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.

4 Ways To Wear Striped Knits

I love a striped knit, especially if it's a multi coloured one because it gives you versatility over what to wear it with. They can be such a cheerful addition to your wardrobe and there are always plenty to choose from in Spring. I have picked for - one an absolute bargain and one a cashmere reduction - and shown you how to wear them casually and as smart casual looks. Which is you favourite?

Spring Blouse Styled 3 Ways

Every so often a print catches my eye and I just can't resist it. It happened with this one which I thought would be a perfect addition to a Spring wardrobe. It might be a little while before we can get dressed up, but it will be gorgeous with tailored white trousers for a smarter occasion. In the meantime I have styled it casually to show you how you can wear it now.

1. Blouse // Trousers // Pumps //

2. Denim skirt // Trainers //

3. Jeans // Boots //

I have pulled out the colours in the blouse for the other pieces in the outfits, my favourite being the first combination with what Boden call Copper Red trousers and pink pumps.

Here are some other pieces to style with this pretty blouse:

Mini Spring Capsule Wardrobe

If you are desperate to freshen up your wardrobe with some Spring pieces, start with this gorgeous combination of colours I featured in last week's YouTube video.

Mix blue, yellow and a pop of hot pink to brighten the way out of lockdown - fingers crossed.

Shirts are a must have for Spring and they are perfect as transitional pieces to wear with joggers and jeans now, or more tailored trousers and skirts later. During the warmer months, wear them open with a camisole underneath and a pair of linen trousers or shorts. I've included 2 in this mini capsule, along with a pair of comfortable jeans and a fun bright skirt.

Add a cardigan for cooler days and a bright pop of colour in a soft boat neck top. Then add a couple of accessories, including a scarf that pulls the colours together and an easy small bag, for a collection of easy outfits.

Outfit Ideas - Trench Coat 3 Ways

The trench coat is always a Spring wardrobe staple. This year is no different, because you can dress it down now with your joggers or jeans and up later if you are returning to the office or more smart casual occasions. I would recommend a single breasted option as it works better on those with a larger bust but can still be cinched in to show off your shape. 

Here is a classic trench coat shown worn 3 ways to get maximum versatility. I've chosen a mid range price point as this is an investment you will wear for years to come giving it a great cost per wear.

1. Trench coat // Sweatshirt // Joggers // Scarf // Trainers //

2. Dress // Boots //

3. Sweater // Trousers // Loafers //

Weekly Outfits - January Week 3

This week for my weekly capsule wardrobe (see last week's YouTube video) I decided to pick burgundy, grey, navy and pink. It's a colour combination I love (I also made a video about this colour mix)

Similar items where original are no longer available - Burgundy cashmere roll neck // Grey cardigan // Blue sweater // Pink sweater // Burgundy top // Blue print shirt // Print blouse // Jeans // Leggings // Blue trousers // Blue boots // Burgundy boots // Navy loafers // Scarf //

All the pieces in this mini capsule are old and some haven't been worn for a while. The print tie neck blouse for example is one I tend to dress up. So I enjoyed teaming it with some knitwear for a more relaxed look. Although most of the time I am at home wearing slippers(!) I have included footwear as one subscriber said she would like to see what I would wear with the outfits.
