Get Your Spring Fashion Essentials

Like I said, I went shopping for some spring fashion essentials the other day. I got some pairs of spring floral trousers, leggings and some blouses as well. The weather has been so warm here, and I needed some new pairs of trousers to stay cool and comfy. Getting your spring fashion essentials should be the first thing you to get ready for the new season in style. Here are some items you could go shopping for to get your wardrobe trendy –

 

  • Maxi Skirts and Sundresses – These are super comfy to wear and they are usually very easy to style. I have a few in my wardrobe at the moment and I wear them so much. They are just want you need to have on when the weather gets dead warm. Go for pieces in spring prints like florals, stripes and polka dots.

 

  • Shorts – I love having a few pair of shorts in my wardrobe for spring and summer. They come in very handy for when it gets really warm.

 

  • Sandals – It is always good to get a few pairs of sandals and flip flops for the spring/summer season. I have been wearing flip-flops all week because it has been really warm here in Cheshire. If there is one thing you shop for this season, it should be some new pairs of sandals. A good pair of sandals came change the whole look of an outfit.

 

  • Cardigans – You should have light cardigans in your wardrobe for when the days or nights get a little chilly, and you need a light coverup. Having a few in bright colours would definitely come in handy.

 

  • Sleeveless Tops and Colourful Accessories – These are definitely spring staples to have if you want to stay stylish. The right accessories can wake up any outfit and spring is all about bright colours, so ensure you go for bright colourful accessories. Sleeveless tops are just what you need to have on when the weather gets too warm and you need to stay decent.

Stick To Light Layers

Spring is a season for light layers. So ditch the heavy coats, cardigans and the rest of your autumn/winter clothing. In other to be trendy and comfy, you need to wear breathable fabrics in bright colours. Depending on where you live, light layers should work just for fine for you this season. A light cardigan may come in handy when the temperature drops and if it doesn’t, it is easy to pop it in a bag or around your was it. I like to mix and match pieces in with different prints and texture to create a stylish look.

 

Add Bright Accessories

Another fashion tip for spring is adding bright accessories. Accessories have the power to make or break any look. They are usually cheaper to invest in, so if you are on a budget but want to look trendy, you can update your accessories collection. The right accessories can easily switch up a basic look, so don’t underestimate the power of accessories. You can try updating your look with a floral scarf, or a bright coloured pair of sandals.

How to style an outfit for special occasions

When it comes to special occasions like weddings and birthdays, you have to make sure you get your outfit right. The last thing you want is to go over dressed and annoy the celebrant or go under dressed and looks scruffy. Here are some fashion and style tips you may find useful when styling an outfit for a special occasion.

Stick to the dress code

Always ensure you find out what the dress code is before styling your outfit. You don’t want to wear a pair of jeans or a denim skirt to a black tie event. Make sure you also check for colour codes just incase. The key to dressing to special occasions is to look smart and decent. That usually works. You can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

 

Don’t upstage the celebrant

Like I previously mentioned, upstaging the bride/celebrant won’t do you any favours so make sure you don’t go over dressed. Stick to the dress code and colour codes, and ensure you don’t wear any over the top clothing or accessories. You don’t want the attention on you on the celebrant’s special day. For example, don’t wear a white dress to a wedding unless it is a background colour to a pattern.

 

Dress in tune with the seasons

Pay attention to the seasonal shades of fashion and style your outfit in those shades in mind. For example, dark berry colours mixed with blacks and greys go well in the winter season. So you could opt for a berry dress (ensure colours are in line with the dress codes if any) with black accessories.

 

Have a stylish cover up at the ready

Wearing a strapless dress is all well and good until it gets chilly. Have a stylish cover up at the ready will be a life saver. So make sure you have one.

 

Get a winter coat

If you are attending the event in winter, ensure you have a good statement coat ready. You don’t want to hide your stunning outfit under an ugly coat. Go for a lovely striking coat in a block colour that suits your outfit.

 

The right heels

You should opt for shoes/sandals that go well with your outfit and the event. It is more stylish to wear a dress with a pair of heels rather than flats, but go for the right type of heel for you. You need to be able to walk properly in them and feel comfortable.

Helena Bonham Carter Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2016

The soon to be 50-year-old talented actress; Helena Bonham Carter is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2016 issue and she is looking surprisingly good on it. This is the best look I have ever seen of Helena and I am loving it. I love the outfit and the pose with the cute white Rabbit. The background is also spectacular, it captures everything Helena Bonham Carter represents.

The interesting looking cover lady wears Alberta Ferretti dress, Dents gloves, Alexander McQueen hairpins, Gillian Horsup earrings and Fleur du Mal bunny ears. This picture was photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar.

In this issue, Helena discusses love, loss and living next-door to the ex, she just broke up with her long time partner – Tim Burton.

Here, Helena Bonham Carter wears Giles Deacon Couture dress. Marco di Vincenzo boots, De Grisogono ring, Gillian Horsup earrings and Butler & Wilson metal brooch (worn in hair). This picture was also photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar.

Although, I still think Helena is a Fashion Criminal, I mean she wore different colours of shoes to the 2011 Golden Globes for crying out loud, BUT she slayed this photo shoot. She looks nothing like her age, and she has never been under the knife before. I would love to look like her when I grow up!

Here, Helena wears Stella McCartney dress, Burberry Prorsum coat, Piers Atkinson cat mask and Gillian Horsup earrings. Her outfit is styled by Miranda Almond and photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar. I can feel her love for animals in this issue, and it is quite contagious. That Cat is the highlight of this subscriber’s Cover, in my opinion.

I love this magazine cover but I don’t think I will be buying it if I am being 100% honest. I have no interest in Helena, apart from her beauty secrets, and I don’t see them tallking about such a vain subject, lol.

What are your thoughts? Will you be buying?
