Is it March 18th already? With Spring quickly approaching, it’s getting harder and harder to pick which season to dress for. This week’s Instagram looks, however, are telling us to ditch the winter coats and opt for a lighter option, to add a pop of colour to each look and to accessorise like your outfit depends on it – because why shouldn’t we look stylish on our long awaited sunny daily walks?
Channelling major y2k energy with the exposed thong trend, Chi Virgo is showing us how bold can be sexy. This look ties together three main style tips for the season, being the controversial yet hot return of low-rise jeans, bold, bright colours and mesh pieces. Looking for a way to stand out this spring? Add a hot pink accessory, or two.
Can you get more timeless than a trench? We all know that sometimes a jacket can be the be all and end all of your outfit; the piece which defines the look. Julia’s choice proves that a trench can turn every street into a catwalk. Elevated with a pair of squared toe boots, a silhouette to keep an eye on this spring, and a colour coordinated pair of flares to give us business boss chic.
Mastering the art of colour blocking, Peggy is standing out on our explore page this week with vibrant colours and patterns. Neon colours are everywhere, and this vintage Craig Green orange jacket is head-turning. Paired with a groovy pair of pants from Paloma Wool, this look is all the inspiration you need to get noticed this season. Style tip: the brighter the better.
Wondering how you can effortlessly add a pop of colour to your outfit? Take some tips from Alva Claire. She’s channelling all sorts of aesthetics – and we’re here for it. Let’s start from the top, the fluffy bucket hat which gives us alt vibes, a staple piece this season. A badass biker jacket which can make any look cool and the staple patchwork tie dye top, as seen on Rihanna. ASAI Takeaway is providing us with all the colourful mesh we need.
More bright colours and this time we’re here for the yellow and blue combo. Koleen is bringing back boho with the paisley printed scarf which she’s worn as a top, a style tip we should all be following this season. There’s no need to choose one aesthetic this season because as these looks have proved, mixing is key – Koleen is still rocking streetwear with her Jordan 4s and baggy cargos.
Can you tell Cierra is ready for spring? If you never liked the colour green, you will now. This look is head to toe bold – and we love it. Let’s start with the boots – a pair of lemon Miista heels which can literally match with everything this season, coordinate your colours like this or even use them as your colourful staple with a more neutral outfit. The Barragan cosmic swirl trousers are everything, combining two key trends in one-piece; bright colours and abstract patterns.
If spring was a person, it would be Wuz Good. Colour blocking has never looked better – with hot pinks, pastel blues and bright yellows, there is no excuse to not add colour to your outfits this season. Be extra and make it a co ord.
Not ready for colours and jackets just yet? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. For the odd breezy day we’re bound to have, we’re taking tips from Ivona. A pair of vinyl trousers is essential, they can be dressed up or down and still look stylish. Ivona has opted for a black turtle neck but even a hoodie or sweatshirt would look boss. Never have an outfit go a miss again and wear a pair combat boots. Timeless AND fit for any season.
Cardi B is dripping in Chanel, giving us hot mum energy. The perfect look for spring with a sweater on the top, keeping you cosy and comfortable during the sunnier days. Are stripes on trend? We think so. Add another pattern to your list this season. This spring is all about crazy textures. If you’re looking to be extra with your casual outfits, take some tips and pair your look with a simple stiletto.
We’re so ready for June 21st to come around so we can finally dust off our party dresses and Dua Lipa is giving us all the inspiration we need. In a Donatella Versace rhinestone dress, embellished with spring butterflies, we’re getting 00s Paris Hilton vibes. Glam is the way to go this season. The look is complete with silver knee high strapped sandals, an essential for your shopping basket.
Casual but cool, Dabz is pulling off the low-rise trend with style. A neutral toned look which is perfect for the change of seasons with the cropped gilet jacket but with just the right amount of colour tied in through accessories – a perfect way to introduce brighter tones to your outfit.
A lilac dream. This jacket is a perfect staple piece for spring, lightweight and bold. Stenie has styled the outfit with effortless colour coordination, a key trend this season. Pulling together several style points – with the knee-high boots, pearl necklace and rimless sunnies. Style tip: accessories can elevate your look.
