What The Style Set Are Wearing This Spring

Each season a look will catch my eye.  The look that keeps catching my eye on social media (aka Instagram) this Spring is jacket, skirt, sneakers and cross-body bag. I am calling it Feminine Relaxed Chic. Not sure that will cotton on but it’s pretty, quick to throw on and comfortable for racing around and if you get it right – very cool. (Yes I was born in the 80’s so cool is my default word. I understand the word to describe cool now is ‘sic’. Just isn’t going to happen. Can you imagine if I started describing things as sic?)

Start with the skirt. Nothing says Spring like a skirt and a full length or mid length is a good way to ease you into sunnier months before you have a tan.

The Skirt

Full Length Maxi Skirt 

Fun, flattering and hides a multitude of sins.

Long Skirt

I am loving this one.

Maison Di Times Embroidered Maxi Skirt £59

Love the elasticated wide waistband.

Hi Lo Skirt

This is low at the back, high at the front – perfect to cover up the back of your legs and to show off your ankles and footwear)

Hi Low

Yumi High Low Floral Skirt £45

Great with a tucked in white t-shirt.

Coast High Low Skirt £99

Mix up your fabrics and wear this organza with a cotton top and sneakers for a glamorous low key look.

Metallic Creped Midi Skirt 

An easy way to wear metallic if you fancy it but feel it is too much near your face.

Pleated Midi

Yumi London Crinkled Midi Skirt £25

This rose gold skirt is a versatile colour and also comes in grey. A price that allows you to buy as an experiment!

The Top 

A plain T shirt if you have a loud skirt.

Whistles Short Sleeve Linen Tee £45

Whistles Tee

 

Slogan/Logo T Shirt 

I do love a slogan tee. (BTW a Logo Tee has the brand on it and a Slogan has a picture or words not branded… You probably knew that already – it has only just clicked with me!)

Rainbow T Shirt

True Religion Tee £70

Quite Gucci inspired.

Jane Norman Sassy T Shirt £16

Simple but sassy… 😉

The Jacket 

Denim Jacket 

Jessica Alba nails this look by adding a fitted denim jacket. It not only gives a bit of structure but will also keep your warm if the temperature drops.

Oasis Denim Jacket £45

This is a good length (to hip) and quite stretchy.

Denim Jacket

Leather Jacket 

I would personally find it hard it hard to wear a leather jacket in any colour other than black, although there are a lot of cream and pale pink jackets at the moment. (Mint Velvet is a good start if that’s what you are after)

Leather Jacket

Oasis Authentic Leather Biker Jacket £168

For the style and quality – this is a steal. Loving Oasis jackets at the moment!

Leather Jacket

Sneakers 

I am so pleased this look works with sneakers. Flats could look a bit mumsy and boots just need to be consigned to the back of your wardrobe.

Kendall & Kylie (yes Kardashian!) Flatform Trainers £169

The yellow! Platformed! Height and colour = love!

Kendall

Aldo Nydoilia Trainers £70

Ok, not for everyone, but did feel they had to be brought to your attention as they are so fun!

Aldo

 

Kurt Geiger Lace Up Trainers £99

These are classic and versatile. Not everything you wear has to be a conversation starter!

Kurt

Bags 

It has to be a cross-body bag! Keep your hands free to hold little hands and grab one of these.  I love these colourful ones.

Kurt Geiger Richmond Disco Bag £99

Disco Bag

Calvin Klein Saddle Crossbody Bag £110

Yellow Bag

Lulu Guinesss Lip Cross Body NOW £180

Lip Cross Body

 

Hope this has given you some ideas. I am looking forward to putting away some winter clothes and experimenting with this look!

Lots of love
