The Look - Spring trends - What to buy and where to wear them
All you need are a few key items to easily transition your wardrobe from winter and it’s easier than you may think. Whether you’re going for a stroll around the Swan River or painting the town red, here are some spring trends to inspire your new season style.
Exploring the city
Spring is the perfect time to hit the pavement and spend the weekend strolling around the Swan River or admiring the wildflowers at Kings Park. Lululemon’s On The Move range is the perfect ‘in-between’ collection of clothing for activities where jeans won’t cut it and exercise gear is unnecessary. The soft fabrics and fresh spring colour palette of the women’s range is fun and ideal for casual weekend adventures.
For the man who doesn’t want to wear track pants or jeans, this season’s lightweight jogger pant is for you. They’re an effortless style trend this season and the loose fitted cut is perfect for exploring the city’s walking trails.
Grabbing a bite to eat
Ladies, if you’re going to invest in an item of clothing this season then look no further than a spring dress. Be it midi, mini or floor length, the free-flowing dress has returned in classic patterns, such as leopard, floral and stripes. Look for styles that have movement and feminine details, such as frills or a tie around the waist.
Guys, the time has come for you to embrace pants in shades of white, bone, cream, ivory and natural tones. Spring is the perfect time to road test this trend, you’ll be surprised how easily they team with any existing shirt or t-shirt in your wardrobe.
Going on a road trip
The weather is perfect for exploring our beautiful state with trips down south, up north and everywhere in between! If you’re hitting the road there are a few spring essentials you need to add to your packing list.
Sunglasses in any shade other than black and a matching sunglass chain, that not only looks chic, but will stop you misplacing your sunglasses while being out and about. Bronze Snake in Northbridge is all over this trend with fine sunglass chains that could be mistaken as a necklace. If you’re heading up north, then you’ll need to ramp up your sun protection with a wide brimmed straw hat. City Beach has a wide range of men’s straw hats that are stylish and easy to throw on. Finally, when was the last time you updated your overnight bag? The key to buying a bag is to choose one that is easy to throw everything in and hit the road – Country Road’s range of unisex duffle bags have a detachable shoulder strap and come in monochrome or vibrant shades.
Having a night out
The city is alive! Restaurants are buzzing and bars have lines out the door. If you’re heading into the city for dinner or drinks, then throw on a new pair of shoes and make a night of it!
Shoes not only complete an outfit but are an easy way to update your style. It’s all about neutral tones of tan, caramel and cream for men’s and women’s footwear this spring. A heeled boot is the perfect trans-seasonal shoe for ladies and is easy to pair with a dress, jeans or skirt. The classic loafer is the go-to style for men this season, as it not only complements shorts, chinos and light weight pants, but can also be worn throughout spring and well into summer.
