  1. Make use of light layers

Time to give up the bulky wooly jumpers and go for a warmer and more spring-inspired approach. Spring is the best time to use layering to your advantage. Spring clothing is light and may not be able to withstand the cold. Layer your outfits with pieces made of materials that are warmer. Materials like cashmere or merino do great for those cold spring days.

 

  1. Rock your boots

In cold weather you have to keep those feet warm and no footwear achieves that better than boots. The warm fuzzy lining of the boots can keep the cold from coming in. The best part is that boots are stylish. Go for light coloured boots like tan, light grey or blush. The light colour complements the spring vibe.

 

  1. Wear a maxi skirt

Who said you can’t wear a skirt in the cold? Maxi skirts make a fine addition to the spring outfits. The reason is simple – on those particularly cold spring days, you can wear a pair of tights under the maxi skirt to keep warm. No one needs to know.

 

  1. Opt for jackets instead of coats

Coats are a huge reminder of the winter, but you don’t have to worry about wearing a coat when it’s cold outside. There are other warm alternatives you can swap your coats with. Blazers, bomber jackets and leather jackets make better spring alternatives for those cold spring days.

 

  1. Make denim your friend

Denim is a staple in the wardrobe even in the cold spring. The denim material is quite warm especially denim jackets. They look cool and laid back and they can provide the extra warmth most spring outfits can’t give. If you don’t have a denim jacket in your closet, make sure you get one this spring.

 

  1. Wear scarves

Scarves are elegant but most of all they keep your neck warm in a light way, which is perfect for the spring weather. Play around with colours that complement or add some contrast to your ensemble. But instead of a wooly scarf, opt for cashmere, merino or cotton. They are warm and stylish too.

 

  1. Add one spring item at a time

As much as you want to wear your spring clothing as soon as the first signs of spring emerge, it is wiser to transition into the new season one clothing item at a time. When the warmer spring weather kicks in you would have fully transitioned to spring clothing.

Summer is here, is your wardrobe ready?

As the snow thaws and everyone begins to look toward summer, it’s easy to forget about the contents of one’s closet. For months now you’ve been bundled up against the elements, layering clothes and longing for the sun. You’re tired of the cold months stretching on seemingly without end, and now that the end is finally in sight it’s easy to get excited. Summer time is always a fun time.

As you plan summer trips and outdoor excursions, don’t forget that you need to dress for the weather. Flowing fabrics, shorter hemlines and colourful prints are hitting the shops as the last of the frost disappears and the sun starts to stay out longer.

Summer time is a great excuse to go shopping and pick up summer clothes in new and updated prints, colors and materials. Keep yourself cool and comfortable this summer with these essential summer staples.

 

Don’t skip on the white

White clothes are immensely popular in the summer, as they keep you cool while offering a lot of versatility. White tanks and tees, for example, pair very well with just about any skirt, short or pant in your closet.

Swap out your boots for some sweet sandals

Sweaty feet are no fun, so cramming your tootsies into a stifling pair of boots all summer long might have you feeling a bit grouchy. Opt instead for a pair of sandalsto suit your style. Straps, heels, clasps and colorful accents make it easy to find a pair (or three) that you’ll adore all summer long.

 

Replace your miniskirts with midi skirts

There is certainly a time and place for leg-baring minis, but midi skirts offer a bit more coverage that makes them a perfect summer staple for any occasion. From the boardroom to brunch and beyond, midi skirts will keep you cool and confident as you strut around in effortless style.

 

Don’t ditch the denim

Denim shortshave been parts of the iconic summer look for decades because they are ultra-comfortable and can be dressed up or down to suit your style needs. A white tee on top makes for a great casual look, while a button-up blouse can dial the style up a notch for those fun summer outings with friends.

 

Combine comfort and style with a maxi dress

Tight clothes aren’t the most comfortable on the hottest days of the year. A maxi dress offers you salvation from the discomfort with all of the coverage that you need to feel confident wherever you go. Long, flowing materials keep things breezy in a slew of colors and patterns that are sure to please.

 

Upgrade your sunglass game

The perfect pair of shades is the best and easiest way to finish off any summer look. Practicality and style mesh effortlessly in some beautiful sunglass frames these days, so there’s a frame for every day of the week!

 

Add accessories

Accessories like rings and bracelets are very important to turn on the style. A pave diamond ring on your finger can enhance the beauty of your well-manicured hand. A necklace will make your neck strikingly beautiful. So choose your accessories properly.

Summer is all about comfort, but it’s easier than ever before to stay comfy while rocking impeccable, effortless style!

How to Style Polka Dots this Spring

Polka dots are fast becoming a fashion statement. They add fun and playfulness to our outfits. As influencers and celebrities show up more in their polka dot ensembles, it’s only natural to expect more polka dot outfits this spring. So how will you style polka dots this spring?

It seems like the fashion conscious have caught a wind of how versatile polka dots outfits can be. Whether you wear them at formal occasions, to work or causal outings, polka dots have proven to be a must-have item in your wardrobe.

Since we’re anticipating more polka dots this season, here are ways to style them.

Pair polka dots with a solid coloured piece

This is an age-old unfailing rule when it comes to styling polka dot clothing items. Pair your polka dot top with solid coloured pattern-less bottoms, like a skirt or trousers and you can never go wrong.

The fashion favourite is the monochrome – black and white polka dots layered on solid black or solid white. Red polka dots are also a fashion favourite and if you stick to this rule you’ll have yourself a well-put together outfit.

 

Pair polka dots with other patterns

This may seem counter-intuitive with the first tip, but I have observed how 2018 fashion is tilting towards a bold and adventurous theme. And that includes styling with polka dots. Although it breaks the ancient rule of matching polka dots with solid colours, this combination adds a lot of creativity to your outfit.

Play around with pairing polka dots with other patterns like stripes or checks to add some adventure and edginess to your outfit.

 

Style with bright and cold colours

Polka dots do really well not only with the famous black and while. They work great with bright colours like yellow and orange which perfectly depicts the spring time.

Don’t be afraid to go bold and venture into more yellows, oranges, bright blues and pinks. Pair them with your polka dots pieces to add a lot of fun and playfulness with the bright and bold background. It works perfectly either way whether it is a bright top or bottom.

 

Embrace polka dot one-piece clothing

Spring has an easy laid back vibe which people express in their choice of clothing. A good example is easy to slip on clothing like maxi dresses and jumpsuits.

This is an ensemble not many women are comfortable pulling off because of the overwhelming number of polka dots. However, you can always break the pattern with a fashionable solid coloured hat, a pair of boots or heels, a waist belt or a clutch purse.

 

Compliment your outfit with polka dot accessories

Polka dots are not only fashionable with clothing items, they look amazing as accessories. Polka dots are always eye-catching so even a touch of polka dots can make your outfit stand out.

For low neck top, layer a polka dot scarf. If you’re wearing solid colours all through, compliment them with a polka dot handbag or clutch purse. Those are enough to inject fun into your outfits.

 

Layer over jeans

Another classic is complimenting a polka dot top with a pair of jeans. This combination never grows old. It’s relaxed and casual; just perfect for the springtime. You can also add more denim like a denim jacket over a polka dot top to nail that playful yet relaxed look.
