The sun’s out and school is coming to a close, which means it’s time to get your wardrobe ready for spring and summer.
The drop waist dress has returned, echoing a ‘20s feel. This style works great if you’re tall, and will elongate your torso.
Add some chunky platform shoes or a cork wedge sandal to dress this piece up for those summer nights out.
This season the cropped blazer is a great pick to add some interest to jeans and a tank top.
With shorter sleeves and a shortened torso, this piece is waist-defining and will slim any silhouette. Try this blazer in one of this season’s pastel colours, like lavender, peach, blush pink or light teal.
If you’re a fan of pattern, then head out on a hunt for florals. As flowers begin to pop up in the garden, they will on clothes. This is a very versatile pattern, and can be found on short to floor-length dresses, blazers, tops and even pants.
Don’t go overboard with this pattern, and only stick to one floral piece per outfit, making that the focus of your look.
Try a sheer button-up tank in this warmer weather. This piece will be sure to add a little edge to your outfit. The button-up sheer is great worn tucked into jeans with a pair of heels to give you some height.
Try this shirt in a classic black or an off-white, and you’ll be sure to have a go-to outfit this season.
Colour is always huge as the weather warms up, but this year it’s all about putting the emphasis on your bottom half. Brightly coloured jeans are hitting every store, and the options are endless. From fuchsia to tie-dye, you’ll be sure to find a pair that fits your comfort level.
Don’t be afraid to be a little bold and pair some orange bottoms with a floral shirt.
You’ll be making a fantastic statement.
For the finishing touches, gold jewellery is a must. Look for long, dangly earrings, chunky gold rings and shiny gold bangles.
Protect your eyes with a pair of retro-style sunglasses in either a classic brown or a bright shade of peppermint green.
