HERE’S HOW TO TRANSITION YOUR WARDROBE INTO SPRING
Posted on March 28, 2019
As temperatures slowly begin to rise, these top picks will ease you into a new season in style.
When it comes to spring fashion, knits get lighter, prints get brighter and shades get warmer. Whether you’re swapping your chunky jumper for a light cardigan or ditching the dark denim for a floaty midi skirt, it’s time to make way for new shapes and styles this season.
Constantine Tziambazis, Sales Manager at Harvey Nichols, advises: “We all know that spring weather can be quite temperamental so choose pieces that you can layer – a thin-knit jumper, midi-skirt and boots are perfect on those chillier days, while T-shirt, jeans and a light, tailored jacket can work as the temperatures rise. It’s also the perfect time of the year to experiment with some of this season’s bold colour trends, so add a splash of neon or statement brights.”
And upgrading your wardrobe for a new season doesn’t necessarily mean undergoing a drastic overhaul, the key to success is investing in the right pieces and working around them to suit your own personal style. Take a look at a few of our new-in favourites:
