Capsule Wardrobe - Spring
Spring is finally here! As we welcome back the sun it is the perfect time to start investing in some key pieces that will take you through the season until summer. Although it will (hopefully) begin to get warmer, there will still be cold and rainy days, so it is important that you still hold onto some of your winter wardrobe through spring.
Here are 5 items to add this spring!
1. A lighter Jacket or Coat
Essential for the chilly mornings and evenings, a lighter jacket or coat will allow you to wear less bulky clothes and still be warm enough when the sun sets. Styles such as a denim jacket or a trench coat/duster coat are perfect for keeping you warm and still compliment many outfits.
2. Thinner Jumpers
After being drowned in thick knits all winter most of us will want to steer clear of jumpers, however there is definitely a place for them in our spring wardrobes. Lighter coloured thin turtlenecks or looser jumpers look good paired under a denim or corduroy pinafore/dress or alternatively with jeans and a denim jacket. Thin jumpers are perfect for layering too which means that you can adjust your outfits according to the temperature.
3. Basic Black Jeans
Spring is the perfect time to invest in a new pair of jeans, particularly black, as these should take you through the rest of the season (until the lighter, looser, ripped denim is on trend) and into autumn/
For footwear, winter is usually the time for boots and darker colours. As spring begins, consider adding a lighter coloured trainer into your wardrobe to add a more casual feel to your outfits. Obviously, the spring season brings inevitable rain showers so don’t put your more practical shoes away yet!
Although most people have t-shirts in their wardrobe already, it is a good time to sort through them and decide which ones you actually wear, what you need to replace and what you need to add. Basic black, white and grey tees are so useful to pair with loads of different outfits, so are essential to have in your wardrobe. When purchasing any t-shirt, it is important to consider the quality/longevity and overall style of the fit.
