Spring is in the air…
……and we can finally shed those winter layers and start thinking about lighter fabrics.
I thought this month I would look at spring workwear which could also be worn for weekend daytime wear, making sure that we make the most of our wardrobes.
First I took a lovely easy to wear wrap blouse in a modern ditsy print as a start point. It’s in a monochrome and lime print which works well with navy or dark denim, and the floaty sleeves make it perfect for these warmer spring days.
For the first outfit I teamed the blouse with a pair of navy ponte culottes for a smart but effortless look. Culottes are on trend this spring and a great alternative to a fitted trouser. As long as your top is a more fitted style, these shape trousers will work well.
For those who do prefer a more fitted slimmer shaped trouser, I put these great navy cropped trousers with the same blouse. This also shows how this top might work with cropped jeans for a weekend look.
Another option for office wear which would work well in a more casual environment is the ever versatile denim dress. As long as you keep the denim dark and the shape fitted, it can give you a smart but modern look.
You really can’t go wrong with nautical stripes for spring. It’s a must have in your wardrobe and can work so well for workwear too. This striped blouse is new in store and I couldn’t wait to try it with some tailored wide leg trousers for a workwear look. It’s a smart but easy to wear look that can easily be worn teamed with jeans or a more casual trouser at the weekend.
For my next outfit I wanted to try a different look again using stripes. These very modern trousers have just come into store and are great teamed with a simple black jersey top. They are definitely a workwear option with their structured shape but are a great springtime addition to your wardrobe and can be worn casually or dressed up for an evening look too.
For my last look I wanted to see if an occasion dress could also work for the workplace and I think if you choose a block colour and a chic structured design, it can definitely work. Just dress it down with a simple shoe, I’ve teamed all these outfits with a versatile canvas wedge sandal ideal for the warmer weather, and keep accessories to a minimum. A dress you might wear to a wedding or event could also be worn for work giving you maximum cost per wear, a winner all round!
