The Best Raincoats for Spring

Spring is still going very strong where I am. It is pretty much raining every day here and it is also very cold for May. Looking at the weather, it is shocking to see that we are still very much in Spring when it is supposed to be officially summer in the next few days. On some days, it is so cold that I forget it is May. We can get four different seasons in one day and it is quite hard to decide on what to wear when one minute it is bitterly cold, you want to reach for your gloves, and in the next few minutes, it becomes warm, you want a lighter coat. How is the weather where you are?

If you are after stylish raincoats to keep you dry this spring, you are in luck. I have been busy doing some online ‘window’ shopping and I came across these beautiful raincoats for spring:

I love this long raincoat by Cath Kidston. The polka dot design is beautiful and the colour is also one of my favourites. I love this shade of blue. This stunning coat is waterproof which is needed for spring. It is also light and easy to fold away in a pouch when it is not needed. I want this so bad.

Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and spring is around the corner. I am looking forward to the spring season. There is something about the nice spring weather that puts me in a fantastic mood. I am also very excited about Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends. The unexpected fashion trend at the moment is all about loungewear. Many of us are working and schooling at home, so loungewear is really all we need but we can add a bit more glam to this trend with the weather getting warmer.

Here are a few ideas for you to have in mind for Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends:

The Black Dress

The black dress is always a good idea for spring and summer fashion. I love having a few stylish black dresses. They work great for video calls and they are super easy to style. The piece I am wearing here is from Miss Selfridge and it is still one of my favourite black dresses. It is very comfortable and easy to style for a casual day out. I love it.

Prints are almost back in season and I am ready for it!  I am looking forward to wearing some more colourful pieces this spring. This stunning piece by Alala by Aken is one of my favourite print pieces. I love the colour and design. It is a fabulous light jacket to have around this spring/summer. I am looking forward to wearing more of it now that the warmer weather is around the corner.

Head scarf

This is one fashion trend I am really excited about. I have a couple of scarves in my wardrobe. They come in so handy for lazy hair days (which is really everyday now). I currently have eye on a few stylish scarves I am looking to get this season.  It is wonderful to know this fashion trend from the 50s and 60s is coming back in a big way this year.

Fashion Inspiration – The 80s Fashion

I was born in the middle of the 80s, so I am quite passionate about the 80s fashion. The fashion and style of that decade has a special place in my heart. For those who are nota ware, the 80s fashion is all about shoulder pads, polka dots, bold style, colours, and silhouettes. It was an era filled with ripped tights, biker jackets, oversized blazers and poof skirts. The fashion back then felt and looked completely different from what we have now especially for women’s fashion. The designs and colours were so bold and fierce. Women felt and looked strong wearing them.

If I could go back in time to a particular era, it will definitely be the 1980s. Here are some of the pieces courtesy of Harper Bazaar you would have probably worn back in the 1980s –

I wore pieces with shoulder pads well into the 90s. It was one of those fashion trends that just didn’t go away quickly which was great because I had the time to play around with the trend. Shoulder pads have a way of making the outfit pop pop out even more. This piece right here is so very pretty. The green colour is stunning and the design is so bold. I am loving it!

Polka dot dress, red wide-brim hat and matching belt

This is another piece from the 80s I really like. I was and still am a huge fan of polka dots. They’re so feminine and pretty. I love the way she is wearing this piece. The accessories take the outfit to a whole new level. It is simple but effortlessly chic.

I am happy to see current trends being hugely influenced by the 80s fashion. The big shoulders are somewhat back, the underwear as outerwear trend is really back and so is the oversized jewellery look.

What do you think of the 80s fashion? Are you a fan?
