit with just the right on point accessories there are plenty of ideas here to help make getting dressed so much easier. A wardrobe refresh is just a scroll away…
Try a cropped sleeve blazer
White jeans, a tee and a blazer is a classic outfit combination but that you can carry into spring with the addition of a 3/4 length jacket. It’s a little lighter and more in keeping with the season than it’s full length counterpart.
Have fun with a slogan tee
Whether it’s a quirky phrase or just emblazoned with one of your favourite things (who doesn’t love french fries?) adding an interesting slogan tee to your look says you’re not afraid to have a little fun with fashion.
Embrace a slim tapered pant
A pair of pinstriped pants looks even more chic when they are cut with a slight taper. Keep the rest of your look sleek by pairing it with a top in the same colour and adding a hint of colour to add an element of interest.
Introduce a wide leg pant into your wardrobe
A pair of cropped wide leg pants (especially in white) is a great alternative to your favourite jeans. Easy to pair with everything from a casual tee to a dressy cami and a pair of flats or heels, this is one wardrobe staple this season that will get plenty of wear.
Pay attention to the finishing touches
Sometimes a look is made by the finishing touches. In the case of this 6os inspired ensemble the white pussy bow blouse, blazer with pearl buttons and structured top handle bag are the icing on the cake.
Downsize your accessories
It’s time to give your roomy tote a rest and embrace pint-sized accessories such as this mini top handle bag. There’s something quite chic about being the kind of woman who can carry her essentials in such a diminutive bag.
Pair a dress with a bomber jacket
It pays to pair the unexpected. In this case a spotted midi dress is toughened up a little by teaming it with a monochrome bomber jacket. It’s a feminine look that is made more day-appropriate with a topper that has a more casual feel.
Wear black from head to toe
Yes, it’s not a new concept but there’s something about wearing one hue from top to toe that helps give an outfit a little edge and such a dramatic effect.
Try a colour blocked pant
The above pants have a distinctly tuxedo-like feel to them but with a more modern feel with the addition of the bright red stripe down the side. By adding pieces that have similar hues it helps give the outfit some cohesion.
Try an off the shoulder two-piece
A two-piece set always looks effortlessly chic but when it incorporates the very on trend piece of an off the shoulder top it immediately looks very of the moment.
Tuck in a wrap top
A wrap top is ever increasing in its popularity so to avoid your look being ubiquitous why not try tucking it into your pants or skirt for a different take on it. While you’re at it take note that a white wrap top when paired with a bold pant is a winning outfit combination (millenial pink sneakers an optional extra, but oh-so right).
Unleash your girly side
There’s no better time than now to wear a floral cold shoulder dress but to really embrace this ultra feminine look pair it with a ladylike top handle bag in the same hue for a look that screams polished.
