As the weather slowly warms up, we mark the beginning of 2021 last quarter and the arrival of spring to the southern hemisphere. One thing we know about previous springs is that it comes packed with unpredictable weather conditions. Yet, after everything we had gone through in 2020, what this spring would bring is anybody guess? It is no surprise to see that the one thing we can control, fashion, has shown the return of the 90s inspired trends that welcome versatile, colourful, and comfortable clothing that is adaptable to the ever-changing needs of this new normal lifestyle.
Instead of dealing with the unknown this spring, we want to embrace the power of fashion to express ourselves and have fun. Knowing sunny and cold days are ahead help us ensure our closets have all the essential garments to enjoy the transition to warmer and longer days. The trick for a successful and effective wardrobe is to have a versatile and adaptable selection of basics that can be adapted and layered depending on the weather, mood, and your needs. These are our top selections:
Long straight pants
Straight pants are a must this season! It is one of the most flattering silhouettes for any body type. If you are after a statement piece, go for bright and fun colours. Otherwise, choose a classical and neutral style that complements the rest of your clothing collection.
You know the weather is warming up when the shorts come out, and your legs are on display. Get ready for the perfect sunny days with shorts that are light and comfortable. Don’t be afraid of introducing new colours to your wardrobe. Opt for soft and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen.
All-purpose lightweight jacket or cardigan
Choose a jacket that is lightweight and easy to style. We love materials that are versatile and comfortable such as alpaca wool.
Classic tees and t-shirts
Look at your tees and t-shirt collection and choose the ones that can be pair up with a jacket and the ones that would look great by themselves.
Comfy yet chic/stylish shoes
Whether you prefer casual runners/sneakers, flats, sandals, or leather shoes, opt for comfy and versatile shoes that suit most of your outfits.
Have fun with colours and bright prints that accentuate your curves and make you look and feel like a million bucks.
In the era of coronavirus, no essential list could be complete without a face mask.
