While Spring may be (technically) in full swing, the desire to embrace new-season colours and patterns can seem a little bewildering given our current weather status- fresh florals don’t look so fabulous next to ice blue legs! With this in mind, I’m always looking for chicy ways to welcome Spring into my wardrobe in a climate friendly, fashion forward manner. The perfect solution for such a tricky transitional phase is a balanced blend of colour, texture, and composition- in other words, fake those new season colours with some old season warmth!
Pink is the perfect way to put a spring in your sartorial step, with the various hues and accents of this palette pleasing colour offering trans-seasonal accessibility. For this look, I opted to team this wool Benetton knit (currently €19,95 on sale) with my favourite plum blazer- the layering offers much needed warmth, while the fine knit avoids that bulked up winter look.
Black stretch skinny jeans (€35 from River Island) are a year-round staple that will work for practically any ensemble, and subtly tone down the rich, regal colours of the top half of my look.
The real accents of spring came in my dapper details, with this ornate lapel pin from Harrison Blake Apparel and pink pocketsquare complimenting my charcoal tie perfectly. In summer, I would simply swap this tie for a fun cravat or blush pink woven bow tie- remember, work your transitional staples around some seasonal accoutrements for a timely update to any look.
Finally, pink socks and my trusty brogues finished off this bright burst of berry goodness. So guys, what do you think? How do you tackle that tricky timeline between seasons? Be sure to let me know!
