April Wardrobe Refresh
Having a little wardrobe refresh now and then keeps things fresh and exciting. I always have my eye out for wearable trends new-in the shops and each month will edit the best pieces in my blog.
This week, I've spotted a few pleasingly affordable items in the shops to get you excited as we sniff the first bouquets of Spring!
Return of the Wrap
Wrap skirts are ma-hoosive this season and so are metallics. This is why I have fallen in love with this River Island metallic mesh wrap skirt. Edgy. Would look fab with a black silk top and heels or with a t-shirt and flats for the day.
Here's another great, prettier wrap skirt from River Island. Lovely pattern and colours which would look gorgeous in the sunshine with a white top and white trainers or sandals.
Bardot style tops are also HUGE this season. This midi dress by Warehouse is only £49 - very 50's and would really very good indeed on a curvy frame.
YES you CAN have stylish wide-legged linen trousers - it is possible! I say that because when I am editing wardrobes, I often come across plain wide-legged linen trousers that are dull, shapeless and ageing, worn by women Britain wide because they are "comfortable". However there is no need to these days to substitute comfort for style, you can have both - these snazzy wide-legged linen trousers by Jigsaw, paired with the cool wooden clog-style shoes below would be a striking and useful item for warmer days to come.
