Spring Wardrobe Staples

Monday, 12 June 2017


So Spring has officially sprung! Well...sort of, British weather is very unpredictable and can't make up its mind most of the time. Spring is my favourite season because the weather becomes warmer, longer days with the sunlight, as it doesn't get dark until 8pm or so and most importantly I enjoy seeing the flowers grow and bloom. Admittedly, I don't own a lot of flowers or plants because I just can't look after them properly but I can appreciate the nature. As a metaphor, Springtime is defined as a time of growth, renewal and rejuvenation.

I was given the inspiration of creating a Spring Wardrobe Staples blogpost by Adore Me, which is a New York based women's intimates brand, that specialises in affordable designs in a curated monthly subscription service and their head of design is none other than Helen Mears (former Victoria's Secret Head of Design). I thought it was a great idea for a blogpost, especially as I want to aim to creating more fashion content and so I've put together some Spring key pieces - some on from my own wardrobe and some Polyvore sets for more variety.

DUNGAREES


Dungarees or Overalls, however you like to call them, recently I have just been absolutely loving them and I think they're a great spring staple piece. The last time I wore them was when I was 10 years old, so it was a pretty long time ago. They are seen as a childrenswear piece of clothing but as soon as Alexa Chung wore them, it became somewhat cool and trendy, bringing back the 90s trend and now its all over the catwalk and the high street. It is quite a versatile garment (not to mention comfortable!) because you can style them in various ways whether it's with a basic t-shirt, a stripy top or a nice blouse.

This is how I've styled them. These ones are from the New Look sale and what I love about them is that they aren't too tight fitting and the length cuts off just above my ankle. With the weather becoming nicer, I have been finding so many opportunities to wear dungarees. You can much wear any types of shoes with them but I think some Old Skool Vans would look awesome - it gives it that casj effortless appeal, kind of skater-girl tomboy-esque, which is a look I love.
