Invest In A Spring Suit

As we finally head out of lockdown and into Spring a suit might be on your shopping list. This one caught my eye for a couple of reasons.

** Contains affiliate links **

Jacket // Trousers //

First, it's a neutral colour which means you can wear it with other neutrals, on trend pastels or some of the gorgeous brights around now. Secondly it has a relaxed modern shape. The jacket is gently shaped to show off, or give the illusion of a waist and the trousers are a smart casual tailored crop.

It will dress up for the less formal office, down for casual days and the pieces can be split and worn independently.

Versatile Spring Jacket With Great Cost Per Wear

Spring jackets come in lots of shapes, but the blazer is a classic and this one in a gorgeous Rose Pink is more versatile than you might think.

Blazer

A blazer is a wardrobe staple and starting with a neutral colour like navy or camel will pay benefits. Once you have your neutrals covered though, adding an accent colour will expand your wardrobe. You might think a blazer isn't an essential item at the moment, after all we've been stuck at home for so long! But this little number can be dressed up and down as I have shown below.

This pink works on most of us and can be worn with both warm and cool tones. I've paired it with soft olive chinos for a casual meet up with friends (roll on Monday!)

Then with a smarter pair of trousers - perhaps for lunch out later.

Casual Spring Outfit Ideas

This week's YouTube video is a subset of my Spring Capsule Wardrobe. I've pulled out 7 pieces and created 18 outfits. I wanted to show you how you can create lots of options in your wardrobe, even with a small number of items. It's simply a case of choosing the pieces carefully.

I've used one pair of neutral jeans and the pretty floral skirt for the bottom pieces. For the tops I've chosen a sleeveless silk camisole which can be a little dressy, a short sleeve T-shirt and a long sleeve t-shirt style top. Then I've added 2 cardigans, a lightweight waterfall style and a chunkier cotton knit.

For accessories I've just used one pair of trainers, a scarf and a couple of necklaces.

Designer Capsule Wardrobe On A Budget

if you are thinking about investing in some new pieces for your wardrobe and have a favourite designer, you might want to check out The Outnet. Now especially, because they have some fantastic stock at the moment. With many designers collections not having sold well over the last year, you might find the exact piece you were lusting over last season but at a huge discount.

I thought I would give you an example with one of my favourite brands, Vince. While I love the brand, I don't buy often because even though the pieces are beautiful, they have a high price point. But at the moment the Outnet has 4 pages of Vince pieces and many are half price or less. In fact this gorgeous green skirt (which is perfect for this season's pastels trend) is 70% off and the brown silk blend trousers are 53% off!

I've put together a mini capsule wardrobe of Vince pieces and added a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood shoes and a Chloe bag, both also heavily reduced. This is a capsule that looks "this...

Spring Floral Dress Outfit Ideas

The key to buying a dress - especially at the moment - is finding one that is versatile. One that can be dressed up or down and worn different ways.

Dress // Cardigan // Trainers //

As florals are big this season, this one caught my eye. What I love about it is the variety of colours in the print; there are so many that you can pull out to use for finishing the outfit. I have used the blue, pink and cream, but will also wear it with yellow.

Made from lightweight Lenzing Ecovera the dress complies with the stringent sustainability requirements laid down by the EU Ecolabel. So if sustainability is important to you, you can rest assured that both the fabric and production process meet high environmental standards.

How To Wear Print Trousers

A pair of print trousers is a great Spring/Summer wardrobe addition because they can be so versatile. Dress them up or down and use the colours in the print to create your outfits.

I've chosen a wide legged pair in a muted print and styled them for work, casually and a more dressy option. Pieces like this are a sensible buy when we want to get the best cost per wear from every item in our wardrobes.

3 Spring Outfit Ideas

This week I am bringing you 3 Spring outfit ideas. 

OUTFIT 1

Nautical stripes mixed with red is a timeless Spring combination that always looks chic. For this outfit I've opted for an easy to wear jersey skirt in navy and white stripes, mixed with pops of red. I have brought the look up to date by pairing the skirt with a pair of trainers.

Jacket // Top // Skirt // Trainers // Bag //

OUTFIT 2

For the second outfit I have taken a classic Chanel style tweed jacket and modernised it with wide leg jeans. I have added colour with Chartreuse, one of the mini colour trends of the season.

Jacket // Top // Jeans // Bag // Shoes //

OUTFIT 3

For the final outfit I have used elegant neutrals. All of the pieces in this outfit are so versatile and can be worn with other pieces in your wardrobe. But together they make an incredibly chic but easy to wear look.
