Spring is fast approaching which means that soon the gloomy, dark winter weather will be replaced with warmth, light and life. Yay! It may be a tad early, however over here at YCB HQ we are already prepping our wardrobes for breezy afternoons in Hyde Park and al fresco coffee dates in Chelsea.
Much like a Spring clean, cleaning out your wardrobe and making way for lighter pieces of clothing can be very therapeutic and a good way to refresh your current look. Here are a few ways to update your wardrobe to welcome this lovely time of the year.
One of the nicest things about progressing into Spring is the fact that you no longer need to wear a big winter coat every time that you go out. It can still get chilly, however, which is why a denim jacket is perfect for Spring. This is a timeless classic and a piece that can be paired with just about anything.
Spring is also the time to start wearing skirts again. A nice, colourful patterned skirt is a great way to welcome Spring which is a season that is all about colour. Additionally, a patterned skirt is versatile and can look great with a solid-hued top.
Seeing the flowers come in is one of the best things about Spring and so a floral skirt is very fitting for this time of the year. Hot on our radar for SS19, we cannot wait to sport bold, playful floral patterns! These looks can be a nice light option for those warm Spring days and a strong look when paired with simple accessories.
Leading on from this, a good pair of sunglasses is essential for Spring. This is a time where you get a lot of sunshine even when it is not warm so you will want to protect your eyes but also add a healthy dose of style to your look too.
Another great accessory for this time of the year is hobo bags from places like Radley. These are the perfect combination of practicality and style as they can sit on your shoulder but are large enough to carry everything that you need on the go, such as a jumper for when the temperature drops later. They are crafted from fine leather which can add luxury and style to any outfit too.
A blazer is a great layer for Spring as they can be lightweight yet warm so they are ideal for those cool days or in the evening. Additionally, these are smart enough to wear to work but they can also work as part of a more casual look at the weekend too. We are loving the current trend that is sporting oversized menswear blazers, taking clue from Kendall Jenner!
Refreshing your wardrobe for Spring allows you to look and feel your best during this happier time of the year. It can be highly therapeutic to change your wardrobe and the above are all great additions that will serve you well during Spring and into the hotter summer months.
