The Golden Rules To Take You Seamlessly From Winter To Spring
It’s finally starting to feel like the cold weather is behind us, but this transitional period between winter and spring can spark more than a few wardrobe dilemmas. You might be desperate to ditch the winter boots and puffa jackets and reach for your sandals and summer dresses but the temperature has other ideas…
Luckily, with a few quick wardrobe hacks, you’ll be ready to step stylishly into spring. Dresses – whatever the cut, colour or print – are big this season and are so versatile.
Check out the golden rules from the team at Highcross for finding the perfect style for you and nailing this season’s trends:
A colour palette of nudes, khakis, creams, coppers and mustards has a very premium feel. Avoid the temptation to reach for something black and think about creating a tonal look. It’s worth investing in a classic trench like this one from H&M, it’s the perfect, effortless spring coat and will instantly offer a chic update to any look.
The easiest way to make your summer dresses wearable now is to experiment with layering, like adding a simple crew neck tee or polo neck underneath in a tonal shade. Choose a dress in a lightweight fabric to avoid any lumps and bumps when you layer up – this ditzy print midi dress from New Look is perfect now and will be a great addition to your holiday wardrobe too.
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 shift dress or simple A-line style for maximum wearability like this number from New Look. 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 – yellows, oranges and pinks go particularly well together.
Pretty with an edge
Give feminine silhouettes and soft floaty fabrics an upgrade with an athleisure twist. Pair printed midi dresses with white trainers for a cool but casual look and instead of reaching for a jacket, grab an oversized hoody instead – comfort and style combined. These statement trainers from Topshop are bang on trend and will certainly make an impact but for something more timeless, check out Converse or Adidas’ classic Stan Smith style in Schuh.
