Even though I’m not actually considering spending more money on my wardrobe, there are a few key transitional pieces I have my eye on as I hope for spring to make an appearance. The weather today has been crazy, and I think a warm spell is long overdue, so I’ve been snooping on my revision breaks at what’s on offer for the new season.
1 ASOS: clear box clutch with winking eyes – £30 \ 2 H&M: biker pants – £24.99 \ 3 H&M: lyocell shirt – £24.99 \ 4 Weekday: Pinstripe blouse – £35 \ 5 Zara: two-tone wrap jacket – £45.99 \ 6 G-Star: denim jumpsuit – £119 \ 7 H&M: jumpsuit – £29.99 \ 8 Zara: printed front pleat dress with pocket – £59.99
This clutch bag is so adorable, not entirely sure if I’m okay with it being clear, but pouches are available to keep valuables discreet, so it rectifies that issue. It’d be a really fun way to jazz up any outfit. I am looking for new jeans or trousers (eternally) and H&M do fairly decent ones, so I might pop in and try these on, a good biker pant is useful in a wardrobe. Oversized shirts are the true lazy morning attire, and a really cool way to smarten up some joggers, or wear for a more casual work vibe. I’m in love with the jacket, and the jumpsuit from G-Star I spotted before the sale early December, I need it. The h&m version is cute and slouchy, for the ultimate casual street wear. The print on the Zara dress is divine – although I’m not sure on the cut for me.
The general consensus from most places is that SS15 will see boxy silhouettes, the return of the ‘oversized’ (yesss), jumpsuits, tassels/fringing, and a step towards the bohemian. I’m not going to mention bell bottoms, if I don’t talk about it then maybe it won’t actually catch on and people won’t have a 70’s revival. Looks like it’ll be an interesting and fairly eclectic mix, and androgyny is on the rise. I’m excited. Can the rain and snow stop now please?
What are you looking forwards to for next season? Seen anything you like, or are you just totally fed up with the current weather like me? I am absolutely in love with the Zara wrap jacket – I know the colours aren’t especially adventurous, but I haven’t invested in the blanket/cape trend of last year yet, so I think it would be a pretty good place to start!
Hope you’ve all had an amazing week so far!
