With the arrival of a new season, you may be thinking about the exciting yet expensive task of updating your wardrobe. Spring brings with it blue skies and sunshine, which both result in your wanting to ditch your black wardrobe staples that saw you through the winter months and instead, embrace all things bright and colourful.
That being said, you don’t need to spend a fortune to update your look for the season ahead. All you will need to do is invest in a few key and statement pieces that will see you right through spring and all the way into summer.
Keep reading to discover four ways that you can update your look for spring without breaking the bank in the process.
1. Choose multi-tasking garments
Rather than simply follow whatever bizarre trends that have been showcased on the catwalk this year, which quite frankly, only look good on 6ft tall, size 6 models. You should instead look to invest in high-quality garments that you can wear for multiple occasions and more importantly, for the highly unpredictable British weather.
Statement pieces such as kaftans, shirt dress, and shirt tunics can be dressed up or down, depending on what other clothes you pair them with, what accessories you choose and what shoes you wear.
Look for bold and bright patterns that scream spring, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different colours.
2. Scarf up!
If you don’t want to stop wearing your preferred neutral-toned clothes, then the most effective way to update your look is with a scarf. Thankfully, there are many different designs that are on trend this season, with the ever-popular nautical look still going strong, as well as floral patterns, both small and large, also being in favour.
Other designs you may wish to look out for include rainbow and polka dot styles.
Not only are there scarves available to suit everyone, but they are such a versatile accessory as they can be worn in multiple ways. From being thrown over a blazer, to wearing them around your waist as a belt, to being tied around your neck as a knotted necklace, the possibilities are endless.
3. Invest in key designer pieces
Fast fashion is not the way forward. Many shoppers may get excited at the prospect of running around a certain low-priced shop and fillng their baskets to the brim with the latest trending looks. However, not only are these clothes not of the best quality, they will not be able to be worn year after year. In fact, you will be lucky if they last the season.
Instead, look for a few key plus size designer clothing options that will ensure you stand out from the crowd, and will last you for many years to come.
Try and choose items that you know suit your skin tone and overall preferred style, plus ones that do not reflect a certain trend that is unlikely to last.
4. Embrace colour with your footwear
Another simple way to update your look for spring is by purchasing some fashionable footwear which include neutral colours that will perfectly match your bright spring colours.
With colourful boots, metallic mules and functional, yet fabulous, Birkenstock-Esque sandals all set to be popular this season, you definitely won’t look boring, even if you stick to your trusty wardrobe staples.
