Stepping into Spring: How To Nail This Season’s Trends
It might look like spring has sprung but there’s definitely still a chill in the air which always results in some wardrobe dilemmas. You’re keen to pack away your polo necks, puffas and winter boots for the year, but not quite ready to brave it in your summer threads. Sound familiar?
Taking your wardrobe from winter to spring can be tricky but with some clever layering and colour matching you can easily create stylish looks that will see you through to the summer holidays. Here are some tips from the fashionistas at Bullring & Grand Central for perfect transitional dressing:
The midi dress is bang on trend and is so versatile. Whether you opt for a slinky camisole or shirt dress style, in bold animal prints or tonal shades, the length makes it a perfect match for knee highs or ankle boots if you want to flash a bit of leg. The lightweight fabric of this on-trend Karen Millen leopard dress makes it perfect for layering – throw a neutral polo neck underneath until the temperatures soar and pair with a classic trench and mini cross-body bag.
Team pretty printed dresses with denim and athleisure accessories for the perfect layered up spring look. The pastel tones of this pink, silky Zara dress match perfectly with a light-wash denim jean and fresh white trainers. To complete the relaxed vibe, team with an oversized grey marl hoodie as an alternative to a heavy coat. This dress is also perfect for dressing up or down – try teaming with a leather jacket, studded clutch and heeled ankle boot for eveningwear with an edge.
This season, bold is the new black and colour clashing is in. It’s worth investing in a statement dress in a bold and bright colour – opt for a timeless shape like classic wrap dress or simple A-line style for maximum wearability like this Reiss number. If one pop of colour is enough, team your dress with a black waist belt and simple court shoe or barely-there strapped sandal and add a bright lipstick in a contrasting tone. Feeling brave? Mix and match your colours for head-turning style – reds and purples are the colour match of the season.
