Hello, spring! Whilst lighter, breezier dressing is definitely on its way we still have to navigate our way through the tricky trans-seasonal weather which means bouts of unpredictable weather, and at times, cooler temperatures. That said, it’s still a great time to explore your closet, assess what you have and get inspired for the new season (and new purchases!) ahead. I always love this time of year as it means I can start planning my looks for the upcoming warmer months—and that means lots of style inspo is very much a necessity. If you’re also facing the same situation, I’ve rounded up some majorly stylish ladies from the blogosphere to help you navigate your way to your spring/summer wardrobe.
Embrace the denim skirt
The denim skirt will become your spring/summer style staple as it’s so versatile. When paired with a ruffled blouse it elevates this casual piece into a dressier ensemble without compromising on the relaxed, effortless vibe of denim.
White and neutrals = polished
If you want a shortcut to a look that screams ‘pulled together’ enter a white shirt worked back with neutrals. Add a pair of tan slides and matching bag and it’s an easy go-to combination when you need an outfit with polish.
Add a lightweight blazer to your wardrobe
A lightweight blazer will become your fail-safe style saviour when the weather wants to change it up from cool to warm in the next few weeks. For a look that’s on-trend opt for a checked print jacket that will take ordinary denim and dial it up a notch from weekend staple to polished perfection.
Pair a wrap top with a structured bag
Take note: a crisp white wrap top and a structured shoulder bag should be making their way onto your wishlist. Throw in a great pair of jeans into the mix and you’ve got a look that ticks major sartorial boxes.
Add pops of colour
Incorporating a few pops of colour are a reliable styling trick to instantly inject a bit of energy into a simple outfit. Pink is still very much having a moment so it’s definitely worth embracing it.
Try a lightweight dress for stylish weekend casual
For weekends you can’t beat a lightweight dress. To make it interesting think prints, finishing touches such as tassels and pairing it with simple accoutrements such as wrap sandals and a neutral shoulder bag.
Mix bold patterns and hues
Go big and bold if you’re in the mood to make a statement. Choosing a striped pattern in a rich look-at-me shade is a great way to turn heads without completely going over the top. Hint: this print looks great in a matching set.
Make wide leg tailored pants and a cami a go-to
Wide leg tailored pants and a cami are a pairing that perfectly melds chic tailoring with a hint of sexiness. If you opt for soft, pastel shades it adds a feminine touch without getting too saccharine. Add a polished topknot and you’ve got yourself a winning look.
Opt for unexpected colour combinations
If you want to inject a little drama into your look consider a pair of cropped slacks in a vibrant shade. Note: dare to pair colours in unexpected colour combinations such as pink and red.
Embrace safari shades
Safari inspired shades such as khaki and olive work well together for a look that’s understated, yet adventurous. Accessories in a beautiful tan shade work particularly well with this colour combination.
Try a matching set for daytime casual
There’s just something so effortlessly stylish about a matching set. A vest with a pair of shorts is one way to do daytime casual in a truly chic way.
Invest in a black cami
A black cami is a versatile wardrobe staple as it’s so easy to pair with everything from pants to shorts and skirts. Embrace a printed skirt for an easy-peasy way to look on trend with minimal fuss.
