Somehow, another season is upon us, and we are thrust into that length of time when closet cravings are at their peak. Although the prospect of a fresh, warm season is thrilling, it also makes the styling process that much more daunting. Suddenly we are inclined to add pops of colour to every look, showing a bit more skin with each Celsius incline and all the while patiently sifting out the warm wools for the light linens.
Of course, last year’s stock of Spring pieces never quite seem good enough for us this time around. So begins the cycle…what does my wardrobe need this season?
The best part about Spring – other than the lively weather and the newfound urge we all have to sit on patios and go for walks – is the colour. Some years, the shade on everybody’s lips is coral, others it’s yellow, more recently it’s been colour blocking that has everyone’s attention, and more often that not, pastel colours are a must-have. This year, a refreshing take on traditional pastels has arisen – denoting flavours of mint, apricot, raspberry and lemon. Blouses, loafers, skirts and tanks are delicious in these shades, making my cravings turn from ice cream cones to silk sorbet. A new-found adoration that holds no hidden calories, but only implicates a small dent on your credit card – which is worse?
