Some call it the doldrums, others call it the winter blues. Whatever your preference, for the better part of the past few months we’ve been entrenched in freezing winds and bone-chilling temps. So there’s no denying that we’re all feeling a bit worn down. And while we’ve already passed the first “official” day of spring, a quick look at the forecast for the next week will quickly disprove the hopeful notion that warmer weather is around the corner. It may be discouraging, but one of the best methods for combating this sub-zero climate is injecting your wardrobe with a dose of springtime wears…
To begin, punch up winter’s stony, monochrome palette by adding a pop of bold hues to your outfits. From sorbet shades like pink and orange, to lemon yellow and minty green, neon brights are ideal for mixing up monotonous sartorial tendencies. We love this tulip-shaped silk skirt by Isa Arfen for its sunny disposition and delicate hint of whimsy.
Another of spring’s most prominent trends to begin integrating into your ensembles now is an element of metallic shine. This grey sweatshirt from Être Cécile features a rainbow spectrum of colour blocks rendered in lustrous metallic foil – perfect for pairing with a flowing dress while it’s still cooler out, or with vintage-washed jeans and slip-on shoes for a covetable weekend look.
Ladylike accessories are also the perfect pick-me-up to remedy the inertia surrounding our fashion sense as of late. Lustrous pearls or a jewel-encrusted clutch can bring a sense of excitement to even the dullest of bundled up winter looks. This lucite jewel cuff from Humble Chic will be sure to make a statement with its light-catching embellishments, especially when worn with neutral knits.
So although the weather may not have put a spring in your step just yet, at least take comfort in knowing your wardrobe can still be cheerful and bright, and that budding trees and blossoming flowers are surely soon to follow!
